Your Leasing & Buying Questions Answered!

If I lease a new vehicle, am I getting a better deal than purchasing?  

Leasing does generally mean driving a new car for less money, but if you plan on driving a particular vehicle for longer than three years, purchasing might be a better deal. Our expert finance consultants can help you decide which option is better for your unique budget. 

What is an APR?  

An annual percentage rate (APR) is the amount of interest you pay. An APR applies to loans and leases alike. 

Can you explain residual values?  

The residual value is the projected value of the vehicle at the end of the lease. If you decide to purchase the Dodge car at the end of the lease, the residual value is the amount left for you to pay. 

How is sales tax applied to a lease?  

As mentioned above, sales tax is usually less on a leased car than a purchased one because you only pay sales tax on the amount the car is worth during your lease, rather than the entire value of the car. 

How should I determine what mileage to include in the lease?  

If you drive as many miles as the average person, with a few road trips here and there, 10,000 miles annually should be a great start. The good news is, Saco drivers can always add more miles if needed, for a fee. 

What is the shortest car lease available?  

24-months, however most of our leases are 36 months. 

What if I need to end my lease early?  

If you need to end the lease contract early, there is a penalty. Please contact our finance team if you need to discuss your options. 

What happens at the end of my lease?  

At the end of your lease, you can either return the vehicle to us (assuming it's in good condition and under the allotted miles) or buy a new one. You also have the option to start a new lease on a brand-new car.
