There are multiple options if you want to change your routine in some way for 2017. You can, for example, join a gym. Do you know what else? You can lease a car at Folsom Lake Ford.

Of course, you can also buy a car at our Ford dealership. Doing so will give you full ownership. This means you will be able to modify the vehicle with Ford parts near Sacramento, CA if you choose to do so. You will also be able to trade the car back in once you’re ready to sell and buy a new model.

However, we really wanted to talk about leasing since that option is often overlooked by our customers. Here is a quick breakdown of how leasing works.

You can think of a lease as a rental contract. Car ownership still belongs to the dealership. Lease contracts are usually about three years. When the contract is up, you can start a new contract with a new vehicle. As you can probably guess, this is a preferred option for people that enjoy driving a new car and taking advantage of the latest models and technology.

We are always asked whether it’s cheaper in the long-term to buy or lease. It really depends. Leasing tends to have a lower or even zero down payment, and you’ll almost always pay less per month than you would with buying a car. Insurance, though, will be higher. There is also the fee of a new lease contract every three years.

Visit our finance center regardless of whether you decide to lease or buy. You could very well be driving off our dealership in a new 2017 Ford F-150, 2017 Ford Escape, or any model of your choosing. Stop by and talk to our financial experts at Folsom Lake Ford today!
