To Lease or Not To Lease — That is the question

The car, the car, the car.  Can’t live without one.So much goes into a decision to buy a car, and so few options seem to be available for the economical buy.
The average price of a new car in 2019 was $34,217.  Who is buying a car?
It’s frustrating, but if you can come to appreciate getting in the door with a new car, you become part of the car buyers market and really, it’s as exclusive as owning a home.
Should I buy or lease?  It really depends on what’s important to you.
A lot of negative things have been said about leasing, but here are some things to consider:
>  You usually can get a lower, or the lowest possible monthly payment and get in to a new car with a lease.
>  Your maintenance is scheduled, and should be followed, and with that a solid report on you keeping
the car maintained when you either turn it in or buy it.  I consider this a positive over financing because you are required to maintain according to a certain schedule and if you buy it at the end of the lease, this scheduled maintenance helps the life of the vehicle.
>  Some monthly statements for leasing actually say “rent” when the bill arrives on a monthly basis.  It might help your psyche to understand that is what you are doing over the course of the 2-3 years you have it.
>  How do I resolve the money I put down to get in to the lease?  That can be a hard one and goes back to the fact you’re getting in to a new car, while not owned (you don’t own it when you finance it either, remember, the bank own’s it), you go in to the driver’s seat of a new car with that upfront down payment.
>  You are restricted to mileage.  During this time of the plague (virus), that’s not presently much of an issue for anyone.  Make sure you are ABSOLUTELY comfortable with your annual mileage choice, because you will pay per mile after that.
>  You need insurance for a lease just like a financed purchase.  You will be required to be a certain limits such that it is a lease, but there is comfort in knowing you’re covered.
>  Turning it in.  You have to plan for “wear and tear costs” to turn it in.
But before you are so eager to get out of it and into something new, you might consider buying it.  The great thing about buying a car you’ve leased the past 2-3 years is you know the car, and you know the person who has owned this now used car…LOL…you.
Who can buy a used car and know how the car was treated the minute it was driven off the lot until the present?  Buying the car you had been leasing gives you that insight.
Leasing is a managing process while you are in it because it is essentially a long-term rental, with the option to buy at the end of the lease, or turning it back in to the lessee (dealership).
Financing a car is a ‘free will’ approach to having a car.  Once you finance it, you just need to carry the right amount of insurance, make your payment and maintain it.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Do you use Flash cookies or Local Shared Objects?

Websites may also use so-called "Flash Cookies" (also known as Local Shared Objects or "LSOs") to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations.

If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

Do you serve targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
