Which Financing Option is Right for You?
Herrin, IL | Marion, IL | Carbondale, IL
A traditional auto loan offers plenty of benefits. Whether you're looking to customize your vehicle with performance upgrades or accessories, an auto loan gives you the freedom to personalize your car as you please. There's no mileage limit when you pursue an auto loan, so you can tackle long road trips with a carefree attitude. Ultimately, you're working towards total ownership of your car, so you can sell it when you're done.
If you're looking for a smaller down payment and lower monthly payments on your favorite new vehicles, a car lease makes more sense. While you aren't investing in ownership, you do get to drive your favorite new cars with a more affordable payment plan. Plus, once you're done with your car lease agreement, you can trade it in easily for a newer car and trim level. Auto leases don't require the long-term commitment that comes along with traditional car financing.
Still not sure which financing plan fits into your lifestyle? Whether you're from Marion or Carbondale, get in touch with the financing experts at Auffenberg Chrysler of Herrin. We'll help you evaluate your financial priorities and determine if you should apply for financing or explore leases.
