Buy Or Lease Your Toyota Vehicle? Keyes Toyota Makes the Choice Easy!


Car buying is all about choices, and some of them are easier than others. The Toyota brand is an easy choice. If you have your heart set on something specific, like a Toyota Camry or Toyota RAV4, you probably found that easy too. Deciding whether to lease or buy that new Toyota car is a harder choice, but Keyes Toyota makes it a bit easier for our Los Angeles customers.

When You Should Lease

Reasons to lease at a glance

  • Less cash up front
  • Low monthly payments
  • No resale worries

There are many good reasons to lease. You won’t build equity, but on the other hand, you also won’t have to worry about depreciation, trade-in value, or resale value. If you don’t have a high down payment and want low monthly payments, you can still save month-to-month with a lease. And if you want a new Toyota model with all the bells and whistles, a lease may be a more affordable way to get what you want.

When You Should Buy

Leasing may be sounding good right now, but in fact, it’s not for everyone. If you have a long commute or put a lot of miles on your Toyota Corolla, you’re likely to see a mileage penalty. Using a Toyota Tundra as a work truck, or a Toyota Sienna for kids and family? You may be hit with wear-and-tear charges. Want to modify a Toyota 86? It’s not a good idea with a lease. Ownership comes with fewer strings attached, leaving you to drive in peace and not worry about your road trip costing you a lot more money than you anticipated. Your Toyota dealer serving Los Angeles can help with that while you’re exploring your financing options.
