Auto Loan

If you like working towards ownership, an auto loan is the way to go. There are no mileage limits when you opt for a traditional car loan, so you can take cross-country trips without worrying about your miles. Since you're working towards ownership, you can also customize your car, truck, or SUV. Feel free to upgrade your sound system or invest in seasonal tires. Car loans also make it easier to trade in your vehicle every few years. Since you're investing in ownership, the monthly payments might also be higher than a lease option. You can expect a higher down payment as well.


Car Lease

Do you like the idea of lower monthly payments? Car leases typically have a lower monthly auto payment, and require a lower down payment than car loans. With less money going to interest, you can upgrade trim levels or invest in features that are traditionally more expensive. With a car lease, there's no long-term commitment required. You can try out one make and model for a few years and trade it in for a newer make and model. However, your payments aren't working towards ownership, so you can't customize your vehicle. Keep in mind that auto leases have a mileage limit, so if you have a long commute, a lease might be less beneficial than an auto loan.
