Should I Buy or Lease a New Mercedes-Benz Model at Keyes European?

When you shop at Keyes European for a new Mercedes-Benz near Calabasas, CA, you have two ownership options to consider: buying or leasing. The decision is seldom easy, so our local luxury car dealers will help you understand the benefits of each, and see that you make the best choice for your lifestyle.

When You Should Buy

Buying an automobile is the right choice for customers who prioritize pride of ownership, and building equity. In the long run, purchasing a car is less expensive than leasing – especially since you can pay the vehicle off, drive without a car payment for a while, and then get top value for it when you visit Keyes European and trade the car in for something new.

Another big benefit to buying a car is the fact that you can add as many options and accessories as you like, at any time. Plus, there are no mileage restrictions when you own a vehicle, so you can drive as much or as little as you want on a monthly/yearly basis.

When You Should Lease

With a lease, you have more flexibility in terms of the car you want to drive. When your lease is up you can return to your local “Mercedes-Benz dealership near me”, talk with our team, and decide whether you want to extend the lease, lease something new and different, or simply end the lease and walk away.

In the short-term, leasing is also a more affordable way to drive a nice car. Since you’re only financing a portion of the car’s overall value, your down payment and monthly payments are lower. Also, when you visit our nearby Mercedes-Benz dealership at 5400 Van Nuys Blvd. in Van Nuys, CA and opt to lease, the car’s warranty assures that you won’t pay much in the way of maintenance costs.
