Buy vs Lease near Kent, OH

Buy vs Lease near Kent, OH

Do you usually purchase your vehicles for their full cost and want to learn about leasing, or vice versa? That is why we at Summit Toyota of Akron have a team of dependable financial representatives that are equipped with the know-how to help you secure a low monthly rate no matter which avenue you take. Before that, we will fill you in with all of the details of each path so there isn’t any gray area. Then, you can swing by our location to finalize your contract and iron out the details on your new vehicle!

Leasing

One option that more and more commuters are taking as time passes is the route of leasing. The reason why drivers are choosing this path over buying is because it allows them to experience the latest automotive updates the moment they land on the market. That is because you will basically be borrowing your RAV4 or Corolla from us for a period of time and miles of your choosing. And, since terms last an average of three years, you will be able to have a new ride in your arsenal far more often than if you were to buy. The best part about choosing leasing is that you will only have to pay for the model’s depreciation and the mileage that you travel, which will be a fraction of the price of buying! Then, you can upgrade, pay the difference toward ownership, or give us the keys back and close out your terms.

Buying

If you want to see a return on your expenditures, then you are definitely going to want to buy instead of lease. Otherwise known as financing, taking this option allows you to achieve full ownership once your contract comes to a close, which will be anywhere from four to seven years. All we do is split up the cost after you contribute your down payment, and you will slowly chip away at the sticker price with a monthly bill. Then, if you ever do want to upgrade, you can simply use the vehicle as a trade-in to lower the cost of the model you are interested in. If you want to find out how much you can afford, head over to the Payment Calculator to find your prospective monthly rate. Then, we will have a couple of loan options ready for you from the moment you walk through our doors when you fill out the Finance Application. 

Inventory

Now, all that’s left to do is begin the shopping process! Luckily, we are constantly updating our online inventory, so you can find a few driving options that spark your interest right from home when you use the corresponding links at the top of your page. It is important to note that if you are looking for a pre-owned option, you will have to go with the path of buying. When it comes to fuel-efficient rides that put a premium on performance ratings, consider taking home the Camry or Prius. On the other hand, if you require a model for your entire family, then you can’t go wrong with the 4Runner or Sienna!

Once you decide whether to buy vs lease near Kent, OH, make your way down to Summit Toyota of Akron. We have accommodating hours for your convenience!

I was looking to trade in my lease a little earlier than expected but Dan Schrier was absolutely fantastic about working with me. He made sure I left the dealership happy and in a car I loved. I highly recommend asking for Dan if you're interested in getting yourself into a Toyota!

I went in looking for a new vehicle from this dealership and wasn't very prepared for the buying process. The staff helped me and was super informative. They helped me decide on the direction I wanted to go with a vehicle and figured out all of the options I wanted. At the end of the day I did not buy a car from them but regardless they helped me and were friendly anyway.

The buying experience at Summit Toyota was excellent thanks to Todd Price and Billy. Todd's easy going personality made us feel welcome and not pressured to buy. He took his time to explain all the features of the vehicle. He was very informative compared to other dealers we visited. We would recommend Summit Toyota to anyone looking for a vehicle.

Summit Toyota contacted us immediately via phone and email and we scheduled a test drive. There was no high pressure, just a great deal we were able to accept and purchased the car the same day. Bob Watterson was our friendly, professional Sales Person. He followed-up with us phone a few days later to make sure we were completely satisfied with our purchase.

Wasn’t pleased how I was spoken to on the phone by the sales man that I will not name. I had questions he didn’t want to answer then he flat out told me he was too busy. I was in the market for a suv but I got what I needed some where else.

Went into the dealership with one specific SUV in mind. Jason was extremely helpful throughout the buying process. We arrived near closing time and we never felt rushed or pressured. Jason is a HOOT, I was so amused with his humor and service. I have never had such a pleasant car buying experience. He answered all questions and if he wasn’t sure he asked his manager for guidance. We decided to purchase the vehicle but could not take it home due to a defective seatbelt. Jason assured it would be repaired the next day and he would deliver the car to our home in Cleveland WOW! Two days later he delivered on that promise and brought all paperwork for us to sign. This is top-notch customer service and other car salesman should take note. I highly recommend Jason for a great car buying experience.
