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!

Let me walk you through my purchase at Summit Toyota. I went to look at a variety of Toyota vehicles because my current Toyota lease was coming up within the next year and owning a Toyota is probably the only thing better than sliced bread. I was not planning on purchasing one of these vehicles this day, but instead merely wanted to feast my eyes on my options. I knew when the right deal came along, I would not have much time to go to the dealership and snag my new ride (let's be fair, it's a Toyota and none of them will sit long on a decent deal). Summit Toyota was the only option after a bad experience at another dealership. When I arrived at the dealership one morning, IAN (the salesman) greeted me and we test drove a Tacoma off road. This was the only Tacoma on the entire lot and I was certain it would be sold any day now. After a no-pressure but thorough test drive, I knew I had to purchase this vehicle before I left. IAN (the salesman) took me on a routine test drive route allowing me to test the ability of the vehicle in a safe manner and explaining to me each and every feature the vehicle had. He answered every single ridiculous question I had. IAN (the salesman) is truly a Toyota expert and put my knowledge of Toyota vehicles to the test. I test drove exactly zero additional mileage guzzling beasts of Toyota vehicles. IAN (the salesman) told me he would get me a quote on the Tacoma right away and it would include getting me out of my current Toyota vehicle and into this new incredible truck. The quote came back well under what I anticipated due to IAN (the salesman) and Bill (the sales manager) hard work. Needless to say, I purchase the truck on the spot and drove home a couple hours later. Why did it take so long you ask? Easy answer.. there was a line of people in front of me to go through finance as they were purchasing their new Toyota machines that will likely outlive all of us on inconceivable deals. While I was waiting my turn, IAN (the salesman) kept me entertained and we had great conversations about Toyota vehicles. IAN (the salesman) is the greatest salesman I have ever dealt with and I cannot recommend him any more to anyone. I grabbed almost all his business cards and have been distributing them to anyone that mentions a new car to me. Summit Toyota made my purchase a great experience and I would return in a heartbeat, although we all know I won't have to (I drive a Toyota).

I've purchased cars from many dealerships before but Summit Toyota of Akron is by far my favorite. They're super friendly and don't try to push you into buying something. My salesmen Todd was very helpful and informative. I walked out of the dealership with the car of my dreams. A car I never thought I would be able to own. Now I am part of the family there and when your family you get free oil changes, tire rotations, and car washes. Any question or concerns I have are answered quickly by the service department and they're always willing to go the extra mile to make sure I am happy. I can't say enough good things about this dealership.
