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 recently purchased a used car from Summit Toyota and must say, I had an awesome experience. I dealt with Bob during the whole process, he is fantastic. I was upfront with my budget including down payment and how much a month I wanted to spend and Bob did not push for more than that I wanted. He was upfront, I never felt like I was being pushed or hassled. I would suggest Summit Toyota to anyone looking to purchase or lease a new or used car!

I had been looking at vehicle options for months now, either lease or to purchase. Recently my vehicle gave me no choice but to find an alternative..and quick! I'm a busy professional, so time was essential. I spotted a deal online from a different Toyota Dealership, but as this was a Saturday at 5:20 PM, that one was closed, while Summit Toyota was open until 6. I hurried over and they were able to work with that deal. It was such a deal, they were able to "up-sell" me easily without me feeling bad about it in the least, and in fact the additional features are well worth the additional cost. John stayed with me and helped me through the process as a first time lessee, staying well past closing time to assist. John and his manager were also able to help so that I could leave with the vehicle and come back to finish the paperwork on the following Tuesday. I'm sure they were happy to close the sale, but they were also doing me a favor. Excited to drive around in my first brand new vehicle, a 2020 Tacoma!

Worked with Todd Price on a new tacoma . Didn’t pressure me in to buying anything I didn’t want . Let me take a test drive buy myself. Very friendly staff. I think they gave me a fair deal , knowing these truck have a high resale value. Which makes them a great choice to buy . I can’t say anything negative about my buying experience.
