Car Leasing vs. Financing: The Differences




Often none. Voluntarily making a down payment, however, will help reduce your monthly payments.

Down Payment

Depends on the dealership and incentives. Voluntarily making a larger down payment will help reduce your monthly payments.

Small, as they are based only on the vehicle’s depreciation throughout the lease term.

Monthly Payments

Determined by full price of the vehicle and terms of financing offer. Use our payment calculator to estimate yours.

Pre-determined, generally between 10,000-15,000 miles per year.

Mileage Restrictions


Must adhere to manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule, cannot exceed normal wear and tear, and cannot add modifications.

Care and Maintenance

At owner’s discretion.

You will return the vehicle to the dealership, and if applicable, pay any fees for excess mileage or damage. Breaking your lease early will also result in a fee. At this time, you can purchase the car at a pre-determined price, lease or buy a new vehicle, or walk away.

End of Payment Options

You are free to sell the car privately or trade it in to a dealership at any time, but you will only receive the title after paying off your loan.
