To Buy or To Lease Sub-header: Which is Best for You?

After you've taken a few test-drives and decided which Nissan you want to drive home in, you’ll need to decide how you want to pay for it. At our Nissan dealership in Holland, MI, we want you to have all the options clearly laid out in front of you so that you can make the best decision for your specific financial situation. Our Nissan financing team will help guide you to the auto loan or lease that is most affordable for you, and answer any questions you may have about the car-buying or -leasing process.

Whether you want to lease a Nissan Rogue or finance a Nissan Altima, you'll find the financing plan that works for you at our dealership. If you're interested in driving home the newest Nissan sedan or SUV with the flexibility of upgrading to a new model in a few years, a lease may be the best option. If you want to drive your new Nissan with no mileage restrictions and eventually own the vehicle with no additional payments, then an auto loan would be more appropriate.

Leasing Benefits

  • A lease term is usually between two and four years, so you can upgrade to a new Nissan frequently if you so wish.
  • A lease will usually require a smaller down payment than an auto loan, and you'll usually have lower monthly payments.
  • You only need to worry about routine maintenance and service for as long as you're leasing the vehicle.
  • Once the lease is over, you can either upgrade to a new vehicle or purchase the one you're currently driving if you've fallen in love with it.
