Benefits of Buying a Mazda

  • No Mileage Restrictions: When you own your own car, there are no restrictions to the miles you add to the odometer as you cruise around Boston, MA.
  • Total Ownership: If you want to modify, decorate, or otherwise change a car you have bought, you can! When you buy, the vehicle is yours completely.
  • Ability to Sell: When you purchase a vehicle, you’re able to sell it whenever you choose.
  • Financing Options: The car financing process is more straightforward when you buy a Mazda, rather than when you lease a Mazda. In the future, you can often refinance your car loan to a lower interest rate or monthly payments.
  • Less Cost Over Time: Buying a new car has a more expensive up-front cost, but the cost over time is often less when compared to leasing. With ownership, the cost becomes less expensive as you pay off your loan.

Benefits of Leasing a Mazda

  • Lower Payments: Leasing often means lower monthly payments or down payments.
  • Less Sales Tax: Most states have a lowered sales tax on leased cars.
  • Trade-Ins:  When your lease is over, it’s often easy to trade-in for a newer vehicle.
  • Great Coverage: Leased cars often have fantastic coverage, which means many maintenance problems will be covered by the dealer. Not having to worry about maintenance is one less headache for Wakefield, MA drivers.
  • High Approval Rate: It’s easier to get approved for a car lease, which makes leases ideal for individuals who’ve been denied for a car loan.
