Ford Expedition EL Leasing vs Financing Joe Cotton Ford near Winfield, IL 60190

One of the hardest questions to answer when looking to upgrade your vehicle is whether to finance or lease. Both have their benefits, but both have their restrictions, too. Not to fret, though! Joe Cotton Ford is here to shed some light with our comparison on leasing vs financing a Joe Cotton Ford, Ford Expedition EL near Winfield, IL 60190. Our knowledgeable salespeople and Business Managers are also well-equipped to answer any questions, so please don’t hesitate to give us a call, or visit our showroom!

Sometimes deciding between the two methods of car buying can be simple. Ask yourself two questions. The first is how often are you interested in upgrading? Leases tend to last between two to four years, which can be great if you like always having the latest and greatest tech and are a pro at keeping your car in good condition. While upgrading relatively frequently is possible while taking the finance route, it can be more tedious due to depreciation and reselling your current vehicle. If you’re the kind of person who comes to loves your ride and keeps it for longer than four years, stick to financing. You’ll get more bang for your buck. If you come to love your lease, though, you can continue to pay it off and keep your vehicle as long as you want!

What’s the second question you should ask yourself in this decision between leasing vs financing your Joe Cotton Ford, Ford Expedition EL near Winfield, IL 60190? It’s a question that might require a calculator! How many miles do you drive per year? This will heavily affect your decision. If you commute a fair distance to work every day, exceeding 15,000 miles or more, leasing a vehicle will come with a heftier total cost. Financing allows you to drive as many miles as you want, whereas leases come with a set amount and every additional mile will cost extra money out of your wallet. If you take the train every day and use your vehicle primarily just for running errands, leasing is ideal. You only pay for depreciation while you use it, so the fewer miles your wheels roll, the less you have to pay. Dealers get the vehicle back and are usually able to certify these low mileage vehicles and re-sell them. It’s a win-win situation!

Weighing the pros and cons in the debate between leasing vs financing near Winfield, IL, can be frustrating. Come on down to Joe Cotton Ford near Winfield, IL 60190 and our staff is more than happy to talk it all out with you. We can even run some numbers and see which system will work best for you and your lifestyle! We hope to see you soon!

Like everyone else who orders new from Ford's website. You build your car, Ford sends it out to roughly 5 local dealerships in an area. From the start Joe Cotton Ford was very responsive, accommodating, not pushy, seem upfront and honest. Also gave me the most value for my trade. I dealt with Bob Driver. A real pleasure to work with. One of the top two car transactions I've had the pleasure to conduct in my auto buying career. Overall transaction was painless, timely, and not stressful. Would buy here again for sure.

Employee Bio:

After receiving my BS and MS in rehabilitation administration from Southern Illinois University I moved to Chicago in 1981 to work as a sales representative for Elmhurst Ford. I had attained the position of general manager by the time the dealership closed in March 2011. I came to work at Joe Cotton Ford in September 2012 and was asked to handle their Pre-Driven vehicle operations in 2013. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family. I like cooking and then reaping the rewards of my labor.

"The quality and reliability of service at Joe Cotton Ford is tops - we visited several local dealerships, and none live up to Joe Cotton Ford. They also have a great reputation for involvement in community service. Bob Dodds and Mike Krawec were both very helpful in helping us to find the right cars for our family - We purchased 2 cars from them - a 2007 Volvo and a 2014 Ford Fusion - we love both cars and are very pleased."
