Buy vs Lease near Oak Park, IL

Buy vs Lease near Oak Park, IL

If you’re currently stuck between whether to buy or lease your next Lexus sedan, crossover, or SUV, we at McGrath Lexus of Westmont wish to offer our assistance. Since both avenues have their respective benefits, you stand to gain in different ways, depending on your goals, budget, and lifestyle. So, if you’d like to review your options, head over to the dealership during our business hours! We’d love to see you here soon.

How Does Leasing Work?

In recent years, leasing has experienced a significant growth in popularity for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, customers love that these plans let them drive the latest models for a more affordable rate since you’ll essentially be borrowing the vehicle in question for a specified amount of time. Plus, once it’s over, you can choose to lease again, walk away, or purchase the Lexus for an adjusted amount. That being said, you should be aware that you’ll need to stick to a certain mileage allowance, which means you’ll need to keep tabs on how much ground you cover.  

Buying a Car

On the flip side, we have the more traditional route of buying a vehicle. The vast majority of the time, this is accomplished with the help of loan, as this enables you to gradually pay off the balance instead of shelling out for the full price all at once. Although this means you’ll have to pay interest, you’ll get to drive the Lexus as much as you please as long as it’s yours. Furthermore, once the loan has been fulfilled, you won’t have a car payment until you purchase something else in the future. Although you’ll have the freedom to either hand the car down or trade it in, you’ll need to maintain it as it ages, which can become expensive.

Which Path Is Right for Me?

Ultimately, you’ll need to weigh a variety of personal factors to determine whether buying or leasing makes the most sense. Thankfully, if you get stuck or simply can’t reach a conclusion, our team is here to assist! During your consultation, we’ll ask questions about your driving needs, current budget, and other aspects, as these factors will help us determine which avenue is better suited for you. For instance, if funds are low but you have your heart set on a brand-new ride, then you’ll want to give leasing a try. Alternatively, if you intend to view the Lexus as an investment, then a purchase is likely the better choice.

To hear more about whether to buy vs lease near Oak Park, IL, stop into McGrath Lexus of Westmont whenever you have a free afternoon or Saturday. We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business!

By far the best car buying experience we have had! This is our first Lexus, but definitely not our first SUV purchase. We came in with a simple idea of what we were really looking for in terms of color and features. Alan Stern in sales showed us a few models and colors, took us on the lot, test drove a couple and we found the perfect car! The buying process went fairly smooth and we ultimately left with a great purchase price, thanks to Aldo in finance! Everyone at Lexus in Westmont is very helpful and the atmosphere is welcoming. Highly recommend checking them out!!

I've been taking my 2016 RX350 there for the basics, oil change, alignment, etc. since it was purchased there. Casey Komosa, a Service Advisor, has been terrific to work with. Fortunately, with Lexus reliability, I have required no repairs other than basic maintenance and a minor recall. If/when I do need out-of-warranty repairs, McGrath will be my first choice. Their whole team, from the time you walk in, to the time you leave deliver a friendly, customer-centric experience. Keep up the great work!

Always an AMAZING experience! Most recently, Joe Scala assisted me with my Lexus purchase. He was kind, patient and engaging throughout our interaction. Joe also made a genuine effort to engage my three sons as well. His attention to everyone involved was exceptional...Truly client-centric through and through! Additionally, Joe’s knowledge of the Lexus brand coupled with the vehicle I ultimately purchased was AMAZING and sealed the deal! Thanks to the entire team in finance, Aldo, and our Delivery Expert, Ben...both were both exceptional, thorough and knowledgeable! I highly recommend Joe and team at McGrath Lexus!

Today, I brought my Lexus 350 in for General services and Details. Dean, was the associate in charge of my services and he was fantastic. He explained everything to me that was going to be served on my vehicle and an estimated time it would completed. He took me over to the office were I could get my loaner car. Dean, asked if I had any questions and told me to have a good day and I would be hearing from him around noon. The young lady with the loaner car was awesome, also. We, had a good conversation about the loaner car, family and children. Beautiful spirited young lady. When I returned, Dean explained everything that was served on my vehicle and that I had a Recall and I would have to come back when the part came in. I also went to speak to my sales associate Mel Owen who offered me water 💦 or coffee ☕️. We talked about how I was enjoying my Lexus. He was doing terrific. My outing today with McGrath Lexus was great on this hot 🥵 day.
