Car-shopping for your next vehicle involves intense decision-making. The first major question that you have to ask yourself is whether to buy or to lease your next vehicle. About 80% of auto consumers either pay cash or finance their purchase with a loan. Many consumers are fearful of the idea of forgoing ownership, which leasing requires, or they think leasing is confusing. It's better to educate yourself on the advantages and disadvantages of both buying and leasing in order to discover which option is going to be better for you in the long run.
