Pros and Cons of Leasing a Truck

The perks of leasing a truck.

When it comes time to get a new truck, it can be difficult to decide between buying a truck outright or leasing it. Leasing a truck can be an awesome option for buyers who like switching things up often or who don’t want to deal with an older car. Read on for some of the top pros and cons of leasing a truck.

Lower Payments

Many consumers like leasing trucks because the payments are typically lower than automobile loan payments. This way, you can get the same model of car or better while paying less. If you have a set amount to dedicate every month to a car payment, leasing can allow you to get a more expensive truck than you would be able to with other financing options.

Get New Cars Frequently

If you get sick of your truck every couple of years, leasing offers a great way to change things up often without having to worry about reselling your car. The typical lease contract is 3 years, meaning that every 3 years you will get a brand new car with great safety features, no problems, and maintenance packages. You won’t need to worry about endless trips to the repair shop when you lease a truck, as you won’t have it long enough to incur many or any problems.

The Car Isn’t Yours

This is perhaps the largest downside to leasing a truck. When you lease, it’s the same as renting something for a period of time. You can’t do whatever you want to your truck and you have to keep it in great condition. You won’t be able to personalize your car or modify it beyond putting a pair of fuzzy dice on the rearview mirror.

You Might Have to Pay the Price

Just like with rental agreements, if certain conditions aren’t adhered to you have to pay a price. Leasing agreements can penalize you for going over the mileage, excessive wear, and tear, or returning the truck in poor condition.
