Do you want to buy or lease your new Mazda model? Each option has perks, which our team can discuss with you.

Many of our customers dream of owning their car. When you buy, you can put as many miles on your vehicle as you wish, taking it for many family road trips in the future. You'll also be able to customize it with parts and accessories if you choose.

Buying has other advantages. If you keep the car in good condition, it should retain a high resale value. Moreover, owning the vehicle means you'll build equity. The longer you own the car, the greater the chance that you can lower your annual or monthly auto insurance premium.

What about leasing? A lease is like a two-to-three-year rental agreement for a vehicle. You'll potentially benefit from lower down payments, meaning you could get a higher trim level. At the end of your lease, you could buy your model and keep it or try something new.

Many drivers enjoy leasing their vehicles because it ensures they get behind the wheel of something new. Certified Pre-Owned leases may be available, but it depends on the dealer.

Another significant benefit to leasing is that routine maintenance may be covered under warranty. This means you might not be responsible for the out-of-pocket cost of oil changes, tire rotations, etc.

Whatever you decide, we're here to help you pursue your chosen path.


Another way drivers can acquire their future Mazda is by financing it. This involves taking out a loan to pay for the car, which you'll pay back in monthly installments. After you finish the payment cycle, you'll own the vehicle outright.

Financing has many similar benefits to buying. However, one major reason drivers finance their cars, aside from the fact that they want to eventually own it, is that it helps build credit. Even if your credit is less than ideal, you still may be eligible to finance a vehicle. If you make monthly payments on time, you'll positively impact your score.
