Get the facts here, and then come to our dealership in Cerritos when you’re ready for a test drive!

Why Buy a Car?

  • Drive as Much as You Want: When you finance a car, you don’t have to worry about mileage limits.
  • Make if Your Own: When you own the car, you have the option to customize your interior, get a new paint job, add an aftermarket stereo, or anything else you want.
  • Gain Equity: Each payment you make on your auto loan gets you one month closer to owning your car outright. At that time, you can either say goodbye to monthly payments or use your equity to put down a down payment on a new car.

Why Lease a Car?

  • Enjoy Affordable Payments: In general, down payments and monthly payments on a lease are more affordable than financing a new car.
  • Get the Car You Want: Because payments are lower, you’re often able to get a nicer car with more features when you choose to lease.
  • Drive a New Car More Often: Lease terms are usually shorter than financing terms. So if you like to always have cars with the latest features and that new car smell, leasing could be a great option for you.
