What is the Difference Between Buying and Leasing?

What is the Difference Between Buying and Leasing?

Once you find the Hyundai vehicle that fulfills your driving requirements, you need to determine whether you would like to lease or purchase the model. If you have participated in one of these paths before or this is your first time acquiring a vehicle, we at Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg are here to walk you through the process of each option. So, after you read this overview, make your way down to our location to finalize your paperwork and drive away with a competitive contract!

Buying

Chances are that you or someone you know has purchased a vehicle before. This path is the best choice for drivers that want to see a return on their investment, because you will officially own the vehicle once you make your last payment. And, since terms last anywhere between four and seven years, you will be able to use your model as a trade-in in no time at all! So, if you are ready to see which Hyundai driving option you can afford, head over to our online Payment Calculator to find your buying power and potential monthly rate. Then, when you think you have found something that works, you can move on to the Get Pre-Approved form to receive your go-ahead in three simple steps. Bear in mind, this feature will not ask for your SSN or DOB, and it will have no effect on your credit score! Then, when you fill out the secure Finance Application, we will get in touch with our trusted lenders ahead of time.

Leasing

If you are not interested in committing to a long-term contract and want to experience the latest updates on the driving scene, then leasing might pique your interest. That is because it is synonymous with borrowing, and means you will be able to take home one of our top-notch Hyundai vehicles for an average of three years. In that timeframe, you won’t have to worry about a high monthly rate, because you will only have to cover the model’s depreciation while it is in your possession. So, if your needs are constantly changing, then this contract will be perfect, since you can change your mileage limitations with each new agreement. Best of all, you will be able to upgrade to one of the newer models on our lot or hand in the keys and walk away once your terms end, no questions asked. Talk about flexibility!

Inventory

When you are ready to begin your search for the Hyundai vehicle of your dreams, you can do so from home to limit your time spent at our location. To get the ball rolling, scroll to the top of your screen and select the model you prefer beneath the New Hyundai dropdown. After that, you will be able to sift through the various trim levels that we have in stock, along with using the Narrow Your Search tool to refine your viewing. Make sure to read the details about the mileage, trim level, VIN, and upgrades, so you can know what each driving option comes with. Once you think you have found the ride you would like to test drive, you can confirm its availability, request more information, and read the brochure to learn more!

So, what is the difference between buying and leasing? The short answer is that one is for borrowing and the other is for ownership! All that’s left to do is visit our Finance Department at Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg.

My experience was definitely one of a kind both salesman James Hough and his partner Philip Mitchell had helped me 100% of the time and made sure I was put in the right car for the right price. I felt as if one person from there management wasnt very reasonable or welcoming as the others were and just a bit unprofessional, but other than that I'd highly recommend stopping buy and going straight to James and Philip!

After test driving several vehicles, and with help from the great sales staff, I was able to find one that worked for me in both price and function. I was in and out with Matt and Bob in finance. I was very pleased with their attitude and help finding the right vehicle for me.

Worth the drive! After deciding to drive over 2 hours to look at cars at the Hyundai dealership side, I was thoroughly impressed by the management. When I asked the salesman if there was a standard course to drive around when taking a car off the lot to test drive, he stated "I want you to drive the car for as long as you need until you feel comfortable with it". I loved his response and I left the lot that day with the ideal car I went looking for. This is a dealership I would recommend to anyone, even if it involves a little bit of a drive.

Walked in with no appointment. Ask how long a wait to get the following done: 1. Oil change 2. Change right fog light bulb. 3. Replace hood struts. They told me about 1.5 hours. It ended up taking just a bit less, which is normally unheard of. They loose a star for the typical high prices at a dealer. Total bill $400+

We go back for the warranty alone and the credit service guy went above and beyond and Mr. Poha was son is awesome. I do not care for the manager though but luckily only had to work with him the first time. We are on our 2nd vehicle but we ALWAYS use Capital One auto Finance and literally walk in pick out the car we want amd its such a smoother process.

Kristyn was great! She knows her cars and was able to answer questions. When she didn’t have the answers, she got them. This was my first time buying from a dealership and I didn’t feel rushed or pressured. This car buying experience was great and I would recommend buying here. They worked with me and I didn’t budge on my budget! Thanks Pohanka Hyundai!

Purchased a new 2020 Hyundai Sonata from Pohanka Hyundai. I couldn’t be more pleased with how I was treated. My sales person Kristyn was very professional. Her Manager Adam made sure I was comfortable throughout the process. I am totally satisfied with my buying experience and would recommend this dealership to my friends and family.

Good experience

I really have to say thank you so very much to Brad, Kristin and Matt at Pohanka Hyundai!! They really did their very best to get me into the car I really wanted. It was a lot of number crunching and time spent to make this happen! I also took advantage of an extra maintenance plan and I know I'm going to be very happy to not have to pay for oil changes! Thank you again Matt!! You guys are awesome!
