Should I Buy or Lease?

Should I Buy or Lease?

If this is your first time purchasing a vehicle, then deciding whether to buy or lease might seem like a daunting task. We at Pohanka Chevrolet are here to alleviate your concerns by addressing both paths, so you can make a choice that adheres to your budget and driving needs. It is important to note that not one option is better than the other, and your decision is based on what your lifestyle requires! When you are ready to finalize your plan, visit our Finance Department.

Car Buying Tips

Before you even get started on your contract, you must decide which Chevy model fits your driving needs. Fortunately, we have a few tips and tricks to get the ball rolling to set you up for success. First, you must think about your driving needs and what body style will fit your requirements. If you are a daily commuter, then a compact option like the Malibu will certainly help you save on gas, so you can get the most out of your tank. If you usually bring a lot of people along for the trip, then an SUV like the Traverse of Suburban will certainly get the job done. After that, it is important to set your budget, which can be accomplished by crunching a few numbers in our online Payment Calculator! To start your search, use our inventory dropdown at the top of the screen.

Buying

Let’s get started by going over the avenue that most prospective drivers take to secure their potential vehicle. Otherwise known as financing, buying allows you to achieve full ownership by paying for the full cost of the vehicle you are keen on. Fortunately, you won’t have to break the bank, because we will split up the sticker price over a period of time that falls within four and seven years. Then, when you are finally ready to upgrade to a completely different model, you will be able to use the vehicle as a trade-in toward the one you are interested in taking home. Fortunately, we allow you to lay the groundwork before you walk through our doors by using the 30-Second Pre-Approval form to receive your go-ahead in the loan process. Then, once we receive your Finance Application, we will get in touch with our trusted lenders. 

Leasing

If you are the type of person that wants to stay current with the latest driving advancements, then leasing will certainly be in your wheelhouse. That is because you will basically be borrowing the Chevy from us for a window of time that ranges between two and four years. This makes the most sense for drivers whose needs change frequently, because you will be able to swap out your sedan for a pickup truck or SUV when your term ends. And, you will also be saving cash, because you will only be on the hook for the model’s depreciation while it is in your care. If you decide that leasing isn’t for you at the end of your contract, then you also reserve the right to hand in the keys and walk away. Or, you can always pay the difference to keep the set of wheels for good!

Should I buy or lease? Your decision depends on what you feel will make your driving experience an enjoyable one. When you are ready to lay the groundwork, visit Pohanka Chevrolet.

Juan A. took great care of me. This car purchase experience was honestly the best car buying experience I’ve had. There were no tricks, no pressure, we agreed on a price and did the paperwork. Mike C., the dealership's business manager, was terrific. He didn’t pressure me into buying additional warranties or add-ons. I am recommending these gentlemen to everyone I know, thanks, guys!

Great job with my most recent service appointment. Pohanka makes it easy to get an appointment, the service hours are very convenient, the service was quick, and they did a good job. I have a GMC and a Chevy dealership in Leesburg near my house, but it's worth the extra drive to Pohanka.

I was assisted by Mr. Mina Azez. He was very helpful, courteous and professional. I was/am very impressed with his willingness to assist me in getting my Lexus serviced. He is a "definite asset" to Pohanka Lexus. I would highly recommend him to others. Mina, I know I thanked you last night when I picked up my car, but I wanted to say it once more ...Thanks again. Happy 4th of July!!!

Highly recommend Pohanka Chevrolet and Anuj! We had a great experience, which everyone knows is not usually what’s expected when you go to purchase a vehicle. Anuj was immediately responsive and in contact with us and met us when we pulled in (mask on and all give Covid). He had the car we were interested in ready to go and was great at going over all the features before our test drive. He entertained our indecisiveness regarding color and even brought out another car for us to see the interior. When it came time to start the paperwork it was the smoothest transaction we have ever made! And we’ve bought plenty of vehicles in our lifetimes. Anuj made sure to get us every discount we could qualify for and Chevy was offering a great incentive. We agreed upon the price on the first go- shocking I know! The entire process was great, go see Anuj!

Had a flat tire on my new Equinox. Called the service department at 7:00 pm. They made sure they had the matching tire available and invited me in that night! Sam was my service rep and she was simply fantastic!

I found a used Highlander online at Pohanka Chevrolet that appeared too good to be true and decided to make the 3 drive to see it. Elijah was our honest and knowledgeable salesman that facilitated the whole process. Financing was simple and straight forward thanks to Hunter. I would recommend this dealership for every aspect of the car buying experience. I got a beautiful vehicle for a more than fair price. Well worth the drive!

Had to get my transmission replaced and thought it was going to be a tough ordeal to go through. I was wrong. The service consultant, Art, was a huge help. Great communication through every step of the process and followed through on every promise. I've had a rough time dealing with car shops but these guys did a phenomenal job. Got my car back in great time as well. While I always try to do my own work I would definitely feel comfortable taking my car back for any major work.

My brother has been using Pohanka Chevy service for years and has convinced me to do the same for my Chevy under warranty as well as my other older owned GM vehicles. I live in Bethesda so it is a bit of a drive but their service hours, service staff and weekend times make it worth it.
