Buy vs Lease in Austin, TX

Buy vs Lease in Austin, TX

Visit Charles Maund Toyota!

If you’re looking to bring a new car home, but you don’t know which kind of contract you want to opt for, it can be confusing trying to decide whether to buy or lease. That’s why we at Charles Maund Toyota are here to help you make your decision. If you have any questions about either avenue, contact our team today!

Buying

The most traditional form of automotive acquisition is buying, and more specifically, financing. When you opt to finance, you break up the large sticker price of a new model into more manageable monthly installments. All you have to do is contribute a down payment when you drive your car home, and then pay the rest over four to seven years. Then, when this period of time is over, you are the official owner of your vehicle and can do with it what you please. Trade it in, sell it, or keep it payment-free. This method is a long-term, but worthwhile investment!

Leasing

Leasing, on the other hand, is more like borrowing. You can choose to take home a vehicle for an average of two to four years, and during that time you’re only on the hook for its depreciation. Since all of the cars that we lease out are new, you can also be sure you’ll have the latest automotive updates on your model, and won’t need frequent maintenance. Then, at the end of this shorter and more flexible time period, you can upgrade to one of the newest vehicles on our lot. Or, if you want to pursue other avenues, you can simply hand in the keys and walk away. This method is better if you’re looking for a short-term, affordable commitment.

Inventory

Whichever path you choose, you’ll need to find the ride you want to secure first. We make the search for your dream car easy by keeping a stocked inventory and providing easy search tools. When you navigate to the top of our website, you’ll see New and Pre-Owned tabs, which you can double-click in order to access our listings of available models. Instead of perusing through this full list of vehicles, we invite you to use our Narrow Your Search tool on the left to create a more cultivated page with options that adhere to your preferences. You can sort based on features like fuel economy, color, and price. Then, once you find a few cars that suit you, click on their profiles for more specs and to confirm their availability!

We hope this information can help you decide whether to buy vs lease in Austin, TX. Visit us at Charles Maund Toyota once you choose, and our Finance Department can set you up with a contract!

Angel is perfectly named. When I called and said my Prius C would not start, he walked me through finding a direct connection to the battery (under the right rear passenger seat) to get the car started. He helped me get the spider crack in my windshield fixed, discovered quickly that I only needed a battery, and found a way to help me with a coupon that gave me a much needed discount on replacing the wipers and the battery. He also let me know what needed upgrading in the near future and that my tires were in excellent condition. Angel is worth his weight in platinum.

I'd give five stars, but I was very annoyed about the hard press for me to pay $3000 for an extended service plan. I told the salesperson right up front that I didn't care how hard they tried to get me to purchase it, I would not do so, but they kept trying anyway. I HATE that. But other than that, it was a very positive experience.

I had my usual oil and filter change scheduled for this visit, and KP Kirkpatrick coordinated that plus a very needed seals and rings replacement which I had forgotten about. I was in and out in great time, even with the other maintenance item. KP is always on top of the things I need to service on my car, even when I'm not. Thanks to Charles Maund Service Department and thanks to KP Kirkpatrick for a great experience, as always!

Hi Mark, I wanted to personally thank you for your professionalism, timely communication, and great service you provided throughout my claims process. This was the first time I've had to deal with a problem like this, and you far exceeded my expectations. I won't hesitate to come back, should I need similar repairs in the future and I'll gladly recommend you to others. It means a lot that I can bring my vehicle back to Charles Maund where it was ultimately purchased, for all it's needs. Thank you for taking good care of your customer and the car. I have to say, I'm very impressed with how you and your team detailed the exterior upon completion. The car looks and smells brand new. Coming from a person who strives to keep everything immaculate, that shouldn't be taken lightly. Your attention to detail far exceeds any other car wash/detail I have paid for in the past. Please make sure to share this email with your supervisors so they are aware that you have a very happy customer.

Can buying a car be a fun and dare I say empowering experience? For weeks and months I have been thinking about how great an experience I had buying my car at Charles Maund Toyota. Car buying is nerve-wracking, exhausting, and I met my share of icky car salesmen in my search at other dealerships. This, I walked into and left with my car keys, happy and confident in my choice. THANK YOU, Constatin and the whole Charles Maund team.

I dropped off my tacoma for 20k mile service. I told them about a couple issues I was having. They completed the service ahead of schedule, did the oil change, and addressed the issues I was having. The truck was ready when i arrived. The only thing I wish they did was run the truck through the car wash.
