Should I buy or lease when I buy a Honda model? That is a question that every driver should ask themselves when shopping for a new vehicle.

For those that may still be confused, let us offer a quick summary.

Buying is more costly, but dealerships are more flexible in terms of payment options and you have complete ownership, meaning the car is yours to do with as you please.

Leasing is less costly, but dealerships are not flexible in terms of payment dates and you only have joint-ownership, preventing customization and personalization of your vehicle.

In terms of benefits and cost-effectiveness, buying a new vehicle is the most efficient option. However, that is ignoring the income and financial situations of the majority of drivers who may not have the necessary funds or consistent income to support the increased payments of a financing plan to purchase a vehicle.

Furthermore, some drivers might favor leasing due to the fact that this doesn't lock them into the purchase of a vehicle. A driver might lease a Honda Fit, but, upon completion of the lease contract, may then want to, and have the option to, upgrade to a Honda Civic. If you fully buy a vehicle and don't like it, then you're stuck with it.

While this works as a general guideline for the financing vs leasing debate, there are still many additional details to cover.
