Buy vs Lease near Canton, MI

Finding your next set of wheels is only a small portion of the purchasing process. After you have that taken care of, you have to decide if financing or leasing will fit your budgetary limits. We at Dunning Toyota understand that this can seem like a daunting task, which is why we vow to walk you through the entire process one-on-one and show you the perks of taking each route. After that, the decision is totally up to you! To learn more, you can visit the experts at our Finance Department today. 

How Do I Lease a Vehicle?

Gaining more traction with each year, drivers are turning to leasing because it allows you to experience the various updates that are happening with each iteration. Synonymous with borrowing, leasing lets you take home your soon-to-be ride for a predetermined mileage and period of time. You might find yourself wondering, “What is the positive of leasing if I can’t keep the vehicle?” The best part about going down this path is that your down payment and monthly rate will be a fraction of the cost of financing because you will only be paying for the vehicle’s depreciated value. Then, once your term is complete, you can either upgrade to one of the newer models on our lot, hand in the keys and walk away, or pay off the remaining value if you have fallen in love. 

Buying

Financing is completely different than leasing because you will own your vehicle at the end of your term. This is because our Finance Department will break the full price of the automobile into easy-to-manage monthly increments that you will pay off for a timeframe that you decide when you visit us. This timeline is usually dependent on your down payment, so if you want to complete your term faster, you should put down a larger sum. The plus of choosing to finance is that you will be able to tap into our new and pre-owned models, which gives you more of a selection. If this sounds like the right plan for you, you can get the ball rolling today when you fill out our online Finance Application so we can get in touch with our local lenders. 

Inventory

Now that you know the details of buying and leasing, you can get started on finding the appropriate vehicle for your daily excursions. Since both avenues let you access our New Vehicles, we will direct you toward the latest and greatest models that we have in stock! If you are interested in a spacious ride that provides multimedia features for the kids and plenty of cargo volume, you would be remiss if you didn’t consider the Toyota 4Runner or Highlander. On the other hand, if you are keener on vehicles that provide ultimate fuel efficiency, then you can’t go wrong with the Camry or Corolla Hybrid!

We hope we have filled you in with all of the details of whether to buy vs lease near Canton, MI. Stop by Dunning Toyota today to speak with our Finance Department at 3745 Jackson Road in Ann Arbor, MI!

I’ve bought many cars over the past 30 years but Dunning has earned my business for life. Just purchased a used Nissan Sentra “AS IS” last month, a nice car, and last week the transmission totally went out. I was not happy! They got me in the same day and allowed me to trade it in for another vehicle without taking a hit at all. It had no warranty. Unheard of!!! As if that wasn’t good enough, my sales person Ava and the finance manager Tom got it all done in less than an hour. One minute I was up the creek without a paddle and an hour later they had me in a vehicle that I love even more. I would leave 5 stars for Ava’s professionalism alone but the fact they ate the cost of a failed transmission to keep my business has made me a Dunning customer for the rest of my life. Just no words to express my thanks!

Joel Dunning, my sales person, was honest, frank, knowledgeable, and very helpful. He took his time to carefully answer all my questions and was never pushy or impatient. He is such a nice guy that I wouldn't mind hanging out with him socially. Normally, I don't like the stress of car-shopping, but Joel actually made it fun. Also, kudos to Zack Johnson for taking the time to explain the myriad of controls and electronic devices. I observed the fun interactions with other sales people and saw how they seemed to like working with each other. I looked at other dealerships, but I ultimately came back to Dunning, because I felt so comfortable.

Today we picked up our first new car in nearly 10 years from Dunning Toyota in Ann Arbor! We were really uncertain about how difficult buying a new car would be. (though we had done our research and knew we wanted a Toyota hybrid.) Our sales person Dusty Orick was really terrific! He made everything understandable, answered all our questions patiently, and went out of his way to solve what could have been a problem for us. Today he explained the car's functions, carefully and in detail so I could drive it home without feeling too nervous! Whatever he promised, Dusty carried through on in a timely manner. We are really pleased. I am retired now, but was in retail sales for 16 years, Dusty is a great person to work with, a real "straight shooter" as we liked to say years ago.

Tony was great. I told him what I was looking for and how much I was willing to spend, he worked with me and found me a great suv. He explained the options that would better suit my needs and made sure I was getting a great deal. I didn't feel pressured, I was very comfortable with him during the whole process and thought he was a very honest salesperson. I love my rav4 and would recommend Tony to anyone who is looking to buy or lease a Toyota.

Overall, my experience with Dunning Toyota was positive. Kyle Taylor was my salesman, promptly contracted me when a used car in my price range came into stock (even before it appeared online). He also came in on his day off to help me. There was an miscommunication with financing that upset me, but Dunning was able to fix the issue after I brought it to their attention which I respect.

I was looking for "the most comfortable/best SUV" for us. The moment I sat in the Highlander, I knew it was the right choice. Tony Khalil worked with me from the beginning, communicating all the wants and needs I had expressed. He even had to go dig the Highlander out of the 9" of snow that we got so early in November to get the one I was interested in! We had health issues going on through the process and Tony had some issues too, and he never skipped a beat!! Probably the best experience buying a new car that we've ever had. Also, Zack, who delivered the vehicle, did a terrific job instructing me on the operations of the car and was very helpful! And Eugene Ilin, in finance, was very kind, honest and efficient.

Took my wife’s van in for a routine oil change and tire rotation. I didn’t have an appointment and I came when it was quite busy, but I still managed to get out in just over an hour and a half which fit into my other errands perfectly. Not too bad. George was a great service advisor.

We loved working with Jeff Root for our trade-in and used car purchase. He was incredibly friendly and really advocated for us to get the best deal possible on our trade AND purchase. I'm very weary of salespeople in general but he made the whole experience enjoyable, stress-free and no BS. Same with Tom Mallon who bent over backwards to set us up with the best financing rates and extended warranty package. Jeff even brought out a big red bow to put on the hood of our new car so I could take a cute photo (the photo of me, Jeff, our Audi and the big red bow is posted in the photos). Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone in the market for new or used vehicles!

I called ahead before arriving at the dealership and asked if the vehicle could be taken to the shop for all points inspection before arriving. My salesman( Joel ) had it done before I arrived with no problems. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The paper was already done and the wait time was very short. Very good experience.

Great car shopping experience. Joel was incredibly friendly and helpful. We were trying different models to see which ones we like the best, and tried a Corolla, a Camry, and a Rav4. All three models brought different things to the table, and in the end we like the Rav4 the best, closely followed by the Camry, but really the Corolla was no slouch either. Now just waiting for the right trim level Rav4 to come in our budget.
