Buy vs Lease near Ypsilanti, MI

Buy vs Lease near Ypsilanti, MI

The act of finding the right car to drive can be a ton of work in itself. Having to choose between leasing and financing can easily start to feel like too much, especially if you’re new to the process. There’s so much to learn about each option and you quickly think that you're in over your head. Our team at Dunning Toyota would like to prevent this by helping you to choose which option would be best for you. Feel free to read on and learn a bit more, or to contact us for a one-on-one consultation with one of our expert finance specialists!

Finance

We’ll begin with financing—the most common way people choose to acquire their vehicles. This option involves taking the total sticker price of the model you want and breaking it down into monthly payments. You’ll pay a bit off each month for a number of years before finally permanently owning it. This is perfect if you actually want to keep a vehicle for a long time and are willing to pay the full sticker price in order to have what you want. Financing treats vehicles as investments, so years down the line you could sell your model and even make a profit off of it. If you think you’d like to begin financing, you can Get Pre-Qualified on our website.

Leasing

Leasing, on the other hand, is for those who don’t want to permanently own a particular ride. You never will own the model you lease, but instead enjoy far less expensive monthly payments. When you choose to lease, you’ll decide on a duration to keep the vehicle you want as well as how many miles you’ll drive it each year. Once you’ve decided this, you’ll have to make monthly payments each and every month that are based upon its estimated depreciation, so you know that you’ll be paying less than if you chose to finance. Once your contract expires, rather than owning your model, you’ll be able to return it to the dealership and upgrade to a newer, more current set of wheels.

Inventory

Once you’ve decided whether you’d like to buy or lease, you can relax and start to seriously look for the vehicle that’s perfect for you. We make this simple with the help of our superb search functionality on our website. Whether you’re looking for a pre-owned or new model, you’ll quickly find yourself on a results page with a large number of filters on the left-hand side of the screen. With these, you can easily input all of your specifications, so that you’ll only see results that have all the features you want. You could find the perfect option for you in a matter of minutes!

We hope that we’ve been able to help you decide whether to buy vs lease near Ypsilanti, MI. If you feel you’re making steps in the right direction, then we’d encourage you to visit Dunning Toyota soon during our convenient business hours. We’re open six days a week, so we hope to always have a moment to see you.

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.
