Some things don’t come with a map and compass. Well, your new Jeep® Cherokee can be outfitted with a navigation system, but first you’ll have to figure out how you’ll pay for it. Lucky for you, you won’t need a team of Sherpas to find the right financing options. When the time comes to decide between leasing and buying, the team at Executive Dodge Jeep will guide you in the right direction. 

Should I Lease?

This decision doesn’t come down to a coin toss, but it’s not ridiculously complicated either. Leasing is great if you don’t have (or would prefer not to leave) a significant down payment but you’d like to keep your monthly payments low. It’s also a good option for those who like to change cars often, or who don’t spend a lot of time behind the wheel.

It’s not for everyone. If you’ve got lousy credit, you’ll have a hard time qualifying for good lease terms. If you do a lot of driving, whether out of necessity or just for the love of it, you may go over your mileage allotment (which costs money). If you use your Jeep Wrangler off-road, or your new Dodge Durango on the job site, you’ll be looking at wear and tear penalties (which also cost money).

My Lease is Up. What Next?

Your lease will end in a few years’ time, and we’re here to help when it does. We suggest giving yourself plenty of time — 90 days is best, 60 would be the bare minimum — to tie up loose ends.

Those include your end-of-lease inspection, any needed repairs, and sufficient time to decide what you’ll choose as your next vehicle. We’ll take time to explain the incentives available to you if you’re leasing or buying another vehicle from the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM brands.
