Buy vs Lease in Bardstown, KY

We're Always Here to Help!

Are you currently on the fence when it comes to buying or leasing your next car, truck, or SUV? If so, have no fear! The friendly experts at Conway-Heaton are here to assist with your decision by presenting both sides of the story and explaining what makes them advantageous depending on your budget and goals. Our Finance Department will work closely with you to craft a plan that’s ideal, so put us to the test today!

What Is a Lease?

Since you’re most likely already familiar with the process of buying a car, we’d like to start by explaining what a lease is. Akin to borrowing, leasing grants you temporary possession of a brand-new model with a limit on the amount of mileage you can accumulate. Although you have to return the vehicle to us when your contract ends in about three years, the major upside is that your monthly payments will be less than those of a typical car loan, since they’re based on the depreciated value of the vehicle. This type of agreement not only makes it easier to spring for the newest editions more frequently, but also means that you’ll always have a car payment.

Purchasing

If you’ve bought a car in the past, then you very likely financed this purchase. By breaking up the total sticker price and spreading out the payments over a period of four to seven years, you can gradually pay off the loan and gain complete ownership of your ride. Since you’ll be covering its entire retail value plus any interest that accumulates, you’ll end up paying more each month than with a lease. However, owning your vehicle means getting to drive it as much as you wish, being able to pass it down to your kids or utilize its trade-in potential, and not having to make payments once the loan has been fulfilled.

Choosing Your Plan

So, which option is best? The answer depends on your lifestyle! For example, if you can’t afford to spend too much or only do local driving for the most part, then a lease might be ideal. Additionally, by leasing, you won’t have to deal with too much vehicle maintenance, so this is another important factor to consider. On the other hand, if you have a long daily commute, travel frequently, or wish to view your vehicle as an investment, then buying it might be the better route. Thankfully, you won’t have to navigate either process alone, as our team will be with you every step of the way.

Conway-Heaton is ready to help you decide whether to buy vs lease in Bardstown, KY. We’re a dealer that’s big enough to serve you, but small enough to know you, so you can trust that you’ll be treated with attentive care and respect throughout the entire procedure. Plus, we’re open six days a week!

Great people, from my first experience with Ann Taylor from sales to John Giannone is finance. I couldn't have been happier with my experience. This purchase was made in a small town and you know pretty much everybody. However I don't think this factor made a bit of difference. They made my purchase simple, safe and enjoyable. Thanks very much Mark Z

This is my second vehicle from Conway-Heaton and I can say these folks are consistently hometown friendly and are knowledgeable about their products. My previous Ford Ranger performed beautifully and I have great expectations for my new Ford Focus. (This is my 7th Ford, so I have to admit I’m biased.) My salesperson, April, and the finance manager, John, were patient and helpful in what I always find to be a stressful process. I couldn’t ask for better. I have long recommended Conway-Heaton to my friends and they have earned my future recommendations.

The people I dealt with during the buying process was great. Very friendly with no pressure to buy. They even threw in a spray on bed liner at my request. I am just disappointed with the purchase itself. I bought a 2013 F-150 because of its low mileage and fetuses I wanted. The truck looked in great shape but once I brought it home I discovered numerous places of rust throughout the truck. Needless to say I have regrets on buying this particular truck due to the rust issues it has.

My husband and I purchased our Ford Explorer from Conway Heaton on December 21st. We had been shopping for months and Conway Heaton was by far the best place for us to purchase our new vehicle! Their prices and quality of their vehicles on their used inventory is excellent and the prices could not be beat any where else that we shopped! I would like to especially thank Ann Taylor for her excellent service. She is very knowledgeable about all the inventory and answered all our questions and then some! She made us feel very comfortable and made the buying process a easy and fun experience! She is so sweet and so nice! I also want to give the financial service guy a shout out. I think his name is John. I hope I remembered his name correctly. He was awesome ! He went above and beyond to get us the best deal and interest rate and we are very thankful to him, Ann and every one who helped us on our journey! I highly recommend Conway Heaton for anyone looking for honest and excellent service! My dad bought his first new truck from Conway Heaton in 1974. And I’m so proud that I got mine from the same dealer and I know he was looking down from heaven that day with a big smile when I got my new truck as well. His was blue and mine is too!! Sincerely, Martha Mcclanahan.

In a day when we use the word "Trust" flippantly and casually, I can honestly say that the service I receive fro Conway- Heaton is reliable, courteous and fairly priced in my several experiences with them for all of my Ford Vehicles overt he last 10 years. Steve Greenwell is the finest service manager I've dealt with over my lifetime and his assistant, Carl, has always been there fro us as well. Good outfit - trustworthy company - very fair and competitive in the market. John G

My wife had a car that was making her afraid to drive anywhere because we spent a lot (for us) of money in repairs in the last 5 months. Even employees at the Chevy dealership told us it was time to trade it in and get a new car. So we came into Conway-Heaton to see what they had. My wife didn’t want a used car and wanted to make sure she was the only person to own it. Chuck met us outside and right away was very friendly and greeted us warmly. He said that since we were just looking at that moment there was no rush to buy a car since we had one already. Chuck was VERY patient and understanding with my wife because she was nervous and afraid of staying in her Chevy but was also nervous of buying a new car. He even went as far as telling her that he was putting her packet aside on his desk and that he wouldn’t even sell her a car that night and that she was going to go think about it over night. The next day she was ready to proceed further with the process and I called Chuck and told him we would come in and he let us take another test drive. He helped us a lot and we are SUPER HAPPY with every step of the process and we were taken care of very well from us greeting Chuck until we were driving off the car lot. They even went as far as giving our daughter snacks the first night we went in (we didn’t have dinner yet) and even fed her pizza the next day as it was near lunch time. Chuck was AMAZING through every step. When it was time to do the paperwork John Giannone was every bit as warm and friendly as Chuck and helped us tremendously. He made it feel like we were visiting with a friend and not like a sales transaction. My wife and I a couple years ago said that we were Chevy people, but after our dealings with Chuck and John we will definitely be returning to purchase any future vehicles (my turn next). Even the lady at the reception desk right in front of the doors was great with keeping an eye on our daughter (who has autism) while we went outside to look at vehicles. Everyone truly takes pride in their job and makes you truly feel like family and not just another customer with dollar signs floating above their heads.

Impressed with the way our issue was handled...quick,concise and friendly. Appreciate being made to feel like a person...not just a number. They got us in because we were trying to leave on vacation and provided a ride home and back to you...a real service for us since we only have one vehicle. Thanks again for caring.

Stopped in for an oil change on my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It has 186,000 miles. Them to also check around under the engine as it has been leaking some oil. They checked it over good and gave me an estimate for fixing the problem and also found that a rear taillight was also not working. I didn?t have time that day for the additional service but said I could call back and set it up when convenient. Great folks to work with!!
