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!

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!!

Sales person Kristen Littrell is awesome. She didn't try pressuring me to buy a vehicle "off the lot". She located the vehicle/model & options that I wanted, at the right price. She made sure I received all available incentives. She is all about Customer Satisfaction!

The staff was very personable and professional throughout the entire process. They offer an excellent product at a fair price while continuing to stand behind their vehicles once they have been driven off of the lot. I will continue to buy my vehicles at Conway-Heaton and look forward to many years of business in the future.

Down to earth family type environment. The sales staff was very pleasant to work with, and not pushy. There was a small problem with the truck I bought that was corrected by a service bulletin, and the manager allowed me to use a loaner while the work was being done. If you're in the market for a vehicle, I highly recommend Conway-Heaton in Bardstown, KY.

The sales staff at Conway Heaton were very eager to earn my business. They went above and beyond to help me get the truck that I wanted which was not an easy task. They looked high and low, and in the end I am very happy with my Ford 350. I also was extremely thankful to the finance department who made this affordable and a great deal. The people at Conway Heaton Ford made me feel as if I were the most important customer there. I appreciate all their efforts. Definitely glad I went into their dealership.

Sometimes you take for granted - great service. You only truly value service when you're in a pinch and you need it. I couldn't speak more highly of Conway Heaton, and their service department. I recently moved to the area and have found an honest, convenient and high quality spot to service my vehicle.
