Buy vs Lease near Louisville, KY

As Kentucky’s oldest Ford dealership, our customers know they can come to us for help with any of their automotive-related questions, including advice on the right finance plan for their budget. If you’ve been on the fence about buying vs. leasing, come to chat with us here at Conway-Heaton!

Should I Buy or Lease?

At the end of the day, both options provide a long list of benefits and will ultimately allow you to achieve your goal of getting behind the wheel of a great vehicle. However, buying and leasing do have some distinguishing characteristics that you may want to keep in mind as you plan your strategy. We always recommend starting with your monthly budget. Knowing roughly how much you can afford to put towards your vehicle payment plan is a great start, along with having an idea of any savings you can put towards the down payment. Next, take a moment to think about the future – where do you see yourself in three or five years? Once you have those questions answered, you’re ready to start.

Finance Basics

Financing your purchasing simply means that you’ll be breaking the total cost into monthly segments. The length of the finance contract could last anywhere from five to eight years, depending on how much you have to pay off and how much you can pay each month. This is where that estimated monthly budget and down payment amount come into play. If you are able to cover a decent portion of the cost at signing, you’ll have a higher chance of low monthly payments and then the ability to drive the vehicle even after it has been paid off. You could also choose to pass it down to a family member. Another good thing to note is that financing can be applied to both new and used vehicles.

Leasing Basics

With leasing, we’ll start with that last question about your future goals. If you aren’t sure, perhaps getting into a long-term payment is a little concerning for you. One major difference with a lease plan is that they are short – typically less than three years. This gives you the flexibility to change your vehicle or even turn in the keys and head your own way as your lifestyle changes. Although you won’t be working to own the vehicle, you could decide to start financing it once the lease is up. This is also a great opportunity if you don’t have a large sum saved up to provide as a down payment. Many customers like leasing because it allows them to drive a new vehicle every few years, taking advantage of the latest features.

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!!

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.
