Finance VS Leasing: Which is better?

What are your goals? We all have different priorities—in cars, life, and finances. When deciding on leasing vs. financing, what's right for one person can be totally wrong for another.

Generally, leasing offers lower monthly payments than financing as well as the benefit of owning a new car every two or three years. However, financing offers its own set of advantages.

Luckily, we have a team of finance experts who are happy to help you find the best option for you. Call 780-777-7777 or any Go Auto dealership to book a free consultation.

Finance VS Leasing: Cost Comparison

For the same car, same price, same term, and same down payment, monthly lease payments will always be 30%-60% lower than loan payments. This is still true even when compared to 0% or low-interest loans.


The medium-term cost of leasing is about the same as the cost of financing, assuming the buyer sells or trades his or her vehicle at loan-end and the leaser returns his or her vehicle at lease-end.

Some comparisons sometimes show that financing can cost a little less than leasing due to fewer fees, lower total finance costs, and the assumption that a purchased vehicle will return full market value if it is sold or traded at the end of the loan. However, when the benefits of wisely investing monthly lease savings are considered, the net cost of leasing can be less than financing.


The long-term cost of leasing is always more than the cost of financing, assuming the buyer keeps his vehicle after loan-end. If a buyer keeps his car after the loan has been paid off, and drives it for many more years, the cost is spread over a longer term. That means the cost of buying one car and driving it for ten years is less expensive than leasing or buying four or five different cars over the same period.

If long-term financial cost savings were the most important objective in acquiring a new car, it would always be best to buy the car and drive it for as long as it survives, or until the cost of maintenance and repairs begins to exceed the cost of replacing it. However, many automotive consumers have other more immediate objectives that are more important than long-term cost savings.

Frequently Asked Questions

You should bring:

  1. A valid government-issued driver’s license
  2. Your last paystub
  3. A void cheque

Depending on the specifics of your purchase, you may be required to bring additional information. For a complete list of what you’ll need to buy or trade in a vehicle with Go Auto, call the dealership ahead of time and speak with a Sales Consultant.

Four main factors determine whether you get approved for a car loan:

  • The Vehicle You’re Buying: cost, age, and mileage
  • Customer Information: employment history, residence, and income
  • Customer Credit History: your credit score, debts, past payment history, etc.
  • Down Payment: includes cash down payment and trade-in equity

For the best chance of approval, and the lowest monthly payment possible, try to select a vehicle that fits your budget. Also, provide as large of a down payment as you can.

Once you’re approved for a car loan, three factors will affect your monthly payment (in order of importance):

  1. Amount financed
  2. Term or length of contract
  3. Annual Percentage Rate (APR)

We offer competitive rates from a variety of finance companies to fit nearly every budget and credit profile. You can learn more about your personal finance options at any Go Auto dealership.

The rule of thumb from most financial institutions is to spend no more than 15% of your gross monthly income on your car payment.

For example, if you make $2,000 a month you should spend no more than $300 on your car payment.

Your credit score helps financial institutions predict the risk associated with your purchase of a car, house, credit card, etc. Essentially, it's meant to forecast how (and if) you will pay your bills.

The higher your credit score, the greater your chance of receiving a better financing offer from Go Auto.

Your credit score is a number that ranges from about 350 to 850. In general, the higher the number, more likely you are to get approved for a car loan. The systems that generate your credit score look at your credit report and take several factors into account, including:

  • The timeliness of your payments, including late payments
  • The amount and type of debt you have
  • The number and age of your credit accounts
  • Inquiries created by applying for credit
  • Public records such as liens and judgments

Do you prefer to drive a new vehicle very few years that will always be under warranty? That's one advantage of leasing. Do you prefer to build up equity and drive one car for a long time? Then consider financing.

There are all sorts of factors to consider when choosing between financing and leasing. Luckily, we have a team of finance experts who are Happy to Help you find the best option for you. Call 780-777-7777 or any Go Auto dealership to schedule a free consultation.

Of course. Many Go Auto customers qualify for financing on their first vehicle purchase.

If a normal credit determination cannot be made based on your current credit history, you may still qualify for other programs, like those for recent college graduates.

Stipulations for college students vary by finance company. Check with a finance professional at any of our Go Auto dealerships for more information.
