At Johnson Motors of St. Croix Falls, we want to help you make the most informative when you make your vehicle purchase.

ADVANTAGES OF LEASING: 
• Lower monthly payments with a low - or no - down payment.  
• You can drive a better car for less money.
• Lower repair costs because you are always under the vehicle's included factory warranty.
• You can more easily transition to a new car every two or three years.
• There are no trade-in hassles at the end of the lease.
• You pay less sales tax.

DISADVANTAGES OF LEASING
• You don't own the car at the end of the lease (although there is always the option to buy).
• Your mileage is typically limited to 10,000, 12,000, or 15,000 miles a year (you can purchase extra).
• Lease contracts can be confusing and filled with unfamiliar terminology.
• In the long run, leasing is more expensive than buying a car and keeping it for years. (if you buy the lease out at the end)
• Excessive wear-and-tear charges can be a nasty surprise at the end of the lease.
• It's costly to terminate a lease early if your driving needs change.

ADVANTAGES OF CAR BUYING
• You can modify your car as you please.
• Car buying is more economical over the long term.
• You can drive as much as you like. There's no excess mileage penalty.
• You have more flexibility since you can sell the car whenever you want.

DISADVANTAGES OF CAR BUYING
• It requires a higher down payment to avoid being "upside down" in the loan, meaning you owe more than the car is worth.
• Monthly payments are higher than lease payments.
• Once the warranty expires, you're responsible for repair costs.
• You face possible trade-in or selling hassles when you decide to get your next car.
• More of your ready cash is tied up in a car, which depreciates in value.
