Car Leasing - Don't Be a Payment Buyer
Many automotive consumers who decide to lease do so only because the payments are more affordable than purchase loan payments. In fact, dealers often encourage the comparison of leasing versus buying on this basis.
Consumers who fall into this potential trap are known as "payment buyers." Whether they are buying or leasing, they are only interested in monthly payment amounts, without regard to selling price, interest rate, trade-in value, residual values, or any other factors that determine overall cost.
Dealers love payment buyers.
Don't be a payment buyer.
What's the Problem?
Unless you do your homework beforehand, any monthly payment amount that a dealer may offer you will be impossible to evaluate in any real sense. You won't know if it's a good deal or not. You'll only know how one payment figure compares to others that you've been offered. It's possible that all your offers are bad deals, even the lowest offer.
More knowledgeable customers who visit the same dealer will almost always pay less than you. The dealer will take advantage of your lack of knowledge and convince you to pay more than you should — and then congratulate you for getting such a great deal.
Leasing is particularly problematic for payment buyers because there are a larger number of factors that make up the monthly payment. It's simply impossible to judge the value of a car leasing deal when you only have payment amount to work with....
