Buy vs Lease in Palm Bay, FL

Buy vs Lease in Palm Bay, FL

Visit Southeastern Honda!

Whether you are a new car buyer or a veteran in the automotive industry, it can still be a difficult choice deciding whether to buy or lease your car. If you’re confused about your options, we at Southeastern Honda are here to break down each option and explain their benefits. If you have any further questions, we invite you to use our online contact form to get in touch with our automotive experts, or pay us a visit today!

Buying

If you opt to buy your vehicle, you have two options. You can either pay the entire sticker price outright, or you can go down the much more commonly traveled path of financing. When you finance, you provide a down payment and take out a loan for the remaining amount. Then, you pay back that amount in monthly installments for several years afterwards. Once you finish up with your monthly payments, you are officially the owner of your vehicle! At that point, it is up to you to decide what you want to do with your car - keep it payment-free, pass it on to a family member, trade it in for a newer model, or sell it and recoup your investment. This route is slightly more expensive, but yields a reward long-term!

Leasing

Leasing is quite different from buying. This method of taking home a vehicle is more like borrowing. Therefore, the only monthly installments you have to pay are borrowing fees for taking home the vehicle, aka the depreciation of the vehicle while it’s in your care. Our finance team will work with you to craft a personalized contract based on your annual mileage that will last anywhere from two to four years based on your needs. After that period of time, you can return the car to us and walk away, upgrade to a newer model on our lot, or if you really fell in love with your model, you can pay the remaining amount towards it and purchase it! When you opt to lease, you have a flexible contract and low monthly payments with no long-term commitment!

Inventory

Once you decide which path to take, it’s time to take a look at our inventory. Instead of coming to our location and surveying row upon row of eligible options, sort through our stock first on our website. You can navigate to either the New or Pre-Owned dropdowns on our website to access our online inventory. Once you can view the full listing, use the filters on the left side of the screen to sort through choices by fuel economy, year, body style, and more. As you narrow down your choices, feel free to click on a few profiles of cars that interest you to see their full specs. From these profiles, you can even see a prospective ePrice or Lease Payment for each vehicle to help make your decision of which path you want to take! Then, we invite you to come into our dealership in person to confirm that your ride is the one for you.

We hope that we have made your decision whether to buy vs lease in Palm Bay, FL, a little easier. Visit Southeastern Honda’s location today to find your ideal model and secure a competitive contract!

We met with Bob Dolan as recommended by George Montfort (now retired). Our lease on our 2017 Honda Civic was coming to an end and Bob was extremely helpful in helping us select our new lease vehicle. The entire visit took only 3 hours and included free lunch :) We are very happy with Southeastern Honda's service and timeliness and would highly recommend the dealership to friends and family. Bob provided excellent customer service! Our finance person was also very efficient and the process was painless. Thank you Bob!!

The HRV rear view camera has a flawed design. We also have a CRV and the rear camera on thst vehicle has much broader complete view. The HRV rear camera view appears as if you are looking out of a fishbowl. You can see the ends of the license plat rather than are area behind you.

Not always my favorite thing to do, car buying at Southeast Honda was relatively stress free. Having communicated Online with Angel Ortiz to obtain a ‘best price’ on the vehicle before visiting took that negotiation out of the equation, leaving only the question of a trade-in price. After a needless and annoying back and forth they matched a written quote I had obtained elsewhere. Had to navigate through the confusing and again annoying add-ons routine during the financing process before leaving, but all in all a pretty quick and pleasant experience.

I have always taken our Hondas (3 so far, since 2006) to Southeastern. The service people are always very efficient, nice and helpful. No pressure, good advice. Normally, it's an annual visit, usually when it's time for an oil change/tire rotations/etc. This time, however, it started out to be a just that but ended up doing a lot more recommended maintenance, which cost a lot more...like maybe 3X more than originally anticipated! But we're glad we did it all...we hadn't had to experience many high maintenance costs before, so maybe it was just time. We trust Southeastern Honda, so all is good!

Heading out to the dealership, I'm comfortable knowing I can wait for my car. The dealership is within 15 minutes of my home. The waiting room is very clean and well furnished. It took about an hour and a half for the mechanics to go over every checkpoint in my car as well as the oil change and replacing two filters. I like the way their paperwork explains why it is so important to maintain all parts of the car. I trust Honda with my Civic

Leased a 2020 Accord. First thousand miles was terrible because car was always drifting left. Brought it in for a wheel alignment costing $95. Great job aligning. A pleasure to drive now. However,not sure about having to pay for alignment on new car with an indigenous misalignment condition. For the past 9 or 10 years everyone at Southeastern has been just tremendous to my family and I. So $95 is a small fee for magnanimous positive relationship. Thanks.

Donna was very patient during our online conversations! She answered every question and was extremely helpful, even though we took several weeks to make our purchase. We bought an used Honda and Ken Hannam was the salesman that we worked with, when we went to the dealership. He was a pleasure to work with. He did not harass us like some sales people will do. When we decided on the car, he stayed with us through the entire process and made sure that the car was clean and ready to go. He was very knowledgeable about the car, which we really appreciated.
