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!

Upon my arrival I was greeted right away by Service Consultant Kyle Gardner. Was scheduled for oil change and tire rotation. I also requested service to check out my phone command on the console. Time took a little longer than expected due to issue with phone command. Service contacted Honda and was able to fix issue.

Amanda researched all my concerns and found them all covered under my extended warranty that I forgot I had, saving me a lot of money. Also, if not for the service manager Cheryl driving with me and listening to my car and asking me about my warranty, I wouldn’t have even thought to ask if anything was covered. Great customer service.

A couple weeks after the warranty expired, service department was able to pinpoint the problem. Allison went to work for us and arranged for a large portion of the bill to be covered under "Customer Goodwill." She did all this in a professional manner with a smile on her face.

Love having my vehicles serviced by Honda professionals! From your call to schedule your appointment, to the time you drive away, your experience is a great one. Scheduling appointments are simple and quick. They always do their best to get you in as soon as possible, and they're willing to work around your schedule. Dropping the car off is also easy. You can either come back when you're called, or wait in the comfortable waiting area. Your car is serviced quickly, fairly priced, and thoroughly. You will be fully informed about the status of your vehicle's health and needs. All service staff know there stuff! I'll only have my vehicles serviced at Honda. Not only do they instill confidence in me that they'll keep my vehicle running flawlessly, but the service experience is made easy, relaxing, and enjoyable!

Six years ago we purchased our 1st Honda CR-V from Southeastern Honda. The sales experience then was a really good one, and the vehicle performed well and the service was timely, courteous and always kept the CR-V running well. So of course we would come back to Southeastern when we were looking for our next vehicle. There are a lot of attractive mid-size SUV's around and we were thinking about looking into them too. However, we happened to approach salesperson Greg Trampus and asked for his assistance. He brought us to a new 2019 CR-V and patiently walked us through all the features and upgrades on the new CR-V. After Greg's low key and very thorough presentation we knew that we wanted to look no further. This was the vehicle for us. Our sales experience again was friendly, courteous, thorough and low key. It sold us.

How $39.95 becomes $48.32 is a mystery. It does you no good to have your personnel recite a bold face lie does not make customers happy. But the ultimate crime is not reflecting the detail of how the price change takes place. Why do so many people think that pulling slight of hands is a decent method of doing business. I am a successful business man, actually very successful and all I ever did was tell the plain truth and it worked great for me. Try it, and you will see your success increase.
