16) Is it better to Lease or Buy?

    If you enjoy driving a newer vehicle, like the dependability of having a vehicle 

    under warranty, and you drive an average amount of miles each year-leasing

    maybe something you would like. A Lease is a payment plan where you pay for

    the time you drive the vehicle then you turn it back in after that time is up, and 

    get another vehicle. Since you are paying for the usage of the vehicle for a

    specific time instead of paying for the entire vehicle it can be economical for

    certain consumers. For detailed questions call the Mullinax Sales Department.
