Advantages Compared to Leasing  Sep 26th, 2012 
With an auto loan, each monthly payment you make goes toward eventually owning the vehicle yourself. When the loan is paid off, you own a piece of property. In a lease agreement, you rent a car for a specific time. At the end of your lease contract, you have the option to buy the vehicle or return it to the dealer. Auto loans do not limit the amount of miles you can drive the car before incurring costly over-mileage charges, as is the case with a lease. Another consideration is auto insurance. If you finance through a loan, the amount an insurance company will pay for damage depends on the market value of the vehicle. When a leased vehicle is damaged, the dealer's repair costs often are greater than the insurance company will pay, leaving you responsible to cover the difference.
