Leasing New vs. Buying Certified Pre-Owned

Seattle drivers looking to get a great car at an affordable price have a lot of options available to them. By leasing a new vehicle or buying a Certified Pre-Owned Honda, you can get a high-quality vehicle for less than you’d spend financing a brand-new Honda. So which path will best suit you? We’ve brought you the scoop on both to help you decide.

Leasing a New Vehicle

Leasing differs from financing in that, instead of paying off a loan with the goal of owning the car at the end, you instead get a model for a specific time (usually three years) and simply pay for its depreciation in value over that period. This often results in a much lower monthly payment, making it easy to afford a brand-new vehicle. And at the end of your lease, you can turn it in and lease a new model without the hassle of trading in.

Buying Certified Pre-Owned

If you’d rather own your vehicle, buying a Certified Pre-Owned Honda is a great way to save money without sacrificing quality. In order to qualify as Certified Pre-Owned, a vehicle must:

  • Be Less Than Six Years Old
  • Have Fewer Than 80,000 Miles
  • Pass a 182-Point Certification
