I know that some people only want to lease a car. Do you actually know what that means? Well, leasing a car is basically the same as renting an apartment. You never own it. You have to return it at some point in time. There are some trusted dealers that will let you have the option of leasing to buy. That’s not a really bad idea. I can only assume that when you are leasing to buy you can return it if you’re not happy with the car. I can definitely see the perks in leasing a car but I prefer buying. I actually prefer paying cash for a car but sometimes that is not possible.
I have a cousin who was stationed in the UK for some time. I believe it was at least 10 years. During that time, I remember him putting pictures on FaceBook of cars he was thinking about purchasing. Nice cars, at that. BMW’s, Audi’s, Lincoln’s. All of the nice, luxury type cars. He deserves the best because he did serve in the war of couple times. After posting many pictures, and a few opinions from family and friends, what he decided on was something I wouldn’t have guessed. I would have guessed a brand new Lincoln Navigator, but he bought a new Ford Taurus. It is absolutely gorgeous. He told me that he was shopping around when someone told him to check out a website that helped him out tremendously. TrustedDealers.co.uk was the site that gave him that extra confidence in what type of car to buy. He was thinking about leasing but decided that buying the car was the better option for him.
He is now retired with a purple heart from the military and he is living back in the US. He still have that car he purchased in the UK . He calls it his “baby”
