Buying a car seems like a stressful ordeal. With so many things to consider, it seems like a long process, too. Here is a checklist of factors to consider to make the process as smooth as possible.
A couple years ago, I was in the process of getting a new car. At the time, I was unsure whether I wanted to buy or lease a car. I ended up leasing, with the rationale that I’d rather drive a new car every couple years than be stuck with the same one for an extended period of time.
Throughout my eight years of driving, I’ve had three different vehicles. Two were leases while the other was a truck my dad paid off and gave to me. In my experience, I think leasing is the best option.
