Buying vs Leasing In St Charles IL



Are you on the hunt for a good deal on a new Chevy car, truck, or SUV? Has a specific model on our lot in St. Charles, IL caught your eye? In either case, you will eventually need to sit down with the team in our auto finance center to discuss your options. Our Chevy dealership in St. Charles, IL offers both financing specials and leasing specials to new vehicle shoppers.

Financing and leasing both offer unique benefits to many different types of drivers. This page will help our customers determine which is the right choice for their budget, lifestyle, and driving habits.


How It Works

Though both options allow St. Charles, IL area drivers to obtain an affordable and reliable car, truck, or SUV, there are several important differences that anyone considering a new Chevy model should know, which are detailed in the table below.




Either the price in cash, or a down payment, taxes, and any fees including registration.

Up-Front Costs

Typically the first month’s payment, a security deposit, taxes, and any fees including registration. However, this may vary depending on the model, the dealership, and incentives.

Based on the total price of the vehicle, taxes, and fees, plus interest.

Monthly Payments

Based on the total depreciation of the vehicle throughout the lease term, taxes, and fees, plus interest.

At the end of the loan term, you will own the car, and you may sell or trade-in the vehicle at any time before or after. Be aware the vehicle will suffer depreciation.

End of Term

At the end of the lease you will have the option to purchase the car, or lease or purchase a different car. Leasing does not build equity.

Vehicles can be driven and customized however the owner chooses.


Leases include mileage limits and generally prohibit modifications.

Care and maintenance is performed at the owner’s discretion, but excessive wear and tear could lower trade-in or resale value.

Wear and Tear

Leased vehicles typically fall under warranty for major repairs, but lessees may face extra charges for exceeding what is considered normal wear and tear.
