If you're like a lot of folks from Kirkwood to The Gateway City, chances are this question, or some version of it, has been on your mind a lot lately. After all, with the two-fold windfalls of your tax return and a government stimulus check coming in the near future, there's no better way to take advantage of that sudden influx of cash than by putting it toward your next set of wheels. But is buying or leasing your next new VW vehicle right for you? At Dean Team Volkswagen of Kirkland, we're happy to help you find the answer that's right for your budget.

You should lease a new VW in St. Louis if…

  • You like the option to drive a new car every few years: Most new VW vehicles offer lease terms from 24 to 48 months. So, if you're looking to lease a new VW Golf now, but feel you might want to upgrade to a VW Tiguan or VW Atlas as your family grows in the next few years, a new VW lease may just be perfect for you.
  • If you primarily drive locally: Most VW leases come with some restrictions on mileage, but if you primarily spend your time in and around St. Louis, you'll have more than enough to satisfy your daily driving needs.
  • You don't want to make a big down payment: Unlike buying a car outright or financing with a car loan, new VW leases typically don't require a sizeable down payment. Better still, in most cases leasing a new VW will afford you lower monthly payments than you'd see if you opted to finance a comparable vehicle at other St. Louis area dealerships.

You should buy a new VW in St. Louis if…

  • You want to own your car for years to come: VW leases are often shorter in term, while financing a car will afford you the opportunity to drive your car as much as you like for as long as you'd like.
  • You want the option to personalize your VW vehicle: With a new VW lease, you'll be restricted from modifying the vehicle significantly. However, when you finance a new VW, you'll be paying to own it outright, meaning you'll be free to customize it with accessories and parts as you see fit.
  • You want the option to sell your car in the future: At the end of your VW lease, you'll be obliged to turn your car in to the VW dealership. However, when you finance a new VW vehicle, not only can you drive it for as long as you want, but you'll also have the option to sell it and put the profits toward your next vehicle if you so choose.
