What is the Difference Between Buying and Leasing?

Once you find your preferred Nissan driving option, you have to decide whether you would like to buy it for its full price or lease it. You probably have taken one of these paths before, which is why we at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg are here to fill you in with all of the pluses of both options. This way, if you are ready to switch things up, you can make a decision that will make sense for your budget and driving needs. Stop by our Finance Department today!

Inventory

The first step in the automotive purchasing process is to find a vehicle that sparks your interest. We make this easier than most dealerships, because we showcase our entire stock online right here on our website! Before you start searching, keep in mind that you cannot lease a pre-owned vehicle, so if that is what you are interested in, you can go straight to the buying portion of this process. Otherwise, since both paths put our incredible new driving options at your disposal, that is where we will be directing our attention to today! Just double-click the New Nissans tab at the top of your screen, and you will be sent to a page filled with every model we have in stock. For a family-size vehicle, we suggest diving into the cabin of the Nissan Pathfinder or Armada. For fantastic fuel ratings, you can’t go wrong with the Sentra or Altima!

Buying

If you are the type of person that wants to see a return on your invested capital, then you are probably most keen on buying your vehicle for its full price. This way, you can pay off the entire contract in a period of four to seven years and attain full ownership of your prospective set of wheels. You won’t have to worry about having a contract that is hard to manage, because we will help you split up the total cost into manageable increments that you can chip away at slowly. Then, when you do decide to upgrade, you can always just use the model toward a trade-in or even hand it down to your teenager when they start driving. If this sounds perfect for you, you can find out how your potential vehicle will fit into your budget by crunching some numbers in our online Payment Calculator. Then, you can fill out our Finance Application!

How Do I Lease a Vehicle?

We at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg understand that people can grow tired of their driving option, especially with the consistent automotive advancements made each year. If you don’t want to be left behind with the latest technology, you can choose leasing as a fantastic alternative to buying. This option allows you to basically borrow your ride from us for a period of time that generally ranges anywhere from two to four years. Then, when your contract is up, you can simply upgrade to one of the newer driving options on our showroom floor. The benefit of taking this avenue is that you will have a minimal down payment if any, and a monthly rate that is much lower than financing.

You no longer have to ask yourself, “What is the difference between buying and leasing?” Now that you know, you can swing by Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg today!

We purchased a new 2019 Nissan Pathfinder platinum model on 11 Nov 19. Our sales representative was Esma Espinoza and she was a pleasure to work with. Esma was extremely helpful throughout the process and was never pushy or overbearing like some sales reps. If you are shopping for a new Nissan in the Fredericksburg are I highly recommend you work Esma.

My husband and I went to Pohanka under a very stressful situation on 10/20/19 and needed a car that day. Having very little credit and I already had a car loan myself we knew it would be very had to get a loan. Also didn’t have much to put down on a vehicle we have 3 young children but my husbands transmission went out on his 2015 Nissan Sentra and the Warranties are all gone. We were met by a sales associate named Bert Carlson. He was very helpful, it did take a little bit to find the best car to fit our needs and tight budget but the Pohanka team worked very hard to get my husband into a car so he would no miss any time from work and we could not be more pleased with this dealership and the services they have provided!! Thank you Bert and your awesome Pohanka team!!

We did Save The Cure cause/event yesterday (10-21-19), after calling to speak with Ms. Juliana Coleman and requesting come in earlier than originally booked our appointment time at Pohanka, we got there at 11:30 AM and checked in at the receptionist desk and waited for her to come back in with working her first clients. We looked at both options either sell or trade. We test drove the new Nissan Maxima SV, we fell in love with it immediately. Juliana was very caring, friendly, fun, humble, knowledgeable, and met our expectations of what we were looking for yesterday. On behalf of my husband and I we would like to thank Juliana Coleman and her team at Pohanka Nissan/Hyundai for helping us seal the deal with the help from Billy Adams in bringing home our new Maxima to the family!! Great team and customer service! Thank you 🙌 💪👌

My wife and I were immediately met by Ian and we explained to him what we were looking for and he took us to the car we had in mind. He answered all our questions and was a pleasure to work with. Kingsley, the manager, was also a pleasure to work with and was able to get us where we needed to be in order to make the sale. Matt, the finance manager, was also a pleasure to work with and made the whole process a painless experience. Our new Maxima was delivered to us in impeccable condition inside and out and we drove off the lot that night enjoying our new car. Thank you all for making our purchase a little easier.

I took my 2018 Maxima for oil change and tire rotation. Everything went fine but as I was expecting from my previous visit Whoever drives the vehicle back from the shop to the costumer always leaves oil stain on my leather seat. Small but the dealer should put something on the seats so this doesn’t happen again. Don’t know if this review is gonna do anything cause I left a previous review complaining about the same problem and nothing has changed.

My husband and I are repeat purchasers. Matt the finance manager, always take extremely good care of us. He’s always warm, personable and fast. This time is no different💕 Although he’s not a Green Bay Packers fan, he’s still a amazing guy. Typically, you are in a dealership forever. Matt and this team listens attentively to your needs and works a deal based on that. We highly recommend if you are shopping for a vehicle, to come to Pohanka Nissan in Fredericksburg.

Pohanka Nissan came through for me! I live an hour away but I had a HORRIBLE experience at another Nissan dealership and came here and met with Roman! He was upfront with me by letting me know that what I wanted was most likely hard but gave me hope that it wasn’t impossible. He was patient with me and my “demands” and helped me into the car I’ve wanted without having to sacrifice hardly anything! Finance made my dream a REALITY, I’m so thankful to the entire Pohanka team even Timmy! I can’t wait to send more people !

Outstanding experience. Very professional staff took care of me quickly, effortlessly, and with a great deal of courtesy. From the sales staff of Keyahna and Bert, to the Finance Director Matt, to the Sales Manager Tom Pohanka, Jr., they did a great job getting me into the door, showing me a great car, and getting me a great deal. I have had nothing but the best experience with Nissan, and Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg and their staff helped me drive off in an outstanding brand new Platinum Maxima with extended warranty in really no time at all. Thanks Tim, Bert, Matt, and Keyahna for the extra effort!
