Buying a Kia

For minimal limitations with your next vehicle, then ownership of your car with an auto loan might be the right route for you. When you put more money down upfront and pay slightly more per month, you're working towards complete freedom with your vehicle, whether that means long road trips without mileage restrictions or customization to your heart's desire. Although you're responsible for auto service and maintenance, you also get to hold onto your beloved car until you're ready to trade-in or sell it yourself. Ready to move forward with an auto loan? Then apply for credit pre-approval today, and the financing experts at Dulles Kia will happily help achieve your dreams.

Leasing a Kia

If you're a fan of driving the latest vehicles off the lot for a shorter period of time, then a car lease may be more flexible and suited to your lifestyle. Auto leases make for an easy start-to-finish with your automotive experience. At the end of your term, you can either extend its lease, turn in the keys, or purchase the car outright for a discounted price. It also comes with typically lower down and monthly payments than its auto loan counterpart because it's only a temporary driving solution. If you can drive within mileage restrictions and don't care for complete ownership, then consider reviewing lease options at Dulles Kia in Leesburg, VA.
