Buy vs Lease near Pasadena, TX

Half of the battle of the automotive purchasing process is determining whether you would like to buy or lease your potential set of wheels. If this is your first time, don’t worry, as we at DeMontrond Kia are here to fill you in with all of the details! Both paths offer their own respective benefits, and your choice is based on what will adhere to your financial needs and driving requirements. For more information, visit our Finance Department today. 

Leasing

Let’s begin by addressing the option that is becoming more and more common as time passes. Drivers are switching over to leasing contracts, because they allow them to experience the latest automotive updates on a more frequent basis. That is because this route to auto acquisition allows you to borrow your favorite Kia vehicle from us for a set mileage and period of time that falls between two and four years. This plan also offers the utmost in terms of affordability, because you will only be on the hook for the vehicle’s depreciation while it is in your possession. Since you are saving cash, feel free to opt for upgrades to customize your vehicle directly to your liking! And, when your term wraps up, you will be able to upgrade, hand in the keys and walk away, or pay the difference to own the vehicle for good.

Buying

On the other side of the fence, you reserve the right to purchase the vehicle you are interested in for its full value. This is known as financing, and we will split up the sticker price of the automobile over a window of time that lasts between four and seven years. Doing so allows you to slowly chip away at the vehicle’s cost through small monthly installments, so you don’t have to cover the entire value up front. So, if you want to see a return on your investment, then this is the avenue for you! To see what your monthly contributions look like, input some numbers into the online Payment Calculator. Once you find a model and trim level that you can afford, head over to the Finance Application and fill out the empty fields before submitting. Once we receive your inquiry, we will get started on your loan options!

Inventory

Do you think you know which path makes sense for you? If so, you can begin looking through our inventory right from home to find a driving option that fulfills your stipulations. Just select the New dropdown and the model that sparks your interest. Doing so will send you to a screen where you can refine your viewing even further by using the filters on the left side of your screen. If you are interested in a family-size vehicle that puts a premium on technology, safety, and cabin space, then look no further than the Kia Sorento, Sportage, or Sedona! On the other hand, you won’t regret opting for the Optima or Forte to give you the utmost in terms of frugality. Whatever your choice may be, we have something for everyone on our showroom floor. 

Once you decide whether to buy vs lease near Pasadena, TX, make your way to DeMontrond Kia. We have flexible business hours for your utmost convenience.

"I recommended a CU preferred Dealer"

Problem Solved!

UPDATE: After the bad experience over the weekend, Monday Martin Carbajal, new car sales manager reached out and asked for a chance to make the situation right. He offered to provide a drive-out price as requested and went the extra mile to put together an acceptable quote and even sent a sales order showing the price details. My son chose to pursue the offer because of price and the "warranty forever". He purchased the car Monday night with Martin's help. Martin really stepped up, genuinely apologizing for the situation and worked hard to correct the bad experience and turned it around. I appreciate Martin pushing to convert what was a disappointing exchange into a satisfying transaction. The dealer won't get 5 stars because the situation should never have happened but Martin did turn it around and HE deserves 5 stars. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I recommended my son to a Shell Federal Credit Union "preferred" dealership, DeMontrond Kia and have come to regret the whole experience. DeMontrond Kia had a Sorento listed via Cars.com that was listed less than any other EX models on the site @ $28,712. He went to the dealership with an approval letter from the Credit Union. When he arrived, the salesperson he met was very nice but said that was the maximum lowest price with all available rebates and incentive deals and that the car price for my son was actually $33,500. They left the dealership having felt "baited and switched". Later the same day, I submitted an online request for a price and was emailed by the Internet Manger of the dealership Thom R. asking how he could help. I explained my son's experience and asked for a drive-out price on the specific car stock # if indeed the advertised Cars.com price was NOT actually the price. He responded with an excuse that the "price you saw earlier was a mistake where the website was using all available rebates and actually double dipping one of the rebates." He then listed the pricing of the car with available rebates and incentives with a drive-out price of $29,112. I noticed that my son would not qualify for the Loyalty discount of $1500 and asked if he would still honor the drive-out price of $30,612. He replied that "Yes all they would lose is the $1,500 owner loyalty. So yes $30,612 Drive out." I replied that the pricing was acceptable for the specific stock number at the stated drive-out price of $30,612 and asked how we needed to secure the car. He offered that he could come do the paperwork and take the car and they would finish with the Credit Union on Monday. I replied that He would head to the dealership and thanked him for making the earlier bad experience right again. At almost the same time I was replying, he replied that "I’m sorry it’s the sell price of $30,612 plus TT&l". I replied that I had asked for the drive-out price at the beginning and that he himself had referenced "drive-out" price twice in our email exchange. I asked him to honor the price he had quoted as drive-out but he refused. I plan to submit a request to have this dealership removed from my Credit Union's preferred dealer list. If the list indeed exists to provide customers with dealers committed to an honest car-buying experience and not "pay to play", I am hopeful they will be removed. I was forced to select 1 star, they deserved NONE.
