Buy vs Lease near Mobile, AL

Stop by Today!

Finding the perfect automobile to make your daily excursions is only half of the battle of the purchasing process. After that is taken care of, you have to decide whether you would like to buy or lease your potential set of wheels. We at Terry Thompson Chevrolet understand that this can seem like a scary concept at first, but that no longer has to be the case when you trust our team of well-versed financial specialists. We will walk you through both paths so you can decide which one fits your budget and driving needs the best.

Financing

You or someone you know has probably financed a vehicle before, since it is the most popular route taken by prospective drivers. The reason people take this route is that it allows them to keep the vehicle at the end of their term by paying off the full sticker price over the span of four to seven years. When you stop by our location, we will sit down with you and walk you through the process in a pressure-free environment that requires your input. After all, we want you to be comfortable with your terms! If this sounds like the right avenue for you, you can get the procedure started today by navigating to our Payment Calculator to crunch some numbers. This way, you will know if the automobile integrates into your finances. Then, you can fill out our online Finance Application so we can get in touch with our lenders and secure a loan that fits your ride.

How Do I Lease a Vehicle?

On the other side of the purchasing spectrum is the ability to lease your ride. This option has grown in popularity in the past decade because the advancements made in the automotive industry are hard to pass up on! Since you will essentially be borrowing your vehicle from us for a period of two to four years, you will be able to experience the latest and greatest safety, driving, and technology features the moment that they hit the market! The best part is that you won’t have to pay nearly as much compared to financing, because you will only be on the hook for the vehicle's depreciated value during that time frame. Once your contract is finished, you will have the opportunity to upgrade to one of the newer Chevrolet models we have in stock. So, all that’s left to do is let us know how many miles you plan to drive per year along with how long you want to keep the vehicle, and you will be able to get back to what matters most!

Inventory

When you decide to finance, you will have new and pre-owned models at your beck and call, while with leasing, you will only be able to tap into our new driving options. For that reason, we will take a quick peek at the new Chevrolet models that we have in stock that might spark your interest. If fuel efficiency and power are your muse, consider hopping behind the wheel of the Chevrolet Cruze, Bolt EV, Malibu, or Trax. If you have a big family and need plenty of space to fit everyone and their essentials, then you can’t go wrong with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban or Traverse. No matter what your choice is, we have one here at Terry Thompson Chevrolet with your name on it, ready for a test spin.

Have you decided whether you would like to buy vs lease near Mobile, AL? If so, make your way down to Terry Thompson Chevrolet to finalize your contract and get your keys during our accommodating hours!

We purposefully drove more than an hour to the dealership after obtaining a not so stellar quote from another competitor. You saved us more than 1000 dollars!

Overall a good buying experience on a slightly used 2019 Chevy Impala! I enjoyed the speed of internet sales liaison Bianca, my test drive and point of contact with Marty Rowe, great financing experience with Jason, and good follow up customer service by Summer R. Do your homework and come prepared. No bait and switch, this was a business transaction plain and simple. I appreciated the direct, bottom line attitude. None of the "let me go ask my supervisor" games. I picked out the car in the morning and had it parked in the garage by dinner time. A big thank you to Terry Thompson Chevrolet!

I didn't actually purchase a car here but my family has and I have been there several times to test drive. Their customer practices have always been towards respecting their customer's time. If you make an appointment to test drive a car, they will have it driven up to the front and ready for you. I have never experienced that they have never advertised something that wasn't true. Family members love their service department too.

Just bought a car there. Test drove the vehicle I wanted. Noticed that the car was shaking due to weights on the wheels falling off at around 50 MPH. Asked them to fix that and it was quick handed them the key and before i knew it, it was already in the shop being repaired. Price negotiated over the phone and they were easy, honest, trustworthy and the finance department was easy. By far the fastest in and out dealership ever dealt with. Highly recommend them for anyone and if in area when i need another vehicle definitely will come back. Dealt with China over the phone, Jason Noell for finance and Richard Barlow Highly recommend as he was awesome and amazing and actually cares about his customers. Well done to all along with the gentlemen that fixed and washed the vehicle.

"FAST EASY!!! Richard Barlow is the man to ask for!!!!!!"

I have done plenty of research from Jacksonville to to Pensacola and jumped on Terry Thompson. Negotiated price over the phone with China. She said she would talk to her manager and get back with me. It didn't take but 10-15 mins and she called back. I didn't like the price, so i made another offer she said she'd call back and again 10-15 mins goes buy and my phone was ringing. She gave me out the door price and i was on my way up. Upon arrival Richard Barlow we met up with and said he would take it from there. Showed me the car. The car was ready for the most part and looked amazing. I test drove it and hit about 50MPH and noticed the car was shaking. It was due to the weights on the wheels that fell off. we brought it back and Richard wasted ZERO time to make sure it got fixed. I gave the keys to the mechanic he asked which side I thought it was coming from and he was off before I could take a step to get it fixed. Richard made sure I knew what he needed from me and was smart and FAST about the whole process. Very friendly and just an absolute please working with him. In the Finance Department I worked with Jason Noell. Everything was ready set up and he explained what each paper was that i was signing. He didn't mind how long it took me to read over the papers and answer questions I had. The ONLY NEGATIVE I didn't like is that he asked my to sign the check I had with me before he wrote the price of the vehicle on there. I noticed that and asked him write it in and fill it out before I signed for it and he did with pleasure. I don't doubt it was a long day for the entire crew and he just forgot after dealing with all the paper work to include it was at the end of the day. All and all it was an amazing experience and I wasn't there for more than an hour in a half. I truly recommend this team that I dealt with along with the dealership!!!!
