Buying a new Kia

  • When you buy a new Kia Optima, Sorento, K900, or any other new Kia, you own the vehicle and can keep it for as long as you'd like.
  • Buying the vehicle includes a larger up-front cost, which in turn causes your monthly payments to be higher than the monthly payments of a lease.
  • With a purchased vehicle, you can sell or trade it at any time, using money from the sale to pay off a remaining loan balance, if necessary.
  • No mileage limitations or wear-and-tear penalties to worry about means you can drive as much as you'd like and even customize it as you see fit without worrying about penalties at the end of the lease.

Leasing a new Kia

  • With a new Kia lease, drivers in Irvine, Santa Ana, Costa Mesa, and beyond can easily get a low monthly payment on a great new Kia model, though the driver ultimately does not own the vehicle.
  • With low up-front costs and lower monthly payments, leasing a new Kia is a great option for many drivers in Orange County and other nearby areas.
  • Early termination of a lease can be a costly endeavor, in some cases being almost as costly as sticking with the lease, but on the plus side, at the lease-end you can easily walk away or get into a newer Kia model.
  • The end of lease can have some fees associated with it, from excessive mileage to wear-and-tear penalties, these are usually a very small fee before getting you into a great new vehicle.
