Buy vs Lease in Port Charlotte, FL

Visit Our Finance Department!

If you are a first-time car buyer, it can be difficult trying to decide which path of automotive acquisition to take. Between buying and leasing, each option has its own benefits. Read the rest of this article to learn more, and feel free to contact us at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte with your questions!

Buying

Most people choose to take the traditional route of purchasing their vehicles. When you do this, you can either pay the entire sticker price for your car up front, or you can break up the total into smaller, more manageable amounts via financing. We just ask that you contribute a down payment, and then the rest can be paid out monthly over four to seven years. When that period of time is over, you will be the official owner of your car! You can decide to sell it, trade it in, or simply keep it payment-free for as long as you would like. This avenue is a long-term, but worthwhile investment!

Leasing

If you would like a short-term contract with more flexibility, then we suggest you lease instead. When you do this, you will be borrowing your model from our dealership for an average of three years, during which time you will only have to pay towards the depreciation of your auto. Our Finance Department will work with you to determine this amount using your anticipated annual mileage and the length of your contract. At the end of your lease, you won’t have to worry about having to sell or trade in your vehicle, because we’ll take it right off your hands. Instead, you can simply focus on upgrading to a new contract with one of the latest and greatest models on our lot!

Online Tools

There are a few features on our website that can help you through the process of financing or leasing. First, make sure to find the model you want to take home by accessing our New Vehicles and Pre-Owned Vehicles online. By double-clicking on either of these tabs at the top of our website, you will be taken to a full inventory which you can peruse at your leisure. Once you find a few that seem ideal, make sure they fit into your budget with the online Payment Calculator. Finally, lay down some groundwork with our Full Finance Application if you really want to get a head start.

Hopefully, our advice will help you decide whether to buy vs lease in Port Charlotte, FL. Our friendly team is happy to help you find your dream car, so pay us a visit at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte today!

Kevin is the man! I went with my 80 year old grandfather so he could buy a new car and he was so helpful and patient. He went above and beyond to make us both feel welcome and comfortable. Highly recommend speaking to Kevin if you’re ever in the market for a new car!

Dealt with Mr. Woody and he was very nice gentleman. I didn't buy a car. They didn't budge on pricing. But kind of felt like a slap in the face on my Kia soul I bought there for a trade in, they wanted to give me 3k. I bought it for 18k in 2014. Wasn't happy. So I'm just going to go to Gene Gorman.

After having been to another dealership the day before, I walked into Fuccillo Kia knowing what I wanted and how much I wanted to spend. I was promptly greeted by Sam, the salesman before I ever even entered the building. I explained to Sam I know what I want and I don't want to waste time after having wasted hours at another dealership the day before. He listened to everything I wanted and worked with me and before I knew it I drove away with exactly the car I wanted at the price I told him I could afford and I was able to trade in my previous vehicle. They handled transferring my registration and helped me transfer my insurance. The finance dept was even able to add an extended warranty without putting me over budget! All my questions were answered and the process was as quick as it could have been.

Great service, great people, best service location

I have used Fucillo KIA in Port Charlotte for two years to service two different KIAs I purchased elsewhere. The organization, the people, the approach to customer service and satisfaction is the best of any dealership I have ever been in. If you make an appointment, it is in the system, on the clipboards and almost in the minds of the service reps. No pressure to buy stuff you don't need. Intelligent questions to determine exactly what you see as the problem. Great waiting area, almost like you are in a boutique store rather than an auto dealership. They have all the parts and people who know how to install them. I highly recommend their service department!

Bob L. Just had our K900 serviced here and as always great service, in and out the door in just over an hour. Had a coupon but paid a couple of bucks less than that. Sales people and customer service at this facility are the best I have ever dealt with anywhere and I bought my first vehicle 56 years ago.

5 star Let me start out by telling you i had the best experience here that i have ever got anywhere. I went in super nervous and scared of being turned down like everywhere else. My guy Mike G calmed my nerves was super honest about everything and even though i was there 6 hours lol he made sure that i got exactly what i wanted and nothing less! He went over and beyond for me and you should ask for him if/when you go in for a new car. Give that guy a raise he definitely deserves.
