Should you buy the Peugeot 2008 or subscribe to a rental formula? As things stand, the vehicle renting It is a service that is becoming very popular with individuals. The reason is none other than the great variety of advantages that the possibility of “renting” a car brings over buying a new one.
Although the option of acquiring a car in property is still the most common among the majority of Spaniards, the truth is that renting presents clear advantages compared to buying a car. It implies being able to dispose of the car immediately and having all expenses included in a fee (taxes, insurance, reviews, roadside assistance …).
Peugeot 2008: advantages of renting over buying
We talk about renting like a lease. A contract by which one of the parties, called the lessor, undertakes to temporarily transfer the use and enjoyment of a movable or immovable property to another party called the lessee. This in turn is obliged to pay for that use or enjoy a certain and determined price.
On the contrary, if you buy a Peugeot 2008, you acquire the vehicle, you have absolute ownership of the car (either immediately if you pay in cash or when you finish paying it if it is financed). As you know, you have two purchase options: paying cash, in which case the price is lower, but you have to have the money; Y financing.
The problem with financing the car, which is the most common, is that after paying an entry, a series of monthly payments and a final installment are established. In many cases, the option is given not to make this last payment and return the car, or exchange it for a new one. With everything and that, the price is still higher than in the case of renting.
