The Chrysler dealership I went to said they didn't offer leases at all, and most of the other dealerships had outrageous monthly payments on leases...leasing is supposed to be less expensive
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
Recent news headlines announce many banks and credit unions have stopped funding auto leases, including Wells Fargo & Co., one of the largest financial backers of auto leases last year. Some auto manufacturers have followed suit, including an announcement from Chrysler last month saying they have stopped offering auto leases all together. Ford, General Motors and many foreign brands have responded by tightening their terms and raising rates and monthly payments.
While manufacturers and financial institutions are moving away from vehicle leases, leasing still remains the financing method of choice for many automobile consumers. Consumers who enjoy driving a new car every few years have come to realize that the most responsible way to ensure they don't end up upside down with an auto loan is to lease instead of buy. Leasing offers a safer alternative to buying in a troubled economy plagued with consumers owing more on loans than the value of their collateral.
"I have a great job, but I'm still worried about the economy," says Susanne Shirey, a new car shopper in Dallas, Texas. "The last thing I need to worry about right now is whether or not I'll be upside down on car loan..." Shirey says she would prefer to lease but was discouraged when many of the Dallas area dealerships she visited said they were no longer offering leases. "The Chrysler dealership I went to said they didn't offer leases at all, and most of the other dealerships had outrageous monthly payments on leases...leasing is supposed to be less expensive" says Shirey.
So with more consumers wanting to lease than ever before, and most institutions refusing to offer aggressive lease options, consumers are left to do more leg work than ever before to find affordable car lease options. Privately held companies like D&M Auto Leasing have stepped up to help.
In business since 1973, D&M Leasing is one of the largest consumer auto leasing companies in the United States. With several offices in the Dallas -- Fort Worth and Houston metros, D&M has established a business model centered on consumer auto leasing and strong enough to weather the storm.
Customers of D&M Leasing can still find the safer and more affordable alternative to buying a car that auto lease customers have come to expect. "We see this as an opportunity to solidify ourselves as the industry leader that we are...we are still helping thousands of customer each month find the car of their dreams with a monthly payment that's up to 50% less than buying" says Joe Graber, Vice President of D&M Leasing. "We are still offering customized lease packages on the exact same Chrysler car that you can't get from the dealer...leasing is all we do" says Graber.
