  • You own the car, so you can keep it for as long as you want.
  • You don't have to worry about mileage restrictions, so you can drive as far and as long as you want.
  • As soon as you pay off your auto loans, you won't have any more monthly payments to make on your car.
  • Since you own the car, you can modify it any way you want.
  • When the time comes to sell your car, you can enjoy its trade-in or resale value.
To sum it up: Buying your next car is right for you if you want complete freedom to use it as you please, without any mileage restrictions, without any customization restrictions, and with the ability to sell whenever the time is right for you.
