Buy vs Lease near Chicago, IL

Half of the battle of the car-buying process is determining which model piques your interest. After that is accomplished, you must decide if you would like to buy or lease your prospective set of wheels. Whether you have taken one of these paths before or neither at all, don’t worry, because we at Muller Acura of Merrillville are here to lend a helping hand by laying your options out in front of you. This way, you can make a decision that positively impacts your budgetary constraints and driving needs for the long haul. When you are ready to iron out the details, meet with our Finance Department.


More often than not, potential drivers decide to go with buying because it allows them to see a return on their monthly contributions. That is because once your contract comes to a close, you will have achieved full ownership of the vehicle you have been paying toward this whole time. The way it works is that we split up the full cost over an extended period of time that generally ranges between four and seven years. In that window, you will slowly chip away at the full cost by paying off your auto loan in small monthly increments. If this sounds like the right plan for you, you can find out what you are able to afford by punching some numbers in the Payment Calculator. Then, you can receive your green light in moments by following three easy steps on the Get Pre-Approved form. If you want us to get a head start on your loan options, be sure to fill out the online Finance Application as well.

How Do I Lease?

On the other side of the automotive acquisition spectrum is the ability to lease the model that you are keen on. Unlike buying, you won’t own the keys at the end of your contract. That is because this avenue is synonymous with borrowing, and allows you to take home your potential ride for a period of time that is dependent on your goals and driving needs. Since terms generally last from two to four years, this is the perfect trial period to see if you want to keep the driving option for good. It also works best for commuters who grow bored of their vehicle fairly quickly because you can regularly upgrade. The benefit of taking the option of leasing over buying is that you will only have to foot the bill for the model’s depreciation and miles you drive, which will be a fraction of the price of financing. Then, when your terms are over, you can upgrade to one of the newest models on our lot!


One thing that both of these options share in common is your ability to take control of one of the premier Acura vehicles that we have in stock here at Muller Acura of Merrillville. You can even get the ball rolling ahead of time right from home by simply double-clicking the New Vehicles dropdown at the top of your screen. Once that is accomplished, you will be swiftly redirected to a page where you can start searching through our options at your own pace. If you want to narrow your choices down to a showing that fulfills your stipulations, use the filters on the left side of the screen. Then, you can look at all of our fantastic choices like the Acura TLX, RDX, MDX, and many more!

This was the second dealership that we visited that day. When we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome from Alex. He showed us the cars we requested and then introduced us to cars that matched our interests. We went from buying 1 car to 2 (Acura and Audi)!! They truly earned our business! Not only did they work hard to secure good rates and warranty coverage on the used vehicles (3 yrs old); but they carefully explained the process to us every step of the way. Neely was awesome too. She was patient as we updated our insurance with the new vehicles and then explained every document that we had to sign. We really felt we could trust them and that we would continue to receive top notch, quality service. We are glad to be a part of the Muller Family!

I bought my 2012 Pilot new from Team Honda but after a bad experience there, I have been going to Muller and sometimes Bosak for service. My experience with Muller has always been very good and they are't overly pushy for unnecessary services.

Entire experience from beginning to end was great! Everyone was exceptional especially my salesperson Stephan Piggee. I would definitely recommend them to future car buyers.
