Rarely does "buying a car" mean actually buying it.
Unless you can afford to pay the entire price of a vehicle the day you "buy" it (and very few can), you're looking at financing or leasing your vehicle. That means it's not technically yours — yet.
Before you sign any paperwork on cars for sale in Billings MT, you should know exactly what you're getting into.
Read on to learn your three main options for auto financing in Billings (plus our current special offers going on during our Make the Move Sales Event!).
3 Ways to Pay for Cars for Sale Billings MT
1. Pay in Cash
As we mentioned, the easiest way to buy a vehicle is to simply pay for it up-front.
If you've got the money, you may as well pay in cash. But if you don't — or if you feel your money could be better spent elsewhere — you've got two other financing options to pick from.
2. Get an Auto Loan
For most people, Billings car loans are the way to pay.
An auto loan allows you to delay payment on some or even all of the price of your vehicle. In exchange for this service (and to guarantee you'll pay them back), lenders typically charge interest in the form of APR financing.
But not all do. At Denny Menholt Billings Nissan, we offer 0% APR financing for up to 72 months on new Nissan for sale in Billings.* And right now, you don't have to make any payments for 90 days!

3. Sign a Lease
The third (and increasingly popular) option for buying a vehicle is signing a lease.
In a lease agreement, you consent to pay a monthly fee for a set period of time (and a set number of miles) in order to use the car. It's basically like renting an apartment.
The upside is getting to drive a brand-new car. The downside is not having any ownership or equity in the deal.
Still, there are many benefits of leasing a vehicle (here are five). Perhaps that's why so many people are switching to lease agreements. As of January 2015, over 27% of all vehicles were leased — and that number has only gone up.
When you consider the low monthly payments available with lease offers, it's easy to see why.
In fact, right now we're offering lease payments as low as $189 a month on new Nissan cars for sale in Billings. Scroll down to learn more!
How to Get Good Rates on a Car Loan or Lease
If you've decided to finance or lease your vehicle (as most do), you'll want to make sure you get great rates and terms, so you're not paying any more $$$ than absolutely necessary.
