Kiwis Reconsider Owning Their Own Car

Kiwis Reconsider Owning Their Own Car

Kiwi motorists are increasingly asking about the benefits of leasing their new car according to top New Zealand dealer John Andrew Ford. The company reports that operating leases now account for more than half of its new business.

According to Mike Critchley, General Sales Manager, John Andrew Ford : `Many businesses have been comfortable with leasing their new cars from John Andrew Ford for many years. But we have had a huge surge in enquiries from private individuals since a TV programme revealed that you could be around $3,000 better off with our Falcon XR6 operating lease package rather than purchasing a used small car over three years.’

He pointed out: `There are a number of other benefits too; a new car from John Andrew Ford is often cheaper to maintain than a used imported vehicle, the lease may be treated as a business expense, the fixed monthly cost means you know exactly what you are paying for your motoring, the low initial outlay means you don’t tie up your own cash, it comes with a three year or 100,000 km warranty and 24 hour roadside assistance. Best of all at the end of the term you simply hand back the keys – no worries.’

The Falcon XR6 is currently available from $499 per month, plus GST and on-road costs with a 36 month, 45,000 km non maintained operating lease.
