Buy vs Lease in Frederick, MD

One of the difficult choices you have to make when it comes to setting your sights on a prospective vehicle is deciding whether to buy or lease. We at Shockley Honda are here to fill you in with all of the details when you visit our Finance Department to meet with our experts. In the meantime, we will lay out a list of benefits on both sides so you can become further informed with your options. For more information, give us a call at 301-245-0861!

Financing

Let’s get the ball rolling by setting our sights on the financing process first and foremost. When you choose to take this route, you are splitting up the entire cost of the vehicle that you have your eyes on into manageable monthly payments that won’t break the bank. Once you fulfill the price agreed upon, the vehicle is all yours! If you want to get the process started ahead of time, you can always tap into the helpful tools that we have implemented onto our website to streamline the entire procedure. For instance, you can get a better idea of what your down payment and monthly rate might be when you make use of the Payment Calculator. After that, fill out our online Finance Application so you can be prepared from the moment that you walk through our doors. 

Leasing

If you are the type of person that doesn’t like to limit yourself to one option and wants to stay current with the latest and greatest driving options then leasing will be right up your alley. Choosing this avenue allows you to essentially borrow the vehicle you are considering for an agreed upon mileage and timeframe. Once your term is complete, you can either purchase the Honda for its remaining value, hand in the keys and walk away, or lease a completely different model. The benefit of this is that you won’t have to pay nearly as much as you would compared to financing because you are solely paying towards the depreciation value of the vehicle. 

Inventory

Now that you know the difference between financing and leasing your next set of wheels, you can start the fun part of shopping for the appropriate ride from your mobile phone or laptop. Just double-click the New dropdown at the top of your page to promptly be redirected to a screen filled with all of the options that we currently have on our lot. If you are interested in an automobile that can get you to your next destination in an efficient manner look toward the Accord or Civic. Do you prefer something with ample cargo space that is perfect for your growing family? Then you won’t regret choosing one of our sizeable options like the Pilot or CR-V. 

We hope that we have further informed you about the benefits when you decide whether to buy vs lease in Frederick, MD! If you still aren’t sure which plan will work better, come visit our Finance Department here at Shockley Honda. We have flexible hours and look forward to meeting with you.

I can't speak for the car sales, but the service department is top notch. I've used them a couple of times and while having a car serviced is always an inconvenience, it seems less so if I bring it here. Great customer service.

I am beyond pleased with my Sales experience at Shockley Honda with David Salvas and Dante Velasquez. David was very patient, understanding, and knowledgeable. He knew all the features being offered on the vehicle I was looking at and went out of his way to make sure that I knew everything my potential new vehicle could do for me. He never made me feel pressured to make a purchase and was supportive of my apprehension. Dante was patient and understanding and helped me look into multiple different options that would best fit my particular situation. I appreciate both of their hard work! Thank you!!!

David Salvas is a fantastic salesman! We love our civic! Everyone we encountered was very friendly..We did not feel pressured at all throughout the entire visit at Shockley..with our credit situation we did not expect to get in the car we purchased but David convinced us to try for the car we REALLY wanted and Shockley made it happen with the monthly payment we asked for! Definitely the best experience I have had with a dealership and salesman

I love Shockley... I have now been a direct party to 4 vehicle purchases with this dealership over the last decade. I have never once been disappointed with the level of service or the vehicles themselves. Every single time, they impress me. Last week I decided I needed to get a small SUV and I needed just the right one. I was looking online and found the exact CRV I needed... certified preowned... low mileage, great color, perfect assets, safety features, KBB awards... it had it all even the leather seats. But I couldn't get to the dealership being a single mom and I didn't want to lose my vehicle by waiting two weeks. Turns out, that's no problem at Shockley. I applied to purchase it online, sent them my trade-in online, arranged EVERYTHING electronically and THAT DAY they brought my new CRV to my home after work... I signed the papers, handed off my trade-in and that's it! I was done! Only one thing to do - car inspection as I live in a different state LOL! For a single, working momma... this was an incredible value to me as a customer and I got a very, very fair trade in value to boot! I will recommend them forever, and frankly, I'm not that easily impressed. Thank you to Candice Speaks & Bill Collings for making it great!

We bought new 2019 CRV. Justin made our process smoothly. Justin understood what I asked. People at Shiockley seemed friendly. One of them though we were lost. We just wanted to explore the whole place. I was told those people were calm and made no pressure. That was true. I usually got crabby at the dealership, this time I was calm all the way. I was surprised.

We haven’t bought a new car in over a decade and we were thrilled with our experience! Mark was kind, patient and knowledgeable. He put us at ease and helped guide us through the choice of two vehicles. I work at the Chamber of Commerce and it was important to us that we buy a car from a Chamber member.

From the moment I purchased my car, to my scheduled maintenance these folks have been top-notch when it comes to customer service. Being in the customer service industry, myself, I know first hand how challenging customers can be... ****insert me‍‍**** Hear me out, folks. This was my first BRAND NEW vehicle. I arrived around 8/830p when they close at 9p/10p. I didn't get out of there until 1145p and it couldn't have been a smoother transaction. I didn't feel rushed, hurried or pressured from aannnyyy of the Sales or Finance team. They actually offered to stay and go over all its bells and whistles, I'm the one who had to call it a night; otherwise, I truly felt they would've stayed overnight just for me. I can't tell you how many follow-up calls I got within the first month of owning my new car. This place has knowledgeable employees who know thier stuff! Even when I (thought) I had an issue and called in giving a poor explanation of what I thought the problem was, it was solved...there was no "issue", it was user error Go buy your next Honda from these folks and ask for Justin.

First-rate Customer Service from Shockley Honda. Like all the best sales people Mark was a great listener and very knowledgeable about the Honda CRV I purchased. He was very professional, friendly and I got all the information I needed to make the decision. Frank Taylor took us through the financial process quickly and efficiently with the same friendly and personable approach. Altogether it was a satisfying experience for what is a substantial purchase purchase for most of us; I really felt that my business was valued.

If you go there to buy car make sure you’re buying it because the price is better than any other you can find around. The “Shockly experience” is nothing to be wild about, it’s gone gone downhill since I bought my first Honda in 2012. In 2012 they said I’d get free oil changes for three years then they told me it’s a total of eight, complete bait and switch. You used to get like time carwashes not anymore! Now I think they give you one free oil change and 100 free car washes. The car wash, what a joke! The last three times I’ve been to the dealership it was down “for maintenance”, so this time I went inside and asked what gives. They told me they don’t run the car wash when the temperature is below 40 but the car wash down the street at a line around the corner....

We were in need of a new car, so we called Shockey. After speaking with someone on the phone, we were referred to Mark. My wife initially looked at a Nissan online, but I wanted a Toyota. Mark found a great 15 Rav4 for us, and we couldn't be happier. Mark is a really nice guy, knowledgeable, and what he didn't know he found out for us. We would definitely go back, or refer someone to Mark for their auto needs.

I bought a Certified Pre-Owned Honda CRV from Shockley for my daughter a couple days ago. It was a great experience. First of all, the car was in excellent shape. We first worked with Mark Lawson on the test drive and the initial information about the car. We'd had a detailed test drive session on a new CRV at another dealership a few days earlier, so we didn't need that level of detail from Mark, though he did provide additional information about the specific car we'd come to see at Shockley. We later worked with Nancy (whose name isn't in the list below) on the service contracts and the financing. She was extremely helpful in making the necessary decisions and recommended a way we could use this purchase to start establishing a credit rating for my daughter.
