Drivers save more with Ford car leasing than they may have thought
With a new study from Consumer Reports revealing that 61 percent of Ford owners would likely buy another vehicle from the American manufacturer, the automaker is looking like a solid pick for car leasing
in this country. A second study released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that lessees and owners of Ford products may be getting more for their money than they had bargained for.
The new study revealed that Ford, and its subsidiary brands Mercury and Lincoln, on average cost less to repair after a collision thank other automaker's vehicles in the same segment. This factor benefits drivers by not only ensuring speedy and relatively cheap recovery service after an accident, but also by lowering their car insurance rates since insurers tend to draw data from repair cost statistics.
"Vehicle affordability continues to be the most important purchase consideration for car and truck buyers, rivaled only by fuel economy," Frederiek Toney, vice president, Ford Customer Service Division, told the press. "We design our vehicles to be easier and more affordable to repair because we know this saves our customers money in insurance premiums and repair costs over the long term."
