Leasing Popularity Grows Says

Cincinnati, Ohio April 16, 2008

"Vehicle leasing popularity grew for the fifth straight year according to recently posted 2007 new vehicle industry data", said Company Founder, Ron Joseph Jr. Leading sources such as J.D. Power and CNW Marketing Research differ in terms of their 2007 new vehicle lease penetration estimates with 19.3 and 27.0 percent respectively, but the upward trend is evident when compared to previous year results for each organization.

"Obviously our team is excited to hear that new vehicle lease penetration continues to rise, but the ultimate beneficiary will be the automotive consumer. Not only will they have a better selection of lease offers to choose from, but will also have the advantage of lower monthly payments." Joseph added.

Lower lease payments will be the likely result of several key market factors. First, growth in the lease segment will create additional competition meaning lessors will need to work hard to win potential lessees from rivals. Second, the duration of traditional automotive loans for new vehicles approached five and a half years in 2007 making that option less attractive to many consumers when compared to significantly shorter lease commitments. Third, interest rates continue to trend lower reducing the money factors used to calculate leases.

Leasing has historically been more prevalent among luxury nameplates as opposed to those with a broader appeal and price point. It appears that this trend will remain consistent for the time being with growth present in both segments. Dealers regardless of make embrace leasing because of the shorter client cycle and consistent efforts by manufacturers on their behalves to retain customers.
