Lease or buy: that is the car buying question

khDoesn’t matter what Connecticut car dealership you go to, Hyundai, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, or GM, to lease or buy … buy or lease??? That is the question, isn’t it? One is a rip-off, or is that something else? When is it okay to lease? Or should we buy? Agghhh!!!

Hi, it’s Jill Merriam, Dealer For The People at Key Hyundai, and leasing vs. buying a car is still the most often asked question when shopping for a new vehicle!

There’s tons of information about the topic; Consumer Reports Auto  is always a reliable source, but here’s what I have to say on the subject.

After years of helping thousands of Connecticut residents drive cars they love, here’s my official Dealer For The People take on whether you should lease or buy.

There you have it. If you’re still confused on whether you’re a candidate for leasing or buying, let our team of solution providers help you decide!

Do you prefer to lease or buy? What kind of driver are you? I’d love to hear about your experiences at jillcares@keycars.com!

School Fundraisers First Step to Sales Career

fundraisingCookie dough, wrapping paper, and candles – oh my!

You don’t have to have children to be inundated with the school fundraisers that sweep the neighborhood, offices, and outside your local grocery store.

Is this really such a bad thing?

Hi, it’s Jill Merriam, Dealer For The People at Key Hyundai in Milford and Manchester Connecticut, and now that I’m in the midst of the fundraising mayhem from a parent’s point of view, I’m changing my tune, and beginning to think all this fundraising is actually a good thing! Take a quick listen, and I’ll tell you why:

So there you have it. I hire solution providers at Key Hyundai all the time (in fact, hiring right now!), and the skills kids learn from school fundraising can absolutely be applied to work ethics, skills and talents down the road.

Do you have any experience (love or hate!) with fundraising? I’d love to hear about it at jillcares@keycars.com !
