First I would suggest locating your ‘’lease contract’’ and find the “residual value” of your car. This is what your car is predicted to be worth — but at the end of the lease, which might still be a few months away.
Secondly you’ll need to contact the (dealer) to schedule a time to complete the buyout. There are a few other factors involved in deciding whether to buy your leased car. But let’s assume you are going to move forward.
You’ll need to know how many miles are on your car when you speak with the (dealer) a few other details you’ll need to know and have readily available Including knowing your lease account Information, VIN ect
Next! Let’s run some numbers, you know what the car will cost you, unless you can pay cash it’s time to set up a new loan. I’ll work with you to get estimated monthly cost and secure the loan
Also since you are buying a used car, I would recommend shorter TERMS You don’t want to still be making payments on a car that is past its prime. Keep the loan shorter and you’ll have a shot at enjoying a few payment-free years/ perhaps a new ride! also with wiggle room to cover repairs that creep up.
There’s some chance that your monthly payments could be a little more than when you are leasing. Don’t let this confuse you. In the end, you’ll own a car you can keep for many more years without a car payment. And if you have money saved, I highly recommend making a down payment to reduce the balance you will owe — and the amount of interest you’ll pay.
Now that you know the process of a lease buyout, Give Andy a call about your options. He can help you figure out whether leasing or buying is better for you. Contact Andy McConnell Today!!

2021 FORD BRONCO NOW!
So I’ve learned the 2020 Corsair – is inspired by the Latin word “cursus” meaning journey – Corsair is designed to give luxury customers technology to make their drive effortless, such as using your phone as a key, head-up display and standard Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ driver-assist features. Referred to as ‘sculpture in motion’ Corsair embraces elements of both the full-size Lincoln Navigator and three-row Lincoln Aviator while building on these cues with even more flair. The prototype was painstakingly sculpted in clay to create the best. The Corsair description from Lincoln reads “features exquisite contouring throughout the body section of the door, offering a deep landscape of curvature and relief with a fast-falling roofline.”
Active Noise Control enhances overall sound quality throughout. Six unique symphonic chimes – replacing standard electronic alerts – inform drivers of everything from an open fuel door to an unbuckled seat belt. The chimes, recorded by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, add another layer to the calming soundscape of the cabin. The horizontal interior design lends a visual calmness to the space, which is crafted with supple, hand-selected materials. Breaking up the elements, particularly the console, emphasizes volume and enhances practicality with additional front-row storage. A specially tuned 14-speaker Revel™ premium audio system is available for the all-new Corsair. Placement, tuning, calibration and the number of Revel speakers are all unique to each Lincoln vehicle, designed to ensure audio quality and accuracy for each cabin size and acoustics. Available wireless charging for compatible mobile devices is located in the front-row armrest, while a convenient media bin is available for passengers in front as well.
Multiple power outlets are located throughout, while standard Wi-Fi keeps all occupants connected. Additional technologies are seamlessly integrated through SYNC® 3 with AppLink™; users simply plug their mobile phone into their SYNC 3-equipped Corsair to access apps directly from an available 8-inch touch screen. In terms of well-being and convenience, Lincoln’s available Perfect Position seats offer 24-way adjustability, massage capability and additional lumbar support for the driver and front passenger.
Second-row passengers will find legroom and flexibility thanks to the sliding seats that offer up to six inches of travel and a 60/40 fold-flat or split-bench option. In fact, Corsair offers more legroom in the second row than many larger luxury SUVs including the Mercedes Benz GLS and Tesla Model X.
Three new Lincoln interiors debut on the all-new Corsair – Beyond Blue, with its vivid blue and white palette, Cashew, rich tan, and black blend, and Medium Slate, a soft gray with touches of Ebony.
Refined power staying true to it’s Quiet Flight DNA, Corsair is engineered to deliver the effortless drive experience and sensation of gliding over the road. Two turbocharged four-cylinder engine options are available – a standard 2.0-liter with a targeted 250 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque and an available 2.3-liter with a targeted 280 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. Each is mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission for agile performance. Corsair features a Lincoln-first rear integral bush suspension, which delivers a smooth ride by directly absorbing impacts that would otherwise be felt in the cabin.
Lincoln’s intelligent all-wheel-drive system, available with both engines, allows for enhanced all-weather capabilities and bold performance. It optimizes efficiency by seamlessly switching between front- and all-wheel drive depending on road conditions, resulting in all-season confidence behind the wheel and an enhanced ride for passengers. The system’s all-wheel-drive disconnect capability switches automatically from front-wheel drive to all-wheel drive in response to road, speed, temperature and other conditions. ” The drive can be further customized with five of Lincoln’s signature drive modes – Normal, Excite, Slippery, Deep Conditions and Conserve – so clients can choose the setting that’s most appropriate for conditions.
Customizable technologies Corsair delivers a wealth of intuitive, customizable technologies that allow clients to personalize their driving experiences to exactly their liking. With Phone As A Key technology, activated through the Lincoln Way™ app, owners can lock and unlock, open the liftgate and most importantly, start and drive Corsair with their compatible smartphone – no smart key fob necessary. The technology offers other amenities similar to a smart key fob as well. Not only does it allow drivers to remotely start and gain entry to their Corsair, but it also triggers a personal profile that can be created and paired through intelligent access technology. The profile allows the vehicle to automatically adjust up to 80 features to an owner’s preference – including seat, mirror and pedal positions. Should their phone battery go dead, clients can use the vehicle’s standard exterior keypad to enter a backup code to gain access to Corsair, then use the center touch screen to initiate starting and driving the vehicle. If a client’s phone is lost or stolen, Phone As A Key can be easily deleted, providing peace of mind.
Also available is Lincoln’s Head-Up Display, which shows selected information on the windshield instead of the instrument cluster, helping drivers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. Corsair, like all Lincoln vehicles, comes standard with a suite of driver-assist features known as Lincoln Co-Pilot360*. It provides Pre-Collision Assist with automatic emergency braking and Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Information System, a Lane-Keeping System, rear backup camera and auto high-beam lighting. An available upgrade, Lincoln Co-Pilot360™ Plus, adds:
• Adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assist to help guide the vehicle using stop-and-go, lane centering technology, and speed sign recognition, which scans speed limit signs along the roadway, adjusting speed based on the information obtained
• Evasive steer assist offers assistance to the driver to help avoid a collision with a slower or stopped vehicle ahead; it provides additional steering support when a collision cannot be avoided by braking alone
• Reverse brake assist can help stop the vehicle when backing up if Corsair’s integrated rear sensors detect an obstacle at the rear
• Active Park Assist Plus removes the stress from parking by taking over steering, shifting, braking and acceleration functions with the touch of a button to navigate parallel and perpendicular parking spaces with ease

Here are some winter car care tips
* Begin with the basics. Review your owner’s manual and follow the manufacturer’s service intervals.
* Replace worn wiper blades and keep plenty of washer fluid on hand. Check that all lights and bulbs are working.
* If you’re not a dedicated do-it-yourself-er, contact the courteous staff member at Preston Ford
* Replace worn tires with all-season radials or snow tires, as conditions warrant; don’t forget to check the spare tire and jack. This is a good time to have alignment problems corrected.
* Correct engine performance problems (rough idling, poor acceleration or hard starts) before cold weather sets in.
* Have a qualified auto technician check the condition of your battery and cables, plus the radiator, and all hoses and belts.
* Make certain the heater and defroster are in good working condition; have the exhaust system examined for leaks, a potentially deadly condition in closed vehicles.
* Carry emergency gear: flares, boots, gloves, ice scraper, high-energy snacks, a blanket, shovel, flashlight, tire chains, a few tools, and a cell phone.
