What are the differences?
The decision of whether to lease or purchase your new vehicle is one of the most important choices for car-shoppers to make. There are many important differences between the two which can help you make your choice. This guide highlights some of the most notable aspects.
Monthly Payments: Monthly lease payments are always lower than they would be if you purchased the vehicle. That’s because you only have to pay for the vehicle’s depreciation and additional rent charges. The depreciation estimate is based on the assumption of a certain amount of miles per year and proper maintenance of the vehicle itself.
Sales Tax: Typically, drivers who lease a vehicle will only pay sales or use tax on their monthly payments and any capitalized cost reduction. This means less sales tax paid over a longer period. When purchasing a vehicle, sales tax is paid on the full purchase price (although the value of your trade-in is often excluded from this amount).
Who Owns the Vehicle: During a lease, the dealership maintains ownership of the vehicle. At the end of a lease, you can choose to renew your lease, purchase the vehicle, or return it to the dealership and pay any associated costs. Purchasing a vehicle means that you are the owner whenever you make your final payment.
Warranty Coverage: All vehicle warranties cover terms of 36 months or less, which means it’s likely that your full lease term will be covered. This helps ensure fixed costs of driving over that period. If you finance a vehicle, your warranty will expire after a certain period and your costs of driving will be variable.
Trading Vehicles: Drivers who lease have the option to change cars whenever their lease term is up by simply entering into a new lease. Purchasing a vehicle makes it more difficult to change vehicles frequently, since you will be paying for the full cost of the vehicle and the depreciation, including any unexpected depreciation (in a lease, the risk of unexpected depreciation is carried by the lessor).
We offer affordable lease options on almost every new model. Contact or visit our dealership today for more information on leasing and purchasing.

Dedicated fandom is one thing, but dedicated tailgating takes football frenzy to a whole new level. When proper tailgating is involved, football is not a game. It is an event. Nay, it is a lifestyle. Make every tailgate a success with these top tips.
Save yourself a whole trunk of worry by making a list of all the supplies you’ll need for the big day, then check them off as you pack. You can then use the same list when you’re cleaning up to make sure you don’t leave anything in the lot. If you’re a regular tailgater, laminate that list and reuse it weekend after weekend.
Freeze Water Bottles
Easiest trick in the book. Freeze a pack of water bottles the night before, and throw them into your cooler instead of ice. After the sun has done its damage, you’ll be left with cool, crisp, bottled water instead of a sad puddle of dirty water that used to be ice.
Prepack and pre-freeze burgers, steaks, and kabobs in their marinade. Your meaty morsels will begin to thaw during transport and they’ll be ready for the grill. This trick also decreases the possibility of spoiling during the drive, especially in the midst of game day traffic.
It’s no use setting up for the party if the party can’t find you! Bring a recognizable helium balloon, or another bright marker, to distinguish your set-up from the rest of the swarming crowds. It may be tempting, but make sure you avoid balloons decorated with your team colors. They’ll be harder to find.
Wait before you head for the waste basket! That cup carrier and plastic cups can be converted into a makeshift veggie tray, and that cardboard six pack holder is a fantastic condiment caddy. Best of all, you don’t have to take them with you when you’re done.
Imagine this: you cook a mouthwatering burger, place it on a grill-toasted bun, and now all you need is…wait. You forgot the ketchup. The horror. Don’t let this be you. Pack a football-first-aid-kit, including utensils, sauces, napkins, can openers, trash bags, sunscreen, and anything else you may need. Your emergency toolkit could make the difference between a tailgate touchdown and a crash before kickoff.
Plastic for Dishes, Metal for Coal
It’s easy to forget about clean up, until you are left with a bunch of dirty dishes and nowhere to store them. Bring a plastic tub to load up with spoiled dishes, and a metal container to store hot tools and coal you want to reuse. Your clean trunk will thank you.
If you follow all these tips, there’s no doubt your tailgate will top all the rest. Carry on, tailgate champion, and show your rivals how it’s done.
Many professional athletes make insane amounts of money playing sports they love. Extreme athletes, however, love the sports they play because they're insane. Here's a look at some of the world's most extreme sports.
Big wave surfing. A wave must be at least 20 feet to be considered big enough for this extreme sport. The surfer is usually towed to the wave with the help of a really, really, really good friend on a jet ski. Sport hazards include being crushed by a 50-foot wave, getting slammed on the ocean floor, and drowning.
Heli-skiing. Since extreme surfers shouldn't have all the fun, extreme skiers invented heli-skiing. In order to participate in this extreme sport—admit it, you want to try it—you need access to a helicopter, someone to fly the helicopter, and a mountain reachable only by helicopter. The thrill in heli-skiing, in addition to dodging avalanches and taking extremely dangerous helicopter rides, lies on being able to ride never-before-touched snow.
High altitude climbing. Any sport that involves spending large amounts of time in "The Death Zone" qualifies as one of the world's most extreme sports. For most mountain climbers, gravitational pull mixed with a little bit of foolhardiness poses the biggest threat. High altitude climbers, however, have other things to worry about than falling to their death, such as hypoxia, hypothermia, frostbite, and pneumonia. Because helicopters cannot fly in the thin air of high altitude, even small injuries can lead to death. Before you climb into this deadly sport, check out Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, a report of the Mt. Everest climbing disaster in 1996.
Ultramarathoning. The dangers involved in an ultramarathon include dying a slow death from dehydration, losing toenails, kidney damage, and falling off a cliff. An ultramarathon is technically any race over the official marathon distance of 26.2 miles, which is kind of extreme, too. The sport's biggest events include the Western States 100, a 100-mile race with thousands of feet in elevation change and temperatures ranging from the 40s to the 100s; the Leadville Trail 100 Run, a 100-mile race that peaks at 12,600 feet; and the Badwater Ultra, a 135-mile race across Death Valley—in July.
Cave Diving. Even high altitude climbers, heli-skiers, big wave surfers, and ultramarathoners think cave diving is extreme. It involves all the dangers associated with deep sea diving and combines them with unknown territory, freezing temperatures, low-visibility, cramped spaces, and not quite enough oxygen. More than 500 divers, many of them experienced, have died in the past 50 years, prompting the National Speleological Society to label a successful cave dive as one you return from.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start running, surfing, skiing, climbing, or diving...On second thought, go play catch with your kids.

Do you love to turn up the heat in the kitchen? I’m not talking temperature heat – I’m talking hot sauce heat. If you do, have you ever thought about making your own signature spice? Lucky for you pepper people, hot sauce is not only delicious, but it is one of the easiest condiments to make at home. If you have a few peppers and some vinegar, follow these easy steps and you will be well on your way to producing your very own capsaicin-creation.
Start by picking out a peck of your favorite peppers. How much is a peck? Let’s say 5-10, depending on size.
Now, this part is very important. Before you do any chopping, make sure to protect yourself against the peppers. You want to avoid any contact between the peppers and your hands and eyes. Whether this protection involves simple plastic gloves or a full zombie-apocalypse-is-now getup depends on the heat level of your peppers.
Now that you’ve geared up, de-stem the peppers and take out the seeds (or don’t if you want extra heat). Throw them in an appropriately-sized sauce pot.
Add some vinegar and any additional flavoring that suits your fancy. A good standby is a 50/50 split of apple cider vinegar and white vinegar. Add enough to make a sauce, without drowning your peppers. Also toss in some garlic and onion, and a dash of salt. Really, you could add anything here, so feel free to get creative.
After simmering for about a half hour, let the mixture cool a bit and then purée and funnel into a bottle. Your sauce should last anywhere from 1-3 months in the fridge.
Well, look at you. You’ve just made your own sauce! Now go, hot-sauce-hero, and bask in your culinary achievement.
