Buy vs Lease in Shreveport, LA

Whether you’re a first-time car-buyer or a veteran in the automotive industry, it can be a difficult choice figuring out whether to buy or lease your car. We at Orr Kia of Shreveport want to make it a little easier by shedding some light on the benefits of each option, so you can make the most informed decision possible. Contact us with any additional questions you have, and our friendly team will be happy to assist you!


The traditional method of securing a car is to purchase it, and many people opt for this for good reason. The advantage to this avenue is that all your payments go towards you eventually owning the car. Here’s how it works. When you decide to buy your vehicle, you do not have to finance the full amount for the car up front. You just have to pay an affordable down payment, and then pay the rest of the amount in monthly installments over a period of four to seven years. Once that period of time is over and all the payments are made, you will officially be the owner of your car! That is when you can decide whether you want to keep it, pass it on to your kids, trade it in for an upgraded model, or sell it!


If you don’t want to worry about the hassle of trading or selling your car, then you can opt for the increasingly popular option of leasing. When you lease, you are essentially borrowing a vehicle from our dealership for a set amount of time. Our Finance Department will work with you to create a leasing contact for about two to four years based on your annual mileage. Then, since you won’t be paying towards owning your vehicle, the only payments you’ll make while you’re leasing will be based on the depreciation of the car while it’s in your possession. That means low monthly payments for you, and the opportunity to upgrade to the most modern model on our lot every few years! If you don’t wish to upgrade, you also have the opportunity to pay the difference towards ownership on your currently leased model, or simply hand in the keys and walk away.

Online Tools

Whichever option you choose, we have a suite of online tools to help you through the financial side of securing your vehicle. Under the Finance tab at the top of our website, you will be able to start with our Payment Calculator. There, you will be able to crunch some numbers and figure out your buying power and even calculate a prospective monthly payment based on models you’re interested in. Once you’ve solidified some dollar amounts, take the leap and Get Pre-Qualified in less than two minutes. Or, to really lay some groundwork, fill out our Finance Application so we can put together some loan options for you. Make sure to check out our New Vehicle Specials along the way so you can save some extra cash to spend on your weekends in Downtown Shreveport. All that’s left to do then is to come in to our location and seal the deal!

We hope you have a better idea of how to buy vs lease in Shreveport, LA, after reading this helpful guide. Visit our team at Orr Kia of Shreveport as soon as today and get started securing your new Kia vehicle!

Going Beyond The Call of Duty

I purchased a brand new 2017 Kia Optima from the Shreveport store and I'm more than happy with my car. My sales person was Mr. CLEM LOTT. Y'ALL he went over and beyond the call of duty to get me the car I wanted. He is very professional and make sure your good and understand the process before you leave the lot. My experience with Kia have been great I pray that it stays that way. I'm loving my car. I named her Sugar. Lol!!! So head on over to Kia in Shreveport and ask for the best sales person by the name of CLEM LOTT because, he'll do you right.Team KIA!!!!

Totally Different Experience

My wife and I stopped by earlier today to check out one of those smart cars parked out front. Just curious about them but was hesitant to do so because we all know what that would lead to. I can't stand that with a PASSION, but we did anyway. Low and behold, Ms Simone S. made it a totally different experience from all the rest that we have met before. She has a great attitude, very knowledgeable,easy to talk to, and patient. Even though we're not in the market at this time for a vehicle. When the time comes, it will be from Ms Simone. Note: to the powers that be, she's a keeper!!

I took my daughter to find a vehicle at Orr Kia of Shreveport. From the time we got there, they took great care of us. Wes was on time for our appointment. He listened to what my daughter wanted so much so that when he showed her a vehicle, she told me " It's like he read my mind." Everybody we had contact with was friendly and helpful!

Great Service

I got my car on black Friday 2016. I've had nothing but good experiences from day one. Kia services my vehicle even after the sale. I receive emails letting me know when my car is due service. I'm thankful for the emails because with my busy life I need the reminders. Brian Beard was my salesman. I'm not sure if he is still there. If he is ya'll go see him he will take care of you.

Doug Donohue had my car waiting for me when I got there, had me pre- approved and I spent a total of 1 1/2 hours there completing paperwork and getting in to my new ride. He even transferred the stuff from my old car to my new car. He has a personal touch that helped ease the transition and I felt very appreciated and welcomed. He and Justin helped so fast and so comprehensively that I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase an American made car. Their plant is in Georgia. Anyway, they answered all questions. Doug even adjusted my seat for me LOL. I have always had to just sit and wait forever for a vehicle but not this time!! My appt was from 5-7 and I rolled out of there at 630. Tremendous experience!!

Customer Service Was GREAT!

I would recommend them to anyone. If I think of getting another car in the near future I will definitely be back!
