Buy vs Lease near Lansing, IL

Financing and leasing a vehicle both present their own benefits when stacked against each other. All it comes down to is the individual driving and what they prefer. That is why we at Christenson Chevrolet are here to give you a little extra insight so you can educate yourself on what will work the best for you. Either way, you will be getting your hands on a premier Chevrolet driving option while receiving a competitive rate that adheres to your budgetary constraints. For more information, give us a phone call at 219-924-3344!

Leasing

When you decide to lease, you are freeing yourself from being tied down to one specific vehicle for the next decade and longer. Leasing generally lasts a few years and allows you to drive the latest and greatest vehicles on the market for a fraction of the cost. That is because unlike financing, you will only be paying for the depreciated value of the Chevrolet vehicle rather than the full listed price. All that you have to do is stop by our location and decide what vehicle you want to drive, how long you want to keep it in your possession, and the number of miles that you will drive during that time frame. After that, you can take the keys and be on your way!

Financing

Financing is vastly different compared to leasing a ride because you are paying to own. With the way Chevrolets are built in this day and age, it could be more beneficial because you will have this vehicle in your possession for years to come. The best part about taking this avenue is that once you make your final payment, you have full ownership of the vehicle that you brought home. We even let you get the process started right here on our website when you use helpful features like the online Finance Application so we can get in touch with local lenders to find the appropriate loan for the vehicle that you have in mind.

Great customer service! Improved my day after trying to go to work then discovering a flat tire. The service rep Marty was really nice and helpful, which that's not always the case in my experience in other service depots. Keep up the great work!

We got hooked up!

Kyle hooked me and my family up. We definitely will be going back when we decide to get our other car. Do not go to anybody else because they're not going to treat you like Kyle. "TRUST ME"! I was getting ready to leave because of the cold demeanor that the other salesmen had and then I met Kyle and it was like going from "car hell" to "car heaven"! Really!

Enjoyable Experience

The young lady who assisted with scheduling my appointment was courteous and informative. On the day of my appointment from the moment I drove into service center I was greeted and Jim the representative who interacted me was thorough in explaining what to expect. He also checked if there were any other maintenance needs needed for my vehicle. I never felt pressured but was given options. Jim went above and beyond my expectations. I would definitely seek him out for my next service visit.

Barb is amazing!

AWESOME-SAUCE! Where to start? Aaron Shaps should be known as Christenson Chevrolet's Salesman of the Year for selling us two brand new vehicles within less than 2 months! He certainly deserves an award! He is trustworthy. I didn't fee pressured during any portion of my purchase of a 2018 Chevy Silverado. He made everything quick & painless and actually pretty easy. His communications were quick & clear. He played no games. Everyone in the dealership was professional and polite and attentive to my needs. Aaron went above & beyond to locate my new truck. He even stayed after hours to help with the delivery. I would go no where else to buy a new vehicle and would highly recommend this establishment. THANK YOU, AARON & THE CHRISTENSON TEAM!

Thanks to Justin Nooner, and the Christensen Chevrolet team, I now have a beautiful new 2018 Traverse High Country! Justin found exactly what I was looking for and I couldn’t be more pleased. It has been ten years since I have had a new car, so I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with all the “bells and whistles” on this car, but Justin has given me a few “training” sessions... plus answers my questions via phone and text as well. You rock, Justin... thanks for your patience while sharing your expertise!

My salesman, Aaron Shaps was outstanding. He answered every question and made sure that we understood his answers. If it weren't for him, I feel confident to say that I would not have purchased my car from Christensen Chevrolet.

After wrecking my vehicle on I-65 during a snowstorm, Sunday, February 4th, my husband and I found ourselves in the market for a new one. I researched what type of vehicles I wanted and decided on a Traverse, but had some "must have" criteria. I looked at dealerships across Northwest Indiana and found what I was looking for at Christenson. Having had purchased my very 1st car from them back in 2003, I was confident they would be able to work with us. While the original person I was supposed to meet with was unable to on the day my husband and I went it, Justin Nooner stepped-up to the plate and our purchasing experience was awesome! We came home with a brand new 2018 AWD Traverse on Monday, February 12 and we couldn't be happier. Thank you Justin and the rest of the Christenson Team for everything you've done and will do in the future. Definitely will buy from them again when we're ready for another new vehicle.

By far the best looking showroom for Chevrolet in the area. The body shop has done excellent work for me on many occasions. They do outstanding work. One time I had to give them a car to re- work the bodywork another shop had done and fixed it with no problem. The next time I am looking.for a new Chevy I will definitely be going back to give them my consideration.

Da Juan Hunter a week ago-Customer service here is ALWAYS amazing!!!! Randy in service and Dave in parts are the absolute best! I have to add to this review. I had recently been having some issues with my traction control light coming on and going off. I took it to several dealerships in NYC and every place said the car was fine. I was finally able to bring my car back to Indiana and of course brought it to Christenson Chevrolet. Working with Anthony, and the amazing technicians they found the problem. As it turns out, it was my transmission control module. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that they wouldn’t be able to find my issue. These guys are truly my heros! Thank you so much!!!

Just bought my second truck from Christenson a 2017 silverado midnight edition. My salesman Justin was great. He took the time to make sure I was completely satisfied and he even stayed over 3 1/2 hours after his shift was over to make sure I was taken great care of. This dealership really knows how to treat their customers. Thanks guys.
