For many Americans, having a car is a necessity. Unfortunately, for some who are on a budget, owning a new car can be expensive, especially when considering the costs of financing, insurance, and maintenance. Many who are on a budget turn to used car dealerships as an alternative to purchasing a new vehicle, and this is a great option for many. With buying a used car comes risk, though, as some older vehicles require fixing up.
However, car leases are also an excellent choice for those who need a car but would like something newer that can fit into a budget. Car leases typically cost much less than traditional financing to own a car, and the lessee still gets the advantage of driving a new car. Also, car leases typically last three or five years, and when the lease ends, the lessee has the option to finance the car or lease another.
One popular option for leasing right now is the Volkswagen, or VW, which has plenty of new car dealerships all over the US–including in the Los Angeles area. Volkswagen, or the “people’s car,” produces over 5,000,000 cars each year, making it one of the world’s largest and most popular vehicle manufacturers. You can find plenty of VW lease specials if you visit a dealer today.

In addition to purchasing or leasing a new car, learning about cars can be fun, too. Here are four fun facts about cars:
1. When you start your car, it uses half an ounce of gasoline. For a visual, that’s about 1/3 of a shot glass!
2. For most American cars, their horns beep in the key of F. Who knew your car was musical?
3. Speaking of music, car radios are standard in all cars now, but the first car radio was actually invented in 1929. Today, we have more than just an AM/FM radio in our cars, with satellite radio, CD players, and auxiliary inputs for MP3 players all widely available.
4. The original Volkswagen Beetle (or “Bug”) was the longest-running and most manufactured car in the world, with over 23 million Beetles made between 1938 and 2003. Today, Volkswagen sells a newer version of this classic.
