Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, D&M Auto Leasing has expanded to include Grand Prairie, Houston, and Fort Worth, making it one of the largest consumer car leasing companies in the United States. Highly rated by its customers, D&M Auto Leasing supports more than 20 charities, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD).

Founded in 1980 by a mother who lost her daughter in a drunk driving accident, MADD strives to stop underage drinking and reduce the number of drunk driving accidents and fatalities. According to the organization’s statistics, 28 people are killed every day due to drunk driving, and every two minutes a person is injured in a drunk driving crash.

Those interesting in supporting victims and survivors of drunk driving through MADD can volunteer, participate in a MADD-sponsored event, or make a donation. Although any amount of money is welcome, MADD encourages giving a “bear hug,” which, for $35, provides a teddy bear to a child affected by drunk driving.

D&M Auto Leasing has leased thousands of vehicles since the company opened in 1976, and 75 percent of its business comes from referrals or repeat customers. That means customers appreciate D&M’s service. The largest auto leasing company in America, D&M Auto Leasing has locations in Dallas, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, and Houston.

Americans leased more cars in 2016 than any previous year, but many consumers are still unsure of the advantages of leasing a car over buying one. The first major advantage is that customers do not have to put down as much money up front, which makes an expensive car more affordable.

Leased cars used for business purposes are a direct write-off, and there is no need to amortize or keep track of mileage. Leased cars are also easy to upgrade to the latest model every two or three years.

Many people are concerned about not owning anything after making all the payments on a leased car. Unfortunately, even if you purchase a car, it is a depreciating asset. When a new car is driven off the lot, 20 percent of its value is already gone, and by the time the car is paid for, it is worth very little on the open market.
