Luxury Car Features

For more than 40 years, D&M Auto Leasing has offered lease packages to consumers in such Texas communities as Dallas, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, and Houston. D&M Auto Leasing upholds a commitment to helping customers choose the cars and features that best suit their needs.

Contemporary car manufacturers offer a number of luxury features, many of which are included in the seats themselves. Heated seats are nothing new, but temperature-regulated seats have become even more desirable now that ventilated technology has made cooled seats possible as well. Additionally, some models in the luxury market offer massaging seats, which work via the inflating and deflating of small bladders scattered across the seat back.

Other luxury features allow for more on-demand entertainment for passengers. Satellite radio is moving toward being a standard feature, while Bluetooth connectivity is now an affordable option in nearly all makes. Car makers also are offering more advanced auxiliary connections, which allow driver and passengers to control MP3 players through the car console.

These are only a few of the features that car makers are innovating to make driving a more comfortable experience. A dealer or leasing company can share more about these and other comfort features.


Guidelines for Calculating an Affordable Car Payment

At D&M Auto Leasing, experienced professionals connect shoppers in Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, and other Texas communities with cars to suit their needs. The team at D&M Leasing provides quotes that customers can use to determine what type of car they are able to afford.

As a basic rule of thumb, car shoppers should plan to spend no more than 10 to 20 percent of their take-home pay each month, depending on the individual. Experts note that this is a rough guideline that buyers can bypass with some savvy budgeting in other areas, though it can be a good rule when calculating a lease or loan payment.

To determine more specifically how much a shopper can afford, he or she must also consider insurance costs. For both the lessee and the buyer using financing, there may be specific coverage requirements that can affect monthly insurance payments. Calculating insurance may also inspire the shopper to determine such factors as excise tax and gas costs based on the new car’s mileage rating, both of which can differ from one car to another.

Finally, the shopper needs to determine what features are needs and which are wants. Those who have particular cars in mind may choose to turn down options that are less important so that they can afford those makes or models.
