Woody’s prices are independent third party verified to be among the lowest in the nation with NO hidden tacked on fees. “We don’t raise the prices on ours in order to fool you by showing a higher value on yours” stated CEO, Brent Kline. “My father along with Grandpa Woody taught us how to do business by keeping things fun, simple, friendly and inexpensive” Kline further stated. The sales advisors are paid on a salary, to advise and assist the customer into doing what is best for the customer.” Woody’s picked the Legends Outlet Mall due to its great management, stores and attractions. “The mall…like our dealership… attracts people from a huge region.” “The mall has great stores and restaurants, is well run and has attractions such as Nebraska Furniture Mart, Cabelas, Kansas Speedway, T-Bones baseball, and the MLS Champion Sporting Kansas City soccer team” said Kline. “Furthermore, I believe these customers will travel to our regional location in Chillicothe, MO once they understand how we do business…how different we are from the typical dealer and that we have over 1000 cars available in the Kansas City region alone…not to mention the thousands more available outside of our region” Kline further stated. Kline went on to say “People drive further to eat at a good restaurant and an automobile is the second largest purchase customers make.” “There are good reasons people are willing to drive to and wait for a table at a good restaurant and that is a pleasant vs. an unpleasant experience…only with a car the steaks are higher (pun intended).” “With our no hassle approach and our huge selection, Woody’s is certainly worth the drive” stated Kline. Kline is a third generation car dealer joining his grandfather Woodrow (Woody) Wilson Kline and Woodrow (Fritz) Kline. The original dealership began in 1947 selling the brand of Kaiser Frazier. The store is officially scheduled to open May 8th, 2014.

Closed-end Leases – AKA (“walk away, long term rental, operating lease, short term lease”) This will be most of our summer camps, tour and adventure operators and colleges – and other business that have need for 1-time need, or short term seasonal or cyclical needs
Closed-end leases are most common for consumer leases today. This type of lease allows you to simply return your vehicle at the end of the lease and have no other responsibilities other than possible payment of excessive damage or mileage charges.
Closed-end leases are based on the concept that the number of miles you drive annually is fairly predictable (12,000 miles per year is typical), that the vehicle will not be driven in rough or abusive conditions, and that the vehicle’s value at end of the lease (theresidual value) is therefore somewhat predictable.
At the time you lease, the leasing company estimates the vehicle’s lease-end residual value based on the expected number of driven miles. If the vehicle is actually worth less than the residual when you turn it in, the leasing company takes the financial hit, not you.
On the other hand, if the vehicle is worth more than the residual, and you have the option to purchase, you may want to buy the vehicle and keep driving it — or sell it and make a profit. This happens frequently.
Open-end Leases – AKA and VARIATIONS include (“capital lease, finance lease, commercial lease, lease with required balloon, Lease with conversion – required buyout) This will be the rent of the market, long term fleets, cycling and rotation to cover ongoing use, high miles, and special equipment.
Open-end leases are used primarily for commercial business leasing. In this case the lessee, not the leasing company, takes all the financial risks, which is not so much a problem for a business, since the cost can be expensed. Annual mileage on a business lease is usually much greater and less predictable than the average 12,000 miles-per-year of a non-business lease.
In open-end leases, you are responsible for paying any difference between the estimated lease-end value (the residual) and the actual market value at the end of the lease. This could amount to a significant sum of money if the market value of your vehicle has dropped or you drive many more miles than expected. Often, the residual for an open-end lease is set much lower than for a non-business closed-end lease, which reduces the lease-end risk, but can significantly increase the monthly payment amount.
