Can You Lease a Used Car?

Can You Lease a Used Car?

Can you lease a used car near Elk River, MN? Unfortunately, the answer is usually no. It isn’t common for dealerships to offer used car leasing options, and some popular makes, including Ford and Chevrolet, explicitly prohibit used car leasing. However, if you’re willing to search far and wide, you might be able to find something that works for you. What’s more, when you come to the Cornerstone Auto, we’re happy to help you plan a used car financing agreement that fits your budget.

Used Car Leasing Facts

Why do some drivers search far and wide for used car leases near Monticello? Most choose this option because it’s associated with low monthly payments, but there are numerous caveats to be aware of.

  • Only certain used cars can be leased. Used car leases are very rare, and where they do exist, they often only apply to certified pre-owned vehicles. In such a case, your savings may be negligible compared to a new car lease.
  • You’ll still be subject to limits. As with a new car lease, it’s easy to trade up for a better vehicle once your leasing term has closed. However, while you’re under contract, you’ll still have to abide by strict mileage limits.
  • You can buy your way out of a used car lease. If a vehicle offers used car leasing, there’s a strong chance that you’ll be able to ‘buy out’ the vehicle at the end of your leasing term.
  • You may end up paying less for insurance. Since the price of your vehicle can affect the size of your insurance payments, it’s often cheaper to insure a used car instead of a new one.
