How to Lease a Car

While most people are familiar with financing a vehicle, many drivers are not as knowledgeable about leasing a car. If you have been wondering how to lease a car, you’re not alone. Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Schaumburg is here to explain the process as well as the benefits of leasing a car, so you can see if this financing method is a better fit for you.

The Basics of Leasing a Car

  • Determine the vehicle you want in advance – Before heading to the dealership, it is important to do a little research. Narrow down your options, then try to calculate your estimated monthly payments, so you know what to expect before beginning the process at Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Schaumburg.
  • Know the terms of the lease – All auto leases are a bit different, but most of them have at least a few similarities. Most lease contracts allow Barrington drivers to commute up to 12,000 miles per year. If you go over those limits, you will be required to pay a penalty. Calculate the typical amount of miles you travel each year to make sure that leasing is a cost-effective option for you.
  • Look for lease deals – Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Schaumburg has a variety of lease offers available to make leasing an even more affordable alternative to financing.
  • Consider a longer lease – Leasing a vehicle for three years rather than two can cut your monthly payments down, but remember that the longer you have the vehicle, the more likely it is to undergo wear and tear.

Benefits of Leasing a Car

Why should you consider leasing your next car? There are a few great benefits that make it a good choice for Hoffman Estates drivers.

  • Monthly payments are lower.
  • A smaller down payment is required (or you may not need to make a down payment at all).
  • You can enjoy a brand new vehicle more often.
  • Repairs are typically still covered under warranty during the terms of the lease, so you don’t have to worry about out-of-pocket expenses.

Keep in mind that when you lease a vehicle, you will not be able to customize it as you see fit, and you may be responsible to pay for excess wear and tear on the car.
