The majority of leasees look for new cars to keep up with the latest cosmetics and gadgets cars have today. However, there are a few who are interested in leasing out a used car. How does it work? Is it the same as leasing a new car? Will I have restrictions? Here are a few tidbits on wanting to lease a used car.
When leasing a used car, it is best to look at cars around the two to three years old. Most of them are still under warranty or a certified pre-owned can come with an extended warranty. Keep in mind, sometimes the cost to lease a used model of a car can be the same or above the current year model.
Make sure to have a full inspection completed before leasing the car. You don’t want to drive it off the lot if there are problems you cannot see. Also, any problems you find can help lower the cost of the car.
There is an option to take over an existing lease, but it needs to be approved first by the leasing company and at the end of the lease, you are responsible for the repairs done by the original owner.
A downside to looking for used cars to lease is that there isn’t a wide selection to choose from since fewer companies aim for leasing new cars, not used one. So if you have a specific car in mind, you might need to go for a lease on a new car.
