Can You Lease a Used Car?

Are you searching for a great deal for an affordable car near Watsonville or Scotts Valley wondering, “Can you lease a used car?” While this isn’t always an option at every dealer (most notably at Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, and GMC dealerships), you could inquire about leasing a used car at Santa Cruz Dodge Ram! Take a look at our available inventory of pre-owned vehicles and contact us to see if we have any used car leasing options!

Used Car Leasing Facts

If you’re able to find a dealer that will offer used car leasing, then it can be a fantastic option. Used car leasing grants drivers with cheaper monthly payments and allows for the same freedom that any car lease gives you. Here are some additional facts you should know about used car leasing:

  • Which Used Cars Can Be Leased? – Used car leases are relatively rare, and not every used model can be leased. For the most part, only certified pre-owned models are the only used cars that you will ever find with the ability to lease. Used car lease pricing isn’t always advertised, so you may find it beneficial to ask a dealer if there are any possibilities of used car leasing.
  • Used vs. New Car Lease – If you’re able to lease a used car, then the cost of your monthly payments should be more affordable than what you could expect to pay for a new model, all the while getting the same benefits of new vehicle leases.
  • Can I Buy a Used Car After I Lease? – As long as you are able to lease a used car through a dealership, you should have the ability to buy the car after your lease term has run out. This provides drivers with a lower residual value than performing a lease buyout on new models.
  • Insurance for a Leased Used Car – Car insurance costs are partially dictated by the value of the car itself. If you lease a used car, then you could have the additional benefit of paying less for your car insurance.
  • CPO Vehicle Warranties – You could end up having more expected maintenance costs on certified pre-owned cars than newer models, but CPO vehicles also offer extended warranties that cover plenty of important components.
