More Car, More Often
Since monthly lease payments are lower than with buying, you get more car for your money and drive a new vehicle every two to four years, depending on the term length of your lease.
Fewer Maintenance Headaches
Most people like to lease for a term that coincides with the length of the manufacturer's warranty coverage so that if something goes wrong with the car, the repairs are always covered.
Lower Up-front Cash Outlay
Most car leases require little or no down payment, which makes getting into a new car more affordable and frees up your cash for other things. However, you can choose to make a down payment, or trade in your old vehicle, to lower your monthly payment amount.
