Can You Lease a Used Car?

Man and woman shaking hands above table with signed contract.

Leasing a used car is far from common, but it is an option at some dealerships. What’s more, the option to lease is more common with certified pre-owned vehicles than it is with standard used models. Of course, some brands completely prohibit used car leases; if you’re in the market for a Ford, Buick, Chevrolet, Cadillac, GMC vehicle, or a used BMW, leasing a used car simply isn’t a possibility.

Used Car Leasing Facts

As with any leasing plan, used car leases are generally available for a lower monthly payment than you’d pay for a purchased vehicle. However, this isn’t the only thing that you should keep in mind if you’re weighing your options. Here, we’ve listed a few things that you may not know right off the bat:

  • Not all used cars can be leased. In most cases, only certified pre-owned vehicles are available to lease. In any event, a given dealer may not advertise their used lease prices, so you should always call and check to see if you have the option.
  • Used car leases also carry restrictions. Although used car leases are often less expensive than new car leases, they’re virtually identical in other respects. You’ll still have to stay within a mileage limit and return the vehicle when the term is up.
  • You’ll usually have a buyout option. If a dealership is willing to set up a used car lease with you, there’s a good chance that they’ll be willing to sell it once the lease is up. Still, it’s always smart to review the contract in advance.
  • You could save big on insurance payments. Since the cost of insurance is partially determined by the value of the vehicle that’s being insured, leasing a used vehicle is a great way to pay less for insurance.
