Can You Lease A Used Car?

Used cars on a lot

If you’re like a lot of drivers, you’ve pondered the advantages of leasing a car vs. buying used. But what about leasing a pre-owned vehicle? Can you lease a used car? Are there used car leasing companies in the Hood River area? Those are good questions. Let’s answer them.

Used Car Leasing – Is it possible?

Can you lease a used car? A lot of Goldendale, WA drivers have done just that. This sort of leasing is normally done through dealerships acting as used car leasing companies. That’s because most banks will not authorize a lease on a used car. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • The lease will most likely be for a certified pre-owned vehicle.
  • Odds are that you will have lower payments than if you were to lease a new car.
  • Depreciation is less of a factor than leasing a used car. And that depreciation is reflected in your down payment, or what you owe at the end of the lease.

Does Used Car Leasing Make Sense For You?

Can you lease a used car? Yes, but used car leasing may not be right for everyone. Here are some of them:

  • Used cars can possibly incur more repairs than new cars.
  • A used car is often not under warranty unless it is certified pre-owned.
  • You will still want to compare the lease terms for a certified pre-owned vehicle with those for a new vehicle to make sure you’re getting a better deal.

Leasing a Car vs. Buying Used

Does it make more sense just to buy a used car? That depends. Here are some factors to consider:
