Can You Lease a Used Car?

Looking to make an upgrade to your The Villages commute? If you’re shopping with a tight budget in mind, used or certified pre-owned are excellent options to consider. But maybe you’re not quite ready to invest in buying a car outright at the moment. You might wonder, “Can you lease a used car?” Used car leasing is offered by many manufacturers, though it is typically not advertised as much as new car leasing. In the guide below, Sullivan Buick GMC covers everything you should know about leasing a used car in Ocala.

Used Car Leasing Facts

Most manufacturers only allow certified pre-owned vehicles to be leased. As a general rule, the CPO vehicles available for leasing must be fewer than four model years old and have less than 48,000 miles on their odometer. This means that if you want to lease a certified used vehicle, you’ll need to visit a franchised dealership like those that are a part of Sullivan Buick GMC near Williston, as it’s only at franchised dealerships where you can find certified pre-owned vehicles. 

According to the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), the list of manufacturers that are said to offer CPO leasing includes Acura, Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, FIAT, Honda, Hyundai, INFINITI, Jeep, Kia, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, RAM, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo.

How Does Used Car Leasing Work?

Leasing a certified used vehicle follows a pretty similar process to new vehicle leases. The difference between the sale price of the vehicle and its estimated value at the lease end will determine the monthly lease payment. 

This poses a benefit for Dunnellon shoppers –– used cars depreciate more slowly than new cars, so the difference between the sale price and estimated lease-end value will be smaller, and your monthly payments will be lower. 

Like new car leasing, when your lease ends, you will need to return your CPO lease to the dealership. There will also be mileage limits you will need to adhere to.
