Toyota Offers 5 Year "Cash for Clunkers" Leases
Many people will be surprised to learn the "cash for clunkers" program applies to leasing as well as buying a new car.
The only requirement is the lease have a term of at least 5 years.
Toyota has 25 models that qualify for the program and they want to take advantage of the leasing option. They will now be offering 60-month leases on 5 of their most popular models:
- 2009 Toyota Corolla
- 2009 Toyota Camry
- 2009 Toyota Rav4
- 2009 Toyota Yaris
- 2009 Toyota Tacoma
The 60 month leases vary by region so they may not be offered where you reside.
If you're lucky enough to have the lease deals in your area, you can get a 2010 Corolla for $99 per month with $99 due at signing.
