Current Lease Deals Under $200 Per Month
Finding a bargain on a lease can allow you to drive a new car without the high cost.
There are numerous deals out there that will set you back less than $200 per month - after an initial outlay somewhere in the $2,000 neighborhood.
From the smallest car on the U.S. market to a full-size pickup truck, it's possible to stay in this budget arena.
You can find payments below $200 on the following cars right now:

There are also some leftover 2011 models at similar rates, including the tiny 2011 Smart ForTwo Passion Coupe ($179/month, 24 months, $2033 at signing) or, at the other end of the scale, a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado ($189/month, 39 months, $2039 at signing).

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
