Top 10 Lease Deals with the Lowest Monthly Payment

March 8, 2012

Car leasing has become more popular lately, with around 20% of all car shoppers now leasing - double the number from just a couple of years ago.

Used car prices have also been rising, which makes leasing more affordable - being that depreciation is the largest expense. Of course, not everyone should lease.

It only makes sense if you know for sure you'll be wanting a new car within the next 3 years. You also need to drive less than 15,000 miles per year and should have excellent credit.

One of the main benefits of leasing is a lower monthly payment. Some consumers just want a reliable vehicle with the latest safety features and technology. If you're in this camp, you'll like the following list I've put together.

It's the top 10 lease deals with the lowest monthly payments. All the figures have been calculated with $0 down payment. You will, however, have to add tax, title, and doc fees on top of this, which will add about $30 to $50 extra to the monthly payment for a 36 month lease.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds 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.
