The Top 10 Best Lease Deals in May

May 24, 2012

TrueCar recently researched all the lease deals currently available to determine which ones provide the most bang for your buck.

They looked at the monthly payment, lease term, down payment, and mileage for each deal and came up with the top 10 best lease deals.

The deals range between $159 to $579 per month with down payments averaging around $2,000. My recommendation when it comes to leasing is to always roll the down payment into the monthly lease payment. This helps protect you in the event the car is totaled or stolen.

To maximize your lease deals, I recommend you negotiate them using CarWoo, which lets you obtain lease bids online through multiple dealers.
