The Cheapest Lease Deals Currently Offered
Nearly every car manufacturer right now is offering special lease deals. But they come and go, so you have to be on the look out. For example, Honda's big $0-$0-$0-$0 promotion was only through March and April.
These manufacturer-backed leases are usually very good deals. Most require money up front at lease signing, but if you're short on cash, it's $20-$30 more per month for every $1000 you defer.
The cheapest promotional lease deals are in the $175 range, generally 36 months, 12K miles per year, and require some down payment and first month's payment.
