Best 'Bang for Your Buck' Lease Deals

When comparing lease deals, you need to calculate the monthly payments with no money down in order to do a fair comparison.

Some lease deals advertise a low monthly rate, but require a large down payment up front.

It's easy to do the calculation - simply divide the down payment by the number of months in the lease term, and add that to the monthly payment.

For example, a 36 month lease deal for $200/month with $3,600 down is actually a $300/month lease deal if you put $0 down.

The following is a list of the 15 best car lease deals for January. Each one has been calculated with $0 down and ranked by 'best bang for your buck' - meaning we took into account the MSRP of the vehicle.

Vehicle Payment Term
1 2012 Honda Accord LX $250 35
2 2012 Honda CrossTour EX V6 $340 35
3 2012 Cadillac CTS Sedan $399 36

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
