Top 10 Lease Deals with the Lowest Monthly Payment

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.

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.
