The Top 10 Best Lease Deals in May
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.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe 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 NetworkSelect 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 / CarsDirectTrueCar, 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.
