Lease Deals Under $400 Per Month

One of the main reasons car shoppers tend to lease is due to the lower monthly payments. Given that fact, I looked at all the lease deals this week and calculated the ones that had the lowest monthly payments.

Note that these are not necessarily the "best bang for your buck" lease deals, but rather, ones that will cost you the least amount. Many lease deals advertise low monthly payments, but they trick you with large down payments.

In order to compare apples-to-apples, I calculated each lease deal with a $0 down payment. When you know which vehicle you want to lease, I recommend using the RydeShopper to get the best deal.

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.

Step 3 Complete my Checklist

Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
