Worst Cars to Lease Right Now

On this web site, I usually highlight the best deals available, but it's also important to know which models to avoid. That's why this week I compiled advertised lease deals from around the country to find out which vehicles and locations offer the worst "bang for your buck" lease deals.

The 2023 Jaguar F-Pace now stands out as the worst advertised bang for your buck deal in the country this month - $1,207 per month with zero down on a vehicle with MSRP of $62,975. That's equivalent to getting only $52 worth of MSRP for each dollar you pay per month. The best lease deals will give you more than twice the bang for the buck.

Each lease deal below is calculated with zero down payment, 36 month 12K annual miles (10K for luxury vehicles) so you can compare apples to apples. Note that payments don't include tax, title, and other fees and the deals may only be available in that particular region.

If you want good lease deals, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to quickly get an idea of what you should be paying.

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).
Select Vehicle to Get Local Pricing

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.
