2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

If you’re ready to upgrade your vehicle, but aren’t ready to commit to buying, you may be asking yourself: “Can I lease a used car?” Yes, you can. Used car leasing isn’t standard practice at every dealership, but there are places that offer used car leasing near Turlock.

Certified Pre-Owned Used Car Leasing

The majority of manufacturer’s who do used car leasing only allow certified pre-owned vehicles to be leased. This is because CPO models have to pass an intensive inspection and meet strict mileage and age restrictions. In order to drive a certified pre-owned vehicle, you’ll need to visit a franchised dealership, as only franchised dealerships offer CPO vehicles.

How Do You Lease a Used Car?

Leasing a used car isn’t much different than leasing a new car. For instance, monthly payments will still be determined by the difference between the sale price of the vehicle and its estimated value at lease-end. You’ll also still have mileage limits you need to stick to, and you’ll also need to return your vehicle at the end of your lease contract.
