Want to upgrade and make a smart financial choice on your next car in Arlington? Not a lot of people know about this, but the answer to the question “Can you lease a used car” is actually “Yes!” This vehicle financing option is often considered a “hidden gem” by car shoppers looking to save a little bit of money and still get a car close to a new car in terms of quality and features. There are a few things you should know before you consider used car leasing, however. Alexandria Volkswagen is here to tell you all about it, so sit tight and let us explain!

Used Car Leasing Facts

Most car manufacturers only allow Certified Pre-Owned vehicles to be leased. Generally, the CPO vehicles available for leasing will be relatively new in terms of model year as well as have a low mileage. This means that if you’re looking for used car leasing, you’ll almost always have to come to a franchised dealership such as Alexandria Volkswagen to get the job done. This is because only franchised dealerships offer CPO vehicles.

Volkswagen, thankfully, is one of the car makes that allows for used car leasing, so feel free to ask us at Alexandria Volkswagen how used car leasing can make your Washington DC drive better.

How Does Used Car Leasing Work?

We hope we’ve adequately answered your query “Can you lease a used car?” Now it’s time to explain how used car leasing works in Springfield. It’s fairly similar to leasing a new vehicle, where the difference between the sale price and the estimated price at lease-end will show you your monthly payment. This gives a hidden advantage: since used cars depreciate more slowly, this will generally lead to a lower monthly payment.

Why get a used car lease? These are compelling reasons:

  • A lower monthly payment
  • To make it easier to buy your car outright when the lease is up
  • Lower insurance rates by having a used car
