Can You Lease a Used Car?

Man and Woman Signing Contract

Choosing to shop for a used car is a great way to upgrade your Kyle commute. With a late-model used car, truck, or SUV, you’ll enjoy many of the features offered on brand-new vehicles at a much more affordable price. Can you lease a used car? While used car leasing is available in the Regina area, it is typically only offered with certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles. That being said, the certified pre-owned programs of certain brands, including Ford, Buick, Chevrolet, Cadillac, and GMC, do not offer used vehicle leasing.

Used Car Leasing Details

The low monthly payment and the built-in flexibility of a lease can be mighty appealing, especially when offered with a used vehicle. Before deciding whether used car leasing is the right fit for your Saskatoon-area driving needs, consider the following:

  • Used vs. New Car Lease – While a used car lease will come with lower monthly payments than a new car lease, the usual lease restrictions still apply. For example, you’ll still have set mileage limits and will need to return the vehicle at the end of the lease.
  • Which Used Cars Can Be Leased? – As mentioned previously, a used car lease option is usually only offered for certified pre-owned vehicles. Note that used car lease prices are not always advertised, so you should contact the dealership to find out if it’s a possibility.
  • Can I Buy a Used Car After I Lease? – Just as with a new car lease, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase the vehicle after the lease term is completed. One of the benefits of purchasing a leased used car is that it will have a lower residual value, so you’ll pay less than you would if you opted for a lease buyout on a new car. 
  • Insurance for a Leased Used Car – Since insurance rates are partially determined by the value of the car, you will most likely pay less per month for insurance with a CPO lease.

There are some attractive benefits to leasing a used or certified pre-owned car, but you should remember that the maintenance costs on a pre-owned vehicle generally tend to be higher. To offset that, CPO vehicles include extended warranty coverage for replacement auto parts and routine maintenance services. Opting for a certified pre-owned vehicle gives you many of the benefits of buying or leasing a brand new car at a more budget-friendly used car price.
