Leasing a new car is always an option, but can you lease a used car in Corona? At many dealerships, the answer is yes. While not offered by all car manufacturers, many do allow used car leasing – and budget-minded shoppers can save a ton by opting for a pre-owned model. Find out everything you need to know about used car leasing with BMW of Murrieta, and start shopping today.

What is Used Car Leasing?

While you can lease a used car at some dealerships, generally speaking, you’ll only find certified pre-owned vehicles available. These vehicles have certain guarantees by the manufacturer, including low mileage and warranty coverage. So if you want to lease a used model, you’ll need to visit a franchised dealership like BMW of Murrieta. 

According to the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), the list of manufacturers which are said to offer CPO leasing includes Acura, Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, FIAT, Honda, Hyundai, INFINITI, Jeep, Kia, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, MINI, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, RAM, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo.

How Does Used Car Leasing Work?

Leasing a used vehicle is similar to leasing a new vehicle. Your monthly payments will be determined by the difference between the sale price of the vehicle and its estimated value at lease-end. But because used cars depreciate slowly, this difference is much smaller than it would be for a new model. That means your payments in Riverside will be lower, and you can save a lot in the process. 

Keep in mind that you’ll still need to follow the general leasing practices. This includes adhering to mileage limits and maintenance requirements, as well as returning your CPO to the dealership at the end of the lease.

Benefits of a Used Car Lease

  • Monthly Payment Amount: Pre-owned vehicles are more affordable than a new car, and so your monthly payment will also be more affordable.
  • Potential for Lease Buyout: A lease buyout can be more affordable for a used car, because your used car’s estimated value will be lower at lease-end when compared to a new vehicle.
  • Lower Insurance Rates: Since your insurance costs are partially based on your car’s overall value, the lower price point of your CPO lease might save you extra money on your insurance costs.
