What exactly can you expect when you lease a Chevrolet? In a sense, leasing a car is similar to buying one. You do research and compare models online, go into the dealership, and test drive the models you like to see which one really is perfect for you.

Then, you decide on the color, trim level, and options you want for your car, truck, or SUV, and discuss financing. On the other hand, there are some differences between buying and leasing a car, and most of them occur at the close of the lease period. When you are done with your lease, you have to determine whether to buy your car outright, or trade it in and start a a new lease.

This choice is up to you, but many people enjoy trading their car in for a new vehicle every three years. If you really like your car and want to buy it at the close of your lease, you will need to contact us to get a payoff quote and instructions for purchasing your car.

Leasing a car is less expensive than purchasing one, so leasing might make sense if you are trying to save money. Even if you do not have an excellent credit score, you might still need a new car.

Fortunately, there are ways to lease a vehicle with bad credit, and there are steps along the way that will actually help with improving your credit. Here is a short primer to car leases for people with bad credit.

First, if possible, it's a good idea to tune up your credit score before applying for a lease. Your credit score is the most important thing that car dealers look at when you apply for a lease, so do what you can to improve yours before trying to buy a car. 

You may also want to save up some money for a down payment, because with a larger down payment on the lease you could qualify for a reduced interest rate.



If you are planning to trade in your car and start a new lease, you will need to check your vehicle for any damage, and set up an on-site inspection.

You should take a close look at the interior and exterior of your car (including tires and wheels), and ensure the car is in normal working order.

During your review and our inspection, we'll all be looking for normal wear and tear, which you're not responsible for, and excessive wear, which will require an additional fee. Also note that you may have to pay a fee for any remaining payments on your lease if you trade in your car before the lease term is over, and you may have excess mileage charges and additional state fees.
