Where to Find the Best Leases

Finding the best car lease is like open pit mining; half of your life (peace of mind) is at risk. Most car buyers ask the same question: Which is better: car buying or leasing? or Help! I can't find a good car to lease! (Most of the time it's in broken English. Check YahooAnswers.)

So to set things straight for all lessees and buyers at that, let me list down the sources you need to look into for that most sought-after yet elusive great car lease.

Prime but not primitive sources of leasing info are radio, newspaper, TV ads, and of course—the Net. Car manufacturers are fond of giving special leases for limited offer, not to mention subsidized or subvented leases. These companies usually offer these through discounting the price, boosting residual value, or by lowering interest rates. The thing is, you should work harder on your credit score; they only take in those that have 700+.

Next in line for the best car lease source are pricing or auto referral services in the Net. All you need to do is tell them the car you want and they can give a list of the best purchases or leases from the dealers who have agreed to your set price; the best part is, they will call you, not the head-splitting other way around. Another source, CarsDirect, when you like their offer lets you go to their dealership, sign the papers, and drive away, no sweat!

Top 3 among the sources is the nondealer lease sources. This simply means independent car lease companies. They may not be at par with car dealers' promotional deals, but they can be good at hard-to-find, high-priced luxury cars.
If this is not a guarantee that you will end up with your most-coveted car lease, then you might as well sue us for legwork.

What Our customers are saying

The lease rate I got by calling the dealer was $67 higher than the rate I got from Car Leasing Secrets. It’s all about the local competition. So happy with my Benz!

This is probably the easiest way to get quotes and compare them. I got one from each dealer in my city. One of them was surprisingly low. The quotes are free. No worries there.

What a great way to shop around! I wanted a Corolla. There’s only one Toyota dealership in my city but I got a quote for a Honda Civic and decided to go with that one because I got such a good offer.
