Comments Off on Experts Look into the Most Affordable New-Car Lease Deals for 2013

Leasing vehicles has turned into a popular practice. Consumers looking for reliable vehicles that are also affordable and safe, often prefer to lease their cars instead of purchasing them.

Easy terms and affordable monthly payments make leases more appealing to drivers who often prefer to drive new cars within short periods of time. With budget, safety and practicality in mind, experts decided to look into the newest leasing offers in order to find the best and most affordable lease options to consumers across the country.

Experts decided to make a list of the vehicles that can be leased for under $300 per month in order to provide consumers everywhere a good look into what each model offers and why they could be a good option for most motorists.

Average lease payments have been dropping in the last years. With the help of the Internet, any consumer can perform an extensive search into the many options available. While looking into the models for 2013, experts found at least 12 models that are available for less than $300 per month. Before making up their mind, consumers are urged to remember that experts only listed lease terms that have annual mileage limits, which is typically 12,000 miles per year. Some leases, experts say, allow even fewer annual miles.

Drivers who are tough on their vehicles are urged to avoid taking up leases since they must return the cars in excellent condition in order to avoid fees related to “excessive wear and tear”.

While the lowest advertised rates are only available to “well qualified lessees”, experts urge consumers with less than stellar credit to maybe leave the leasing idea behind altogether, since those with a poor credit will be required to pay higher financing charges.

According to experts, the BMW 3 Series is one of the models that is listed as one of the best vehicles available for under $300 per month. This particular model is available for monthly payments of $299 that last for 36 months. Consumers will be required to put $3,774 down in order to have the vehicle released. The Buick LaCrosse is available for $2,009 down and a term of 24 monthly payments of $239 each. According to experts, this model is a lot of car power for the money. Consumers looking for fuel efficiency and comfort will find what they are looking for with this one.

The Chevrolet Cruze is available for a 36-month-long term that requires $2,469 due at the signing and monthly payments of $149. Experts believe that this is a solid choice, particularly because of the competent performance this inexpensive vehicle offers. Other vehicles included in the list are the GMC Terrain, Honda Civic, Honda CR-V, Mini Cooper, Nissan 370Z, Nissan Leaf, Scion FR-S, Smart ForTwo, and Volkswagen Passat.
