How to Lease a Car

Leasing Stamp of Approval

Leasing a car is a popular way to enjoy a brand-new vehicle without a long-term commitment, but how does leasing a car work? Think of it like a rental that lasts for several years instead of several days. This gives you the flexibility to change cars frequently without the hassle of selling your old model. Learn how to lease a car with ease at Jaguar North Haven, and be sure to get in touch with us near  New Haven if you have any questions.

Getting Started: How Does Leasing a Car Work?

If leasing sounds like it might be right for you, then the next step is learning how to lease a car. Because you might know how it works in theory, but how does leasing a car work in practice? Here are some things to consider:

  • All leases require you to stay within a set mileage limit. When you sign your contract, you’ll work out a mileage limit that suits your driving habits in Wallingford. Be sure to calculate your average annual mileage, including everything from daily commutes to road trips, before you commit to a number.
  • Leasing a car is usually less expensive than financing a model you intend to purchase. If you’ve got your eyes set on a luxury ride like a Jaguar, then leasing can be a great way to try out different models and technology over the years. But, be sure to check out our offers and incentives. Financing at Jaguar North Haven can still be well within your budget.
  • During the lease term, you will be responsible for completing scheduled maintenance. Not only will you need to mind your mileage, but you’ll also be responsible for maintaining your vehicle throughout the lease contract. It’s important to keep the car in near-mint condition, which means taking a few annual trips to the service center.

What to Do at the End of Your Lease

Now you know how to lease a car, but what happens at the end of the contract? You can choose between the following options:

  • Return your leased car and pick out a new vehicle
  • Return your leased car and leave
  • Extend your current lease
  • Buy the vehicle that you’ve been leasing

If you choose to return the vehicle, you’ll get an inspection from the dealership. A staff member will certify your mileage, check for signs of damage, and make sure your maintenance records are on hand. You’ll then submit your lease paperwork and pay any remaining fees. That’s it!
