Leasing can be a smart move for a lot of people. However, you have to be careful to make sure you’re one of them before you sign a lease contract. The most attractive aspect of leasing is the ability it affords you to drive a nicer car than you’d otherwise be capable of affording. But you have to be careful to get into the lease the right way to derive the fullest benefit. Toward that end, here are five mistakes to avoid when leasing a car. Underestimating Mileage One of the ways leasing companies protect their investment is by ensuring you keep the mileage within reason on the car. This enables the car to bring a better price when it’s liquidated to retrieve the rest of their capital. Typical leases on mainstream cars run 12,000 miles per year. Luxury cars tend to cap you at 10,000 and some specialty cars like exotic sports cars will try to limit you to as few as 6,000 miles annually. If you go over, you’ll be expected to pay as much as $.30 per mile, which can easily … [Read More...]
