Can You Lease a Car with Bad Credit?

The short answer is yes, and you’re not alone! Here at Hendrick Chevrolet Monroe we hear, “Can I lease a car with bad credit?” all the time from Matthews drivers who’ve had trouble securing financing in the past.

Leasing a car with bad credit without giving up on your goals is entirely possible. Almost all leases will require a credit check, but where there’s a will, there’s a way! Keep reading to find out more about the process of leasing a car when you have bad credit, and don’t hesitate to reach out to our finance team if you’d like to discuss your options in detail.

Is it Easier to Lease a Car With Bad Credit?

If you’ve had trouble getting financing from Waxhaw-area lenders in the past or you’re worried your credit score will affect your interest rate, you may wonder: Is it easier to lease a car with bad credit, instead of buying one?

Since you have to stay within mileage limits and refrain from making modifications to the vehicle during the time you’re leasing it, leasing may very well be more accessible than financing. That’s because it generally presents a lower risk for the lessor, but one thing to keep in mind is that your insurance rate may be a little higher when leasing. However, this is often offset by the fact that monthly lease payments are more affordable than monthly loan payments.

How to Lease a New Car with Bad Credit: Tips and Tricks

It can be a nerve-wracking process to take out an auto loan in Weddington. Trying to lease a new car with bad credit isn’t that different. We’ve written out some tips here that could increase your chances for approval:

  • Know your credit score, and take steps to improve it: Improving your credit is possible, even if you’re in a tough financial situation. Start by paying down outstanding balances, and be ready to show off the work you’ve done.
  • Save up for a larger down payment: If you can afford to pay more upfront when you make the down payment, you’re definitely going to have a higher chance of approval. That’s true with leasing and financing.
  • Show proof of income: If you show them you have the ability to pay, the dealership is more likely to approve you.
  • Ask about used car leases: Used car leases aren’t always advertised. Most dealerships will be willing to lease used or certified pre-owned vehicles to the right driver.
