Why Should I Lease a Used Certified Pre-Owned Car?

We place each CPO through a rigorous vetting process, including a comprehensive inspection. It also means the vehicle you lease will fall under a maximum age and mileage limit.

Additionally, if anything is broken or worn out, our techs will replace the part using genuine OEM components. Leasing also provide several extra perks, including:

Lower Monthly Payments

When leasing a car, the bulk of your payments go towards the vehicle’s annual depreciation. A car that’s a few years old tends to depreciate slower than a brand-new one. This means you can end up paying less each month.

Of course, your payment will also depend on the type of vehicle you lease, so make sure you have a clear budget in mind.


A typical leasing period lasts anywhere between 24 to 48 months. Once this period ends, drivers have the ability to renew, return the vehicle, or upgrade to a different one.

This makes a used car lease attractive to those who don’t like being tied to a long-term contract. It also benefits anyone who enjoys staying up to date on the latest auto trends and innovations.

If at the end of your lease you decide to keep your vehicle forever, our finance center can adjust your terms so you can work towards actually owning it.

Peace of Mind

If the used car you want is on the newer side, it might be covered under its original warranty. If you lease a certified pre-owned this feature is all but a guarantee.

A warranty allows you to enjoy your used car lease without worry of a serious breakdown or repair. It can also provide additional benefits like travel/rental car reimbursement, and more!
