Top Five Tips for Leasing a Toyota

  1. Know What You Are Getting Into: This might go without saying, for some, but it is imperative with any financing or leasing agreement that you know exactly which vehicle you would like to lease first, what your budget is, what leasing offers exist, and where there is the most wiggle room for negotiations. Buying and leasing a vehicle are both very important investments you will make in your life, so it is imperative that you have your facts straight, which is where our financing team can help.
  2. Know Yourself and Your Needs: We mean this in more than just the philosophical sense. Before you come to lease a new Toyota model, make sure you know your budget and your credit history as both are important factors in determining the lease agreement deal you qualify for. If you have a low credit score, it is advisable to build it up before leasing a vehicle as a low credit score might limit the deals and offers applicable to you and you might be required to submit a security deposit when you lease. Additionally, it is essential that you know what your needs are in your next car, truck, or SUV so that we can find you a new Toyota model to suit your needs as well as the desired miles you would like to be able to drive the vehicle.
  3. Do Not Be Afraid to Negotiate: if your credit and financial history are stellar, do not be afraid to negotiate with our sales team to find a better deal. Obviously, we ask that your offers are reasonable, but just because you are leasing a vehicle does not mean that you do not qualify for a better deal, you might be pleasantly surprised!
  4. Take Care of Your Vehicle: Another tip that should go without saying for most of you, but it is essential to take care of your leased vehicle as if it were your own possession, including having it maintained when required, and cleaning/waxing the vehicle before returning it to ensure that you are not held liable for any damages, outside of the normal wear and tear.
  5. GAP Insurance Is a Great Idea: GAP insurance, or guaranteed auto protection, is the difference between the total value of the vehicle you are leasing and the balanced still owed on the vehicle after payments have been made through financing or leasing. The biggest reason why GAP insurance is so important comes in the cases of accidents where the vehicle sustains heavier damages or is totaled. Accidents can happen, whether predicted or not, and GAP insurance helps minimize the amount of money that you might have to pay out-of-pocket should your vehicle ever get into an unforeseen accident.
