Happy woman with car keys
So, you’ve been thinking about getting a lease, but can you lease a new car with bad credit? Well, although excellent credit can ensure you get a lease, having some bad credit shouldn’t slow you down from getting behind the wheel of the new Nissan you’re looking for. Even if you lease with bad credit, you can still take advantage of lower monthly payments over financing. Discover how you can lease a car with bad credit near Grosse Pointe and St. Clair Shores today!

Is It Easier to Lease a Car with Bad Credit Than Good Credit?

Since new car leases require a credit check, many drivers with good credit will have a much easier time getting approved and have lower monthly payments as well as a lower security deposit. If you lease with bad credit, you’ll have to pay a higher deposit and higher monthly payments. Despite this, you’ll end up paying less every month than you would if you take out a car loan to buy a car.

Tips for Lower Lease Payments with Bad Credit

If you want to lease a new car with bad credit, be sure to keep these helpful tips in mind to ensure you get the lowest price possible with your lease payment:

  • Find a car within your budget to lease. Find out just how much you’ll have to pay on a monthly basis.
  • Check your credit score before you apply for a lease. That way you can have a better idea of your overall financial situation.
  • Make a larger down payment. If you prepay for the first few months, that might allow for better lease terms.
  • Bring several months of pay stubs as proof of income. That way we know you can afford the lease you’re looking for.
