A High-mileage Driver Can Still Lease

Most drivers who go down the long, winding road occasionally by over speeding are easily put off by leasing; their reason, "No way is any leasing company milking me out of my pocket." However, unknowingly, they have options to avail of a lease even if merely to test if it would somehow fit their lifestyle, considering it's cheaper. We have come up with three work-around techniques for any fast and furious driver to use in getting around excess mileage issues.

Manipulating the lease deal is not prohibited; it’s an option. If you, in all intents and purposes, want to buy out your leased car at the end of the contract, then go for a low-mileage car cause it’s relatively cheaper. By then you won’t have to pay for the excess mileage at lease end since you’re buying it anyway. Cunning? Nah, I’d call it initiative.

Go for other parts of the lease where savings is a premium. Any leased car with high mileage means low resale value, which upsets your leasing company. These companies usually look for other means to offset the high mileage and as eye-candy for possible buyers. You can take advantage of this.  Occasionally, also, a low purchase price is set on the leased car that the lessee can benefit from, as stated above.

When I say you use diesel on your engine, it usually paints up a picture of muck, eardrum strain, bad performance, well, think again ’cause diesel has changed over the years. In fact it is highly advisable for high-mileage drivers because of its relatively lower cost. It can also give you 30-40% more mileage than petrol.

Mileage has always been a pain in the neck for most drivers, but there sure is a way to go around it. So drive on, fast!

What Our customers are saying

The lease rate I got by calling the dealer was $67 higher than the rate I got from Car Leasing Secrets. It’s all about the local competition. So happy with my Benz!

This is probably the easiest way to get quotes and compare them. I got one from each dealer in my city. One of them was surprisingly low. The quotes are free. No worries there.

What a great way to shop around! I wanted a Corolla. There’s only one Toyota dealership in my city but I got a quote for a Honda Civic and decided to go with that one because I got such a good offer.
