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

Many of our customers ask us, “is it easier to lease a car with bad credit?” Because a new car lease requires a credit check, it’s usually easier to lease with good credit. It results in lower monthly payments and a lower security deposit. Bad credit may require a higher deposit and higher monthly payments. However, you’ll still have to pay less than if you take out a car loan to buy a car. Furthermore, you’re more likely to be approved for a lease plan than a finance plan, so in that sense, it is easier!
