Steps to Volkswagen Leasing

The first part of Volkswagen leasing is making sure that leasing is the right choice for your budget and your lifestyle in Kalkaska. While many drivers like the flexibility and lower commitment of leasing, others prefer the benefits that come with owning their Volkswagen outright. Once you’ve taken a deeper look at leasing vs. financing and choose to lease, here are the steps to obtaining a Volkswagen lease:

  1. Check your credit score to ensure that you qualify for a lease
  2. Decide how much of a down payment you can make and how much you can pay monthly
  3. Test drive different vehicles before choosing the right one for you
  4. Consider your driving habits and pick a mileage cap that makes sense
  5. Ask us about our current Volkswagen lease deals to get the best possible price
  6. Work with our finance team to create the Volkswagen lease deal and sign off on it

That’s all it takes to get a Volkswagen Atlas deal or Volkswagen Jetta deal!

More Volkswagen Leasing Information

The biggest difference between buying a VW Atlas and getting a Volkswagen Jetta lease deal is you’ll return the Jetta at the end of the lease term. A 36-month lease is the most-common available lease term, but you can also get a 24-month Volkswagen Atlas lease deal. In addition to Volkswagen leasing terms, here’s what else Lake City drivers need to know about the financial aspects of Volkswagen leasing:

  • Residual Value: This is the percentage of your leased car’s expected value after time has passed. The lost residual value is what you’re actually paying when you lease.
  • Money Factor: This is another term for interest rate, though it’s not usually expressed as a percentage. The higher the money factor, the greater the interest paid.
  • Mileage Limits: Leases typically come with mileage limits to mitigate depreciation. It’s important to do the math and understand how much you typically drive, as you will need to pay fees if you exceed the mileage limit on your lease agreement.
