Can I Lease a Car with Bad Credit?

Man's Hand Reviewing Car Loan
Wondering if you can lease a new car with bad credit? Weir Canyon Honda is here to help. Since the car lease process requires a credit check, a good credit score can often get you lower monthly payments. That being said, a lease can be a good option for Yorba Linda-area customers with bad credit. Learn more about leasing a car when you have bad credit in this guide from our finance team.

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

As we mentioned above, a new car lease requires a credit check, and it’s usually easier to lease when you have a good credit rating. Your good credit score will often mean lower monthly payments and a lower security deposit. With a bad credit score, you can expect a higher deposit and higher monthly payments. However, by choosing to lease a car, you’ll pay less than if you take out a car loan to buy a car.

Tips for Lower Lease Payments with Bad Credit

Even with bad credit, customers from Tustin and beyond are able to find a great lease deal at Weir Canyon Honda. Here are some tips to help you get the best deal:

  • Find a car within your budget to lease. Contact us to 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 can prepay for the first few months, it could result in better lease terms.
  • Bring several months of pay stubs as proof of income. This is the best way to show that you can afford the lease you’re looking for.
