Trying to lease a new Acura car, but you have bad credit? Rallye Acura is here to help! While you probably know that car leases require a credit check, and then excellent credit helps, leasing is a good option for Manhasset drivers who do not have strong credit. Why is that? Leasing often comes with lower monthly payments than financing. Stop by Rallye Acura to learn more today!

Tips for Lower Lease Payments with Bad Credit

Even with bad credit, Glen Cove drivers will be able to find a great lease deal. Check out our tips for getting the best prices:

  • 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.
  • 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.

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

When looking at a new Acura model, Glen Cove drivers will find it easier to get a lease with good credit. Usually, having great credit will mean lower monthly payments as well as a lower security deposit. Bad credit, however, can require a higher deposit and a higher monthly payment. However, you will still have less to pay than if you were to buy.
