Buying Formerly Leased Cars

When looking for a used car, look into "leased" cars. We bought one that was 1 year old, with only 2,300 miles! It went from "covered" home to "covered" work! We're in the desert so covered is important.

My daughter purchased a formerly leased car and was very pleased for a long time until the engine conked out. Although she had been religious about changing oil and servicing, it seems the person who h ad leased it never changed the oil. Buying a formerly leased car can be a nightmare unless you have proof of the maintainance performed on it while it was leased.

A good idea. Just be sure that you are still aware that this car is, in fact, still considered "used" and you should treat it as such. Be sure you know if it had ever been in an accident or had any unusual repairs done on it (dealerships have their own body shops and may have record of it if they did the repairs) and be sure you know what the remaining warranty is on it.


My daughter had a lease and it needed undercarriage repairs that were NOT done at the dealership.
