Leasing is certainly a different process than buying. But it’s not a complicated one when you choose to work with Jay Hatfield Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM. After reading our brief overview on the simple rules, restrictions, and return policy for a vehicle lease below, we have a feeling you’ll be coming by our dealership for a test drive soon.

If you find yourself wanting a hot new vehicle like the 2019 Jeep Cherokee, but you’re concerned about the cost of your monthly payment, you’ll be happy to hear that the cost of leasing is often times lower than if you were to finance the same vehicle. Additionally, it’s a low commitment decision. If you no longer want that model a couple years down the road, you can upgrade to something else when your lease is up.

Some things you’ll want to keep in mind for a lease are that you’ll likely need full coverage insurance (which many lenders require for a new vehicle anyway), and there will be a yearly mileage limit. A wear-and-tear condition is also included, and you’ll need to bring your model to a trusted dealership like ours for any routine maintenance, such as oil changes, during your contract.

When the lease agreement is up, you’ll have three easy options:

  • Buy the model you currently drive
  • Lease another model from our inventory
  • Return it and walk away

Leasing is a win-win situation for anyone looking to test the waters as a new car owner. You can come to our dealership near Fort Scott, KS anytime and we’d happily talk more about leases. You are also more than welcome to test drive any of our new models, like the 2018 RAM 1500. We look forward to working with you on a vehicle lease today.
