What is the highest mileage lease available?

A high-mileage lease is one that is written with a higher mileage limit to begin with—usually 18,000 to 20,000 miles. That way, the lessee can drive further per year without running up against those expensive over-the-limit per-mile fees. The catch is that you will make higher monthly lease payments.

Can you buy more mileage on a lease?

No. You cannot buy extra lease miles during a lease, only at the beginning. If you are already in a lease and see that you are already exceeding your allowance, there are a number of options. See our article, Over Mileage Car Lease for more details.

How much can you increase mileage on a lease?

Charges vary across leasing companies but typically range from around 3p to 30p per mile. They’re set up so that the cost is greater than what you would have paid by going for a higher-mileage upfront.

Can you negotiate lease mileage?

When you lease a car, you’re typically allowed to drive a certain number of miles throughout the course of your lease term. If you anticipate driving more than that, negotiate extra mileage upfront. It may be cheaper to pay for more miles now than pay the per-mile fee later.

Can you negotiate over mileage on a lease?

Some leases allow 15,000 miles, but more manufacturers are trimming the allowance to only 10,000 or 12,000 miles per year. If you think you’re likely to exceed the allowance, then negotiate for additional miles up front. This can save you a few cents per mile over the end-of-lease mileage charge.

What happens if I exceed my lease mileage?

Excess mileage Most leasing companies charge around 15 to 20 cents per mile over the amount allowed in the contract, commonly 12,000 miles per year. If you’re way over the allowed mileage and looking at a big penalty, you still have options. In most cases, the buyout price is close to the current market value price.

Is 10000 miles a year enough for a lease?

The vast majority of leases allow you to drive between 12,000 and 15,000 miles per year. Anything over that will result in large penalties when you turn the vehicle in at lease end. Some leases offer only 10,000 miles per year, in which case, you really need to be careful with the amount of driving you do.

Is driving 30000 miles a year a lot?

Cars don’t need rest and time isn’t kind to them. Continuous driving is the ideal state for the longevity (in terms of miles) of a car. 30,000 miles in one year should be better, not worse, than 30,000 miles spaced out over 2-3 years as would be more typical.

How can I avoid paying excess mileage?

With leasing, you don’t have any ownership rights to the car. You don’t normally earn equity when you lease, typically because what you owe on the car only catches up to its value at the end of a lease. This could be viewed as a waste of money by some, since you’re not gaining equity.

Is a high-mileage lease right for You?

If you decide to lease rather than buy a car, a high-mileage lease may be right for you when compared to a standard lease. Standard leases come with annual mileage limits, and if a lessee goes over the limit, they can expect to pay over-the-limit per-mile fees. High-mileage leases are written with higher mileage limits for lessees who drive more.

What is a low mileage lease?

A low-mileage lease is just as it sounds—your allowable miles are lower than those in most standard leases, but often for a much lower price than standard leases, as well. For example, your dealership may offer you a low-mileage lease of 10,000 miles per year, but your monthly payment would be also comparably low.
