How to Lease a Lexus ES
If you are starting to fall in love with the Lexus ES, we do not blame you! The Lexus ES is an incredible luxury sport sedan that offers driving enthusiasts superior handling, ultimate comfort, and high performance. If you think you would love a Lexus ES for yourself, but just aren’t sure, we suggest leasing one through Tom Wood Lexus. Think of a lease as an extended test drive. At the end of the lease period, you can always decide to purchase, but leasing gives you the flexibility and ability to “no” and walk away if you decide the car just isn’t for you.
To get started with the lease process is really simple. First, we need to know you have approved credit. We make this part super easy! We love chatting with people in person, so you can come to our dealership and fill out a credit application, or if you prefer, you can fill one out online on our website. The application is not too tedious, and we usually have results pretty quickly. Once we have this on file, we can begin talking about the next steps.
If you have settled on the Lexus ES for your lease, we are super excited for you! Let’s say your credit came back in excellent shape, this is the time when we need a few things from you. Leases do not require a down payment, since the car isn’t actually owned by you. We do require a deposit, however. This deposit covers your first month’s payment as well as fees associated with the lease. For these details, you can read up on them on our website or on the Lexus website. This is typically between $1500 and $3000. Once your credit is approved and we have your deposit, we go through the terms and conditions of the lease.
When you lease, we want you to be comfortable in the vehicle, as it will be your car for the next 2-3 years. However, since the institution is who owns the vehicle, you need to make sure you take care of it. We don’t mind a little wear and tear, but any damage done to the vehicle will be your responsibility at the end of the lease period. You will also be driving a Lexus, so we are confident you will want to treat this car like your own child.
