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

Just like taking out a car loan, leases require a credit check, and in both cases, it's often considered easier to finance or lease with good credit. That's because a strong credit score leads to lower payments, lower security deposits, and better lease terms overall. Leasing with bad credit often requires a higher deposit and higher monthly payments. Still, no matter your credit, you will pay less to take out a car loan than to buy a car in the Mascoutah area.
