Quick Answers...Auto


Am I limited to a certain number of miles per year when I lease a car?

Yes. Most auto leases limit the number of miles you can drive per year (often 12,000 to 15,000). You can generally negotiate a higher number, but you will be paying a higher monthly fee. If you exceed the number of allowed miles at the end of you lease, you will have to pay a penalty. Be sure to understand how the penalty is calculated. Ask questions!
