A car lessee is an individual or organization that has taken out a lease on a vehicle from another party, usually a dealership or leasing company. The lessee pays the lessor an agreed-upon amount in exchange for the right to use the vehicle for a predetermined period of time. The terms and conditions of the lease agreement are typically outlined in a contract that is signed by both parties. A car lease may be used by individuals who wish to drive a new car without having to purchase it outright, as well as by businesses that need vehicles for their operations but do not have the financial resources to purchase them.


  1. Lower costs: Leasing a car is often more affordable than buying one, as you don’t have to pay the full purchase price up front and monthly payments are generally lower.
  2. Flexibility: With leasing, you can choose from a variety of makes and models without having to worry about reselling the car later on. This allows for greater flexibility in terms of what type of car you want to drive.
  3. Warranty: Most leased cars come with a manufacturer’s warranty, which means that you won’t be stuck paying for any major repairs or maintenance that needs to be done while you’re driving it.


  1. Mileage restrictions: Most lease agreements have mileage restrictions which mean that if you go over the agreed limit, then you will have to pay extra charges when returning the car at the end of your lease period.
  2. Early termination fees: If you decide to terminate your lease before it has come to an end then you will likely be subject to early termination fees which can be quite expensive depending on how far along into the lease term you are.
  3. Lack of ownership: When leasing a car, it is important to remember that it isn’t really yours and so if anything goes wrong with it, then it isn’t necessarily your responsibility – unless specified in the agreement – so this could potentially leave you out of pocket if something does go wrong.
