Can I lease a certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz?

Lease a CPO Mercedes-Benz in Salisbury, MD

There are many options these days for obtaining a vehicle. Not only is straightforward purchasing still a possibility, but one can also finance or lease. On top of this, one can choose whether to buy used, new, or Certified Pre-Owned.

There are benefits and negatives to every option. But one intriguing combination is that of leasing and used, or leasing and CPO. Is it possible to lease a certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz model?

Yes, it is possible to lease a Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz, but not all dealerships allow this. To inquire if we are currently offering any CPO Mercedes-Benz models for lease at Mercedes-Benz of Salisbury, contact us today. Don’t be afraid to ask the manager you speak with to check with a higher-up to confirm whether or not a CPO lease is on the table. Sometimes, employees are not aware of current lease offers.

What are the benefits of leasing a certified pre-owned Mercedes-Benz?

Leasing a certified pre-owned vehicle is a great way for customers to save money for whatever purpose they’d like to use it for, or to spend that money to afford a nicer car than they could otherwise.

Many consumers are unaware that the possibility of leasing a used vehicle exists. Doing so is a good way to increase one’s savings.

What used vehicles can be leased?

Generally, used car leases can be performed on vehicles that are less than four years old and have fewer than 48,000 miles on them.

What is the structure of a lease on a used car?

Used vehicle leases follow the same basic structure as new leases. First, the lender determines the vehicle’s residual value, and then calculates the payment amount based on the difference between sales price and residual value. These values we reference vary, as not all vehicles depreciate at the same rate.

The lease is then assigned a money factor, which is basically the interest rate. This factor tends to be higher on used car leases than on new car leases, just as interest rates tend to be higher on loans for used cars than new. However, when the lower sales price and lower rate of depreciation are taken into account, the overall payment amount should still be lower.

Can a leased used vehicle be purchased after the lease period is over?

Yes. Just as with a new vehicle lease, a leased used vehicle can be purchased at the end of the lease period if desired.

Two human hands perform a check of the amount of engine oil using a dipstick.

What’s the proper way to check your oil to get an accurate reading?

The oil, as most know, is the lifeblood of the engine. Without proper oil, a vehicle simply will not last long. With this in mind, it’s important to check your ride’s oil level periodically.

Unfortunately, a variety of conflicting information is available on what is truly the proper way to check one’s oil. Today, we’re going to present to you our own view on the matter. The following is how we believe you should check your oil in order to receive an accurate reading.

How to Check Your Engine Oil

  • Step Zero: Have your car parked on a level surface. Wait long enough to cool your engine. It’s generally recommended that one’s engine be cold when performing an oil check. However, many modern vehicles are calibrated so that the dipstick will read correctly even with a warm engine, so this may not be necessary.
  • Step One: Locate the dipstick under the hood. It should be on top of your oil tank. Typically, it’s topped with a bright yellow ring.
  • Step Two: Pull the dipstick out and wipe it off with a towel or rag. This first look will give you a hint at what your oil level may be, but don’t take it too seriously. The oil is likely splashed all over due to the engine having been running.
  • Step Three: Reinsert the dipstick in the tank. Push it all the way in.
  • Step Four: Pull the stick out again and check the oil on the end. Look for the markings that indicate oil fill levels. These are usually designated by a dot or a line. Ideally, your oil level should be at or near the top marking.
  • Step Five: In addition to checking the oil level, make sure the oil is nice and clean. If the oil is grimy, black, thick, gritty, milky, or some other similar adjective, it’s probably time to get it changed. Healthy oil is light-colored and transparent.
    • Also, check that the dipstick is nice and clean. If the dipstick is discolored or dark, it means that the car hasn’t had regular oil changes.
  • Step Six: For best practice, wipe the stick off and check it a second time. Again, ensure the oil is right at the full mark.

How often should you check your oil?

We recommend checking your oil once per month. For a specific oil change interval recommendation, consult your owner’s manual. If you don’t have the physical manual, it can likely be located online via a Google search.

Oil changes are just one of the many services available at Pohanka Mercedes-Benz.
