Car Leasing FAQ | Galesburg, IL


Leasing a new Nissan from Galesburg Nissan in Galesburg, Illinois, puts you in the driver’s seat of an incredible vehicle loaded with innovative tech, premium materials, and comfort features for you and your crew. The Nissan lineup is diverse, too, giving you options from small to big, including sedans, SUVs, and trucks, as well as the LEAF, an all-electric model. Leasing offers a more affordable way to realize your driving dreams while respecting your budget. Here are some highlights about leasing from Galesburg Nissan.

What are the benefits of leasing?


Leasing allows you to drive a new car at a much more affordable price than buying new. You are essentially “renting” the vehicle for a set amount of time and miles, so you only paying for that duration as opposed to covering the full price of the vehicle over time. Your monthly loan payment will be lower, if needed at all, and your down payment is less, too, compared to what you had put down when purchasing a new car. Another savings bonus is dodging the hefty hit of depreciation that new car buyers incur. Taxes and fees are less when leasing, too. You can bet that maintenance costs will be less or free, too, thanks to warranty coverage and the newness of the vehicle during the duration of your lease.

Who owns the car?

The lender you use to finance your leased vehicle owns the car.

What happens if I exceed the mileage?

When you sign the lease, you agree to specific terms. Those terms are typically around lease term or length of lease and the amount of miles you are allowed to drive. We understand that things happen, and you may exceed the mileage set in your contract. If you do exceed the mileage, you will have to pay a fee when your lease is up and you return your vehicle to Galesburg Nissan.

Are leases covered by warranty?

Depending on how long your lease is, most likely many (if not all) maintenance tasks, recalls, and repairs will be covered by the manufacturer warranty. Since you are driving your vehicle at the height of its performance, maintenance tasks should be minimal. But, it is always important to read the fine print on your warranty coverage so you take the steps necessary to keep it valid. If you have any questions about maintenance or your vehicle’s coverage, do not hesitate to reach out to the experts at Galesburg Nissan!

Can I buy extra miles?

If you think you need more miles for your lease, you can surely buy them! We want you to get the most out of your lease and your driving experience, so our finance experts will work out the details with you.

What happens at the end of my lease?

When your lease is close to its expiration, there are several things to consider for your driving future. You can simply return the leased vehicle to Galesburg Nissan and choose a new vehicle to lease. If your driving needs change, like you need an SUV to support your growing family or a capable truck to handle rugged pursuits or work projects, you can upgrade to the vehicle that supports your current needs. If you love the vehicle you have been leasing, you can continue the relationship by purchasing the vehicle from us. If you no longer need a vehicle, you can simply return the leased vehicle, and when you need a car down the road, visit us again so we can set you up in a lease or purchase agreement.
