Pros and Cons of Extending a Car Lease


  • Extending a lease gives you more time to decide if you want to lease again or buy a vehicle, as well as more time to find your next vehicle.
  • Extending a lease gives you more time with a vehicle you’re already familiar with.
  • You’ll have more time to come up with a down payment for your next car.


  • The residual value of the car will stay the same, meaning if you want to buy the car later, you’ll still have to pay the residual value despite depreciation.
  • Extending the lease may incur fees and penalties.
  • The longer you drive the car, the more likely it will be that it will need repairs.
