Before you purchase your first vehicle in Canada, think about how you will use the vehicle and what you can afford. When you lease a new vehicle for the first time in Canada, you pay a monthly amount for a set amount of time and at the end of the term you can return the car or buy it outright for the price stated in your lease agreement.
Remember: you don’t actually own the car you lease; but are still responsible for all maintenance and repairs during the term of your lease, just as if you owned the vehicle.
Ask questions like,

- How many kilometres will you drive in a year?
