What is a car micro lease?
It’s a way to access a car without the commitment of a typical long-term lease or purchase, so your car can change as your needs do.
When you get a micro lease with us—the cars you see are all available now—you’ll be able to choose:
- The exact car you want, from the brands you love
- How long you’d like to get a car for (6 or 12 months)
- How many miles you’d like to drive each month (800, 1000, or 1200 miles)
- The amount of your upfront payment
Your micro lease comes with lots of good stuff like a limited warranty and maintenance plan. Additionally, 24/7 roadside assistance is offered by the manufacturer, and we'll take care of registering your vehicle, so you don't need to make a trip to the DMV.
How does it work?
Micro leasing is simple. Here’s how it works:
Browse cars. You’ll be able to shop from a great selection of new vehicles. Everything you see is available now, so there’s no wait time.
Click “Get Started” on a vehicle to check your monthly payment. We’ll run a soft credit pull to find your prequalified monthly micro lease budget. This will help you shop more confidently for cars that are in your price range.
Set your terms. Tell us how long you want to keep your car—6 or 12 months—and how many miles you’ll need each month—800, 1,000, or 1,200.
Start your Micro Lease. Everything you need to do to set up your micro lease from verifying your financial information to signing your micro lease agreement and uploading your insurance happens online.
Drive. You’ll grab the keys from an AutoNation store and hit the road.
Why should I get a micro lease?
Sometimes, you need a car without the commitment of a traditional 36-month lease or purchase because your vehicle needs may quickly change, and long-term rentals can be expensive. You might have a growing family, want to try before you buy, or maybe you just love driving the latest and greatest.
An AutoNation Mobility micro lease offers the freedom to choose a car you'll enjoy driving at a transparent price, with more flexible terms and a seamless digital experience.

What preventative safety measures does AutoNation take in response to the COVID-19 situation?
Every vehicle we sell, lease and service is sanitized with PrecisionCare Powered by Clorox®, an EPA-approved disinfectant that kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. This bleach-free treatment is safe to use inside your vehicle and can be applied in as little as 30 minutes.
How is this different than a traditional lease, purchase, or long-term rental?
Compared to a traditional lease or purchase, an AutoNation Mobility car micro lease offers the flexibility of a shorter commitment that you get to choose (6 or 12 months), at prices that are more comparable to the monthly cost of a lease. Because you’re not purchasing, you’re not taking on any of the typical risks of owning a car like depreciation.
