Leasing a Ford
Aurora Ford Hay River has quite a few leasing options on hand, as well as Ford's Red Carpet leasing. Each choice has a selection of kilometer options and lease-end choices. Enjoy all the benefits exclusive to leasing!
It's always a good idea to plan ahead for when your lease ends, so you're not waiting for your next vehicle. There are three possibilities. Please refer to your Lease-End Agreement for complete details.
- Buy your lease vehicle
- Purchase or lease a new Ford
- Return your lease vehicle to Aurora Ford Hay River
Remember to check your lease vehicle for excess wear and tear. If you leased directly from Ford, refer to the wear and tear guidelines mailed to you prior to lease-end or look at the guidelines, linked below. On that page, you'll find a link to the wear and tear checklist.
Does leasing or financing affect insurance rates?
Some of our customers ask: “Is insurance more expensive if I lease a car?” Quite simply, the answer is no. Let's look at how insurance rates are calculated.
How is car insurance calculated?
Here is how insurance rates are calculated in Canada. They are based on where you live, how you drive, and the make, model, and age of your vehicle. How you pay for your car doesn't determine your insurance rates. Be sure to let your insurance company know you’re leasing.
Financial interest in the vehicle
A lender has a financial interest in your vehicle. This means that the name of the financing company or the lease company should be on your insurance policy so that the lender's investment is protected.
What happens if I have an accident?
A finance or leasing company will be paid first if there is an accident or the car is written off. Next, you will receive a payment if your car is worth more than what is owed to the lender. If you do not have equity in the vehicle and owe more than it is worth, gap insurance will cover the outstanding amount. Your insurance agent can give you full details.
Your vehicle insurance agent is the best person to explain what your policy covers, along with the fine print. If you change vehicles or decide to lease instead of financing, contact your insurance company as soon as possible.

What should I bring to my finance appointment?
All buyers should bring a valid government-issued driver's license, current pay stub or void cheque. Depending on the specifics of your purchase, you may be required to bring additional information. For a complete list of what you'll need, call us ahead of time and speak with a sales consultant.
Will I be approved?
Four main factors determine whether you get approved for a car loan. The new or pre-used vehicle's cost, age, and mileage. Your employment history, residence, and income. Your credit history, which is the information in your credit file. A down payment, which can be the total of cash and trade equity. Also, try to provide as large of a down payment as you can.
How are my car payments calculated?
Once you're approved for a car loan, three factors will affect your monthly payment (in order of importance): Amount financed; term or length of contract; and Annual Percentage Rate (APR). We offer competitive rates from a variety of finance companies to fit nearly every budget and credit profile. You can learn more about your personal finance options at any Go Auto dealership.
How do I budget for my car payments?
Almost all financial advisors say not to spend more than 15% of your gross monthly income on your car payment. For example, if you make $5,000 a month then pay no more than $750 on your car payment.
What is my credit score?
Your credit score is a number that helps financial institutions predict the risk associated with your purchase of a car, house, use of a credit card, or any other financial products, etc. A credit score ranges from about 350 to 850 and is used to forecast if you will pay your bills on time. In general, the higher your credit score, the more likely you are to get approved for a car loan. The systems that generate your credit score look at your credit report and take several factors into account when determining your credit score, including, for instance, your payment history, and the number of inquiries made on your credit report.
