A YES! Studio Motors only offers lease specials and finance deals on brand new vehicles. Many times, you can lease a brand new car for a lower monthly payment then a used vehicle.


QHow Does Studio Motors Offer Such Low Payments?

A Low Overhead, Wholesale Pricing, Strong Buying Power. A generic new car dealership has very high overhead. High rent, high payroll, high advertising costs, and high sales commissions, which in return, yield high monthly payments. Studio Motors does not. We get the majority of our vehicles at wholesale pricing and pass the savings to our clients. The majority of the vehicles we sell and lease are BELOW dealer invoice! And since we work with every make and model of vehicle on the market, we have fleet directors for every brand of car which we hold long standing and strong relationships with. With all these factors combined, Studio Motors Auto Brokers can get you some surprisingly low monthly payments.

QWho Do I Make My Monthly Payments To?

A Your payments are made to the bank which approved your lease with the best terms possible. Most of the time, the bank is the same as the brand. For example, most BMW leases are through BMW Financial Services, Lexus leases are through Lexus Financial Services. There are times when a third party bank offers a much better payment for a specific model so we will use that bank instead. For example, US Bank and Bank of the West typically offer much more better lease programs for the Toyota Tundra, so in that case we would use one of those banks and save you more money. Either way, your payments are made to the best possible lender for your specific car. You do not make payments to Studio Motors.


QDo I have to go to the DMV to register my vehicle?

A NO. We handle all DMV paperwork so you don’t have to! Your new car will get licensed and registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles for you and you will automatically receive your license plates and stickers in the mail.


QCan I pet Chewie, the Studio Motors Yorkie, when I come to pick up my car?

A Chewie, short for Chewbacca, is a very important member of our team at Studio Motors. If he is not busy with paperwork and making sure the mailman is doing his job right, you can definitely hang out with him and pet him!
