1. Schedule an Inspection
About 90 days before your lease ends, you’ll want to schedule an inspection of your car. This should be done by an independent service center. You will receive notice beforehand, so you’ll know that you’re approaching the end.
2. Make Repairs
While you should be maintaining your car from the start, items can fall apart or get damaged. If the inspection notes any minor issues, get them fixed to avoid any potential charges.
3. Clean Out Your Car
Not only will your car look good, but cleaning your car also helps to ensure you don’t forget any of your belongings. Make sure that you take out any trash and remove personal items such as gloves, blankets, or anything you brought aboard. Also, delete any personal information logged in the on-board computer.
4. Plan What to Do With Your Car
During the 90-day period before returning the leased car, consider your next step. Would you like to keep the car? In that case, a finance manager can develop a loan to cover the remaining cost.
Would you prefer to upgrade to a newer version of the car you’ve been driving or another new model? That’s totally doable, too! Start looking through our new inventory.
In some cases, your circumstances may have changed. Maybe you need a larger car for a growing family or you’re moving out of the area. Whatever it is, we wish you well.
