How To Return Your Leased Car At The End Of The Lease

Are you nearing the end of the lease on your Mazda car or SUV? Get prepared for the turn-in day by doing the following:

Wait for communication from the dealership

We will typically reach out to let you know that you are approaching the end of your lease about 90 days before the actual lease return date. At that time, we should schedule your final inspection, where we will check the vehicle over for any signs of excessive wear and tear.

Schedule repairs

If you are aware of any issues with the vehicle that you have caused that you would like to fix independently (rather than pay to have us fix it upon turning the vehicle in), arrange to have those completed before the lease inspection. Most dealerships and companies excuse normal wear and tear and will only be looking for noticeable and sizable tears, stains, cracks, scratches, dings, and dents.

Bring everything you received when you leased the vehicle

When you return the leased vehicle to the dealership, be sure to bring back all the components, including extra keys, cargo covers, floor mats, spare tires, etc. If there was anything in your vehicle that you took out, it should be returned to its proper spot before arriving at the dealership. Likewise, take all of your personal belongings out of the vehicle before the drop off to make the process faster.

Determine what you want to do next

If you have gravely exceeded the mileage limits and are staring down an excessive fee, you should consider whether you just want to purchase the vehicle. Similarly, if you know you will be paying a lot for excessive wear and tear, it may make more sense to purchase the vehicle. And of course, if you’ve fallen in love with the vehicle over the duration of the lease, you can certainly buy it. Otherwise, have an idea of what you would like to do next, whether it’s leasing another vehicle or buying one instead.
