Items to Bring When Returning a Leased Car

The list of documents you need when returning a leased car in Canton will be the same as when you return a leased car in . To make sure the return process is as smooth as possible, bring the following documents to a dealership near : 

  • Vehicle inspection report
  • Repair receipts
  • Keys/spare keys
  • Owner’s manual
  • Maintenance records

If you were in a rush and happened to forget any of the documents above, we can always look them up. 

Returning a Leased Car Step by Step

Returning a leased car can feel a bit stressful, but it’s pretty easy when following the steps below: 

  1. Drop your vehicle off at our dealership. 
  2. A trusted specialist will come out to assess the vehicle’s overall quality, any damage, and other important factors.
  3. If there are any extra miles on the odometer that exceed the commitment written in your lease deal or any additional wear on the vehicle, you are subject to penalty fees.
  4. After the inspection is complete, feel free to browse our new or certified pre-owned inventory if you’re not sure whether you want to buy or lease again. 

Can You Return a Leased Car Early?

You’ll have to check with your specific local leasing company, but many companies allow drivers to return their leased vehicles early. If you choose to return your lease early, you may have to pay off the amount owed and any other additional fees. As soon as you return a lease early, you will no longer be responsible for monthly lease payments, and you have the choice to upgrade to a newer lease model!
