Lease Return Options

Leasing a car can be a great way to drive a new car at an affordable price with low commitment. While it is not the right option for every driver, leasing a car has multiple benefits to leasing a car. Many drivers who value luxury in their vehicles and choose to lease a car rather than buy one upfront are able to afford to lease a much nicer vehicle model than they would have been able to afford if they chose to buy a vehicle instead. Leasing a car also allows drivers to upgrade their vehicle model to a nicer, newer model every few years without having to actually purchase a brand-new car that frequently.
Leases expire after a set amount of time. This means that, once you have leased a car, you eventually have to either buy that car or return it to a dealership at the end of your lease. If you choose to return your leased The process of returning a leased car can seem complex and confusing, but Tony Auto Group makes returning your leased car easy and convenient with multiple lease return options for drivers.

What to Expect When Returning a Leased Car

It’s normal to feel a bit nervous when it comes time to return your leased car. Fortunately, however, Tony Auto Group makes the process of returning a leased car as simple and hassle-free as possible.
One thing to expect before returning your leased car is an inspection. When you return a leased car or near the end of your lease, your leased car will be inspected for any excessive wear or miles that go over the allotted number of miles you were allowed at the beginning of your lease.
In these cases, you may owe additional money to make up for this excess of miles or excessive wear and tear. On the other hand, it is also important to check if your leased car has equity before returning it in order to see if you are owed any money back when you return your leased car.

Returning a Leased Car Early

One of the main principles of leasing a car is that you have to keep that car for a specified amount of time that was made clear to you in the original terms of your lease.
Generally, that amount of time is somewhere between three and five years. However, if you do not like the car you have leased or if it no longer fits your lifestyle or driving needs, it can sometimes be possible to return a leased car early–before the lease on the car has actually expired.
In these cases, it is likely that you will have to pay an early termination fee if you choose to return your leased car early. If you want to return your leased car before your lease has expired, you will need to discuss this option with your leasing company in order to obtain the residual value of your car and get information about any early termination fees that may apply.

Returning a Leased Car to a Different Dealership

It is usually possible to return a leased car to a different dealership than where you originally leased the car. However, returning a leased car to a different dealership is generally not recommended if you do not plan to buy a car from the dealership where you return your leased car.
Many dealerships may refuse to allow you to return a car you leased elsewhere to them if you do not plan to do business with them beyond returning your leased car.

Returning a Leased Car with Equity

If you have lease equity, you may be able to get some money back to put toward your next lease or a down payment on a car at the end of your lease. Lease equity occurs when the car you originally leased is worth more at the end of the lease than the value of the pre-established buyout that was agreed upon at the beginning of your lease.
This can happen for several reasons. One of the most common reasons why a leased car might have equity at the end of the lease is if the driver who leased the vehicle drove fewer miles throughout the lease period than the number of miles that were allotted to them in their original lease terms.
Determining if your leased car has equity can seem daunting, but it is actually a fairly simple process. You can easily get an appraisal on your leased vehicle and compare this appraisal value to the residual value of your leased vehicle. If the current appraisal value of your leased vehicle is more than its predicted residual value and the difference between these two values is greater than the cost of any monthly lease payments you have left, this likely means that your leased car has equity.
