What Is the Lease-End Process?

Don’t be caught off guard at lease-end with unexpected fees. Instead of worrying about how much you’ll owe, start choosing between a new RAM truck or Jeep® SUV near Plant City, FL. At Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Winter Haven, our experts can walk you through the lease-end process and answer your questions.

What Is Inspected at Lease-End?

Your leased vehicle will be subject to an inspection. Since you were essentially “renting” the car, it’s required that it be returned in almost the same condition. Normal wear is to be expected, such as worn tread or windshield wipers, and won’t be counted against you. Minor damage, like exterior dents and dings, is physically examined and measured for length and depth. If your upholstery has tears or stains, which make repair difficult, the inspector will mark it down. Next, they plug that data into a computer or app. This information shows you what you’ll owe.

Dodge Chrysler Jeep of Winter Haven has technicians on-hand to review your inspection sheet and help you decide if you should repair your vehicle before turning it in. Give our service center a call if you need help getting your car ready for a lease-end inspection.

Lease-End Offers

Lease-end offers are deals that lower or eliminate certain lease-end fees. For example, many pull-ahead offers will cover a certain amount of excess mileage. Others waive the disposition fee at the end of your contract.

What’s Next?

Once your contract comes to an end, you’ll have three choices to pick from:

  • Purchase the leased vehicle at its residual value
  • Sign up for another lease
  • Turn in your keys and walk away
