When your lease term is nearing an end in San Diego, it’s time to make an appointment at our Acura lease return center. Read on for a step-by-step guide to how to return a leased car, and our tips for how you can return a leased car early without a financial loss.
Before you stop by Kearny Mesa Acura to make your Acura MDX lease return at our dealership near National City, be sure you’ve taken the following steps:
Double-check that every item on your Acura maintenance checklist is complete according to the schedule in your owner’s manual. You should also schedule service to deal with any warning light indicators. Then, thoroughly clean the interior of your vehicle. That means vacuum it out, clean the windows, and wipe down all surfaces. We’ll take care of the exterior at our Acura lease return center.
Note the number of miles displayed on your odometer. If the current mileage isn’t over the allotted amount on your lease agreement, you won’t owe a fee when you return your lease.
Anything that you received with your new Acura, including but not limited to keys, manuals, boot covers, and cargo covers, must be returned at the end of your Acura lease. Failure to return any of these items could mean extra charges.
Can you return a leased car early without a pre-inspection? Typically, no. Most manufacturers require you to schedule a lease inspection 60 to 90 days before you turn in your leased car. A pre-inspection of your Acura serves to identify any additional damages that could cost you money.
Making your Acura MDX lease return early is an option for Carlsbad drivers, but you may incur a financial loss if your vehicle is worth less than the current market value. To avoid large fees, you may be able to “buy out” the lease (in other words, purchase it from the leasing company) and then sell the vehicle in a private sale. Keep in mind that you may still owe a small early termination fee of a few hundred dollars.
After your pre-inspection is complete, it’s easy to make an appointment with our finance specialists and complete your Acura lease return.
