Toyota Lease Return FAQs
How Do I Return My Leased Vehicle?
When it comes time to return your leased Toyota, there are a handful of items you’ll need to complete. The lease return process is quite simple; in fact, it boils down to just three easy steps!
Step One: Pre-Inspection
One of the biggest parts of the lease return process is the pre-inspection that you will need to perform on your own.
The pre-inspection is immensely important because it will let you know if you went over the mileage restriction or if you need any service repairs to be completed prior to turning the car in.
We suggest taking care of the following tasks before returning the vehicle to the dealership:
- Check the mileage.
- Check the entire car for any signs of excessive wear and tear.
- Have your Toyota detailed.
Step Two: Return Your Ride
When the big day comes, all you will have to do is drop off your leased Toyota to us here at our dealership. Once you have handed over the keys and the owner’s manual to a member of our staff, you’ll be good to go!
Step Three: Inspection Report
After your vehicle has been returned, you will get a letter from the leasing company detailing the results of your vehicle’s inspection.
Keep in mind that you may have to pay some fees or charges, depending on whether you went over the mileage limit or had excessive wear and tear on the car.
What Are My Options at the End of a Lease?
At the end of a lease term, you have three options: return the lease, extend the lease, or buy the lease.
If you choose to move on from your current Toyota lease, you’ll follow the steps as mentioned above. If you choose to extend your lease, you should be in contact with your leasing company to set up a new agreement.
If you’ve fallen in love with your current ride, you can choose to buy it at the end of the leasing term. To do this, you should consult your lease agreement to see the proposed purchase price.
Can I Return My Leased Toyota to Any Toyota Dealership I Want?
The vehicle that you have been leasing should be turned in to the originating Toyota dealer where you began your lease.
If you no longer live in the same area that you did at the beginning of your lease, you’re welcome to locate another Toyota dealership and turn it in to them.
What Should I Have With Me When Turning in My Leased Toyota?
We have provided you with the following list to let you know what to bring to your turn-in appointment:
- The vehicle’s tool kit and spare tire, if applicable
- All sets of keys
- All owner’s manuals
- Any items like cargo covers, radios, and headrests that were included as original equipment when you started the lease
Are There Any Charges at the End of a Lease?
There are no set fees or charges you’ll have to pay at the end of a lease. However, you may be subject to the following charges or fees after the final inspection has been completed:
