As you roll into the last few months or the last year of your lease term, begin the lease-end process by reviewing your options and choose the path that’s right for you.
OPTION 1 – FIND A NEW RIDE
Switch it up! Return your leased vehicle and start driving a new one.
OPTION 2 – BUY YOUR LEASED VEHICLE
If you love your ride too much to give it up, you can purchase your vehicle at any point during your lease.
OPTION 3 – RETURN YOUR VEHICLE
At the end of your lease, if you’re not ready to lease or buy a new Chevrolet or purchase your leased vehicle, you can return it to your Chevrolet dealership.
Schedule a pre-return inspection within 120 days of lease end for a report on wear and use and how that can affect amounts owed at lease end. Schedule an inspection at your dealership. A pre-return inspection can help you identify what repairs might need to be made before you turn in your vehicle to avoid potential fees. However, some lease-end fees may still apply.
REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE
Depending on your pre-return inspection results, you may need to make some repairs to avoid excess wear charges at lease end. Scheduling your repairs at your Chevrolet dealership is an excellent option.
Follow these tips when returning your vehicle to the dealership.
☐ Clean your vehicle inside and out.
☐ Clear all personal data from the vehicle, including garage door codes, saved phone numbers, app data, and saved addresses in navigation. For complete instructions, see your Owner’s Manual.
