In theory, you should be able to return the leased vehicle to any dealership of the same brand.
If you’ve moved or the dealership is no longer in business, you’ll obviously have to choose another one.
Call the used-car manager to set up an appointment for the lease return.
Do I have to return my lease to the same dealership?
Every leased car must be returned by the lease termination date on the contract. The vehicle can be returned to any dealer of the same brand. (If you are using Cartelligent for your new vehicle you can just return your current leased car to us.)
Can you turn in a car lease early?
However, you may be able to transfer your lease, buy your car or trade it in for a new lease. Returning the vehicle before the lease expires is an option, but not a good one. You’re still on the hook for all the remaining payments, plus substantial fees and penalties for early termination.
What is considered normal wear and tear on a leased car?
Normal Wear and Tear. Most lease contracts allow you to incur “normal wear and tear” without having to pay an additional charge. Damages that are minor in nature or have a small diameter of damage, such as less than 1/2 inch, are also usually considered “normal wear and tear.”
