Lease Agreement

When you’re nearing the end of your contract, how does returning a leased car work? Can you return a leased car early? 

The good news is that the returns process is simple, and you have a lot of different options at Jaguar North Haven. Find out how to make your lease return go as smoothly as possible, and feel free to reach out to us at our North Haven dealership with any questions.

Items to Bring When Returning a Leased Car

Before you make the drive down from New Haven or Wallingford, we recommend taking inventory. You’ll need to bring a few things to the dealership, so use this checklist to get prepared:

  • Vehicle inspection report
  • Repair receipts
  • Keys/spare keys
  • Owner’s manual
  • Maintenance records

Returning a Leased Car Step by Step

Once you have all the items that you need, returning a leased car is simple. And even if you leased your vehicle from another location in the Branford, you can still drop off your car with us in North Haven! We’ll take care of everything. All you need to do is the following:

  1. Visit our dealership with your car and items from the above checklist.
  2. Get a brief inspection by one of our specialists. They’ll check for signs of wear and tear and assess the overall quality.
  3. Get your mileage verified. If your mileage goes over the limits written in your contract, you’ll be subject to extra fees. 
  4. Take the next steps. Once the inspection is complete, you can upgrade to a new model or simply leave and go about your day. If you want to keep your vehicle, you can also ask about a lease buyout.

Returning a Leased Car Early

Can you return a leased car early? This depends on your particular leasing company, but in general, returning a leased car early is doable. Be sure to ask your leasing company if there are any additional fees associated with turning in your car early, but other than that, the process is virtually identical to any other lease return. You’ll still be responsible for paying off the owed amount, including any penalties, but you’ll be able to upgrade to a new vehicle or return your car without a problem.
