Lease Return Guide

Lease Return Guidelines | Germain Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

Returning a leased vehicle isn’t the kind of thing that most people ever do frequently enough to really say they feel confident about knowing all the steps in the process. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to lease returns and what you can expect and when. And it’s worth noting that, whether you lease a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram vehicle, the return process is the same, which makes things a bit easier.

90 Days – There is nothing specific that needs to be done at 90 days out from the end of your lease, but this is when Chrysler Capital recommends that you start looking into which vehicle you’re going to want next. Maybe you want to buy the vehicle you’ve been leasing and this step can be skipped, but if you’re considering another model, and need to do things like schedule test drives, it’s good to get started early.

60 Days – At 60 days out from the end of your lease, it is recommended that you schedule an inspection of your vehicle. This is so that there are no surprises at the last minute when you turn in your vehicle. It gives you time to address any issues beforehand so that things go smoothly when the day arrives.

30 Days – At 90 days out, you started your research into what vehicle model you want next, and at 30 days out, it’s time to choose a trim/options and pick out the specific vehicle that you want. Not every trim or combination of options will be in stock all the time, so letting us know what vehicle we can get for you ahead of time will help us have it ready for you when you turn in your leased vehicle.

What You Need To Turn In Your Vehicle

The day has arrived and it’s time to turn in your leased vehicle. Whatever your plans are for your next vehicle, a purchase or a lease, these are the things you’ll need for your current vehicle turn-in:

  • A copy of your Chrysler Capital Lease Agreement
  • All keys, keyless entry fobs and any other additions associated with your leased vehicle
  • All vehicle documents received at time of delivery including the owner’s and maintenance manuals

Once the process is complete, we can help you with your next vehicle. Lease or buy, your next Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram vehicle can be waiting for you already with just a bit of prep work. If you’re going to be turning in a lease soon, you can check out our selection right now!
