If you want to avoid possible charges when returning a leased vehicle, make sure your maintenance is up to date! Ensure any service lights on your car are taken care of before bringing your vehicle in. You can leave the outside of your car as is, but please ensure that the inside has been cleaned as much as possible
2. Check your mileage
Whether you are over or under your allotted mileage, make note.
3. Have all sets of keys and original equipment with you when you bring your car back.
All sets of keys, owner’s manuals, boot covers, etc need to come back with the vehicle being dropped off. If all of these items are not returned at the time of your Mercedes-Benz lease return, you can expect to incur additional fees. This is to ensure the next driver has all the equipment that they need.
4. Complete a Pre-Inspection on Your Lease
Check your vehicle for any excess wear and tear. You can schedule your pre-inspection at our dealership and complete your lease return as soon as you’re finished.
FAQs: How Do I Return a Leased Car?
Even if you feel pretty comfortable with the ins and outs of returning a leased car, there’s a very good chance that you’d like to avoid fees and charges when you complete your Mercedes-Benz lease return at our dealership. Here, we’ve covered several of the most common questions:
How do I return my leased car? After you’ve completed your pre-inspection, drive into our Mercedes-Benz lease return center and let us know that you’re ready for what comes next. Returning a leased car is really that easy; you don’t even need an appointment.
What counts as excess wear and tear? Some wear and tear is to be expected, but certain issues—such as low fluid levels or worn-out tires—are the lessee’s responsibility. Work to get your vehicle as close to new as possible, and contact us for an official Mercedes-Benz lease return checklist.
Can I return a leased car early? Returning a leased car early is certainly possible, but it won’t void whatever balance remains on your contract. Many drivers will prefer to find another Great Falls or Chantilly driver who can take over the contract.
