Returning a Leased Car in New Jersey

2022 Land Rover Defender driving on desert road


So, it’s time to start thinking about returning your leased car or SUV. We understand that the process can be a little nerve-wracking—but it certainly doesn’t have to be that way! If you’re getting ready to take the next steps today, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ll cover what to bring to the dealership, what to do in advance, and what to expect on the day of your lease return, so you can move forward with confidence.

Items to Bring When Returning a Leased Car

If you’re returning a leased car in NJ, you’ll want to collect each of the following items before you drive in from Rumson or Colts Neck:

  • Proof of maintenance / proof of repairs
  • Vehicle inspection report
  • Repair receipts
  • Keys/spare keys
  • Owner’s manual
  • Maintenance records

Returning a Leased Car Step-by-Step

Returning a leased car is usually not much more difficult than driving it to our dealership in Eatontown! Here’s a brief overview of what you should do before the date of your lease return:

  1. Complete a pre-inspection before you turn in your leased car. Doing so can help to reduce the risk of surprise fees or charges, giving you a chance to make necessary repairs before the date of your return. Reach out to our lease return center if you’d like to learn more about what’s covered in a pre-inspection.
  2. We want to make sure that we’re prepared to meet your needs, so contact us in advance to let us know how you’d like to end your lease. You can keep the vehicle you’ve been driving by buying out the contract, choose a different new or used vehicle from our inventory, or take your next steps elsewhere.

On the day of your lease return, you’ll take these steps:

  1. Drive into our lease return center and sign an odometer statement.
  2. Choose how you’d like to proceed and/or pick out your new vehicle.
  3. Our service team will look over the vehicle and provide the results of your final inspection. Your bill may not be available right away; it might be sent to you later on.

Returning a Leased Car Early

Can you return a leased car early? Doing so might require you to jump through a few hoops, but there are paths that you can take if you’d like to pursue an upgrade as soon as possible. Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  1. If you’d like to own the vehicle that you’ve been leasing, you can buy out the lease and start to build equity sooner rather than later.
  2. If you want to find another vehicle, finding another driver who can take over your lease is usually the best option. Contact our team to learn more about this option.
  3. Your lease agreement may include early termination penalties, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick it out. Sit down with a team member to talk about your options.
