Returning a Leased Car at INFINITI of Downtown LA

2021 INFINITI QX80 on the street

Returning a leased car is easier than many people think. In fact, it’s why so many people around Glendale and Downey choose leasing over buying. The monthly payments are lower, sure, but the process for returning a leased vehicle is easier on the whole compared to returning a trade-in. Still, you might wonder what to do with your leased vehicle or even “Can you return a leased car early?”. INFINITI of Downtown LA is here to provide you with answers to these and all your other car-buying questions!



What to Bring With you When Returning a Leased Vehicle

Returning a leased car is fairly straightforward in most cases. Just remember to bring these things with you:

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

Forget any of the above when you visit us? No problem! Most of them can be located digitally or manually replaced fairly easily.

Returning a Leased Car Step by Step

Returning a leased vehicle is much the same at our Los Angeles dealership as it will be in other Van Nuys area dealers. Usually, you will want to complete the following steps:

  1. You will drop off your vehicle at the dealership to which you’re returning it. 
  2. A INFINITI pro will inspect the vehicle for damage & condition. Remember, with lease contracts, you’re subject to paying excess wear and tear fees or mileage overages. 
  3. Once the inspection process of your vehicle is done, you can upgrade to a newer model for a new lease, buy out your current leased vehicle, or walk away and go for any of our new or used vehicles. 

Returning a Leased Car Early

Can you return a leased car early? Make sure you check your individual lease contract or call your leasing company for the exact answer! Normally, you can find out who you need to call by looking at one of your monthly lease payment statements. In most cases, Huntington Park drivers like you will be able to return their leased car early.
