How to return a Hyundai lease
Leasing is an option many car shoppers consider when looking for a new vehicle. But what happens when your lease expires? Take a look at these instructions on how to return a Hyundai lease to find out what to prepare for when returning your car.
Hyundai Lease Return Process
When you return your leased vehicle to your Hyundai dealership, the first thing that will happen is that dealership will conduct a walk-around inspection to assess any excess wear or use. The inspection will check for things like:
- Dents, dings or scratches longer that 4 inches.
- Chips in paint that are half an inch or more.
- Punctures in the body.
- Tread and condition of the tires.
- Scratches cracks or warping of the wheels.
- Chips or cracks in the glass.
You will receive a lease-end kit about 120 days before your turn-in date that will include a measuring tool for assessing the extent of any wear.
The interior of your Hyundai will be inspected as well. The interior inspection will check for things like cuts, holes, burns or stains on/in the upholstery.
If you are worried about the condition of your vehicle, you can schedule a pre-return inspection with your Hyundai dealership within 60 days of your return date. Having any damage repaired by a certified mechanic before returning your lease can help you avoid any additional fees.
After you return your vehicle to the dealership, you will complete an odometer disclosure statement and receive a return receipt.
There may be additional fees based on condition, mileage and past-due payments. You will receive a lease-end invoice with any additional costs.
A turn-in appointment can be scheduled by calling your Hyundai dealership.
