If you are considering returning your Mazda lease early, you might wonder what your options are. Regardless of your circumstances, our Auto Express Mazda finance department is happy to accommodate our customers with flexible auto financing. So, let’s look at how to prepare if you need to end your lease early.

Early Return

Ending your lease before the term ends is possible, but you may be subject to early termination fees that vary depending on your situation. For example, if you are an eligible service member, you may be able end your lease agreement without any charges if you contact your lease dealer.

When you end your lease early, your lease dealer will calculate an early return balance if you return your vehicle 31 days or more before the maturity date, and you’ll receive a Lease-End invoice between 60-120 days after you complete the return.

Preparing to Return Your Lease

Once you’ve decided to return your vehicle, you’ll want to assess it for wear and damage before bringing it into the dealership. Then, after you make any necessary appointments for repairs, contact your lease dealer to schedule a lease-return appointment. In addition, you can schedule a pre-inspection appointment between 15 and 60 days before your lease end date.

What to Bring to your Lease Appointment

After you schedule your lease-return appointment, make sure you prepare your vehicle and any required documents. If applicable, you’ll want to bring any original equipment, Owner’s Manuals, a complete set of keys, a toolkit, and a spare tire. Once you get to the dealership, confirm that your vehicle return will be accepted and sign the odometer statement, making sure to keep a copy for your records.
