Don't leave your Honda vehicle return to the last minute. Start planning at least 2 to 3 months before your lease concludes to ensure a smooth process. Reach out to the Lease Maturity Center for detailed information on returning your vehicle.
To wrap up your lease, schedule a vehicle inspection as the end date approaches. You will need to provide your Honda Financial Services account number and your vehicle's VIN.
Keep in mind that additional costs may apply when returning your leased vehicle. These can include outstanding payments, fees for excess mileage, as well as expenses for wear and tear beyond the allowable limits, among other obligations.
A week before your lease ends, it's advisable to schedule an appointment with Mt. Kisco Honda. On the appointed day, deliver the vehicle to Mt. Kisco Honda, ensuring you have all keys, the owner's manual, and maintenance records. Don't forget the vehicle return receipt and inspection report, along with receipts for any prior repairs.
Once the vehicle is returned, notify the Lease Maturity Center of the completion of the return process.
Every vehicle experiences natural wear and tear from the moment it leaves the dealership, and this is taken into account for leased vehicles. When returning your Honda model, a vehicle inspection will be conducted, but you can also evaluate any scratches, dents, or damage to gauge potential charges.
Excessive wear and tear typically include dents larger than 1-1/2 inches or scratches exceeding three inches in length. If the tire tread measures less than 4/32 inches, there may be a charge for replacement.
Furthermore, any paint stains or noticeable touch-up paint application are considered damage. Having four or more dings on a single panel or dings on more than four panels is considered excessive. Similarly, more than two scratches per panel fall into the category of excessive wear and tear.
When it comes to returning your leased vehicle, it's important to keep an eye out for signs of wear and tear that might go beyond the usual wear. This can include dings larger than 1-1/2 inches in diameter, cracks in the windshield, damaged or broken glass, as well as issues like damaged mirrors or lenses, tears or stains in the interior, and stained or damaged seat cushions. Additionally, any problems with your vehicle's stereo, airbags, or other automated systems, as well as bent or damaged wheels or rims, could have an impact on your lease return process. Being aware of these factors can help ensure a smoother return experience for your leased Honda vehicle.
