How to Return a Leased Car

2022 Lexus ES


We’re excited to provide Belleair shoppers like you with a fantastic selection of new Lexus vehicles. Lexus vehicles offer a luxurious driving experience that’s unlike anything else on the road, making it easy for you to find the perfect Lexus model to tackle your commute. After deciding on the right new Lexus, you’ll often have the ability to finance or lease.

Although applying for financing is popular among many car buyers, others will prefer leasing. If you choose to lease your new Lexus, you’ll simply have to return it at the end of your leasing contract. Many other dealerships provide a complicated lease return process, but not Lexus of Clearwater. Learn all about lease turn-ins today with our finance experts and have these questions answered:

  • Can lease returns be done at any dealership?
  • Can you return a leased car early?
  • What items do you need for a lease return?

Returning a Leased Car at Any Dealership – Is It Possible?

Before we can go over returning a leased car early, you may be wondering if you can return a leased car at any dealership. You’ll want to reference your leasing contract, but most do offer the ability to turn in your lease at any certified dealership. At Lexus of Clearwater, even if you didn’t originally lease your Lexus from us, we can still help you return it.

Can You Return a Leased Car Early?

Now that we know about returning your leased car at almost any dealership, can you return a leased car early? Most leasing contracts do offer the ability to return your leased leased car early. However, returning your leased car early may come with associated fees and penalties, so you’ll want to review your leasing agreement to understand specific terms.
