Are you wondering what happens when your Mazda lease ends in Hartford? You have several options when it’s time to return your vehicle to the dealership. Trade in your lease for a new Mazda vehicle, like the Mazda CX-5, purchase your leased vehicle, or extend your lease on the current vehicle. Our finance experts suggest that you start planning six months ahead of your Mazda lease end date to decide which option is best for you.

Your Options at the End of Your Mazda Lease

When the end date of your Mazda lease approaches, you have three options when it comes time to return your leased vehicle:

  • Exchange your leased Mazda for a new vehicle, by financing or leasing
  • Purchase your current Mazda car
  • Extend your lease

Keep in mind, returning your lease early typically includes some charges depending on the terms of the agreement.

Mazda Lease-End Inspection

So, if you aren’t planning on extending your lease or purchasing your current vehicle, how do you prepare for the end of your lease? You should start by scheduling a free pre-inspection of your leased car 45 days ahead of our lease ending. The pre-inspection is an extensive evaluation of the wear and tear on your vehicle to prepare for possible charges, in addition to providing you with a detailed report of the inspection’s findings.

Wear and Tear Charges at the End of Your Mazda Lease

At the end of your lease in Glastonbury, you are responsible for the Excess Wear and Use estimate that you received after the pre-inspection. Sometimes, if denoted in your lease agreement, the first $1,000 of the charges may be waived. You can make the repairs elsewhere before turning in the leased vehicle, but you must contact Mazda Capital Services before the hand off to have the repairs verified and credited to the final bill. Other charges you may have to pay when your lease ends could include:

  • The disposition fee
  • Mileage driven over the mileage allowed within the lease contract
  • Any outstanding charges on your account.

The Loyalty Disposition Fee Waiver Program offer allows current drivers of leased Mazda vehicles the ability to have their disposition fee waived if purchasing or leasing a new Mazda model through Mazda Capital Services. Contact our finance department for more information.
