Returning a Leased Car at Mercedes-Benz of Bedford

Lease Agreement


Is your lease term coming to an end soon? If so, you might be wondering about the process of returning a leased car. You might also be considering ending your lease early, if you have your eye on a newer model or a different vehicle entirely. Fortunately, the process of returning a leased car in the Beachwood area is generally quite straightforward, with just a few key steps to follow. The finance team at Mercedes-Benz of Bedford has everything you need to know about the return process, including returning a leased car early, in the guide below.

Returning a Leased Car: Necessary Materials

If your lease is up and it’s time to return your vehicle, the first thing you want to do is gather a few important materials and documents. Be sure to bring the following with you to the dealership to make sure the return process goes as smoothly as possible:

  • Original lease paperwork (if available)
  • Any maintenance records
  • Your vehicle inspection report
  • Any repair receipts
  • Your owner’s manual
  • Key fobs and spare keys

If you can’t find any of these materials, such as the maintenance records or repair receipts, the dealership may be able to supplement some of them for you. Even if you don’t have all the necessary documents or items, you still have to return your vehicle by the date stipulated in the lease agreement.

Returning a Leased Car: The Process

Once you’ve gathered the materials listed above, the lease return process is simple and straightforward. Even if you’ve leased your vehicle from another dealership in the Mayfield area, you can return it to Mercedes-Benz of Bedford! Here’s what you can expect from the process:

  1. Bring your vehicle to the dealership. 
  2. A member of our service team will perform a thorough inspection, checking your car for any damage or wear and tear.
  3. Any mileage exceeding the restrictions in your lease agreement, or any unusual wear and tear, are subject to fees.
  4. Once the inspection is complete, you can upgrade to a newer model for a new lease, buy out your current vehicle, or start over with any of the vehicles from our inventory.

Can You Return a Leased Car Early?

Can you return a leased car early? You’re in luck! At most dealerships, you can return your lease early if you want to upgrade to a new model or look for a different vehicle. However, you’ll still be on the hook to pay off the amount that you still owe on your vehicle, along with any fees that come with returning a leased car early. Be sure to carefully review your financial situation before making any commitments.
