You have a few options when it comes to returning your Chevrolet lease, and hopefully these options will help inform you on what you can do when you visit AutoNation Chevrolet Austin. If your questions aren't answered please contact us and our team would be more than happy to help.
This is the most popular option with AUSTIN drivers, as we make it easy to 'swap' out your lease for the latest make & model available at AutoNation Chevrolet Austin. We'll first go through an initial process of inspecting your current lease for any damages or needed repairs. Please note that it's easiest if we schedule your vehicle inspection in advance as this gives our team time to prepare.
If we're both satisfied with your vehicle's condition the next step would be to shop for new Chevrolet vehicles that match your desired specifications. Many shoppers tend to go for the latest and greatest cars, trucks or SUVs - and our team would be happy to help answer any of your questions that you might have.
If at the end of your lease you wish to keep your vehicle, this is a valid choice as well. After all you've spent the last few years with this vehicle, and you may have come to love it during that time! You'll choose to either buy the vehicle outright or finance the remaining amount, whichever is easiest for you.
We make it easy to finance and have plenty of options, so contact us or get pre-qualified today and start the process online! We'll make sure you are completely satisfied with your decision before you leave AutoNation Chevrolet Austin.
If your lease has matured and you're not interested in keeping your lease or a new Chevrolet, you have the option of returning your vehicle as well. This is a similar process to option 1 as we'll have to schedule an inspection date at our AUSTIN dealership, go over any maintenance or repair items, and discuss the final price.
After that we'll sign the necessary paperwork and ensure that you're completely satisfied before parting ways. Contact our team to get this process started by sending us a message or giving us a call at (512) 540-4260, preferably within a few weeks of your lease end date.
When should I prepare my lease return? Approximately 120 days before your lease matures, it's best to contact AutoNation Chevrolet Austin. This is a good time to come into our dealership for a pre-inspection and let us know if you are planning to keep your current Chevrolet or looking to get a new one.
When does my lease inspection happen? Approximately 75 days before your lease expires, an independent inspection company will contact you to arrange an appointment to discuss a brief but mandatory history of your vehicle.
What happens during my vehicle inspection? At this time, the independent inspection company will evaluate the condition of your Chevrolet. Upon completion of the inspection, a vehicle inspection report will be sent to you, upon request, outlining required repairs or associated costs for excess wear and use, if any. If any service or repairs are needed, you have the option of either having the work completed prior to vehicle return and submitting receipts to Chevrolet financial services or paying the charges in the report at your vehicle turn-in time. To ensure the repairs are acceptable and verified, we recommend having them completed at AutoNation Chevrolet Austin.
When do I need to return my vehicle? If you are returning your Chevrolet, it must be brought in to AutoNation Chevrolet Austin on or before the lease maturity date outlined in your initial lease paperwork. Please give us a call and schedule an appointment in advance, as this will help us to ensure we have the proper time allocated for your appointment. We will review the condition of your vehicle and confirm that all necessary repairs have been made. Both you and AutoNation Chevrolet Austin will then sign a confirmation form to validate that the turn-in process has been completed - and you'll be off on your way!
