What Happens When I Return a Leased Car?

Returning your leased Mazda is as easy as pie. You have three choices:

  • Purchase your leased Mazda
  • Return your leased vehicle and lease or purchase a new model
  • Simply return your vehicle to your Mazda dealership and leave empty-handed

Whichever choice helps you get to where you need to be and gets you the Mazda you desire, we're ready to help. 

Can I Buy Out My Mazda Lease?

You can absolutely buy out your lease. This is commonly done in situations where fees have accrued for excess mileage or excess wear and tear. In those cases, it makes more sense to finance the car instead of paying the fees to return it.

If you want to buy or lease a different Mazda vehicle instead, that's all right too. Mazda will waive your lease return disposition fee, if you lease or buy a new vehicle within 30 days of your lease return.

What Do I Need to Do Before Returning a Lease?

Mazda provides a full return checklist that you can look over when preparing your lease return. A few highlights include:

Repair the Vehicle as Needed

Excess wear and use needs to be buffed out, so you can return the Mazda in a respectable condition.

How does Mazda define excess wear? Through factors, such as:

  • Scratches or dents larger than a credit card
  • Damages to lights and glass
  • Tears, stains, or burns in the interior larger than a credit card

Look over your car. If you notice any signs of excess wear, take your Mazda in for repairs to ensure a smooth lease return.

Bring in the Mazda With All of its Original Equipment

On top of ordinary repairs, the Mazda will need to arrive in the same condition in which it was leased, including the original accessories. You should also bring in your owner's manual, toolkits, etc.

Sign the Paperwork at the Dealership

You should return the leased vehicle to the Mazda dealership that you leased it from, although exceptions can be made. If necessary, you can return it to a different Mazda dealership.

Once there, you need to sign the lease return paperwork, such as the odometer agreement, certifying how many miles have been driven on your leased Mazda.

Steps After Mazda Leasing

You'll receive a lease-end invoice, including additional payments, late fees, etc., if any are applicable. If you paid a security deposit, those funds will be applied to cover those fees.

That's it! Congratulations on your Mazda return.

Can I End My Mazda Lease Early?

You can! However, this can incur an early return fee. This usually is the difference between the car's current value-given to you as credit-and the balance left on the lease.

In most situations, these fees add up quickly, so contact your dealership to get an exact payoff quote.

If you return your vehicle 31 days or more before the return date, you should:

  • Receive the lowest calculated balance, in most circumstances
  • Receive your lease-end invoice 60 to 120 days after return
  • Return your lease as you normally would
