Southern California Ford Dealers Lease Return Options

2017 Ford Fusion

Knowing your Ford lease end options will help you make a fully informed decision. After all, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. For some people, returning the car they've been leasing makes the most sense. But for others, purchasing it is the smartest decision.

No matter what option you choose, your Southern California Ford Dealers are here to help with each step of the process.

Return Your Vehicle

You should know about your Southern California Ford Dealers lease return options, if that's the route you decide to go.

First, you must have the condition of the car evaluated for wear and use. Get a lease vehicle inspection before the lease runs out, giving you time to make an insurance claim for damage that might be covered. It also helps you avoid surprises at the Lease Return Center.

If necessary, schedule repairs and ensure only OEM parts are used for the work. This can help you save money, rather than paying penalties when returning the car.

You'll need to work with the originating dealer for your lease. Make an appointment to return the car, which must be before or on your lease-end date. You must clean all personal items out of the vehicle, including any CDs, USB drives, etc. All accessories that came with the car must be in it, such as floor mats, key fobs, owner manuals, etc.

You must satisfy any outstanding financial obligations associated with the lease. Also, you need to sign the Odometer Statement.

Lease or Purchase a New Ford

Of course, you can always choose to lease or buy a new Ford after you've met all your lease obligations. Ford Credit helps with options that provide convenience and make either one affordable.

The first step you'll need to take is choosing a vehicle that works for you. Think about what might happen in the next few years of your life, and plan accordingly. Just because a car satisfies your needs right now doesn’t necessarily mean it'll be a great option further down the road.

One great way to narrow down what car you want is to visit a dealership and take some for test drives. With a specific model selected, you're ready to start the lease or purchase process. Naturally, both options have their advantages and drawbacks, but a finance specialist at the dealership can help you decide which is best for your lifestyle.

Purchase Your Vehicle

Some people choose to purchase their lease vehicle for a variety of reasons. If you've made that decision, you'll need a purchase option price from the Red Carpet Lease Agreement.

Next, make an appointment with the originating dealer to finalize the purchase. At that time, you must satisfy all financial obligations associated with the lease, and have financing to buy it secured. If you have questions about these items, the originating dealer can answer them thoroughly.
