Look For Lease End Letter

You should receive a notice in the mail from Ford a month or two before the end of your lease. This will remind you that your time driving the vehicle is up and that you should be preparing to take it back to the dealership. That notice will indicate some of the following steps that you should follow, but it helps to be prepared ahead of time. Following the procedure will minimize the chances that you end up having to pay hefty penalties for something that you overlooked.

Schedule Your Inspection

While you are permitted some wear and tear on your vehicle, you are responsible for anything significant. You might not always see those right away, so it is helpful to have a third party inspect your Ford to determine what corrections you need to make. This is a free service offered by Ford, so you will want to take advantage of it. Ensure that you schedule it a few weeks out from the time you need to turn the car back in. This will allow you time to make repairs should they be necessary. The inspector will let you know of any items that need your attention. This will clue you in as to what you are facing before handing the car back in. Keep in mind that you need to return the vehicle with the same features that you leased it with, so that is something to consider if you made any modifications along the way.

Correct Any Issues

Once you have had the inspection, you have choices to make. You might find that nothing needs to be done. If so, that is great. If you have some repairs that need to be made, you can either have those done yourself or make plans to take care of them. The choice is up to you. If you have us do it, they can be taken care of when you hand the vehicle over. We will settle those items when we prepare the final bill. If you have them done yourself, make sure you keep the receipts so that you can prove the repairs were made by an authorized service center if necessary.

Make an Appointment

When you get really close to the time your lease expires, you will want to make an appointment to bring it to our team. This will ensure that you are not waiting around for someone to help you. We will have a specialist ready to assist you from the moment that you arrive. We conduct a final inspection and go over the final bill with you. Your lease obligation will be over at that point, and you will be free to go on your way.

If you follow these steps, you will be well on your way towards an easy handover when your Ford lease expires. Feel free to contact our team at Skyline Ford located in Salem, OR at any time if you have questions about the process. We are here to help you however we can. We can also talk to you about the possibility of driving away in another new Ford lease as well.
