Returning Your Vehicle and Leasing a New Acura

< Back to End of Lease Process

Follow these simple steps to trade in your vehicle for a new one at the end of your lease.

Six months before your final payment:

Research the latest models on Acura.com and explore current offers from Acura Financial Services®. When you're ready, schedule a test drive with your Acura dealer.

Two to three months before:

Contact the Lease Maturity Center to discuss the process for returning your vehicle and ask if you qualify for Acura Loyalty Advantage benefits. They can also provide you with contact information for your local vehicle inspection provider.

Two months before:

Schedule a free vehicle inspection to evaluate wear and use and related charges, if applicable. Have the inspection done well in advance of returning your vehicle so you have time to take care of any needed repairs. Your Acura Luxury Lease includes an Excess Wear and Use Waiver, but you will be responsible for any wear or use that exceeds the waiver. You will be responsible for any outstanding payments, excessive miles, and any other outstanding obligations specified in your lease agreement. You will receive a Vehicle Inspection Report following the inspection. Read more about Vehicle Inspection and Wear and Use Guidelines.

Schedule your vehicle inspection online by visiting SGS.

One week before:

Make an appointment to return your vehicle to your Acura dealer.

At the appointed time:

Deliver your vehicle in clean condition to your Acura dealer. Please bring the following items with you:

  • All keys to the vehicle
  • Owner's Manual and maintenance records
  • Vehicle Return Receipt & Odometer Disclosure Statement
  • Vehicle Inspection Report
  • Receipts for completed repairs

After you turn in your vehicle:

Contact a Client Services Representative at 1-866-777-6495 to inform Acura Financial Services® that you have returned your vehicle.

If all payments have been made, your call will initiate the completion process for your lease account, and you will no longer receive a regular monthly billing statement.

If you have payments remaining on your account, you are responsible for making them. If your dealer has agreed to make the final payments, follow up with your dealer to ensure they are made on time.

If any end-of-term liabilities apply, these items will be billed at a later time.
