When Should I Start Preparing?
When you know the end of your lease is coming up, you’ll need to start preparing ahead of time for a smooth transition. If this is your first time leasing a vehicle, you might be wondering when the best time to start preparing might be. The recommended timeframe might vary depending on who you ask, but we’re here to share our recommendations to give you the easiest, most stress-free experience possible. Starting early is a great way to spread out any tasks that need to be done, which lessens the overall burden. Once you’re about 120 days, or four months, away from the end of your lease, it’s time to start researching your options. We’ll be going in-depth about those options down below. At the 90-day mark, it’s time to start preparing your car, with an end-of-lease inspection, and performing any necessary repairs. Lastly, at the 60-day mark, it’s time to decide on your desired option, and contact your dealership to take the next steps!
What are My End-of-Lease Options?
As we mentioned above, you can start researching your end-of-lease options early in order to make an informed decision. In general, there are four main options when you’re leasing a Ford. You can choose a new vehicle, extend your current lease, purchase the vehicle you’ve been leasing, or end your lease. Each of these options has its own pros and cons, and the ultimate decision is yours to make based on the needs of your lifestyle. If you choose to purchase a new Ford, you’ll have the benefit of perusing our extensive inventory here at Susquehanna Ford! Or, if you’re happy with your current vehicle, extending your lease, or purchasing the vehicle, known as a lease buyout, may be the best option for you. Or, if you’re ready to move on and lease a different vehicle, you’ll go ahead and end your lease. No matter which option you choose, our team will be there to help you every step of the way.
How to Prepare for the End of Your Lease?
As we mentioned earlier, you should start thinking about how to prepare your vehicle at about the 90-day mark. At this point, you should start focusing on how to get your car in great condition. The goal is to restore your vehicle to like-new condition, so that if you choose to return it, it’s ready for the next driver to lease! Once you’re approaching roughly 90 days before the end of your lease, you should bring your car in for an end-of-lease inspection. This will be a general inspection of your vehicle, where your mechanic will inspect its overall condition. End-of-lease maintenance might include an oil change, a tire rotation, and topping off all of your vehicle’s fluids. However, if your car is in need of any other repairs, this is the time to do them! Then, when you’re getting ready to return your vehicle, be sure to clean out the interior, and make sure it’s empty of all of your personal belongings.
What are the Benefits of Leasing?
If you’re considering entering a new lease, you might be wondering what the benefits might be. When you lease a vehicle, you make a monthly payment to keep the vehicle in your possession. When you lease a vehicle, you know ahead of time that you have the option to return it at the end of the lease, which is great for those who know they only need a car for a certain time period. For example, if you’re moving, planning on having children, or simply saving up for the down payment on a car, leasing could be a great short-term solution. Leasing is also a great option for those who love experiencing all the latest Ford models! When you lease a car, you have the opportunity to drive the newest vehicles on the market, without the commitment of having to purchase them. When you have the ability to try out all these different options, you’ll never be bored behind the wheel!
