FAQs: Get answers to the most frequently asked questions about returning your Subaru lease at Colonial Subaru in Danbury, CT

Here at Colonial Subaru, we know that drivers from Waterbury to Norwalk love our new Subaru leasing options. However, while leasing is always a strong value proposition at the outset, a lot of drivers are uncertain of what to do at the end of their lease. Luckily, we can help you explore the options at the end of your Subaru lease here at Colonial Subaru.

How do I return my lease?

Typically, most Subaru lease terms may run from 24 to 48 months. So, roughly a month or two before the end of your lease term, you should contact your local Subaru dealer to initiate the end of your lease. In most cases, you'll need to bring your vehicle in for an end-of-lease inspection to check the mileage on your vehicle and examine for signs of excess wear and tear. So, before you turn in your lease, it's a good idea to have your car washed and detailed inside and out and bring it to our Danbury, CT Subaru repair center to repair any dents, dings, or scratches in the paint.

What happens once I return my Subaru lease?

Once you return your Subaru lease, you'll need to pay any outstanding fees or lease payments and decide what you want to do from there. You can opt to buy out the lease and continue driving the vehicle, lease a newer Subaru model, or simply drop off the keys and walk away from the lease.

Do I need to buy a car from a dealership in order to return my existing lease there?

Not necessarily, but if you do not have another form of transportation, it may be a good idea to do so.

Do I need to return my car to the same dealership I bought it from?

As long as you return it to a licensed and participating Subaru dealer, you do not necessarily need to return your car to the same dealership you originally leased from.

Is there anything else I need to know to return my lease?

If you have any further questions about returning your Subaru lease, don't hesitate to reach out to us here at Colonial Subaru near Brewster, NY.

Excess Wear and Use

We want you to feel comfortable with the lease-end process and any charges incurred at vehicle turn-in. Wear and use is outlined in your Lease Agreement as follows:

  • Holes, tears, burns, stains, strong odors or excessively worn areas in the carpet, other interior surfaces or convertible top
  • Scratches, chips, dents, pits, rust, holes or cracks in the wheels or exterior surfaces, windshield or other glass surfaces or metal work
  • Cracked, broken, or missing windows, doors, lights, trim, mirrors, or antennae
  • Missing, damaged or nonworking mechanical equipment, safety or emissions control equipment, electrical or other parts or accessories
  • Damage to the vehicle's frame or alignment
  • Damage due to improper, poor quality or incomplete repairs or paint work. You also will remain liable to us for the full cost of any such items resulting from intentional or willful abuse or misuse
  • Any wear and use related to tires. Tire tread must be at least 1/8" (4/32") at the lowest point and may not contain any other damages. Also make sure that all tires match and are comparable quality to the original equipment. Also make sure to remove snow tires prior to your pre-inspection. Other items may be excluded as set forth in the Lease Agreement
  • Any missing manuals or missing or nonworking keys or remote entry devices

If you note any chargeable damage, make repairs to reduce your end-of-term liability3 and you may send your request through the Secure Message Center on with receipts for any repairs prior to turn-in (repairs must be made by a licensed repair facility). See Understand Wear and Use for additional information.

End-of-Term Billing

Based on the terms of your lease contract, your lease-end bill may include charges for outstanding payments, taxes, excess mileage and excess wear and use. There may also be a $300 disposition fee. Please review your contract carefully so you'll know what charges you may be billed for at the end of your lease. We will not charge you any fees when you turn in your vehicle.

We want to make this process as simple and straightforward as possible for you!
