Whether you are ready for something new or can't let go of your VW model, we'll walk you through preparing for the Lease-End Process.


Lease-End Process

    • Turn in your VW vehicle

The following steps will help you complete your current lease:

      • Review the condition of your vehicle using our detailed Wear & Use Guide.
      • Schedule your vehicle inspection.
      • Turn in your vehicle to your VW dealer.

    • Purchase your VW vehicle

Not ready to let go of your current VW model? No problem. Here's what to do if you'd like to purchase your current vehicle.

      • Contact your VW dealer to receive payoff instructions.
      • Consider our financing and Volkswagen Drive Easy Vehicle Protection options.
      • Follow instructions provided by your Volkswagen dealer to complete your purchase.

If you choose to lease or purchase a new VW, go to your dealer's website to find your next model and schedule a test drive.


Wear & Use Review

While some wear and use are expected, our Wear & Use Guide helps make conducting your own self-inspection easy. We'll help you evaluate "normal" versus "excess" wear and use to determine what you can expect on turn-in day.

    • Interior Normal Wear & Use
      • All original equipment present, including the owner's manual, all sets of keys, airbags, CD player, navigation CDs, and the convertible top cover (if applicable).
      • All speakers are intact and working.

    • Interior Excess Wear & Use
      • Upholstery holes, tears, burns, or singes.
      • Excessive staining of the upholstery, carpet, or interior panels.
      • Scratched, damaged, or blown speakers.

    • Exterior Normal Wear & Use
      • Dents, chips, and scratches smaller than two inches on bumper or panel.
      • Single windshield chip without spidering.
      • Fewer than three "dings" per panel.

    • Exterior Excess Wear & Use
      • Scratches, dents, gouges, and chips larger than two inches on bumper or panel.
      • Chipped, cracked, or heavily pitted glass, or improperly tinted windows.
      • Improperly completed body repairs (i.e., mismatched paint, sanding marks, and incomplete dent removals).
      • More than three "dings" per panel (a ding is the size of a quarter or smaller, without broken paint).


Schedule Your Vehicle Inspection

    • Inspection Process
      • Call your dealer to schedule a vehicle inspection.
      • Once completed you will receive an inspection condition report itemizing any excess wear.
      • Excess wear will be billed on your Turn-In Settlement Invoice (unless you choose to repair the items prior to turn-in).
