How to Return your Leased GMC
Leasing a new GMC or Buick has its perks and advantages. You get to drive a new vehicle every few years, enjoy the latest style, design, and tech, and you don’t have to worry about the maintenance required on an older vehicle. Once you’ve decided to lease a new GMC or Buick, Reliable Buick GMC makes the return process easy.
Once it’s time to start considering your options for a new vehicle, GMC’s lease return program will notify you when your lease is coming to an end and will help you find your next GMC or Buick.
A lease return with GMC or Buick typically starts 90-120 days before the end of the leased vehicle contract. This process is helpful in determining what repairs may be covered under the vehicle’s manufacturer warranty and also what suggested repairs will help you minimize your out-of-pocket expenses. First, you will be contacted by the leasing company to set up an inspection appointment. They typically can come to your home or to your office for this inspection. Next, the inspection will consist of looking for any excessive wear and tear to the vehicle, including excessive wear on the tires, tears and stains on the upholstery that can’t be repaired, cracked glass greater than ½ inch in diameter in the windows and windshield, and any excessive dents and scratches to the exterior larger than 4 inches. Fewer than 4 dings per panel and less than 2 inches are acceptable. Depending on your pre-return inspection results, you may need to make some repairs to avoid lease-end fees.
When it comes time to return your vehicle, it doesn’t matter where you originally leased your vehicle, you are welcome to take it to any GMC or Buick dealership to return. At Reliable Buick GMC, we are lease return experts and can make the process quick and smooth.
