If you have been driving around Riverhead in a leased Subaru for the last few years, then you are well aware of how convenient a lease is. Now that the lease is about to expire, you do not even have to worry about selling the vehicle. In fact, you can start to think about your next new vehicle knowing that you simply have to turn the existing one back in. At the same time, you will want to prepare for the end of your Subaru lease for the process to go smoothly. To begin, you should know that you can return your lease to Riverhead Bay Subaru even if you did not get the car from us. It's that easy. Here is what you should be doing now to prepare for that day.

You Will Want To Have an Inspection
You can expect to receive a notice in the mail from Subaru a few months before the end of your lease. Within this letter, you will get details about scheduling a free inspection of your vehicle. You should take advantage of this ahead of time. It gives you the time that you need to make any necessary repairs on your own before you turn the lease back in. Ordinary wear and tear will not count against you, so do not worry about that. However, anything above what is considered to be normal will need to be corrected before you can officially end the lease

Make an Inquiry

Repair Anything That Needs Fixing

With that inspection report in hand, you now have a few options. If nothing needs to be corrected, then you are in good shape. However, anything that needs repairing should be completed ahead of time. If it is minor, then you may be able to do it on your own. If not, you can either have an auto body shop make the repairs for you or just ask Riverhead Bay Subaru in Riverhead to handle it when you turn the lease back in. If you do the repairs ahead of time around Long Island, then you can always ask for another inspection to have those items removed from the report. 

You Can Always Buy Your Leased Subaru

There are many good reasons to buy your leased Subaru once you've come to the end of your lease. You may have fallen in love with it to the point that you can't envision parting ways just yet. You may also find that you have driven the car far beyond Long Island on multiple occasions. If so, you might have exceeded your allowed number of miles around Sayville by quite a bit. Rather than paying the penalty, you could just buy the car and keep it. In your lease contract, there is a residual value stated. Just pay it, and the Subaru is yours. 

Make Your Turn-In Appointment

When the time comes to turn your leased Subaru in, it is recommended that you make an appointment at Riverhead Bay Subaru, ensuring that we have someone ready to take care of you the moment that you arrive. One final inspection will be performed and a bill prepared for you. At that point, your obligation is over, and you are free to get on with your day.
