VW Lease Return Process

If you plan on turning in your vehicle at the end of your lease, whether you are getting a new Volkswagen or not, here's what to do next:

  1. The Inspection

    These inspections are free and they come to you - whether it be your home (someone 18 or older must be present), office, or our dealership. They're also a great way to receive a quick assessment of potential charges that you may owe at the end of your term. At this point, you'll have an opportunity to make repairs instead of being charged for them as excess wear.
