End of Lease Options

End of Lease

When your lease is at the end of its term, there are a few things to keep in mind as you prepare for what's next. Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation (NMAC) makes the process easy for you.

We'll be in touch with you as the end of your lease approaches. NMAC sends out letters prior to the end of your lease. The letters outline your options (see below) and include a wear-and-use guidebook. Of course we would like for you to lease or buy a new Nissan, however, you have three (3) options once you fulfill your lease obligations.


GET A NEW NISSAN

Turn in your current vehicle and lease or buy a new Nissan. Our Owner Loyalty Offers help make this an attractive option.

Visit our 2017 Nissan Model Lineup page for information on all of Nissan's new vehicles.

Vehicle Inspection

Before your vehicle's return date, visit our dealership for a complimentary, but required, vehicle inspection. This inspection takes approximately 30 minutes, and can be done at our Service Center.

A certified inspector will provide an assessment copy of chargeable wear-and-use (if any), along with a Notice of Option to make repairs prior to return. If excess wear, and use, is discovered during your inspection, you have the option to repair your vehicle before returning. You may want to consult with your insurance agent to determine what is more beneficial.

Should your vehicle's condition change prior to its return due to repairs or additional damage, another inspection will be necessary. To schedule your re-inspection, please call our service center at 888-250-4294.

To learn more about the vehicle inspection process (including conducting your own inspection) and to see examples of Normal and Excess Wear and Use, please view the Wear and Use Guide.
