120 Days Out
Once you hit about 120 days out from the end of your lease, now is the perfect time for you to seriously consider the options that you have to choose from. The first option here is to get a completely new Ford model when your lease is up. Whether that means buying or leasing, that’s up to you! You just have to know that you are responsible for any additional excess wear on your leased model, along with all of the mileage that goes beyond the contract. Another option to consider is purchasing the current Ford model that you have been driving around in. We know that you have most likely gotten attached, which is why now might be a good time to go all in, and work with our finance team to just keep your Ford around forever instead of turning it in! The final option is to simply return your leased Ford, and then move on! Every choice is right for someone, and you still have time to figure it out.
90 Days Out
Once you hit the 90-day mark, you really need to focus on preparing your vehicle for the return if you don’t end up purchasing it. Step 1 of this process is to assess the wear and use that you have put it through, which includes things like the mileage you have put it through, and if there are any issues that need to be addressed at some point. You’ll also have to go through a lease-end inspection, which is a complimentary pre-inspection that can be done within sixty days of the lease-end date. Finally, if repairs do need to be done, they need to be completed before you return your vehicle. Allow our service team to help you out there!
60 Days Out
You’re two months away from the lease-end agreement! It’s at this point where you really have to decide what you want to do next. If you want to get a new Ford, now would be an excellent time to stop by our dealership and see what options we have available to you. This is a great opportunity to take them out for test drives to figure out what suits you. However, if you simply want to return your ride, make sure you complete the checklist necessary to meet all of the requirements. We’ll be here to answer further questions.
