Leasing a luxury car is exciting. You get to drive something stylish for a while, then bring it back a few years later, and possibly lease another new car. If your lease is ending soon, though, you're probably wondering how to return a car at the end of a lease.

Fortunately, Jaguar Parsippany put together this helpful breakdown, so drivers in Parsippany, Morristown, and Newark, NJ, will know what to do and what to expect.

End of Lease Options

Lease terms are usually around two or three years long. While that may seem like awhile when you first agree to the lease, those 24 or 36 months can fly by. So, what are your options if your lease term is almost up? Well, that depends on what you want to do next.

One of the great things about leasing is that you'll have options. If you've grown attached to the sedan or SUV that you've been driving, you could decide to buy it. It's easy to move from leasing to financing, and our finance center will be happy to walk you through it.

Most drivers choose to return the car and start a new lease, though. It's an exciting way to essentially upgrade every few years. Before you bring the car back, there are a few things you should be aware of, though.

What to do Before Returning the Car

Let's go back a few years to when you were first discussing leasing. When you agreed to your lease, there were certain terms that you agreed to. These usually include keeping everything in good condition.

Another common caveat is that you won't be able to add any accessories or customize the car.  It's also important to pay attention to how many miles you're putting on the car throughout your lease. Exceeding the agreed upon number of miles can sometimes result in extra fees at the end of your lease.

All of these terms are put in place because you won't have the car forever. In just a few short years, it'll be back on the dealership lot, so it's important to make sure it looks as good as new and still has low mileage.

Getting ready to return your car really starts by knowing the terms of your lease from the beginning. Make sure you're clear on all the specific terms of your lease agreement before you hit the road.

Now, let's come back to the end of your lease. It's important to make sure your sedan or SUV looks good and is up on its routine maintenance. Get any wear and tear or service problems taken care of before you return the car.
