Kia Lease Return Checklist

Is it almost time for you to bring your lease back to the dealer? To make sure our neighbors in Frankfort, Lexington, and Nicholasville, KY, are fully prepared, the team of experts that you’ll find here at Car Town Kia has put together this simple checklist to help the entire process go as smoothly as possible.

1. Cancel Payments that Occur Automatically

Automatic payments having to do with your Kia vehicle that you’ll want to take care of might include the following:

  • Smartphone apps
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • Monthly payments

2. Have an Inspection Completed

Doing this allows you to see to it that the model is returned in the same condition as it was prior to being in your possession. Here are a few things you’ll want to do once this is done:

  • Repair any damages that were found
  • Have worn tires replaced
  • Clean the exterior and interior

3. Get Extra Costs Paid Off

Here are some examples of what these might be:

  • Costs due to mileage overages
  • Wear and damage expenses
  • Any additional fees

4. Clear Away Any Personal Items

Things that you’ll want to remove from the interior are listed below:

  • Loose change or cash
  • Clothes
  • Jewelry
  • Mail
  • Personal documents
  • Mobile device charger cords

5. Collect Items that Belong with the Kia Car

Return anything that may have been taken out of the model, such as the following:

  • Owner’s manuals
  • Floor mats
  • Tool kit
  • Spare tire

6. Gather the Last Remaining Items

This is the final step before returning your mode of transportation to the dealer. The things that you’ll want to have with you when you arrive at the dealer are as follows:

  • All keys
  • Model inspection report
  • Receipts for all repairs

Once everything is turned in, feel free to look over our diverse inventory to pinpoint the on-road companion that you’ll be leasing next.
