Returning Your Vehicle and Leasing a New Honda

Is it nearing the end of your lease? Follow these simple steps to trade in your vehicle for a new Honda.

Step 1:

Two months before, schedule a free vehicle inspection to evaluate wear and use and related charges, if applicable. Have the inspection done well in advance of returning your vehicle so you have time to take care of any needed repairs. Honda Leadership Leasing includes an Excess Wear and Use Waiver, but you will be responsible for any wear or use that exceeds the waiver. You will be responsible for any outstanding payments, excessive miles, and any other outstanding obligations specified in your lease agreement. You will receive a Vehicle Inspection Report following the inspection. Read more about Vehicle Inspection and Wear and Use Guidelines.

Schedule your vehicle inspection online by visiting SGS.

Step 2:
One week before call Honda City Chicago to schedule an appointment to return your vehicle
(888) 507-9472

Step 3:
On the day of your appointment, bring your vehicle to Honda City Chicago in clean condition with the following items:
  1. All vehicle keys
  2. Owner's Manual
  3. Any maintenance records
  4. Vehicle return receipt and Odometer Disclosure Statement
  5. Vehicle inspection report 

Step 4:
After you turn in your vehicle Contact Honda Financial Services (800) 708-6555 to inform them that you have returned your vehicle.

If all payments have been made the completion process will begin and you will no longer receive a regular monthly billing statement.

If you still have payments remaining on the account, you will be held responsible for making them.  If Honda City Chicago has agreed to make the final payments, please follow up with us to confirm they were made.

Any end of term liabilities will be billed at a later time.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
