Lease Return Center

Even if you didn’t originate your lease at Surprise Honda in Arizona, we’re happy to walk you through your options for once your lease period as has ended.

Typically, you have three options for the end of a lease: You can purchase your leased vehicle, return the vehicle and lease new Honda, or you can turn in your leased vehicle. Whichever option you choose, the staff at Surprise Honda would be happy to guide you through the process.

Option 1: Return your Vehicle

You may choose this option for a number of reasons — cost, issues with the vehicle or the desire to buy or lease another vehicle. If you return your leased Honda to Surprise Honda, you can receive up to $350, no purchase necessary.

If you choose this option, here are the steps you’ll need to take before your lease-end date.

Two to three months before lease-end date: Get in touch with the staff at Surprise Honda to have the lease-end procedure explained. Our staff will provide you the phone number for a local facility where you can have your vehicle inspected and can answer any questions you may have about the process.

Two months prior to your lease-end date: At some point during the two months prior to returning your vehicle, you’ll need to arrange a free evaluation during which a technician will inspect your vehicle for wear, damage and and other things. The earlier you have the inspection performed, the more time you’ll have to address any needed repairs or anything else that may affect your liabilities. You will be issued a report that contains the findings of the inspection.

One week prior to lease-end date: Schedule a vehicle drop-off appointment and take the time to assemble the important documents listed in the next item.

At the end of your lease: Bring your clean vehicle to Surprise Honda with the following items:

  • Owner’s manual and maintenance records
  • Vehicle Return Receipt and Odometer Disclosure Statement
  • Vehicle Inspection Report
  • Receipts for any completed repairs
  • All keys and key fobs

Once your vehicle has been returned, inform Honda Financial Services of the return through its Turn-in Hotline at 1-800-351-6513. This call will:

  • Prompt the completion process of your account and stop monthly payment statements from being issued if all payments have been completed.
  • Alert you of any outstanding payments on your account. It is your responsibility to make sure they are paid.
  • You will be billed at a later date if any end-of-term liabilities apply.

Option 2: Return your Leased Honda and Purchase or Lease a New Honda

This is an appealing option because it allows you to upgrade to a new vehicle with improved features, safety equipment, appearance and other amenities without a huge change in monthly payment, insurance rates or other costs associated with owning a vehicle. If you return your leased Honda to Surprise Honda, you can receive up to $350, no purchase necessary.

If you choose this option, here are the steps you’ll need to take before your lease-end date.

Up to six months before your lease-end date: Begin reviewing what your vehicle options will be when it’s time to return your lease. Pay attention to when the latest new Honda will be announced and come in for a test drive when it’s convenient. We can help you test drive a vehicle and arrange lease-end options in the same trip.

Option 3: Purchase your Leased Vehicle

It’s easy to fall in love with a Honda, so if you’re not willing to return your vehicle at the end of a lease period, we don’t blame you. Luckily, it’s easy to transition from lessee to owner when you follow these steps:

Step 1 – Get a Payoff Quote: To learn your purchase amount, you can access Honda’s online Account Access system 24/7 or call the Express Payoff System at 1-800-708-6555.

If you request payoff information over the phone, you can request a written confirmation of your payoff quote with instructions and required documentation be mailed to you.

Step 2 – Notify us of Intent to Purchase: Contact the Lease Maturity Center to inform Honda that you intend to buy the vehicle when your lease is up.

Step 3 – Provide Payment and Required Documentation: Mail your full payment amount including applicable sales tax to Honda Finance Exchange (address listed below). Once payment is received and there is no outstanding balance on your account, you will be mailed the title. Please verify your current address with Honda Financial Services to make sure your title is received.

Federal law requires you to disclose the mileage before ownership can be transferred. To do this, submit a signed and dated Odometer Disclosure Statement.
