Steps for Returning Your Leased Kia Vehicle

The return process of your Kia lease may seem complicated, but it is relatively simple and can be completed by following the steps highlighted below!


Perform a Vehicle Self-Inspection

Using the Wear and Tear Estimation Tool shown here, you can perform a Vehicle Self-Inspection. This will help show you if you have any excess wear and tear beyond what would be classified as “normal”. If this is the case, then you will likely be responsible for additional charges. You also have the option of contacting our Lease-End Advisors to schedule a complimentary pre-termination inspection as well. If you have excess wear and tear, then you should get them repaired as soon as possible. Quite often, the repairs will cost much less than the charges you receive after returning the leased vehicle.
