Ohio Honda Lease Return Center & Guide

Honda Ohio Lease Return Guide - Germain Honda of Dublin

Important notice regarding inventory shortages and lease turn-in:

Due to the current global situation, the automotive supply chain has experienced significant disruptions and delays. This has caused inventory levels of new vehicles to remain in short supply. It’s our suggestion that you begin to consider your options up to a year in advance prior to your lease-end date. This can help secure the availability of your next vehicle and help you prevent any interruptions to the driving experience you’ve grown to love.

Reserving your next vehicle in advance is a great way to enjoy the exact features and options that you want while simultaneously planning ahead for the future. Better still, your current vehicle likely has positive equity that can be applied towards your next Honda lease (see dealer for details, restrictions apply). Our team is standing by to answer any questions you may have about your current lease status, reserving your next vehicle, or extending your current lease to plan ahead for the future.

If your lease-end date is getting close, it’s a smart idea to begin to consider all of your available options. Our team at the Ohio Lease Return Center at Germain Honda of Dublin has created this helpful reference guide that explains exactly how the lease return process works along with some helpful tips to help make your experience as smooth as possible. You’ll have all the knowledge you need to make an informed decision about your next Honda lease.

Before Your Return

Honda Financial Services recommends that you schedule a pre-termination inspection at least 60 days before your lease-end date. This inspection is available at no charge to you and is performed by a licensed inspection company. Especially important if your vehicle has exceeded your contracted mileage or if it has incurred excessive wear and use. Use the Schedule Inspection Online link at hondafinancialservices.com or call (800) 340-4080 to schedule your inspection. Here are a few tips to help make your inspection go smoothly:

  • Return original headrests and jump seats (if applicable)
  • Remove your personal belongings
  • Clean your vehicle both inside and out
