LEASE-END

Kia Finance has provided leases to millions of Kia drivers. Through servicing so many customers and their cars, we’ve come to precisely understand what’s required to efficiently close a lease. From that, we created this lease-end overview with all the information and resources you’ll need, including:

  • The steps to getting a new Kia or keeping your current one
  • A simple to-do list to follow if you choose to turn in your vehicle
  • Our dynamic Self-Assessment tool which makes identifying potential excess wear and use charges a snap

To remind you of when you need to take action, we’ll mail you a Lease-End Kit four months before your contract maturity date. Or you can download a print-friendly version.

So, how will you wrap up your lease?

You have a big decision ahead: whether to drive off in a new Kia, buy your current leased vehicle, or just return it. Whatever you choose, we’ll be with you all along the way.
