Buy Your Current Kia

Maybe you completely connected with the Kia you’d been leasing and don’t want to drive anything else. You can keep that current Kia and make it your own, purchasing it from its lease and thus giving you full ownership of the vehicle. Contact us here at 401 Dixie Kia so that we may walk you through the steps of the vehicle purchase transaction.

Return Your Current Kia

If you just want to give the vehicle back without purchasing it or selecting a new one, that’s more than okay, too. There’s a few steps to follow with this method, starting with receiving a vehicle inspection, getting any necessary repairs done, fulfilling any remaining financial obligations, then arranging a return appointment with us at 401 Dixie Kia.

Lease End To-Do List

While determining how you’d like to proceed after your current lease, there’s a few things on the lease-end to-do list that need to be completed to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible. These tips are largely related to both the inspection and return of your vehicle, including the following.

Prior to Your Inspection

  • Do a self-assessment of your Kia’s condition with the Kia self-assessment tool and checklist. This is to be done before the final third-party inspection.
  • Connect with us here at 401 Dixie Kia to get any needed repairs fixed. This aims to reduce the costs of wear and tear.
  • If you haven’t been contacted by AutoVIN Canada within 45 days before the end of your lease for an inspection, you need to reach out to them at 1-800-268-6639 or book an appointment online.

When You Return Your Vehicle

  • Make sure to remove all of your personal belongings, and delete any personal data off of the tech systems.
  • Provide any of the OEM items that came with the vehicle (keys, manuals, copy of ownership etc.), along with anything else that may have been provided upon initial lease.
  • Bring any maintenance or recall records.
  • Copies of any repair invoices after the post-vehicle inspection will need to be emailed with the VIN. Please advise with us at 401 Dixie Kia for proper procedure and destination.
  • Ensure any remaining financial obligations are settled.
  • Sign the vehicle return receipt, and get a copy for yourself.
