End Of Lease Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when I turn in a leased Volvo?

Before the end of your lease, you will bring your leased Volvo back to us at Benton Volvo Cars in Grand Rapids MI and have it inspected. That's when you'll need to cover any expenses for excess damage or wear and tear. You will then turn over that Volvo to our dealership at the end of your lease contract.

Can I get out of a Volvo lease without a penalty?

You can get out of a lease early by paying the lease termination fee or checking for an early termination clause that will allow you to get out of the lease without paying that fee.

Is it better to get a car loan or a lease?

If you want to build up cash equity in the car you're buying, a car loan is the only way to do it. It's also the only way to ultimately own that Volvo. A car lease is better if you want a lower down payment and lower monthly payments.

What is the net capitalized cost in a lease?

The net capitalized cost is the final selling price of the vehicle. It's equal to the gross minus any rebates, incentives and upfront capital that you invested in the leased vehicle.

Can I trade in my leased car early for another car?

Yes, but if you return your Volvo too early, there will be an early termination fee and you will need to pay the that Volvo's residual value based on depreciation and interest.

The Volvo Protection Package Premier adds wheel locks, rubber floor mats, a plastic luggage mat, a stainless steel bumper cover and a first-aid hit to your vehicle. These features all work together to help keep your car clean, secure and undented.
