Return Your Leased Audi near Washington, D.C.


It's been a great couple of years in your prized Audi, but now the end date on your lease agreement is drawing near, and you'll have some difficult decisions to make soon. If you're not sure what to do when the lease on your Audi is up, turn to the financing experts at our Audi dealership near Washington, D.C., for assistance. Regardless of where you initially leased your Audi, we're happy to advise and guide you through the lease-end process to ensure there's no interruption to you daily driving experience. When you're within six months of your lease's expiration date, give us a call or stop by to discuss what's next.


When your contract comes to a close, you have several lease-end options to choose from:


Upgrade from your current leased Audi to a new Audi.

If your lease-end date is quickly approaching and you're not quite ready to give up the luxury of driving an Audi, let the team at Audi Bethesda be your resource.    This option is perfect for those who know leasing is right for their lifestyle, but are ready to park a new car or SUV in their driveway. We have plenty of brand-new Audi models available in our showroom for you to test-drive at any time, and we're always running specials on the latest and greatest models.  You can either trade in your leased Audi for a new model, or chose Audi Bethesda as the final vehicle drop off location.  Audi Owner Loyalty Incentives may apply on your subsequent transaction, your disposition fee is waived when you stay with the brand, and Audi may waive your security deposit.


Purchase or refinance your leased Audi.

When you're not ready to part with the Audi you've been driving, we can help facilitate a change in ownership.   Audi Bethesda can be your agent to work with the leasing company and Department of Motor Vehicles to retrieve title, render pay-off funds to the leasing company, return your existing tags ( Maryland customers only) and generate a new title and tags.

You may choose to use your own funds, your lien check, or take advantage of our lending sources to satisfy the balance on your lease.

You will have access to extended warranty options, Maintenance Packages and all other Audi Suite products you see of value during your continued ownership period. 

When exercising  this option, any mileage in excess of the originally contracted perimeter, or excessive wear and damages will no longer be a factor for VW in terms of potential penalties to you.

Audi Bethesda assesses a $595 - lease buy out fee, and a processing fee of $499 - on each buy out transactionhowever, please note, that involving a dealer to assist with your buy out is not a requirement.   A transfer of funds to VW Leasing and release of title to you, and subsequent tag and title process can be handled by any Audi customer directly with VW and your local DMV.

A new inspection is most always required on your Audi, to facilitate this change of ownership, and can be done by your dealer, or any local inspection station.



Extend your current lease.

If you've come to love your Audi and aren't quite ready to part with it, but also aren't ready to commit to purchasing it outright, Audi Financial Services can discuss extending your lease. They can be reached at (866) 277-8191, and we are happy to make that call with you with the help of our business office.

We understand that there  pros and cons to every option on this list. This choice gives you the flexibility to take the extra time you need.


Add miles to your lease agreement.

If you're interested in extending your lease but you're running out of mileage allotment per original contract, you can contact Audi Financial Services at that time to purchase additional miles.

During the half way point of your lease, Audi takes a proactive approach and contacts its customers with additional mileage purchase offers.


Return your leased Audi.

If you don't want to keep your Audi at the end of your lease, and you're not interested in driving a new one, a lease end inspection is required, and the disposition fee will become due. This fee is indicated on your original lease contract, and will be billed to you after your vehicle return.

In addition, the Inspector will assess the condition of your vehicle, and take an inventory of items that should be returned with the vehicle, and then assess the total, if any additional charges, due to VW Credit.

To schedule your lease end inspection, please call (844) 889-8529.

AFS will have contacted you well prior to the end of your lease as well, to determine what your intentions may be as you approach the end of your contract term, and to set up an inspection at that time.

The day you drop your Audi off at an Audi facility, a final odometer reading will be taken, number of keys, floor mats and owner's manual will be noted, and a final document will be signed by both you as well as the receiving dealer.



Get in touch with the team at Audi Bethesda about six months before your lease ends, and we'll work together to decide which of these choices makes the most sense for you.

Please contact the business office at 240-762-5731, we are happy to help.
