Audi Lease-end Options

You may be approaching the end of your lease, and we hope that the recent years with your Audi have exceeded your expectations. We look forward to continuing to build our relationship into the future, so let us help make it an easy transition.

End of Lease Options

At a loss for what to do at the end of your Audi lease? Let Audi Lafayette help you explore your options.

So, you're nearing the end of your Audi lease. You've cherished your Audi vehicle over the last few years, enjoyed its full potential and responsibly maintained it to the best of your ability. But now, as the months tick down to weeks or even days before the end of your lease, you find yourself at a crossroads, wondering what to do next. But don't fret, because the end of your lease can afford you some fantastic opportunities, and we want to help you take advantage of all your options here at Audi Lafayette.

We're proud to accept all Audi vehicles at the end of a lease and offer help on financing, even if you didn't lease your Audi from us! But most importantly, we want to help explain your end of lease options to you, so that you can find the right choice for you, your family, and your future plans.

Option 1: Buy your Lease Audi

At Audi Lafayette, it's pretty safe to say that we love our Audi vehicles, and if you've leased one, chances are you do too! So, if you find that you're at the end of your lease, but not quite done driving your Audi vehicle, guess what? You can buy it! That's right, one of the great things about leasing an Audi is that you agree to a buy-out price at lease signing, so if you want to own your leased Audi outright, all you'll be responsible for is:

  • The agreed upon purchase price
  • All outstanding unpaid charges - late charges, past due payments, personal property taxes, and traffic or parking violation fees are among the most common.
  • Sales or use tax, if applicable under state or local law
  • The purchase option fee
  • Any title and registration fees required by the DMV

Option 2: Return your Audi

So, you've driven your Audi and enjoyed it, but now you want to move on to other automotive opportunities? No worries! The freedom to simply return your vehicle rather than go through the hassle of selling it privately is one of the many great things about leasing an Audi vehicle, and we'll happily handle that return here. Just remember to do these four things before you hand over the keys.

  • Remove all personal items from the vehicle
  • Clean your car and inspect the interior - you will be responsible for any lease-end charges on your lease-end bill relating to excess mileage or excess wear-and-tear
  • Provide the vehicle's maintenance records
  • Place the Owner's Manual in the glove box

Once you've completed these four steps, feel free to bring your leased vehicle to our Lafayette, LA Audi dealership to return it.

Option 3: Buy or Lease a new Audi

Of course, the other side to being able to return your leased Audi vehicle is being free to purchase or lease a new Audi, hassle-free. Once you've turned over you leased Audi to us, you'll be free to explore all the latest and greatest of the Audi vehicle lineup. And with our comprehensive selection, you'll have a lot to choose from in our inventory, whether you want to make a more long-term commitment to purchase, or want to pick up another Audi lease to enjoy a new model for the next few years. Whatever you choose, you can rest assured that our talented Audi Lafayette finance team will help to ensure you get the right vehicle at the right price.
