Please be advised that leasing banks will charge you a Lease Termination Fee. You may also be charged for excess mileage above your contracted terms and/or any excessive wear and tear. Any such charges are not levied by Rudy Luther Toyota, but rather by the leasing bank (Toyota Financial). Please also know that you will remain as the registered owner until the leasing bank re-sells the vehicle to another consumer. This re-sale process can take several months.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Do I have to return my Toyota to the dealer that I originally leased from?
A: No, you can return your Toyota lease to Rudy Luther Toyota no matter where in the country the lease originated from.

Q: Should I have a final inspection completed by AutoVIN Inspection Company prior to returning my lease to Rudy Luther Toyota?
A: Yes, while we can look at your vehicle to give you advice on what you may be charged for if you turn your vehicle in to Toyota Financial, AutoVIN (the company that Toyota uses for inspections) makes the final determination on excess wear and use charges you will be responsible.  The AutoVIN inspection can be completed up to 60 days prior to lease maturity.

Q: How much will it cost me if I am over my original contracted miles?
A: Typically, it is between $0.15 & $0.20 per excess mile on most Toyota vehicles; however you can refer to your original contract for exact excess mileage costs.

Q: What do I need to bring when I return my Toyota?
A: Both sets of keys, books (navigation disk and cargo cover if equipped).

Q: For what will I be charged?
A: An itemized list will be provided to you by AutoVin Inspection Company.  If you have your inspection done prior to the actual turn-in date, you have the opportunity to have repairs completed prior to turn-in.  Rudy Luther Toyota may be able to help with repairs for a lesser amount.

Q: Is there a lease termination fee charged at the end-of-the-lease?
A: Toyota leases, like most leases, charge a disposition fee if the vehicle is turned in at the end.  In some cases, if Rudy Luther Toyota purchases your vehicle prior to the end of the lease and/or you lease or purchase another new Toyota, the disposition fee is waived.

Q: Is it possible to get a new Toyota and terminate my current lease early?
A: Occasionally there are programs available from Toyota Financial to terminate your lease a few months early if you buy or lease a new Toyota. Sometimes lease customers even have equity in their current lease, depending on the current market value.  We can help determine what your options are.
