Kia Finance has provided leases to millions of Kia drivers. Through servicing so many customers and their cars, we’ve come to precisely understand what’s required to efficiently close a lease. From that, we created this lease-end overview with all the information and resources you’ll need, including:

• The steps to getting a new Kia or keeping your current one

• A simple to-do list to follow if you choose to turn in your vehicle

• Our dynamic Self-Assessment tool, which makes identifying potential excess wear and use charges a snap

We'll mail you a Lease-End Kit four months before your contract maturity date to remind you to take action. You can also download a print-friendly version.

lease end

So, how will you wrap up your lease?

You have a big decision ahead: whether to drive off in a new Kia, buy your current leased vehicle, or just return it. Whatever you choose, we'll be with you all along the way.


Lease or Purchase a New Kia

First, explore the newest models by visiting our model lineup. Then, build out and price your perfect Kia. Next, schedule a test drive with your Kia dealer, where you can also see if you're eligible to save money with a Loyalty Reward. From there, complete each of the steps below to close out your lease.


Perform a Self-assessment

Before returning your vehicle, identify excess wear and use and get an estimate of potential charges with our easy-to-use process. Self-Assessment provides an estimate only and is not binding. Final wear and use charges will be determined through a formal inspection after vehicle turn-in. Estimates do not reflect state sales tax.


Kickoff Your Lease-end

These are the things you should do during the last few months of your lease to be best prepared to turn in your Kia:

• Identify any potential excess wear and use through a Self-Assessment

• Make necessary repairs to avoid any excess wear and use charges

• Get specific details on your options by calling us at
at 256-442-3232.

• Visit the KMF Advantage page to see the benefits of leasing again
or purchasing with us

• Schedule a Turn-In Appointment at your Kia Dealer
