Returning Car at End of Lease

I have a GMC Terrain and the lease is up this year. At the end of the lease I think there is a charge of $595 for something when I turn it in. My friend told me that I don’t have to pay that fee if I lease another car. Is that true? Can I purchase another GM car instead of a GMC say a Cheve and not have to pay that fee? Is there a time limit from when you return the leased car till you lease another and not pay the fee?

yes, easier if you go to a dealership that has gmc and chevy in it

PM ChevyPhil, he’s the guru of chevy leases.

The GMC disposition fee is $495 in pretty much every state.

@adamcar - I know this is an old post but are you aware of the latest details regarding the early turn-in for a chevy lease?
where can we find similar info for any promotions similar to the one you posted before?

Still the same. If you buy or lease another vehicle through GM Financial, they will waive the turn in fee plus up to $500 excess mileage plus up to $500 excess wear.

You can turn the lease in anytime you want as long as all the payments have been made. Or you can sell or trade the vehicle in at any time and remove GM Financial from the equation altogether. Call GM Financial for the lease payoff quote.

thanks @adamcar for the details… I’m considering a purchase this time - do I need to finance my new car thru GMFinancial to be eligible for this? My current lease is indeed thru GMFinancial and I’m due 3 more payments…


Correct. If you finance through anyone other than GMF, you’ll have to pay dispo fee + damage waiver would not apply.
