If you’re still wondering whether buying your lease or leasing a new Lexus is a better choice for your lifestyle, take a look at this quick comparison chart that lays out a few important factors to consider:
If You Buy Your Lease
If You Lease a New Lexus
|Customization||You’ve wanted to customize, wrap, and make modifications to this car for a while now. Go ahead and customize it to your heart’s content!||You like how Lexus built it already and outside of adding some Lexus Window Tint or another Lexus OEM part, you’re happy with your Lexus being in factory condition.|
|Warranty||You will either need to purchase an extended coverage contract with our Finance Consultants when you buy out your lease or you’re perfectly fine knowing your car is outside of the original factory warranty.||Take the guess work out of car ownership. You’re always covered under the factory warranty and can pre-plan your vehicle expenses.|
|Benefits from Lexus Financial Services||Regular finance incentives + you can purchase an extended coverage plan at Lexus of White Plains. If you return your lease and decide to go with a different manufacturer, you will be charged a disposition fee.||The disposition fee is waived, your new lease includes GAP coverage, you get to take advantage of lower rates for being a returning Lexus customer, and Tax Benefits may apply for businesses (or you may lease during a time that LFS is offering Tax Credits – ask your sales consultant for details on this benefit).|
- Q: Should I have a pre-inspection completed prior to my lease maturing?
A: If you decide to go ahead and turn in your vehicle rather than purchase it outright, we encourage you to schedule your complimentary, official pre-inspection 15-60 days prior to your lease maturity date. This inspection will take place with a third party that will assess your vehicle on behalf of Lexus Financial Services. The inspectors will come to your home, work, or other preferred location for your convenience. To schedule an inspection, call AutoVin at (855) 90-MY-LFS or schedule online here.
If any issues are discovered that may be considered “excess wear” by LFS, you may choose to schedule a service appointment with us, where we can fix the issues prior to your vehicle turn-in.
Have questions on what is considered Excessive Wear and Use on a Lexus Lease?
- Interior condition: one or more cuts, tears, burns, or stains that are larger than a credit card
- Missing keys, remotes, mats, tonneau covers, books, or other accessories that came with your new Lexus
- Inoperative or broken parts and equipment
- Modifications made to the vehicle not outlined in the lease
- Damaged tires or wheels
- Tires that do not match or meet the manufacturer’s guidelines

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 Lexus of White Plains, but rather by the leasing bank. Don’t forget that you will remain as the registered owner until the leasing bank re-sells the vehicle to someone else and this re-sale process can take several months.
- Q: What do I need to bring and what should I expect at the Dealership when I return my Lexus?
A: Once you arrange a date with our team at Lexus of White Plains, remove all of your personal belongings from the glove compartment, center console, and seat pockets. You should also clear the navigation system of all saved addresses, erase programmable garage door codes, and delete all saved phone numbers. Then, make sure the following equipment is present in the vehicle:
- All keys and key fobs
- Owner’s manual
- Entertainment system headphones
- Other accessories included in the lease package
- Original manufacturer wheels at the time of the lease
- Power charging cables for electric vehicles
The final step in the lease return process is finalizing all of the paperwork. Our sales team will assist you in completing the odometer statement and lease return paperwork. Please keep in mind that the original lessee must be present to sign any required paperwork.
- Q: What’s Next?
A: After you’ve turned in your leased vehicle to Lexus of White Plains, you may receive a Lease End Invoice mailed to you by Lexus Financial Services that will include any unpaid payments, late fees, and miscellaneous charges. If you had a security deposit, it will be returned to your home address via check. It will be used to first pay any Lease End Invoice charges, if applicable. If you make automatic payments through Lexus Financial Services, make sure to remember to cancel electronic payments.
