  • Pick out a new car from our inventory.
  • Look over our new vehicle specials.
  • Per the Honda lease return policy, you’ll want to make an appointment for your return Honda lease return inspection sometime before the end of your lease. This gives you time to resolve any issues.
  • Fix what damage or other issues, if any, that pop up on your Honda release return inspection.
  • Pay any fees.
  • Sign the paperwork for your new lease and drive it home.
