Lease Buyouts for Mazda Vehicles in Columbia, SC

There are many benefits to leasing a Mazda: you don’t need to worry about maintenance costs, you have a built-in service center with factory-trained professionals and if the car doesn’t feel exactly right, you can upgrade in a couple of years once your lease is up. However, the other benefit of leasing is that, if you decide that the vehicle you are driving is perfect, you have the option to purchase the vehicle at the end of your lease. If you choose to purchase it, your lease buyout will only be for the amount remaining on the total price of the vehicle, taking your monthly lease payments into consideration. By working with our Mazda finance department in Columbia, SC, we will be able to work with you to determine a buyout amount and payment plan that fit within your budget.

How to Calculate a Lease Buyout

Typically, the buyout amount for a leased vehicle will be available on your monthly statement, taking several factors into account including remaining payments towards the terms of your lease, the residual value of the vehicle and, in some cases, a purchasing fee. If this figure isn’t available to you, there are a few ways you can figure out exactly how much a buyout might be for your car. A copy of your lease contract should be handy within your files, or by contacting the dealership, which will have the estimated value of your vehicle at the end of the term listed. For a figure that is more realistic based on the wear-and-tear of the car, you can enter pertinent information into our Kelley Blue Book trade value calculator, which can generate an estimate to be confirmed at our dealership. Once you have both of these figures, compare them to see which is higher. If your actual value is higher than the residual value, you’ll be able to get your car for a great deal; if not, there is likely some wiggle room to negotiate. Two external factors to take into consideration are sales tax, which may vary based on where you live, and registration fees, which can be found through your local DMV. 

What’s the Difference Between Buying My Lease Out at the End of Lease or Early?

You can buy out your lease at any time, but there is a benefit to waiting out till the end of your contract. Because your vehicle may be worth more than its residual value, there is room for you to negotiate a deal with our team that works out in your favor, getting yourself a great deal on a vehicle you already know you love. If you try to negotiate a buyout early, with plenty of time on the lease, there’s less room to make a deal. The dealer will know the current mileage of the vehicle and whether or not more wear and tear than what was agreed upon has been sustained.
