Buy Your Lease

One option you have at the end of your lease is to purchase that vehicle you've grown to love over the past several years. If you enjoy the driving dynamics, space, and features of the Honda model you're leasing, our finance experts can work with you to get a loan agreement worked up that makes your previously leased model officially yours. This option is often ideal for customers that want to keep driving what they've been leasing.

Purchase a Different Model or Walk Away

Perhaps you enjoy the benefits that come with leasing but would like to swap out your current ride to lease another new Honda model. If this sounds like you, you'll be glad to know that it's easy to move from one Honda lease to the next. Once you've picked out a body style and configuration that matches your daily driving needs, our team in the Honda Finance Center can help you get a new lease agreement with a vehicle and payment plan you want.

Purchase a Different Model or Walk Away

If you're ready to part ways with your current leased Honda model but aren't interested in leasing another option from our lot, your last option is to purchase a new Honda vehicle or quality pre-owned model from our lot. And for the drivers that simply want to walk away at the end of their lease, Ray Laks Honda will gladly help you end your lease regardless if you plan to invest in another car, truck, SUV, or van from our dealership.

New Honda Inventory

Does My Lease Need to be Inspected?

One of the steps in finalizing the end of your lease is having your vehicle inspected. When you arrive to return your leased vehicle to Ray Laks Honda, our highly skilled technicians will thoroughly inspect your vehicle to check for wear and tear, repairs made, mileage, and other crucial factors. While there are rarely any issues found, this inspection will give you a heads up if any repairs are  needed to avoid additional charges.

It's helpful to schedule a visit with our Honda Service Center in Buffalo a few months ahead of your lease end so that you have plenty of time to make any last-minute fixes. Plus, you can trust our technicians to provide honest and accurate feedback on your leased vehicle.

How Can I Exchange for a New Honda Lease?

Would you like to experience the latest tech upgrades and performance enhancements found on a new Honda model? If so, you'll be glad to know that you can return your lease at the end of the term and lease a newer, better Honda model from Ray Laks Honda. First, you'll want to ensure that you bring all the necessary items for a successful return, like the keys, owner's manual, repair records, and a vehicle inspection report.

Then, the next step after you've ended your current lease is selecting the next model you want to drive for a few years. From athletic cars to powerful trucks to spacious SUVs and vans, you'll find the right new Honda model at our dealership in no time. Here are some of the leading models you'll want to consider leasing:
