Lease-End Overview

You have a big decision ahead: whether to drive off in a new Kia, buy your current leased vehicle, or just return it.

Buy your Lease

If you are interested in purchasing your current lease, you can unlock special incentives and savings. When you choose to purchase your lease, you are also only paying for the value of it as if it’s a pre-owned car. This helps you unlock even further savings and allows you to enjoy the best value possible.


When you finance your vehicle, you’re buying it and will receive a range of impressive ownership benefits. Not only are you getting a sophisticated and reliable vehicle, but you’ll also be receiving an impressive warranty loaded with perks. Financing is a great option for anyone looking for long-term investment and has enough money to pay a decent upfront payment. Your monthly payments will be determined by the vehicle price, amount of your down payment and trade-in value, interest rate, and length of your term. Additional buying benefits include:

  • Less worry about your car’s condition
  • No limit on mileage
  • Full ownership of your vehicle
  • Factory warranty to cover major repairs


When you lease a vehicle, you’re only paying for the portion of the vehicle you use over the course of the lease. A lower down payment, or none at all, may also be possible. Leases generally only last 24 to 48 months which means you’ll always be getting the latest stylings, technology, and performance offerings. You can even trade-in your current vehicle for a lease and get the total value deducted on your overall monthly statement or use it as a down payment! So if you like to change things up or want to try out a different model every few years, leasing may be right for you. Additional leasing benefits include:

  • Payments are usually lower, compared to a purchase
  • Lower down payment
  • Opportunity to drive a new car every two to three years
  • Factory warranty to cover major repairs
