Up-front Education for Your End-of-Lease Experience

A great lease experience begins by understanding your end-of-lease options.

Sometimes a great adventure starts by looking down the road to see where you want to be and knowing what to expect when you arrive. Leasing a vehicle is just like that, a predictable yet freeing experience.

As a Stellantis Financial Services (SFS) lease customer, your predictable yet freeing experience has the added value of a team that believes in going the extra mile to ensure you know exactly what to expect when the lease term ends.

Customers empowered with the knowledge of what to expect throughout the life of their lease are more apt to fully enjoy the rewards of a “smart money” decision such as vehicle leasing. After all, who wouldn’t want the advantages of driving the latest style and most technologically up-to-date model minus the worries of maintenance costs an older car may require?

120-180 days from lease end. Let’s start planning!

A stress-free lease-end experience starts with planning ahead. You can expect to receive an end of lease package in the mail from SFS when you are 180 days from lease end. This will contain important information about your end of lease.

Once you are closer to 120 days from you lease end, the SFS Lease Team will reach out to help guide you through the process, share the latest vehicle information, review end-of-lease options, and inform you of any available new vehicle incentives. This will allow plenty of time for you to weigh your options, schedule a few test drives with your dealership, and experience the latest version of what you are currently leasing or any other Stellantis vehicles you may be considering. Keep in mind that your needs may be different than they were at the beginning of your current Stellantis lease, and Stellantis has a model that suits every lifestyle and dream you have.

Consider what features you prefer in a vehicle, schedule your final test drive, and enjoy your Stellantis vehicle. The following ideas can help get you started:

1.) How many miles do you drive?

a. annually

b. monthly

c. weekly

2.) Type of travel

a. highway miles

b. inner city “stop-and-go” traffic


a. recreation

b. work

c. daily driver

1.) Safety

a. adaptive cruise control

b. electronic stability control

2.) Performance

a. engine

b. handling abilities

3.) Appearance

a. sporty

b. classic

4.) Convenience

a. remote keyless entry

b. remote start

5.) Fuel efficiency

a. high mileage

b. hybrid

c. all-electric vehicle

Perhaps you might even consider a new type of vehicle that you haven’t driven before such as a truck, Jeep®, minivan, SUV, or muscle car. You may even take this opportunity to try out a Hybrid or EV. Either way, you have options, and you know what to expect.

That’s peace of mind, and that’s always a great feeling!
