Six months before your end of lease: Now is the time to be researching new Acura models. Our Acura dealer in Glendale, CA, has great information about all of our new models so you can see what you would like to take out for a test-drive. Acura has the highest resale value of any luxury brand, so we can also start discussing ending your lease-end options early. You may be able to lease a new vehicle for close to the same payment you are paying now with no early termination penalty.
Dwight will contact you over the next few months to see if you have made any decisions regarding your next Acura. During the time of your lease term, we can arrange for a vehicle pre-inspection to help you evaluate any possible wear and tear related charges.
