Returning your lease

We’ve outlined what you can expect and the steps you need to take before you return your lease.


Step 1: Schedule your vehicle inspection

Your vehicle inspection will be carried out by AutoVIN on behalf of Volkswagen Finance. One of their representatives will call you within 60 days of the end of your lease to set up an appointment.

If you don’t hear from AutoVIN, contact them at 1-800-268-6639 to set up an appointment.

You can arrange to have your inspection during the day, at either your home or place of work. An AutoVIN representative will inspect your vehicle for any excess wear or damage*.

After the vehicle inspection, you will receive an inspection report.


Step 2: Schedule your vehicle return appointment

Once your vehicle is inspected and you’re in possession of the inspection report, contact us to begin your lease return. Schedule an appointment online or by calling us at (416) 741-7480


Step 3: Returning your vehicle

Your lease return appointment should only take about 15 minutes. The following items are required to complete your lease return:

Vehicle Ownership
All vehicle keys (including valet key)
Vehicle owner’s manual
Spare tire and tools
Navigation disc (if applicable)
Original wheels
Cargo cover (if applicable)
All headrests present
Any other accessories listed on the lease agreement
Please ensure you’re in possession of all items prior to your lease return appointment. A final inspection will be completed by Yorkdale Volkswagen upon receipt of the vehicle.

For more information please contact us at (416) 741-7480.

*To avoid potential Excess Wear and Tear charges, please ensure your vehicle has been maintained in good operating condition and appearance in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations in the Owner’s Manual and the Warranty and Maintenance Guide.
