How Do I Return a Buick or GMC Lease in Bay City, MI?

The process is simple. If your GMC lease contract is coming due in the next few months, you'll want to start thinking about your three primary lease-end options:

  1. Turning in your leased vehicle and upgrading to a new Buick or GMC
  2. Purchasing your leased vehicle for the agreed-upon value stated in the contract
  3. Returning your leased vehicle and walking away

As you review each alternative in detail, be sure to schedule a trade-in appraisal before your Buick lease-end date approaches. And remember that all these options are potentially viable GMC lease return solutions -- the right choice for you depends on your specific needs and budget. That said, let's dive into why trading up to a new Buick or GMC is such a particularly compelling choice.

Trading In & Trading Up to a New Buick or GMC

Upgrading from your current lease to a new car is one of the most popular lease-end options at our local GMC dealership. Why? In short, equity. When you sign a new Buick lease with one of our GM finance specialists, the contract will include what's known as the residual value. This figure is what the car is predicted to be worth at the end of the lease term. Even if the car is worth less or more than the stated residual value at the lease-end date, this figure is the basis for your lease buyout price or trade-in value.

Today's historic market conditions for used cars in Michigan mean that car values have gone up over the past few years. If you're a lessee, this means that your Buick SUV or GMC truck is likely worth more than its residual value, something you can quickly check using our trade-in value calculator. Your car's equity -- the positive difference between its residual value and market value -- can then be used toward the down payment of one of the new trucks and SUVs for sale at our Bay City GMC dealership. In other words, the equity of your leased vehicle can help you pay less for a new GMC Sierra or Buick Enclave near Saginaw.
