Vehicle inspection guide

Here are some simple steps to help you complete your lease return:

 

  1. Schedule your complimentary, but required, vehicle inspection.

    Before your vehicle's return date, simply contact the Alliance Inspection Management Center (AIM) at 800-253-9026, or visit https://selfschedule.aiminspect.com to schedule a complimentary, but required, vehicle inspection. The inspection takes approximately 30 minutes, and can be done at your Nissan Dealer, your home, or your place of business. An AIM, certified inspector will provide an assessment copy of chargeable wear and use (if any), along with a Notice of Option to make repairs prior to return.


  2. Decide if you want to make repairs.

    If excess wear and use is discovered during your inspection, you have the option to repair your vehicle before returning. You may want to discuss the results with your Nissan dealership or your insurance agent to determine the best course of action.

     
  3. Make a vehicle-return appointment with your Nissan Dealership.

    Your vehicle must be returned to an authorized Nissan Dealership.  When you're ready, call your dealership to schedule an appointment. While at the dealership, you are required to complete a Federal Odometer/Lease Termination Statement.

    If applicable, you will receive an End-of-Lease liability statement four to six weeks after the vehicle has been returned to your Nissan Dealer. The statement will detail any current fees/charges remaining, which may include a disposition fee of up to $395. You may receive subsequent bills after this liability statement that may include, but are not limited to property tax, parking tickets; toll violations, etc. that occurred during the time you were in possession of the leased vehicle.

    To learn more about the vehicle inspection process (including conducting your own inspection) and to see examples of normal and excess wear and use, please view the Wear and Use Guide.

Owner loyalty offers

When it’s time to return your current vehicle, we want you to stay in the Nissan family. To thank you for buying or leasing another Nissan, NMAC will waive up to $500 in excess wear-and-use charges and your $395 disposition fee, if applicable, on your current NMAC lease. 

*Offer good from 120 days prior to, or 30 days after, customer’s termination of lease.  Lessee must purchase or lease a new, unused, and unregistered Nissan or INFINITI vehicle, financed through Nissan Motor Acceptance Company (NMAC) or INFINITI Financial Services (IFS). Offer available to the current lessee or individuals residing in the same household with proof of residency.  Customers must satisfy all obligations to NMAC in accordance with their current lease agreement (including remaining payments, charges for excess mileage and/or wear-and-use, if applicable, and all other fees). The excess wear-and-use waiver does not apply to excess mileage fees. Lessee is also responsible for maintenance and repairs. See participating dealer for complete details.

Option 2: Keep your Nissan

If you purchase your vehicle, you can avoid excess mileage, wear and use charges. You will not be responsible for any costs other than the predetermined purchase option price and the incidental charges stated in your Nissan lease contract or required by law. These may include sales tax, vehicle registration, a purchase option fee, etc. Certain state and local laws may require you to pay a smog or safety inspection fee, etc.
