You can no longer return your leased Honda to a rival dealership or a third-party company. As of July 1st, all leased Hondas must be returned to a certified Honda or Acura dealer. The brand says this change will ensure that it has enough of its own vehicles to sell to new and returning customers.
Honda is the latest car brand to enact this policy for the same reason. The car industry is reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic and the global chip shortage. New and used cars are in very high demand right now, but there aren’t enough chips available to make them.
Honda had to halt production at its North American plants earlier this year. But all of them were back on schedule in April. The brand has made some adjustments, though. Right now, all new Hondas only come with one key fob instead of the normal two. They also come with two temporary keys. Those can be used to unlock your car, but they can’t start it.
Dealerships are doing everything they can to replace lost or damaged fobs. Second fobs will be sent out to customers as soon as they’re available. And they’ll they be free of charge for all customers. Honda will decide whether to keep the new lease returns policy or change it back at the end of the year.
When your Honda lease is up, you can return your car, buy it or trade it in. Or, you can pay to exit your lease before its up to own your car outright. Honda dealers also accept lease returns for Chevy, Ford, Kia, Toyota and other brands.
