You may purchase the vehicle at the end of your lease by paying the residual balance.
If you choose to purchase the vehicle, there is a purchase fee added to the residual cost and your security deposit will be subtracted.
Pay off your lease and lease another CARite vehicle at a participating location! If no over-mileage or damage, you may use the same security deposit for your new lease. There is an exchange fee needed at the dealership to complete the exchange. Other fees may apply depending on the vehicle you choose.
If you want to just turn in the car and walk away, a $450 disposition fee is subtracted from your security deposit. Mileage & damage is assessed at turn-in. All lease balances are then due at turn-in. With normal wear, the remainder of your security deposit can be refunded. Remember to notify Brite before you turn in your car!
