Audi Lease Buyout Guide

What is a Lease Buyout?

A lease buyout, sometimes referred to as a purchase option or the residual price which allows you to purchase your leased vehicle  at the end of the lease instead of turning it in, if your lease contract permits it.  Whether or not buying out a leased car is the right move depends on a lot of factors.

Is buying out my leased Audi worth it?

The lease end purchase price or  residual is set by the manufacturer at the time the vehicle is originally leased and is generally non-negotiable. Depending on how many miles, physical condition and market conditions the car may or may not be a "good buy".   

Is my Audi still under warranty if I move forward with the buyout option?

Depending on the manufacturer warranty options will vary. Audi offers all customers a 4 year or 50k mile factory warranty from the original date of purchase/lease. If you leased a vehicle for a 36 month term, you would still have 1 year of warranty remaining at no additional cost.

Can I purchase an additional warranty after the factory warranty is expired?

 In most cases, Yes, the manufacturer will offer an extended warranty at an additional cost. If your plans are to keep the vehicle  for 2 or 3 years it is advisable to purchase an extended warranty.  If the extended warranty is issued by the manufacturer then the warranty is generally transferrable and or refundable (at a pro-rated amount)
