What is a Closed End Lease?

All Toyota Care leases are closed end leases. This means you make a set number of payments over the term of your lease and the leasing company guarantees the “price” or lease end value of your vehicle at the end of the term. Factors such as economic conditions, vehicle popularity, colour and equipment can all affect the value of a used vehicle and can result in the market value being lower than the lease end value at the end of your term. By guaranteeing the lease end value, Toyota Financial Services assumes the risk of any loss on the used vehicle. So, if your car is worth less than the lease end value, you can simply return the vehicle. You are only responsible for charges at lease end that may result from excess wear and tear or exceeding the kilometre limit set out in your lease contract.
