How much is Jeep’s disposition fee?
The lease on my Jeep is about to run out, and I know I’m going to have a few fees to pay when I turn the car in, so I’m trying to plan ahead. How much is Jeep’s disposition fee?

Chrysler Capital usually charges a lease disposition fee of $395 on a Jeep. The disposition fee, or turn-in fee, can vary from state to state, but it shouldn’t be more than $400.
You’re probably wondering why you have to pay to give a vehicle back. A dealership’s disposition fee covers the cost to detail your returned vehicle and prepare it for resale. That said, you may be able to avoid paying a disposition fee altogether. Two of the most common ways to avoid a lease disposition fee include:
- Buying your leased vehicle: Most lease contracts include a purchase option. If you select this option, the dealership will often waive your disposition fee. Watch out, though—they may replace the disposition fee with a purchase options charge.
- Signing another lease: If you choose to lease another Jeep through the same dealership, you can often get your disposition fee waived since you’re continuing your business.
If you decide to lease another Jeep, be sure to read your new lease contract to see if it includes a disposition fee. If it does, you may be able to negotiate to have it removed before you sign.
