VW credit normal end of lease options are return the car or buyout the car. If you call VW Credit, they mention the third option, which is to extend the lease for up to 6 months. The payment is the same, the residue value goes down correspondingly. (I assume the mileage limit goes up, but I actually did not specifically ask.)
The whole process is very short once you get connected to a live person.

I went with that option for my 2016 SE with lease ending end of October.
Since I still have the intentions to keep the car after 6 months, I will schedule a service to double check on the conditions before the 36-months is up.

Time for my car to go back (In Dec)
since I was under the 90 day limit I got it inspected.

Here's my charge/issue list:
Big Ding - No Charge (Under golf ball size)
Small Ding but deep - No Charge
Non Matching 4th Tire - No Charge (Got a blowout and they replaced it with a Bridgestone but not an Ecopia)
Water stains on 3 seats - No Charge (Damn these seats change color with any kind of liquid)
Missing 2nd Key at Inspection - $168 (Yikes)
Broken Front Windshield - $350 (I was quoted at $550 to fix, so I'm just going to turn it in)
Having 1 tire at 4/32 - No Charge

As a Note : The crack on the windshield has to be 2" or more to count. Small chips don't count.

My inspector congratulated me for calling it in early otherwise I would probably had to pay for at least the extra tire if he had shown up 3 months later.
I'm looking for a new car but no good specials are out (And I don't want a Fiat 500e again). The VW was nice, and was a good price ($200/month $0 Drive off) but I like my wife's Kia much more.

VW charged us for the "missing key" from the report even though the actual dealer return form indicated both keys were received. I had to call them and submit a copy of the dealer return acknowledgement. Then they took it off the lease closing invoice. Then, we only owed the Disposition Fee.
