I am also coming up to my lease return of my 2016 e-Golf SE. All this talk of Bolts and Leafs and Ioniqs makes me sad. If VW had bothered to keep the e-Golfs coming, I probably would have grabbed one. But I leased mine for about $7000 total over 3 years, and now they want $13k for me to buy it, NO WAY! I'd rather use those funds to lease another EV, problem is there's nothing out there that I want as much as the VW. Guess I'll hunker down and go back to driving my gas-guzzling Jeep for the next few years until VW starts sending the US more EVs. Problem is that by then, the competition will be fierce, with lots of automakers ramping up EV production. The e-Golf has whet my appetite for EVs, but it's unlikely my next one will be a VW. Sad.

Do they check if the scheduled maintenance has been completed or not ?

I am approaching my lease return date and 30K maintenance is due.

Nope, the inspector did not ask any question regarding maintenance! Maybe they already have the records in their database? However, I don't remember seeing anything about having the maintenance in my contract. My car was in excellent condition (maybe one tiny door ding) so it took the inspector about 10 minutes to complete the inspection.
Try to schedule your inspection as soon as you can since they are very busy.

Same here! My lease was about $7,750 for 3 years, 40k miles. The cheapest 2018 egolf quote I got is $2,999 down, $289/month (that is over $13K) so my new next EV definitely wont be an eGolf. I will most likely purchase the new Leaf.

Thanks for the info. I will call and schedule the inspection ASAP.

My end of lease inspection was no big deal. I even had two different brand tires and they didn't care.

I then took the car back to the dealer and it was as if I hadn't had the inspection done. They went through the whole car, themselves.
