Departure would not be used with ed. The sentence could be altered to be correct: I decided to return home soon after I made my departure in my car. There is still a problem. Departure is often set aside for flights. So I would further change the sentence: I decided to return soon after leaving in my car.

No. You depart by car AFTER you decide to return home.
