Leased vehicles must be returned in very good condition in order to avoid extra charges. It may be worthwhile to consider having a professional repair any dents or scratches before turning in the vehicle. If the tires have less than 1/8-inch tread, they should be replaced to avoid potentially costly tire replacement charges at the dealership.
Leasing Direct offers aftermarket products that can make the lease return process easier and more cost effective. If you purchased Safe Lease when you leased your vehicle, it will protect you anywhere from $2,500 to $5,000 (depending on the specific plan) of wear and tear damage including worn tires, dings, dents, scratches, wheel damage, windshield chips and interior stains and tears—and there’s no need to go through the hassle of getting these repaired.
