What are Lease Return Re-Charges?


When you return your lease vehicle back to the lessee, it is you that is responsible for any damages the lease company deems as “excessive wear and tear”.

Your car will be inspected when you return it by the lease company or dealership for any areas of damage deemed to be "excessive wear and tear". The cost of repairing any of this damage will be a recharge. The average vehicle owner is charged more than $1,800 when returning their vehicles – often for minor damage such as door dings, bumper scrapes, and minor interior damage. 

Normal vs. Excessive Wear?


Normal wear is the minor and reasonable wear a vehicle endures in everyday, ordinary operation. Normal wear can include a few small door dings, paint scratches, stone chips less than 2 inches in diameter.

Excess wear includes occurrences beyond the normal or ordinary wear a vehicle endures. This includes wear caused by neglect, abuse, damage, poor maintenance, changing the vehicle’s appearance or using inferior parts and materials for repairs. Most damage over 2 inches in diameter fall into this category.
