End Of Lease
Here are a list of resources I have found helpful in determining the “end of lease” procedures for different manufacturers. While deciding what end of lease repairs you should do to your car, please read these links and make sure you don’t waste your money on unnecessary repairs.
In most cases, you’ll get a report from the leasing company itemizing the excessive wear and tear items. Bring that in and let’s see where we can save you money. If you had your car repaired by a substandard shop, there’s a good chance the leasing company will be charging a LOT of money to correct those repairs. Though there are cases that we will not be able to do anything to help you, it’s worth talking to our estimators and explore what your options are.
