6 tips to help you survive your next lease-return inspection.
1.To prepare for the inspection,we recommends removing all personal items from the car and washing it. A detailing job might also be a good idea. It's definitely to your advantage to present your car in the best light you can.
2. Repair damaged bumpers, broken windshields or bald tires. Otherwise, the lessor will do it for you, for a fee.
"Tires, glass and bumpers are the three things that you are always better off fixing yourself.
If your tires have at least one-eighth inch of tread remaining, you probably won't be charged. But if your tires are bald, you may be on the hook for replacements. This is why it's a good reason to rotate your tires on a regular basis.
Likewise, you'll be charged for any equipment that doesn't work properly, such as radios, window regulators, navigation systems and the like. It's a good idea to get these things fixed in advance, so that you can get a decent price on the repair. Don't forget to keep your receipts, so that you can document your repairs.
3. You may get a break on minor door dings, scratches and upholstery stains.
Check your lease policy. Every lease policy interprets these problems differently, so it pays to read the fine print. Small dings, scratches and stains are often considered to be legitimate wear-and-tear but there is a fine line between a small ding and a dent.
For example, Hyundai Finance won't charge you for body dents less than one inch in diameter, while Ford Credit won't charge for dents less than four inches wide.
But if there's a puncture in a body panel, you're going to be charged for it.
4. Make sure that your car has all the equipment it started out with.
If you left the tonneau cover for your car's luggage compartment in a corner of the garage, remember to put it back. Ditto for the spare tire cover or the third row of seats for your SUV.
5. Make sure that your car gets scheduled maintenance.
Keep a written record of your car's maintenance, so that you can prove you changed the oil regularly, checked fluid levels, rotated the tires, etc.
If you encounter engine trouble or other mechanical problems, your records will help demonstrate that you were not at fault. If your lease is no longer than 36 months, the vehicle warranty should cover the cost of any necessary repairs.
6. Don't exceed your annual mileage limits.
