Get Your Leased Vehicle Ready for Inspection

Having a leased car is more cost efficient for many drivers. It comes with great options to choose from at the end of the lease. You can walk away if you want another car, you can buy the vehicle, or you can lease it again. However, just like renting an apartment, when you are ready to turn it in, there will be an inspection. This inspection is to make sure that the vehicle has had no damages since the lease starting date. Now, this is where a lot of drivers tend to lose money. Every lease is different, but the general areas that they look for damage tend to be the same such as dents, tears in the seats or window damage.

Cost of repair will vary by the extent of the damage. Owning a car is a lot of work on its own. Unless it becomes a danger to yourself and/or to those around you getting repairs made might not be your top priority. When you lease knowing that the car is not yours, unless you purchase it at the end, it should alert you to getting repairs done sooner before they become an issue. The manufacturer inspectors are trained to look at every vehicle in detail, and something that may seem small to you may be a significant infraction to them.
