Leasing and Dents: When to Repair

Driving a leased vehicle is a luxury motorists are given for generally a two- to three-year term. Whether you’re driving a leased car on your road trip to Ohio or a leased SUV while your car is in the shop, it’s important to take care of your temporary new set of wheels.

Returning a LeaseAuto damage is often inevitable. Whether your car was damaged during a hail storm, a runway shopping cart scratched your car door, or you had a minor fender bender causing some dings, dents and dings are often hard to prevent. Before returning your vehicle, it’s important to inspect it for any damage so there are no surprises when you bring it back to your leasing company.

If the inspection finds minor body damage on the vehicle, don’t panic! In many cases, minor damage will not cause the leasing company to charge you for repairs as a reasonable amount of routine wear and tear is to be expected. However, if there is a great deal of visible damage to the body of the car, repair costs could be coming out of your wallet, instead. So what constitutes as major damage?

  • Large dents or scratches – If the dent or scratch is bigger than the length of a credit card, have it fixed before returning it.
  • Cracks, cuts, holes, etc. – Major, obvious punctures and breakages on the bumper or in sheet metal panels, like the door or hood need to be fixes.
  • Hail damage and windshield cracks – Hail can damage a car extensively and even crack the glass – need we say more?
