What Should I Expect When Turning in My Lease?


While normal wear-and-tear during a two or three-year lease is acceptable and even expected, excessive wear or damage may result in repair fees being charged.

To determine if their vehicle has excessive wear and tear, people will oftentimes perform what is known as a “credit card test.” Typically, if the damage can be covered up by a standard credit card, it could be considered normal wear and tear (although this is at the discretion of the dealership).
