I have a leased vehicle and its getting close to the time when I have to take it back to the dealer to turn it in. What do I do with the minor dents, dings, and scratches?
Most lease agreements state that any damages beyond what they consider “normal wear and tear” is going to be charged to you.
Rule of thumb ( and this will vary from different lease companies ) Minor dents not deeper or bigger in area than the size of your thumb is considered “normal wear & tear”. If you have multiple areas and they are bigger than this, it may cost you thousands of dollars more.
