Our Wear Square can help you determine the extent of damage to:

You can avoid excess charges by having any damage repaired before you return your vehicle. If you don’t have your vehicle repaired, we’ll send you an invoice showing the amount you owe for excess wear.

Keep an eye on excess mileage, and charges
When you return your leased vehicle, your mileage will be calculated.
If your mileage is greater than what is allowed in your lease agreement, the number of extra miles will be determined by subtracting the total allowed mileage from the actual mileage on the vehicle odometer when the vehicle is returned.
Here’s how you calculate your excess mileage charge:Number of extra miles x
Per mile charge (in your lease agreement) =
Excess mileage charge (what you owe)
You can pay the total extra mileage fee at the end of your lease term.
Or you can voluntarily pay some beforehand – a little at a time – into your security deposit. That way you’ll reduce your mileage fee payment at the end of your lease.
Unfortunately, you may not purchase extra miles before the end of your lease term.
