What is the Excess Wear & Tear Protection?
Simple stains, chips, dents, and dings happen to every vehicle, but these may cause unexpected fees when you turn in your lease. Now with Excess Wear & Tear Protection, common repair costs up to $5,000 will be waived at your vehicle's turn-in. It covers common costs like paint chipping and surface dents on the exterior of your vehicle, as well as interior damage to the upholstery or carpeting. Best of all, you don't have to risk losing a portion of your security deposit to pay for these damages. Now that just makes sense.
