Getting Ready for Your Lease-End

If you're currently leasing a Volkswagen, you will likely know about how to access your account via Volkswagen online. Volkswagen offers a wear and use guide, with proper measurements for tire tread depth, dents, dings, and scratches. 

Some minor cosmetic damage is considered acceptable and expected, but you should keep a close eye on any damages as you will be held financially responsible for them. Drovers from Riverhead to Coram, NY should keep in mind a few things to be on the lookout for when inspecting your leased Volkswagen:

  • Glass (interior/exterior): some dents, scratches, and singular chops smaller than two inches (with no "spiderwebbing" are acceptable
  • Tires: The tires must have a minimum thread of 1/8 of an inch at their shallowest points. Any replacement tires must be compatible with 4MOTON® AWD (if applicable) and must be the same size/speed rating as the original tires.
  • Warning Lights: Any service indicator lights must be addressed before returning of your lease. Said lights include the antilock braking (ABS) light, airbag light, or check engine light. As most leased VW models are brand-new, you will not likely run into this issue during normal commuting in Sayville, NY.
  • Upholstery: Minor stains and carpet wear are also to be expected from several months of sitting. However, any tears, holes, burns, or excessive staining will result in financial penalties. If your Volkswagen has a convertible top, it must also remain free from cuts, burns, tears, or stains.
  • Equipment: All original equipment included in the vehicle should be included, while all personal effects should be removed. Original equipment should include all sets of keys, the CD player, navigation CDs (if applicable), the convertible top (if applicable), and the owner's manual.
  • Mileage: VW offers a free and helpful way to calculate the remaining mileage on your lease contract. Any overages will also result in financial penalties, unless you choose to purchase the leased car.
