Re: LEASING - definition of normal and excessive wear

I leased my 2012 GC Limited through US Bank; excessive wear and tear was basically anything less than brand new. I wound up buying it out of the lease and trading it and making a few thousand.

LOL... strict? I think it's actually pretty lenient. And it's nowhere near as bad as others have made it out to be.

The old Chrysler Financial was nowhere near THAT bad.

I don't even think Ally is that bad.

Re: LEASING - definition of normal and excessive wear

I wouldn't know, I've never leased from them. I guess how one looks at the terms is based on how well or poorly they tend to take care of their vehicle.
