I am new to leasing, but am coming to the end of a leased Ford Focus in about a year. We will be under mileage, and only have a few scratches. I would consider it normal wear and tear, but who knows. What I am worried about is the fact that I have no interest in buying it, trading it in, or getting a new lease. I want to walk. Even with the mileage and “normal” wear, what can I expect the dealer to do? I am very concerned about them trying to hose me. Is there something I can review or tips on this situation? Thank you
If you are worried about the scratches, I recommend using a clearcoat safe rubbing compound. 3M makes an excellent one that you can buy at NAPA or other auto stores. Just dont let the complex car lingo get to you, and I think you should be just fine!
