MILEAGE AND WEAR 101

It’s important to know what to look for regarding mileage and wear before you turn in your vehicle. As stated in your Chrysler Capital Lease Agreement, mileage, the condition of your vehicle and its maintenance are your responsibility. Excessive mileage and wear will result in additional charges. At the end of your lease, you will receive a final bill. Contact us at 855-383-0558 with any questions about added fees.

Please use the following pages to:

  • Understand your mileage allowance
  • Distinguish between “normal” and “excess” wear and use

Mileage

The first step in analyzing mileage is to check your Chrysler Capital Lease Agreement to confirm the total number of miles allocated for the duration of your lease. Based on your mileage allowance, excess miles will be calculated as any miles driven above the maximum miles outlined in your agreement. Your agreement also states the per-mile charge for any additional miles. If applicable, the excess mileage charge will be assessed when your vehicle is returned.

Wear

To avoid unwanted surprises, the descriptions and tables on the following pages will provide you with identifiable characteristics of normal and excess wear. Normal wear, as the name suggests, is expected and accounted for in your Chrysler Capital Lease Agreement. However, excess wear is your responsibility and will result in additional cost to you.

Normal wear – the reasonable wear that a vehicle endures over time in day-to-day normal operation. For example:

  • Minor and expected imperfections
  • A few small door dings
  • Minor paint scratches and rock chips
  • Tire tread worn to no less than 4/32 inch

Normal wear does not result in additional charges.

Excess wear – the degree of wear caused outside the realm of normal or ordinary wear. Occurrences including:

  • Abuse, neglect or poor maintenance
  • Damage or physical alteration
  • Use of inferior parts and materials for repair

Inflicting such damage upon your vehicle will result in additional charges at turn-in. To best protect against additional charges, repairs should be completed prior to your lease agreement ending.
