PREPARE YOUR VEHICLE

Step 1: Self-Assess Wear & Use

What is considered Excess Wear and Use?

Your lease vehicle is expected to be returned in good condition. However, Ford Credit allows for normal wear and use. The following chart provides detailed information about Excess Wear and Use. You can also refer to the wear and use guidelines mailed to you prior to lease-end or download our Wear and Use Evaluator Card & Guidelines.

If you purchased WearCare® your Excess Wear and Use charges will be waived up to $5,000 in most cases. See your WearCare® Addendum for details and exclusions on coverage.


Refer to your Red Carpet Lease Agreement for more details about Excess Wear and Use, including:
  • Broken or missing parts (e.g., keys, head restraints, spare tire, charge cord on hybrid/electric vehicle)
  • Insufficient or poor quality repairs
  • Mechanical or electrical malfunctions
  • Tires that are not an appropriate match for the vehicle

To help avoid any Excess Wear and Use charges, we recommend necessary repairs be made prior to your vehicle return. Riverhead Ford is there for you, should you have any needs or questions about necessary repairs.

Some vehicle damage otherwise considered Excess Wear and Use may be covered by your vehicle insurance. Be sure to allow sufficient time for claim processing and repairs before you return your vehicle.

Excess Mileage
It is important to understand that if you return your vehicle and, the mileage exceeds the amount allowed under your lease, that you will be responsible for the excess miles driven. Please refer to your Red Carpet Lease Agreement for details about mileage allowance and excess mileage charges.

Disposition Fee
A Disposition Fee applies to returned vehicles, if disclosed on the Lease Agreement. Qualifying lease customers who purchase or lease a new Ford vehicle may be eligible for a waiver. See your dealer for details.


Step 2: Lease-End Inspection

Why is Vehicle Inspection Important? Vehicle inspection provides detailed information about the condition of your vehicle including an assessment of any Excess Wear and Use. Understanding this assessment before lease-end allows time to arrange for any desired repairs before returning your vehicle.

How is a Vehicle Inspection Scheduled? Approximately 35-45 days before your lease is scheduled to end, you should be contacted by a Vehicle Inspection Company to arrange both a date and location for your vehicle's inspection. When called, set up your appointment at your earliest opportunity to ensure time, if you choose, to address identified Excess Wear & Use.

Step 3: Vehicle Repairs

If your vehicle needs any repairs, your Riverhead Ford has expert techs and quality service along with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts to help ensure your vehicle is ready for return. Retain copies of all repair receipts to verify completed repairs when returning your lease vehicle.
