Wear and Tear

Wear and tear generally refers to damage that occurs naturally over time through the normal use of a car. Lessees should pay close attention to the section of their car lease contracts that explains wear and tear and its limits and waivers. Lessors often provide limited waivers for excessive wear and tear, which would free a lessee from being responsible for any fees as long as the cost of repairing the excess wear and tear is within the limit set by the lessor.
