That happened to my last car, needed 2 headlights, bumper, fender and hood. AS long as the damage is repaired they don't care.


Thanks netforcer for the awsome sig! You da man!

great news I was worried they'd charge me since the car is now harder to resell.

No, just as long as it doesn't look like it was ever in a collision it wont make a difference. Usually all the lease returns go back to Toyota financial and they auction them off anyway, dealers rarely resell lease returns.

Shouldn't the answer to all of your questions regarding this issue be well explained in your lease contract? I would reread it- even if all it does is reaffirm the answers given above.

fix it and don't worry. the dealer will not check. make sure though not to give it back to them with any damage. they will charge you a arm and a leg for it.

Accident update

I posted last week that my wife got into an accident in the shiny new 2 week old car with 500 miles. And my life gets worse just heard from the insurance company today that the other drivers insurance policy was canceled a year ago so this is more great news for me.
