New York bill aims to protect leasers from exhorbitant ‘lease-end’ charges

“An act has been introduced, that if passed, could affect New York drivers and AGRR shops. Act 268 is on the docket for further discussion in this year’s regular session.

Act 268’s goal is to change portions of the current insurance law that involve expanding service contracts to protect those leasing vehicles for personal use from unexpected “lease-end” charges for things that include windshield cracks and chips. Currently New Yorkers who lease a vehicle are subject to an additional charge at the end of their service contract to cover certain repair services that do not go over a certain amount.”

If you’re currently leasing a vehicle we recommend that you review your contract for maintenance and repair terms. If damage to the vehicle is determined that you were at fault, you or your insurance will likely be charged for repairs. However, if damage is due to normal wear and tear or a manufacturer’s defect, than that typically means the dealer will be responsible. Every contract is different and understanding these terms will better prepare you for future incidents.
