I was buying a new car and returning a Nissan Sentra off of a lease a month early. I was returning my car early off lease early so that I could take early delivery of my new car. My salesman brought over the lease guy and they both looked over my Sentra and they both said that it looked great and that I should not receive any hits for the condition that it is in.
I leased the car for 39 months and was giving it back to them a month early and I paid extra for 49,000 miles on the lease. I returned the car with only 46,000 miles on it.
Bottom line they hit me for $744. A few scratches which I can agree with. But the part that really bothers me is that they are charging me for 4 brand new tires. They are saying that it is excessive wear to drive a set of tires 46,000 miles, even though I paid to drive them 49000 miles. They are getting 4 new tires on a returned lease.
I paid extra to drive the car 49000 miles. At the end of the lease they expect the tread to be like new and expect me to pay for it. I think that is very unreasonable. I will never deal with another Nissan dealer again, either purchase or lease.
