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. To help avoid any Excess Wear and Use charges, we recommend necessary repairs be made prior to your vehicle return. These would include broken or missing parts, insufficient or poor quality repairs, mechanical or electrical malfunctions or tires that are not an appropriate match for the vehicle.
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.
