What happens if you decide not to service a leased car?
I know you have to service a leased car per the contract stipulations. But hypothetically, what happens if you decide **not** to service a leased car?
“If you decided not to service a leased vehicle, you risk facing fines in the hundreds–possibly thousands–of dollars, as well as possibly voiding the warranty.
Every lease contract details exactly what maintenance needs to be done and how often, as well as how much the penalties are for failure to do so.
The best plan of action is to always follow this to the exact specifications. Just because you don’t own the car doesn’t give you the right to treat it poorly, especially if you decide to buy the leased car or perform a lease swap with someone you know.
While car insurance is not part of a regular maintenance schedule, it is a good idea to review your policy to make sure you’re not overpaying. Regular reviews can help you save money. If you want help automating this, try using the Jerry app. Jerry automatically reviews your policy every six months by comparing rates with the top 50 providers. What’s better than saving money on car insurance? Doing this for free.”
