When should I have my vehicle inspected?It is recommended you have the inspection done within the last 2 months of your lease. This is recommended, because if any repairs are due, you have time to complete them before your lease term expires.
Why can’t I just have my dealer perform the inspection of my vehicle?Authorized agents are the only ones who are able to provide End-of Lease Inspections. However, you are able to turn your vehicle into us upon Lease Return and we can contact the Authorized Agent to perform the Inspection.
How long does the inspection take?Typically – the inspection takes approximately an hour, unless there is excess damage to your vehicle.
Do I have to be present during the inspection?While it is tempting to hand over your keys and let the inspection proceed without you, we encourage you to be present for it. Your presence at the inspection will allow you to have a greater understanding of the results, and of any charges your vehicle may be assessed. Since you’ll be asked to sign the report, you’ll want to be present as the inspector looks at the vehicle. Additionally, you’ll receive a copy of the report for your records. If you simply can’t be present for the inspection, enlist someone who is familiar with your vehicle to be there.
What if I Want to Extend My Lease?If you are interested in keeping your leased vehicle a little longer, or you just want to wait for a new BMW to come in, we’ll consider extending your current lease. You can, in most cases, extend your lease for one or more months at the same monthly payment. Contact Faulkner BMW at 717.569.4269 and one of our Customer Service Representatives can provide details about extending a lease.
