Normal wear and use to a vehicle is to be expected. We can all relate to the occasional shopping cart ding, scratch or scuff. However, damages exceeding normal wear and use and mileage in excess of that specified on your lease agreement may be chargeable to you upon lease-end.* 

To help avoid any surprises and charges we welcome you to schedule a lease end pre-inspection so that we can go over the vehicle with you. Please review our general Wear and Use Guidelines below for examples of what is considered excessive. The examples provided are for your convenience and may not include all instances of excessive damage that may subject you to additional charges.**

Toyota now offers Excess Wear and Use Lease Protection Coverage for under $24 per month to protect you from the examples below. Please inquire at the time of your next lease to protect yourself from any future lease end financial surprises.***
