What are my
responsibilities for the repair and maintenance of my
The terms of your First Class Lease require you to have your
vehicle serviced as recommended by the manufacturer and have all
necessary repairs made. Refer to your Owner's Manual for specific
maintenance policies and schedules.
The standard for excess wear and use is set forth in your lease.
Mercedes-Benz Financial Services unique Three-Point Inspection process helps you understand
how many of the important components of excess wear and use are assessed to determine
the condition of your vehicle. The Three-Point Inspection is:
The Credit Card Test: Generally, if exterior and interior damage cannot be seen when placing a credit card over it, then it "passes the test" and you will not be charged.*
Windshield, Lights, Wheels and Tires: A quick visual check of these areas can also help take the guesswork out of the damage assessment process.
Missing Items: Check for the original equipment and verify that scheduled maintenance is up to date.
* The Credit Card Test does not apply to windshields, lights, wheels, tires, exterior cracks, gouges, collective damage or holes in the sheet metal or frame, or other major damage outside of ordinary wear and use.
Your 90 day to maturity package contains complete guidelines for chargeable damage.
Contact your Mercedes-Benz dealer to schedule an optional Vehicle Condition Review to prepare for your lease-end inspection.
