Vehicle Inspection2

What is an inspection?

An inspection is a service conducted by an independent inspection company, AutoVIN, which assesses the condition of your vehicle before your lease ends. The optional AutoVIN inspection is totally complimentary and requires approximately 45 minutes to complete.

Inspections are offered to help ensure our lease customers understand the current condition of their vehicles, and to provide an estimate of wear and use charges that may be due at the time of the lease termination.

Who does the inspection?

Inspections are conducted by our independent inspection company, AutoVIN. All AutoVIN inspectors undergo training to ensure that vehicles are inspected according to the wear and use guidelines.

When and where is my vehicle inspection done?

If you choose to take advantage of an inspection prior to maturity, inspection appointments should be scheduled to take place 15-60 days prior to your scheduled lease-end date. Inspections can take place at your home, office, here at Burdick Toyota or other preferred locations.

How do I schedule my complimentary inspection?

You may contact AutoVIN directly at (855) 40-MY-TFS (406-9837) or visit DSFS.com to schedule an appointment online between 15-60 days prior to your lease-end date.

What happens at the inspection appointment?

A trained independent inspector will arrive at the scheduled time and location and will perform a comprehensive inspection of your vehicle. The inspector will use the Toyota Financial Services Lease-End Wear and Use Guidelines to determine any chargeable damage.

At the end of your inspection, you will receive a card containing instructions for how to access your vehicle's condition report online once it is available.

What needs to be brought to the inspection appointment?

Bring your clean leased vehicle along with the following: tool kit and spare tire, if applicable; all sets of keys (masters/remotes/valet), if applicable; Owner's Manuals; any original equipment on your vehicle at lease inception (radio, headrests, 3rd row seat, tonneau/cargo cover, etc.).

Who needs to be present at the inspection appointment?

It is recommended to have the primary lessee present. The inspector will review his/her findings with the person present at the completion of the vehicle's condition assessment.

How do I get a copy of my vehicle's condition report?

Within two business days of the inspection, your vehicle's condition report will be available online. You can view this report by logging into your account at toyotafinancial.com.

What happens if I choose not to take advantage of the complimentary inspection prior to maturity?

An inspection prior to maturity is optional. However, if you do not take advantage of the service prior to your maturity date, the leased vehicle will undergo an inspection once it has been turned in should you choose to return your vehicle. You may find it valuable to know the condition of your vehicle before returning it, as you may be liable for any excess wear and use charges.

Do I need an inspection if I am buying my leased vehicle?

No, you will not need to do an inspection. For details on the process to purchase your leased vehicle, view the "Purchase your current Toyota" option.

Wear and Use

What is considered excessive wear and use?

Damage to the vehicle that is beyond normal wear and use is considered excessive. View our Wear and Use Guidelines 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.

Can I make repairs to my lease vehicle before I turn it in, so I do not incur wear and use charges?

Yes. You are encouraged to schedule a complimentary inspection and to review the Wear and Use Guidelines to see whether your vehicle has wear and use that is considered excessive. Damages that exceed normal wear and use that are not repaired may result in charges at lease termination.3 If repair work is needed and you'd like to make repairs prior to turning in the vehicle, we'll be happy to assist you. Be certain to keep all of your receipts for any repairs made and review your insurance policy to see if any items may be covered.
