With any car comes the burden of maintaining, servicing and repairing the vehicle. This can bring unexpected costs and can stretch your budget. Leasing can help to control these eventualities. Your car lease doesn't include servicing, maintenance and repair costs unless you opt to purchase a maintenance package. But, your car is covered by a manufacturer's warranty, usually for the duration of your lease. This means those key elements of the vehicle such as the engine, gearbox and some electrics are covered. If you plan to lease the car for longer than the warranty period you can purchase an extended warranty to ensure you keep your cover. Any defects or damage that occurs during normal vehicle usage should be rectified as soon as possible. This will ensure that the consequential damage is minimised.
