The Credit Card Test®

We recommend using The Credit Card Test® to assess some of your interior and exterior damage. Typically, if interior and exterior damage cannot be seen when a standard-size credit card is placed over it, you won't be charged.**The Credit Card Test® does not apply for damage to windshields, lights, wheels, tires, exterior cracks, gouges, collective damage, or holes in the sheet metal.

You will be able to review your pre-inspection report online at www.AutoVINLIVE.com. Once you review the report, you can explore the option of repairing any excess wear and use items with Mercedes-Benz of Willoughby in advance of your expected vehicle return date.

Lease-End Statement

Receive your final lease-end statement in the mail+, detailing any charges incurred for mileage overages and/or excess wear and use. Charges will be based on the final, third-party vehicle inspection to be conducted at vehicle turn-in.+ In cases where your third-party pre-inspection report indicates no charges for excess wear and use items, and the condition of your vehicle at turn-in has not changed since pre-inspection, your dealer may be able to present you with a final lease-end statement. For leases contracted in Wisconsin, the final inspection will be used for billing purposes and the pre-inspection is for informational purposes only.
