Who's Responsible for Servicing a Leased Car?

You are expected to follow your leased vehicle's factory-recommended service intervals over the duration of your lease term. These intervals can be found in your Mercedes-Benz owner's manual, or you can speak with the experts at our Little Rock Mercedes-Benz service center for more information. At the end of your lease period, an inspector will assess your GLC or E-Class lease for excess wear and tear and you will be responsible for repair costs if they're deemed necessary.


Who's Responsible for Insuring a Leased Car?

You are responsible for insuring your leased car. The leasing company will dictate the amount of coverage you need to have for your vehicle.


What Do I Do at the End of My Lease?

When the end of your lease period is approaching, you'll have to decide what you'd like to do next. You can possibly return a lease early, but this may come with an extra fee. Once the lease expiration date rolls around, though, you'll have to determine whether to return it and walk away, finance it to own (or purchase it outright, if possible) or start a new Mercedes-Benz lease in Arkansas. Reach out to our experts far in advance of your lease expiration date so we can help you fully explore your options!


Leasing a Car vs. Buying a Car

One of the key differences in leasing vs. buying a car is that when you lease, you're essentially paying to borrow it for the duration of the lease period. When you finance, you're paying to eventually own the vehicle. Both of these plans come with monthly payments, but leasing payments tend to be lower because you're paying for the estimated depreciation of the car, and not the entire purchase price. Plus, when you lease, you won't be financially committed to that vehicle for years to come. Simply return the keys and hop behind the wheel of a new lease once the lease period is over.
