Third-Party Vehicle Pre-Inspection
The first step of the lease return process is to schedule a vehicle pre-inspection. You will be contacted by an MBFS representative approximately 120 days before your contract maturity date to schedule an appointment with the independent third-party inspection company that conducts MBFS inspections. You will be able to choose the time and location that’s most convenient, including at home, at work, or at Rallye Motors.
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.

Review Pre-Inspection Results
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 Rallye Motors in advance of your expected vehicle return date.
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.
