    None of these programs have a set price.

    We see dealers trying to sell TFS GAP insurance for as much as $900, but have seen it sold as cheap as $300.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

  • wow! so in your experience have you ever paid any excess wear and tear or tire fees at the time of handing over the car (lease end) or do you generally always sign in a new lease with same brand/dealer?

    In the half dozen leases I've had, not once have I had to pay any sort of damage fee at the end of the lease - and, on my last one, I shot a 3-4" diameter rock from my lawn mower into the lower passenger door of my leased Jetta.

    When the inspector showed up, he shrugged it off and didn't write it up. If you take halfway decent care of your cars, you'll be fine.

    Dealers like to use scare tactics to sell these plans.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!
