I'm gonna have to return my Tib soon, and I want to know how strict they are. Are they gonna shaft me for new tires? brakes? What about scratches? I just want to hear the stories out there, i don't want to dish out when I return it! Oh, and I guess anybody from Canada, since it might be different for our American friends?? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

simmer simmer peepses

i really don't think anyone has really leased hyuundais way too often. the market usually hasn't supported the value after the lease is up, so you would get a horrible deal, and a lot cheaper to purchae the vehicle.
don't you still have the stock rims you could trade back?? if i invested in the rims, i would just toss them back on and keep the new ones.

then sell the new ones if nothing else.

i could never lease a vehicle since i drive like 22k miles a year, i would get butt raped on the milage, like $10000 in extra charges for miles hehe.

but, for as long as this has been up, i really don't think there have been many horror stories, let alone lease stories, sorry man.

but we would all like to know what happens, aight?

Thanks randav for the constructive response <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
I am just pissed because I was not looking for negative critisism from somebody...

I will sell my rims and my KMs will be within the allowable limits. And if I get digned for scratches, I'll have the money up front. I just heard of guys having to dish out big $$$ for stupid, stupid stuff... something you would not expect. I will post once I bring it back to let everyone know... and oh, I leased because selling a car is a real pain, didn't you all notice?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

just so there's no cunfusion and we don't ave to deal with explicit name-calling, my initial comment was a generalization on how alot of people deal with they're leases. People seem to think that if they're leasing, they don't have to worry about the car because its not theirs. Well, they're right about it not being theirs because they're just renting the car for a longer term than youcould at Avis...being that its not your car...yet, you should consder two things....how much abuse and or neglect did the car receive...if you get dinged for worn tyres or body damage, then ythat serves you right for skwealin tyres or not making an insuranse claim...anyway, if you still have your copies of the papers you signed when u got the car...everything your responsible for should be pointed out if you read it thoroughly...my point intitially was to not insult you but to make you consider that leasing doesn't pay off unless you've got money to burn or can use the car as a tax right-off..maybe you should consider buying out the term..that is if you like the car and its not to beat-up? Later

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Ah, that's better. Actually, I am not going to buy it out, as I really like the 2003 Tib. My reason for leasing is that I always switch cars, every 3-4 years. So there would be no point for me to buy, as I would be selling all the time... And I was very good on the car, not rough at all. I should be OK. This whole post just started after hearing bad, bad stories of friends bringing back their cars (not Hyundai) and getting digned for the bottom spoiler being scratched, new tires (although there was still lots of thread)... anyways, we'll see.

well here's an easy way of gettin rid if it w/out mishap....simply dump it off in the middle of the night, change your name(legally) and then go buy a GS-R!

what color is the car and how bad are the scratches??


before you take it in, get a really nice wax, wash your car, and wax it twice all nice and pretty. the wax actually will fill in the scratches and hide them for a week or two. so do that the night before, and then brush it off right after.

then go BUY a 2003 tibby v6 so you can do **** to it, like new exhaust, intake, and get that baby purring over 200 hp :)

I wax my car everytime I can, and there are about 2-3 scratches about 1-2 inches long that still stay... unless I get a "polisher"??? Maybe I'm just freakin' out for nothing, don't know... I can't wait to see how it goes, i will let you all know...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

you're car is red

get a thing from turtle wax (i think look at target) it has like a thing of red (looks like lipstick) put that over the big scratches, then wax it. That fills them in with red, and then waxes and shines it up.

try that :)

mine is cardinal red, it isn't exact, but it is close enough, that it hides it. all reds are to use that color (to a certain extent)

it just matches it closer then just the wax in it, which reflects the colors from the side. supposed to be for for rock chips and larger scratches.

it may look dark when you put it on, but wax it, wash it and wax it again and it will look perfect
