So I got into an unfortunate fender bender with the Golf today - young lady ran a red light, but in fairness I should have seen it coming so I'm kicking myself too... NO airbags, just looks like a bumper, hood, some battery coolant lines, $6000 estimate of damage...

I made sure to call VW lease and pick a VW approved repair shop... Will the lease return be affected in any way ? Will they ding me for diminished value, do you think ? Anybody experienced this ?

Also curious, if that were to be the case, what is a rough buyout of the car after a 2 y lease for a base Egolf ? 10K ? 14? If they try to rip me off I might just keep the thing.

Assuming the repairs are done correctly, there should be no penalty when you turn it in.

Lease for my 2016 base SE will be up July 31st, and residual is still $13.7k so I'd be looking at $15k for purchase after taxes. I'm still hoping they discount it, but that's about the fair market value and am not optimistic.

using a VW approved shop will really help if they try to pull something on you.

Of course the inspector will pull the car fax and see if he needs the 'deep check it'
