What Happens When I Go Over My Lease Mileage?

This is a common question from lease owners and it’s a good one to know. You may have gotten that job a few miles further from home or are wondering if you should drive or fly on your upcoming family vacation but worry about going over your mileage allowance. By understanding what happens if you do go over and keeping a tab on your current mileage, you’ll be able to fret less about going over your lease mileage.

To start, lease terms are agreed upon based upon the value of the vehicle after the estimated depreciated residual value with an estimation of mileage during that time. A common lease mileage allowance is 12,000 miles per year which equals 1,000 miles per month. If at the end of your lease you have gone over the agreed upon mileage you will pay a set fee for every mile over to make up for the depreciation in the vehicles residual value. This fee will be in your lease agreement and is usually between $0.15-$0.30 cents per mile based on your vehicle.

Remember, the mileage only matters when you turn in your vehicle. If your mileage allowance is 36,000 miles for 3 years, it doesn’t matter if you put 3000 miles in one month and 50 in another as long as the total does not exceed 36,000 when you turn your vehicle in at the end of the lease.

Using the example above, here’s a quick calculation for lease mileage charges:

  • Mileage at Lease Turn in 39,000
  • Mileage Allowance 36,000
  • Mileage Overage 3000 x $0.15 Overage Fee per Mile = $450.00 Total Mileage Overage Fee

So if you go over 3000 miles, you would have to pay $450 at lease turn in based on a 15 cent mileage overage fee (plus applicable state taxes).

How Can I Avoid Going Over My Lease Mileage Allowance?

It can be hard to estimate how many miles you are going to be putting on your vehicle, especially for first time lease owners. To avoid going over your mileage allowance you should be aware of your driving habits and mileage trend. If in the first six months, you drive 7,000 miles on a 3-year, 36,000 mile lease, you are averaging about 1,166 miles per month and are likely to exceed the mileage allowance at the end of 3 years. By taking action early, you can make small changes to avoid using excess mileage.

Tips To Lower Mileage Consumption:

  • Car Pool to work or school – either with family or co-workers
  • Use Public Transportation – instead of driving into Philly for the night, take the PATCO.
  • Choose “Shortest Distance” on your GPS – Many GPS are set to find the route with the shortest time even if it requires more miles. By changing this setting, you may take an extra few minutes but can save on miles.
  • Combine trips – Stopping at the pharmacy or grocery store on your way home from work instead of making an extra trip on the weekend may save time and miles.
  • Choose to fly or rent a vehicle for getting to your vacation destination – Longer trips will definitely eat up your mileage allowance so be sure to factor in the risk of mileage overage when comparing costs to fly or drive.

The wait for the 2017 Honda Civic Type R is almost over. Auto enthusiasts, Honda loyalist, and dealers across the country have been anxiously awaiting the Type R to make its debut in the US.

Along with an upgraded body and chassis, the Civic Type R boasts a L-4 2.0L DOHN i-VTEC turbocharged engine with dual valve timing with up to 306 horsepower @6,500 rpm and 295 lb of torque at 2,500 – 4,500 rpm.  Updates from the previous European version include a new single-mass flywheel that reduces clutch inertia by 25% and improved acceleration response due to a lower final gear ratio.

The upgraded chassis includes front wheel drive with limited slip differential, dual pinion electric power steering with variable ratio and active steering, and dual axis front strut suspension and independent multilink rear suspension with adaptive damper system. Brakes consist of front Brembo aluminum four piston calipers with drilled 350mm rotor brakes with the rear brakes featuring solid 305mm rotors. The Type R boasts 20 inch aluminum alloy wheels and 245/30R 20 Continental ContiSportContact 6 performance tires.

The Honda Civic Type R will have three driving modes: Comfort, Sport (default), and “+R”. The three-modes adjust dampers, steering, throttle response, transmission (rev matching), VSA (vehicle stability assist) and traction control systems.

The Honda Civic Type R body is based on the redesigned Civic Hatchback released last year and previous generations of the Type R but with increased body stiffness. Keeping in line with the racing motif, the interior hosts high-bolstered sport seats with red and black suede-effect fabric, a leather wrapped steering wheel, a leather wrapped shift knob, sports/racing pedals, and illuminated visors.

Features include Display Audio with Navigation, Dual Auto HVAC, XM and HD radio, 12 speaker 540-watt premium audio system, and of course Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ to pair your smartphone.
