What is your deadline and length of answer,
What risk is involved in signing new/next car lease BEFORE "end of term lease inspection" on current lease?
Response 1: You may be liable for anything wrong with the car that should have been discovered during the required inspection. It is not prudent to sign a new lease WITHOUT this inspection.
The VW dealership is pressuring me to pull the trigger on my new/next lease tomorrow (primarily due to a Labor Day corporate rebate that ends tomorrow), however I've not yet had my current car inspected (or turned it in). If I agree to the new lease terms before finding out what repairs I might be responsible for on the old lease will it come back to haunt me?
Response 2: Yes.
Limit my ability to negotiate what I'm responsible for repairing?
Response 3: Yes, it would. DO NOT be pressured into a new lease without this inspection. It is in your interest to have the inspection done before signing for another term.
