My 2015 Hyundai Sonata has a tear in the unibody rear fender around seven to eight inches long. Since it wraps around the entire back of the car, I think it needs the fender replaced. Would it cost me more to have it repaired or to return it to the dealer and pay them for the damage. No insurance involved.

you can get an estimate for FREE at most auto body shops- that will at least give you a baseline for what it would cost to repair without going through insurance.

It might be good to just be honest with the dealer, often they do not even inspect the cars when returning them from a lease. They could repair it, or just let VW take it back from them.
