I'm currently in a GMFA lease and have a curbed wheel and a ding. I'm curious how they assess excess wear and tear. I've leased vehicles before and some have a certain allowance per panel, certain size dent/scratch/curbage and some allow for the first $1k in damage and anything beyond is excess.
I don't want to live with a curbed wheel that I could easily have repaired only to pay for it later. The curbed part is about 5.5" long, which is probably longer than what they'd allow.

I recall seeing a checklist you can print and place next to your car’s imperfections to see if it’s a chargeable issue or not. Check on their website.

I have found that if you frequent the dealership and purchase repeat vehicles and especially if you are leasing or buying another new vehicle as part of the end of lease, there is a lot of give on wear and tear. The dealership usually gets involved and I think what happens is that they buy the car as is at wholesale (vs. your residual) from GMAF and then flog it to a used car operation and then get you into your new one. If you are not getting another vehicle, then they may not be as interested in helping you get rid of the old if you are not getting into a new one.
