So I was thinking about this...maybe I'm missing something but, this is kind of a good idea....
Think about it. If you lease, chances are its for a term of two or three years --still inside warranty period. Therefore, vehicle less likely to need any repairs due to mods/flash than if it has say like 75k or 100k or more miles. Component failure less likely.
So might as well lease, do ## mods, return to factory condition at turn in, and off you go. Not stuck w long term reliability problems of mods.
Whether or not leased or owned dealer can still deny claims based on mods so that doesn't matter.
I'm thinking they check computer for flashes at turn in but there's no way to prove you did anything so not sure if in reality any penalty could be brought.
Any thoughts on any of this?
