My car is under a lease — is that bad?

A leased vehicle isn’t your property, so the repair process needs to follow very strict guidelines set by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). For example, only new OEM replacement parts can be used. If the vehicle is declared a total loss by your insurance company, they will write a check to your lease financing company for the value of the vehicle.
