New to the site and been chasing Volvo wagon lease deals since I got here. As I’ve done so I’ve had to confront the idea that, should I land a good deal, I’ll be parking the thing in a driveway with no overhanging shelter. I live in the South and in my state, generally, and my neighborhood, specifically, garages aren’t a common thing to have, probably because we get lots of rain and flooding. My house is out of the flood zone, fortunately. We do occasionally get hail, too.
I have decent insurance. And I’ve never had an issue with three of my previous leases getting weather damaged here. But going from a Honda to a Volvo has me a bit more uptight than usual about this no garage thing. Any words of wisdom and/or caution? Edit: I’m worried, of course, about lease-end wear & tear charges, in addition to more costly repairs along the way.
