I leased my car from Daytona VW through Volkswagen credit in April of 2012. On the contract, there was a $350 “lease disposition fee” that I asked my dealer, Tom about. He said “don’t worry, you’ll never have to pay it. Nobody does.” I was dumb enough to believe him. When we turned in our lease, everything went smooth. They accepted the car without trouble. Being responsible, I double-checked our VW credit online account to make sure there was no remaining fees. It reads (to this day) Balance Remaining: $0 Payments Remaining: 0 Account Status: Account Closed Then, nearly 2 months later I get a letter in the mail stating I owe $446 with a “notice to debtors in bankrupty” as the only bold item on the letter. We NEVER got a bill, dealer never told us, and our online bill is $0. Upon calling the 800 number on the letter , I’m told that her “department doesn’t handle this” and transfers me to the “recovery department. A new gentelman explains to me about the $350 “lease disposition fee” balance, along with another $96.92 for a missing key (both keys were hooked together safely when the car was turned in in perfect condition). He instructs me that (in their kindness?) they have waived the missing $97 key fee, which is kind since I turned all keys in! That said, I’m still on the hook $350 for the lease fee, because even though: My dealer told me I wouldn’t be responsible for it I never got a bill for it my online statement says balance $0, account “Closed,” payments remaining: 0 I still owe it, because it was in the original small print. Honestly I was looking at another Gulf for myself, and mentioned this to the rep. He told me they would waive the fee if I purchased the Gulf in the next month. I would, but there is just no way I could ever give VW business again! Sale is off, too bad they are nice cars.
