Division 12, Safety Equipment
17.1 Leased vehicles:
- If a lessee decides to purchase the leased vehicle at the end
of their lease term, the dealer is not required to perform a safety
inspection on the vehicle. The law presumes the lessee knows the
condition of the car they have been driving during the lease terms,
and if it has not been properly maintained and may be unsafe,
that is the lessee/buyer’s responsibility, not the dealer’s.
