    Hi all

    At a hotel this weekend my Leaf suffered a bump from the hotel laundry cart. It’s more than cosmetic, bumper has a small hole, rear light cluster smashed, Nissan badge too etc etc. Looks like a couple of grand of damage.

    It’s a Nissan RCI lease, and fortunately the hotel manager has held up his hands and offered to pay all costs. With a lease, am I best being honest and telling them and seeing what they suggest for repair or taking it to a good bodyshop to repair? My local Nissan dealer will not do it as they do not apparently to bodywork.

    Any advice appreciated. Obviously don’t want it to effect my insurance and the hotel said they will settle without using theirs most likely as it has a high premium. If it was me I’d take my chances with RCI but I won’t leave them to haggle if they think it is not reasonable.

    I don’t have much experience of this, but when I gave back my ZOE I worked hard to get out all marks for the final inspection, and didn’t have anything to pay. In your situation I’d be inclined to get it repaired by a good Nissan bodyshop, agree with the hotel, and once it’s done and they’ve paid you can forget about it. If it’s a good repair it shouldn’t be notdiced at the final inspection (and if necessary you can show it was done by Nissan anyway).
