Can you break a car lease due to a recall?

You can break a car lease due to a recall if the terms of your lease allow for this to occur. When you sign a lease, both you and the leasing company agree to certain terms. One of the responsibilities carried by the leasing company, when the company is the same as the car manufacturer, is to provide you with a safe vehicle. This means you may be able to show the company has broken its end of the lease when a recall has been issued to due a safety concern in the car. Any other stipulations having to do with the quality of the product in your lease may apply in order to allow you to break the lease after recall. If your contract is devoid of these terms, you will not be able to break your lease.
