Old lease reporting 60 days late some months, paid other months

Recommended Posts



  • Opened a 36 month lease back in the second half of 2014
  • Payments were $1250/mo + tax
  • Had a ton of problems with the Vehicle
  • Towards the end of 2016 I got a little behind and they allowed me to defer 3 months of payments until the end of the lease ($3,750)
  • Early 2017 I got late again and they came and repossessed the vehicle
  • I sent a wire transfer to get the vehicle back, which took a couple of weeks longer than expected - it got lost and shipped out of state by mistake
  • I got the vehicle back, and then gave it back to them at the end of the lease term


My last statement (Mid 2017) I have says Base payment $3,750 (the 3 months that were deferred) + Previous months lease due $1250 = $5000 + tax + late fee


My credit report shows

  • Scheduled payment of $5000 + tax + late fees - 
  • the payment status AFTER returning the car and with a final balance due some months OK, then 30 days then 60, 60, 60, 60.  It never goes to any sort of 60,90,120, charge-off state



  • Does this make it look like I still have this vehicle that is $5000/mo and 2 months past due
  • Will this continue to extend how long it stays on my credit report for?
  • Shouldn't this lease have reported 30, 60, 90, 120, CO?  I have NOT made any additional payments since 2017
  • I believe the inaccurate information here has cost me money and will continue to do so.
  • What should the next steps be? (Lawyer, Dispute, Call the Leasing Company?- still within the statute of limitations)


Thank You

The Equal Credit Opportunity Status field.    ECOA.   It is an alpha numeric field.  What are those two characters on your credit file(s)? The numeric part is what I am looking to have you tell us.


I should ad that it is easier to determine on an Equifax report.
