The Grand Prize Winner may select the vehicle and will enter into a two-year lease agreement with Lessor;
however, the total amount the Sponsor will award and pay toward any two-year lease will not exceed $18,000.
Grand Prize winner may opt for the cash option of $5,000 in lieu of the two -year lease of a vehicle. $5,000 will
be awarded in the form of a check to the Grand Prize Winner.
Grand Prize Winner will need to meet all dealer/lease qualifications in order to be awarded the two-year lease.
Color of the vehicle, Equipment and Accessories of the actual vehicle awarded may vary as Sponsor reserves
the right to approve a vehicle select by a Grand Prize Winner. In the event a Grand Prize is awarded, the Grand
Prize Winner will be required to sign a motor vehicle lease agreement (the “Lease”) with Lessor which will
govern all terms and conditions of his/her use, operation and possession of the vehicle for the twenty-four (24)
month term of the Lease, and the Grand Prize Winner must comply with all terms and conditions of the Lease
during the twenty-four (24) month term, including mileage. Grand Prize Winner must be available to sign the
appropriate documentation on the date indicated by the Sponsor or the vehicle may be forfeited, without
compensation of any kind. Once verified, Grand Prize Winner will be required to pick up the vehicle at the
dealership specified by Sponsor, subject to any other terms provided herein. Grand Prize Winner must
provide a valid driver’s license and evidence of legally required automobile liability insurance at time the
Lease is signed in order to take possession of the vehicle. Grand Prize Winner shall be solely responsible for
all travel or transportation costs, associated with winning a vehicle, except as otherwise provided herein. If, after
acceptance of the vehicle, Grand Prize Winner violates the terms of the Lease, as determined by Lessor (or
Lessor’s financing affiliate) in its sole discretion, Lessor may take any and all available legal sanctions against the
Grand Prize Winner as if he/she were any other Lessee of the Lessor (or Lessor’s financing affiliate). Should
Lessor (or Lessor’s financing affiliate) pursue such legal sanctions, Sponsor will deem the vehicle forfeited by the
Grand Prize Winner without further obligation to the Grand Prize Winner and; (a) Grand Prize Winner will be
required to return the vehicle to the Lessor (or Lessor’s financing affiliate at Lessor’s sole discretion); or (b)
(provided that Grand Prize Winner is still in possession of the vehicle, as determined by Lessor in their sole
discretion) Grand Prize Winner will owe in full payment for all remaining months of the twenty-four (24) month
Lease Period in excess of the amount awarded and will be responsible for any and all other damages assessed
by Lessor (or Lessor’s financing affiliate). In accordance with the terms and conditions of the Lease, all service,
parts, materials and repairs in connection with the use and operation of the vehicle during the term of the Lease,
including but not limited to gasoline, oil, batteries, tires, tubes, repairs or maintenance arising from any misuse
or negligent use of the vehicle, and/or towing are at Grand Prize Winner’s expense. All manufacturer’s
recommended maintenance services found in the Owner’s Manual provided by the manufacturer in connection
with the use and operation of the vehicle during the Lease term, including all service and maintenance required
by the manufacturer’s warranty, will be done or caused to be done by Grand Prize Winner at his/her sole
expense at an authorized dealer. In accordance with the terms and conditions of the Lease, the vehicle shall not
be used where excessive mileage and/or misuse alters the condition and/or value of the vehicle for resale and
the vehicle shall not be used or operated in a negligent, improper or unsafe manner, or in violation of any Law,
or in any manner as to void any insurance covering same. No modifications or alterations shall be made to the
vehicle during the term of the Lease. To the extent there are any modifications or alterations to the vehicle,
including without limitation any replacements, substitutions or additions of parts or equipment to the vehicle, all
said items shall be accessions to the vehicle and shall become the sole property of Lessor. Upon expiration or
termination of the Lease, Grand Prize Winner shall immediately surrender the vehicle, in the same condition as
received (reasonable wear and tear excepted) to the Lessor as further defined in the Lease.
