Does anyone offer a completely comprehensive lease program, where everything is covered by the lease except gas? All scheduled maintenance, wheels, tires, alignments, brakes, battery, wipers, etc.

i'm pretty sure VW has some pretty good deals on those. perfect lease car too, as you're almost gaunteed not to own any of those electrical "gremlins" they are somewhat known for

i don't lease, but if i did i would look that way

but the "wheels, tires, alignments, brakes, battery, wipers" part may go beyond "scheduled maintenance"

you ask for a lot, my friend

Scheduled maintainance does not cover wear tiems that differ with different people and use. Batteries are covered three years on warranty;I have used it.I am not even sure anyone would sell insurance on that without abuse standards.Most leases i fact cover abuse but you pay for it beyond normal wear.

Some manufacturers such as BMW and VW offer "free" maintenance included as part of the price of a new car purchase/lease (e.g., BMW's program is 4yr/50K miles and does cover brakes and wipers in addition to "typical" maintenance).

No one AFAIK covers tires, alignment, etc. in these programs, naturally. Dealerships will sell you wheel & tire insurance, but that's a separate thing entirely (it's road hazard insurance, not to replace a wearable item such as a tire which has worn out)

BMW.

No one covers tires, but their maintenance program covers everything else.

Thanks everyone for your input. Having done a few leases in the past, I was curious. I've done a few leases in the past, and I honestly hated having to put money into a vehicle that I didn't get to keep in the long-run.

Then leasing again probably isn't for you.

BMW covers everything, and Audi used to too-but now they charge an additional $800 for their 3yr maintenance package. IIRC, Volvo has just started to cover scheduled maintenance too (but I don't know if it's for all models).
