  • Acura Ilx with Tech Package, $6000 down, $221 a month out the door. Never have leased before and was wondering what othe questions i should be asking. Please help, thanks.
  • No other upfront payment?
    What about taxes, title, and doc fees?

    If all you pay is $6,000 and pay just $221/mo... sounds like a good deal.

    That is possibly the worst possible advice you could ever give somebody regarding a lease.

    Are you kidding me? 6000k down, why don't you just buy the car. You NEVER put that much down on a lease, the whole point of leasing is to have a really low down payment. You shouldn't be putting anything more than 2000k down on a lease like this. With that down payment, your monthly payments should be around the $329 ball park, if they aren't hosing you.

    Welcome uconninurface. Since you are new to leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles on the subject that are available here at Edmunds.com: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    In short, the easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor.

    Let me begin by saying that $6,000 is way too much money to put down when leasing. I always advise consumers to put as little as possible down on leased vehicles. If your vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered there is a good chance that any money that you put down will be lost. Even though your monthly payment will be higher, it is much safer to go with a zero down lease.

    What you need to find out is what selling price the dealer is charging you for this car.

  • Hi - could someone help me out with the following? I am trying to find out the money factor and residual value for the 2.0 ILX with Premium package on a 36-month, 10,000 miles/yr lease.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    David
  • On 9/31 I leased a ILX with Premium & Tech packages for 39 Months.10K per month These are the figures:
    Total down.........$2300.
    38 Monthly payments of...........$325.
    I could not be more pleased with this car. In recent years I've
    had BMW [2], Lexus [3] Infinity [3] Audi [1] Cadillac CTS, and Lincoln MKZ. So far, I can honestly say, ILX compares favorably to all of them.
  • Sorry. It was 8/31
  • Here's the information that you're looking for David. Honda Finance's September buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 ILX Premium with 10,000 miles per year are .00024 and 61%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

  • Could you post the money factor and residual value for the 2.4 ILX 6-Speed Manual with Premium package on a 36-month, 12,000 miles/yr lease. Thanks.

    Looks like they have a special too, $239.00 per month for 36 months. $2,299.00 total due at signing. I know your not supposed to put alot down on a car but I'm trading in an old car hoping to get $3000 for it. True car says the car should be 28,203 ($1892 off MSRP) if I could get it for that price how much would it drop the monthly payements? The offer I posted is based off $30,094 MSRP. Thanks.
  • Hi brooklynaudi. Acura's November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 ILX Premium with 12,000 miles per year are .00024 and 60% for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    There's nothing wrong with trading in your current car when leasing a new one, but you would be better off having the dealer cut you a check for any equity that you have in your trade rather than use the proceeds from it as a down payment on your new vehicle.

  • Hello again, Car_man.

    My wife is interested in leasing an ILX Hybrid with Technology Package.

    Same residual and money factor as for the gas engine ILX's?

    Any dealer cash or other incentives out there?

    Thanks for your help.
  • All the deals in here appear to be for a 36 month lease. Does Honda/Acura Finance have any offers for a 24 month lease of the ILX?

    Hi dmgoodman,

    I looked at the ILX Hybrid over the summer and the residual was lower than on the gas models. The money factor was the same. I am not sure if this still stands but would believe it may. Car_man would have more specific data, but if time is of the essence I wanted to provide the experience I had.

    We wound up getting a Volvo S60 in August and waiting until Spring to lease our hybrid. I will let you know that my wife and I compared the ILX Hybrid to the Optima Hybrid and we both preferred the Kia. It was faster, took regular gas and had more features (cooled memory seats, heated steering wheel, dual sunroofs etc). At that point, the Optima Hybrid also was about $100 per month less to lease. I am still considering the ILX in the Spring but leaning towards the Kia.

    Happy Hunting!!
  • Theras,

    Thanks for sharing that information.

    To be honest, the ILX wouldn't be my first choice. However, its the car my wife wants to get.

    She has refused to look at it objectively - or at least from my point of view. :D

    Hey dmgoodman, I know how that can be!! Good luck with the car hunting and hopefully Car_Man can get you more specific leasing information.

    Hey all I just leased an ILX today in the South Bay California area for 36 months. I put $400.00 down and will pay $367.98 per month (for 35 months) including tax & license. And it also included a 36 month maintenance package that changes oil, rotate tires etc...

    It is a Black on Black ILX premium package and Tech package!

    Oh and the residual value is $19,377.

    It seems like a good deal to me as compared to what others have posted on here.
  • How many miles yearly in this lease? Good job
  • rwarrwar Posts: 2
    Rob - 12,000 miles per year and it was at Power Acura south bay in Torrance CA.

    Pretty good experience with all the sales man and thier finance guy.
  • Hey dmgoodman. Through the end of the year, Acura's buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 ILX Hybrid Technology with 15,000 miles per year are .00024 and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    There is now a $750 cash incentive on leases of this car.
