2013 and earlier-Honda Accord Lease Questions

    Hi ejv207. Here's the information that you're looking for.

    Honda Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Accord Sedan LX 4-cylinder with 12,000 miles per year are .00158 and an outstanding 60%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    I haven't seen the factor for Honda Finance's Preferred tier, but I'll ask around and see what I can find out.

    Hi angus215. It's difficult to say what Honda's new July lease program will be like at this point, but I will gladly provide you with an update if you check back with me some time after the 7th when the new program is introduced.

  • I was told when I leased my new 2010 Honda Accord that I would NOT be charged for additional mileage over 12K if I.... (1) traded the vehicle in towards another Honda vehicle at the end of the lease, (2) purchased the Honda Accord at the end of the lease, (3) or sold the vehicle outright to another party. I was told that I would only be charged for additional miles if I turned the vehicle in at the end of the lease agreement and walked away. Both the finance manager and general manager of the dealership signed a short statement for me backing up this claim that I would not be charged for miles. You may want to ask your salesperson about this and get it in writing. My lease was with Honda Finance and the vehicle was purchased at a Honda dealership. I told the salesperson that I did not want to lease a car but then when he assured me that I would NOT be charged for extra miles if I purchased or leased a new Honda vehicle at the end of the lease then I decided to lease instead of purchase. I always buy Honda's so I saw no problem with leasing the car then (instead of buying).
  • gperr,

    what dealership was this? I've been working with Burns in Marlton (my Ridgeline lease is ending soon), and i'm not liking what they're telling me. They aren't even in the ballpark.

    The finance guy was trying to throw a selling price of $26, 063 out there. Of course, i expect a call and an email by next week with another offer. I'd rather not deal with these guys if they want to play too many games.

    I bought mine at Burns. Was that price for a Accord Sedan EX-L? that is a way too high price. Could they be thinking you want the V6? Mine was the 4 cylinder not V6. They had a ton of them. Now the images and info on the 2011 Accords is out- so you would think they would be looking to move some 2010 units before the 2011's come in.

    I would go to and spec out your car and get a price from the 3 local dealers. Then go back and see if they will match or beat it. If not, go to one of those other dealers. I had no problem, My experience there was great. I have bought a few cars there before, and also brought in a number of other buyers to them. But if they would not give me the best price, I would go somewhere else.

    Good luck.

    Hey all,

    Does anyone know the residual on the I4 2010 Accord EX-L with (and without) Navigation? (12k/36mo). Also, if you have it too, what is the residual on the EX?

    Thanks so much!
  • yeah, i was hoping that it was Burns that gave you that (after you said they included that extra package of mud flaps, wheel locks, vin etching and trunk mat, the lightbulb popped on).

    I definitely was talking about the 4 cyl...their guy tried to even tell me there's no way he could get an EX-L that low (and I offered them $315/mo for a 36mo/12k lease) and suggested the EX trim if i wanted it in that range. I just laughed and told them i'm not budging and left. Maybe later in the month they will come around when they need to reach their numbers.

    I liked our sales guy, he was nice. He helped me get my Ridgeline last time there. I also leased a 2004 Accord EX from there before that. I kind of felt disrespected. Funny thing is...I was using your deal that I read on here to tell the guy that I know this trim level had been lease at around $300 with less than 1k down. He of course acted like there was no way.

    anyways, if you have any more advice to make some noise at Burns, please email me., Thanks!

    Hi newyork4me. Honda's June lease program is scheduled to run through today, July 6th. I can provide you with the details of its June program now and you can check back with me in a day or two for the info on the new July program.

    Through July 6th, Honda Finance's buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Accord Sedan EX-L 4-cylinder without navigation with 12,000 miles per year are .00158 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an EX-L 4-cyl. with Navigation are .00158 and 56%.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a base EX Sedan are .00158 and 60%.

    When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take the $1,200 dealer cash that is currently available on it into account.

    I haven't leased a car before, but went into a local dealership looking to buy an LX automatic late last week - negotiated a sale price of 17,500, which seemed more than fair. After thinking it over I am leaning towards leasing. The dealer has a lot of 2009's on the lot - mostly 4cyl EX's. I'm assuming the dealer would be able to lease the 09's? If yes, what would incentives look like on an 09 - any idea what the money factor would look like? Would it affect the residual since it is an 09? I'm planning on having them run lease numbers on the LX and an 09 EX side by side to see how they shake out.

    I have an 04 to trade in - should I have them reduce the Cap with my trade or would they cut me a check for remaining portion of my trade? I know June incentives are up today - would it be smart to see what July brings or move on it today?

    Thanks for your help!

    I got some quotes online and went in to 3 dealerships today to get quotes on a 12k/36mo lease for a new Coupe LX-S w/AT. No extra options, just the standard car. Spent 3-4 hours at the first dealership and ended up walking on the final offer there. The next two dealerships couldn't match the first offer.

    The final offer at the first dealership was: Zero down, $296/month. Was I turning down a good deal? Can I do better?

    I'm from FL, sales tax is 7%, and dealer fees are ridiculous. Any input or opinions are greatly appreciated. I am considering going back tomorrow morning.

    Welcome andrewd1. Technically one can indeed still lease a 2009 Accord. However, Honda is not providing lease support on leftover '09 models any longer. Honda is providing lease support on 2010 models however. As a result, the difference in cost between leasing an '09 and a '10 model might not be nearly as much as you would initially think, of there is any difference at all. If I was in the market for a new Accord right now, I personally would go with a 2010 model.

    Hey everyone,

    I was just wondering if anyone had any info on current deals on EX-L's both 4cyl and 6cyl with no nav? Residuals, invoice numbers, and such? I know things may have changed given the event they had going just ended. I am looking for a 36 mo/12k lease in the next week or so. Would the deals radically change after this event? Would a dealer still give me pricing from this sales event?

    Thanks for your help!

    After reading through the posts today I learned about - so I checked out that site today and requested for the dealers who offered the lowest price for the car I was interested in. It showed three different dealers and showed the low prices they are willing to offer. Bottom line is one contacted me and offered 25,916 with 2.9% making the monthly payment 335.00 with taxes. They are over an hour away so I told them I wanted all the details worked out in advance so I could just show up and sign the paperwork and pick up the car.

    I'm concerned when I show up the terms will change. Has anyone had experience with using the dealers and the info they provide? I was working with a local dealer and called him after I talked to this truecar guy and told him what they were offering and said I wanted to give him a chance to match it. He doesn't seem to think I'll get this deal when I show up.

    I'm going to meet with a dealer tomorrow I found on truecar who said they will do 25,916 sales price with .00121 MF (2.9%) which will give me a monthly payment of 335.00 with taxes, etc. This is for a EX-L v6.

    I'm hoping nothing changes when I show up. I'm wondering if you've come across better deals during your research. Any info you could share would be appreciated.

    The dealer gave us an offer for leasing 2010 Accord EX coup: 2000 down, 250 per month, 36 mo. MSRP 25430.

    How about the deal? Is that good? :confuse:

    I am in the last month of a 3 year lease on a 2007 Honda Accord EX-SE. Because I wasn't sure what I was going to do at the end of the lease, I had the inspection done. I will owe no excess wear & tear, but I am significantly over mileage due to an unexpected job change during the lease.

    Anyway, my pay-off should I decide to purchase the 2007 is $15,000 & change. That's probably the easiest thing to do. My other option would be to lease a 2010 Accord and try to get them to waive the excess mileage fees on the old lease. Has anyone done that successfully? My credit rating is good but does anyone ever really get those teaser lease rates they advertise? Right now, it's $0 money down, no first month's payment, and $270/month for 35 months on the basic Accord. Does anyone really get that deal?

    I am also coming off a 3 year lease of a 2007 exl v6 in beg of Aug. I am very happy with it and ready to lease another.
    Before I do -
    how does the Camry XLE compare to the Honda.
    Has Toyota solved the recall problems.

    Does anyone have the lease details such as residual % and money factor rate for a 36 month 12,000 miles for both the exl v6 and the xle v6

    Thanks Gary
  • Carman,

    Can you please provide the MF and Residual for a 2010 Honda Accord Sedan EX-L V6 with Nav? Looking to pull the trigger on a 36/12 lease, living in Wisconsin.

    I have offer to lease 2010 Honda Accord automatic S trim for $999 cap cost + $295 doc fee + $125 plates/registration = $1,410 at signing (plus first month payment) with a $148 a month payment.

    thoughts? seems good to me. I think there is very little we will want to buy it after 3 years, so I don't care much if they moved up the price of the car in order to be able to make this offer.
  • Skip the $999 cap cost... Looking at Honda's website, they have a nationwide $0 down sign and drive going on for the Accord Sedan. However, I'm not so sure that applies to Coupe models.
