    Do the LED Daytime running lights on the EXL V6 throw a lot more light at night than the 4 cyl model which has only traditional halogen lights?

    Also, this seems like a pretty good lease deal at Weymouth Honda outside of Boston.

    2013 Accord Sedan EX-L V-6 Special Lease
    $277/month with $1,000 down
    Automatic Transmission. Excludes Tax, $595 Lease Acquisition Fee, $125 Registration fee and $239 Documentation fee. 36 months - 12k miles/year. Expires 11/21/2013.
  • Seems like a pretty good deal.. I just finalized my lease today. Don't have all the details but here is my deal:

    2014 Accord Sport Auto in hematite

    36month / 15k per year

    0 down - no trade

    274.93 a month.

    I was between this and an ex-l which was only 28 more a month but I just liked the look of the sport better.

    I am going to start going to the dealers right after Thanksgiving. Are the money factors good through the end of the year and if not, do you know when they expire?

    I appreciate your help.

    Can someone give me the details on the currently advertised lease deal on a 2013 Accord LX CVT with 12k miles per year for $199?

    The website says
    $1999.00 total due at lease signing. But it also says excludes tax, title, registration, documentation fees, and the like which worries me that they will try to con me into paying expensive weird fees to get out door.

    MSRP: $23,270
    Net Capitalized Cost: $19,600.96
    Net Cap Cost Includes: $595 acquisition fee (not sure what this means)
    Option to Purchase at Lease End: $12,798.50 (is this the residual value?)

    Can someone chime in on what the money factor on this deal? Is there any Honda dealer cash that I can negotiate for on this deal?

  • Thanks kyfdx much appreciated
  • Can you tell me if this included tax. Also, if it's in LA. Thank You. Hope you are enjoying your Accord.
  • I can give you an idea what this means but others on the board could give you more details. The tax is the tax on the monthly amount of your payment. The title and registration is what you have to pay when you buy a car. Every year thereafter you have to pay the registration on your car. Documentation fees vary between dealers. I have seen $80 to around $240 posted on this board. The 12798 payoff after the lease end is what you would pay plus the tax on that to acquire the car. If you were to go the zero down route that payoff amount would be higher. There is also a small tire fee. When they say dealer contribution may vary, that has to do with basically the profit for the dealer. I would say the extra shouldn't be more than 800 plus the 1999.
  • My son recently completed and signed a new lease for a Honda Civic. He has been a loyal Honda Customer and this is his third Civic. He negotiated the price for the new Civic, provided the first month’s payment and drove off with his new car. A week later, the Dealer called back stating that Honda Financial decided “NOT” to honor the contract due to his credit score and that he needed to return the car. This is after they had cashed his first payment!

    By way of full disclosure, he had previously been laid off from his job during the summer and had been late with a few payments. He has since found a great position and is again working full time.

    What we can’t understand is “HOW IN THE WORLD” did the Finance Manager at the Dealership review all of the numbers, then sit down and have him sign all of the paperwork, give him the keys to his new car and now say that they don’t want to stand by the lease. And in fact, he needs to return the car? There was NEVER any discussion as to the lease being ‘dependent’ on Honda Financial having to review the loan first. There was NOTHING in all the paperwork that he brought home including the lease agreement indicating that the lease was ‘pending’. And, as I have mentioned, they cashed his first payment???

    Why would they let him drive off the lot in a brand new car if there was a question OR, if something was still pending?

    We believe that it is an issue that the Dealership needs to take up with Honda Financial and it was their mistake. The Dealership is stating that ‘oh, we are sorry but you have to return the car’! Does my son have any recourse?

    Thanks in advance for your inights and suggestions,
    RTS in Charlotte

    This is known as a 'spot delivery' and it happens all the time for both regular purchase financing as well as leasing.

    The dealer is hoping that when they want the car back, the customer will have fallen in love with it and resign paperwork at a higher price, rate or payment.

    I don't think there is much recourse as the deal isn't financed. Do you know what your son's credit score is?

    Hiker - you've been providing some great info and advice but just to clarify and make sure no one misunderstands - the residual (what you referred to as payoff at end of lease) is not affected by how much, if anything, is paid at signing to get into a lease. The residual is a percentage of msrp set by the lessor based on the estimated value of the vehicle at lease end. The length and mileage terms of the lease do, however, affect the residual percentage.

  • Thanks for the information. It looks like there isn't much recourse since the lease wasn't finaliized with the 'loan' through Honda Financial. My son's credit score is 654.

    Talk to the dealer .. they may be willing to re-write the contract with a higher money factor, which would increase the payment a bit.

    Keep us posted and let us know how it all turns out.

    I have been reading and learning, but need a little guidance...

    Dealer is offering the following…

    2014 Accord Sport (located in mid-Missouri)


    MSRP 25,305
    Selling 22,500
    LEV RT / AMT 58%, 14,676
    MF .00063
    Capped Feeds 694
    Adj. Cap, 23,194
    Upfront fees (not sure what this is) 112.50
    Amt. Due at start 372.95
    Pymnt 260.45 (tax not included)

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

    Selling price is not too bad at 700 below invoice. Residual and money factor ok. All in all not a killer deal but not that bad. Have you tried multiple dealers to get some competition going? Do any dealers have the 500 flex cash left? Would lower your payment to around 245 plus tax.

  • Bill,

    thanks for the feedback.

    I have tried, but have not pushed too hard. There are two dealers within 30mins, then its another 2hrs to quite a few. I feel somewhat restricted...

    The dealer who gave the quote I listed in my first message adamantly refused to do anything further on the price. I told him that I felt they could reduce the selling price further, but they balked.

    I sent the numbers to the other dealer and he said, sure we can beat it, but has not come back with new data.

    I do have a 2011 Accord LX-P that will be coming off a 3yr lease with 32k with an approx. 14.2k buyout. That car is in perfect condition. I did not include that in any discussion of the new deal...not sure if that is correct.

  • gmanusmcgmanusmc SoCalPosts: 436
    Your 2011 is probably worth only 11-12k on trade in so turning it in at lease end is probably your best option. You might be able to get a few hundred more off the selling price working with your two local dealers. Give it a try and see what happens. The deal you have is not that bad so you're probably not going to get much more - that sport model is nice.
