2013 and earlier-Honda Odyssey Lease Questions



  • Has anyone ever done a one-pay lease. I am considering it as the value of my trade in is equal to a 36 month, 45k miles one pay lease. I could just sign a normal "monthly" lease and take cash for my trade, but i lose the sales tax benefit. Any thoughts on a single upfront payment lease.
  • Hi. Would you mind telling which dealer. I'm looking for an exl if I can get the same price range with navi that be great! Thanks

    Just got a pretty good deal here in Mass. $299/ month + sales tax = $318. per month incl tax for 3 years 12k miles. Up front was dealer doc fee (299) + 595 acquisition + 100 Ma registration (transfer) + 1st month payment (318). This was a 2012 EX-L msrp 35,855 no extras no nav or res. Dealer also bought out my 2010 Odyssey lease for full payoff amount, which was more generous than competing dealers offered.
  • Hi ogbuffguy. Honda Finance's October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Odyssey Touring with 15,000 miles per year are .00032 and 48%, for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers are exactly the same, other than the price of course, for the Touring Elite model.

    When negotiating your deal on the '12 Odyssey, make sure to take advantage of the $1,250 dealer cash that is currently available on it.

  • Which dealer did u go to. Id love to get a deal like that!
  • Went to try to lease 2012 exl no nav/res. was quoted for 30650. Lease price was 32,000 n change...
    The charges were: bank fee-800. Delivery fees-810. Admin fee 179. Tax 750. Dmv plus plates ~250.
    My question is are these real charges for lease price everyone gets in ny area? That's around 2500 out of pocket with nothing down on lease. If I can get better deal with nav I would rather buy at this point...

    Those fees don't make much sense. The delivery is $830, not $810, and Honda Finance bank fee is $595. Don't do a lease on this car that is not a Honda Finance lease. I would try another dealer. Most in eastern Mass. will do the lease equivalent to a sales price of about $30,100, including delivery (aka Destination). I would definitely try a few more dealerships and ask for a clear breakdown of all upfront fees - then you should be able to figure which are for real for taxes, dmv etc.. Admin fees vary slightly by dealer. If no trade is involved, you should be able to complete all negotiations over email

    I was looking for a 2012 or 2013 Odyssey EX-L with Navi but seems like all the 2012's in the color I want are gone here in the bay area. I have received a quote for 2013 Odyssey EX-L with Navi for around $34, 900 (not including taxes and fees), is this a good deal?
  • Can you disclose who the dealer is. Is it Weymouth Honda?

  • I'm thinking of biting on the 0 down lease rates for a 2012 Odyssey EX or LX in zip 84062 region. Honda is advertising $310 for the LX or $340 for the EX with 0 out of pocket, 35 payments total.

    I'd like to have the residual and lease factor in my pocket as ammunition at the dealer. What are those numbers for this special lease? Is it still possible to negotiate the cap cost down from there?

  • Your best bet is to negotiate the selling price first and then ask them to price the lease based on that negotiated price. Often times, this results in savings from the published lease specials.
  • Does anyone have the November lease rates and residuals for a 2012 and 13 EX-L with RES?

    Does anyone have the lease rate (MF) and residual for a 2013 Touring Elite (3 yrs or 4 yrs with 10K mile /yr) ? Also, any idea what the monthly payment will be with minimum drive off?

  • Hi sharkfighter. Honda Finance's November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Odyssey EX-L with 15,000 miles per year are .00155 and 53% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2012 model are .00013 and 49%.

    There is a $2,000 cash incentive on leases of the '12 EX-L right now, but nothing on the '13 model.

  • Hi zhecks. Honda Finance's November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Odyssey Touring Elite with 10,000 miles per year are .00155 and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    I would be happy to use this program to work up a payment on this van for you if you provide me with its MSRP and approximate selling price. You can find the pricing data over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of

    What lease would be beneficial with the least amount of money?
    2012 or 2013?

    I'm looking for a ExL

    BTW, I love this website and forum!
  • zheckszhecks Posts: 35

    MSRP should be $44,755 including destination charges. Sell Price should be around $41,000 including destination charges. can you give me the monthly payment with $2K drive off. Also, is there a significant difference between a 3 year and 4 year lease (monthly payment).

  • Family is growing, about to add twins to the family. Time to bite the bullet and go mini van.

    Need some advice for purchase/lease in So Cal (San Diego to be exact). Would really pref the EX-L but appears the financing is better on the remaining 2012 EX models. Found one that we like, but not sure what the better option is. 0.9 finance for 60 months sounds attractive, but am I really better off just leasing for 36 months? Was quoted $28789 for an EX, $760 drive off $361.39 for 36 months @12K per year. $17225 residual. Is this an OK deal, or can I push for better? Just very few of the '12's left.

    If we can't get one of the remaining '12's, What should we shoot for on a '13 EX or EX-L?

    Received a different quote on a '13 EX-L of 2013 Honda Odyssey EX-L Model and this price is $33,495.00 which includes the Destination and Handling Cost 12k miles a year for 36 months with $1,750.00 out of pocket investment and a monthly payment of $381.17 with a Residual at the end of $19,775.00 for the 12k mile Lease.

    Planning to make a decision very soon, any help and advice is greatly appreciated!!!!

    Hi Car Man,
    Helping a friend lease a car.
    Can you provide me with the lease rates (RV and MF buy rates ) for 36/12 for 2013 and 2012 Honda Ex-L for December?
    Also, does Honda have any specials promos going?

    As always, with much gratitude to you!
    Thanks very much!
