2013 and earlier-Honda CR-V Lease Questions



  • blueiedgodblueiedgod Posts: 2,803
    Just went to dealer and they pi$$ed me off! Tried to give me $16,200 for my 2007 CRV with 29K. Then they wanted me to give them $3600 dp for a monthly payment of $252. Residual value was 63% which made buy out $16K+ at end of lease. They should have offered me at least $17,400 for my trade and I think residual should have been 57% plus they were charging me full price for car. I got mad at finace guy and walked out. He was a jerk. My salesman is a good guy and I felt bad for him. Finance guy killed the deal. I'm going to another Honda dealer today or tomorrow, hope to do better. Any words of advice from anyone before I go to the next dealer? Thanks!

    Let me get this straight. You have leased a 2007 CR-V, right? And you are trying to buy it out?

    Why are you going to dealers?

    Your lease agreement should state what your buy out is at the end of the term, unless it does not allow you to purchase it at the end of the lease term.

    Is it LX, EX? 2WD, AWD? What state are you in?

    Do you own the 2007?

    Are you leasing the 2010?

    What is wrong with 2007 that you want out of it into the same 2010?

    It's really difficult to tell whether or not you got a good deal. From the data you provided in post #733, the 2007 CR-V selling price appears to have been 24,000 and the gross cap 24,595 (24,000 + 595 acq fee). I have no idea what a competitive selling price on a 2007 CR-V would have been three years ago. My best guess is that it appears reasonable. Your money factor was 0.00300 which equates to 7.20%. Don't know what market rates were back then but it seems kind of high. Did you have Tier 1 credit?

    I can't comment on the 5,128 that they gave you for your trade because I have no idea what your trade was worth.

    I can tell you that all the calculations appear to be done correctly including the NY sales tax calculation at 8.00%.

    Last week I leased a 2010 4WD Honda CR-V EX w/ 12,000 miles per year, 36 months.

    I put only taxes, DMV fees and first month's payment down (about $1400), and the payments are $275 a month.

    This is my first Honda and only my second lease. How'd I do? :blush:

    New to leasing so I may ask 'foolish' questions...
    Should I be putting more $$$$ into the down payment of a lease to lower the monthly rate or is that counter productive???
    Post # 741 shows a $275 payment with only $1400 down!
    What would the Money factor for that deal work out to?
    Toyota is offering me .ooo2 MF which I think is good...
    so it probably means they are beating me somewhere else, right???
    BTW I am torn between RAV, CR-V, or Prius ???

    Hi veno12. You never mentioned what this vehicle's selling price is. This is a very important number to know when leasing. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Without the selling price, it is more difficult to tell how large a dealer discount you are being given, and in turn if there is more room left to negotiate. Let us know what this number is and I'm sure that either myself or another knowledgeable community member will tell you what they think.

    Welcome CapeCod. Since you are new to leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles on the subject that are available here at 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.

    In answer to your specific question, it is in your best interest to put as little money down as possible when leasing. Consumers who make large down payments on leased vehicles risk losing part or all of them if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered. Even though it means that your monthly payment will be a little higher, it's much safer to go with a zero down lease.

    I'd be happy to help you out, r56mellowyell.

    Honda Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2010 CR-V EX-L 4WD without navigation with 12,000 miles per year are .00137 and 66%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00137 and 59%.

    Hi supera. The selling price that you were given for your CR-V is right around dealer invoice. I doubt that the Honda dealer marked up your vehicle's money factor, so this looks like a very good deal to me. Enjoy your new ride :) !

    Car_man, please excuse my ignorance. When you give a residual percentage is that off of the negotiated price of the vehicle? If so why is the MSRP always mentioned? Thanks for your help. I enjoy your posts and have learned a lot.

    The residual is a percentage of MSRP...

    You didn't indicate the adjusted MSRP after the dealer installed wood trim and so I am assuming it's $28,525. Dealer profit is irrelevant. However, I can promise you that the total dealer profit on this vehicle is much more than $250.

    All calculations have been done correctly. I can't vouch for the money factor (mf). Is the mf the buy rate (i.e., the mf with 0 dealer profit)? The selling price seems very high. You may want to check or overstock at for low competitive selling prices in your area. Check Edmunds invoice pricing as well as incentive offers, if any, on this vehicle. Also, it seems a little strange that the difference between the total (gross) cap cost and selling price is $53.23. What does the $53.23 represent? It just doesn't look right.

  • Adjusted MSRP is $28,525...thought the selling price was pretty close to invoice but I'll double check.

  • indicates a good selling price as anything less than $27,500....that's without wood trim.

    Edmunds TMV What Others are Paying indicates a selling price of $27,091 also w\out wood trim.

    Wood trim in this case was $325

    My selling price was $27,160.71
    The Total cap cost was $27,213.94

    Any other thoughts given this info?

    Thank you very much!
