Lease good?

edited April 2016 in Honda
I currently have a 2013 dodge dart rallye turbo and owe 16200 mines 1600 for a refundable warranty from carmax. I don't want to be underwater in 3 or so years (I won't keep it 6 years). Kbb trade in is around 11k. Honda is offering me a 2016 civic ex t lease 22,300$ car 15k miles a year X 36 750$ down 340$ a month. Including taking care of my dodge, is this a good deal?

    Sounds like a lot for a Civic. You are $5K under water on the Dart now? Just keep making payments until you aren't.

    Is it possible for you to refinance the current loan to get a lower interest rate and also to lower your payment?

    No lenders will approve me, somehow carmax did and dealers will lease. I tried lending tree, capital one and chase. No luck. My car is about 3k underwater now

    You can't trade your way out of that.. keep making the payments.

    Or, find a relative that is earning 2% on a CD, and offer them 6%.

    .00083 and 62% for EX-T.

    Would need to know the MSRP, adjusted cap cost, breakdown of the $1200, state and tax rate and the details behind the negative equity to comment.

    Ask the dealer; they should be able to tell you.

    If they can't (or won't), then it's time to find another dealer that is more transparent.

    One more thing - the negative equity you have is adding almost $100/mo to the payment. Why are you wanting out of your current car?

    It may be best to wait and narrow the gap on the negative equity.

    The car that I have now the dodge dart. I am unsure of its reliability and depreciation. Not being able to refinance and having a 72 month loan term, down the road with 15k miles a year I don't want to be underwater majorly. It was my first adult car decision and got me to the point that lenders view me serious

    The longer you hold on to it, the less upside down you will be. I doubt that it is so unreliable that it will leave you stranded.

    My .02, it's your money.
