2013 and earlier-Honda Civic Lease Questions



  • Would love to know where you got this deal, as I am in the market and am being quoted $239/month...Thanks
  • I'm looking for a new lease (2010 Honda Civic LX) in NJ. I see has a lease program of $219.00 a month/$219.00 plus tax title etc, which is probably another $1500.00. But I know the dealers can do better than what is listed on Honda's website. I'm looking to see what other people in NJ has paid recently & if I am better getting a lease now or waiting a few more weeks for the end of the year, for the best price.
  • Got a quote today for $224.00 per month (30 months) plus 5.6% tax with no money down other then 1st months payment $237.00 and dealership fee $159.00 and registration fee $89.00 for a total due at delivery of $485.00.

    I think I can do better and wait till December 24th at closing time or new years eve at closing time. This was for an 09 civic.

    I know I can do much better and for a fresh 2010 and not a 09 that has "Lot Rot" on it.

    Should I wait?

    Let me know.

  • I didn't think there were any 2009's left. What NJ dealership did you go to?
  • I'd wait until the week of the 28th when the rush to have a brand-new-Civic-with-a-giant-bow-on-top-in-the-driveway-Christmas-morning rush is done and over with. The dealers should be more motivated to meet their month-end AND year-end incentives.

    That's what I'm going to do... until then I'm driving a junky pickup!
  • 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 Honda Civic LX Coupe with 15,000 miles per year are .00065 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2010 Civic EX Coupe (non-L, without nav) are .00137 and 57%.

  • Here you go, zoran. Honda Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Honda Civic Si Sedan without navigation with 12,000 miles per year are .00147 and 61%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Super Preferred" credit tier.

    The money factor for an otherwise identical lease of a '10 Civic Coupe Si is the same, but its residual value is 2% lower.

    Honda Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a "Super Preferred" 36 month lease of a 2010 Insight EX without navigation with 12,000 miles per year are .00122 and 64%. The addition of navigation slices 2% off of this car's residual value.

  • Hi vagabondchef. I haven't worked up payments on both, but I suspect that the fact that Honda has pulled the plug on its special lease program for the 2009 Civic will make it more expensive to lease than a 2010 model, even with the $750 dealer cash that is available on leftovers.

    Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
  • Hey vagabondchef. Honda Finance's lease program for the Civic varies by trim level, term, and mileage allowance. Let me know what these variables are and I'll gladly give you an idea of what the current program is like for the car or cars that you're interested in. Thanks.

  • Hi wingnut6. Generally speaking you are correct, manufacturers' official advertised payments usually leave a little meat on the bone so to speak. Consumers are almost always able to negotiate lower selling prices with dealers on vehicles than the ones that were used to arrive at their advertised payments. Having said this, the Honda Civic isn't exactly a high margin vehicle so there probably won't be a tremendous amount of room to work with.

  • I just received a deal for 2010 civic LX model Lease.
    $557 down - includes registration , title 1st payment
    $188 / month includes tax..
    Can you tell me if this is a good deal? or can i do better w/ the new lease program?
    Thanks for your help!
  • babtoki, can you share where you got this deal?
  • I received this deal from Huntington Beach Honda in California.
  • This is a great deal. i just got a 2010 civic lx lease for 30 months 12K/yr no money down except 1st month payment, dmv fees, etc for $230 (NY state tax included)
  • There was another offer from Norm reeves superstore for 0 down and $205 month. But it's the same thing as the previous dealer they just divided up the payment of the 1st payment dmv fees into the monthly i'm trying to get the payment lowered $15 more dollars..then it will be TMV value for the i'll let you know. i gotta purchase it within the next 2 weeks..
  • I'm looking to lease a Civic EX sedan. I'm a bit confused on a few key areas: purchase price I should be negotiating with, and money factor and residual %.

    The TMV for 2010 EX, in NYC area is listed as totally $19,993 (including the delivery charge). Yet, when asked for online quotes I received two. One for $18,652 and one for $18,044. Obviously there might be some strings attached to these deals, but that's still considerably lower than the TMV.

    Second, I don't know the MF and residual percentage. Actually, a dealership has just offered me a $259/mo 36 month, 12k, $0 down lease. Dealer told me Residual % was 65% but could not tell the Money Factor over the phone. Is this an accurate residual, and what is the Money Factor?

    I'm a first time buyer so I'm trying hard to be as well equiped as possible.

    Thanks for your help!
  • Just closed deal on a Civic 2010 EXL in an Atlanta area dealership.
    Sticker = $22,515

  • I'm new to the year end purchasing, and looking for info on the typical lease and financing changes after the year end specials expire, which appear to end on 1/4. Do the prices typically stay the same, decrease or increase, comparing to prior years and/or expectations for the current year.

    Also, anyone have any suggestions for less hassle, good price dealerships in the nyc area?
  • I am currently looking at leasing a civic EX sedan w/ navi. Could someone tell me what the money factor and residual is currently?

    I was trading in my car (4,200 in equity) and on a EX sedan AT (w/out navi) they quoted me:

    30 months - 0 out of pocket (cause of trade-in), 229-244 a month for 12k miles and a residual of $13836.90
  • Leased the 2010 Civic LX last friday for..$174.00 / per month, 30months, 12,000 miles and 12,807 residual 0 down and 0.00065 money factor.
  • zoranzoran Posts: 69
    for civic si non navigation, mf was 0.00137 for 30 mo, with 66% residual for 3o mo, mf was higher i think for 36 mo, residual was lower by 2%? drive off for us, including all state fees/first payment $683. They have to give you honda buy rate.
  • I just came back a lease deal on a 2010 Honda EX Sedan. Got the deal from Bay Ridge Honda in Brooklyn, NY.

    The deal is the following:
    MSRP: 20965
    Negotiated Selling Price: 19615
    Money Factor: .00137
    Residual %: 66
    Term: 30 mos.
    Monthly payment: 238.43
    $595 Bank Fee + $74 Doc Fee + 280 Title Fee+ $635.18 Tax up Front

    This is about $300 less than Edmunds TMV.
  • I am new to leasing and wanted to know if I got a good deal:

    2010 Civic LX Automatic. 30 months, 12k a year

    $0 down, monthly payment of $152 (includes tax)

    I had to pay $1,140 up front for the tax, title, registration, and acquisition fee.

    Is this a good deal? Did I get taken?
