    Follow-up question for you.

    Currently see a lease special on the Honda website for CA/OR customers for $289/mo (excluding tax/etc of course) with $2999 down.

    Lease details show MSRP: $34295 with capitalized cost of: $23838. Difference of roughly ~$10450.

    How do they come by that difference with $2999 down and $6000 lease cash?

    Thanks!

    Sorry, another question as well.

    Say I qualify for such a lease offer (as mentioned above) with a capitalized cost of ~$23800. In the same lease details RV is mentioned at $13718.

    If I am to increase the size of my down payment, say instead of $2999 down I go with $8000 down, how does that play out in terms of monthly payments (not asking for specific numbers here just the concept).
    Similarly, if I make a down-payment sizeable enough to make the difference between the RV and cap-cost a few thousand dollars, can I expect monthly payments so be extremely low?

    Thanks again!

    There is also a discount from the sticker price by the dealer (aka "Dealer Contribution")

    More down payment equates to a lower monthly payment. It's simple math.

    But - here's the risk. You put $8000 down on your new car, and it gets totaled on your drive home from the dealer. The insurance only covers the remaining lease obligation (35 payments of $xxx/mo). You lose the up front cash.

    And, it doesn't really change the total cost of the lease - you're just front loading it.

    Would you give your landlord $8000 in rent, up front, to have a lower payment? The whole idea behind a lease is to pay as you go.

    My recommendation is to pay only the first payment and DMV costs up front, and add everything else into the lease payment - fees, etc. And, skip any sort of down payment.

    All makes perfect sense, I see your point clearly.

    But humor me and walk me through this hypothetical scenario that I may be considering.

    Say that I take advantage of the lease offer as explained above and I go with a large down-payment enough to make the difference between the RV and cap-cost just $2000. In that scenario, say a few months later down the line I decide I want to buyout the car. What might I be expecting in terms of total cost associated with the early termination and buyout?

    I know I'd have to pay the difference between cap-cost and RV (but considering a large down-payment) that would only be around $2000, then I'd have an early termination-fee (not sure how much those go for), I'd have the RV (plus purchase-option fee??), and lastly any sales taxes.

    How would you say that scenario plays out?

    I understand I would lose money in terms of an early-termination fee but assume in my scenario that I *have* to put down a large down-payment (of money that is given through a local program, so I'm not at a loss putting down that large down-payment).

    What do you think?

    Thanks again.

    You've sort of lost me?

    Why initiate a lease, only to buy it out?

    You'll pay lease specific fees for no reason.

    If you want to keep the car past the lease term, just buy it from the start.

    And, the buyout is roughly the residual value plus the sum of the remaining payments.

    What local program is this where you'll get money for a down payment?

    Suffice it to say, the program (replace your ride) offers up to $9500 down towards the lease/purchase of a plug-in vehicle.

    The benefit of going for the lease is that the $7500 federal tax credit (which is what I'm assuming the $6000 lease cash mostly stems from) is taken by Honda and passed down to the customer as incentive (I'm assuming).

    Whereas if I purchase the vehicle outright, I'll put the $9500 down (via RYR) and the only way I might benefit from the federal tax credit is if I have some tax liability in 2019 up to $7500. However, in my specific circumstance, I expect to be able to get a tax refund without even taking the plug-in federal tax credit which makes it useless to me. Thus, I've lost out on being able to capitalize on maximal savings.

    If I lease the vehicle I get some of the benefit from the federal tax credit via the lease cash AND can put $9500 down (through RYR) and really close the gap between cap-cost and RV. I can then buy it outright in a few months after saving some cash and sure, I might be paying a little extra in terms of termination fees, but I don't think it would be anything near the $6000 lease credit passed on to me to begin with.

    Does that make a little more sense?

    I just looked - there is also $6000 dealer cash on a purchase, too.

    That might change the calculus on your buy vs. lease decision.

    The March programs end, today, and new incentives start tomorrow.

    We don't know the programs, yet, but I would be shocked if the incentives ended or were reduced.
