My title at the store where I worked was "Fleet and Leasing Manager" so I'm pretty good with the ins and outs of leases at least as they pertain to Hondas.
In this case paying all of the remaining lease payments would get him out of his lease. Yes, a tough thing to do and I used to advise people to make sure they planned to finish up their lease term.
At this point, I have no idea if there is any incentive money on 2012 Civics but I do know there is very low financing through Honda. Of course, none of this would apply to a used car. This could make this car unattractive to a potential buyer or to a store for that matter.
It would be sold as a "used" car and even with those low miles, shoppers expect a massive discount off the price of a brand new car.
Now, if Civics happen to be in short supply (I have no idea) then it could do pretty well at the auction. If the lots are packed with them it won't do well at all for the reasons I mentioned.
#10229 of 10741 Tempe Honda quote for EX-L
May 06, 2012 (6:55 am)
I know there are a lot of Civic deals going on right now. I'm interested in a Blue EX-L. I've been emailing various dealerships and the best out the door price I've gotten so far is $20,983.00 for the car with an out the door price of $23,725.99. This includes the $399 doc fee (does this seem high?), $1951.42 sales tax, and $391.59 license plate.
Does this seem like a good deal or do you think there is still some negotiation to be done here?

399.00 is VERY high for a doc. fee but I know in some areas of the country that is pretty common.
Question...do you have to have leather? Leather Civics aren't big sellers and they can be pretty scarce. The dealers are well aware of that and they know they can get more money on cars in short supply.
The cloth cars are far more common and the best deals are going to be on cars that are in strong supply.
Living in a hot climate as you do, I'm surprised you would even want leather.
Just a thought...

May 07, 2012 (5:30 pm)
I'm in the market for a 2012 Civic LX Sedan w/ AT (no extras) and have been contacting my local dealerships around the Bay Area. So far the lowest quote I've been given is around $18500 OTD (taxed at 8.75%). Good deal? TIA!

I just bought a new 2012 Civic LX Sedan in Alabaster Silver from a dealer south of Atlanta (this past Sat. 5/5/12).
paid $16,505.15 + 7% sales tax
financed through Honda for 1.9%
Total after finance charges, taxes, fees, etc. = $18,500.00
I think I could have even done better by a few hundred more but too late now...

I'm in dire need to purchase a Honda Civic quickly and live in the Cincinnati area. If you could e-mail the dealer I'd be Ecstatic! I assume it's Jeff Wyler of Colerain. Please let me know if you got this.
#10236 of 10741 Just got a Civic LX 4Dr
May 10, 2012 (4:06 am)
Last night I just went to sign a lease for a Civic LX.
Total down with taxes, registration and fees was $4,460. Monthly payments are $75. Total is around $7,100 for the 36 months.
Question on the fees as for some reason I have a sour taste in my mouth on how the dealer was. When I called and asked first, I was told we would just pay $1,500 down, $895 bank fee (which is high I'm assuming...), $770 destination and tax and DMV. Later they add $400 for admin.
After agreeing, they bring us to the lease person which lets us know we aren't with Honda Financial due to our low payments but some obscure bank that isn't all too great, and charges a $500 disposition fee. We switched to Honda Financial, went from 39 months to 36 months but paying the same total. Shouldn't the Bank fee with Honda Financial be $595?
In addition, I just found out now about the $500 Cash back incentive.
In the end, if I take my total divided by 36 months, it's $197 a month but I still have a sour taste in my mouth.
Did I just get had for extra bank fees, admin fees and missing out on the $500 cash back incentive?
