Here is an ad from New Jersey to give you an idea of what is being offered elsewhere. http://www.hamiltonhonda.net/newspaper-ads.htm
I leased an LX for $0 down $149 a month, 36 months, 12,000 miles per year at the end of April. Around $1600 taxes, tags, dealer prep up front, Honda paid first month and free oil changes and car washes. Now they raised it to $179 a month at this dealership. I know you are in Florida but I wanted to let you know what is happening in other parts of the country.

I will let you know that with a Honda paying money up front isn't a big deal as it will be covered, as GAP insurance is part of a Honda lease. Guys stop spreading misinformation.
He's also located in New York where GAP insurance is required by law.
Anyway I found Honda of New Rochelle to be a joke with their "we'll beat any prices, but they never do"
Call Plaza Honda, their leasing department offered me a one pay lease of $5780 all in (transfer of plates, not new plates) (27 months, 15,000 mi/yr, so 33,750 mi total). Don't call their regular sales department, they are garbage and refuse to even give you a quote via email, but the salesman from the leasing department was good. I'm going to pick it up on Thursday, hopefully it goes smoothly.

All I can say - good luck with recovering that $5,780 if your car gets stolen or totaled next day after you take delivery, especially the sales tax and doc fees.

GAP doesn't cover your downpayment...

You leased an 2012 LX automatic for 36 mo. $149 and all you came up with was $1600?

GAP coverage protects you from being "upside down" in the event of a theft or accident if the vehicle is totaled and the value is less than the pay-off.
If you lease a $20,000 car with 0 down, your pay-off is $20,000 when you drive off the lot. If you pre-pay $5,000 (payments upfront or down payment) then your pay-off is $15,000 when driving off the lot.
GAP only covers your obligation to the lender.

Looks like some people just cannot read.
The deal looks very good though.
Anyway, does anyone knows why dealers push this "one up front payment" lease? Why would they care? They get their sale price not your payments, those go to AHFS.
