#4764 of 5554 Just Starting 2012 Accord EX-L
Jul 17, 2012 (4:35 pm)
Just starting out. Sending emails to dealerships all over NJ. This is the first bite I got. Need at least 15k miles, also thinking about buying.
2012 Honda Accord EXL Automatic Sedan for 36 months with 15,000 miles per year:
With $1000 out of pocket, your monthly payment would be $290/month including tax.
With $2000 out of pocket, your monthly payment would be $260/month including tax.
With $3000 out of pocket, your monthly payment would be $230/month including tax.

A price comparison for you from Ohio. Scroll down this "specials" page to see your EX-L model. Then add an additional $17 per month for 15k per year vice 12k. Your initial prices are high IMO.

Yes, mikeymikey. The buy rate lease money factor is the lowest possible money factor that is available on a given vehicle. I always say buy rate because dealers are often allowed to mark up banks' published lease money factors to add additional hidden profit to deals. That sort of thing is not really that common on an Accord, but it is very common with luxury makes like BMW and Mercedes-Benz.
Honda Finance's current lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Accord Sedan LX with 15,000 miles per year are .00046 and 54%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its "Super Preferred" credit tier.

#4768 of 5554 2012 Honda Accord LX W/ Auto transmission
Jul 23, 2012 (10:44 am)
I am interested in leasing the Accord LX sedan with auto transmission and wanted to know if $169.00 per month on 36 months and 12k miles per year + $1556.00 out of pocket was a good deal. The out of pocket is the taxes on 36 monthly payments = 539.96 NYC taxes of 8.875 percent. The bank fee of 595 + 52.81 taxes, 1st month payment of 169.00 and 200.00 for plates and registration. Totaling $7471 over the entire lease term including the out of pocket.Thanks all

#4770 of 5554 2012 Honda Accord EX Manual
Jul 25, 2012 (9:36 am)
Hey guys, just looking for some insight on the following deal.
2012 Honda Accord EX Manual Black on Black
Discounted Price- $21,424.00
Absolutely no money down
$240/month, or $255/month with the wing spoiler I wanted
Wheel lock and mud guards both included (installed)
My question is if this is a good deal, how can I convert the same to a Purchase deal (as in no lease). I have great credit, so what can I expect my monthly payments to be if I purchased it? This is my first new car im leasing/purchasing, so I'm a little scared to go to the dealer and work out the contract (not confident I will get a good deal) . Any insight is greatly appreciated.

240 is a bit high for an EX manual. try using this:
you will need the money factor and residual % but you should know them anyway if you are leasing (first timers especially). I doubt the spoiler is being residualized so you are paying for it entirely in the extra 15/month. Makes no financial sense unless you are a teenager and this is your p-mobile. good luck...

Yes I used a 57% residual, .00046 money factor (thanks to carman), and that yields 226/month. The 240 is all inclusive, includes taxes and fees.
I am not a teenager. I just graduated college and have an engineering job, but I'm still debating between leasing and buying. I drive close to or less than 10k a year, and I dont beat the hell out of my vehicles. I seem to change my mind every day. I know about their graduate program they have going on with the 0.9% APR for 36 month purchase, and the 1.9% for 37-60 month purchase, which seems to be quite a good deal. I can still keep relatively low monthly payments, with little to no money down.
Thanks for the response, and let me know if that 240 (being all inclusive) is good. Would the dealer keep that sell price if I decided to finance a purchase? I would think so.

I get a pre-tax monthly of 229.46 using a 595 acq fee and all other numbers from your post. Did you include the acq fee charged by honda Finance?
Re the price: Pricing for a lease vs a buy could be different depending on the current incentives; sometimes there is lease cash vs a lower loan rate for a purchase - it depends. Not knowing your tax rate (state) and the bs fees they MAY be adding on, it is hard to tell. Overall, any time you can lease for less than $10 per $1000 of MSRP on a standard 3/36k lease, that is a very good deal.
