Yes, please give us details. You are in the same area as me and no one has come close to that. How did you get the deal?

Are Weymoth Honda Lease calculator numbers reasonably applicable in other states?
They state that the residual numbers are supplied by Honda varying from model to model, but the money factor can vary right?
Going tonight to my dealer and want to be prepared!

Some of the best lease rates I've seen have been with third party lessors with higher bank fees and disposition fees than Honda Finance, plus they get you with the excess wear and tear. Even if this lease is with Honda, I'm sure they would get you with the dealer prep fees and probably every car available under this lease has some ridiculously priced dealer installed accessories.
#5015 of 5233 Lease Return Question
Feb 23, 2013 (8:35 pm)
I have a 2010 Accord and had my inspection today. I have some whopper of dents, and the inspector told me that I will be charged $600, twice (one on rear bumper, one on front bumper) and $200 for some scratches around the car. He claims not to have ink in his printer so he couldn't give me an inspection report but did say he would email me it (but he hasn't yet).
I am looking to return my Accord Lease and finance a CRV EX-L, through AHFC (AHFC also holds my lease). So, my questions are as follows:
1. What should I do with respect to the damage I have now? Repair it? Try to Negotiate with Honda? Assuming I go through with my CRV purchase and finance it through AHFC, will AHFC forgive my damage?
2. If AHFC refuses to waive my damage, what should I do? Get another inspection and fight the claims (it seems that if the inspector says $600 damages twice, and my own independent inspector says $500, then I could get it waived under the AHFC damage waiver policy).
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

My 2010 lease is up as well and I have damage that I need to repair, however, some dealerships will and can take of these repairs and inspection...work it out in your negotiations. I had previous dealerships do this for me and was offered it again today in addition to them covering my remaining lease payments.
However, I have to say I test drove both the CRV and Accord today and I am not sure I am sold on either of them. Thinking of Ford Fusion or Escape but have yet to test drive those.
Can I ask why you decided to go from an Accord to a CRV? The CRV didn't seem to have as tight of steering as the Accord does, but personally I don't like all the technology in the new Accord and really do not care for the keyless ignition. I am going to test drive them again and see what I think because I have had Hondas for the past 15 years and it's hard to think of switching.

Thanks. I just need a larger car, and with the damage and all to the accord I figure I can get it forgiven if I take out another honda (this will be my third honda purchase or finance and I actually want to do a fourth one trading in my fit for a civic). I an weary about buying American and don't want to lease.
I tried to talk with the dealerships about just accepting my car but since my lease is up in 4 days they aren't willing to do anything concerning my damage. Also I think my residual is too high on my accord and i have no equity in terms of miles (right on pace)
