#2762 of 2949 Anything missing from this lease package?
Oct 08, 2012 (3:44 pm)
I am looking to buy a new 2012 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/Navigation. I live in Northern NJ. I have a 2009 Acura MDX sport/ent + extras - fully paid at end of lease to throw into the mix as "equity" Thinking of cash down in region of $2,000.
I've been emailing internet dealerships and have visited in person various dealers and monthly lease quotes range from $306-$499. The person who seems to be the most upfront with all the details has sent me this quote:
Car sticker price: $37,855
Sale price: $32,315 including destination
12,000 miles per year
$369.42 per month including NJ Tax
$2,500.00 total due at signing (Not a Penny more)
Subject to top tier credit approval with American Honda Finance
Itemization of money due at signing:
1st month payment
Dealer Document Fee $299.00
NJ Tire Tax $7.50
Estimated Motor Vehicle Registration $310.50
Upfront Bank Acquisition fee $595.00
Capitalized Cost Reduction (Money Down) $918.58
This Lease is thru American Honda Finance and here are the key advantages of leasing with American Honda and why Honda lease customers stay loyal to Honda:
• $0.00 Disposition or Lease turn in Fee at the end of this lease
• *$1,500 damage waiver at lease end *(Less than $500 a panel, not superceding $1,500 for entire car)
• GAP Insurance is included in all American Honda leases at no charge to the lessee.
Please note that this quote is not inclusive of your current Acura MDX Sport with the ENT package, but we are interested in taking a look at it.
My questions is - Is there anything missing from this list that I should think about? I imagine when nailing down the deal there could be some discussion about the sale price, the cash down aspect and the appraisal value for my Acura - btu just want to know if there's anything else the dealer has omitted to mention and which I have omitted to ask about!

I am in NJ too and looking for an EX-L with res or not. with Nav or not. What are your best deals? I have gotten $415 plus sales tax for base EX-L no zero out o pocket, sign and drive. This from from DCH in Paramus but they do not have the colors I want.

that's right in line with what I got. Maybe they'll be more motivated in a month or so

I know but then this other poster is stating some really low numbers. I looked at the documents he posted and they do not mention anything about a trade in with negative equity as stated was the case. I am not sure how they will be posted on the documents so I can't tell.
Anyway, I am going on the 31st to dealers nearest my house and offer $380 including tax for a base EX-L (15k miles, 36 months, $0 payment sign and drive), and see if any of them will bite. I'll post the results here.

I bought black EX-L 2012 w/navi on Saturday.
Gross cap $31,341.57 ($29,946.12 + destination 830 + taxes paid upfront 800)
rent charge: 587.71
Traded in 2009 Acura MDX sport/ent immaculate condition for $3000 which covered all fees, tax, docs, title, bank acquisition
I got the best deal in northern Nj this year I should think!
I spent 4 solid days in dealerships working numbers, emails, phones and - withstood some heavy pressure from different guys but talked my way into an amazing deal. You need to buy the 2012 now whilst there's still a dealer incentive out there - and not care about the colour - it's black or white now with a few greys ones still to be had! Be persistent, be knowledgeable and get lucky.
