Here's the information that you're looking for, sportsmomtotwo. Honda Finance's August buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Pilot EX-L 4WD with 15,000 miles per year are .00039 and 51%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.
This program is scheduled to run through September 4th. It's difficult to say what the September program will look like at this point.

Hi rocklease. Do you know what this truck's selling price is? That number would make it much easier for me to evaluate this deal.

My friend was the UCGM at a local Honda dealership and has worked out a deal for me on a new HOnda. I wanted to see if this a decent deal or not.
2012 Honda Pilot AWD EX-L (no res or navi).
Lease payment included all taxes/fees/etc. is $445/month for 12k miles a year (36 month lease).
This sound reasonable?

Terrible. Check out http://www.weymouthhonda.com/lease and use their calculator to get a feel for what you should be able to get without even negotiating. Good luck

2 years ago, I leased a 2010 Pilot touring for 2k down 450/month including taxes and all my services for the vehicle. I recently brought in the Pilot early to see if I could get into a new one. I was able to turn in my leased pilot and civic,both which had 8 months left on the lease for a 2012 pilot touring ,12k / yr no money out of pocket 405/month no services.

Looking to lease either a 2012 or 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L. This San Diegan dealer was the cheapest I could find in Southern California:
2012 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD lease for 36 months and 12K miles a year:
Sale price: $33,495
First payment: $451.64
Acquisition fee: $595.00
Doc fee: $80.00
Monthly payment: $451.64
Is this a good deal? Any one know if the lease rates will be much higher for the 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L?

Just found out that it was NOT a true 0 down. There is a $1487 drive off. The monthly payment of $451 includes all taxes/fees.
Carman- does this sound good to you? I have used tactics learned on this website and have quotes from all over So Cal (Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, and San Diego) and this was the lowest I could get it.
We are ready to sign the lease (there is only 1 4WD left at this dealership) but I am trying to wait to hear from you or any other expert here! Thanks so much!!
#3373 of 3566 Identical money factor/residual/sale price- why big difference in quotes?
Sep 10, 2012 (3:49 pm)
I have the following quote from a Bay Area dealer. The monthly payment is quite a bit lower than the San Diego dealer (see last post); however, when I compare the money factor, residual, and sale price- they are nearly identical! What accounts for the signficantly lower monthly payment between the two dealers?
Also, I read a former post from Carman that said August numbers for money factor/residual was .00038 and .54. Is the following quote a good enough deal considering his numbers?
2012 Honda Pilot 4WD EXL
36 month lease with 12k miles per year allowance.
$0 down payment, $0 first payment, $0 dmv for first year and $0 security deposit ($0 due when you take the vehicle)
$467.40 per month (payment dropped when I put in the actual county. You must have slightly lower dmv fees)
Money factor: $.00048
Residual: 52% ($19318)
#3374 of 3566 Completed lease deal in Southern California for EX-L 4WD 2012
Sep 16, 2012 (11:03 pm)
Just drove home my cool new 2012 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD. Silver exterior on grey interior.
Read all the great leasing info on Edmunds, and used their website to send inquiries to nearly 30 dealerships in the San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco areas. Presented the lowest offer I got to other dealers and kept repeating that process until no one was willing to match the lowest offer (not necessarily the lowest sale price- but the lowest money paid by end of lease).
Ended up with a deal from a dealership in Los Angeles:
Sale price: $33,979.31
0 down, 0 money out the door
36 mos, 12,000 miles/yr
Money factor: .00038
Base monthly payment: $444.27
Monthly payment with 7.75 tax: $478.70
I did have a lower negotiated sale price and monthly payment deal with a dealership in San Francisco, but they claimed that AHFS wouldn't give me the money factor of .00038 and instead offered .00102 (with income verification required even). So they upped my monthly payment by $33! Not cool especially since I'd already booked a nonrefundable air ticket for $350 to go get the car!
That particular San Francisco dealership claimed that they had absolutely no choice on the money factor because it was stipulated by AHFS and that it would be the exact same money factor regardless of which dealership I went to. Obviously not entirely accurate since the Los Angeles dealership was able to give me the .00038 money factor from AHFS! And both dealerships had used the same credit score (Experian Auto 689).
Anyways, Carman, what do you think of the deal? So Cal is definitely more expensive than Northeast, but was this a decent deal?
