Frequently Asked Questions


Is it better to lease or buy a car?

It depends. Leases and loans are simply two different methods of automotive financing. One finances the use of a vehicle; the other finances the total cost of a vehicle. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks. It's not possible to simply say that one is always better than the other because it depends on your own particular situation and preferences. You must not only look at the financial comparisons but also at your own personal priorities and what's important to you.

Do you like driving a new car every two or three years, prefer lower monthly payments, or drive under 10,000 miles per year? Leasing might be the best option.

Do you like to keep your car for longer than three years, drive more than 10,000 miles per year, or enjoy modifying or customizing your car? You should probably consider purchasing your next vehicle.

Lease vs. Buy

Can I trade in my car that's not paid off?

In a word: yes. Trading in a financed vehicle is very common. There are a few things to still be aware of though.

If you are underwater with your current loan (you owe more than your car is worth), the negative equity will be added to the new loan.

If you are not underwater, the remaining loan balance will simply be deducted from the value of your trade-in.

In both cases, we will take care of paying off the lien holder and getting the title for your vehicle. This is one less thing you have to worry about when you trade in your car with us, versus selling it privately. In fact, we will even buy your car from you regardless if you buy a vehicle from us!

How much should a car down payment be?

It is recommended to put at least 10% down on the purchase of a new or pre-owned vehicle, but as little as $500 can be sufficient in many cases. There is no harm in putting down as much as possible though, and we would suggest aiming for putting down around 20% to help lower your monthly payments.

You don't necessarily need to have this cash on hand though. If you are trading in a vehicle, the value of your trade-in will help cover most of, if not all, of your down payment.

If you are interested in having the lowest possible down payment, taking advantage of our low or no money down lease specials may be your best option. Check out our current lease offers today or contact us for more information.

Honda Specials and Lease Deals

Is it better to buy or lease new Honda vehicles? Every situation is different, and there are pros and cons to each. 

Leasing a new car can often get you a lower monthly payment without the long-term financial commitments-just turn in the keys at the end of your lease. In many cases, used cars are also available for lease. However, lease agreements are usually only beneficial if you plan to drive less than 12,000 miles per year. So if you love to drive a lot, you might be better off with a standard car loan.

Your Honda dealership will often have special lease deals or financing deals available that may affect your payments and your decision whether to buy or lease a Honda. Be sure to ask our team about any offers and specials that might be available.
