2008 Accord Lease Deals??
 
I noticed on the Honda site, lease deals for the Accord EX, LX and LX-P. I
thought this was unusual for a new model. Is the new Accord moving slowly
perhaps?

If you go to the Honda website, and find the company info, you should be
able to find a press release that shows the sales of all the Honda
models (by model). That would answer your question.

I have seen quite a few recently, which is surprising, considering how
ugly it is.

Sales for the Accord in Dec were up around 4%. The Civic was quite a bit
higher -- and, of course, it is an older model. I would say that the 4% and
perhaps lower so far this month may have precipitated the lease deals I
mentioned.

Go to a dealer, negotiate the price of the car, then tell them you want to
lease it at that selling price. Don't mind what they advertise.....

Not really interested in leasing or even a purchase at this point, although
we might think about a Civic or a Fit later this year as an around-town
alternative for my wife to use instead of her 03 Pilot. Generally, when
Honda comes out with a new model, the dealers around here (and I suspect
elsewhere) add ADM $s to the new models or at least you will pay list. This
does not seem to be the case with the new Accord. Of course, the sagging
economy may be starting to be a factor.

Honda leases are normally handled by American Honda Financial, and they set
the rates and special deals.

If a buyer can find his own leasing company, then other arrangements may be
possible.

I've found that there are certain times they are more willing to deal than
others, such as the end of the month, end of a quarter, end of the year etc.

I'm sure you are right, that the state of the economy will pare down their
sales somewhat, and they will be more willing to deal.

The ultimate purchased cost of a leased vehicle can be negotiated. Some
dealers are more willing to do so than others. From their prospective, it
is no different then the sale of a vehicle.
I have leased Jeep Grand Cherokees in the past (3 of them), and that is
handled through Chrysler Financial, and I have always negotiated the price
of the vehicle first.

It's not that it's no different; the fact is, the dealership IS selling
the vehicle. Period.

Dealerships don't lease vehicles. They sell vehicles.

They may sell the vehicle to an individual owner, or they may sell it to
a leasing company.

The dealership may work as an agent for the leasing company it's selling
the car to, or it may not.

Either way, the car has a selling price. Period.
