Now that you’re interested, you need to know what options are out there. You can choose to purchase or lease your new vehicle: buying new ensures that the vehicle wasn’t abused by the previous driver and results in eventual ownership. However, leasing traditionally has a lower down payment and lower monthly payments. There is a ton of information out there to help you make the best decision.

Lease: $500 is applied towards the cap cost of the vehicle. Monthly payment and total due at lease signing are calculated after $500 deduction. Unfortunately, this great deal cannot be combined with Zero Due at Lease Signing Program.

Purchase: $500 is applied towards your down payment. This offer is not valid on Honda CPO vehicles or used Honda vehicles. When you chose to purchase your new Honda, you have the option to defer the first payment for 90 days (60 days interest-free).

The next step is figuring out what vehicle is best for you. The New York Times compiled a list of the top 11 Cars That Will Get Your Grad Down the Road of Life, and several new Honda models made the list. This isn’t just our biased opinion, this is the New York Times, people!
