Honda Announces Year End Incentives
Honda has had a rough few months. While most other manufacturers managed to increase sales this year, Honda has lost a ton of market share and they need to make up for it quick!
The car maker announced new incentives this week that are good through the end of the year.
While their offerings are attractive, it's not exactly the incentives war that many analysts have been expecting.
Honda is mainly offering $0 down lease deals on most of their models - not much different than what they've been offering for the past couple of months.
It's possible they may provide bigger discounts next month, but it would be unusual since they already have expiration dates set that are good through the end of December.
Honda suffered a big setback in production due to the recent flooding in Thailand, where they have factories. This may explain why the incentives were not as large as expected.
Here are the current Honda lease deals. They are all 36 months, with $0 down, $0 security deposit, and $0 first month's payment. Good thru January 3, 2012.
- 2011 Honda Accord Coupe EX - Lease for $310/month with $0 down
- 2011 Honda Accord Sedan LX - Lease for $260/month with $0 down
- 2012 Honda Civic Sedan LX - Lease for $230/month with $0 down
- 2012 Honda Crosstour EX - Lease for $340/month with $0 down
- 2011 Honda CR-V LX - Lease for $270/month with $0 down
- 2012 Honda Odyssey LX - Lease for $350/month with $0 down
- 2012 Honda Pilot LX - Lease for $340/month with $0 down
