Honda Offering Zero Down Lease Deals
Hidden dealer incentives are the key!
Note that dealer incentives are for dealers only, but often you can squeeze the manufacture subsidy out of your dealer.
Most of the deals are lease deals. For December's campaign, Honda offers "$0 down payment, $0 security deposit, $0 first month's payment, $0 due at lease signing" on some models.
For instance, you can lease a higher-end 2010 Accord Crosstour for $320 a month with no down payment.
For those who want to finance, Honda is offering 0.9%-2.9 % interest-rate deals for 60 months on most of its lineup. Most of these deals end Jan. 4.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
