A car's mileage affects its resale value. If you drive more miles than the average American driver (12,000 per year) a lease may not make sense. Leases most often come with a limit of 10,000-15,000 miles per year and a fee per mile for additional miles driven.

The One-Pay Lease provides the flexibility and protection of the Honda Leadership Lease®, without the monthly payment.

Leasing offers a lower monthly payment when compared to financing with the same loan terms. Instead of putting your cash into a car that depreciates, you can invest your money into something that appreciates. If you need access to more cash every month - leasing is a good choice. Car leases also do not usually require a substantial down payment.

When you lease a car you pay less for sales tax. When you purchase a car you pay sales tax on the total amount upfront or rolled into your loan. When you lease you pay sales tax only on the portion of the car you finance.

With a 3 year lease, your vehicle is under warranty and the factory will cover the cost of most repairs. Not to mention that a brand new car is unlikely to have dead batteries, or need costly repairs.

You will need to pay your state's licensing fees, and you still need to purchase car insurance to cover theft and damage. GAP (Guaranteed Auto Protection) insurance is available with most leases to protect you if the car is totaled.
