Lease or finance?
When participating in the Military Appreciation Program, one of the first questions you should ask yourself is whether you'd like to buy or lease your new Honda.
Buying is probably the way to go if you think you'll be keeping the car for more than five years. If this is the case, and buying seems the best solution, you should consider traditional financing. Traditional financing is considered a more fiscally conservative approach, and often makes sense to a buyer that is interested in keeping the financed car long-term.
The flexibility of a lease, however, has its advantages. Leasing gets you into a new or Certified Used Honda with as little initial cash spent as possible. At the end of the lease term, you'll have the option of turning it in for a new car or purchasing it outright. At lease end, you don't have to worry about selling the car back - you just return it. You don't have to worry what the car will be worth, and you won't have to go through the process of finding a buyer and securing a fair price. Obviously, a lease works well if you are expecting to upgrade yourself to a new Honda in 3 years or less.
This is a very simplified, condensed explanation of the lease vs. buying decision, of course. What will work well for you is best researched and reviewed a little more thoroughly.
