Leasing Frequently Asked Questions near Gaithersburg, MD

Leasing Frequently Asked Questions near Gaithersburg, MD

Honda Leasing FAQs:

Are you thinking about leasing, but aren’t sure what it entails? There are plenty of questions people ask when talking about this method of automotive acquisition, so we’re here to clear up any confusion. Read on for more information, and contact us at Shockley Honda with any additional inquiries!

Mileage and Taxes

One common concern is that if you drive many miles a year, that you should not lease. This isn’t true, since Honda Leadership Leasing offers up-front mileage purchasing, which you can choose to buy at the front end of your contract. This is less expensive than going over your designated mileage limit and having to pay out at the end, so we highly recommend this route! Another question asked often revolves around taxes. In short, the sales tax or property tax you have to contribute is based on the state you live in, so make sure to consult with us about Maryland’s specific regulations.

In Case Of Damages

When drivers lease, they often wonder what insurance is needed. Honda specifically requires coverage of physical damage, comprehensive insurance, and collision insurance during your contract. Again, the exact details might vary based on your state, so please reach out to us if you’re in need of more information. Another big concern is what to do when your leased car is stolen or totaled. If this happens, reach out to Honda Financial Services Customer Service to find out the steps to take. Honda leases include GAP coverage, so you won’t have to shell out in case an emergency like this occurs, but make sure to contact HFS since there are several other protocols to follow.

End of Lease Protocol

At the end of a lease, there are several other inquiries that may come up. Every wrapped-up contract requires you to have an inspection conducted by an authorized Honda agent. This will take about an hour, assuming your vehicle is in great shape. It’s best to get any necessary repairs done before you come in to avoid extra wear and tear fees, but it is not required. After the inspection, there is the matter of final paperwork and the end-of-term bill. This may have extra charges on it if your vehicle is damaged, has excess mileage, there are any payments yet to be made, or there is a required turn-in fee. Once this is wrapped up, you will receive your security deposit back if you submitted one! On the other hand, if you decide to purchase your model and keep it for good, it must be bought for the amount pre-determined on your contract, which is non-negotiable. You will receive the title for your Honda in the mail shortly!

We hope these leasing frequently asked questions near Gaithersburg, MD, helped bring you some clarity. If you find a Honda that you love and want to start up a lease, contact our Finance Department at Shockley Honda right away.

Recently bought a used toyota rav 4 the truck is amazing. The best part was the sales people I dealt with Paula over the phone she worked so hard to get me into the truck I wanted. Charles is the salesman I dealt with at the dealership and he was so down to earth. Go talk to them they are great.

The sales people that I worked with were very helpful in explaining everything in layman's terms. They listened to what I was looking for in a car, and did not pressure me into buying or financing against my interests. Darren was able to find a car with the make, model, and color I was looking for, and Mark was very helpful in helping me deal with the paperwork and delivered the vehicle on time!

I was honestly not sure what to expect looking for a car during Covid but I was very pleased with the cleanliness, the social distancing and I was very comfortable with my whole experience. Mark Lawson was very polite, genuine, patient, and answered all of my questions. I was not expecting to actually come home with a new SUV yesterday but everything just seemed right. Not only did I pay less than what I expected to pay but I also got more for my trade-in than I expected to get. There was no need to haggle and no high pressure upselling. I highly recommend Shockley Honda.

Big shout out to Shockley Honda, and specifically Nathaniel Janes for their thoroughness and honesty! My daughter's car was intentionally mis-diagnosed for an AC issue by Auto Nation Honda in Dulles which they said would cost her $2,400. We decided to take her car to Shockley for a second option. Nathaniel Janes found the real issue/repair she needed was under extended warranty for FREE repair. We are SO VERY GLAD we went to Shockley for that 2nd opinion! Thanks again to Shockley Honda and Nathaniel Janes for your excellent service....you will get ALL my family's business from this day forward!!!

We knew exactly that we wanted a 2019 Ridgeline Sport AWD and the dealership had what we were looking for. The salesman Mike Morales let us take the truck for an extended drive and was knowledgeable about the Ridgeline and able to answer all questions. We got a great deal on the truck and are very satisfied with its comfort and utility. Already used it to transport two dual sport motorcycles to a riding area. I would highly recommend visiting Shockley if you are in the market for a new Honda.

I had a great experience buying a 2016 CRV here. We worked with Christian who was knowledgeable, helpful, and hooked us up with everything we needed, including test drives and details on the purchase. The price was very fair, and the finance team beat the already great financing deal my credit union had offered. We'll definitely come back!
