Put simply, a lease buyout is when a dealership lets you buy out of a lease before it ends. Traditionally, there are two distinct types of a lease buyout, so be sure to read up on your options! Take a look at the different types to see which works best for you, then make your way to Honda North near Lynn to check out our Honda lease deals in person!

Early Lease Buyout

An early lease buyout allows Burlington drivers to purchase their Honda model before the lease contract actually ends. However, be aware that this option is not always available. Before committing to an early lease buyout, make sure that you are willing to actually buy the vehicle. You will want to weigh your options between buying and leasing beforehand. The price of an early lease buyout is determined by:

  • The lease-end residual value on your original contract
  • The amount you still owe on the lease
  • If the vehicle has depreciated quicker and is below market value, you might have to pay the difference

Most times, buyers consider this buyout when concerned about lease penalties like going over mileage, not maintaining scheduled services, or damages to the interior or exterior of the vehicle.

Lease-End Buyout

While an early lease buyout is practical and a great option for Lawrence drivers in many situations, the more common path to take is a lease-end buyout. Rather than terminate the lease early by purchasing the Honda SUV, sedan, or other model, a lease-end buyout is when you purchase the vehicle at the end of the lease. It is a good option for Lynn drivers if:

  • You enjoy your Honda Civic or other Honda model and want to keep driving it
  • You have made very few repairs
  • You get a great financing interest rate
