Frequently Asked Questions


Is it better to lease or finance a car?

Leases and loans are simply two different methods of automotive financing. One finances the use of a vehicle; the other finances the purchase of a vehicle. Depending on your situation, one may be better than the other for you.

If you like driving a new car every two or three years, prefer lower monthly payments, or drive under 10,000 miles per year then leasing might be the best option.

Do you want to keep your car for longer than three years? You should probably consider purchasing your next vehicle.

Lease vs. Buy

Can I trade in my car that's not paid off?

Yes. Trading in a financed vehicle is very common. There are a few things to still be aware of though.

If your car is worth less than what you owe, the remaining loan balance will simply be deducted from the value of your trade-in.

In both cases, we will take care of paying off the lien holder and getting the title for your vehicle. This is one less thing you have to worry about when you trade in your car with us, versus selling it privately. In fact, we will even buy your car from you regardless if you buy a vehicle from us!

We'll Buy Your Car

How much should a car down payment be?

It is recommended to put at least 10% down on the purchase of a new or pre-owned vehicle, but as little as $500 can be sufficient in many cases. There is no harm in putting down as much as possible though, and we would suggest aiming for putting down around 20% to help lower your monthly payments.

You don't necessarily need to have this cash on hand though. If you are trading in a vehicle, the value of your trade-in will help cover most of, if not all, of your down payment.

If you are interested in having the lowest possible down payment, taking advantage of our low or no money down lease specials may be your best option. Check out our current lease offers today or contact us for more information.

Can I finance a used car?

Absolutely! We offer financing on all of our vehicles, both new and pre-owned. In fact, banks typically see lending through a dealership like us as less risky compared to lending to a private party. So when you finance a pre-owned vehicle through us, not only are you are more likely to get approved, you will probably get better loan terms too.

Finance a Honda Near Me in Des Plaines, IL

When you've finally decided between that new Honda CR-V SUV or used Honda Civic Coupe, you'll be happy to know you have flexible financing options.

Choosing whether to buy or lease your new or used car depends on your personal preference. If you buy, you're taking out an auto loan to finance the total cost of the vehicle. With a Honda lease, you're financing only the use of the vehicle, generally resulting in lower payments. 

Whichever way you decide to go, the experts at AutoNation Honda O'Hare's finance department are here for drivers of Des Plaines, Mt. Prospect, and Park Ridge. Our Honda dealership will help you find the car loan terms and monthly payments ideal for you. They'll even walk you through the most competitive rates on your new car purchase, like those found on our Honda Current Offers page

How to choose between buying or leasing a new Honda vehicle? 

A lease may be a good idea if:

  • You like flexibility
  • You regularly upgrade cars 
  • You drive under 10,000 miles per year
  • You don't modify your car
  • You prefer lower monthly payments

    Leases can last for 24 to 60 months. That means you get to experience the newest Honda models like the 2022 Honda Pilot SUV, Honda Accord Sedan, or Honda Ridgeline Truck every two to five years. 

    You also have options when your lease ends: You can choose to return your car for a new lease, extend your current lease, or even buy the car. 

    Buying may be a better choice for drivers who:

    • Keep their vehicles long term
    • Want to completely customize their cars
    • Like to modify their car
    • Drive over 10,000 miles per year 

          You can lease used Honda vehicles. Contact our Finance Center for more details.
