Foreign Automaker Incentives For September

Honda – Honda’s September incentives haven’t changed much from last month. The popular Accord sedan still has a lease special of $199 a month for 36 months with $2,199 due at signing. The lease special is for well-qualified buyers (meaning 720 FICO and above). The Civic and CR-V also have a lease special right now. You can lease a Civic for $179 or $199 a month for 36 months and a CR-V for $239 a month for 36 months. You’ll need anywhere from $1,400 to $2,500 at signing.

For those who prefer an auto loan, Honda is offering 2.9% for 36 months or 3.9% for 60 months.

Toyota – Toyota wants to clear out its 2009 and 2008 inventory, and has some good deals to entice buyers. The 2009 Tacoma has 0% auto loan financing for 36 months right now.
