My lease ran out on my 2012 Si Coupe so yesterday I found out I could trade in a lease anytime I wanted!

So until the R-Type comes out I'll settle for the 1.5T 4D EX-L. Didn't see worth of 2K more for the Touring (tech to keep you in your lane, brake for you, and oh year, Honda's crappy GPS).

Love it so far but miss my manual 6. Amazed at the tech, connects to the Wi-Fi in my house or use phone hot-spot. Android Auto linked with my Samsung Galaxy Note5 (see if I can use Wayz).

I looks black-but it's really Burgundy Night Pearl...

Of course you can trade the lease when ever you want, however if you owe more on the lease than the car is worth, you will need to put money out of pocket. They aren't going to just eat your lease to get you into a new car.

Congrats for the new ride.

How do you intend to try waze? We use it in our Gen 9 Si, have it on the screen but still have to control it on the phone's screen.

The touring also gets 450 watt stereo that blows the door off the 100 something watt that comes on lower trims.>:)

So you bought a new lease and can switch it whenever? Or you bought a car but will do the lease trade in a few years when the Si comes out?

To switch when ever, is going to require putting some money in.
You have to carefully pay attention to your lease documents.
Example say I'm paying 100 a month for 36 months thats 3600.00 PLUS the buy out amount of say 20 thousand. Which means I have to get 23,600.00 to break even to get out of my lease. If I owe more than that, I'm going to have to put in money.

Just seems like waiting for the actual model that you want to come out would be an easier way to go about things. But to each their own.

Well if his dealership is going to swap the lease at no cost, don't see why he shouldn't. Pretty good deal actually and he gets a new car in a few years.

That's tough to do when your lease runs out and you have to look for something immediately, much unlike having a car you actually own and can hold onto.

Not everyone can wait.

Lots of dealers will roll you into a new car at the same price and not charge you. Toyota does it and will even pay for a few months of what you may have left.

Android Auto app requires you to connect phone via USB cable to Civic Smart Phone USB port-wish it was Bluetooth connected-I've not had time to play with this feature yet...I hate messing with cables (charge phones wirelessly with Tilt charger)...will probably just use Wayz straight off my phone using an iOttie OneTouch 3 car mount...
