Visit Our Finance Department!

Have you found the Honda model of your dreams? If so, then you have to decide whether you would like to buy or lease your potential set of wheels. Neither path is better than the other, and they both boast fantastic benefits. Your choice simply boils down to what will positively impact your individual driving and financial needs. To learn more about what each route has to offer, continue reading, then make your way down to Gerald Jones Honda to finalize your contract!

Financing

Let’s get the ball rolling by diving straight into the most common path taken by prospective drivers. Buying has been the go-to option for commuters around the world for quite some time now because it allows them to see a return on their investment. The way it works is that we split up the full cost of the Honda model over a span of four to seven years. This way, you can pay off the entire price over an extended period of time rather than all at once. Once you have made the final payment on your contract, the model will be yours to keep! Then, you can use it toward a trade-in or hand it down to your kids when they start driver’s ed. To get started, fill out our online Finance Application so we can get to work on your loan options.

How Do I Lease a Vehicle?

Now that we have addressed what buying entails, let’s look toward the leasing process and why it is consistently growing in popularity. More and more drivers are opting for this avenue because it allows them to experience the latest and greatest automotive advancements the moment that they hit the market. The reason is that you will essentially be borrowing the Honda driving option from us for a set mileage and period of time. This window generally ranges from two to four years, which makes it the perfect trial period if you don’t know if you want to keep the vehicle for good. The best part is that your down payment and monthly rate will be far lower than buying since you are only paying for the vehicle’s depreciation, and you will have some fantastic lease end plans to choose from.

Inventory

If you haven’t already, you can start your search for the ride vehicle today by tapping into our online inventory. Keep in mind, that if you decide to buy, you will also have our top-notch pre-owned selection at your disposal! To get started, double-click the Inventory dropdown at the top of your screen to unveil all of the Honda driving options that we have in our showroom. After that is taken care of, you can head over to the Narrow Your Search tool on the left side of your screen to input your must-haves like the year and model. Once that is complete, be sure to read the short blurb underneath each listing along with the photos to get an idea of what features come with each trim level!

Great experience. Was running late so rep worked around and got me in within short period. Diagnosis was found quickly, part was ordered, and I was able to get out in timely fashion. Part was ordered, was available and is on its way from Atlanta. Rich Wallace.

Wonderful service for repairs! Quick, easy to set appointment, fast delivery with appointment, friendly staff right in the door, honest. I like that they only care about safety with the vehicles and not trying to roll anyone over for expensive repairs. They offered a lady in the waiting room next to me a car for the weekend since her vehicle needed extensive work. Great job all that work there.

William Walker did an awesome job showing me different CRV’s and answering all of my questions. He rode with me several times to test drive and to demonstrate features of the car. He was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and patient. Although we didn’t close a deal this time, I will definitely ask for him next time! It was a very good experience.

Thank you Mr. Elam and the Honda service team.

With this being my first time getting an oil change I was met with welcomed and experience knowledge with Mr Elam. He instructed me on what to do this time and also next time about where to park for service. He made my visit there very pleasant and informational. I got out in a timely manner and was not late for work. Thank you Mr. Elam and the Honda service team.

Got a new CR-V with the help of Allen Baer. They didn't have the model we wanted but he got one shipped to their dealership in one of the colors we wanted in 2 days. He was straightforward and helpful with any questions I had.

The staff was wonderful and very understanding of my situation. They asked what I needed or preferred and found the vehicle I desired with the payments under what I thought they would be. They did not push me or try to oversale like other dealerships I have been to. Next time I am in the market for another car, Gerald Jones Honda will be my first stop.

They were not pushy!

We went to the lot at what we thought was " after hours" because we did not want to be "bothered with salespeople" as we looked initially. We still encountered salespeople but to our surprise when we said we would like to just look on our own and later when we got serious at buying, they were not pushy! This was very important to us. They were all very helpful, knowledgeable and when they found that they did not have the exact car I wanted on the lot, they went in search of one for me. The deal was awesome. I highly recommend Gerald Jones Honda.

They helped me with my flat tire after hours!

Bought a Honda Civic Sports Touring from Kendall. Really awesome guy that cut us a great deal and even stayed a bit after closing to show us every feature of our newly bought car. Every staff member there was respectable and personable, unlike another unnamed car dealership a few miles down Washington Rd. Will definitely purchase another car here again.

In and out fast with good service.

My first Honda came from Gerald Jones Honda in 1985. I moved away not long after that, purchased several cars over the last 33 years, returned “home” last year and just bought my 5th Honda at Gerald Jones Honda! I can honestly say this was one of the best car buying experiences I have had over the years. Cam Griffin brought several cars to me at work to allow me to try different trim levels on my own. He made me laugh throughout the process and made it an awesome purchasing experience. I’m glad to have renewed my relationship with the great people at Gerald Jones Honda and look forward to many years of Honda care with them.

Was very apprehensive about buying a car in general due to prior bad experience. What a different experience this time. Will go back to Gerald Jones Honda again. Everyone was very helpful and friendly every step of the way.

Our car buying experience with Gerald Jones Honda and particularly Allen Baer was great today. We’ve purchased many cars with Allen and would strongly recommend him to anyone! He’s very patient and thorough - as an example - he took notice of the temp setting in my old car and made sure to set it to the same temp in the new car before gettin g in it to drive off the lot. Allen took time to connect on a personal level - asking about family members and work, making it feel like we were doing business with a friend. The sales manager Monty was also instrumental in making this experience a good one. We hope to continue to do business with Gerald Jones
