Hey all. SHOP AROUND PEOPLE! I think there are still great deals out there. And MAJOR kudos again to @4sallypat for the help.
Here’s my results:
2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Base in Gray.
@ 0.00047 MF (tier 1)
Gross Cap Cost: $24,912
Cap Cost reduction -$1,245
Adjusted Cap Cost = $23,666
Monthly Payment: $300 including 9.5% monthly tax in LA.
Includes Honda Care for 3 years. (Retail $540 but I think I got it for around $360 after they worked-in the numbers)
$7600 incentive is still going as of Jan 25th 2019.
$480 SOCAL Costco (Print it anyway and see if it helps! Non participating dealers can honor, or leverage it)
$100 employee eligible discount (I had a company that used TrueCar and printout out the examples showing this extra reduction. Non participating dealers may match)
Less 2.5 hrs out the door.
Finance up-selling: I hesitated but didn’t go for any extras but I was tempted (for 2 seconds) on the “Finish Touch Protection”(?) Wish, I researched more on the benefits/cons? For 3 years they wanted an extra $648 (+18p/m). I’m sure they could have come down. I’ll let ya’ll decide if its worth it.
Hopefully this helps.
