Dealership Information

Once you set your sights on the perfect set of wheels, you have to decide whether you would like to buy or lease your prospective ride. Both avenues boast their own respective benefits, and neither one is better than the other. It all boils down to what will integrate into your budget and driving needs the best. That is why we at McGrath Honda of St. Charles are here to fill you in with all of the details!

Financing

Let’s start things off by taking a peek at the most common path taken by potential buyers. Otherwise known as financing, this route allows you to split up the full sticker price of the driving option that you are keen on into manageable monthly payments over an extended period of time. Then, when your term is finished, you will have full ownership of your vehicle to use as a trade-in or hand down to your teen that just started driving. If this sounds like the perfect plan for you, you can use our Get Pre-Approved form to receive your green light in three easy steps. Then, you can fill out our online Finance Application to help get some paperwork out of the way ahead of time. Once we receive your submission, we will get in touch with our trusted lenders to help secure a loan that fits your new or pre-owned model.

Leasing

Next on the list of options for automotive acquisition is a path that is growing in popularity more and more as time passes. People are opting to lease because it allows them to experience the latest and greatest driving options more often. The reason this is possible is that your term lasts an average of two to four years and you will only be borrowing the model from us during that period of time. One of the major benefits of doing so is that you will only have to pay for the vehicle’s depreciated value while it is in your care. So, all that you need to do is let us know the mileage that you drive annually along with the amount of time you want to keep the Honda in your possession! Then, when your contract is coming to a close, you will be able to hand in the keys and walk away, continue leasing, or pay for the vehicle’s remaining value.

Inventory

One thing that both of these avenues share in common is the ability to dive straight into the latest and greatest Honda vehicles to hit the market! You can start researching which one will fit your needs the best when you head to the top of your screen and double-click the New Vehicles dropdown. After that is taken care of, you will be redirected to a page filled with all of the models that we currently have in stock. If you are interested in securing premier fuel efficiency ratings and superior force, consider taking the helm of the Honda Civic or Accord. On the other hand, if you need a ride that is perfect for the entire family, consider the Honda Pilot or Odyssey!

Have you decided whether you would like to buy vs lease near Chicago, IL? If so, you can make your way down to our Finance Department today at McGrath Honda of St. Charles!

After a traumatic car accident, leaving my 2012 Honda Civc totaled, purchasing a new car from McGrath Honda of St. Charles was a breath of fresh air. Darek was extremely knowledgeable, answered any/all questions, and showed me all of features of the new 2020 Honda Civic. I was so relieved to be working with people who cared about getting me a new, safe and reliable new car. This is our family's 4th Honda from McGrath Honda of St. Charles. As you can see, we trust them through and through!

Needed to get the oil changes. Got a coupon from McGrath. Great price, couldn't refuse to get legit Honda service from McGrath for such a deal. Staff got me in and out in less than a half hour. They took great care to ensure car was germ free. Jose Espinoza came over and from a safe distance asked if i wanted to trade in. Told him we were not ready just yet. THANKS MCGRATH!

My lease was ending so it was time to get rid of the car. I was over on miles for the lease too, so I was worried about how things would turn out. Darek was wonderful to work with and made sure I ended up in the best situation possible. My lease was returned hassle free and I ended up with a great deal on a CRV. This is my third car (two leases and one bought) I have gotten through Darek, and he was well worth the trip!

I live in Sycamore and work in Rockford so there are local dealerships available to me in both towns, but I prefer the sales and service at McGrath. I bought my first CR-V over ten years ago and just replaced it yesterday. We also bought an Odyssey Touring last year from McGrath. Their staff and service can't be beat. Darek, Tom, and Jason are all great to work with. Thank you for great service and friendly staff. We will be back!

From the moment I walked in the door, I was treated over-the-top respect from every employee I encountered. Everyone said "hello", "good morning", or nodded if they were already in a conversation. Max came right up and asked how he could help me. When I told him I had an appointment with Tom, he went straight to get him. Max and Tom returned quickly, and Tom assured me that Max would do all he could to help me decide on a car, while he would help make the numbers fit my budget. I'll spare you the details of the next several hours, but Max's customer service was outstanding! He listened to what I had to say, and showed me several vehicles until we found the perfect fit! All the while, Tom would check in to be sure things were going smoothly. Once I decided on a vehicle, Tom did his very best to fit it into my budget. He was always kind, considerate, and understanding. When it came time to sign the papers, Jason was yet another remarkable McGrath employee! He thoroughly discussed the paperwork with me, and even ended up saving me a few dollars on my monthly payment! At the end of the day, I had a beautiful new car and I felt confident that my McGrath family did the best they could to provide me with a great deal! I look forward to working with them all in the future, when I go in for service and when I send family and friends in for their new cars! Thank you for an outstanding experience, gentleman! You are appreciated!
