Of course, finding the right vehicle is only half of the process and after you find it, the next step is to decide whether buying or leasing it is going to be the best option for you. Both buying and leasing a new Subaru model offers terrific benefits, but it's important to understand those benefits and consider which option is going to fit your benefits and needs best. We're here to help you drive home your dream vehicle and are happy to work with anyone to figure out the best loan or lease option. To make it all easier on you, we're going to highlight some of the benefits and differences that buying and leasing a new vehicle present to you, allowing you to consider all options and make an educated decision on whether you're going to lease or buy your new Subaru vehicle.

Why Buy a New Subaru?

  • You Own Your Vehicle: If you buy your vehicle outright, you own it and can do with it as you please. If you're financing your vehicle, you'll own the title once your loan is paid off, and once it is, you no longer have to pay for your vehicle. This not only gives you the freedom to do whatever you want with your vehicle, it also allows you to build equity in it, something that you can't do when you lease.
  • Drive as Much as You Want: You don't have to worry about mileage restrictions when you buy your vehicle. This makes buying a much better option for those that tend to drive long distances and put many miles on their vehicle per year.
  • Personalize Your Vehicle: Since you own your vehicle, you can decide to truly make it your own through customizations, enhancements and additions. This also gives you the option to work on your own vehicle without having to worry about a warranty.
  • Sell it When You Want: Once you're ready to buy a new car, you get to decide where and for how much you sell your current vehicle. You may decide to sell it to a third party or shop around options at dealerships to get the most for your vehicle.

Why Lease a New Subaru?

  • Save Money: Because you're only paying for a lease vehicle for the amount of time that you lease it, you'll have lower monthly payments than you would if you were financing. Since it will cost you less per month, leasing also offers you the opportunity to lease a nicer vehicle than you would have if you were buying it.
  • Upgrade Every Few Years: Since your lease is only for a few years, you get to always upgrade to the newest vehicles once your lease is over, allowing you to enjoy the latest technology features and advancements in engineering so you'll never be driving a vehicle that's obsolete.
  • Warranty Coverage on Maintenance: When you lease your vehicle, it will likely be under warranty for the entire lease period, meaning that you don't have to worry about maintenance and repairs because your vehicle will be covered.
  • Lease End Options: Once your lease is up, you can easily return it and change it out for a new lease vehicle. You also can choose to extend your lease, buy your current vehicle or simply return your lease and consider all of your options.
