Is Buying or Leasing a New Subaru the Best Option For You?

Are you in the market for a new Subaru vehicle but aren't sure whether buying or leasing it is going to be the best option for you. This is usually one of the most important decisions you need to ask yourself before even committing to a specific model because it allows you to enter the car shopping process with a clear cut agenda and allows you to truly make the best decision on which vehicle is going to be right for you. Here at Somerset Subaru, we offer great loan and lease options on all of our new Subaru models, and while each option offers tremendous benefits, whether they'll work best for you is dependent upon what you're looking to get out of your next vehicle. In order to provide you with a quick and easy reference of the advantages of both buying and leasing, we're going to highlight a few benefits that each option has to offer, so you can get to deciding on which Subaru model is right for you, not which pricing option.

Benefits of Leasing

Leasing a new Subaru model rather than buying it might be a better option for you if you:

  • Want to pay a lower down payment and lower monthly payment because you'll only be paying for the time that you lease the vehicle, rather than purchase it and pay off the full price.
  • Don't tend to rack on more than around 12,000 miles a year.
  • Want the ability to change your Subaru model every few years without the hassle of having to sell your vehicle
  • Want to enjoy lower repair costs because your vehicle will likely be under the factory warranty for the entirety of your lease.
Benefits of Buying

Buying and financing a new Subaru model rather than leasing might be the better option for you if you:

  • Want to modify or customize your vehicle to look and perform exactly how you want it to.
  • Want to build equity in your purchase.
  • Drive longer distances and tend to put more than 12,000 miles a year on the odometer.
  • Know you'll want to continue driving the same vehicle three years from now.
  • Want the ability to sell or transfer the title of your vehicle to whomever you please, whenever you please.
