Lease vs Buy

Leasing a New Subaru

Advantages of Leasing
  • Lower monthly payments and lower down payments.
  • You can more easily drive a new car every two or three years.
  • Lower repair costs.
  • No trade-in hassles at the end of the lease.
  • You only pay sales tax on the portion of the car you finance.

Disadvantages of Leasing a Car
  • Terminating you lease early can be expensive.
  • Leasing could be more expensive in the long run (compared to buying and driving the same car forever)
  • With leases you might have a mileage restriction, if you go over that set amount of miles you will face additional charges and it can increase your monthly payments.

Buying a New Subaru

When you decide to purchase, you can either pay the full price, or put a down payment and finance the vehicle. Financing is the most common way to buy a new vehicle.

Advantages of Buying a New Subaru
  • Increased flexibility, which means you can modify your car how as you please, and you can sell your vehicle whenever you want.
  • You can put as many miles as you want on your Subaru, because you are making payments to own it. This is good for people who go on long trips, or have daily commutes that might add up in miles.
  • When you buy your new Subaru, you monthly payments may be higher, that is because you pay taxes and fees on it. But at the end of your loan, or when the vehicle is paid off, it's yours!

Disadvantages of Buying a New Subaru
  • Once the warranty expires you are responsible for maintenance costs.
  • Generally a higher down payment is required as well as higher monthly payments.
