Buying and Leasing: What's the Difference?

You'll find a variety of great new Subaru models for sale or lease at Subaru Pacific, but which setup is right for you? The buying process and the leasing process have a lot of similarities. With both, you'll usually be making monthly payments, and after a few years, you'll want to upgrade. At the end of the lease, all you have to do is return the vehicle to us. With buying, you can keep the vehicle for as long as you want, or trade it in or resell it for a lesser value than what you spent on it. If your lifestyle requires more than about 10,000 miles per year, you might be better off with a purchase, because car leases come with driving limits. Here, you'll find a convenient comparison on the costs and benefits of each choice, along with preferences. Read through the details here, then come to Subaru Pacific for a test drive!

Make an Inquiry

When you buy a new vehicle, its value will depreciate over time. That's why you'll want to make the most cost-effective and satisfying choice between buying and leasing a Subaru. For some people, the feeling of owning their own vehicle is worth the cost. Leasing a vehicle will help you save, and you don't have to deal with owning something that's worth less than what you paid for it. With a lease, you also owe less up front (if there is an amount due at the beginning, it's almost always much less than a down payment). The monthly payments are also lower when you lease than when you're making monthly payments on a purchase. As vehicles get older, they require more costly maintenance more often. That means that when you lease a vehicle, you'll spend less on service, because you won't have the vehicle long enough for it to get old. People who regularly lease their vehicles will get to drive the latest models more often, and they don't have to deal with the hassle of trading or reselling the vehicle they bought.
