Why Lease a Subaru

Why Should You Consider Leasing a Subaru?

With Sierra Subaru of Monrovia, you'll find a plethora of new Subaru vehicles for sale or lease. To lease or not to lease? Sierra won't make the decision for you, of course, but we will try to inform the best we can. Below you'll find side-by-side facts on the costs and benefits of buying a Subaru or leasing a Subaru.

The two choices are similar in that you'll be making monthly payments, and most people want to replace their old vehicles after a few years. When a lease ends, you just have to return your vehicle. If you bought a new Subaru, you can keep it as long as you want, or resell it or trade it in. As time passes, a purchased vehicle's value goes down, so you'll always sell it for less than you spent on it. Buying is preferable for people who appreciate ownership, or who drive more than 10,000 miles a year. Car leases come with driving limits, but there's no limit on how much you can drive in your own vehicle.

New vehicles lose their value over time, but some people feel that owning a vehicle is worth the cost. Leasing is a great way to save, and you don't end up with something that's worth less than what you originally paid for it. Lease offers mean you owe less up front (there may not be any amount due at signing, and if there is, it's almost always less than a down payment). Do you like new cars? With a lease plan, you'll get to drive recent models more often than those who regularly buy. Another cost consideration is maintenance, and vehicles need more expensive maintenance more often as they get older. So if you choose to lease, you'll spend less on service because you won't have the vehicle long enough for it to get old.
