Leasing a New Subaru in Boone

  • Monthly payments on a lease are typically lower than if you were to finance your new Subaru, which means if you have a set budget you're comfortable with, you'll be able to afford a higher trim level with more features thanks to your leasing agreement.
  • When leasing, you'll pay taxes on each monthly payment instead of a lump sum right away.
  • Lease agreements typically run for three years, which means you're avoiding a long-term commitment.
  • Manufacturer warranties mean lower service costs on a leased Subaru.
  • You'll have several options at the end of the lease, including the ability to purchase it if you like your Subaru, or you can go for another lease on an all-new Subaru.

Bottom line: If you want lower monthly payments, plenty of options moving forward in three years and if you keep your annual mileage limited, leasing is probably the way to go.

Buying a New Subaru in Boone

  • Since Subaru models are built to last, outright owning one after paying off your loan is a worthy investment.
  • You can make alterations and add parts and accessories as you please with a Subaru you're financing, whereas a lease has some limitations to what you can add to the mix.
  • You can sell your Subaru at any point, compared to a leased Subaru in which you'll have to wait until the end of the lease agreement.
  • If you're willing to wait, a purchased Subaru can end up being a cheaper option in the long run than continually choosing new lease agreements every three years or so.
  • If you're on the road a lot on an annual basis, buying might be the way to go, as leasing a Subaru will put a limit on your mileage and you'll incur costly fees if you exceed that limit.

Bottom line: If you're able to spend more up front and for your monthly loan payments, buying and eventually completely owning a new Subaru will prove to be a better value and a better investment than leasing.
