Should I Lease or Buy My Next Subaru Near Indianapolis?

So, it is that time once again to head to the dealership and trade-in your current set of wheels for something new. You know that you want that new vehicle to be a Subaru, but you still have one question: To Buy or To Lease? Here at Bob Rohrman Subaru, we maintain a well-stocked inventory of new Subaru vehicles available for both Financing and Lease for the drivers of Lafayette, IN, as well as the rest of the greater Indianapolis area, and there are many benefits to choosing to lease rather to buy and finance.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Leasing a New Subaru:

Q: "I've heard leasing a vehicle will save me money. Is this true?"

A: For the most part, yes. When you lease a Subaru you are only paying the agreed upon monthly payment for the agreed upon lease term, not the full value of the vehicle.

Also, because the manufacturers warranty is typically longer than the lease term, you likely won't need to worry about maintenance.

One other money saving benefit of leasing is that you don't need to worry about long-term depreciation, as you are only responsible for the upkeep of the vehicle during your lease term, then you get to return it to the dealership.

Q: "I like to customize my vehicles. Can I customize a leased Subaru?"

A: If you are a car enthusiast that likes to customize your vehicle, than a lease may not be for you. Because leased Subaru cars are typically returned at the end of their lease term, and prepped for sale to another user, customization is prohibited and will result in violation of the lease terms.

If you just have to make your next car your own, we recommend financing it! There are tons of Subaru parts and accessories available to tune and customize your Subaru to your liking.


Q: "How long will I be able to drive a Subaru if I lease?"

A: The answer is both a matter of time and miles. A lease will last a few years - usually no more than three - and come with a mileage restriction, usually around 10,000-12,000 miles per year.

Usually, more miles can be negotiated with the dealership if desired for a higher monthly payment or down payment.

One thing to note about leasing, there are usually penalties for going over the agreed upon mileage limit as well. So, if you have been known to rack up miles fast on your vehicle, financing is likely the better option for you in the long-run.

Q: "If I wanted to, would I be able to buy the Subaru at the end of my lease?"

A: Yes! Once your lease is complete, you will bring it back to the dealership and have the option to buy your Subaru outright.

You will also have the chance to return that Subaru and pick out another Subaru model to lease or purchase.
