Buying Versus Leasing

What's The Deal? The Real Differences Between Buying Vs. Leasing

When you're in the market for a new Subaru model, there are lots of factors to consider that go far beyond body style and interior amenities. Yet another decision you must make is whether you would like to buy your new car or lease it. While the vast range of available financing opportunities that are offered can seem daunting, Byers Subaru Dublin is here to help you decide by presenting you with all you need to know to make an informed choice that best fits your driving needs and your wallet.


Ownership

Buying

When you buy a new vehicle, you purchase it directly from the dealership, so you own it!


 
 
 Leasing

When you lease, the vehicle remains the property of the automakers financial institution. At the end of your lease term you give it back!

Payments

Buying

Buying Typically involves taking out an auto loan through the financial institution of your choice. You then make payments over a specific period of time with an agreed upon financing rate until the loan is repaid.


 
 

 Leasing

When you lease, you only make payments on the amount of time you use the vehicle. This means you wont build equity in the vehicle, but your payments tend to be significantly lower.



Maintenance

Buying

Because you own the vehicle, you can choose when, where, and how to maintain it.
 
  

 Leasing

Regular maintenance such as oil changes, are neccessary and required per the terms of your lease agreement, however, costs are minimal.

Mileage

Buying

There are no mileage restrictions on your vehicle.


 
   

 Leasing

Your monthly Lease payment is determined by a mileage limit. There are many different mileage options to fit almost any lifestyle. There is an overage fee, however, for miles driven over the limit.

Wear & Tear

Buying

As the owner of the vehicle, you determine how to manage any wear and tear, or damage to the vehicle.


 
 
 Leasing

Normal wear and tear from driving the vehicle is not only expected, it's covered.
