Buying Or Leasing a New Subaru: Which is Right For You?

When you've made up your mind that you want to welcome a new Subaru into the family, then comes the second big decision: should you buy it, or lease it?

Here at Crews Subaru of Charleston, we think that they can both be great options for a variety of people. Both have their different advantages for drivers in North Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and Summerville. But we're here to help! We constantly update our Subaru vehicle incentives page, so you can know that you're getting a great deal, and you can compare costs between the two. Whatever you decide, you'll have an amazing, reliable, and long-lasting new Subaru to take home!

We've compiled a brief list of reasons why buying--or leasing--might be a good choice for you.

Who Should Buy a New Subaru?

It may be worth it to make the commitment of buying a new car if you:

  • Like the feeling of really owning a new car
  • Plan to own the car for the rest of its life
  • Move around a lot between states
  • Know that you will put a lot of wear and tear on the vehicle (more than the average)
  • Are confident that you will still want that model in three years
  • Don't want the hassle of keeping track of your miles

Who Should Lease a New Subaru?

If you can't relate to some of the statements above, then leasing may be a great option for you. If you:

  • Love the feeling of driving a new car, and want to replace it every few years
  • Want to pay a smaller monthly payment but still drive a brand-new car
  • Drive about 12,000 miles per year (though we happily offer higher-mileage leases, too!)
  • Think you may want to easily switch to a different model in 2-3 years
  • Like having the latest technology and gadgets
  • Want to be able to trade-in for a new car with no hassle
  • Want to be able to drive a better car for less money
