Here at Subaru of Naples, we want you to make an informed decision about whether buying or leasing your new Subaru is the right option.

First, consider your lifestyle and financial situation. In some scenarios, leasing is the best option because you get to upgrade your car every few years.

Leasing Pros

  • You can drive an upscale car for less money than if you were to buy - Opt for a higher trim level and only pay slightly more per month.
  • Your vehicle remains under factory warranty - Don't stress about repair and maintenance bills!
  • Lower monthly payments - Drive a brand new car for an affordable price.
  • Trade up into a brand new Subaru at the end of your lease term - You get to have a new car every few years!

Buying Pros

  • No mileage limitations - Plan that cross-country road trip!
  • You can sell your car at any time - If you are ready for a newer Subaru, you can sell your car any
  • Perform all of the upgrades and modifications you want!
  • YOU own your Subaru - You won't need to turn it in to the dealership at the end of your lease terms, you can keep it as long as you want.

Leasing Cons
