Manchester drivers may decide that leasing is the best option for them if they love that new car smell! Leasing means that you can drive a new model every few years. When you lease, usually you will have lower monthly payments and potentially a smaller down payment. Nashua Subaru drivers who find themselves wanting the latest and most cutting‑edge technologies and safety features, may find that leasing is their best option.


Buying a brand new Subaru may be the best option for you if vehicle ownership is very important to you and you would like to have the Subaru for the long‑term. Nashua and Concord drivers that recognize they will be driving the vehicle a lot and putting a substantial amount of miles on the car and don't want to have to keep track or feel restricted, may also want to consider purchasing.



When you lease a new Subaru, you won't own it. You pay to use it during the term of your lease, allowing you to drive the latest Subaru models every few years.


Once your financial obligations are met, you will own your Subaru. When you finance a Subaru, you have the ability to sell or trade it at any time.



When leasing a new Subaru, you will be paying for the vehicle's depreciation, plus any applicable taxes and fees instead of paying for the actual purchase price. This means you can drive a premium vehicle for less money than you might pay if you were to purchase the Subaru with financing over a similar term.


If you finance your new new Subaru, you're payments will be based on the terms of your financing contract. You will have a set number of payments, each of which may help you build equity in your vehicle. Since you're paying for the vehicle's purchase price over the term of your contract, your monthly payment will typically be higher than if you were leasing the same vehicle over a similar term.



You can choose a variety of mileage options to fit your driving needs when leasing a new Subaru. Whatever you choose as your base mileage option, you will have an opportunity to purchase more miles later on if you want.


There is never a limit to how many miles you can put on your Subaru when you choose to purchase. However, dow the road if you decide to sell or trade your Subaru, the amount mileage you've accrued may affect its value.

Wear & Use


When you lease, you usually will be charged for any damages made to the vehicle. Cracks, cuts, tears or stains that are more than 1/2 inch may be considered excess wear and tear. You will want to make sure you take great care of the condition of our Subaru.


Once you fully pay for your Subaru, you will own it, so there will be no charges for excessive wear and use. However, if you decide at some point to sell or trade your Subaru, any excessive wear and use may impact its value.



At the end of your lease, you will have the opportunity to return your leased Subaru to Prime Subaru Manchester, purchase it for a predetermined price, or buy or lease a new–Subaru.


When you own, you don't have any restrictions in terms of mileage or how long you own the vehicle. You also have the ability to put your unique stamp on your Subaru with cosmetic alterations, which may be why buying is right for you.
