You have done your research, gone for a test drive, and found the perfect Subaru for you. Now it is time to start the financing process. While many drivers may start to panic, Subaru of Macon works hard to make applying for credit easy and stress-free. Before we get to the paperwork, we want to help our customers decide whether to leasing or financing their next Subaru.

There are pros and cons to both leasing and buying. Some drivers are better suited to leasing their Subaru while buying a better option for others. So what is the difference between leasing and financing?

  • Leasing: Many drivers from around choose to lease their Subaru. Leasing is when you enter an agreement with us, the dealership, to borrow a new Outback, Impreza or WRX for a period of time at a specific amount each month. Leasing a new vehicle is a great way to get into a more expensive model for less money. Leasing also covers many of your service requirements and allows you to easily get into a new Subaru when your lease is up. The downside to leasing is you are can only drive a certain amount of miles in a year and you can't make any modifications to your Subaru since it will be returning to the dealership.
  • Financing: Getting an auto loan, or financing, is when you buy your next Subaru from the dealership. Once you are done making monthly payments you will own the vehicle outright. There is no limit to how many miles you can drive in a year and you can make any modifications you wish. Financing your vehicle often requires more money down at signing and can be more difficult to get sell the vehicle when you want to upgrade your ride.
