Buy vs. Lease at Liberty Subaru

Struggling with your Buy vs. Lease Decision? Liberty Subaru is Here to Help

There are complex factors that go into the buy versus lease consideration when choosing from our lineups of new Subaru models and pre-owned vehicles here in Emerson, NJ. On one end, the ownership benefits and freedom from mileage and customization restrictions prove beneficial for the purchasing side. You will have the opportunity to negotiate a trade-in value when you do decide to move on from this vehicle sometime down the line, as equity is established and your ownership status is solidified once an auto loan is officially paid off. But for leasing, the lower monthly payments and term flexibility also prove appealing. Other advantages include the opportunity to still operate a new Subaru model with some warranty coverage, less up front money with your investment, and a range of different options when your lease term does conclude.
