Learn the Difference Between Buying and Leasing at Carter Subaru Shoreline in Seattle, WA

While 95% of Subarus are still on the road, Americans change cars every three to four years. When you trade in your car, your decision to purchase or lease a Subaru depends on your individual needs. If you're looking for the feeling of ownership, a car you can put a lot of miles on, or to drive the full life of the car, you may look into purchasing your next vehicle. Otherwise, we recommend leasing as viable option. When you purchase your Subaru, you finance the whole cost of the vehicle, while leasing only pays for the depreciation over the term of the lease. After your lease term, you can purchase the car based on the guaranteed future value established at the beginning of your lease, sell or trade the car and keep the equity, or walk away with no negative equity and find a new lease or purchase a different vehicle. Whether you're looking for the long term commitment of purchasing a vehicle or the ability to get a feel for your vehicle with a lease, you'll find an incredible Subaru selection and fantastic savings at Carter Subaru Shoreline serving Everett, Washington.
