2022 Subaru Forester | Fox Subaru | Auburn, NY

If you're new to leasing, the finance team at Fox Subaru is here to help you understand the basics and get you behind the wheel of a new Ascent, Forester, or Crosstrek. Read on to learn what it means to lease a Subaru sedan or SUV.

Leasing defined

When you lease a Subaru, your monthly payments don't go toward owning the vehicle. Instead, you're paying to borrow the vehicle for an agreed-upon span of time, and for a maximum number of miles per year. The amount you pay is mostly based on how much the vehicle is expected to depreciate (i.e., lose value) during that period.

Elements of a lease

The Fox Subaru finance team will work with you to create a lease agreement that makes sense for your budget and helps you get the vehicle you want. Expect it to include several key elements.

  • Residual percentage and amount: These numbers measure your vehicle's expected depreciation and help to determine the size of your monthly payment.
  • Lease term: This refers to the number of years you're agreeing to lease the vehicle for.
  • Money factor: This is like an APR for a loan, except that it's designed for a leasing situation.
  • Allotted miles: This is the number of miles you're allowed to drive each year. If you go over this number, you'll incur mileage overage charges.
  • Disposition fee: This covers cleaning and other dealer costs after your lease ends.

Benefits of leasing

When you lease a Subaru, you can take advantage of some great benefits.

  • You'll pay less per month than you would if you were purchasing the same vehicle.
  • Lower payments mean you can afford to drive a higher trim level with better features.
  • Because leases only last for a few years, you can continuously drive a relatively new model with the most advanced tech and features.
  • You'll save money on service because your lease will be up before the warranty lapses. Regular maintenance may even be covered as part of your lease.
