Now, for the differences between leasing and financing: leasing allows lower monthly payments with flexible lease terms and mileage options to determine length of the lease (terms and limits apply); whereas with financing, each monthly payment brings you closer to ownership with unlimited mileage. 

Additional costs that may be associated with leasing are acquisition fees, taxes, registration, and title fees. Financing charges that you may incur are taxes, registration, and title fees.

Certified pre-owned vehicles are not available to lease; however, you can finance a certified pre-owned vehicle. Since certified pre-owned vehicles are priced lower, it is possible for you to drive away in a newer Subaru!

Before you turn in your lease you need to schedule a courtesy pre-inspection of your lease about forty-five days before the lease expires. If you choose to turn in your lease early you can request a pre-inspection at any time; however, it will expire in sixty days. The pre-inspection includes a detailed evaluation of wear and use of your vehicle to provide you with an idea of possible lease-end charges. A report of the pre-inspection will available for explaining any wear and use items that you could be charged for when you turn in your lease. This report is not intended to be a bill, it is an idea of potential fees that you may be responsible for.

At the end of your lease you have the option to trade in your Subaru for a brand-new Subaru to lease, buy the Subaru you were leasing, or choose a different vehicle. Contact Klamath Falls Subaru and ask about extending your current Subaru lease as you wait to upgrade or select another vehicle. If you finance your Subaru, when you decide to upgrade you get the advantage of full trade-in or resale value.
