Leasing vs. Buying a Vehicle in Thousand Oaks, CA

Leasing vs. Buying Your Next Subaru in Thousand Oaks

You've done all the research, you looked at new and used Subaru vehicles in the Thousand Oaks area, you gave it a test drive, and now you are ready to take your vehicle home with you. The only issue? You have to decide whether to lease or buy your new ride. There are benefits and drawbacks to both and it's up to you to decide which one suits your needs better.

The Benefits of Leasing

  • You only pay part of what the car is worth, not the whole amount. You are essentially paying to use the car.
  • You don't have to pay the tax upfront, you'll pay it over time.
  • You don't have long term responsibility.
  • The manufacturer's warranty will make your repair costs much cheaper.
  • You have the option to purchase your vehicle at the end of your lease.
  • You can easily return your leased vehicle at our Lease Return Center.

The Benefits of Buying

  • When you finish paying the car off you own it. You are paying to buy the car.
  • You can change your car however you like with parts and accessories.
  • When you purchase your car you can build equity on it which can sometimes prove to be less expensive.
  • There is no mileage limit when you buy a vehicle so you don't have to worry about how far you travel.
  • You can sell your vehicle whenever you want to.

Both buying and leasing can be excellent options when you are ready to take home your vehicle. If you are interested or want to learn more, then come to DCH Subaru of Thousand Oaks and one of our friendly team members from our auto finance center can help you to decide which one is better for you.
