Bob Moore Auto Group offered a list of reasons it suggests buying over leasing, including savings for those who drive the same car for a long time or put a lot of miles on it, since most lease programs limit the amount of allowable yearly miles.
“Many of our Subaru customers love their Subaru vehicles so much, they are happy having the same one for many years," Danny Stapp, general manager of Bob Moore Subaru, said. "For these people, purchasing their cars makes a lot of sense. After they pay off their car loan, the only cost of having the Subaru is the typical maintenance and repairs."
Lease agreements also require vehicles to be kept in good condition, but "good" can be a matter of opinion, the dealer said.
"This can be very hard to accomplish if Fido is chewing on the seat belts or if Little Mikey decides the arm rest is the perfect place to use markers to create his next art masterpiece," the website said.
Drivers who modify their vehicles with lift kits, running boards or other after-market modifications shouldn't lease, since agreements do not allow modifications, the dealer said.
