Factors to Consider Before Purchasing a Subaru

Last updated 5 years ago

A Subaru is an excellent vehicle to consider if you want all-terrain and all-weather capabilities, top-notch reliability, and impressive value. But before you visit the Subaru dealer to begin shopping, a number of factors should be considered. Continue reading for a list of considerations that will ensure a positive car-shopping experience at your Subaru dealership.

Research Vehicles Online

Before you purchase a Subaru, make sure that you know which Subaru is right for you. Subaru’s new-vehicle lineup consists of a variety of crossovers and hatchbacks, and even includes a sports car, the BRZ, and a sedan, the Legacy. Go to your local Subaru dealer’s website and compare the fuel efficiency, performance, style, and interior volume of a variety of new and used vehicles to make your decision.

Know How to Test-Drive a Car

Once you’ve got a list of Subarus you are interested in, go to the Subaru dealer to test drive each one. When you’re behind the wheel, pay close attention to the visibility, braking performance, acceleration, ride comfort, and handling response of each vehicle. On your test drives, see if you can take each Subaru out on several different types of roads so that you can get a more complete impression of how the vehicle drives.

Consider both Buying and Leasing

If you like the idea of having low monthly payments, leasing a new Subaru might be an excellent route for you. Though you won’t own the vehicle, you will have the freedom to drive it during the leasing period. After that period is up, you can just drop it off at the dealer, sign a new lease, and drive off in another new Subaru. If you would prefer to keep your car for longer than two to three years, buying a Subaru is your best bet.
