If you are in the market for a new Subaru WRX, you have two options to get the car you are after. You can either purchase it or you can lease it. For some people, leasing is better than buying. But for other people, buying is better than leasing. If you are not sure which category you fall into, here are a few factors that may make buying a new Subaru WRX for sale better than leasing for you. 

The Car Will Be Heavily Driven

When you lease a car, your lease terms typically only allow you to drive the car for 10,000 to 15,000 miles per year. If you drive more than this, you are often charged a hefty over the mile limit fee that drastically increases the cost of financing the car. Those who drive more than 10,000 to 15,000 miles per year are typically better off buying a car, rather than leasing one, for this reason. 

You Plan on Keeping the Car For Many Years

If you plan on keeping the car for many years to come, buying the vehicle may be the better choice for you. Some people prefer to have new automobiles all the time. For these people, a lease is perfect. They keep the car for the lease term, usually two to four years, and then lease a new car when that lease is up, always having a new car to drive. Other people prefer to get  a car and drive it as long as it is reliable. If you are in the later camp, buying is the better choice for you. 

The Inside of the Car May Get Dirty or Stained

The last reason why buying may be a better choice for you is because there is a possibility the inside of the car may get dirty or stained. If you have kids in your car or pets who frequently ride with you, the inside of the car will likely not be clean and spotless. When you lease a car, you can be charged for stains or damage to the car at the end of the lease term. Many parents and those who drive with their pets frequently are usually better off buying. 

If you plan on driving the car a lot, want to keep the car for many years or you transport kids or pets in the car and it may get dirty or stained, buying a new Subaru WRX for sale may be better than leasing one in your situation.
