2009 Legacy SE

Exclamation Hey guys! Proud new driver of a 2009 Subaru Legacy Special Edition...

I saw an ad on TV last week for the SE lease with $1,500 down + everything else for $189/mo on a 24 month lease with 10k miles a year and thought that was a killer deal.

My friend took me to his friend at Irvine Subaru and they had an even better deal!

I put only $55 down, total drive off was only $849 and my monthly payment is $209/mo with 12k miles a year on a brand new Legacy SE in diamond gray metallic.

Will hopefully take some pictures this weekend, I absolutely love it so far.

I am coming from an Audi A4 and most recently a 325 coupe that just got totaled and couldn't be happier with the cheaper payment and nice build quality and ride of this car.

I couldn't even land a Honda Civic lease at this price! LOL.

Sometimes its actually cheaper to lease than if you were to buy certain cars. think of it in a way of depreciation. If you buy the car, by the time you pay it off and years and years later the value of the car of course will go down. When it's time to sell it, you lose what ever depreciation value the car had. It's money gone that you will never see again, kinda like leasing... But remember that's under certain circumstances. If your plans are to mod it on the other hand, yea kinda makes no sense to lease it haha.

That's what I thought.

But then from what I hear, you lease and let the car depreciate for like 2 years. Then when the lease is up, you bring the car back and buy it as a 'used' car. Since you'll be the only driver of it if its brand new, it's like your own car.

Enjoy.

I don't have the need to mod it or change it anything.

Correct. I am spending around 6k to drive a brand new car with a full warranty for 2 years. I couldn't even buy a nice used Accord for this price.

Right.

But since the residual on this car is ridiculous with this lease, something $18,000 in 2 years so I will definitely trade it in.

I just needed something cheap and reliable (and nice) to last me a few years, and this is perfect for now.
