Default 2015 Launch Editions back in stock?

So I'm seeing at least 2 or 3 launch editions back in stock in my area alone. What do you think, couldn't afford the payments or just beat the hell out of them and traded them in?

The economy is in the ****ter and they bought too much car or made a flesh turd and suddenly had the urge to get a minivan because one child demands 10 metric tons of **** carried with it at all times to move anywhere outside of the house.

Are leases that short? Honest question, I've never looked into leasing before.

I was just going by the '15s coming out in 2014 and it's 2016 now and the shortest leases I've seen from Subaru are two years...

But technically when they arrived was mid 2014 so that would really be just 1.5 years, so that would be too short... I was too quick in writing that

Could be anything, really... Trading in/selling for something else, can't afford it... No one knows.

early lease turn in due to mileage being high?
can't afford the payments?
traded in for an outback/crosstrek/forester because they want a wagon?

New shiney thing, trade in, roll over onto new note.

Lather, rinse, repeat until you have a $92,000 Nissan Versa.

I saw, 4k, 10k and 22k.

If my 2010 wasn't paid for, I'd be all over it.. I gotta stop looking, no car payments is nice

Subaru isn't leasing a car for 1 year. What you are seeing is two scenarios:

1: Buyers Remorse: 1 reason or another they just didn't like it, or they had some issues out of the gate, or they couldn't afford it, but just because it is a launch edition, doesn't mean people will love them.

2: SOA cars. All of their 15s should have made their way through auction at this point. SOA only auctions their fleet cars to subaru dealers, so if its at a suby dealer it could be a fleet car.

I would say your points are most likely the reason they are coming back in stock. but on the other hand my dealer did mention they have done 1 year and even 6 month lease's before

Not on a special edition STI. would make no sense to do a one year lease on that for Subaru when they sold the second they hit the lot.

I remember a guy, on this forum, who was so upside down on bad car purchasing decisions - that he had an F150 (or something of the sort) he owed about $70k on.

i wish i could find that thread.

I would love to know which bad dealerships kept letting him roll over so much negative equity... That's pure insanity!

I would shoot myself at that rate.

if a dealer can find a bank to take it, they will sell it. Suckers everywhere.

My dealer has one, and my guy is cool so I asked him how it came in. Previously registered owner is SOA. Fleet car.

In places with traffic, you often see buyers like the "idea" of sports car with a manual but after a few month dislike the "reality" of sports car with a manual in heavy traffic every day. I have seen a decent amount of M3s and M4s near new used on the market as well- nearly always manuals.

There was a guy on VWVortex years ago that owed 50k on a 5 year old Maxima. When you constantly trade in every 2-3 years and use 8 year loan terms, it's easy to get extremely upside-down on a vehicle, especially when the cars have crazy depreciation curves.

I have a co-worker with a similar story. Had a MK4 GTI that he owed like 40K during his younger years. He sucked it up and leased a base model Mazda 3 for 2 years and came out the other side a free man. Said it was tough as hell to swallow his pride, but he made the right decision.

Geez, I swear I was almost that guy. I was lucky to just barely avoid being completely upside down in my MK6 GTI before I bought my WRX. When I bought the GTI I had horrible credit but plenty of income and my MK4 Jetta was about to give up the ghost. I took the horrendous interest rate (11.67%....yeah) and kept it for a year.

Luckily I almost broke even when buying the WRX between the dealer pricing close to invoice as well as a 10% down payment. Plus my interest rate got cut down to 3.99% because I fixed my credit during the year I owned the VW. So glad not to be dealing with the stress of being upside down in a car anymore though.

I've been through 3 new cars in the last 3 or 3.5 years and luckily I've had positive equity on every trade in.

I'd take the longer term and pay extra every month, because I could afford the shorter term but it's nice to have that lower pay option if I need it.

2013 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ Turbo -> 2014 Subaru Impreza Sport -> and now my 2016 WRX

I plan on keeping the WRX for as long as it'll last me.

Good call on the Sonic. I've had numerous customers tell me that buying a Sonic was the worst decision they have EVER made lol

It has been ~2 years since the Launch Edition STI was released. Definitely 2 year lease returns.
