#1 of 3 Returning leased Subaru - best way
Jan 10, 2013 (7:09 pm)
Dear Subaru Community,
I am currently 2 years into a Subaru Forester 2011 36month lease and need to move to Europe in July 2013 (5 months before lease end). I am wondering what my best way to do this is.
Model: Subaru Forester 2011 2.5x Premium, 4DR, manual.
Miles: currently 9000. Will be ca. 11000 by July 2013.
Lease End: Dec 2013. Want to leave July 2013
Purchase Option at end of Lease: $16000
Monthly Lease: $316
- Should I try and sell the car and buyout my lease in July? (I don't really have enough time to take care of this since the move to Europe is already taxing enough)
- Should I work with my dealer to buyout my lease?
- Should I shop this around other dealers?
- Should I work with Subaru Financial Services to return the lease earlier?
Any advice is much appreciated.

No personal experience with leases, but you could try a site like lease trader, perhaps.

Yeah, that's what I was going to say. You're best option is to find someone to take over the last year or so of the lease! It'll cost you less in both time and money, and will be a good deal for somebody at the same time.
