Which Payment Plan is Right for You?


Financing through an auto loan is a great choice for customers who may have their heart set on one new Subaru or used car they wish to make their own. In an auto loan, you pay off the total balance of the vehicle through a structured loan settlement, paid through a local bank or lending institution outside of our dealership. There are no restrictions on miles or customizations, and once the vehicle is paid off, it is yours to do with as you choose. When you customize your deal online, you can personalize your monthly loan payments to help make the process more budget-friendly.


Leasing is done primarily with new Subaru models and works similar to a rental agreement, wherein drivers agree to drive the car for a pre-set number of months and miles, which you can also choose when you customize your deal online. Lease contracts and the lease-end return process are typically handled in-house by our finance center team. Once your lease contract ends, you can lease another new Subaru, or talk to us about paying off the remaining balance of the vehicle. This short-term payment solution is a great way of ensuring that you always drive the newest car with the newest technology.


While few choose this option for pricier cars, you may still pay for a vehicle wholesale by linking up to your bank account. Buying a new car with cash is a great way to get the vehicle you want now, without worrying about long or short-term monthly payments.

How to Start Your Deal Online

Driers from Redwood City to Palo Alto, CA can begin their deal online and customize a new financing or leasing arrangement in just a few easy steps. You can even use this digital retailing system to pay cash, if you choose. When you find your next car, follow these easy steps to save you travel time and time spent at our dealership:

  • Personalize Payments: When you find a new Subaru or used car you like, you can personalize monthly loan or lease payments according to your desired loan terms, including APR and down payment. If you plan on leasing, you can also adjust your desired annual mileage.
  • Add Trade-In: While trade is not generally a requirement for leasing, if you plan on financing, it can save you a great deal. Use our handy trade-in value form to get a fair cash appraisal for your old ride, which you can then apply to the balance of your loan or cash payment. If you drive an old Subaru, we encourage you to trade-up to a new Subaru and see if you're eligible for the Subaru Guaranteed Trade-In Program (GTP).
  • Apply for Financing: If you plan on leasing, you can submit a basic financing application to us for pre-approval. For auto loans, the digital retailing system will guide you through our simple and secure credit application so we can approve you to work with one of our many reputable local lenders. The form keeps your personal data secure and encrypted.
  • Submit/Schedule a Test Drive: After everything is approved and you're ready to start your deal, you can prepare for your visit by scheduling a test drive and visiting us at Carlsen Subaru. If all the paperwork is completed online, all we will need to do is have you sign your deal, make a photocopy of your insurance info/driver's license, and appraise your trade to confirm its value.
