Subaru Forester Loan Calculator

Our Loan Calculator display shows you how your Subaru Forester loan balance compares to the ongoing value of your vehicle. With financing, each monthly payment will reduce the balance of your loan. Unfortunately, during this same period, your vehicle's resale value will decline as well. The purpose of this tool is to show you how you can finance your Forester to ensure that your loan balance declines faster than the value of your vehicle.

With your results below, the goal is to have the shaded area be entirely green. This likely means that the value of your vehicle will always be greater than your loan balance. If you see yellow or red, your loan balance at some point will be at or above the value of your vehicle. You want to avoid this as we describe here. For the best financial outcome, adjust your loan terms, or choose a vehicle that doesn't depreciate as rapidly. We've also created a video that explains these scenarios and demonstrates the loan calculator.
