Purchasing a pre-owned car can be stressful. Subaru takes the stress out of the equation with our Certified Pre-Owned inventory. Subaru Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are reliable, with a number of serious advantages you cannot get when buying non-certified pre-owned vehicles.
While it may seem cheaper at first, remember that there are significant hidden costs that can come with purchasing a non-certified vehicle. Below, we’re breaking down some of the biggest advantages to purchasing a Subaru Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle.
152 Point Inspection
Not every Subaru can make it into our Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program. Only vehicles that are less than 8 model years old, with fewer than 160,000km will be considered for the Program. Once the vehicle has been considered, the vehicle must then pass a very comprehensive inspection, meeting 152-points of service.
During the Inspection, the Subaru Service Technicians will ensure any parts of the vehicle which require any repair or maintenance are taken care of, and that the vehicle meets the highest standard of safety and quality. Once this inspection is complete, you can be sure that the Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle you’re purchasing is reliable, and will not cost you large sums of money in the future.
Once a vehicle has passed our comprehensive, 152-point inspection and determined that the model is still safe and reliable, Subaru stands behind it. Unlike non-certified, if things do happen to go wrong with the vehicle you are protected by the Subaru Certified Limited Warranty. Depending on the mileage and the age of the vehicle, the warranty may differ, offering anything from 3 months/5,000km warranty to the remainder of the 36-months/60,000km New Vehicle Limited Warranty available.
The Limited Warranty for Pre-Owned Vehicles is comprehensive, covering almost every mechanical part on the vehicle, with the exception of the general provisions laid out in the Warranty terms. The Warranty also covers major components, such as the powertrain, fuel system, steering, brake, and suspension components. There is also coverage for components in the engine, transmission, and AWD system which are specified in the Warranty terms.
You can rest assured you’re not buying a vehicle with hidden (unpleasant) surprises when you buy Certified Pre-Owned from Subaru. Each vehicle comes with a clear CarProof history report, which offers you vehicle registration history, import/export records, odometer readings, third-party history, and Canadian insurance history.
This gives you the full picture of the vehicle’s history, and how that will impact the vehicle’s future. This, in combination with the 152-point inspection and the Subaru Certified Limited Warranty, gives you the security you need to feel comfortable in the vehicle you’re buying. Purchasing a pre-owned vehicle doesn’t have to be a gamble – it can be as easy as dropping by your local Subaru dealership.
