Should You Buy or Lease Your Next New Subaru?

Though there are numerous used models for sale in the current market, some are undeniably better in terms of the advantages they have to offer. A certified pre-owned Subaru is a perfect example of this. Taking all the benefits that come along with its certification into mind, it is easy to see how a certified pre-owned Subaru will ensure you get more value with your used car purchase.

What Does it Take for a Subaru to be Certified?

For starters, only select Subaru models can qualify for certification. A model in question must not only be under 6 years old but have less than 80K miles counted on the odometer as well. Upon clearing these prerequisites, it must then undergo a 152-point inspection administered by a technician who specializes in Subaru products. Internal mechanics, technology and related software, as well as exterior and interior quality are all checked during this process. In the case that certain components do not meet the brand's standards, said component is repaired or replaced to restore the vehicle's condition. Post inspection, the model is put to one last road test to make sure its equipment is in excellent working order.

What is Included with Certification?

If it does well with respect to all the requirements, then it can finally bear the designation of a certified pre-owned Subaru. As a bonus, this prestigious title is followed with one of two optional warranties—that is, the Classic and the Gold Plus plans.

The Classic covers up to a thousand parts including major components like engine, transmission, suspension, and more. It also comes with roadside assistance which features complementary towing as well as rental car reimbursement during the repairs covered.

Meanwhile, the Gold Plus covers all the components listed as a part of the Classic plan and many more. In fact, its coverage is almost equivalent to the "bumper-to-bumper" coverage of factory warranties, provided there are some maintenance and body part exceptions. Like the Classic plan, the Gold Plus also comes with roadside assistance, but better still, the advanced plan reimburses lodging and meals in the event that a breakdown occurs too.

Both plans are good for coverage for 7 years or 100K miles, whichever comes first.

However, the additional warranty is not the only benefit that comes with certification. Owners get a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report, a one-year Trial Subscription to STARLINK™ Safety Plus Package with Automatic Collision Notification, and other great supplements. In this way, a certified pre-owned Subaru definitely has the upper-hand when compared to ordinary used models.
