Certified Preowned is a term that is thrown around a lot. It is in TV commercials, YouTube ads and even billboards, but most of the time the details are left to the imagination. The term Certified Preowned just sounds like a fancy term for guaranteed used. That is of course, if you are unaware of the amazing benefits of the CPO program, specifically Subaru’s. Subaru Certified Preowned program is designed to ensure their used vehicles are mechanically sound, warranty protected and plenty of benefits.
Starting with mechanically sound, Subarus go through an intensive 152 Point Mechanical and Safety Inspection by a Certified Subaru Technician. This thorough investigation covers things such as:
- Rust Free Exterior
- Windshield Free From Cracks or Chips
- Headlights and Taillights Fully Functional
- Ignition Operational w/Functional Gauges
- Brake Pads
- Axle Seals
- Transmission Performance
- Parking Brake Functional
- Engine Coolant and Air Filter
These are only a few of the items Subaru Technicians must check off before certifying the vehicle. If you would like to see the entire inspection sheet click on the link: https://www.subaru.com/content/dam/subaru/downloads/pdf/cpo/152_point_inspection_CPO_Inspection_form_2014_update.pdf
Subaru takes their CPOs very seriously. Part of the reason could be the 7 Year / 100,000 Mile Powertrain Warranty they provide on every Certified Preowned vehicle. This comes with no deductible and a 24 Hour Roadside Assistance Plan which means if you are stranded anywhere in the United States, Subaru will send someone out to assist for free.
Additionally, Subaru Certified Preowned provides two upgrades to their warranty, the Classic and Gold Plus. Each comes with superior coverage. The Classic plan covers 1000 different components such as:
- Drive Train
- Front Suspension
- Cooling and Fuel Systems
- Air Conditioning
These items are covered for 7 Years / 100,000 Miles and include Towing and Rental Car Reimbursement! The Gold Plus plan then takes all these benefits and provides a “Bumper-To-Bumper” Coverage with Lodging and Meal Reimbursement if your road trip is interrupted by a mechanical issue. How awesome is that?
Next, Subaru provides additional benefits to its CPO customers. For one, every Subaru Certified Preowned purchase comes with a CARFAX Vehicle Report with vehicle history and prior service repairs. Second, Subaru provides a 12 Month Subscription to STARLINK Safety Plus. This system includes
- Automatic Collision Notification
- Diagnostic Alerts
- Enhanced Roadside Assistance
- SOS Emergency Assistance Feature
These features are all designed to assist you in the event of an accident or breakdown. Lastly, Subaru includes a 3-Month Subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio. No longer will you need to tune to the local radio station. Listen to your favorite music anywhere in the world. It is obvious that Subaru really treats their CPO customers well.
The Subaru Certified Preowned program is a fantastic way to purchase a preowned vehicle. They are rigorously inspected, warranty protected and come with additional benefits not provided on regular used vehicles.
