Subaru of America, Inc. was founded in 1968 as a subsidiary of Fuji Heavy Industries of Japan. Its American line of vehicles includes the Crosstrek, Forester, Outback, Legacy, Impreza, WRX, STI, and BRZ. All Subaru models are equipped with a SUBARU BOXER® engine and the brand is known for being at the forefront of advanced technology, especially when it comes to safety.
Due to the exciting developments of new features and upgrades available, the thought of what to do when your vehicle needs repair is probably not the first thing you think of during the purchase process. It’s this sophistication that allows cars to have longer road lives. However, even the best-equipped vehicles will require maintenance over the years.
Traditional Subaru manufacturer warranties last for 3-years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first, for a bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Depending how reliant you are on your vehicle, you can easily go past your warranty without realizing it.
Fortunately, US Car Protection offers vehicle service contracts so you don’t have to worry about coverage once your current warranty expires. Rather than face a lapse in coverage, you have the chance to plan for your future and reduce unexpected vehicle repair costs.
As time goes on, it’s the main parts of the vehicle that become a problem, which can mean hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars for repair. If unprepared, this financial hit can cause stress, which can be avoided through one of our customizable policies.
Average Repair Costs for Subaru Vehicles
The wear and tear of the car will be affected more if you are constantly in stop-and-go traffic or if you commute long distances to work. Make sure to ask for details on what your Subaru extended warranty covers. If you are interested in purchasing your vehicle from a private owner, ask to review the Subaru certified pre-owned warranty prior to buying.
Understanding your coverage ahead of time prevents unwanted surprises down the road.
