#1 of 6 Questions on Subaru CPO Warranties
Mar 03, 2012 (6:36 am)
I ma interested in Imprezas old models before 2012 (4 door or 5 door) and I will probably go with a CPO.
I went here: http://www.subaru.com/vehicles/certified-pre-owned.html?s_kwcid=+CPO%20+subaru
Never bought a CPO before and so confused by warranty issues, so here are my questions:
If the car has some original warranty left, is that going to be transferred to me?
Where should I look for terms conditions of 6year/100,000 mile Powertrain plan? How do I know what's covered/not covered ?
If I am not satisfied with 6year/100,000 mile Powertrain plan, I should buy Added Security Extended Service Contracts (either Classic or Gold Plus). Correct ?
Thanks Subaru owners !

No, it will not transfer, and although the owner is suppose to get a prorated return on his unused warranty, good luck to him in getting it. To get my unused warranty money returned, I needed to contact Subaru USA twice as the dealership (which actually send the check out) would not release/send the check to me, and after my initial call, the dealership refused to let me speak with the manager responsible for the warranty refund check. They played phone tag - even sending my call to their Nissan dealership as part of their avoidance technique.It was not a desirable experience, and I will think long and hard before ever considering buying a Subaru again. It was as if none of the consumer protections developed over the last forty years even mattered.

The factory warranty stays with the car, so yes, it will transfer.
If the car has a Subaru extended warranty, that can be transferred to a new owner or, as paulvincent1 stated, the unused portion of the warranty (in terms of time/mileage, whichever is less) can be prorated back to the current owner.

We sold our 2002 Legacy with ~6 months or so and a lot of miles left on it.
Gotta say, it made selling the car sooooooooooo easy. Every little concern the buyer had, I just reminded him - he had bumper to bumper warranty coverage.
I doubt he ever used it, but he paid full asking price.

I'm on my 2nd new Subie and can tell you that if an extended warranty is what you are after, you should try Don at Mastria. I shopped plenty and found him to be much cheaper on the gold plus plans than anyone else I contacted, especially my selling dealer. Bought plans from him on both cars (about 4 years apart) and could not be happier with the way I was treated and the price. $1495.00 got me the 7 year 100k gold plus extended plan , $0.00 deductible. The next closest quote I got was $1975.00 with a $50.00 deductible and others were more than that! Don's contact is 888-848-4309

That's the same price I paid for the same warranty, same seller. It was an excellent experience.
