When you buy a Subaru Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, you can feel confident that it's ready to roll. Each vehicle is from the current or past five model years and has been driven fewer than 80,000 miles. Since 94 percent of the vehicles we've built in the past ten years are still on the road today, you can expect to enjoy it for awhile.

You'll know your vehicle meets Subaru's high standards because each one has received a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report, a rigorous 152-point inspection and reconditioning wherever needed. And, it will have a Subaru-backed extended vehicle service agreement and roadside assistance, so you can buy pre-owned with peace of mind.

Certified Pre-Owned Questions and Answers:

What makes a Certified Pre-Owned Subaru different from any other used Subaru?
  • A lot! In order for your Pre-Owned Subaru to even qualify for certification, it must pass a stringent 152-point inspection. All items that do not pass must be corrected in order to qualify for certification.

What are some of the items on this 152-point inspection?
  • We road test the vehicle and check the under carriage. We check fluid levels, filters, wiper blades, lights, battery, tires and tire pressure, brakes, audio equipment, power equipment (windows, locks etc.), exhaust system, cosmetics, air conditioning and heater, defogger, clutch and operation of automatic transmission, cruise-control and power moon-roof (to name a few).

Okay, it's thoroughly inspected and reconditioned, but what kind of protection plan will my Certified Pre-Owned Subaru have?
  • The standard mechanical breakdown protection on a Subaru Certified Pre-Owned vehicle is a seven year/100,00 mile Powertrain plan.

Are there optional upgrades to the standard Powertrain Coverage?
  • Yes. Give us a call at (802) 223-5232.

Does the Subaru Certified Pre-Owned program have a deductible?
  • No. The deductible is zero dollars per repair visit on the standard plan. The upgrade plans are available with zero, fifty and one-hundred dollar options.

What should I do if I have a mechanical breakdown?
  • Try to get your Subaru back to your Subaru dealer, unless further damage would result from driving it. Otherwise, you can call the toll-free number for roadside assistance. Added security is honored throughout the United States and Canada.

What is a CARFAX® vehicle histroy report and why is it important?
  • The CARFAX® history report shows if the vehicle has ever been in a major collision, has had flood damage or was subject to a manufacturer buyback (lemon law buyback). CARFAX® is the most trusted provider of vehicle history information. They have built a database of more than four billion records that cover virtually every car and truck and the road today. All Subaru Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are backed by the CARFAX® buyback guarantee. For information on CARFAX®, visit
