Frequently Asked Questions
What cars are eligible for the program?
All new Subarus sold by Center Subaru.
How much does the Lifetime Powertrain Coverage cost?
Center Subaru's exclusive Lifetime Powertrain Coverage is included with every new Subaru as part of the value added services we offer to all our customers.
Are there any limitations?
Center Subaru's Lifetime Powertrain Coverage means:
- No time limit.
- No maximum number of claims.
- No aggregate dollar claim amount per life of contract.
- Non-restrictive, which means there is no requirement to have any or all of your services performed at Center Subaru, unlike "oil change or tires for life" programs.
Is there a deductible?
Center Subaru is pleased to offer a disappearing, $0 deductible. Normally, there is a small $100 deductible for work performed under the Lifetime Powertrain Warranty throughout the U.S. However, if the work is conducted at Center Subaru, we will pay that deductible for you. Warranty work performed at other authorized repair facilities would be subject to a $100 deductible payable at time of service. At Center Subaru, you will also have access of one of our 21 free service loaner vehicles while repairs are being rendered.
What is covered by the Lifetime Powertrain Coverage?
Comprehensive coverage for repairs to components of the drivetrain, engine, transmission, and drive axles. See complete list below.
Do I have to have all my services performed at Center Subaru?
No. All you have to do is what you have to do anyway. Simply maintain your vehicle (including all oil changes and tire rotations) according to Subaru's Recommended Service Schedule +/- 1,000 mile tolerance either way to get it done. While you may have your servicing done at any qualified repair facility, we highly recommend you come to Center Subaru for service to give our technicians opportunity to inspect and head off any problems BEFORE they become catastrophic.
If I have servicing done elsewhere, what documentation do I need to keep?
one advantage of servicing your car at Center Subaru is that we
maintain all of your service records electronically. If you have your
service work performed elsewhere, you MUST keep every receipt to
validate that all services were performed as required by Subaru for your vehicle.
Is the coverage transferable (to a new owner)?
No. However, should you trade in your car or sell it privately, knowing you participated in the program with your oil changes and tire rotations should increase the value of your car. You can even track all of your maintenance work online. Please ask us for details.
Are there any other benefits?
Knowing that their car is covered by a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty, Subaru owners are more likely to maintain their vehicle rather than deferring important maintenance and repairs. This will either allow you to keep your car longer or it may help increase your trade value knowing that it was well maintained.
