Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles at Capitol Subaru

Subaru Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles – Model Information Directory

Don’t let the term “pre-owned” fool you. When it comes to rides that have been loved before, pre-owned is a loose description of the value of the vehicle. Not all used models are in good enough condition to merit the title of CPO, and not all used vehicles are on their last leg. When we say certified pre-owned, we’re putting an emphasis on the “certified” portion of this moniker. CPO vehicles are a big step up from traditional used rides, and are just a step down from brand-new models. Certified pre-owned vehicles hold their overall value better than a new model, as they have already cruised down roadways before and seen some miles. Certified pre-owned vehicles are models that come back to our dealership in excellent condition and are sent to be inspected and tested to see if they are worthy of the “certified” title. A series of rigorous tests and safety standards are done and every model is examined to see if the vehicle in question is worthy of the name. When a vehicle passes the CPO inspection and meets our high level of standards, it re-enters the market with the coveted CPO title and is available for purchase at this time. These vehicles are refurbished after testing, so you’re getting a ride that is as close to “new” as you can find in the preloved category.

To earn a certified pre-owned ranking, vehicles must pass a rigorous 152-point Vehicle Safety Inspection. Once thoroughly examined, any parts that do not meet the rigid standards of Subaru are repaired or replaced as necessary to keep the vehicle in running for CPO. And for added peace of mind on your side, CPO rides come with a detailed CARFAX vehicle history report sheet so everything is as transparent as can be. As an added bonus to help you adjust to your new CPO ride, all certified pre-owned models include a 3 month trial subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio, and a subscription for the STARLINK® Safety Plus Package with Automatic Collision Notification through the first year. And the next time you’re in the market for a ride, you get a coupon for $500 towards your next purchase or lease of a Subaru, so you can visit us again when the time is right.

Benefits and Warranties of CPO Vehicles

Not only do you get to save with a certified pre-owned ride, but you get the added benefit of limited warranties included with your purchase, something a regular used vehicle can’t offer. All warranties are backed by the 7-year/100,000 mile Powertrain Plan, which covers any issue with the engine, transmission, and all-wheel drive so depending on the ride of your choosing, a sales representative can help you figure out what that means for your specific ride. On top of limited warranties, ask an associate about the Subaru Added Security extended service plans, backed by Subaru Motor Vehicles of America, so you can get the most out of your ride. If you want to hear about other available options, the optional wrap-around coverage is available for any Capitol Subaru customer.
