Subaru has decided to stop offering its aftercare program for new cars. Replaced with 5-year warranty.

Subaru has decided to stop offering its aftercare program for new cars in the UK.

It was offered for free and included a free wash and vacuum every three years, and most importantly, free dent and alloy wheel repair within that period. Replacing the ETC program is a 5-year / 100,000-mile warranty for all models in the lineup, except the WRX STi which comes with only a 3-year / 60,000-mile warranty.

It is not known at the moment whether those who purchased a new Subaru before the program was axed will still be able to benefit from it. This program also guaranteed a free key replacement, winter tire storage, along with free pick-up and return during servicing. The Japanese company estimated this program to be worth about 7,000 GBP (8,628 EUR).
