Subaru Australia has permanently moved to five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty coverage across its range effective from January 1, 2019.
Also adjusted is the brand’s capped-price service structure for new vehicles which now extends to five years when serviced at an authorised Subaru dealership, though the program is subject to mileage limitations depending on the model.
Subaru Australia Managing Director Colin Christie said: "Subaru has long been renowned for great engineering, durability, and whole-of-life ownership experience and this latest move to five-year warranty and Capped Price Servicing offers yet more peace-of-mind for our customers, who are among the most loyal in the Australian automotive industry.
"While we have had periods of promotional five-year warranty on some models in recent times, this development offers our customers consistency right across the range."
This move sees Subaru join Volkswagen, Mazda, Holden, Ford, Peugeot/Citroen and Honda in offering five-year warranty coverage, a trend started by Hyundai.
Interestingly, only market leader Toyota and Nissan are the only mainstream brands sticking with a three-year warranty.
Kia and SsangYong still lead the way with a seven-year warranty. MG is also offering seven-year coverage on selected models.
