If you’re the driver who is undecided on which route to take for buying your next vehicle, here are a few tips on fulfilling your decision to purchase a used vehicle or a certified pre-owned vehicle. So, you’re out and about looking for a reliable and affordable car, truck, or SUV to replace the old garbage bin you’ve been driving around in for the last couple of years. There are plenty of options available to you when you shop at dealerships like Sangera Subaru in Bakersfield, and there is nothing better than scrolling through the selection of used cars, as well as certified pre-owned cars knowing they are coming from a trustworthy source.


Now, both of these inventories consists of pre-owned models that are inspected for safety and driveability. Depending on the mileage, year, and condition of the vehicle, determines if it is worthy of the certified pre-owned certificate. Unlike used car models, a certified model comes with a warranty with your purchase. Depending on the vehicle manufacturer, your warranty benefits may vary. However, for a Subaru vehicle to receive the Certified Pre-owned label, it must undergo an in-depth 152-point inspection to receive the following benefits:

  • 7-Year/100,000-mile powertrain coverage, 0$ deductible
  • 24/7 Roadside Assistance
  • Carfax Vehicle History Report
  • SiriusXM 3-month Trial Subscription
  • One-Year Trial Subscription to StarLink with Safety Plus Package with Automatic Collision Notification
  • $500 Owner Loyalty Coupon

Though Certified pre-owned vehicles tend to cost slightly more than used vehicles, you receive benefits that will insure your vehicle’s longevity and assist you in the case of a breakdown or accident. It is like buying a new car from the dealership, with only a few numbers on the odometer. Browse the selection of Subaru models in our Used and Certified Pre-Owned inventories to find an affordable value that matches your budget.
