Subaru offers a perk package

Have your say

SUBARU is to offer free wheel refurbishment, free bodywork repairs, free regular cleaning services and a host of other ownership perks all within the cost of one of its new vehicles.

Anyone buying a new Subaru will benefit from the scheme, which lasts three years and includes complimentary pick-up and return from scheduled services, replacement of lost keys and an insurance excess cover contribution.

Limits apply to each category. The scheme is called Everything Taken Care of, or Subaru ETCo.

It’s designed to make owning a Subaru ‘easier and more beneficial than ever’, according to a statement released by the company.

The benefits can also be passed on to a new owner if the car should be sold again within the three-year window.

Subaru already offers a general three-year warranty on its cars, a three-year warranty on their paintwork and a 12-year bodyshell anti-corrosion warranty.

Marketing director of Subaru UK, Kenyon Neads, says: “Subaru ETCo is available to all Subaru retail customers and we believe it has no rival in the UK as an aftercare package.”

The full package includes the following, and is included with all new Subarus bought from this month:

l Minor dent and scratch repairs

l Alloy wheel repairs

l Monthly wash ‘n’ vac

l Annual makeover - full valet

l Lost keys replacement

l Service collection and delivery

l Annual wheel alignment check

l First MOT cover (and contribution to repairs)

l Accident management service

l Insurance excess cover contribution

l Winter wheel and tyre storage
