Default turbo isn't covered??

Hi I just purchased my first subaru and the finance manager was trying to sell me am extended bumper to bumper warranty. He told me that the only thing covered under the power train warranty is the internally lubricated engine pieces and the transmission. He specifically said that the turbocharger was only covered under the bumper to bumper warranty. Is this true or was he just trying to sell me warranty. I ended up not getting the warranty because I don't see a reason to be paying for the extra warranty during the first 3 years when it comes standard.

Not sure, you should be able to get some documentation that clarifies though. I think it's a good move to wait until further into your 3 year warranty though, you might not really care about the extended warranty after a few years of ownership due to modding. Glad I didn't purchase one myself as it would probably have been a waste for me.

I would double check that because for most years, the Turbo was a covered component with powertrain. They may have removed it from the list now. You can call SOA and find out.

Also, the extended warranty will cover different things, depending on company and coverage.

Subaru covers the turbo on your vehicle for 5 years or 60,000 miles under the powertrain warranty.

I thought so. I remember 1 year (04 or 05) where it wasn't covered and then they changed it. However, I haven't worked for a Subaru dealer in 4 years. Still friends with 2 of the SOA DPSM's.

As far as I know the turbo is still considered part of the powertrain warranty.

"Internal OR lubricated" was the terminology last time I looked it up, and the turbo is lubricated by the same oil as the engine. I would double check but I am 96.2198% sure I am correct.

Please anyone reading this ONLY buy a Subaru Added Security GOLD PLUS warranty if you want a warranty. Aftermarket ones are garbage and dealers only use them because the profit margins are higher.

Finance managers lie. They will tell you whatever you need to hear to get you to buy an extended warranty, undercoating, paint sealer, widow etching or whatever other snake oil they are peddling.

It's illegal but rarely enforced.

The entire sales department will lie to you to try to get you into a car. They are literally trained to lie through their teeth, since their paycheck is based mostly on sales commission and not an hourly rate.

Aftermarket companies have different levels of coverage ranging from the basic powertrain (aka "the wallet flush" because it covers nothing but catastrophic engine/transmission damage) up to gold or platinum which comes pretty close to the bumper to bumper Subaru gave you originally. All warranties have exclusions so be sure to read the fine print. I've always told customers if you're going to do it, step up and get something worth buying. Also people don't realize you can negociate the price of a warranty. It's no secret there is profit in the price.

People on car forums lie to. How does this comment help the OP at all?

Agree..but ALWAYS buy OEM. They care about you as an owner vs profit on the sale.

Subaru SAS (OEM "warranty") have a Retail and Invoice price line (maybe even a type of "dealer hold back incentive"). I also know that these plans can be "had" at or less than the Invoice level. Just speaking from experience, YMMY. The dealer will profit less at the time of sale; however, many car buyers will use that dealership for their periodic maintenance - another profit center that will over time offset the price difference. Recommend the Gold SAS.

Generally speaking though, someone lying to you here isn't doing it to make their monthly sales numbers. Huge difference when you have a direct financial incentive to bend the truth!

And you act like you're in the 70's buying a used Ford LTD from some salesman wearing a leisure suit. Pull your head out of your ass.

I assume most of you have never had a job that pays commission. Talking up a prodcut that interests a customer in making a possible buying decision is in no way deceitful. As I said in my previous post, (and this may require big boy pants) READ THE FINE PRINT and make an educated buying decision.
