Default Trade In BRZ - Warranty Status?

Hi Gang,

There is a used BRZ that was traded to a non-Subaru dealership local to me that I'm interested in.

It's a 2015 with 18k miles, but was check-boxed with No Warranty in the window sticker details.

I just carfaxed it and there is no dealership entries for scheduled maintenance. This scares me since BRZ's are so often modded then turned back to stock when sold.

I know there are Subaru employees on the boards here, would somebody be able to check a VIN and PM me if there is any red flags?

Also, suggestions on how should I proceed with my local Subaru dealer if I do purchase it?

why not go to your local dealership service department and have them run the VIN?

You can check with your local dealer but I wouldn't be worried about it. Also at 18k miles all that car should've had is oil changes and a 15k mile service which is minor.

the BRZ should still have manufacturer warranty. it has no "warranty implied from the selling dealer but all subaru dealer would be able to take care of it. bring the vin to local subaru dealer and have them check the remaining warranty - it should be valid as long as the title is clean.

Also note that Carfax may not show all maintenance/service done if the previous owner did oil changes themselves or done by a private shop. Most dealer work and many chain shop services should be listed but not guaranteed everything will show up on a Carfax.

When you asked the salesperson why it had no warranty, what did they say?
