Do You Have to Use OEM Parts to Keep the Factory Warranty on a New Subaru?

Answers to your service questions

There's no doubt that the same parts made or approved by the factory are the best way to repair and maintain your vehicle. However, Subaru understands that access to OEM and factory-approved parts may not always be available. That's why OEM parts are not always necessary to ensure the factory warranty remains valid. However, it's important to note that the maintenance and repair of your Subaru during the warranty period does need to be done by factory-authorized personnel like the technicians in our service department at Carter Subaru Ballard. This way, you not only get the confidence of knowing highly skilled expert technicians have taken care of your Subaru, you also get complete documentation in the Subaru system to ensure the warranty stays good until its expiration.

What Else Should You Know About the Subaru Factory Warranty?

With 97% of all Subaru models sold over the past decade still on the road and going strong today, it's no wonder that Subaru warranty work is rare. However, the manner in which any vehicle is maintained and driven will make a big difference in its reliability down the road. That's why it's important to take proper care of your Subaru from the day you drive it off the lot. Remember that failure to come in for scheduled maintenance can cause problems with the warranty if something happens. Since the warranty is essentially a guarantee that everything will continue working the way it was designed, it's important to understand that the warranty won't cover a vehicle that was used in a way beyond its original design. That means certain modifications and extreme driving can void the warranty.
