Manufacturer Buyback Vehicles Information at Nate Wade Subaru in Salt Lake City, UT
Learn how a manufacturer repurchase works for you at Nate Wade Subaru

On rare occasions, a Subaru vehicle will have some problems during its first year of use. When that happens, Subaru of America will buy that vehicle back from the customer, and perform a thorough inspection. After meticulous repairs of any problems, Subaru of America will give the vehicle only to an authorized Subaru dealer. At Nate Wade Subaru, we're proud to offer these vehicles as Manufacturer Repurchase Vehicles.

Choosing a Manufacturer Repurchase Vehicle is an excellent decision, because you'll save thousands of dollars compared to a brand new vehicle of the same model and trim level. A Manufacturer Repurchase Vehicle comes with a complete dealer inspection, a full report of the vehicle's maintenance history, and the full new car warranty.

In addition, you'll have the peace of mind of knowing that 97% of Subaru vehicles sold in the past 10 years are still on the road today. That's more than any other manufacturer. Read on to learn why a Subaru Manufacturer Repurchase Vehicle may be right for you.

What Is a "Lemon"? Why Should I Buy One?

The Utah New Motor Vehicle Warranties Act requires that if a new vehicle needs to be brought in for the same service four or more times in its first year, or spends more than 30 days in the shop during its first year, that vehicle must be labeled a "lemon". Under state law, the dealer must either immediately replace a lemon, or provide a cash refund, minus the prorated fee for the mileage on the vehicle.

At that time, Subaru of America buys the vehicle back from the customer. Once the cause of the problem has been identified and rectified, the car must then be labeled as "branded", which denotes that the vehicle was bought back by the manufacturer. At Nate Wade Subaru, we'll tell you that the vehicle is branded, exactly what the original customer's complaint was, and what steps were taken to fix it. In addition to that, a vehicle history report such as CARFAX or AutoCheck will also show that the vehicle was bought back.

Because a buyback vehicle is covered by an original warranty, any service issues will be addressed at no cost to you! During its first few years in your possession, a Manufacturer Repurchase Vehicle will depreciate more quickly than a new vehicle, and you might find it more difficult to resell with the "branded" title on it. However, if you're looking for a car with a great track record of longevity, Subaru is the car for you! Subaru of America sells over half a million cars every year, and only a few hundred are bought back during that timeframe. And you'll save money from the original sticker price; typically about $5,000 less than a brand new car, and about $2,000 from a comparable used car that hasn't been repurchased.

You will find that other dealerships won't offer Manufacturer Repurchase Vehicles. Nate Wade Subaru, however, is confident in the quality of our Subaru vehicles, and the skills of our Subaru factory trained dealership technicians. And of course, we want to offer you these rare savings. Talk to one of our sales associates today, and take advantage of these great deals!
