Subaru axes aftercare program (UK)
Subaru Everything Taken Care of (ETCo)
Came bundled with new car
Subaru has decided to stop offering its aftercare program for new cars in the UK.
It was offered for free and included a free wash and vacuum every three years, and most importantly, free dent and alloy wheel repair within that period. Replacing the ETC program is a 5-year / 100,000-mile warranty for all models in the lineup, except the WRX STi which comes with only a 3-year / 60,000-mile warranty.
It is not known at the moment whether those who purchased a new Subaru before the program was axed will still be able to benefit from it. This program also guaranteed a free key replacement, winter tire storage, along with free pick-up and return during servicing. The Japanese company estimated this program to be worth about 7,000 GBP (8,628 EUR).
