Top Things To Know About A Pre-Owned Impreza | Subaru

So, you’re buying a second-hand car, but it’s not any old average car; it’s a Subaru Impreza. Kudos to you, smart shopper. 

So, you’ve come here hoping to find some more information on what you can expect when purchasing a pre-owned Subaru Impreza – well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got all the juicy details and information that will help you feel more at ease when taking that step to purchasing a second-hand Subaru car. 

There’s much to love about the Subaru Impreza, even if she has a bit more mileage on the clock. Let’s unpack the nitty gritty, here.


How a Pre-owned Subaru Impreza Can Be the Car for You

When you know, you know. All it takes is one test drive to convince you that this is the car you will be riding home in. It’s important to know what you’re looking for in a car. Guaranteed, you want a reliable car that isn’t prone to breaking down or constant maintenance to keep it running. You want it to still be semi-new and modern, and of course, stylish. While looks can play a big part in your decision, the performance and durability of a car are essential and should be your core focus. The second-hand Subaru Impreza raises the bar in terms of driving performance and safety, making it the best choice for someone who wants both style and functionality. With a combination of Subaru’s iconic symmetrical all-wheel drive system, the BOXER engine and active torque vectoring, you’re getting the best of Subaru for less.


How Regular Maintenance Can Stretch a Pre-Owned Subaru Impreza’s Life

The truth is that second-hand cars have undergone a lot of depreciation, and many motorists cannot afford to purchase brand new. When you buy a pre-owned vehicle, understand that it will need regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly. All of our available and ready-to-sell pre-owned Subaru Impreza cars have been certified by Subaru on quality and performance, so rest assured that you’re getting a quality used car with no compromise whatsoever on our Confidence in Motion promise. Top tip on maintenance: always keep track of when your pre-loved vehicle reaches a certain km or when last you changed your oil; this will help you book your next service at Subaru or your mechanic.


The Benefits of Owning a Pre-Owned Impreza vs a New Subaru Impreza

There’s no such thing as settling for less when it comes to Subaru. All of our new and pre-owned vehicles are Subaru certified and undergo many tests to ensure optimal performance and safety for our customers. Here are some benefits of owning a pre-loved Subaru Impreza versus a new one.

The Difference Between a Certified Pre-Owned Subaru Impreza vs a Normal Used Impreza

Certified pre-owned Subaru Impreza:
