Every vehicle marketed by Subaru Ireland is covered by a five-year/160,000-kilometre warranty.

The cover comprises a 'bumper to bumper' warranty for three years/100,000 kilometres, whichever is sooner, plus a further two-year warranty (powertrain items only, excluding clutch), to a maximum of 160,000 kilometres.

All Subaru vehicles get a 12-year anti-perforation warranty, and Subaru Assist, the three-year roadside assistance package.

"The five-year warranty reaffirms Subaru's commitment to offer guaranteed quality, with confidence, to Irish customers," said Neville Matthews, Managing Director at Subaru Ireland.

"And the legendary Subaru build quality, coupled with this fully transferrable warranty, further enhances the vehicles' residual value."

Subaru is ranked first in the league table for car brands' electrical reliability according to the latest data released by Warranty Direct in the UK.

Electrical reliability is becoming increasingly important, as cars become more sophisticated and feature greater levels of advanced electronics.

It is the latest in a list of reliability accolades for Subaru cars, with the firm developing an enviable reputation for longevity and build integrity.
