Answers to your Frequently Asked Questions:
What does an Added Security extended service contract cover?
You may choose from two different levels of coverage (see bottom of page for pricing information):
Classic Plans cover nearly 1000 parts in all major component areas, including engine, transmission, drive trains, front suspension, steering, brakes, electrical, cooling and fuel systems and air conditioning. Also provides towing and rental car reimbursement for covered repairs.
Gold Plus plans include all Classic plan coverage plus hundreds more parts. In fact, they provide essentially the same "bumper-to-bumper" coverage as the basic factory warranty. Only a few maintenance items and body parts are not covered. The Gold Plus plan also reimburses for lodging and meals when a breakdown interrupts your out-of-town travel, plus: 24-hour emergency roadside assistance*, $100 allowance for "Sign & Drive" dispatched towing, jump start, tire change, gasoline delivery, locksmith service, computerized trip routing, dealer locator service, travel assistance, lodging, meal reimbursement and road hazard tire protection.
The Subaru Maintenance Plan
- Enables you to lock in the cost of the scheduled maintenance required to keep your basic factory warranty in force and your car in tip-top running condition.
- Provides service by factory-trained technicians.
- Guarantees the use of genuine Subaru parts.
- Allows your car to be serviced at a quality Subaru dealer at a competitive price.
- As a special incentive, each maintenance plan comes with a $500 coupon towards the purchase of your next new Subaru (see your dealer for details).
Again, you can choose the plan best for you:
- 2 or 3 years
- 24,000, 30,000, 36,000 or 45,000 miles
- Mileage intervals: 3,750 or 7,500 - or Severe 3,750
These plans are especially attractive if you lease your Subaru. You can include the cost in your lease payment. Then with the maintenance plan, your only auto expense may be at the gas pump! And the roadside assistance package is included at no extra cost.

What other benefits do Added Security contracts include?
Enhance the resale value of your car. Any remaining coverage can be transferred to another private owner. Or you can cancel your coverage and apply for a pro rate refund.
If you choose a plan with a deductible, you will pay it only once for each repair visit. Some other plans charge a deductible for each different component repaired during the same visit.
Added Security protects your investment and provides an inflation hedge on future repairs. As with other goods and services, the cost of parts and labor will increase over time. With Added Security, you never have to worry about these price increases while your coverage is in effect.
What cars are eligible for Added Security?
Added Security was created exclusively for Subaru cars. Any Subaru model that is still covered under Subaru of America's basic warranty is eligible for Added Security, unless it is used commercially or is equipped with a snowplow.
How long does the service contract coverage last?
You can select the length of coverage that best suits your needs. You have a choice between nine different plan terms. You can even choose a plan that covers your Subaru until it is seven years old or has accumulated 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The plan term is calculated from the start of the factory warranty and at zero miles.
Where should I go to have covered repairs performed?
Added Security is honored throughout the United States and Canada at nearly 600 authorized Subaru dealers, where you can be sure to get genuine Subaru replacement parts installed by factory trained technicians. However, in emergency situations, you may call our toll-free number for assistance and approval to have the repairs done by an authorized repair facility.
How are my claims paid if I have a breakdown?
Added Security will pay the cost of a covered repair directly to any Subaru dealer. This includes parts and labor. Subaru is very generous with our claims authorizations and our dealers want to do repairs covered by Added Security. Other extended service agreement companies reimburse at lower rates and make the claims process challenging for dealers. Your dealer handles Added Security claims the same way they handle warranty claims making us easy to do business with, and as a result, dealers welcome Added Security repairs!
Will I have to pay a deductible?
No! You can choose a plan with a zero deductible. However, plans are available with a $50 or $100 deductible. It's up to you.
Why is Added Security the best value?
There are several reasons why selecting the Subaru-backed extended service contract will always be the best value. Added Security is custom-designed by Subaru for your Subaru vehicle. You will not be paying for coverage you don't need. The pricing structure of an Added Security plan doesn't have to factor in the repair costs of the average vehicle. We cover only Subaru cars.
