8 steps to properly certify a used vehicle under Subaru's enhanced CPO program.

2. Dealers must then run a Carfax report on the vehicle to further determine eligibility. Vehicles that have title problems like flood, true mileage unknown, salvage, rebuilt, total loss, etc. will not be eligible. Only Carfax reports will be accepted in the Subaru Certified Pre-Owned process.

152 point inspection. The process is very easy and is simply "pass or
fail". If any item fails, they will need to be corrected to be
certified. Any qualified Subaru technician can complete the
