Subaru Guaranteed Trade-In Program


Know your Subaru always has a hassle-free great trade-in value.

Subaru created the Guaranteed Trade-In Program (GTP) because they believe in the quality of their vehicles and feel that you should, too.

The Subaru GTP Value is an offer - only for Subaru owners - that guarantees the minimum trade-in amount owners will receive for their qualified Subaru vehicle when a new later model year Subaru vehicle is purchased.* The GTP Value is updated monthly and is available for 6 years from the original vehicle warranty start date beginning with 2004 model year vehicles.

No hassle. No questions asked. Visit us today to have your vehicle evaluated and take advantage of this incredible program.

*Guaranteed Trade-In Program Value may be combined with other offers unless specifically excluded. Customer must take delivery of a new previously untitled later model year Subaru vehicle from a participating dealer inventory by the value expiration date. The new Subaru vehicle must be at least one model year newer than the trade-in vehicle. Only one trade-in offer per new Subaru vehicle purchased. Current GTP Values are available for 2004-2011 Subaru model years. Trade-in values are updated monthly. The trade-in value is what owners can expect to receive from a dealership for a trade-in vehicle with standard manufacturer's equipment and a good condition rating. Vehicle values are based on the vehicle conforming to stated condition and mileage criteria found in the "Rules and Eligibility" section.

Did you know we will buy your vehicle, even if you don't buy one from us?


Just call Kevin Townsend or Charlie Skovgaard at Stanley Subaru at (800)-439-8989, or complete the form below. We buy all makes to stock our used car department. We will pay off your loan and give you the leftover cash. We'll even give you a ride home!

What is "Current Market Value" and how do you determine it?

Current Market Value is the actual wholesale value of the vehicle---the amount the top bidder at an auction would pay for it. After you select which Stanley Subaru vehicle you would want to own, we ask you some questions about your vehicle. Then we inspect your vehicle's mechanical and cosmetic condition, optional equipment, color, service history, resale potential, and other factors.

How do you ensure the Current Market Value is accurate?

Depending on the situation, we use a combination of the following:

  • We consult dealer-only, subscription-based auction databases.

  • We consult the bidding at internet auctions where we can buy vehicles similar to yours.

  • We refer to our prior experiences retailing similar vehicles to yours.

  • We call other dealers and wholesalers who specialize in certain vehicles and therefore will pay top dollar.



Why does your Current Market Value differ from values I found on consumer websites?

With consumer pricing websites, at best you get a ballpark. At worst, they can give an air of authority to values that are not grounded in reality. Consumer sites use algorithms to depreciate the original price of the car when new. However, there can be a big difference between a "depreciation prediction" and Current Market Value.



What are some examples of these errors?

To see for yourself, add 200,000 miles to the mileage of your trade. This would diminish the actual value of the vehicle to almost zero. However, internet sites typically deduct only a thousand or two. Other errors occur on vehicles with terrible repair records, such as Land Rovers, because the computer doesn't deduct enough value for their poor reputation for reliability. Other errors occur when the condition is rated improperly---not surprisingly, most consumers tend to see their used vehicles in a much more flattering light than they will be seen by the ultimate purchaser.



Why is there such a big difference between trade in value and retail value?

Depending on the vehicle, this difference is usually $3,000 to $4,000. That sounds like a big margin. But after you deduct reconditioning expenses (they average almost $2,000 per car), advertising expenses (hey, you found us somehow, didn't you?), facility expenses (you think your home mortgage is expensive, imagine eleven acres of prime commercial real estate), personnel expenses (we need money to buy all those polyester suits and pinky rings), and we don't always get "retail value" (cars depreciate and if we don't sell them quickly then we need to reduce the price.)
