Subaru Courtesy Vehicle

When it comes to the used vehicle market, drivers around Hernando and Dunnellon agree that there is a lot of trepidation and uncertainty that isn't easy to deal with. At Ocala Subaru, we are constantly looking for ways to improve the used car buying experience, and while we handpick every pre-owned model in our dealership, sometimes drivers want more assurances in what they're buying.

Hence, we've turned to our service loaner vehicles for a new alternative. These vehicles have been carefully monitored since they arrived as new models at our dealership, which should empower any driver with the confidence they need to invest in a pre-owned vehicle.

What is a Service Loaner Vehicle?

The first thing a lot of Inverness and Silver Springs drivers want to know is what a service loaner vehicle is. Typically, we think of buying vehicles in terms of new, used, or certified pre-owned, and this is, in many ways, a new category altogether. Service loaner vehicles are cars and SUVs we lend out to customers when they bring their vehicle in for service, and it needs to be in the shop for an extended period.

These vehicles prevent our customers from having to go without transportation, and they are returned upon completion of our work. From there, we give them an inspection and service them so that they are ready for the next customer.

Why Buy a Former Service Loaner Vehicle?

Service loaner vehicles near East Lake Weir are a smart purchase for a wide variety of reasons. For one thing, they are technically a used vehicle, so they've already taken their biggest hit on depreciation like any other standard pre-owned vehicle. Hence, their value per dollar is already significantly higher.

Besides, service loaner vehicles typically have a lot fewer miles since they are normally driven for only a few days at a time on occasion. Fewer miles means less wear and tear on the engine, which means you'll be getting a vehicle that's got plenty of years left on its lifespan.

The other advantage you'll have is that every service loaner vehicle has been well cared for by a factory-certified technician. Every time we get a service loaner back from a customer, they undergo a thorough inspection and cleaning. We repair anything that doesn't meet our standards with genuine OEM parts, meaning you have a vehicle that's guaranteed to run like new.

A Like-New Vehicle That's Ready for You

Service loaner vehicles have stricter standards than typical used vehicles. Their roles are strictly limited to being lent out to customers for service appointments, or in some cases, serve as demo cars on our show floor. Either way, their exposure to the elements, as well as the unpredictable nature of other drivers, has been minimized. With low mileage on the odometer and frequent service appointments from our factory-certified technicians, these vehicles are in a like-new condition that is almost impossible to discern from actual new models.

Our service loaner vehicles come from the Subaru brand as you might expect. That means drivers will have access to Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive right away alongside some of the most long-lasting vehicles on the road today. Choose from models such as the Subaru Ascent, Crosstrek, and Forester.
