2018 Guaranteed Trade-in request

Hoping that someone with a similar car to mine might be willing to post or PM their current guaranteed trade value. Mine is a 2018 3.6R limited, with basically every option that I'm aware of. Sticker was $38,800. Car has roughly 10,600 miles on it. I'm only interested in GTV on 2018 similar cars, as I'm trying to see how these head unit issues are affecting resale, vs. what Subaru guarantees for trade-in. My car isn't eligible for GTV until April, which is why I'm asking. We're basically ready to bail on the car because of the ongoing issues, but as I was getting offers from the online car buying services I've been borderline shocked to see how low they are. Mostly in the $26K - $27K range, which is way lower than I expected and very atypical of Subaru I thought.

The Guaranteed Trade-In Program Value for your 2018 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited with up to 15,000 miles is:
$30,900^


There you go, my sticker was about the same, loaded 3.6R limited with PP #2
Now with crazy discounts lately this is almost price of brand new with 0 miles. Problem with GTP is that you gotta buy another Subaru. And what are your options? Ascent? Under-powered new Forester?

Mine is $32,075. Almost tempting as I only paid $35,000.

For the extra cost, the Touring isn't worth all that much more. Which is too bad since that's what I have.

I'll be checking the prices when April rolls around and be curious to see what another 3 months do to the price.

Probably not much, the price will vary +/- $500. However, mileage requirement will stay the same, so if you get over 15k miles, trade in value will be adjusted for miles over that.

Just wondering when the 15K mileage requirement will be adjusted - after the first year of ownership? I have a 2018 with 20K, owned for about a year and a half. When will the GTP be valid for say, 25K?

It goes by model year and is unaffected by your purchase date. Numbers are updated monthly, and there is a maximum mileage, which, if exceeded, may require an "adjustment" of 0.20/mile for miles over this maximum. Since a 2018 trade-in is currently listed at 15k miles max, your adjustment would be $1000 - and at your rate of accumulation, you might always be in the adjustment category as their table adjustments won't outrun your accumulation.

Thank you for the information. We purchased the car pre-owned with 17K miles on it in August for a decent discount. My wife only puts about 5K on her cars each year, so there is a chance we will catch up. Not looking to really trade, but I do like the Ascent (she does not).

I'm in the same boat and thinking of leaving Subaru for good. I'll say though the glitches with the infotainment system probably won't affect resale value, as dealerships will resell the vehicle sooner or later. And I'm sure if an interested buyer who actually knew about the infotainment issues said something, the sales person would probably plead ignorant.
