I bought my 2011 OB almost a year and a half ago. Back then the Guaranteed Trade-In Program listed the maximum mileage criteria as 15,000 miles for a 2011 and that's how it's still listed. Don't they ever increase the limit? I was expecting a change as of 1/1/13 but it's still the same:

Model Year 2010: 30,000 miles
Model Year 2011: 15,000 miles
Model Year 2012: 15,000 miles

They still list the 2010 as 30,000 miles but most of them have been in use for three years. I guess they are only interested in "Garage Queens".

But I notice they can manage to constantly update my declining trade-in value.

Did they use that trade program prior to 2010? maybe they just wanted to start big and now they get all they need with the lower cutoff.

The Guaranteed Trade-In Program Value is based on the following maximum allowable total vehicle mileage at the time of actual trade-in:
Model Year 2005: 90,000 miles
Model Year 2006: 90,000 miles
Model Year 2007: 75,000 miles
Model Year 2008: 60,000 miles
Model Year 2009: 45,000 miles
Model Year 2010: 30,000 miles
Model Year 2011: 15,000 miles
Model Year 2012: 15,000 miles
The maximum allowable total vehicle mileage criteria will be updated monthly and posted on subaru.com/gtp.

That's crazy! So if you bought a 2011 in Aug of 2010 like I did, I need to have 15K or less in 2 plus years? That's crazy! I am at 27k+ in 2.5 yrs now. Not bad as another poster said, they want garage queens. So i would have to drive less than 7K a year to qualify. :rolleyes::mad:

Glad this program was NOT my main decision on buying a Subaru.

I just went through the GTP where I traded a 2011 Outback Limited 2.5 with 20k miles for a new 2013 Outback Limited 2.5.

Point is that you may still qualify for the program, you just get hit with a overage rate per mile~ ¢20 or something like that. It's just something else to negotiate in the deal.

Hmmmm... wonder why my 2007 Legacy with 63K miles doesn't qualify for GTP.

The post above is just a cut and paste from the Subaru website. This is not what I have seen the past couple of years that I have been monitoring the site. They have been updating maximum mileage once a year around April. The program has it's sweet spots. Currently the 2012 mileage limit is at 15k, as is a 2011. A 2010 is at 30k. They always keep the latest 2 model years at 15k for both. Right now a 2011 is at the biggest disadvantage. The sweet spot for a 2011 will come around April when it jumps up to 30k.
The GTP worked for me. I just traded a 2010 for a 2013 this past summer, just after it jumped up to 30K. Just one day before the update my 2010 OB was worth 3000. less according to the GTP table and using .20/mile overage. Dealer was about $1000 less on trade in value than the GTP price. Once I pulled out the GTP paperwork he said no problem. Normal wear and tear didn't seem to be a concern. Even a bubble on one sidewall tire and a bent rim both of which he might or might not have noticed. If you are over the mileage it's .20 per mile.
