Everything's like new - except the price.
Genuine Subaru Remanufactured Parts meet original specifications, so they fit and perform like new. They undergo the same quality tests as new parts, so they're backed by the same Genuine Subaru Parts Limited Warranty* Their only real difference is one that you'll probably prefer: the value they provide when it's time for repairs. Genuine Subaru Remanufactured Parts cost less because instead of raw materials, they are manufactured from an existing "core" part at a substantial savings.
* See Carlsen Subaru for complete warranty details.
With a rebuilt part, only the broken or unusable components are replaced, usually without a complete disassembly and inspection. The part is repaired just enough to meet the rebuilder's requirements - not the original manufacturer's.
With a Genuine Subaru Remanufactured Part, the process begins with a "core" - the actual failed or worn-out part. The core is fully disassembled, and all components are serviced or replaced. As the core is reassembled, it must pass the same tests as a new Subaru part at every step. Once fully assembled, the remanufactured part must meet the same tolerances and specifications as brand new Genuine Subaru Parts.
