August is Subaru Loves Learning Month

August is Subaru Loves Learning Month

By | Subaru News | No Comments

August is Subaru Loves Learning Month! As students and parents all around the country gear up for the back to school season, Subaru is focusing on giving back to education. Teaming up with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the “Subaru Loves Learning” initiative will provide award-winning science books and much-needed school supplies to more than 120,000 AAAS’s members and 250 affiliated members. According to AAAS, only 36% of high school students are prepared for college level science even though 80% of the fastest growing jobs in the U.S. are in science fields. 

“At Subaru, we know the deepest learning happens when students have the tools they need to inspire new ways of thinking and seeing the world,” said Alan Bethke, senior vice president of marketing at Subaru of America. “We believe education is a fundamental right and are dedicated to supporting organizations, like AAAS, that make learning as accessible as possible.”
 
To date, more 502 Subaru retailers like Wilde Subaru across the country have helped distribute and donate 187,000 books nationwide to a variety of schools. Throughout August, consumers who purchase a Subaru will get the opportunity to donate a book in their name and write an inspiration note of encouragement on a bookmark that will be placed inside the book. Subaru retailers, like us, will be collecting school supplies like pencils, erasers, notebooks, backpacks and more.

Subaru Eyesight Reduces Pedestrian Collisions

By | Subaru News | No Comments

Subaru Eyesight Reduces Pedestrian Collisions! According to the Highway Loss Data Institute, current generation Subaru EyeSight reduces pedestrian-related insurance claims by 41% compared to vehicles without the front crash-prevention system. Currently EyeSight includes Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management; Adaptive Cruise Control; Lane Departure and Sway Warning; and Lane Keep Assist. For 2019, EyeSight will be standard equipment on the new 3-row Subaru Ascent SUV, Outback SUV, Legacy, and Forester SUV. 

“The data clearly show that EyeSight is eliminating many crashes, including pedestrian crashes,” says HLDI Senior Vice President Matt Moore. “Subaru has taken a good system and made it even better, it’s great to see the company moving quickly to deploy the technology through its fleet.”
 
This is an improvement over the first generation EyeSight system which showed a 33% reduction in pedestrian-related insurance claims. 

“We are gratified, but not surprised, that HLDI data show Subaru EyeSight can prevent crashes, including with pedestrians,” said Subaru of America President and CEO Thomas J. Doll. “Safety is paramount to Subaru, and each year we continue to improve and innovate the safety features and technology in our vehicles for our customers. Our safety technology has been a key driver behind our steady sales growth, highlighted by 77 months of consecutive month-over-month increases.”

The Subaru Impreza is a Pretty Cool Car!

By | Subaru News | No Comments

The Subaru Impreza is a Pretty Cool Car! Recently Kelley Blue Book released their list of “10 Coolest New Cars Under $20,000.” The experts at KBB chose models based the awards on comfort, style, and driving excitement that are simultaneously affordable. These qualities plus its tech features, versatility, and fun nature made the 2018 Subaru Impreza a no-brainer choice for the Kelley Blue Book team.

So what exactly did the experts have to say about the model? “Already earning extra credit for its standard all-wheel drive, a recent redesign gives the Impreza sedan and hatchback sharper looks, more refinement and a larger palette of tech and convenience features, all while retaining the strong value proposition and reliability for which Subaru is known.”

The standard Impreza offers a 1.6- liter gasoline boxer derivation offering 115 hp with a 2.0-liter gasoline boxer derivation offering 156 hp. Both models feature Subaru’s signature Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and lineartronic CVT automatic transmission.

Why you should buy Subaru CPO

Why you should buy Subaru CPO

By | Subaru News | No Comments

Why you should buy Subaru CPO! Recently Autotrader released their list of “10-Best Non-luxury CPO Programs for 2018”  and Honda made the list. Autotrader picked its choices based on criteria that includes powertrain warranty length (with a minimum of six years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the original sale date), bumper-to-bumper warranty length, deductible amount and transferability to future owners.

So what did they have to say about Subaru? Autotrader wrote, “Subaru’s certified pre-owned warranty boasts strong powertrain warranty coverage, as it offers seven years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the original sale date — a longer term than Chevrolet or GMC, and equal to some of the other top brands on our list. Unfortunately, Subaru’s CPO program doesn’t offer any additional bumper-to-bumper coverage beyond the original 3-year or 36,000-mile factory warranty, while most other brands do. Still, the extensive powertrain coverage is enough to earn Subaru’s CPO program a spot on our list — especially when you also consider that the program touts no deductible and full transferability to subsequent owners (though transferring the CPO warranty requires paying a $75 fee).”

Every Certified Pre-Owned Subaru gets a 152-point safety inspection, where anything that doesn’t meet our high standards is repaired or replaced. From brake pads to tire tread depth, our inspections are extensive and performed by genuine Subaru technicians. These reports are made available for your review. So you can be confident that your Subaru is fully checked, factory-covered and ready for new adventures. Wondering what CPO vehicles we have available? Check them out here. For more Subaru News, follow Wilde Subaru on Twitter or Like us on Facebook.
