New Year, New Me… New Subaru?

As the calendar turns into a new year, it’s an excellent time to review where you are and where you want to be in 2023. We hope that the essential things in your life -- family, friends, work, community -- are all going well and that the future looks bright for all aspects of your life.


How’s your Subaru? At the risk of being blunt, have we seen you much in 2022, or have you been driving less and trying to reduce service stops? Do you have plans to visit us much in 2023? Have you been keeping up with Subaru’s recommended scheduled maintenance? What upcoming repairs do you need to be concerned with?


If you’ve maintained proper preventive maintenance, you’ll have a rough idea of where your Subaru is and what it needs next. You’ll have a sense of how long your Subaru will last and are taking an active part in the care and maintenance of your Subaru. Our inspection can give you a taste of this on every visit. But are you already eyeing the next generation of Subarus?


If you think this is the year to get a new Subaru, we’re pleased to report that the 2023 crop has some great vehicles to consider. If you’ve flirted with the idea of moving forward to an EV, Car and Driver reports that the 2023 Solterra offers a moderate range but incredible all-wheel drive. 


If you are considering a new car this year. always remember the phrase, “It’s cheaper to keep her.” Your Subaru can last and last if you keep up with it. As excited as the new cars make us, your Subaru could have a long, happy destiny with you if you bring it to a qualified mechanic for regularly scheduled maintenance. 

Don’t surrender a car as wonderful as a Subaru to the ravages of time. Please make an appointment with us for anything your Subaru needs. And remember to “Like” our Facebook page for the latest news!
