Check Out Your A/C Now!

Photo by Daniel Baird on Unsplash As the Spring begins to turn to summer, it’s a good time to consider if your Subaru’s air conditioning is working properly. Is it?   The Air Conditioning is not considered by many to be that important to the operation of your vehicle, because almost all Subarus run their Air Conditioning separate from their coolant system. But don't forget that the ac works with the defrost to keep the windows clear from steaming up. As Spring turns to Summer, this is the right time to act, before others need to-- especially during a period of supply chain woes.   To many, when money’s tight, it’s more of an inconvenience than a serious problem.

Helping Out When You Witness an Accident

Helping Out When You Witness an Accident

Photo by SD-Pictures on Pixabay Accident Will Happen Being safe on the road is hard enough when everything goes right. One of the biggest slow-down factors in an accident isn’t the obstructions on the road, which are usually cleared quickly; it’s the rubberneckers who want to see what happened and slow down to have a clear view.    While you don’t want to be a rubbernecker, you may have something valuable to offer the accident participants if you had a clear view of events, or have a camera that caught the event clearly. And there might be help that you can offer. If you have approved medical training, you might possibly help save a life. When the Worst Happens When the worst happens, it’s important to not let your own curiosity, interest, and opinions get in the way of helping people out of a bad situation.    Here are some protocols to fol ... read more

Spring Cleaning and your Subaru

Spring Cleaning and your Subaru

Photo by nick Kaufman on Unsplash Spring Cleaning time is here! March is here, and spring is on the way! It’s a good time for getting all of your ducks in a row. Taxes need to be calculated before April comes around. Also, it’s time for the house to be cleaned and de-cluttered -- that yearly ritual we call Spring Cleaning.   Now that the time has come for some spring cleaning, your Subbie would appreciate the same kind of attention! Giving it some love helps you as a driver– studies show that drivers are more careful with cars that they go through the trouble to clean. (Something to consider if you have a young driver in the home who borrows the car, and takes a few unnecessary risks!)   Here’s ... read more

What the 2022 Subarus are All About

What the 2022 Subarus are All About

Photo by Jakob Rosen on Unsplash   Have you seen the new Subarus? When the 2022s arrived, were you excited to see what new features they possess? Do you make plans to trade your Subaru in for a newer model each year?   We’d be astonished to hear anyone say Yes to those questions. In our experience, Subaru lovers tend to stick with their own model for a long time. Love is a feature that comes built into every Subaru, and loyalty seems to be a feature built into every Subie.    Because of their loyalty, there isn’t much trading up for new vehicles among Subaru lovers. They tend to add another Subaru later, only letting go of the one they began with when they can no longer justify the expense of a second ... read more
