Favorite Pet Accessories for Your Subaru

Your pets are an integral part of your daily life, which means that they may be coming along for the ride in your Subaru more often than not. As October is Subaru Loves Pets month, our Mendham area Subaru dealer is here to provide more information on the innovative accessories that can help your pooch ride safely and in style. 

    • Travel Food and Water Bowls — Snacks are key for any road trip, and why should your pet feel any differently? Innovative no-spill bowls allow for your pet to sip without fear of spillage in your Subaru, and collapsible silicone travel bowls are easy to clean and store when not in use. 
    • Compartment Separator — While you’d normally never turn down some affection from your furry counterparts when you’re driving, it can be safer for both you and your pet to stay separated. Particularly active pets can serve as distractions and impede your vision behind the wheel, so we recommend a compartment separator to keep your energized pup in the back while you get where you need to go.
  • Rear Cargo Tray — This innovative feature is helpful for any adventure you may be braving, especially if your pets are coming along. This tray fits into the floor in the back of your Subaru and is easily removed and cleaned. Your pet can have its water and food bowls in the back without you having to fear messes that can’t be cleaned. This cargo tray also means your pet can hop in and out even after taking to the great outdoors, as the tray can be rinsed of dirt, sand, or other debris with ease. 
    • All-Weather Flood Mats — These floor mats can be useful when you have your pet in the front or the backseat of the car. If you are making a pitstop for lunch or a bathroom break, you won’t have to worry about your pup’s muddy paws leaving tracks on your interior. These mats are easily removed and cleaned, letting you focus on the road ahead. 
  • Crash-Tested Auto Harness — For pets who prefer to ride in the backseat, our Subaru dealer near Mendham recommends a crash-tested auto harness. These products attach to the backseat seatbelt and can also be used as a walking harness when you are on the go. You’ll also want to make sure your travel harness/product has been crash-tested by accredited third-party technicians. >

Replacing Subaru Tires

Subaru tires for sale in New Jersey

All-wheel drive is a convenient feature that comes standard on every new Subaru vehicle on our car lot (other than the BRZ sports coupe). It gives you increased traction on the road, especially in wet or snowy conditions, and it’s an integral part of what makes a Subaru a Subaru.

AWD does make one thing more difficult, though: replacing tires. Because the drivetrain sends engine power to all four wheels, rather than just two, it’s important that all tires wear equally. Here’s why.

Replacing Tires on an All-Wheel Drive Subaru

The front tires will wear more quickly: On all-wheel drive cars, the front tires will often lose tread a bit faster than the back ones. To counter this, frequent tire rotations are a good idea.

Differences in tire size can confuse the car: If you replace just one tire, or just the front or back tires, they will be slightly larger than the old ones since they aren’t worn down yet. Powering different-sized tires can be an additional strain on your drivetrain, and it can also trick your car’s internal sensors into thinking the tires are slipping. That can cause the car to attempt to lock the tires or put your car into a different gear, which can make things dangerous when you’re on the go.

Subaru Tire Replacement and Rotation

To avoid unnecessary difficulties, it’s vital to get your Subaru’s tires rotated frequently. If it has been a while since your last rotation, schedule tire rotation service with us soon. And, in the unfortunate situation where you end up with a flat tire, you may have to consider replacing all four to ensure safety.


Fortunately, at Subaru of Morristown, New Jersey drivers will find a great selection of new Subaru tires for sale at great prices.

Does My Starter Need to Be Replaced?

Subaru parts for sale near Mendham

Your car isn’t going anywhere if it can’t start up. Your Subaru’s starter motor is one of a number of components that help get the engine running when you first turn the key. 

Ignition problems are often blamed on the starter (because of the name), but they typically occur elsewhere in the process. Here’s how you can help narrow things down to determine if your starter needs to be replaced.

If you turn the key and nothing happens this typically indicates something electrical. No lights come on, Either your battery is drained–a simple fix that can usually be addressed with a jump start–or another issue in the electrical half of the ignition chain. Those can be tricky to diagnose, but in the very least you can knock “starter motor” off the list.

If you hear a buzzing sound and again, nothing happens, this could mean that the electricity is making it to the starter but failing to get it moving–often, that’s because there isn’t enough power traveling to the starter motor, which is a battery or electrical issue.

If you hear a single loud clicking sound or a grinding noise, these can both indicate a starter motor issue. The clicking can be the result of a bad starter motor and the grinding can indicate that elements within the starter motor are loose.

Ultimately, ignition problems are not always easy to pinpoint. But if you’re having a hard time getting your Subaru started up, it’s important to pay close attention to warning signs like these. That way, when you bring it to our Mendham area Subaru service center, you can give a detailed account of the issue–which makes it much easier for our team to get going on the solution.


Eliminating basics, like a drained battery, can go a long way to helping us determine the issue, plus it’ll save you money. But if you’re having major issues that you can’t find on your own, don’t hesitate to schedule service with us today!

What Does Subaru EyeSight Offer?

which Subaru models have EyeSight

It isn’t just the entertainment system in your car that has gotten smarter: New vehicles, and new Subarus in particular, are made with a whole host of intelligent tech tools meant to keep you safe on the Mendham area roadways.

Subaru’s suite of driver assistance tools is called Subaru EyeSight, and it’s clever, powerful, and available on most of the new Subaru models for sale here at Subaru of Morristown.

What Does Subaru EyeSight Offer?

Subaru EyeSight uses a series of cameras and sensors to identify road obstacles and markings to keep you alert and safe on your way. Here are the main tools available in vehicles equipped with Subaru EyeSight:

Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning

Subaru EyeSight can detect road markings, allowing it to determine whether you’re car is maintaining its lane. If the car begins to wander outside of its intended lane without a turn signal, or if the car begins to sway, Lane Keep Assist will alert you with visual and audible warnings. 

EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control takes the convenience of cruise control and makes it even better. You set your speed and the car will maintain that pace–up until it encounters a vehicle ahead of it, at which point it will slow down and maintain a safe following distance. If the car ahead speeds up, your car will return to its set speed. It’s useful for both highway driving and stop-and-go traffic, saving your leg from driving fatigue. 

Pre-Collision Braking

If EyeSight recognizes an impending collision in front of the vehicle and the driver has not applied the brakes with enough force to stop, Pre-Collision Braking will kick in to help drivers avoid or reduce the impact with alerts and apply full braking power for them.

Pre-Collision Throttle Management

Pre-collision Throttle Management can help avoid collisions or reduce damages by halting the throttle when it detects an obstacle in front of the vehicle while the driver continues to accelerate. It can prevent against distracted driving collisions, or parking lot and garage mishaps ‘Drive’ is accidentally selected when you really want ‘Reverse.’ 

Subaru Vehicles Equipped with EyeSight

This great driver assistance technology is standard on most of the models in the current Subaru lineup: the Impreza, Crosstrek, WRX, Forester, Outback, Legacy, and Ascent. Check out our great selection of new Subaru models at Subaru of Morristown, and visit us to test drive one for yourself today!
