Explore the 50th Anniversary Subaru Lineup With Our NJ Dealership

Back in January, our NJ dealership took a look at everything we knew about the 50th anniversary Subaru lineup. Now, these limited edition models have finally been unveiled and we’ve got to say: they were worth the hype!

Celebrating 50 years of Subaru here in the United States, these special edition vehicles are truly unlike anything else you’re likely to see from Subaru in your lifetime. If you’re eager to get a piece of Subaru history for yourself, then this is the chance to get behind the wheel of something special.

Standing Out in a Crowd

When Subaru unveiled these anniversary edition models at the Chicago Auto Show and gave the world it’s first look, the team at our Subaru showroom in NJ was understandable excited. After having read about them in Subaru’s press releases leading up to the event, we were understandably thrilled to get our first glimpse of them!

Each of the special edition 50th anniversary models is based around a high-level trim of its respective model, so you can bet these vehicles will provide plenty of attractive features and exceptional interior craftsmanship. What you’ll notice even before that, though, is an exclusive new exterior color: Heritage Blue. The exterior will also feature exclusive 50th Anniversary badging, as will the cabin.

As if this one-of-a-kind styling wasn’t already alluring enough, these models will also be highly limited in their production. The Crosstrek, Forester, Impreza, Legacy, and Outback anniversary editions will be limited to 1,050 units each; the anniversary editions of the WRX, STI, and BRZ will be limited to 1,050 units total.

If you’ve been considering sliding into a new Subaru, then this is the perfect opportunity to do so while claiming your piece of the brand’s history!

Know When It’s Time to Service Your Brakes

Subaru Brake Service

Hearing some funky noises when you stop at a red light? We at Subaru of Morristown in NJ are here to help you figure out what’s going on with your brakes. What exactly the problem is will depend on the specific noise you are hearing.

Squealing vs. Grinding

If your brakes are squealing, you’re likely driving on some worn down brake pads. The brake pad wear indicator rubs against the rotor and causes the squealing sound (sounds like a high-pitched whistle).

If your brakes are grinding, you should check them immediately. This indicates that your brake pads are worn down and you’re damaging your rotors. You don’t want to jeopardize your safety by driving this way for much longer!

If you already know that you’re not the DIY kind of gal or guy when it comes to cars, see why you should service with our NJ Subaru dealership. With professionally trained technicians looking at your car, we’ll determine what’s wrong and have your car ready to go in a jiffy. To the amateur mechanics out there: check out the list below! However, if you don’t know exactly what each step entails, it would be wise to bring your car in for service.

The Repair

  • BUY THE SERVICE MANUAL. This contains essential information and is not a suggestion.
  • Jack up the car and remove the wheel and tire
  • Remove the caliper
  • Check the rotors
  • Check the wheel bearings
  • Replace Wheel Bearings (if necessary)
  • Replace the brake pads
  • Put the assembly back together
  • Bleed the brake fluid
  • Replace the tire and wheel assembly, put the hubcap back on, and you’re all set!

It’s important to note that checking means more than looking. You must check the wheel bearings for pitting and/or scoring and the rotors for a specified minimum thickness measurement (using a micrometer).

The more specifics details involved in each step are essential to your safety. If you don’t know what all of the above steps require, schedule service at Subaru of Morristown or contact our service department at (866) 868-4009. We’ll have you on the road in no-time…your safety and satisfaction guaranteed.

Delaware Valley Provides a Perfect Route for NJ Subaru Drivers

The team at our NJ Subaru dealership knows how much our shoppers tend to love the outdoors. After all, the capability that Subaru is known for is a huge selling point for drivers looking to embrace their adventurous spirit.

Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel drive is certainly perfect when you want to leave the pavement behind, but you don’t always need to go off-road to get up close and personal with Mother Nature. New Jersey is home to a wealth of history and scenic views, and you can soak it all in along the Delaware Valley scenic drive.

Subaru off-roading

Covering 30 miles along Route 29, this scenic drive stretches from Frenchtown to Trenton and provides the perfect opportunity to hop into your favorite 2017 Subaru model and enjoy some of NJ’s finest views! It’s just far enough away for a change of pace on a day trip, and we think you’ll agree that it’s worth the trek.

Taking It all In

This stretch of road can be covered in less than an hour, but a variety of stops and attractions along the way can easily turn the route into a gorgeous day trip! Starting in Trenton, there’s plenty to do. Our state’s capital is home to attractions including the New Jersey State House and New Jersey State Museum, both of which offer great tours for some background on state history before embarking on your drive in earnest.

Once you’re on your way, Washington Crossing State Park is a worthwhile stop. Encompassing 1,400 acres with a wealth of history from Washington’s legendary crossing of the Delaware, the park offers a visitor’s center as well as plenty of hiking and biking trails for fresh air.

Moving along the route, you’ll have the opportunity to visit quaint towns like Lambertville and Stockton, which are known for their antique shops and Victorian-era construction. This stretch is perfect to take a break, do some shopping, and grab a bite to eat!

Toward the conclusion of the route, Frenchtown offers a great taste of Victorian-era architecture, as well. Whether you want to kick back and take it easy or explore the towpath, you’ll have plenty of options.

Staying Close to Home

Of course, there’s plenty to see and do right here in our backyard, too. Whether you’re visiting Jockey Hollow to explore Washington’s Revolutionary War-era headquarters or looking out for crittersildlife in the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, it’s easy to get outdoors and smell the fresh air when you’ve got a free afternoon.

From a leisurely day visiting the towns along the river to a weekend-long camping adventure, the Subaru lineup is perfect for your next expedition!
