Subaru Love Promise Gives Madison Area Shoppers a Reason to Smile

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times: Subaru is more than just an automaker! In addition to manufacturing some of the toughest vehicles around, the brand shows off its softer side with the Subaru Love Promise.

Here at our Madison area Subaru dealership, we’re proud to be affiliated with a company that is unflinchingly dedicated to giving back. When the goal is to give back to the community whenever possible, it’s easy to get into the spirit.

So, how does the Subaru Love Promise work? It’s simple!

A Cycle of Giving Back

When you buy a 2017 Subaru vehicle at our Madison area dealership, you can feel good knowing that Subaru consistently embraces the Subaru Love Promise by giving back to a range of non-profit causes. No matter what causes are important to you personally, there’s sure to be an organization that means something to you!

Subaru Love Promise

Many of the causes that Subaru of America supports fall into a handful of categories. These include healthcare, food banks, education, environmental protection, and animal welfare. Whether it’s by protecting the world around us or by caring for those in need, the goal of the Subaru Love Promise is to create a positive impact.

Over the past two decades, the automaker has done exactly that. Subaru of America and its individual retailers have donated over $93 million and logged over 34,000 volunteer hours over the past 20 years. Of course, the goal is to continue building on that foundation to give back in even bigger ways moving forward!

Subaru Maintenance Tips for Madison Area Drivers

Madison area Subaru Service Center

From time to time, your vehicle needs a bit of tender love and care to be running to the best of its ability. That’s why your Madison area Subaru Service Center recommends checking certain fluids in your car in order to maintain your vehicle’s health. Checking the level of these fluids is not only easy, but takes only a few minutes! The most important fluids every Subaru owner should check is coolant level and brake fluid.

It is a frightening thought driving a car without working brakes. At Subaru of Morristown, we strongly emphasize how important it is to check your brake fluid level monthly. Running your vehicle on low brake fluid can result in the brake pads eventually becoming worn, requiring expensive replacements. While we do not recommend you add brake fluid to your Subaru, you can keep an eye on the level. Make sure you are parked on a level service and lift the hood of your car. Find the brake reservoir and locate the markings on the side of the container. The markings say “min” and “max.” If the fluid level is at the min mark or the brake warning comes on your Subaru dashboard, Madison area drivers should bring their vehicle to a technician as soon as possible.

How to Check Your Subaru’s Coolant Level

We have all seen that one unfortunate person caught on the side of the road with the car hood popped and the engine excessively smoking. In that scenario, this person did not have enough coolant in the car, which is vital fluid to support the vehicle’s engine temperature. To check your coolant levels, open the hood and find the yellow cap that says “coolant.” The coolant reservoir has “low” and high” tick marks. If the coolant level is at the “low” tick mark, fill it up using a Subaru approved coolant. We suggest checking coolant every fuel stop, but make sure the engine has cooled down. If you are frequently filling your coolant levels or experience an overheating engine, bring you car into Subaru of Morristown where we have experienced technicians ready to assist you and your vehicle’s needs.

If you want more advice or to learn to check other fluids in your car, call (866) 910-3466 or contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you.

Subaru Drivers Near Madison Get Ready to Hit the Winter Streets

Here in New Jersey, winter is no joke. With cold temperatures and plenty of snow most years, it’s not a time of year that most residents look forward in regards to their time on the road.

Of course, the symmetrical all-wheel drive system of your Subaru makes it a bit easier to brave the cold, particularly if you’ve opted for the added ease that comes with Subaru’s All-Weather Package. So long as you stay on top of routine maintenance at our Madison area Subaru service center, you should have it pretty good this winter.

Getting ready to drive in cold weather

What many of our visitors are unsure about, though, is whether or not to take time to warm up their cars before they hit the road. Fortunately, our certified technicians have the answers.

To Warm Up or Not to Warm Up

There’s a good chance that whoever taught you to drive also suggested giving your vehicle time to warm up before you hit the road, particularly when the weather is cold. The truth is, though, that this advice really only helps for vehicles that have carburetors. We don’t see many carbs at our Subaru service department near Madison, though, since carburetors were replaced with fuel injection systems by just about every automaker by the early ‘90s.

With a carburetor, colder temperatures impact the fuel-to-air ratio until the heat of the engine balances things out. The sophisticated sensors of your electronic fuel injection system don’t have this issue, though, so there’s no need to warm up.

Instead, simply start the car and drive as you normally would. You should avoid revving the engine too hard until things come to temp, and proceed with caution on slippery roads, of course, but otherwise treat a cold weather start like you would any other.
