NJ Steps Up to the Plate for the Subaru Loves Learning Initiative

Subaru has long valued the importance of education and continues to take opportunities to prove it! Since starting the Subaru Loves Learning initiative, Subaru and its retailers have donated over 70,000 award-winning science books to schools across the nation. In NJ specifically, the Subaru Loves Learning initiative is in full throttle: Subaru helps support the Garden State Discovery Museum and is partnered with the Center for Aquatic Sciences and the Kingsway Learning Center.

The Garden State Discovery Museum is a hands-on, fun, and imaginative educational experience. The Center for Aquatic Sciences promotes the understanding and appreciation of aquatic life through education and youth development programs. And finally, the Kingsway Learning Center is a special education center devoted to the needs of children with multiple developmental and learning disabilities.

It’s clear that Subaru dealerships throughout NJ are standing up for education. If you value the future, you should invest in the youth. If our dedication to learning has you intrigued, see why a Subaru might be perfect for all of your New Jersey expeditions.

Summer Safety Tips for Pet Owners

The summer season is a great opportunity to spend time hanging out with your four-legged friends, especially if you’re the outdoorsy type. The high temperatures that come with summer can be potentially dangerous, though, so always be sure to remember how pets handle the heat differently and to plan ahead!

Staying Hydrated

While this one might be fairly obvious, that doesn’t make it any less important. You know the importance of drinking plenty of water when the temperature goes up, and the same is true of pets. Whether you’re home or away, be sure to provide your pets with plenty of water. You can bring a bowl along with you, or check out specialty options made specifically for giving your dog water on-the-go.

Bringing water along for dogs

Travel Appropriately

No matter how you’re traveling, keep your pet in mind. If you’re driving somewhere, never leave your pet in the vehicle unattended. Even if your pet has water or the air conditioning is on, the unexpected can lead to disaster and things can go wrong in the blink of an eye. If you need to stop, bring your pup inside with you or leave a human in the car to keep an eye on things.

Traveling with pets

Don’t Go Overboard

Hikes, runs, and walks are all great ways to spend time getting fit with Fido, but not when the temperature is extreme. If it’s too hot out, it’s best to limit exercise to short trips in the shade for your dog to do her business–save the hike for a cooler day.

Also, don’t forget how hot sidewalks and pavement can get in the sun. If it’s uncomfortable for you to press your back of the hand to the walkway for an extended period of time, it’s too hot for your dog to be out walking on it.

Watch the Humidity

Lastly, don’t forget that your dog handles heat differently than you do. While dogs do sweat a bit (mostly through their paws), panting is a big part of how they cool down. When it’s humid, panting is less effective. Be sure to keep an eye on your dog’s temperature on hot and humid days, and don’t hesitate to visit the vet if you suspect your pet may be overheating or suffering from heatstroke. It’s always better to be safe than sorry in these situations!

What Warning and Indicators Could Mean for Your Subaru

You get into your Subaru and start the engine and you’re greeted with an unfamiliar indicator on your dashboard. What does this mean? Our Randolph area Subaru service center wants our drivers to feel safe in their car. That’s why it is important to know what these symbols mean and when it is time to bring in your vehicle for a service. The most common warning indicators people might see are the check engine light, low tire pressure warning light and oil pressure indicator warning.Subaru Low Tire Pressure Indicator

If this symbol above does not disappear after two seconds of turning your Subaru on, your tire pressure is low. During the cold months, low tire pressure can be a common issue for vehicles. If this symbol appears, check your tires as soon as you can and inflate them to the proper pressure. Failure to do so can lead to tire failure which could cause extensive damage. Subaru tires are available at our Randolph area service center.

Low Oil Pressure Warning Light for Subaru

For your car to have a healthy life, it needs to have oil. When the indicator above appears, this means oil pressure is low or the lubricating system is not working properly. If this light appears while driving or does not shut off after the engine starts, reach a safe location to turn your engine off and check your oil level. If the oil level is low, add oil immediately. However, if you find the oil to be at a normal level but the light is still on the dashboard, a specialist from Subaru of Morristown will need to analyze your vehicle.

The Meaning of Check Engine in your Subaru for Randolph Area Drivers

There could be a few explanations why a “check engine” light could appear:

 

-If a check engine light that blinks or steadily appears while the car is running, this implies there is a problem in the emission control system. You need to bring your car to Subaru of Morristown immediately for service.

-If the check engine light is blinking while driving, the emission control system could be damaged. A check engine light should not be taken lightly and will require attention from a Subaru specialist. Further use of your vehicle could lead to serious damage that may not be covered under your warranty.
