Is Your Car Ready for Trunk-or-Treating?

It’s that time of year again — the leaves are falling and children of all ages are gearing up for Halloween. Costumes and decorations are some of the more fun aspects of the spooky season, and you can take things one step further by decorating your Subaru

Trunk-or-Treating is a growing phenomenon, offering a safer and more secure environment for children to collect candy on All Hallows’ Eve. The setup involves parents and neighbors parking cars in a local parking lot — whether it be a school, church, or somewhere else — and allowing children to trick-or-treat from trunk to trunk. Car decorations are normally themed, creating a fun and festive environment for all involved. 

Decorating Your Spooky Subaru

So, is your Subaru prepped for trunk-or-treaters this Halloween? You can take advantage of the ample cargo space in the Subaru Crosstrek, Forester, and Outback, decking out your trunk as a haunted house, a mad scientist’s lab, or even an interactive “I Spy” activity! 

Whether you are keeping it simple or going all out, creativity is key. You can make use of decorations from other holidays, i.e. Christmas lights and ornaments, or make your car sports-themed with gear from your favorite team. Trunks with a funny theme are also a surefire way to keep your trunk-or-treaters entertained. Maybe you’ll opt to transform your Subaru into a construction site or a McDonald’s drive-thru — do you want fries with that?

Whichever Subaru model you drive, you can take advantage of this unique activity and deck out your Ascent or Impreza to thrill trunk-or-treaters in the Morristown area.

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.
