Subaru Loves Dogs

width=167By: Cathy Droz – HER Certified

I’ve been test driving and talking about the Subaru brand quite a bit in the last month. I wrote an article about best vehicles for Dogs and the Subaru Outback was one of my top choices. I did a podcast in Scottsdale, Arizona where I talked about car buying and what vehicles were best for dogs. I have also made it very clear to listeners, readers and friends that Subaru is putting their money where their mouth is.

I was very impressed at the Phoenix International Auto Show in November where Subaru focused totally on their philanthropy for rescue dogs. They are on to something; in fact, my car/dog article on LinkedIn garnered over 1,500 likes in ten days. Does this mean their commercials are selling cars or dogs?

I was able to test drive the Outback Onyx Edition last week and like all my past Subaru test drives they come out on top. Subaru makes a sturdy, adventuresome yet luxurious vehicle. If you’ve tested or owned one, you know what I mean. Whether it’s your dogs or luggage, kayak, surfboard, skis, wheelchair or plants the Outback has YOUR BACK (Get it?)
