my loved ones catch the Subaru fever! Later on, the Forester got MotorTrend's SUV of the year, so it felt good to know we had made the right call even before the award was given to it.
2004 Subaru Outback Sedan H6 that will become part of our family when we get married in May of '14. She's been having fun with that car and I'm so proud to have found this little monster sedan for her! We've named it "Agnes" and it's been a great reliable car for us. I've been helping with maintenance on it as I continue to learn my way around Subarus, so it's been an enjoyable experience for both of us. Her dad (my future father-in-law) got a '14 Legacy, too... so both of our families have these great vehicles. It's really beginning to look like "All We'll Drive". When our families get together, it's like a big Subaru Meet every time and it makes me incredibly proud.
Side Skirts installed on my base-model Hatchback. Didn't think it was doable until he planted that seed in my brain and we got to it. Installed the Rally Armors on there, too... so we had a good ol' time. James was also a coworker of mine for a few months at my dealership, so it was fun bouncing ideas off him about Subarus. He's since become a Service Advisor, but that doesn't change much other than that I don't get to see him every day. It's just a continuing trend of the great people I've met as a result of owning these cars.
Gravel Express route to the Fall Meet, there were lots of great opportunities to get out and drive with friends. I always look forward to the weekly meets here at my dealership and continue planning bigger events for folks to enjoy.
2015 Subaru WRX that will be getting a '14 release. Many spy photos, renderings, and concept car images had been teasing fans about the future of this icon for Subaru Enthusiasts, so it was great getting confirmation of this car. While some may still have their doubts, I'm personally stoked for this car, especially after seeing the Driving Sports TV review of this and hearing the praises he had about the car's handling and responsiveness.
All in all, it's been a great year for me... and Subaru has certainly been a big part of it. Subaru has had a great year for sales, continuing to meet and exceed the needs of their customers and turning heads with their award-winning designs. Whether I was meeting new friends or drooling over the next generation of the WRX, Subaru made this year a lot of fun for me. I'm happy to work for them, proud to have my family drive them, and enjoying every mile! And 2014 looks to continue that trend!! Happy New Year, everyone! See you next year!
