Subaru of America Supports Fall Car Care Month

Free Vehicle Diagnostic Inspections Offered to Subaru Drivers in October

Cherry Hill, N.J., October 1, 2010 - Subaru of America, Inc. announced today that the company is endorsing the Car Care Council's Fall Car Care Month, a nationwide October program highlighting the importance of regular vehicle maintenance. To help Subaru owners heed the council's advice to "Be Car Care Aware," most Subaru dealers are offering free vehicle diagnostic inspections in preparation for the demands of winter driving.

The Car Care Council notes that regularly maintaining your vehicle - including checking the oil, filters and fluids; belts and hoses; brakes and tires; and the air conditioning system - can preserve your automotive investment by helping your vehicle last longer.

"No matter where you live or what you drive, Fall is always a good time to prepare your vehicle for winter's cooler weather - and regular maintenance will also help improve your mileage, lower emissions, and improve the future resale value of your vehicle," notes Gary Palanjian, vice president of parts and service, Subaru of America, Inc. "We want every Subaru driver to enjoy the highest possible safety, performance and fuel economy, which is why we support Fall Car Care Month and offer the free service inspections."

During Fall Car Care Month, Subaru dealers will be performing a thorough no-obligation multi-point diagnostic checkup of all major operating systems, and owners will receive a written report of the vehicle's condition. Consumers can visit to find a participating dealer.
