What Is the Subaru Love Promise?

The Subaru Love Promise | Beaverton, OR

You’ve no doubt heard of the slogan, “Love: it’s what makes a Subaru a Subaru.” But that’s more than just a catchy tagline — it embodies the Subaru brand. The Subaru Love Promise is a series of five initiatives, all meant to give back to the community and make the world a better place.

Subaru Loves Pets

Subaru is known for promoting pet adoption, but the brand’s animal advocacy doesn’t stop there. This part of the Subaru Love Promise contributes to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, ASPCA Rescue Rides, and the Center for Pet Safety.

Subaru Loves the Earth

In addition to implementing sustainable practices at its offices and production plants, Subaru is heavily invested in environmental preservation projects, including The Subaru Forester Re-Foresting Project, the National Park Foundation, and Leave No Trace.

Subaru Loves to Care

This cause is all about fighting disease, promoting healthy lifestyles, and improving the quality of life for patients in need. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Special Olympics, and the Alzheimer’s Association are just a few of the causes championed by Subaru.

Subaru Loves Learning

Through the Subaru Loves Learning initiative, the automaker works to improve school programs and make them more accessible. The brand champions several reputable education-based charities, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Teach for America, and AdoptAClassroom.org.

Anticipating the All-Electric Subaru Solterra SUV

Subaru Logo | Beaverton, OR

Here at CARR Subaru, we’re thrilled about the upcoming all-electric Subaru Solterra SUV. The automaker recently released an exciting sneak preview of this new model.

The Solterra will be a new type of energy-friendly SUV in Subaru’s already impressive lineup. Keeping the environment in mind, Subaru appropriately named the Solterra after two Latin words: “sol,” which means sun, and “terra,” which means Earth. The name makes for a perfect combination to describe a vehicle that Subaru anticipates will elevate its adventure-friendly vehicle family to new energy-efficient heights. The Solterra is expected to go on sale in Beaverton, Oregon, in 2022.

At present, we don’t know for sure about the Solterra’s dimensions and exterior style. The EV’s build could range anywhere between the profile of the Crosstrek, the physique of the Forester, or the sleek shape of the Outback.

But we do know that the Subaru Solterra will be built on the e-SUBARU Global Platform, as the brand has confirmed. The e-SUBARU Global Platform utilizes Subaru’s all-wheel-drive experience with Toyota’s demonstrated capability for developing electric vehicles.

The Solterra will also feature an “EV” badge in a blue shade similar to the 2021 Subaru Legacy’s Abyss Blue Pearl. More 2023 Subaru Solterra updates are available for eager buyers on Subaru’s website. And make sure to stay tuned to CARR Subaru’s blog in the days ahead for more details as we hear more about the upcoming all-electric Subaru Solterra.

Spring Service Tips for Your Vehicle in Beaverton, OR

Spring Service Tips | Beaverton, OR

Given the fact that Subaru vehicles like the 2021 Forester, Outback, and Crosstrek are so reliable, it’s easy to forget that routine maintenance is still a vital part of car ownership. Now that the weather is warming up and summer is finally on the horizon, it’s a good time to make sure your car is still in fighting shape. Here are a few spring service tips you can use to make sure your Subaru runs like new for years to come.

Perform a fluid check

Even if you haven’t been very much over the past few months, you should check your vehicle’s vital fluids. If your 2021 Ascent or 2021 Impreza is due for an oil change, you can ask the service experts at Carr Subaru in Beaverton, Oregon, to take a look at the rest of them.

Take a look at the tires

Between schlepping through snow, grinding against gravel, and tearing up the track in your 2021 WRX, your tires can take a beating during the winter. So, before you set out on your next road trip or springtime afternoon excursion, make sure you take a look at your tires. If the tread is worn down or the pressure is a bit too low — which happens when the temperature fluctuates — you can pick up a new set from your friends at CARR Subaru.

Change the windshield wipers

Chilly weather and road salt deposits can do a number on your windshield wipers, and it’s unsafe to hit the open road with a streaky windshield. If you’re planning a summer vacation, make sure your windshield wipers are in tip-top shape.

If your ride is in need of any service before you take to the open road — or if you’re in the market for a new family-hauler—don’t hesitate to pay us a visit at CARR Subaru.

Subaru Wins a Silver Halo Award for Reducing Waste at National Parks

2019 Subaru Crosstrek | Beaverton, OR

Subaru has a well-earned reputation as an environmentally focused brand. Recently, those efforts earned the automaker a 2020 Silver Halo Award, which recognizes businesses that promote helpful social and environmental causes.

In collaboration with the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru of America has furthered its “Don’t Feed the Landfills” initiative by launching recycling and composting programs at three of America’s most beloved parks — Denali, Grand Teton, and Yosemite. Since the pilot program began in 2015, it has diverted over 16 million pounds of waste from local landfills.


“Our national parks represent the very best of the American great outdoors, and we feel a responsibility to keep them clean and free of waste for future generations to enjoy,” remarked Alan Bethke, the Senior Vice President of Marketing for Subaru of America.

Theresa Pierno, President and CEO for the National Parks Conservation Association, says that the automaker’s zero-landfill practices have helped the park system learn more about the best way to implement recycling programs at the parks. She expressed that the NPCA hopes to implement these waste-reduction practices in parks nationwide.
