Fate led me here! - Marquise G

I got my car towed here because my transmission went up 6 hrs into moving across the country! I may have hit 600 out of 2400 miles. Another dealer flushed my transmission a month prior. I thought it was something that needed to be done since I was driving across the country. When my car was towed there a little after hours, Kirk immediately began to assist with trying to see if he could find out what was going on to reduce the worry. My car would not go into drive.. I was told that the folks at that dealership should’ve advised me that if it wasn’t required, I didn’t need it done. I ended up having to stay at a hotel. The next day, which was a Thursday , I got back to Subaru and they inform me that it’s my transmission. I practically died on the inside. I called the previous Subaru dealer and they didn’t even have the correct mileage of my car & refused any assistance. I called Subaru customer care and opened a claim! That takes 48 hours & I still had 30 hours left of driving with a Forester FULL of my things. I asked Kirk to refer me to a sales person so I could see about getting a new car! He did & I’m so grateful he sent Val. My girl Valeriya was super AMAZING! She was attentive, patient, empathetic, understanding & truly a pleasure to work with. We shared a few jokes & she kept me in good spirits. I was having SUCH a day & it was extremely nice to have such a positive aura around me during that time. I’m almost sure I would’ve been in there boo hoo crying if she wasn’t there, it was that bad! She didn’t rush me or try to force anything on me. She wasn't pushy and made sure to ask about specifics I wanted. She respected my requests and provided me with honest information. I’ll always remember her & I might even come back across the country to her for my Ascent!! The whole team really, really worked with me & they were amazing & friendly. Even under these circumstances, this was truly the best dealer experience I’ve ever had! Fate truly had to have led me there. I ended up leaving the dealership with a 2020 Subaru Forester, premium, under 20k miles. The safety features on this bad boy are very impressive by the way. I used to have a 2017 Subaru Forester, touring. That was my favorite car to date! Make sure you come here for your Subaru needs! Oh and get you a Subaru if you’re thinking about it! I hope you guys really know what you did for me yesterday! Thanks again!

Fate led me here!

Germain Supports The Open Shelter - Shannon H

Germain Subaru supported The Open Shelter for the 2rd consecutive year during the 2021 Subaru Loves to Help Event. Team members from Germain Subaru hand delivered 200 blankets and socks to help support the homeless and marginally-housed in Central Ohio. The Holiday Season is a particularly challenging time for Open Shelter patrons and the timing of this donation was crucial for many people in need. We enjoyed a tour of the facility and learned more about the services provided there. Thank you to The Open Shelter for allowing us to partner in providing these very important services to Central Ohio.

It's Alive! - Dave Y

Thanks to the entire service team at Germain Subaru. My son bought himself a 2011 WRX STI (his dream car) from a private seller. After only a month of driving, the car had bearing failure likely due to abuse by the previous owner. My son was heartbroken and even worse he was on his way to Basic Training and couldn't dedicate the time needed to fix the car himself. We are so glad that we reached out to Germain Subaru. Benny, Cody and Trevor came to the rescue with a new OEM short block, and they reassembled and installed the engine and it has been running great with no issues and no Check Engine Lights! Trevor and Cody both have a lot of experience with these limited-edition models, and we were very confident in their work. They kept us in the loop as the car was put back together even during the busy holiday season. It's good to know that there are still car dealers you can trust to do good work and take care of their customers. Thanks again for all of the hard work!

It's Alive!

A Lucky Pup Living Out His Golden Years - Jillian L

Stitch is a 10 year old Pitbull mix that was a shelter surrender and transferred to RESCUEDohio in September 2021. He arrived with multiple health issues including skin and ear infections, undiagnosed masses on his body, teeth that had been neglected and an enlarged testicle. An amazing foster welcomed him into their home offering a warm bed to sleep in, food to eat and all the love he needed to start his journey to healing. His senior years will definitely be his golden years; his foster fell in love with his fondness of early dinners and belly rubs and decided to give him a permanent home. Stitch is the sweetest old man who spends his days being a shadow to his new owner, chasing balls and taking long naps. Stitch’s care costs totaled $1,940.00 and we were able to cover his vet bills because of the support of Subaru and the Subaru Loves Pets campaign. The overall campaign donation of $3,100 helps us provide care to other dogs like Stitch that need more intensive medical care. RESCUEDohio is so grateful for the support we have received from Germain Subaru over the past 4 years.

Thank You From RESCUEDohio! - Kara S

Our partnership with Germain Subaru has enabled us to place over 500 dogs into their forever homes in 2020. In this time, we have been able to take in multiple medical and emergency cases that we would otherwise not have been able to manage. With the donations from the Subaru Loves Pets and Share the love campaigns, we have been able to help puppies heal from parvovirus, treated 16 heartworm positive dogs, provided loving care for 6 hospice dogs, and prepared them all for their forever homes. Our volunteers work hard everyday to help the dogs that we bring into our group, and it is hard on all of us to see furry faces in need of help and to have to say “no”. Thanks to the support we’ve received from Germain Subaru, we have been able to say “yes” to many more dogs in need, giving them the care they need to set them up for the lives they deserve. We are so thankful for this partnership and Subaru’s dedication to homeless animals, and we can see the impact of their support every day in the form of wagging tails and puppy kisses. We even made a video to show the story of just one dog that got his Freedom Ride thanks to Subaru’s support! https://youtu.be/Pm0G44skNBc
