Today, my wife and I picked up our new car at Planet. This is our fifth Subaru and our third Forester, plus we have only ever had one car at a time. Over the years, I had done business with another area dealership, but was urged by Carolyn N. (a couple of years ago) to give you guys a try.
I am very happy that I tried you guys. From Klaire in sales to Dave in finance, every person we encountered was great. You guys are truly unique and I look forward to working with you guys over the years. Thank you.
Cheap interior -felt paper for carpets

No storage compartments in rear. “Felt” paper for carpets. No CD player. Not what I wanted for the money. Value not there. Do not recommend.
…. Oh yes - and the Subaru is pretty fab also ;)
I have never bought a new car in the US but have been well aware of the challenges and mythology surrounding said endeavor — all of which were quickly confirmed the instant I was pushed through the front doors of two Subaru dealerships - So a couple of weeks ago we broke free from the gravitational pull of the “Atlantic nebula”, took a wide birth around and away from the blackhole better known as the “Quirk-effect” and plotted a course to Planet Subaru.
Planet Subaru - It is obvious to us that you value both your employees and customers. Everyone we met in the sales Debt, Dave in finance, the service desk and the customers by the coffee machine … where all simply smiling - chatty and relaxed, and from our perspective that is all that was required.
Dale - Beth and I are so pleased with having met and worked Derek and Milo - intelligent, funny, patient, knowledgable and a great sense of asking the right question and the right time ……… and that was just Milo ! Both Derek and Milo are indeed assets to your company.
My only complaint is the ridiculous long services intervals as 6000 miles is way too long to wait to drive up to Planet and absorb some more of your positive and relaxed energy. I will be up sooner than my scheduled service decrees - no doubt !
I am not sure what you raison d’être is but … “bloody well done" and keep at it !
Kindest regards and heartfelt thanks.

Best car I have ever owned so far. It is truly a winter bitter specially for someone living in Canada and driving long distances. It has met all my expectations so far.
My lease will run out in a few months and saw that prices were quite good at this dealership. Dealt by email only. Very helpful and advised to wait as I would indebted on the lease if I broke it. Very honest and helpful in my opinion.

My car is way better than I expected. It has everything I needed and more. I couldn't be more happy with it. Back up camera is very helpful, living in Portland I'm always having to parallel park and it makes it super easy. Love the seat warmers, they're so nice for the fall and winter weathers. It's a very safe car, it has lights on my side mirrors that lets me know when someone is in my blind spot, it beeps if I'm accidently going into the next lane or if a car has stopped suddenly, it also stops its self if it gets to close to a stopped car. It has a sunroof which is a huge bonus! And the color is so beautiful, I get so many compliments on it. I love it!
I want to take this opportunity to compliment and recognize two of the extraordinary members of the service team at Planet Subaru:
I have had a number of positive interactions with Andy over the last couple years and every time I come into the undealership he greets me by name and with a warm smile. He is such a pleasure to interact with and one of the many reasons I continue to service my vehicle at Planet. I have never met a more genuine team of service professionals in my life and Andy is a shining example of this. This morning’s visit to Planet was another example of Andy welcoming me to Planet regardless of whether he will be coordinating my vehicle’s service for the day. I really appreciate that and feel so valued for my business with Planet. He is a true gentleman!
Allie welcomed me into the undealership this morning for my scheduled 60,000 mile service. She was, as she always is, very welcoming and friendly. I always feel like I am leaving my car in very capable hands. Allie takes the time to clearly explain the details of the service and makes sure I am fully aware of every important detail. Later this morning she contacted me to advise that my driver’s side front tire should be replaced due to a puncture on the sidewall that I was unaware of. She suggested that an alignment be completed as well with the replacement of the tire and also provided a clear service recommendation for fuel injection service. I was so impressed by how knowledgeable Allie was and how accommodating she was with the use of the Passport loaner vehicle.
Since purchasing our 2015 Subaru Outback, I have been a fan of Planet Subaru. From Sales to Service, my wife and I have been treated like a valued part of the Planet Subaru family. It is because of the unprecedented level of service from people like Andy and Allie, that we will continue to service our vehicle at Planet and plan to purchase many more Planet Subaru vehicles in the future.
Perfect for my needs

This is a daily driver/commuter for me. I am pleased with the fuel economy and the driving quality of this car. It is responsive and comfortable. The bad road capability is the principle reason I traded my Mazda3 for this car and I am quite pleased so far. I will say that the head unit (audio, bluetooth, etc) is less than stellar. I travel out of cell coverage a lot and rely on my iPod for tunes and podcasts. This unit is not compatible with my 4th Gen iPod. My 2017 Toyota Tacoma has no issues and my 2015 Mazda3 had no issues. It makes zero sense to me that this simple compatibility could not be included. Fortunately there is an aftermarket.
My husband and I recently bought an Audi Q5 at Audi Norwell, and we love it! We worked mostly with Laura Erickson, an Audi Brand Specialist, who was extremely helpful, very knowledgeable, patient, and always kept her sense of humor. When we took possession of our new car, Jim Liberidis, also an Audi Brand Specialist, patiently and knowledgeably introduced us to the full menu of the computerized tools that the Q5 includes, and he also expedited the registration process for us. We would wholeheartedly recommend Audi Norwell.
One of the best cars I've owned

Great car for anyone who wants dependability, great performance, comfort, necessary amenities and darn good gas mileage. There are only 2 minor features I would change about this car if I could. Great value and I would not hesitate to purchase another one tomorrow!
! Extremely accommodating, patient, and so personable. Everyone there from my sales person (Jason), the manager (Lou), and the finance person (Sandra) were some of the nicest people I've ever met. They were totally transparent and honest throughout the entire transaction. I will definitely be a life-long Ocean Honda of Weymouth customer. You MUST give them a try. I'm constantly trading in and out of cars and have dealt with many other dealerships, Air Force veteran (so I've been around), and trust me, you'll be a customer for life. If for any reason you're not hitting it off with your sales person, see Lou - he will make everything right, he always does!
Impreza on steroids

Had limited 2017Crosstrek unfortunately badly rear ended by plumber contractor's van. Survived crash. Eyesight and AWD was great, loved higher clearance and visibility around. It was best choice for the money, tried Honda, Toyota, Mazda counterparts - they are good vehicles but Subaru was better for me.
The last time I bought a car, I felt hustled. The last time my wife bought a car, we both felt hustled. This is the first time buying a car, that we both felt happy. Franco was helpful, attentive and thoughtful - he followed up during the purchase but wasn't over the top. It's our first Subaru, and we are impressed with the car quality, as well as the dealership (so far). I'm happy to recommend Franco, Subaru, and Clay Subaru.

I’ve had it almost a month and love it so far. I really enjoy the versatility, but the ride and overall driving experience is really nice. I was impressed with the visibility - one of my biggest concerns about changing from a sedan to SUV. Even my wife loves it, and she hates everything at first.
We recently purchased a used Mazda CX5 at Mazda Gallery. Our sales person, Joe D, made the whole process simple. There was no pressure, but he was there to answer every question and to expedite the paperwork process. I feel we got a great car, a good deal and a few laughs thanks to Joe.
An excellent car for the price.

I have owned my 2018 Crosstrek for 7 months and I still love it as much as the day I drove it off the lot. Excellent fuel economy for the weight and drivetrain. Fun to drive with fantastic steering response. It is a bit underpowered for my liking but it does have the torque for highway passing. The cargo area is spacious and the rear seats fold completely flat which is great for hauling. After test driving and researching several vehicles in this market segment, this was the best “bang for the buck”. I strongly recommend this vehicle.
Inquired about my used Tacoma online and was contacted promptly the next morning by Brittany in Internet Sales. I was working so a family member took the drive down from NH for me and was met by my sales rep Tony at the door. Tony was extremely helpful and knowledgeable even though the truck was a trade in for them. I would recommend asking for him if you're interested in a car at this dealership. Finance department was fine, they pushed for me to let them run my credit even though I had already secured financing. Just doing their job, but they were unable to get me a lower rate and added another hard inquiry to my report. All in all I would highly recommend this dealership as my experience was great.
Love the styling and all wheel drive

Ever since I laid my eyes on the Crosstrek I have wanted one. They are a practical car with smooth styling. My wife and have taken my Crosstrek camping and on little trips and it always performs awesome.
before I purchased my crosstrek, I researched several models and prices. I searched high and low for a dealership that would provide me with personal experience without ripping me off or treating me like just another customer. I was told by several other dealerships that my cost would be $3000 more and it would be 10 weeks to get the color that I wanted. Not to mention, some other places were very rude. When I came to Clay Subaru, I was immediately treated respectfully and I felt important to every single person there. Franco has a very down-to-earth personality and kept me updated each step of the way. Within a week, he secured the exact model and color that I was looking for. He was just excited about finding it as I was. A couple days later, I drove off the lot with my beautiful new car and saved a money. I would definitely go back to Clay Subaru and will continue to recommend prospective Subaru owners to go there first. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. 10 Stars!
EXCELLENT value in a nicely priced car

Trouble free transportation in a nice looking all around good car.
Clean oil and filters and a full tank of gas and you are good to go.
I dealt with Franco, who was very helpful and respectful. When I needed help after taking the car home Franco graciously answered all my questions. I feel comfortable asking Franco for help which is very important to me. Everyone I came in contact with at the Dealership was knowledgeable and respectful. A very positive experience all around.
Love my crosstrek
by Kevin from Sacramento
December 10, 2018
My first Subaru and I love the car. Wasn’t looking for a lot of frills and for the price I’m satisfied. Looks sporty, especially in black and with my bike racks on top. I drive to Tahoe to bike and ski and it has plenty of power to get me there with no issues. Plenty of room, I fit a 6ft Xmas tree in the back no problem.
The only thing that I wish was different is that it’s hard to see the speedometer when driving. It’s tucked to the right side of the dash, I have to look around the steering wheel to see it, wish it was in the middle or as a digital heads up display.
Simple, Professional and easy to deal with throughout!

From the moment I reached out inquiring about a specific model jeep grand Cherokee Tim sent the pricing information over immediately and quickly set an appointment for the following morning for me. When I arrived I was met by Tim and Pablo and the Jeep was waiting for me. Pablo took care of everything from there. During the test drive he explained all the new and improved features that differed from the slightly older model Jeep I had now. Pablo made this entire process so easy as he lined up all the steps needed to be completed and offered to have the car ready to take home in the afternoon. The car was ready for pickup and Yamen helped with closing out my old lease and I was on my way. Easily the best car buying experience I have had in the 20+ years in doing this. I highly recommend this place, all around great experience!
Highly reliable and fuel efficient
by DD from El Paso, TX

From the moment I purchased the Crosstrek, I have found a new admiration for the Subaru brand. Although it doesn’t have the crazy 0-60 speed like some cars do, it does provide a comfortable ride that can take you places those other cars cannot, and definitely has better fuel efficieny. I just reached 6000 miles in my Crosstrek and average around 28-29MPG in the city. I was also wowed by the award winning safety features that came with it as well. All in all, great car!!!
I worked with Jeff B, who was very courteous, patient and professional. He answered all my questions and there was no sales pressure at all. He took a great deal of time in order to explain all the features, bells and whistles of the vehicle. It was a relaxed experience and a pleasure to work with him.
Very reliable vehicle

The car has met my needs and I have been extremely happy with its reliability and performance. Subaru makes great vehicles and I cannot stress how satisfied I have been with everyone in the service department. Great job everyone!
Went to subaru of wakefield for a new car. Our sales person John Cheshire was great. He was very courteous, knowledgable. Would very highly recommend this place
Great car for the money
by Redsoxfan from Boston

I bought this car after a very snowy winter in the Northeast. It's my first SUV and I am very happy with it. The visibility and clearance is excellent and all wheel drive is a plus. I have to admit that the style was also a major factor as this is a very cool looking car. On the downside, the power is a bit underwhelming. I don't have a problem merging on a highway but the pickup is a little slow.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
This is the 6th Subaru I have Owned

I have purchased Imprezas and Outbacks, driven Foresters and Legacys. But the Crosstreks are by far the best! I have driven in snowstorms, rain storms and ice storms - and the obnly thing I have had to worry about are the other drivers on the road who are NOT driving Subarus.
