I had a excellent experience at Bertera Subaru from working with my knowledgeable , friendly and attentive sales consultant Issa to completing the transaction with Crist the business manager. He was extremely helpful and make the transaction run smooth.

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.
I am very happy with this dealership. Joseph Boughton was the best dealer I ever had to deal with. I will be sending my friends to him soon. Great experience.
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.
We have bought several vehicles from Bertera of Hartford always from Issa Daoud. He is probably the best car salesman I have ever dealt with. He listens to what you need, goes above and beyond to ensure that you get what you asked for and leave happy, and follows up after the sale. A really great experience. I have referred many friends to Issa and they always walk away happy. The only reason they get 4 not 5 stars is that at times the negotiation process gets contentious by sales management which should be unnecessary with all the tools available to plan with before you walk in the door. The finance team is very efficient and explain everything clearly. If you are looking for a new Subaru I highly recommend this dealership.

So far so good. Looking forward to seeing what a Subaru has to offer. This is our first and the sales people assured us it won’t be our last.
I met with Paul Hewitt to lease or purchase a vehicle. Paul provided very excellent service.
I was not sure whether to buy or lease. Paul was patient and walked me through the various options and was very throrough! What impressed me the most was his ability to look at this from my perspective! I dealt like every step of the way Paul had my best interest in mind.
The dealer it’s self is also very professional, friendly and comfortable to be at.
If you are in the market for a new vehicle I highly recommend this dealership, specifically Paul

I was recommened to check out this dealership, Steve specifically, by my coworker who had a great experience and I am glad he did. Steve was incredibly down to earth, approachable, and did his best to make me feel comfortable. I was in no way preassured to make any decisions or jump into anything I wasn't comfortable with. I then meet Lisa in finnancing who was a pleasure to work with. She was exceptionally kind and knowledgeble. Overall my experience could not have been better and I would recommend Steve and Lisa to anyone who is looking for a Subaru.
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!
The people there were very helpful and none of them were pushy like they are at other dealerships. I didn't feel pressured into buying anything I didn't want. They were also very accommodating when I needed a ride there to pick up my vehicle.
Most comfortable car I’ve owned
by Crosstrek from Texas
January 30, 2019
This is a fantastic, versatile, comfortable daily driver. It’s completely capable on and off the beaten path not to mention the cargo space is laid out perfectly. Most people will say its under powered and I understand however it’s a daily driver and not a race car. It’s 100% perfect for what you’re paying for. Absolutely love this car!
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.
Cheap interior -felt paper for carpets
by Sueny from Watertown ny
January 20, 2019
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.
Spotless and pleasant showroom. Quite a few amenities for customer comfort. Dealt mainly with Jason Jarkes and Ed Chen. Both were extremely professional and fun to deal with. Several accommodations were made for my convenience and the overall process was very satisfying. Like most car shoppers, pushy car salesman tropes don't appeal to me and dealing with Jason was anything but. Sincere thank you to everyone at Quality Subaru for making my first Subaru purchase an excellent one. I would recommend Quality Subaru and its staff to anyone looking to buy a car, as I plan to return as well.
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.
My son was purchasing his first Subaru and I accompanied him during his experience with Jason and Quality Subaru. We were both pleasantly surprised with the friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Protective as us mothers can be Jason dealt with my questions and demands in a positive and respectful manner. I felt like we were dealing with family.
I’ve found my forever car.

The Subaru Crosstrek is my favorite purchased vehicle of all time. It’s big enough to haul a 5 foot dresser and small enough to park in a tight spot. My next car will definitely be another Crosstrek!!
Appreciate the professionalism of Mr. Olech and his ability to allow me to shop at ease, without pressure. Was very knowledgeable about all of the vehicles and he worked extremely well with his colleagues to get me the vehicle that I wanted. Thank you!
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.
Our Bertera duo was amazing! We were able to purchase a pre-owned Forester of our dreams! Keith was patient, kind, and friendly. He ran financial models, compared our Forester to other makes, answered all of our questions, and even researched a potential car at a Bertera in Hartford. He made sure that what he sold matched our budget! After we made the purchase, he demonstrated how all the electronic features worked and made sure we could operate them. Tom, their financial manager made sure we had the lowest percent loan and when my bank could beat his deal, he made our price equitable, no questions asked. He also made sure we had 6 weeks before our first payment! WOW! This dynamic duo team understands customer service and values relationships. I highly recommend Bertera Subaru of West Springfield!

Fun to drive. Turns heads. Many compliments. Very reliable and economical to own. Sporty and just a bit rugged as well! Never any problems. Just gas and oil! Subaru boxer engines run forever.
It was nice to get beyond the dickering that one is always subjected to from car salespeople. Buying from the comfort of home was nice.
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.
Excellent service,helpful salesman,professional all the way

When shopping for my dream car (a Subaru), I found the Dealership at large to be very friendly, helpful and professional. There was no pushy sales tactics at all, in fact it was quite the opposite! I feel that as a woman walking in solo, that my needs and wants were taken seriously, and I was treated very courteously. Options were explained in detail and I did not feel pushed one way or the other. I was given the space and time to make a decision about the car I wanted. I also believe that I did get a good deal on my Subaru Crosstrack when all was said and done ...thanks to my salesman Keith Goldsmith and the Finance guy Tom. And yes I would tell other people to go in and have a chat. It's well worth the time for a car that is top rated in safety ( that always comes first)!
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!
Bertera Subaru helped me purchase my 2019 Ascent. Holly Haile was very helpful through out the process. Highly recommend this dealership. Top quality service. Made the buying experience super comfortable.

7/1/18 When we first walked into the Bertera showroom every staff member was busy with a client. However Dan Leary immediately made time for us. Dan brought my wife and I to the Forester we found on Bertera's website. Dan knew most of the history of the car even though it had been in the lot for a few months. Dan then introduced us to Rich Santoni who knew even more about the particular Forester we asked about. Rich answered our questions and he immediately set up a comparison test drive for us in both a 2015 Forester and a 2015 Outback. Rich left mid week on a well deserved vacation and introduced us to Joe Bucko over the phone to help with any further inquiries. Both Rich and Joe from the Sales team answered every question we asked with no hesitation. If they did not have the answer at hand, they found out within minutes. Ashley from the Finance Team helped us make the best choices based upon our needs as we described them to her. Ashley utilized her extensive history in her role to explain the pros and cons of each option we considered. This was the most relaxing experience I have ever had spending a large sum of money in less than 2 hours. (My relaxed demeanor was commented upon by one of the staff members.) A testament to our experience with the great people at Bertera Subaru.

Buying a car from J&M was the best car buying experience by far! I worked with Vinny who was more than patient and accommodating with me. Being a young female trying to buy a car can be very difficult, but Vinny made my experience easy and smooth. He was honest about any and all details in regard to the cars. He dealt with me calling him multiple times a day to ask questions or even just check on the status of my vehicle being ready! He did his best to make sure I got my vehicle before the holiday. He made sure he put me and my child in a safe, reliable vehicle. I would highly recommend J&M to anyone looking to purchase a vehicle...in fact, I already have! :)
