I had Jesus help me to buy my pre-owned car. He did a magnificent job and had everything ready for me to pick up and drive my car.
One of the best cars I've owned
by Scooter from Dunwoody, GA

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!
Two years ago, when we were ready to move to Conn from Ohio, we asked our Subaru customer rep in Columbus to recommend a Subaru dealership that we could depend on. He gave us Garavel's specific contact info and that was very helpful when we needed some minor adjustments to one of our leased cars after we moved to Conn. More recently, in October 2018, we had a real catastrophe when both of our Ohio Subaru Foresters were totaled in a flash flood so we got in a rental car and went back to Garavel. We met Gary Bauman who understood our dilemma. We knew that we wanted two Foresters and Gary knew everything about the great new features and he explained and demonstrated them to us. When we said goodbye to Gary the first time, Joe drove home in a 2019 Forester that was available in the lot - it had his name on it. Jeanne was happy to wait a little longer for her beautiful red 2019 Forester that is the envy of everyone, and when we said goodbye to Gary the second time, we were completely satisfied. Since then, we have recommended Gary and Garavel to others whose cars were destroyed in that flood. We are certainly satisfied customers. Thank you, Gary and Garavel! Please give yourselves ***** in every category! Joe and Jeanne Reed
13th "Subby" we have owned

Power is not that high, but comfort ease of driving, leg room heated seats, 6 speed, gas mileage 37.8 mpg, great little car but not for 10,000 ft in elevation
I found Dave to be most helpful at helping to find the right car and features, and I loved the fact that it was a best fit conversation rather than steering me to the top of the market as other dealers may do. I???m on day 3 of my new 2019 Sport Forester and very happy with my choice. I???ll happily recommend you.

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.
I am a first time Subaru driver and couldn???t be more pleased with my experience at Garavel. Miles walked me through the process, educated me and made me a convert! Staff was warm and welcoming, finance was thorough- I drove off feeling my needs had been met and my expectations exceeded. Love the car! Highly recommend!
Solid and Stable

Solid smaller SUV with good resale. This vehicle has all the necessities without a whole lot of extras. Its a reliable vehicle that gets good gas mileage.
My salesman, Joe Iucci, took a lot of time with me in setting up my sale and explaining the features on the car. After the purchase process was complete, he sat in the car and showed me/demonstrated all of the cars features. He was extremely helpful! The female finance person, whose name I forgot, was also very helpful.
EXCELLENT value in a nicely priced car
by Victor Oneill from Lo s Angeles, Ca

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.
Clinton Declue is by far the best in the business!!! I'm a very critical person and expect to be treated the way I treat others. Everyone in the service department was exceptional and friendly. I will continue to come to Grand Prix Subaru for any service my 2018 WRX needs. Thank You!!! WRXMombo

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.
Being familiar with Subaru's I came into the dealership knowing exactly what I wanted and what it would take to make a deal that day. The staff was friendly and courteous. The premises was clean and inviting. My salesperson, Joe Iucci, was excellent. Buying a new car can be a nightmare but it was NOT at Grand Prix Subaru and the deal was sealed. I would highly recommenced both the dealership and specifically Joe Iucci. Will definitely come back and recommend to my friends and neighbors.
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!
No nonsense just friendly, polite, and courteous service. Came home with brand new car. Love it, love the dealership, but most of all can't say enough about our salesperson. Joe Iucci. We highly recommend him.
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.
bought my 4th subaru from them and referred at least five different people here to purchase their cars. Best deals in price, best value in service. I worked with Ray the finance manager who always did the best he could in terms of making sure we got the car we wanted within our budget. The amount of effort he puts into making me feel like my business matters is really important and essential. That's probably why I'll not only be buying Subarus, but from only Grand Prix Subaru as well. There were only two things that bugged me, one was that I was told the car would be there in two weeks, and I waited over a month. Not really the dealerships fault that the shipping can't be faster, but the team always did their best to give me a status update. And Ray called me to tell me which incentives to take advantage of to get the best final deal in that time. He didn't have to go out of his way, or maybe he did, but I appreciate it. I was a little taken aback when all I was told to pay was 1000 cash at pick up and then told I had to pay an additional 1300 for the extended warranty, but I plan on keeping this car for a while and the extended warranty through Subaru is the probably the best thing for long-term owners. I picked up the car on a rainy day, so obviously they couldn't detail it, but they said come back any time and they'll do that for me. Of course I'll be back! Overall I got a great deal on the Ascent, a car that's very in demand and probably hard to find any deal at all.
Highly reliable and fuel efficient

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!!!
Frank Tinelli, great salesman/excellent experience
by Aviphd from Nanuet, NY

Frank got back to me immediately and was able to give me a clear, honest offer within a day. I had the best closing experience ever on my Forester lease. The paperwork was prepared in advance, I just walked in, signed and left with my vehicle, exactly as expected. I have dealt with many dealerships in the past, having purchased or lease many cars. This experience was, by far, the best one I have ever had. I am a real customer. I would definitely come back again for my next vehicle. This is a class act dealership. Thank you.
Great car for the money
by Redsoxfan from Boston
November 1, 2018
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.
Our son needed a car and had expressed interest in a Subaru Legacy. We had visited another dealerships but felt most comfortable here even though Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru was a distance from home. Glen was helpful, patient and made the experience a good one. It was our second time at the dealership with Glen to review our options of used versus new car purchase. We love that our son will be in a safe vehicle and he's excited to own his first car.
Smoothest ride I've ever had
by Jroot88 from Sparta
December 13, 2018
This car exceeded my expectations and they were high. Great gas mileage all wheel drive and plenty of storage space for all of my work related needs.
Gary Mendelsohn was honest, very helpful and easy to deal with. I purchased a 2019 Forester from Gary Their finance dept. was very helpful, they contacted Subaru of America to find an Owner Loyalty coupon in the amount of $ 500.00 that I couldn't find.

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!
most pleasurable experience in all my years of car buying.

I remember when i almost bought a vehicle when they were located in Hauppauge,ny. This experience at there new location in Farmingdale,n.y was exceptional> no pressure great atmosphere and a wonderful and professional sales person. Sales professional Annalea was so helpful and answered all the questions i had about the vehicle. The vehicle which i purchased was super clean and had all the options i wanted. After looking at used vehicles i am happy i purchased for Novak Motors .Annalea is an asset to this company and would without reservation reccommend Annalea and this Dealership to anyone i know looking for a great deal on a quality used vehicle. I would also like to commend Frank Cannizaro for all his help.
Subarus are the Most Reliable Cars!
by clfgoeshiking from san diego, CA

If you venture into the great outdoors this car is for you!! Subaru AWD will get you in and most importantly get you out of most places! You will love this car!
I recently went to Subaru to test drive the Forester and the Outback with intentions of trading in my mini van. The staff were pleasant and quick to serve us. Once introduced to Howard Bonfield, he asked some questions to ascertain what type of vehicle and features I was looking for. Howard is very knowledgeable of the Subaru product and explained differences of many aspects of the vehicles. The test drive was most important and helped me make my decision. The purchasing process was easy and when I returned to pick my car, Howard reviewed everything on paper and also directly within the vehicle. I drove out of the Subaru dealership very confiddant that I made the best decision on this purchase.
Great little car.

More room in my garage with less truck & interior storage. Without using the roof rack or adding a tow option, camping supplies for 2 (or pet baby carriers) would be a tight fit.
Our Sales Consultant did an outstanding job of explaining all of the features of the vehicle we purchased, a Forester. He did it when we first walked in, when we did the test drive, and when the dealer was turning the vehicle over to us. He came in on his regular day off to turn the vehicle over to us. The dealer needs to enlarge his facility, which is very busy, and they have plans to do so in the near future by relocating the service department to a separate nearby building which will allow them to outfit a bigger showroom. I will have to get used to the no-haggle pricing arrangement which I believe was bona fide but can you really ever know, but it definitely is a step in the right direction. MSRP versus invoice has always been too much of a moving target which has depended on one's price knowledge and negotiating skills. I gave four stars for pricing, not five, because I don't really know if it was the best possible pricing but it was reasonable. I bought the car for safety, AWD as a standard, reliability ratings and fuel economy. It looks great also. I don't know why the Forester is classified as a compact. It seems spacious.
Great, Stylish, Reliable Car!
July 30, 2018
I purchase my 2016 Subaru CrossTrek a little over a month ago. So far I love it! I love the styling and features. The car also has a nice smooth ride and a little more ground clearance compared to a standard sedan. I really don't have anything negative to say about it! The only slight negative is it seems a little bit underpowered. It takes a little longer to pick up if you need to accelerate quickly, but once it does, it reaches speed quickly. This is a minor thing for me. Overall for the price, I think it is great, reliable car that looks great too! I love my CrossTrek!
Bill Kolb Jr was a great experience for getting a Subaru. The sales people are knowledgeable. They wanted me to get the car I wanted and not something more expensive or something that was on the lot already. When they realized I needed the car before Thanksgiving they pulled out all the stops and got the car ready for me as soon as possible. The financial staff was incredibly helpful and straightforward. When I get another Subaru I will go here.
The dealership's no-haggling pricing on used cars and salesman Howard Bonfield's straightforward and informative attitude made my used car purchase fast and easy. The price I paid for the car was lower than competing area dealers. If you are in the market for a used Subaru, they have a great selection and very competitive pricing.
Friendly, respectful, thorough. I am very happy with my purchase. Robert was very responsive to what I was looking for and did not try to push me into anything I wasn't interested in.
Best Car I've Owned
by XTREK from West Palm Beach, FL

Absolutely love this car. It's a little underpowered but I knew that buying it. I didn't buy it for speed. I take it off roading, and use it as my daily. I feel incredibly safe knowing I drive a Subaru and the car's "eyesight" safety features has saved me from a few accidents where cars have cut me off and I had very little time to stop. I live in florida so AWD isn't really necessary but it's a nice addition to have. I feel even more safe now when I drive in the rain. The car is very reliable and holds its value very well. I love supporting Subaru. The brand itself fits my lifestyle perfectly. I couldn't ask for a better car.
Woody went above and beyond to help me- which I appreciate.
