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.
…. 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.
Lawrence, Beth and “Aretha Franklin" ( ….. Beth’s new Subaru)
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.
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.
Best car buying experience I've ever had. There was a communication issue between the dealership and Subaru USA which cost Planet Subaru about $3500. Other dealerships simply would have abandoned the sale or passed the $3500 on to the customer, but Planet ate the difference. Very impressed with their integrity and customer service focus.
While I didn't buy a car from them (I live in PA, 365 miles away) I found their website extremely informative. I am researching Subarus and the amount of information Plant Subaru provides on its site is absolutely amazing. I learned a great deal that helped me decide which model I wanted (Forester). I wish I lived closer - I'd buy from them in a heartbeat! Based on their website alone I give them 5 stars! I can't imagine how good the actual visit must be.
Wow...it was such a treat working with Lauri Blaauboer. Her product knowledge is exceptional and her people skills are first rate. Actually, I can say the same thing about Scott Forrester in the business office as well. He was professional, yet friendly, patient and thorough. Bob Choate handled our trade-in and, not surprisingly, he was very fair and helped make the Outback more affordable for me and my wife.
Over the years I have referred many family members as well as a neighbor to Planet - all of whom have purchased a car from your "un-dealership". Rest assured I not only will continue to send customers your way whenever the opportunity arises but I will do so with great confidence knowing they will be treated fairly, honestly and with respect.
Keep up the great work.
My husband and I dread the car-buying experience but the Planet Subaru experience was great—Ryan was our salesman and he was knowledgeable and very accommodating and patient. Scott handled the financing portion of the sale pleasantly and efficiently. The dealership is clean, bright, eco-friendly and animal friendly. We have never had such an iunstressful, painless and generally customer-friendly experience when purchasing an automobile. We recommend Planet Subaru to anyone looking to buy a car! We would definitely come back if we are in the market for another Subaru in the future.
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.
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.
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!
Anna made a difficult deal relatively painless. She worked hard to make it happen and came in on her day off to meet with me. She addressed all of my concerns and was able to mediate a successful closing. Strongly recommend her!
Bought and service my Toyota at Wellesley Toyota. This dealer provides great customer service. Will be going there with my fiance to buy another Toyota to replace his 16 year old Sienna. Definitely recommend this dealer. V Stewart.
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.
It was incredible working with Marc on purchasing our new car. Marc was easy going and took the time to walk us through the vehicle. On the day we were to pick up our vehicle, we ran into issues at home and were late to our appointment with Marc. Marc made magic happen with our insurance agent and the RMV to make sure we'd be able to still bring the car home that day. The folks are MetroWest Subaru were tremendous down the line.
Traded my 2015 STI for the 2019 Grey series STI. The dealer went above and beyond my expectations not just to get the car but also making this whole transaction seamless. Very knowledgeable and respectful staff.
Even though the heading on this post is "Almost" I would like to recommend this dealership with full and high regards. The staff that is in place here starting with Jae Chong, and Brian Farrell and finally Lisa Sweet are exemplary! I did not buy a vehicle from them, but not for any reason focusing on the Dealership, the staff, or the vehicle I went in looking to purchase. These folks treat you with the utmost respect, and have the customer in mind yet at the same time trying their very best to find a compromise to fit the needs of the consumer. I would highly recommend any potential buyer to be sure to look at Chambers Motor Cars of Natick at the first stop in the process. They have high quality, low mileage vehicles at reasonable prices. In my next purchase I will doing just that, checking in with them first ! You should Too! Thanks to all for a painless experience!
