Tim George, the sales representative was amazing. This was the best buying experience I have had. Tim listened well and delivered great service. The process was completed on the telephone and in the dealership. Our total time to complete it all including the thorough review of this car's systems was a short three hours. Very impressive!
Awesome Car to Own!
by Junebug2000 from Fayetteville, Georgia

This was a great car to own. It fit with all of my needs, and was a great buy! Would purchase another one, anytime. Very reliable.
We had a great experience. All of the staff that we encountered (sales, finance, services & parts) were professional, friendly, and service oriented. They were happy to answer all my questions about buying, driving, and maintaining an electric car. I was so relaxed, I suppose I forgot to do the normal due diligence for buying a used car. But in retrospect, I don???t mind at all. We got a wonderful certified preowned vehicle with a great warranty.
Great car; excellent visability
by LynO from Boone, NC

This car is great for mountain roads and highway driving. Eyesight was a selling point when I purchased and recommend buying Starlink every year. Having that connection when something has happened is worth every cent. What sold me along with Eyesight was the visibility of the Forester and the interior room. I tested a CRV and the Forester and the Sub won hands down.
First time buying a new car was an enjoyable activity. I feel like I got a tremendous deal, was treated with kindness, professionalism, and joy. Everyone there seemed like they enjoyed being there. I got a beautiful car, Kendall got a satisfied customer.
Good All-Purpose Car
by Alex from Brooklyn, NY

Full disclosure: My girlfriend owns it, but I drive it a lot. I find the 2017 Forester to be a pretty decent small SUV. I find it comfortable and fairly well-designed. I'm not a huge fan of CVTs but find it has enough pep when I need it. The dash is fairly well-organized and all critical controls are knobs and buttons rather than buried in the touch screen like some cars. A few things could be slightly better organized but these are minor details. The Subaru infotainment system is pretty lacking and the touch screen is buggy sometimes. They're behind the curve on this. But overall it's a decent car even if I'd like it more with a 6 speed manual.
The showroom was too noisy. There is a lot of waiting time when actually going through the buying process. The background noise in the showroom really got to be annoying. I had to contact the credit agency to remove a credit freeze; the background noise was so loud it interfered with the telephone call.
Solid 4-wheel drive SUV
by tah9 from Erie PA
January 29, 2019
Positive: Very solid 4-wheel drive medium-size SUV. Great interior, wonderful visibility through large windows for safe turning, changing lanes and backing up. Handy rear video backup camera. Good traction for winters, even without snow tires. Eyesight package is a comforting feature, even for short local highway drives, since it helps keep you in pace with traffic without going over your set limit. Heated front seats are sweet.
Negative: Rubber pad on back bumper (part of winter package) seems to come unglued (body shops have reattached it twice). Plastic cowls (about 8" long) next to wipers on left and right sides of windshield rattle in the wind. Lacks low-oil indicator on dash display, so only way to know is to manually check oil level.
Court, Lacey, Trevor (Smith ?) and Kim were very helpful and nice. A special thank you goes out to Court as we asked him a zillion questions and he went above and beyond the normal call of duty to help (put up) with us (and among other things) crunch numbers for different scenarios and "what - ifs". Car buying isn't on my "fun" list but they made it so much less stressful. Thank you all for all your help and for making good.
Beautiful and durable vehicle.

This car meets and exceeds all of my needs. I looked an numerous wagon-like models, because my old car was . VW Passat wagon. I looked at the Outback and the Forester, and immediately chose the Forester because of the feeling of space (more head room, bigger windows, and the moon roof).
I totalled my 2015 Forester. Amazed I walked away with minor injuries, I called the nearest dealer to share my story and check to see if they had a similar car. Two weeks after the accident I am the proud owner of a 2016 Forester limited.I'm
Good value for the money I paid, rides nice.

I feel comfortable and safe in the car, great visibility. The car handles extremely well in the snow, probably improve even more when I get snow tires. I like the exterior styling and open visibility, all around.
We worked with Andrew who is a very knowledgeable and helpful person. He is low pressure and very patient. Once I had chosen a car the purchasing process was as quick as it can be, although they offered add-ons there was no pressure to purchase them. They also facilitated my loan through a Local Credit Union. I recommend the company and and Andrew 100%
First Forester, fourth subaru
by Space monkey from Omaha, NE
January 27, 2019
We needed a car with plenty of interior space to fit our dogs and camping gear, and wanted to be sure we would be ok in all kinds of terrain. The new forester sport checked all of the boxes. Comfy, gets us everywhere, and has all the features we need plus some we realized are nice.
The only thing we miss is a manual transmission. Come on America....
Kendall offers 5+ service. It begins when someone opens the door for you and asks how they may assist you. The sales person, Jerry Thompson was just wonderful and patient and was able to work out a financial package I could work with.

This car is what just I was looking for! Although it's compact outside it's spacious inside, smooth to drive, steady, with all wheel drive.
My only complaint so far is it seems loud when starting and shifting speed significantly, so hopefully the engine isn't racing, but once you're at the same speed for ~15 or so seconds, it levels and quiets.
I'm very pleased with this purchase so far. Once I see it longer term through the winter I'll give an updated review.
We had a bit of a rocky start with service at Lithia. We showed up to view and drive a Jeep and talked to 3 sales people before we connected with Dakota. Dakota has a very calm and patient demeanor and matched our personalities perfectly. He quickly helped us identify where the Jeep was and ultimately helped set up a time to test drive. Dakota always promptly responded to our texts/calls and made himself available when we needed him. He was knowledgeable about the vehicles and was extremely professional and patient through the purchase process. I wish I had an option to rate Dakota specifically through this portal, but I would highly recommend you request Dakota if/when you're interested in any vehicles at this dealership. I will be calling Dakota for my next vehicle purchase as well.
Bearing design problems.
by Davido from Columbus OH
January 14, 2019
We’ve own a 2003 and 2013 Foresters and both of them had extensive wheel bearing problems at around 40-60,000 miles, costing $1500 ea. Came to learn from a Subaru auto mechanic that Subarus have a design problem with bearing seals. We will not ownanother one in the future.
I was very satisfied with my experience with Tim George at Kendall Subaru.
Won't buy anything other than a Subaru
by ShawnLM from Syracuse
October 20, 2018
The Forester is the best made, best snow car I've ever owned. It is quiet, comfortable and, best of all, reliable. It truly is the "Mercedes of Japanese cars". Until the quality drops, I won't own anything else.
I recently purchased a Toyota Prius Prime. Because I couldn?t locate what I wanted here in the Midwest, I ended up searching for one on the west coast, via the internet. I finally ended up at Kendall Motors in Eugene, OR ? the California market was just too strange. Because of the holidays, end of the year deadlines, distances involved and preplanned trips, the process could have been daunting. But the individuals at Kendall Motors, which felt like a home-town dealership, were exceptionally good. Mark Jabs, in sales, was very professional and dedicated to the success of the process and I Never felt pressured. He more than earned his pay on this one! I can?t sing his praises enough. I might have given up but for the help from both Mark and Ann in the ?paperwork? division. I thank them very much ? I ended up with exactly what I wanted. And at a good price.
Most reliable car I've owned with plenty of room.
by BlueStrangeBand from Vancouver, BC

I love this car. Powerful engine, can really feel the juice when you accelerate. Lots of room in the trunk and the seats are easy to fold down for extra space. The bluetooth works perfectly and the sound system is great. Nice clean and easy to navigate hood. It's fun to drive and we feel safe doing it!
Tim George was professional pleasant and patient during my new car buying experience. I had never bought a new car and he made it a pleasure to work with.
I will recommend him and Kendall Subaru for anyone buying a car.
Love my Subaru
by Ivonne from Nashua, NH

Feel safe! Had a rollover in a 2012 Forester, the other driver fell sleep. Because I am alive, the insurance adjuster said he has never seen anyone survive such an accident, I bought myself another one, a 2016. The only complaint is the Yokahama Geolander tires. I only have 24,000 miles on them but they are worn. Never seen such a thing. Will be replacing them in a few days before inspection. Other reviews say the same, they are the low quality eventhough they are expensive. In my family we own several Subaru's.
Ron was our salesperson. He was amazing and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our purchase. He kept in contact without being annoying. I highly recommend to seek him out when you're shopping.
Best car I have ever owned!

It drives like a gem! My wife loves it and so does the dog! I look forward to a long road with my car! :)
This is our second time buying a new vehicle from this dealership. We drove 2 hours. Our local dealership give us the run around. They gave us a great price on our trade and new vehicles. Eric at Toyota is who you want to ask for when you call. We asked for a purchase agreement before we drove up. What a great experience. Definitely worth the drive.
Thank you Kendall Toyota.
Extremely comfortable and reliable

I really like this car, hate to see it go but I do not need two vehicles any longer so this one has to go. Lots of great features. No issues outside of normal wear and tear.
Best experience both times I purchase with them. The work hard for what you want and keep within your budget. They have my business for life!

I love Subarus they are great cars and so far I've had two of them. AWD, good gas mileage and good styling. They can get rid of the CVT transmissions or improve them but other than that great cars!
