My wife and i decided to just ???drop in??? and look around. We were greeted by Jeff Hill and immediately felt as ease. I served 25 years in the Marine Corps and have had my fair share of ???salesmen???. Jeff Hill was cut from a different cloth. His friendliness and no pressure sales had us convinced that this place is the place to buy. We came back later that night and approached by Roy Perez (who was also phenomenal). Decided to come back the next day, Jeff Hill wasn???t available but Rich Wood took amazing care us for the remainder of our purchase. I introduced myself to the GM Tony LaPuma and it was clear that he???s obviously running a tight ship. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone and everyone to shop here. Prices are beyond exceptional along with the no pressure environment. Thank You Automax Ocala for a memorable purchase

Meets every need, roomy, drives great in snow, handles better than any suv I've driven. Look, design, USB portals, road side assistance, bluetooth, all great features
Erica is an outstanding informed professional yet fun sales girl who finds what you want and gets it done!!! She truly cares and her follow up is great!
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.
Love my new Volvo S 60,great experience.
Thank you,Ocala Volvo.
Thank you Terry Brownrigg and the rest of the Ocala Volvo team.
I have been a customer for over eight years!
Thank you Ocala Volvo .
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.
Service Dept personnel are friendly and very knowledgeable, answered all our stupid questions without making us feel
Like idiots. Would definitely use this dealership again. We were in and out in no time.
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....
I am happy with this dealership because of its distance to my home and also the fact that my salesperson (John McLean) was very friendly and helpful. Since I received my car (9/2015) I have been very pleased with any service performed.
My 3rd Subaru and love it!
by Jane18 from DE

I love my Forester! It has the features I wanted plus a few more. The safety measures are excellent. The dealership, Rafferty Subaru in Newtown Square, PA is a fantastic place to do business.
I drove an hour sight unseen to this dealership and could not have been more impressed with the sales department and financing division buying for a new Volvo. I filled out the online credit app., sent a few things by email and my car was ready by the time I got there with a lower price than I even thought was possible. So much more professional than "car salesmen", they actually made buying a car a great experience. Every other dealership I felt like I was being taken advantage of, and was in a trap. This dealership was the opposite: they gave me a better deal than I even thought was possible and answered every question on my level, and had a sense of humor. A rare thing to find in dealerships!
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.
Needed to turn in my leased 2013 Subaru Legacy and was initially thinking of switching brands. Test drove a 2016 Legacy and ended up staying with Subaru. Leanne was great! She showed my wife and me the ins and outs of all the things we didn't have with our 2013. I can't rate the quality of repairs yet because I haven't had it in for service yet but if it's anything like the service I had in PA and DE it will be excellent also.
Good All-Purpose Car
by Alex from Brooklyn, NY
January 29, 2019
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.
a pleasant experience was had, and what was most appreciated was the fact that we were not pressured, our questions were answered promptly.
Most reliable car I've owned with plenty of room.
by BlueStrangeBand from Vancouver, BC
January 24, 2019
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!
Was just out and about checking into Subaru after reading consumer reports, Steven greeted me and was a big help in me deciding what I want to do. He answered all my questions and was not pushy like so many other sales man. I haven't decided what to buy just yet, but when I'm ready I'll be buying from Steven at Bill Bryan Subaru.
Hey I just got it home and I’m being optimistic
by Elizabeth is styling from Centerport NY

This was a pre-owned vehicle used lightly as a loaner. It looks, runs and even smells like new. And we paid a great price, no BS
Tim RIVERA was great and very thorough and concise in presentation and support on new vehicle purchase. Paired my phone and went into detail on all accessories and available options. Very good purchase experience!
A. Exceptionally nice car
by MarkW from Phoenix, Az
January 4, 2019
The Forester is exactly what we were looking for. Reasonably priced, very comfortable, efficient for its size, smooth driving, excellent performing. Upright seating fits a wide range of sizes and is great for tall drivers. Excellent rear seat space. Very, very, good cargo space access. The interior is well laid out. Controls are easy to reach and easy to understand. One more thing, the climate control system is fully up to handling Phoenix summer weather.
I will always buy from Bill Bryan Subaru and the friendly staff like Joe Mac and the service department staff who always treat me like I am the only one there
Great car for the value
by Valkyrie from Chapel Hill, NC

This car provides one of the best safety feature, eyesight. Driving with it always provides me with the most confidence. The AWD comes with standard configuration of this car also make your icy driving safer.
Scott Hall did a great job of closing the deal. I am very happy with the truck. Pete Brown is great in finance.
Love my Subaru
by Ivonne from Nashua, NH
January 20, 2019
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.
The Service was good and the car is beautiful. Phillips matched a TruCar offer so it was a good deal. Easy to work with and no pressure in the buying phase.
Superior for low back & mobility issues.
by MartiJP from Dayton, Ohio

This car met our family needs. Gas mileage is very good for commuting and very supportive for passenger comfort. Wide doors for easy entry for physically impaired passengers, and loads of leg room. Although better than most, the thickness of the descending support for the right arm rest puts uncomfortable pressure on lateral knee bone. Must adjust seat to partially avoid.
From the moment we walked onto the lot, until we left the dealership, the service was outstanding. It began with Candice in Internet Sales, handing us over to the nicest sales person I had met in all the dealerships that I had been to in the previous months. This person is Mr. Joe MAC. He helped us find a vehicle that had everything we were looking for and within the budget we wanted. Very straight forward, patient and answered all of our questions in a calm manner We never felt any pressure and am very grateful that we had him as our sales person. If you are looking for good service, Joe MAC is your guy!
Suabru can't go wrong
by Jitendra from Monmouth Junction

Excellent car for safety and performance. A repeat buyer.
Subaru has added latest safety features like Blind Spot Monitor, RAB, Land Departure warning and Excelent Sound System.
I went into the dealership the other day and Brent helped me with financing. He really knew what he was talking about and he worked pretty fast, if I go back i'm definitely requesting him again. 10/10 would recommend.
Most fuel effecient SUV I've ever owned.
by Old.Jedi from Portage, MI

This SUV is a great vehicle for the money, and is extremely comfortable on long road trips. It has a smooth ride with ample power for around town use. I would have preferred an analog fuel gauge instead of the digital one.
