JEEP Service at Santa Cruz Volkswagen Dodge Ram

Gregory Michael was a good, solid, well knowledged Service Representative. I had had a poor experience with JEEP in Gilroy so I tried this JEEP Service Center in Santa Cruz. Boy, what a difference! I had the personalized attention I needed, everything was well explained. And Gregory seemed genuinely thoughtful. I will come back for all my JEEP needs which you can provide. Thank you!

My 2nd Subaru Forester
by Dave in Mansfield from Mansfield, TXD
May 16, 2019

My 1st Forester is a 2009 turbocharged model which is still going strong with 110,000 miles. The newer Foresters offer safety and convenience features mine doesn't have so I decided to upgrade. The 2019 Forester no longer offers the turbocharged version so I opted for a certified pre-owned 2018 XT Touring which has a turbocharger. I love the vehicle but because the turbo is no longer available, the used turbo versions have become quite pricey. I am keeping the old one for hauling dogs, lawn equipment and towing my utility trailer. The new one will be just for people for now. The vehicle is just the right size. I am 6'4" and would appreciate a little more leg room and thigh support but the Forester is as comfortable as any other small SUV I checked. There is plenty of headroom. The turbo does require premium fuel and has a lower mileage rating. With the turbo and sports tuned suspension, it is a fun vehicle to drive and worth the money to me. In over 10 years, the older one left me stranded only once when a drive belt broke after 100,000 miles. Based on reviews, I expect the same reliability from the newer one.

Subaru is the new Volvo!

Have owned 2 Volvos and the company lost it's spark. Subaru has that spot in my heart now. From the 5 star crash rating (except front passenger seat is 4 star) to great reliability records and good tech stuff I am thrilled.

Great all around suv
by jrgrey from Liberty, PA
April 11, 2019

Excellent vision in all directions from the Forester. We like the no non-sense styling of the Touring 2.5i. Easy to get into and out of which matters if getting a few years on you. Very good gas mileage and handling with excellent performance. The AWD is certainly one of many key selling points. Fit and finish is excellent with very good reliability so far. We think it is a excellent SUV and would definitely purchase another Subaru SUV if needed.

Great service

I like the friendly, courteous atmosphere when I arrive to drop my car off for service. I worked with Chelsea and Steve to strategize my car needs and prioritize the work that needed to be done. I have been a Toyota of Santa Cruz customer since 1986 and until yesterday, except for tires my cars have only been serviced and repaired by your technicians. With Steves help yesterday now, even my tires are from Toyota of Santa Cruz. One stop shopping makes me happy! Chelsea is friendly, informative, listens, totally helpful, and happy. Steve always friendly, knows I love my car, doesn't over sell and prioritizes my cars needs. I really appreciate that. I always leave happy and satisfied and feeling safe with my car. Safety is a priority for me. Once again driving away from the dealership, spending $900. I feel like I had front row seats at a great concert!!!! Thank you Steve and Chelsea for your continued great service. My car feels brand new!!! No squishy brakes!

Not a big fan of 7" screens you can't turn off, or that squirrelly feeling when in a cross wind. Thank god this has nither issue. Love the moon roof, the heated seats, the night vision is dead on. The cd player is nice maybe dated but nice. Its more a suv then the older models- not sure if that's good or bad depending on your take i guess.

Great car!

This is a great vehicle and we're so glad that we purchased one. We've had a couple of minor things go wrong that should not have such as the drivers side visor starting to squeak loudly. All said we are very happy with this car. On the down side there is now standard technology out there that is not available. Automatic wipers are missing and items like remote start and subaru's safety and security package are extra when Honda includes them both free. But my biggest issue is not the car it's that there is no convenient dealersl or service anywhere near me. The nearest service is 45 minutes away. The next car will have to be available locally.

Earlier this month I purchased a new '17 Cad XT5 at Gilroy Chev/Cad in Gilroy, Ca. I must say I was treated like a "customer" by both salesman Marco Andrade and manager David Rodriquez. I was satisfied with both the trade-in value and the sales price. The paperwork took less than 45 min to complete the transaction. I would certainly recommend this GM dealership to anyone seeking courtesy and fair play.

I brought in my 2014 BMW i3 for an in-warranty service as my dashboard was showing a malfunction with airbag module. I was promptly assisted, given a loaner as the diagnosis and service would take more than a day. I was given updates every day at 5pm on the status. Although the actual service took 4 days, it did not bother me because I had a loaner, and also becoz I was kept updated on the status all throughout. A couple of days after the servicing was over, I got a call from my service advisor (John) asking me how my car was doing. I really appreciate that !

The car of the PNW for a reason
by PNW Subie Fanatic from Portland, OR
May 6, 2019

Solid and reliable car. You can take this car anywhere, whether up to the mountains or off the beaten path. Its comfortable and named CCR small SUV champion. It succeeds by focusing on the fundamentals with a space-efficient design, large windows, and big square doors. The result is the easiest access and the best view out of almost any vehicle tested. It also has one of the roomiest rear seats with copious amounts of head and leg room. It adapts various fuel-efficient technologies, including replacing the antiquated four-speed automatic transmission with a new continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Forester delivers quicker acceleration, as well as a class-leading 26 mpg overall and 35 mpg on the highway in our tests making it a solid adventure SUV or commuter.

I was able to get in next day service (awesome) on a 30k mile service on my 2016 Subaru Forester. Tons of available times to choose from, which is rare with other service departments. Josh was awesome. Went through my service history, explained what needed to be done thoroughly, and was spot on with the wait time estimate. I even asked him "is it REALLY going to be 2 hours? Or is it going to be more like 3?" He said no, his estimates are usually spot on, and what do you know, he was right. Just 4 stars for the small waiting area, but it can't be helped. There's free wifi, popcorn and coffee, and terrible TMZ on TV to entertain the masses.

I like the comfort and the visibility of this car. All who have ridden in it feel that it’s comfortable too. Love the eyesight package which gives warnings regarding blind spots and so forth. Find it very easy to parallel park. My only complaint is that the audio controls aren’t intuitive to use, at least for me.

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).

2017 Subaru Forester 2.5i Touring Review
Forester XT Touring or WRX on the down-low?
by Slagpit from Philadelphia, PA
February 6, 2019
5
Wanting something all wheel drive naturally leads you to Subaru. If you're looking for something with some off road capabilities but also a steady commuter with some room to spare, the Forester is the sweet spot. The 2019 generation Foresters are great, but they lack the punch of the older turbo options. With the same 250+ HP, 258 lb-ft torque engine in the WRX, the 2.0 L turbo shaves off over 2 seconds from the 0-60 time of the standard 2.5i engine. And it's noticeable. It gets knocked for being paired to CVT but I find it to be smooth and has great throttle response in Sport mode. Off road and in snow it does really well and lives up to the hype. A lot of reviews don't consider the Forester to be that stylish on the exterior, but I think that's ultimately a matter of preference. I find the exterior to be simple but muscular with the XT having a meaner front end. Inside there are some good upgrades which finally make the Forester feel a bit more luxury including leather seats and accents, a quieter interior and a decent sound system. The Harmon/Kardon sound system still leaves a lot to be desired, however. It's very bass heavy without a lot of refinement. Overall the Forester XT with Touring trim offers some nice amenities with still staying true to the rugged nature Subaru is known for. Pros: fun to drive (3 driving modes, paddle shifters), great visibility, great off road capabilities, roomy back seat and trunk, giant sunroof Cons: lower gas mileage, premium fuel recommended, lack of interior refinement, weak infotainment system

2017 Subaru Forester 2.5i Review
Good All-Purpose Car
by Alex from Brooklyn, NY
January 29, 2019
4
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.
