When I went looking for a Subaru Crosstrek in a hurry because my ailing husband could no longer get into his Audi, I filled out a Consumer Reports form to start my search. Out of the six responses I got within 15 hours, April Zanotti???s stood out because it was friendly, straightforward, and offered a choice of cars at a good price. Everything went smoothly: the right car, in the right color, at the right price, and on the right day. April was always smiling, cheerful and to the point. The trade in went smoothly. All April???s colleagues were equally friendly ??? even to our dog when he came with me! ??? and I cannot recommend this dealership highly enough for making the purchase of a car a pleasant and efficient experience from start to finish. Oh, and we are very pleased with the car too.
Heater Fan Reliability
by Working Electrical Design Engineer from Wallingford Connecticut

I have had 2 heater Fans in this car. Getting ready for third one now. To make things worse the Dealer cannot seem to fix it. According to the Manual this is not a safety defect. I completely disagree. Cannot defrost windshield or drive in cold weather with defective fan. Also
wheel Covers do not protect brakes from excessive corrosion or wear. Causes premature brake rework due to excessive exposure to road salt used in New England. . DO NOT BUY THIS CAR (2014 OUTBACK.)
I came in knowing what I wanted and Marc should me a car that matched. He added on some requested minor fixes and a few not so minor. He was very knowledgeable and efficient. It was a pleasure.
Been waiting for this car

I Love this car! I have looked for a Subaru Outback for almost 2 years and finally found the car I wanted! I have only had it a few days, but I am so happy with it already. I LOVE my heated seats, they come in handy in this cold weather. My visibility is awesome. I sit a bit higher than my last car and have no problem seeing clearly out of every window. The back-up camera comes in handy in those tight spots too! This vehicle handles like a dream! The AWD will come in handy when I am traveling for work also. I highly recommend a Subaru to anyone looking for a good, solid, reliable car.
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.
I Love this Car

I am very happy with my 2014 Outback. My previous 2013 Outback saved my life when I was T-boned by a large pickup truck that ran a red light. I was able to climb out of the car and walk away but sadly the car was a total loss. I think a different car might not have been sturdy enough to protect me so well. I immediately replaced it with the same car but the newer year. I also love the comfortable seats, the smooth ride and the fun Nav features. I’m a Subaru fan for life.
Robert, my salesman, was pleasant and knowledgeable. He also went the extra mile (no pun intended) to makes sure I could take a good test drive of the car I ended up buying. They registered the car for me in New York, where I live, and Robert even put the plates on for me. They were attentive to my e-mailed questions, and follow up was good. I only gave 4 stars for “Facilities” because it’s a small showroom. I would highly recommend them as a place to buy a new Subaru.
Avoid the 2013 Outback.

Prepare to replace random bulbs monthly due to undiagnosable electrical issue.
Prepare to have CVT transmission warranty work if under 100K miles OR tough luck after extended warranty expires.
Prepare to have oil usage warranty work up to 100k miles or tough luck after extended warranty expires.
Customer service through Subaru is hit and miss.
Don’t buy the ’Love’ hype.
When it comes to reliability and customer service, it’s closer to Chevy than Honda.
The handling in poor road conditions is superior, but this generation Outback lacks dependability.
Salesman Bob Ferrara help me setup my new phone with Bluetooth in my Subaru Forester. He was very patient with me. He also was very nice and polite.
Best all wheel drive system available
by Jean from Appleton, WI

This is a great family car. It has high safety ratings and is awesome at driving and handling in snow. By far the best all wheel drive system out there. It is also a very comfortable ride and has all the features I need (back up camera, navigation, Bluetooth, heated seats, etc)
Got internet price quote on the Subaru I wanted. The sales call was followed up by Diana Kalmykova , set up an appoitment for test drive. Diana was professional, listend to what I wanted and didn't try to over sell. Sales tranactions went smoothly and the price was right. I recommend this dealer for people looking to buy a Subaru in the tri-states area. By the way, Diana's boss - Jonathan came off as pretty arrogant in his communications but he turned out to be a good guy!
Reliable and versatile
by John from St. Peters

I bought this car new and now have around 75,000 miles on it. The Outback 2.5 is reliable and versatile. It gets good gas mileage for the size of this car and with all wheel drive. The HVAC system is louder than I would like but that might be better with the dual-zone climate control system. The top of the dash on the 2014 is hard plastic that reflects off the windshield at certain light. This was correct later on with a softer dash top.
I recently purchased a vehicle at Dan Perkins, and I can't say enough great things about my experience. I greatly dislike going to dealerships. If only I had known better-I would have come here first! Not only, was Adam Arsenault super helpful in explaining all my options, he showed me all the AWESOME details about the car, and he never pressured me to buy or try to sell me some gimmick. I am new to the Subaru family, and definitely see myself coming back. From start to finish, I was always greeted by friendly people and they all made the process easy and comfortable. Shout out to the very helpful and super nice lady in financing dept. who gave me even more peace of mind selecting coverage options!
Love my Outback

This car meets or exceeds my expectations in all categories. It's very comfortable, rides and handles very well, and gets very good mileage. It desn't perform like my BMWs or turbo Volvos, but that was expected. The Outback has plenty of interior space, especially the back seat leg & headroom, and all the bells and whistles I need.
This dealership is the best there is. I have family that had shopped here and it was highly recommended. I plan on buying Subaru's from here each time I look for a new car. I know Colonial is going to have what I need. I wish I could rate more than five stars.
New car breaks down, wanted to love it
by AllAroundOC from Irvine, CA

The outback had the makings for a decades long vehicle. Unfortunately, it had mechanical problems from the get go. The problems started getting serious. After only 4 years of owning it I faced a situation where the steering column would lock my keys into the ignition, and also I would have dangerously low oil 2 weeks after changing the oil. Of course, Subaru was extending the warranty for this issue on some of their other models, but not the Outback automatic. Tried to work with this, but they basically scammed me.
Everyone at Wiz Autos was wonderful ... Tom went out of his way to show me an Acadia Denali that wasn???t even on the lot yet! When I fell in love with it he went above and beyond to make sure it was safety checked, detailed, and even replaced a few things to make the Acadia absolutely perfect and ready for me to pick up the next day!! Meir made paying for the car so easy!! From start to finish the paperwork process of buying the car took less than 15 minutes!!! This was by far the best buying experience I???ve had ... I will absolutely be back and referring my friends!
Justin was very professional, knowledgeable and made the process quick, stress-free. I would highly recommend this dealership. Thanks so much for the great experience!
