We recently bought from Village Subaru and the experience was flawless. Erik Holm was delightful to work with. He had the most competitive price among 8 dealerships we reached out to. Eric found the car matching our specs within a day and threw in for free a few accessories that came with the car that we hadn’t asked for. All the negotiations were over email and on the pickup day Erik had all the paperwork ready and we were able to leave with our purchase in less than an hour. We highly recommend Erik and Village Subaru if you are in the market for a car.
Basically a good vehicle with bothersome flaws
by Daktuh from Harrisville, NH

Mechanically sound, good fit and finish. Excellent fuel economy for an awd suv, excellent safety assist features (Eyesight)
Horrendous user interface for all infotainment - I have never sworn so much at a car - all electronic controls were counter intuitive. Some were just plain stupid such as when putting car in reverse, as rear view camera comes on there is no way to mute stereo which is set at same level/station as when the car was last turned off! Even the window controls operated the opposite way I have been accustomed (down position of switch feels like it should be up, etc.)
Another con, I found the seat cushions to be too short (inadequate length under thigh towards the knee) for long trips.
Very odd that a car that could have been so good, struck out in such basic, easily correctable ways. They should fire their electronics designer and borrow some seat ergonomics know-how from the Swedes or Germans - and they will have a very good car!
Acton Toyota stands out as easily the most pleasant car buying experience my wife and I have had. Steve Kiviat was extremely pleasant to work with, answered all of our questions about the car, and was completely transparent throughout the entire experience. He was recommended to us, and he did not disappoint. I will definitely recommend Acton Toyota and Steve to any friends or family interested in a buying or leasing a Toyota.
So far so good

Owned the car for a short time so cannot comment on longevity of reliability. However, the Outback is a practical and versatile vehicle, comfortable and reasonable on fuel. Few gripes include, no mirror link to connect to android, which seems like a total waste of a big screen to not be able to mirror google maps or waze, and starlink is useless. No LED daytime lights, but side lights are LED, odd setup. Noisy upon start up, sounds like a diesel. Stock battery is underpowered and sluggish in cold weather. Good points are, comfortable on the highway with low road noise and reasonable pick up, feels safe and solid. Lots of interior cargo space and option of extra roof space with the convenience of built in roof bars. Moonroof and heated seats are also a nice option. Back up camera is good but would have liked rear sensors as the car is quite long. Pleased with the car and hopefully it will prove to be a reliable vehicle in the long run.
It met all my expectations! I absolutely love it! The ride is so comfortable for the driver and riders. The heated seats are perfect for this weather. I have nothing negative to say. I just wish I could have purchased a new one!
Tania and Walter: Deb and I can not thank you enough for making our car buying experience so much fun and so easy. You are truly a wonderful person. Colonial is extremely lucky to have representatives like you. We wish you the best in everything you do and thank you so much for making our time car shopping so much fun.

While it's not the most eye-catching or fun car on the road, it certainly is very practical and a great bang for the buck. Great in the snow, good on gas and very roomy inside.

Test drive of an outback
by Paul from Sandy
January 20, 2019
Great potential vehicle unless you have very tall people. The vehicle lacked leg room in the second seat if the driver seat is all the way back. The lane assist feature is great along with the four wheel drive system. I looked carefully at purchasing this car until we hit the leg room issue.
Al Pagliarulo was excellent to work with on the purchase of my 2019 Forrester Limited which I picked up yesterday. This is my first Subaru so I had lots of questions before I purchased the car, did 3 test drives, and had lots of questions when I picked up the car to be sure I knew how to work everything. Throughout the process Al was professional, no pressure, and answered all my questions. In general, I was pleased to find the atmosphere at Patrick friendly and respectful. I liked being greeted by the sales manager Susan whenever I walked in. All the staff seem to work well as a team. None of the craziness and hard sell you find at other places. I LOVE my new Subaru! It was a great choice for me!
Nice vehicle, we like it.

Our 2017 Subaru Outback limited 2.5 has been a very practical and reliable vehicle for us. Extremely safe with eyesight safety suite. However, the interior needs to be a bit more luxurious. The engine, road and wind noise were basically unacceptable. I remedied that by extensive soundproofing on teh doors, floor and cargo area.
After reading reviews of Joe Dinneen -- some from customers who had purchased multiple cars from him -- on this DealerRater website, I specifically made an appointment with Joe. Initially, I was interested in more than one Subaru model, and Joe seemed genuinely interested in finding the right "fit" for me. Throughout my purchase of a 2019 Crosstrek, Joe was very respectful, low-pressure, and extremely responsive to my questions and emails. Tri Le handled the paperwork upon delivery and was also very low-pressure as I declined extra services. I did not finance.

This Vehicle has done everything iv'e asked of it and has never let me down.To me the styling is excellant and interior is greatAll the conveinaces this Veh. has far exceeds my wants and needs
Al Pagliarulo is a man of his word and delivered on all his promises when I purchased a pre-owned vehicle today (11-29-2018). He was very knowledgeable, polite and a consummate professional. No high pressure sales tactics or the like. His employer Patrick Motors also has no hassle policy and NO bait and switch tactics. I hope the car, which so far I love, gives me many years of pleasure. I would definitely do business again with Al P. and his company Patrick Motors of Shrewsbury. Thank you Al. John P. Maruca
Very nice car to drive.

Car meets all our needs. Very good gas mileage. Very roomy in front and back seats. The area behind the back seat has plenty of room when we go grocery shopping.

I don't even live in New Hampshire state. I was visiting a friend of mine, for a birthday party & since I was in the market for a Accord ; my friend suggested we take a quick look at the dealership that was just two miles from his place. I was greeted by one of the managers & handed over to Mike. From the beginning he was very open about the pricing & what he can sell the car for. The fact of the matter is he called on the phone another dealer I had seen earlier, to compare the charges with me listing in, never seen anyone do that before. If you known what exactly you want & have a fair price in mind, my two cents is these guy will most of the time meet it or beat it. Thanks Mike for all the help. Happy Holidays to you & your family.
New Car Purchase
by Marie from Bishopville, MD.
January 30, 2019
Just purchased this car but I can tell you it rides smoothly and is comfortable. Just learning about all the improvements to cars since our last car purchase but it looks harder than it is. Looking forward to driving this car for years to come.
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.

Comfortable ride,love the adjustable seat that fits me perfectly. Very quiet. Every amenity you could possibly need. Safety features sold me on this vehicle. Sound system is great.
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.
Great car, good gas mileage and very comfortable.

I thought this vehicle was a great car for the value. It drives well, and has great "get up and go." It's a great family vehicle, and has plenty of cargo space for all of the gear hauling you do as a parent or active person!
Purchased New Forester. Purchased first forester here 2003, Impreza 2012. Always courteous and went beyond expectations, from Cooperstein in sales and Paul in service in 2003 to Yvonne in service and Kim and Scott in sales in 2018.
Powerful and comfortable and stylish
by GennyK from Del Haven NJ,
December 29, 2018
Comfortable and smart interior, sporty handling. Looks good on the outside, plenty of space in trunk, seats fold down very easily. Good all round visibility
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!
I love my Pearl.
by Laura from Tampa
January 26, 2019
I drove my Pearl across the country from California to Tampa Florida, with no issues! Dependable/reliable and durable. Pearl was love at first site and thanks to the folks at Capitol Subaru, California I was able to finance my Subaru, with not stellar credit they helped. Now my car is fully paid for and I love my Outback. I got my son to buy his own 2016 Subaru!
I dealt with Franco, who was very helpful and respectful. When I needed help after taking the car home Franco graciously answered all my questions. I feel comfortable asking Franco for help which is very important to me. Everyone I came in contact with at the Dealership was knowledgeable and respectful. A very positive experience all around.
Have only owned vehicle for a few days
by MaryGMA from Ashford Wa
January 23, 2019
Very well accessorized. Really too many bells and whistles for my need.
Someone that is younger and more into cities and technology with cell phones will appreciate what this car has to offer. I personally will probably never use all of the gadgets.
Timely and professional, would not go any place else. Even bought my Subaru there because I was treated so well when I brought in my son’s Subaru for repair. I always recommend them to people I know.
Love this car!
by Pam from Georgetown MA
January 26, 2019
I bought this car because I was looking for a 4wd that could tow at least 3000 lbs if needed. I’ve owned this car for approx three years and I use it to drive to work and up to visit my friends in Maine. It is extremely reliable with loads of interior room for all transport needs. I highly recommend this auto.
My family has been using North End motors to buy the cars for our family members for years now. It is always a great experience from start to finish. We always reach out to work with John Fernandes every time we go. He truly listens and pays attention to detail when you describe what you???re looking for, goes over all questions you might have and you never feel pressured to purchase. He definitely puts the customer first to make sure they are happy and get what they need as smoothly as possible. Highly recommend!
Great car for commuting and heading for adventure
by Marty from Seattle, WA
January 3, 2019
This is my adventure car. It is great in the rain and snow and for heading to the mountain trails. The ground clearance is great for the rough mountain roads. Love it.
I took my car to Kelly Ford for service today. Oil change, tire rotation etc. Brian and his staff took care of it very efficiently. He explained everything and made sure I was informed of the progress. I will definitely be returning to service my vehicle.
All around competent performer
by OldDog from Salem,MA
January 22, 2019
Decent value for the money. Superb AWD. Good quality materials used in interior. Mileage in the 6cyl is so-so. But better performance makes it worth it. Quality issues with the high end head units, and a recall for gas gauge being off by 1/8th tank.
