I just want to say that academy Honda was a very straight forward dealership when it came to pricing and their service was great . I came in originally to purchase a used Honda Accord and ended up leaving with a new accord and couldn???t be happier ! Bryan was very easy to work with and went over all the features of the new car with me .
Have only owned vehicle for a few days

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.
Great experience. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Friendly sales staff and smooth process. Very knowledgeable about the vehicle and overall process. Great job
I Love this Car
by JoanEP from El Paso, TX

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.

Frank got back to me immediately and was able to give me a clear, honest offer within a day. I had the best closing experience ever on my Forester lease. The paperwork was prepared in advance, I just walked in, signed and left with my vehicle, exactly as expected. I have dealt with many dealerships in the past, having purchased or lease many cars. This experience was, by far, the best one I have ever had. I am a real customer. I would definitely come back again for my next vehicle. This is a class act dealership. Thank you.
Great car, good gas mileage and very comfortable.

The dealership it???s self and the staff working here are the best! Amazing help from all staff, even taking me to the bank to get the check.
My fourth Subaru
by Jillo from Corry, PA

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!
Our son needed a car and had expressed interest in a Subaru Legacy. We had visited another dealerships but felt most comfortable here even though Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru was a distance from home. Glen was helpful, patient and made the experience a good one. It was our second time at the dealership with Glen to review our options of used versus new car purchase. We love that our son will be in a safe vehicle and he's excited to own his first car.
I love my Pearl.

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!
Gary Mendelsohn was honest, very helpful and easy to deal with. I purchased a 2019 Forester from Gary Their finance dept. was very helpful, they contacted Subaru of America to find an Owner Loyalty coupon in the amount of $ 500.00 that I couldn't find.

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.
I was looking at a number of cars and dealers. Gary at Bill Kolb was great! The people at this dealership were honest as d easy to deal with. Highly recommend them!
Basically a good vehicle with bothersome flaws
by Daktuh from Harrisville, NH
December 23, 2018
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!
I recently went to Subaru to test drive the Forester and the Outback with intentions of trading in my mini van. The staff were pleasant and quick to serve us. Once introduced to Howard Bonfield, he asked some questions to ascertain what type of vehicle and features I was looking for. Howard is very knowledgeable of the Subaru product and explained differences of many aspects of the vehicles. The test drive was most important and helped me make my decision. The purchasing process was easy and when I returned to pick my car, Howard reviewed everything on paper and also directly within the vehicle. I drove out of the Subaru dealership very confiddant that I made the best decision on this purchase.
All around competent performer
by OldDog from Salem,MA

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.
Our Sales Consultant did an outstanding job of explaining all of the features of the vehicle we purchased, a Forester. He did it when we first walked in, when we did the test drive, and when the dealer was turning the vehicle over to us. He came in on his regular day off to turn the vehicle over to us. The dealer needs to enlarge his facility, which is very busy, and they have plans to do so in the near future by relocating the service department to a separate nearby building which will allow them to outfit a bigger showroom. I will have to get used to the no-haggle pricing arrangement which I believe was bona fide but can you really ever know, but it definitely is a step in the right direction. MSRP versus invoice has always been too much of a moving target which has depended on one's price knowledge and negotiating skills. I gave four stars for pricing, not five, because I don't really know if it was the best possible pricing but it was reasonable. I bought the car for safety, AWD as a standard, reliability ratings and fuel economy. It looks great also. I don't know why the Forester is classified as a compact. It seems spacious.
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.
Bill Kolb Jr was a great experience for getting a Subaru. The sales people are knowledgeable. They wanted me to get the car I wanted and not something more expensive or something that was on the lot already. When they realized I needed the car before Thanksgiving they pulled out all the stops and got the car ready for me as soon as possible. The financial staff was incredibly helpful and straightforward. When I get another Subaru I will go here.

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!
The dealership's no-haggling pricing on used cars and salesman Howard Bonfield's straightforward and informative attitude made my used car purchase fast and easy. The price I paid for the car was lower than competing area dealers. If you are in the market for a used Subaru, they have a great selection and very competitive pricing.
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.
When we walked into Bill Kolb Subaru we were very fortunate to meet salesperson Howard Bonfield. We explained what we were looking for in a used car. Than he said I will bring you the car you want and he did. When he appraised our used outback for trade in, we looked it over together and we agreed on a very fair price for me. Howard was extremely knowable and went above and beyond answering our questioned. The finance person also was excellent to deal with. There was no pressure at this dealership. Howard placed us in a fantastic used outback limited with all of the safety features. We enjoyed our buying experience with kiln Subaru, all very capable people taking good care of their customers.
Reliable and practical mountain vehicle
by subarusnowboarder from Denver, CO

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.
I previously bought 3 subaru's from Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru, then bought a 2018 Honda CRV, very unhappy so I went back to Bill Kolb Jr. Subaru and bought a 2019 Subaru Forester. I felt like I was home again !!! I was only gone for 6 months but it felt like a lifetime. Joe Postighone sales manager, Marty in finance, Howard, my salesman, Nixon and Gregory in service all accepted me with open arms. This is the best dealer that I have ever dealt with. They are knowledgeable, friendly, honest, and give the best service. They are thorough when you go in for any type of service. They treat you like FAMILY !!! I feel so much safer in my Subaru then I did in the CRV. I would recommend this dealer to everyone.

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
First time owner of a Subaru, but I had heard they were safe and reliable. Purchased a 2016 used Outback. I love everything about it, and I love the customer service by Subaru and the local dealership. Plus, one of the safest cars on the road. I love the driving experience.
I would like to thank both Dennis McWeeney and Tara Mullins for making my transition from a 2016 Crosstrek to a 2019 Crosstrek both seamless and pleasant. Having worked with Dennis before, I knew what to expect and he came through for me. With her knowledge of the vehicles, Tara easily took me through the changes in the cars and she did it in a fun way.
Been waiting for this car
by MoonChild827 from Yakima, WA

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.
Great car buying experience! Josh was able to get me the exact car I was looking for in a tight situation. Josh, Nicole, and Joe were knowledgeable and professional throughout the whole process.
I feel secure in my Outback.

This car is superb in snow. I have to drive to a hospital for work and need a reliable vehicle. I have found comfort, ease of driving, and security in this SUV. I highly recommend it.
