Tomohiko Ikeda, president and CEO of Subaru of America, Inc. honored five dealers celebrating their 25th anniversary with the franchise at the Subaru National Business Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“On behalf of Subaru of America, I’d like to congratulate our dealers who have celebrated twenty-five years with Subaru,” said Tim Colbeck, vice president of sales for Subaru of America, Inc. “The commitment our dealers make to the core values of the Subaru brand has resulted in the Company having some of the highest owner loyalty rates in the business.”

The following dealers were recognized for 25 years with Subaru:

  • Southern Oregon Subaru, Medford, Ore.
  • South Shore Subaru, South Lake Tahoe, Calif.
  • Dan Perkins Subaru, Milford, Conn.
  • Bowser Subaru, Pittsburgh, Pa.
  • The Car Store, Norwich, Vt.

Now featured at Subaru Dealers nationwide is the completely redesigned, bolder, more SUV-like 2009 Subaru Forester. The 2009 Subaru Forester comes with standard All-Wheel Drive, is pre-wired for XM(R) or SIRIUS(R) Satellite Radio and now has a longer wheelbase which yields improved interior roominess and ride quality.
