SUBARU TAKES TOP HONOR IN 2021 ALG RESIDUAL VALUE AWARDS


 
Subaru has been named the 2021 Top Mainstream Brand for Residual Value from the ALG Residual Value Awards. ALG, the analytics division of TrueCar Inc., serves as the industry benchmark for forecasting vehicle values and depreciation data. With the latest award, Subaru is a five-time top brand for residual value, having taken home the honor in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and now 2021. 
 
In addition to the Residual Value Award honor, four Subaru models received top recognition in their respective segments. 
 
Subaru has a proven track record when it comes to industry-leading residual values and the brand has shown consumers that their strong vehicle line-up is supported by vehicles that hold their value,” said Eric Lyman, Chief Industry Analyst at ALG. [1]
 
The ALG Residual Value Awards recognized vehicles in 29 segments predicted to maintain the highest percentage of the Manufacturers’ Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) after three years. Alongside vehicle accolades, ALG selected two brands for overall Mainstream and Premium industry sectors. Based on the 2021 model year, selected winners are determined after ALG utilizes a forecast model that looks at various macro, industry, segment, and vehicle factors. 
 
Time and again, car-buyers choose Subaru for the value, reliability, and safety that each vehicle promises. Customers know they can count on Subaru vehicles to last through the seasons of their lives. Winning the Top Brand for Residual Value Award, for a fifth year, is a testament to the love and care Subaru puts into building their cars.

Blanket Donation to Youth Services of Tulsa, in Honor of National Homeless Youth Awareness Month

In the United States, many Americans are living on the edge, forced to choose between necessities like purchasing food, paying rent or going to the doctor. 549,000 Americans are homeless on a typical night. Many of these Americans call the streets of Tulsa home.
 
In a recent Public Radio Tulsa article, written by Matt Trotter, the City of Tulsa's Housing Policy Director, Becky Gligo, is quoted as saying, "our homelessness numbers are continuing to rise — not astronomically, but they’re on the rise." [1] The article goes on to say that the projected number of people who are homeless, in Tulsa, is close to 7,000.
 
Ferguson Subaru believes in being more than a car dealership. We are dedicated to supporting organizations that help our neighbors and our community members in need. As we head into the season of giving and the nights get colder, we wanted to do our part to provide warmth and solace for those who need our help this winter.
 
The Ferguson Subaru team delivered several cases of new blankets to Youth Services of Tulsa, on November 13. Youth Services of Tulsa (YST) will distribute those blankets to the teens and young adults who turn to its innovative Street Outreach program for assistance with basic needs and resources to help them exit homelessness.

"Thanks to the generosity of Ferguson Subaru in Tulsa, Oklahoma, dozens of young people experiencing homelessness will receive new blankets to help them through the coming winter months," said YST's Community Relations Coordinator, Brian Young. 
 
Our donations to YST is part of Subaru Of America's bigger Subaru Loves to Help initiative. Through this initiative, Subaru and its participating retailers [including Ferguson Subaru] will donate 50,000 blankets to homeless shelters across the country this November. The donation, which will reach nearly 600 local homeless shelters, is also in recognition of National Homeless Youth Awareness Month.

Subaru Awarded “Best Brand Loyalty" in the Automotive Industry, Two Years in a Row

Subaru has been awarded the 2020 J.D. Power Best Brand Loyalty Award for the second consecutive year. Subaru was ranked highest among mass market brands, beating out all other mass market automakers. Subaru ranked highest in its segment based on the automaker’s reputation for bringing safety, trust, and value to the forefront of car shopping. 

The 2020 U.S. Automotive Brand Loyalty Study calculations are based on transaction data from June 2019 through May 2020 and include all model years traded in. Customer loyalty is based on the percentage of vehicle owners who choose the same brand when trading in or purchasing their next vehicle. Once brand loyalty is established, customers will presumably recommend the auto brand to other friends and family. 

This award, from J.D. Power, is a testament to Subaru's commitment to manufacture reliability and capability vehicles — in-turn, building trust with their customers. Ferguson Subaru is equally committed to building trust with our customers. At our Tulsa Metro dealership, we pride ourselves in straight forward, no nonsense, and transparent dealings with our customers. We remain grateful for our customers choosing us as their first choice for their automotive needs.
