2019 Subaru Share The Love Event | Ferguson Subaru


Today marks the start of the twelfth year of the Subaru Share The Love Event. The Subaru Share the Love Event was established in 2008 by Subaru of America as a way to bring Subaru owners together to make a difference in their community. 

Subaru and participating retailers [such as Ferguson Subaru] have donated a total of more than $145 million to a variety of national and hometown charities through the Share the Love Event. 

The 2019 Subaru Share the Love Event will run from November 14, 2019 to January 2, 2020. During the event, Subaru of America will donate $250, for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased, to a charity of the customer’s choice. 

Customers who purchase or lease their new Subaru at Ferguson Subaru, during the event can choose to have their donation go to one of four national charities or one local Oklahoma charity. 

The four national charities that can be selected include: 
• The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) 
• Make-A-Wish® 
• Meals on Wheels America 
• National Park Foundation 

In addition to the four national charities listed above, Ferguson Subaru customers have the choice of donating to one Oklahoma charity - Hope Is Alive. Ferguson Subaru has teamed up with Hope is Alive for the third year in a row for the Subaru Share The Love Event. 





Hope is Alive is a wonderful, life-changing, Oklahoma based non-profit. Hope is Alive exists to radically change the lives of drug addicts, alcoholics and those that love them; to inspire hope, build foundations and change the lives of people affected by addiction. 

Hope is Alive provides specialized one-of- a-kind opportunities to men and women who are ready to take their recovery to the next level. Hope Is Alive has rehabilitation homes across Oklahoma (including Oklahoma City, and Tulsa), Kansas, and North Carolina. You can learn more about Hope Is Alive at: hopeisalive.net

Through last year's Share The Love Event, Ferguson Subaru was able to donate over $33,500 to Hope Is Alive! 



Ferguson Subaru will donate $50 to Hope Is Alive for every new Subaru purchase or leased, during the Share the Love Event; regardless of if the customer chooses Hope Is Alive as their charity or not. 

If a customer does choose Hope Is Alive, Hope Is Alive will receive a $300 total donation - $250 from Subaru Of America [on behalf of the customer] and $50 from Ferguson Subaru. Additionally, for every Subaru vehicle routine service visit during the Share the Love Event, Ferguson Subaru will donate $5 to Hope Is Alive. 

We are proud to partner with Hope Is Alive during this year’s Subaru Share the Love Event to support their work to radically change the lives of drug addicts, alcoholics, and those who love them. Get a great vehicle and support a great cause, during the 2019 Subaru Share The Love Event, at Ferguson Subaru.

Subaru Ranks Highest Overall in J.D. Power Automotive Brand Loyalty Study

Subaru, as a brand, is renowned for its vehicle reliability. In fact, 97% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today. This commitment to high-quality, reliable vehicles has resulted in numerous awards and accolades, for the brand. 

A few of those awards include Kelley Blue Book's 2019 Most Trusted Brand, and the top spot in owner satisfaction, according to the American Consumer Satisfaction Index. Subaru can now add one more accolade to their belt. Subaru has ranked highest overall in J.D. Power's 2019 Automotive Brand Loyalty Study.

 

The Automotive Brand Loyalty Study calculates whether an owner purchased the same brand after trading in an existing vehicle on a new vehicle purchase or lease. Customer loyalty is based on the percentage of vehicle owners who choose the same brand when trading in or purchasing their next vehicle. [1]

In an article by Automotive News, Tyson Jominy, vice president of data and analytics at J.D. Power, had the following to say about Subaru's latest achievement, "Subaru meets its owners where they are and provides reliable and affordable transportation. In many ways, Subaru transcends economics. Celebrities, academics, outdoorsy types, your cousin back east all drive Subaru. But in reality only one Subaru model even starts above $30,000 MSRP -- the recently launched Ascent. The rest are all $27,000 or below." [2]

Here at Ferguson Subaru, we believe in the product we sell, and greatly appreciate our customers’ loyalty to the Subaru brand. If you haven’t tried a Subaru before, come see us and see what it’s all about! Ferguson Subaru is Northeast Oklahoma's premier Subaru dealer.
