CHERRY HILL, N.J., Sept. 29, 2008 - Subaru of America, Inc. announced today that the company is endorsing the Car Care Council's Fall Car Care Month, a nationwide October program focusing on the importance of regular vehicle maintenance. To celebrate the occasion, participating Subaru dealers are offering free vehicle diagnostic inspections to Subaru owners, emphasizing items that affect fuel economy and offering driving tips for optimizing fuel mileage.

"October is always a good time to ready your vehicle for the demands of winter driving," notes Jim Sinclair, Vice President, Service, Subaru of America, Inc. "And this year, the increased fuel efficiency that comes with a well-maintained vehicle is more important than ever."

To help owners get the best possible fuel mileage, dealers will be performing the "MPG Inspection." While the vehicles will receive a thorough check-up of all major operating systems, the MPG -- "Maintenance Preserves Gas" -- Inspection puts extra emphasis on the systems that can directly impact fuel mileage. Drivers will receive not only a written report of the vehicle's condition, but helpful driving tips for maximizing fuel efficiency.
