Subaru Supports National Car Care Month with FREE Clinics


Nationwide focus on vehicle maintenance and repair a focus in April

CHERRY HILL, NJ - April 4, 2006: Subaru of America, Inc. announced yesterday its support of National Car Care Month, a nationwide effort by businesses, civic groups, the government and the media to focus motorists' attention on the need to maintain and repair their cars.

"Subaru proudly supports the Car Care Council's effort to educate consumers on the benefits of taking care of their vehicles," said Jim Sinclair, vice president, Service, Subaru of America, Inc. "The Subaru car care clinics will be a great opportunity for owners to have their vehicles inspected at no charge and any maintenance needs brought to their attention. Proper vehicle maintenance ensures the vehicle's most fuel efficient performance, and we know that is top of mind for many Subaru customers."

Starting in April and continuing through the spring, Subaru is working with its dealers that are hosting free car care clinics for owners of Subaru vehicles. Subaru owners are encouraged to bring their vehicles into participating local dealerships for a free professional diagnostic inspection with no obligation. The inspection includes a check-up of all major operating systems with a written report of the vehicle's condition.

The Car Care Council, a non-profit organization created over 25 years ago, promotes National Car Care Month in April and Fall Car Care Month in October. The goal of the organization is to educate motorists about the benefits of proper vehicle maintenance.

April is a perfect time for motorists to get their cars properly serviced before summer vacations and after the harsher winter months. Through this nationwide event, the Car Care Council aims to improve highway safety, air quality and fuel conservation.

Subaru owners should contact their local Subaru dealers for available clinic dates and times. Owners can contact 1-800-SUBARU-3 or visit to locate their nearest Subaru dealer.
