It’s Been A Wild (But, Safe and Reliable) Ride!

We have been immensely proud to represent Subaru’s safety, reliability, and practicality, over the years, not to mention its’ growth. However, it’s now official: Subaru Is Sexy.

Subaru Growth | Budds' Subaru

Subaru is seeing it’s best growth ever as it aims for its 6th consecutive annual sales record. This is the only brand to achieve that feat. Subaru has also marked 33 straight months of sales growth. In response, the Japanese automaker has re-adjusted its 2014 sales forecast to 500,000 vehicles, which is a major milestone. Subaru ranks ahead of GMC, Volkswagen, and Mercedes-Benz in year-to-date sales, just to name a few.

Subaru’s rock-solid reputation has been the foundation for success across the lineup, but exploding demand for compact and mid-size “crossover” SUVs has been the real catalyst.

The segment-leading Subaru Forester leads the pack with 105,356 units sold, and the Subaru Outback trails only slightly with 85,951 units sold.

Subaru BRZ Takes Home An “All-Star” Award From Automobile Magazine

For the second year in a row, the Subaru BRZ was named an All-Star by the American publication, Automobile Magazine – that’s one spot to our rear-wheel drive coupe out of the ten allotted special statuses. We are thrilled to announce this accolade to the BRZ name, as it’s also one of our favorites in the line-up.

All-STAR BRZ

All-Star: BRZ | Budds' Subaru

Right now, it’s all about bang for your buck, and the BRZ gets you sports coupe for a great price. We have two silver BRZ’s in stock at the moment, ready to take you into the summer – which we call the Silver Twins.

In case you aren’t ready just yet to jump on this opportunity, let us tell you a bit more about the BRZ…

Our Take On It

“The Subaru BRZ is among the few modern cars you can enjoy driving at the limit without losing your license. It’s a hoot to drive. It has a perfectly balanced, rear-wheel-drive chassis and perfectly placed controls. On top of all that, it doesn’t cost a fortune to buy or operate. No wonder it’s an Automobile Magazine All-Star for the second year in a row.”
Jean Jennings, Editor-In-Chief of Automobile Magazine

“The BRZ is the quintessential sports car at a price point that makes it inclusive to anyone looking for affordable all out fun. With the handling of a go cart, one of the smoothest transmissions on the market, and the lines of sport cars costing multiples of the BRZ, it remains the choice of enthusiasts everywhere.”
Terry Budd, Budds’ Subaru Dealer Principle

“Personally, I love the look of the BRZ, how low it is. The fact that it has sporty handling is just a bonus.”
Shelley, Social Media Manager

“For the price you can’t go wrong. I’d buy a grey one.”
David, Lot Manager

“It’s sharp and it feels like you’re glued to the floor on turns, it’s awesome.” Matty, Lot Attendant

“I laugh when I hear people say “why did Subaru make a Rear wheel drive vehicle?”. They obviously haven’t had the chance to drive it. Having Subaru’s proven reliability combined with a Subaru boxer engine and rear wheel drive drivetrain?… It’s really a no brainer!”
Dave, Certified Technician

Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid Ready

Excitement has been building for the arrival of the brand new Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid! You can be the one to run on less gas this year, while getting all of the features you already love in a Subaru, like safety and AWD capabilities.

Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid

Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid Ready | Budds' Subaru

Our brand new Hybrid has arrived, and now it is ready to hit the roads. The all-new  Crosstrek Hybrid at Budds’ is available for test drives. Versatility is the name of the game with this CUV. It doesn’t matter if you want to take it up North or boot through the urban city-scape, the Crosstrek does it all.

Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid Arrival

Crosstrek Hybrid Arrival

Well folks, the new Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid has arrived and is currently being PDI’d so that it’s ready to drive.

We want to keep low km’s on our only Hybrid vehicle but we know it will be hard. We know our customers will want to try out Subaru’s new hybrid technology. The environment will thank us down the line for creating this technology, which Subaru spent lots of time doing.

XV Crosstrek Hybrid | Budds' Subaru

The engine runs off of gasoline if the battery is low. The battery charges itself off the energy of the vehicle, like braking, and will run on a combined engine when appropriate. It’s a step in the right direction given gas prices. We also know about the damages that CO2 emissions cause.

If you’re interested in testing it out, stay tuned for our video or come by for a test drive! This puppy will be on the road next week, if all goes well!

X-Mode – What is it? How does it work?

is theHave you ever had to start your car on an icy slope and ended up dangerously close to getting stuck? Try X-Mode (CVT Transmission only).

X-Mode In Forester | Budds' Subaru

Tetsuo Noda is the Assistant Manager in Total Vehicle Performance Integration Department at Subaru. He says: “X-Mode installed in the new Forester was developed with the underlying concept of ensuring that drivers of any skill level can drive safely on wet, muddy or icy areas.”

X-Mode Budds' Subaru

X-Mode isn’t available on all cars, only the new Forester. It sure helps tackle intense terrain like mud, steep descents, and anywhere that you might have less grip and control, or all four wheels are not on the regular road. At the press of a button, the vehicle becomes in-control during conditions that are difficult for an ordinary driver to evade.

Hill Descent
Turning X-mode on during hill descent means the system automatically applies the brakes to each wheel at a controlled speed, making your descent even and smooth. It maintains the speed that you set so you can concentrate on steering. You don’t have to worry about stepping on the brakes in error, causing a slide. Descents on X-Mode are smooth, giving you the confidence to continue your journey.

Separate X-Mode Feature For Inclines

Hill Holder
The Hill Holder System makes sure that when you are on a steep incline you can accomplish it safely and confidently. You will be free from all concerns of rolling backwards or stalling the engine. It controls the AWD system and keeps you in one place when no gas is applied. This prevents you from  sliding back into a position where there is no grip, allowing you to safely get up the hill.

X-Mode Forester In Mud | Budds' Subaru

How did they determine that this tool would get you out of a sticky situation quickly?

Subaru conducted repeated tests on all sorts of terrain. They tailored the system to create safe driving conditions out of the wildest road. Simply turn the system on and it takes control of your engine, transmission, AWD system, and brakes. During the testing faze, steep, unpaved inclines were used with icy patches. Slippery mud, or bumpy terrain where not all four wheels were on the ground was also used. Testing also took place on silver rollers, manufactured terrain with a surface that doesn’t change over repeated use. The Subaru Forester X-Mode would help maintain safe and secure completion over both. Nature made or man-made, the X-Mode and Hill Hold features in the Forester helps combat it all!
