Since 2008, Share the Love has donated more than $94 million to charity, with customers choosing between four national and over 660 local charities! The team at Hassett is excited to play a part in helping these charities to reach their goals. The spirit of giving and helping others is in full effect, and with this many charities to choose from, there is no shortage of ways to help!

Pet Peeves is Hassett Subaru’s “Charity of Choice” for their Share The Love Event which will run from November through January 2, 2018. For every car sold during the “Share-the-Love” Event, $250 will be donated directly to one of five charities. Over the past two years, Hassett has donated $39,000 to Pet Peeves and we are hoping to raise even more this year!

Hassett Subaru is proud to be a sponsor and supporter of Pet Peeve’s mission on behalf of homeless and abused animals. The ongoing commitment of Subaru of America stays true to the Love Promise by partnering with a wide variety of nonprofits and charities, giving back to charities across the country.

Come down to Hassett Subaru for your new winter ride and make the world a better place in the process. Remember, this event ends January 2nd, so don’t wait too long!

Automatic or Manual Transmission? Don’t Be Afraid to Stick Out

automatic or manual transmissionEver considered driving a manual transmission car? In the US, only 6.5% of cars sold have been stick-shift, so the relative rarity may have some confused about the advantages to learning the process of getting your car in gear.

Aside from the thrill of weaving the stick through a gearbox on an open road while stomping on the clutch like Mario Andretti, there are some practical reasons to opt for a manual vehicle. One is that you have better control over the vehicle when you constantly control the gear of the car. This provides easy downshifting and engine-braking (and it’s not hard to learn).

One other factor is cost. Automatics tend to be slightly more expensive to buy and maintain and less efficient to operate. The reason is that a few more moving parts need to be installed, repaired, and require more engine power to operate. The total cost over the life of the car may add up to a few thousand dollars.

If you find yourself curious about a 6-speed manual Subaru, we at Hassett Automotive can show you the Outback, Legacy, Impreza, WRX, and Forester models that offer both automatic or manual transmission versions.
