The last snow fall has been plowed away, and now it’s time to start planning your spring road trip! To wash away the winter dirt and grime from your car and prepare for the spring, we consulted with autoMedia.com for some After-Winter Car Care tips.
Clean it up: Wash away the salt residue and dirty streaks with a good car wash. Make sure to target important areas like the underbody, around the front and rear bumpers and wheel wells. While you are taking care of this dirty task, check for any rust damage.
Tires: Excessive snow and ice can wreck havoc on your tires, so make sure to check the tread and tire pressure. Also, even if you don’t need new tires, make sure to get them rotated. Right now we have a special for a free tire rotation.
Brakes: Makes sure to have your brakes inspected by a professional. They play a huge role in keeping you safe during the winter and we want that to continue through the spring and summer. At Hassett Automotive, we are also having a special for a free brake inspection.
Battery: Unless you enjoy being stranded, you should get your battery checked. Winter weather takes a toll on many of the battery components. Stop by our dealership for a free battery testing.
Stop by our dealership to take advantage of our great offers and have your vehicle inspected today. Our staff here at Hassett Automotive hopes you stay safe on the roads this spring!
Every December Subaru does a sales event called the “Share the Love” event. Some of you have probably heard about this event, but just in case you haven’t, let us tell you! Basically, Subaru has five charities picked out that they will donate $250 to for every vehicle purchased or leased while the “Share the Love” Event is going on. Those charities are the Alzheimer’s Association, ASPCA, the Make a Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels, and the USO.
And now, thanks to more than 100,000 new owners and over 620 Subaru dealerships, Subaru has now donated nearly $25 million to charity!
Hassett Automotive is proud to have been a part of this great accomplishment, and we would like to thank everyone that purchased or leased a new Subaru from Hassett Subaru during the “Share the Love” Event. Because of you and the choice that you made, someone’s day was made a little brighter. We’re already looking forward to being a part of this great event later this year!
If you’re interested in learning more about this event, or if you have any questions about a Subaru vehicle, feel free to stop by Hassett Automotive, or give us a call at 866-525-9066.
Just last month at the LA Auto show, Subaru unveiled the 2014 Forester (see some pictures, here). This new small SUV has everything you love about Subaru, including the legendary Subaru Boxer engine, but now it’s even greener! According to Subaru’s website, “Subaru Forester has always embodied the right-sized power, control and versatility that owners love. Now, it also represents a green-minded, fuel-efficient small SUV, as the 2014 Subaru Forester is a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle and built in a zero-landfill plant.”
You can expect to see the all new 2014 Subaru Forester at Hassett sometime next year.
However, if you just can’t wait that long to have a Forester in the garage, we have plenty of 2013’s on out car lot right now! Some of the key features in the 2013 model include symmetrical all-wheel drive, up to 8.9 inches of ground clearance, Vehicle Dynamics Control, and available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights. Oh, and did we mention it gets 27 miles per gallon on the highway?
If you’re interested in taking a 2013 Forester (or any other Subaru for that matter) for a test drive, stop by Hassett of Wantagh. We’d be happy to help you find the car of your dreams!
