Breaking a world record is quite the feat and something that a lot of people have on their bucket list. And well, now Subaru can check that one off the list! Earlier this month 371 Subaru owners got together in the village of Itasca, Illinois and broke the record for “Largest Parade of Subaru Cars.” Sure, it’s a little bit of a wacky record, but they did it!
According to a recent press release by Subaru, “On Saturday, July 13, 2013, 371 Subaru owners from nine states broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ record for the “Largest Parade of Subaru Cars” in the world. In addition to breaking the record, Subaru and parade participants supported two very worthy charities — PAWS Chicago and Salute, Inc. Both organizations received $5,000 to support their individual areas of philanthropy.”
So basically it was just a great day for everyone. Money was raised for two great causes, and a world record was broken. How cool is that?
If you’re interested in buying a Subaru so that you can take part in the next parade (if they ever want to raise the bar), stop by Hassett Automotive! We have lots of Subaru’s in stock and we would love to help you find the right one for you.

But that’s just a few of the many things you can do to make sure your car is good-to-go for the summer months. Today we’d like to take a second and go over a few more things you can do to make sure your car keeps running strong during the hottest time of the year.
