There is a lot to love about a Subaru

Keep what you love safe during the Subaru A Lot to Love event, now until March 31st!

Subaru and adventure are nearly synonymous, so much so that independent industry analysts such as Kelley Blue Book and Consumer Reports are recognizing and awarding the Subaru brand. There are reasons behind these distinctions such as engineering and safety - reasons why Subaru drivers love what their vehicles do for them.

Recycle With Us!

For the month of April, and continuing until the end of the year, Subaru is teaming up with TerraCycle to recycle hard-to-recycle waste in our dealership. Subaru is working hard to do our part in preserving the earth, which is why we bring this opportunity to you.

Why is the weather forecast never right?

This time last year I penned a blog detailing the amount of snowfall Johnstown receives yearly compared to other areas. In it, I gave a brief yet concise expository on the history of weather prediction. When I say brief, I mean about a Bachelor’s degree worth of information in two paragraphs. Nonetheless, lately I have heard numerous people comment on the efficacy of “the weatherman” and his predictions after temperatures ranged colder and snow…

Why do leaves change colors?

If you live in the north then you already know why fall is a fantastic time of year. First and foremost, the cooler temperatures are bearable with little extra clothing cover up, such as a sweater and pants, and the air conditioning can be placed into hibernation. Among other advantages this gives temporary reprieve from those ghastly air temperature control costs before the heat is switched on for winter. If you have children, then they…

A Few Flowers and Where Their Names Come From

It’s that time of year when we load up the trunks of our Outbacks, Foresters, and Crosstreks with mulch, soil, trowels and cultivators, seeds, plants, and flowers. The sun enters stage east earlier and earlier every morning and exits stage west much later into the evening now, giving lawn and garden aficionados plenty of time to harvest that perfect summer yard. The hardest part of the job is not the actual digging, planting, and…

Favorite Fishing Places in Somerset and Cambria County

It’s that time of year again to pull out that fishing equipment, strap on those waders, and beat the rush to your favorite spot! Nothing beats leaving the house before the crack of dawn with the sweet aroma steaming from mud brown coffee and the fresh fragrant earthy-scented mealworms swimming in espresso bean dirt. Something about those unique smells just go together like Abbott and Costello or Frankenstein and his monster.

But before you…

How much snow does Johnstown get in the winter?

If you live in the Johnstown, Pennsylvania area or anywhere in the northeast, then you are probably sick of that white, frosty fluffy stuff that falls from the sky during the winter months. A lot of the time the weatherman (or woman) tracks and predicts the storm, and gives the residents in the storm path time to prepare. Other times squalls inexplicably appear out of nowhere and without warning, reducing visibility and increasing back pain…

A Subaru Will Retain Its Value

The cost of many household items has gone up dramatically in the past ten years. Inflation has fluctuated anywhere between 0.1% - 4.1% since 2007 and many consumers see frequent rises in their grocery bills, cable bills, and, as drivers, the price at the pump. This can be a hard on the wallet at times, so it is important as consumers to remain scrupulous with purchasing. 

Here is where Subaru comes in. The cost…
