Subaru Picks Up KBB 2016 Best Resale Brand Award, Among Slew Of Others

As we fling ourselves headlong into the new (ish) year, it’s nice knowing that some things never change. You still can’t trust politicians or weathermen. That’s comforting, in a way. Another thing that never changes is that year after year, Subaru racks up a lot of awards from the industry.

You could call Subaru the darling of Kelley Blue Book. After all, the automaker picked up four awards from KBB in 2016, including 2016 Best Overall Brand, Most Trusted Brand and Best Performance Brand.

Subaru was also recognized as the KBB 2016 Best Resale Brand. This means that after a thorough market analysis, taking into account sales data and market conditions among other markers, KBB arrived at the undeniable conclusion that Subaru vehicles held their value longer than competitors.

Beyond a superior depreciation curve, Subaru vehicles also happen to be incredibly safe when equipped with the state-of-the-art EyeSight technology. All Subaru vehicles equipped with the package were recognized by the IIHS as a Top Safety Pick for 2016.

When it comes to branding, the key to doing it right is building trust. That’s the way Subaru does it. Among the pile of awards the automaker received in 2016, Kelley Blue Book also gave Subaru the Brand Image Award.

Steve Lewis Subaru Teams Up With Dakin Humane Society

Steve Lewis Subaru has teamed up with the Dakin Humane Society to help the organization meet their noble mission “to improve the lives of animals in need and the people who care about them.”

Improving the lives of animals is a lot of work and the Dakin Humane Society has been doing it a long time, since 1969 in fact. There are a number of different ways that the Dakin Humane Society achieves this goal. They provide shelter as well as medical care for animals in need. Spay/neuter services are regularly performed at the shelter. The organization also offers behavioral rehabilitation services. All in all, they help some 20,000 animals each year.

It’s important to note that the group does not receive any government funding nor are they funded by any national humane society. They are only able to operate through the generous donations of charitable organizations. That’s where Steve Lewis Subaru comes in. The dealership donated over a $1,000 to the Dakin Humane Society in January alone.

The shelter is staffed solely by volunteers. If you are interested in being a part of this important mission, you can start your volunteering adventure by visiting here. Who doesn’t want to hand-feed kittens in the nursery?
