Stay Calm and Connected
 
Coming soon on select 2016 Subaru vehicles, new enhancements to our SUBARU STARLINK in-vehicle technology will deliver improved safety and security services thanks to built-in 4G LTE wireless connectivity.
 
Locked out of your Subaru? These soon-to-be updated STARLINK remote services will allow you to unlock your vehicle from your smartphone. A STARLINK advisor can help authorities locate your vehicle if it's ever stolen and can send help in a hurry should you need it after a collision. STARLINK will also deliver monthly diagnostic reports on key vehicle systems. If your Subaru detects an issue, drivers can receive an email that explains what it is and how to contact your Subaru retailer for a service appointment to get it resolved. Read more.

 
SUBARU STARLINK1 in-vehicle technology with Pandora®, Aha, and iHeartRadio app integration puts news, food, weather, music, podcasts, audiobooks and other multimedia content into your vehicle and at your fingertips.

Your Love Story
 
My family and I live in Long Island, NY, and fell in love with Bar Harbor on Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park over nine years ago. I knew immediately I would love to live there someday but – as it often happens – the day to day takes hold and the dream seems unreachable.
 
Visiting there as often as we did, we noticed that Subaru was as much a part of the landscape as the trees, water and mountains and we took great pride in spotting them and admiring the various older models still on the road.
 
When it was time for us to buy another car, we felt buying our first Subaru ('12 Forester) would somehow make our dream of living in Maine a little more "real." We loved it so much, we bought the '13 Subaru Impreza for our second car!
 
Although we are still a bit numb by our decision, we bought a modest home with an amazing view of the mountains of Acadia National Park this past August and plan to move there in a little over a year.
 
Thank you so much for helping us get our dream started!

Nine Winter Driving Tips (AAA)
 
Even if you don’t live where there’s ice and snow, your adventurous spirit may take you to a cold climate this season. AAA offers these tips for driving in adverse weather. For more information on winter driving, refer to your Owner’s Manual.
 
 1 Avoid driving while you’re fatigued.
 2 Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.
 3 Make certain your tires are properly inflated.
 4 Never mix radial tires with other tire types.
 5 Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid gas line freeze-up.
 6 If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather.
 7 Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand).
 8 Always look and steer where you want to go.
 9 Use your seatbelt every time you get into your vehicle.

* 37° * New! The 2015 Legacy and Outback feature a road surface freeze warning indicator that alerts you to potentially slippery conditions based on outside temperatures. The indicator is intended as a guide only; drivers should check and monitor the actual condition of the road surfaces.
