John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt at Yosemite National ParkCelebrating National Parks
 
In 1906 Theodore Roosevelt set aside millions of acres of land to be preserved for future generations. It wasn’t easy. Doing the right thing rarely is. But, like President Roosevelt, we made a commitment to something we believe in: our incredible natural resources.
 
It’s why over a decade ago, we became the first U.S. auto manufacturer to achieve zero landfill, why we became the first U.S. auto plant to be designated a Wildlife Habitat, why we’ve provided Subaru vehicles to Yosemite, Grand Teton, Denali and Grand Canyon National Parks, why we’ve donated nearly $3 million to the National Park Foundation through our "Share the Love" events, and why we’re now proud partners of the National Park Service Centennial.
 
To join us in this once-in-a-lifetime celebration of the planet's most spectacular places, visit findyourpark.com.

The annual cleanup of the Cooper RiverSubaru Loves the Earth
 
On Friday, April 24, 33 Subaru of America volunteers joined Philadelphia retailer United by Blue for an annual cleanup of the Cooper River. Employees removed 920 pounds of trash from the river and Cooper Park, including a variety of weird objects: an animal skull, various bones, a payphone, bike and a creepy doll. This is the fourth year in a row that Subaru and United by Blue have teamed up to clean the Cooper, bringing the total amount of trash collected together across the United States in 11 cleanups to 52,745 pounds.
 
United by Blue has traveled over 75,000 miles in their two branded Subaru vehicles and removed over 240,000 lbs. of trash from rivers, streams, creeks and beaches across 21 U.S. states.Learn more about our Green partnerships.

Your Love Story
 
Your Love Story I want to tell you that I love my Subaru, but I think Miss Noodles loves it more! She has travelled from Pennsylvania (our home) to New Mexico, Texas and Florida, and has been on many other great adventures in our Subaru. It is and has been an awesome car! We once got stuck on I-40 in an ice storm for three hours. She was a trouper, but greater was our Subaru that followed the truckers while other cars were stuck on the side of the road or just stranded.
 
Thank you for your commitment to quality and comfort … and Miss Noodles says, “If you ever need a spokesperson, I'm your girl!”

Insider Tips
 
Subaru Tire CenterThree Ways to Minimize Tire Wear
 
Your tires are the critical point of contact between you and the road. Keep them in good shape for the spring and summer travel season ahead!
 
1. Keep your tires properly inflated. Information on correct tire inflation pressure is provided in your Owner's Manual and on a placard on the driver's door pillar. Check tires regularly and when they are cold, because tire pressure increases as the tires warm up.
 
2. Rotate your tires regularly. Subaru recommends tire rotation every 7,500 miles. These are recommended intervals only. Your actual driving conditions may warrant more frequent rotation.
 
3. Replace tires responsibly. It is essential for every tire to have a size and construction as well as a speed symbol and load index matching those shown on the tire placard. Using tires of a non-specified size can detract from controllability, ride comfort, braking performance and speedometer/odometer accuracy.
 
For safe vehicle operation, Subaru recommends replacing all four tires at the same time.
