2015 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own AwardAnother Kelley Blue Book Honor!
 
In the last Insider, we reported that Subaru earned the Kelley Blue Book 2015 Best Resale Value Brand Award and three Subaru models – the 2015 Subaru Impreza, 2015 Subaru WRX and 2015 Subaru Legacy – earned 2015 Best Resale Value Awards in their respective categories1.
 
Now we are pleased to share that the Subaru brand has also won the 2015 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Award2, which is based on Kelley Blue Book new car data for the initial 5-year ownership period. This data helps buyers understand what a car will cost beyond its purchase price considering out-of-pocket expenses like fuel and insurance, plus the car's loss in value over time.

Your Love Story
 
I am a children's nature book author with eight books in publication and I LOVE my bookmobile! It's a 2013 Subaru Forester. I drive all over the Northwest in my Subaru in all kinds of weather to do book signings, give nature programs and complete research. My husband also loves our Forester. Before the Forester that we purchased in 2013, I had a 2006 Forester and I put many miles on that bookmobile, too. This picture is of our 2013 Subaru Forester in Mount Rainier National Park while I was researching the park for an upcoming book. I guess it's appropriate that our last name is Love!

Insider Tips
 
Show Your Subaru You Care
 
It’s not too late make New Year’s resolutions for your Subaru! Subaru partner Liberty Mutual offers some of the best commitments you can make to keep your vehicle in better condition, enjoy a better ride and even save a few dollars.
 
1. Commit to organizing your paperwork. Take the opportunity to collect all of your driver paperwork where you can easily find it. Keep everything organized in one folder, so you never scramble for those documents again.
 
2. Clean out your vehicle. If you're motoring around with dozens of pounds of unnecessary tools, books and work-related materials and equipment, you're burning fuel needlessly. Cleaning out your car will maximize your miles per gallon and give you more room for the important stuff.
 
3. Change the oil and air filter. Oil changes tend to be on a per-mile basis, not an annual schedule, but many people procrastinate. Commit to changing filters more consistently, rather than scrambling to get an appointment each time your odometer rolls up.
 
4. Give your car a tire checkup. Pay attention to your tires, especially during major weather changes like dropping temperatures in the winter. Measure tire pressure and check the tread on your tires regularly.
 
5. Drive smarter, not harder. Make a pledge for the New Year to accelerate slowly, stay below the optimal fuel-saver speed (50–60 mph) and get a lot more out of a gallon.
