Amazing - Diana V

I was lucky enough to go to Island Subaru. There are not enough words of praise out there for the way I was treated through the entire experience. You can tell this dealership has amazing leadership. The entire process was comfortable, enjoyable, and educational. I did not feel pressured and was not only welcomed by the salesperson but also management made it a point to come over introduce themselves and see if I had any concerns throughout the process. This dealership is exactly what other dealerships should follow and mirror the process and the way customers are treated. Thank you Island Subaru.


Subaru Helps Battle COVID 19 - Laura G

Subaru Share the Love Impact Story Richmond University Medical Center Staten Island, NYC When we received the check from the 2019 Subaru Share the Love program from our local partner Island Subaru, it was at the height of the COVID 19 epidemic in NYC. Our hospital, Richmond University Medical Center, is in Staten Island, a borough of NYC. Staten Island has had the second highest COVID 19 infection rate of all the NYC boroughs, and over 1,000 people in the borough have died due to COVID 19.We discussed the use of the 2019 Share the Love Program with Marcello Sciarrino, the owner of Island Subaru. In the past, we have used the funds to help with our new emergency department project. However, when the check was received this year there were immediate needs to support our hospital during the COVID pandemic. Marcello generously allowed us to use the 2019 Share the Love proceed for COVID related expenses our hospital was experiencing. These included:Stocking supplies of personal protective gear for our workers. Purchasing and renting HEPA filtration machines to transform rooms into negative pressure rooms. Any hospital room with a window can be made into a negative pressure room with one of these machines. The negative pressure room is a standard procedure in managing airborne infectious diseases such as COVID and keeping the virus from contaminating other hospital areas. At the height of the pandemic we had 210 COVID inpatients so these machines were essential for infection control.Upgrading our anesthesia machines- these machines can also function as ventilators, which were in short supply in NYC.Upgrading respiratory equipment such bipap machines and other breathing devices other than ventilators that have shown good outcomes for COVID patients.We thank the Subaru Share the love program and Island Subaru for helping our hospital so much during this unprecedented health crisis. Thankfully, Laura Gajda Vice President, Development

New Impreza - Mark R

Yesterday I had an appointment with Island Subaru to purchase a new car. I was amazed at how the transaction went. I have to say the best experience buying a car. No hassle, no haggling, all upfront, and no games. Thank You Island Subaru. I didn’t call out any salespeople. But I do want to recognize the team at Island Subaru.

Sharing the Love at Island Subaru - Joseph L

Barbara Ann and I are just so happy with the whole experience we received at Island Subaru, thanks to our salesman Max. I told John on the way out how appreciative we were and how good our salesman Max was. The love and excitement we had while dealing with Max was unexpected.Now I'm trying to convince my kids that this "silver" is not a lame color, and can't wait to be able to show them in person. A few days later and already the wait is somewhat torturous. So, thanks for the update, and keep them coming! I thought they wouldn't be necessary, but instead, it just fires up the excitement of getting my brand new Ascent!

Island Subaru Came to My Rescue! - Winsome A

Good evening. I hope you are well. Last Wednesday after receiving gas for my car, my car refused to start. I reached out Roadside Assistance, but with the cold and the number of incidences within the area I was told the wait could be lengthy. This was the second time my car had stalled, and I recalled your comment at one of the New Owners Clinic indicating that if owners ever have need, to reach out to you. I took you at your word, and with care, thought and compassion you assisted me during this cold evening. You implored the help of John, and Marvin who came to assist me. To you, John and Marvin, I express my deepest gratitude. Thank you all for being Christ to me. May you all have a blessed and happy Christmas with a New Year filled with good health and blessings galore.

Subaru Loves To Care - Monica J

On Wednesday, September 25th the New York City Chapter and the Island Subaru team had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets and 50 arts & craft kits to Richmond University Medical Center as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of Island Subaru team.During the visit, we visited the pediatric unit where we all met in the “playroom”. There we were able to meet some of the hospital staff to present the blankets and kits. They were so incredibly thankful for our contribution and continued partnership. We also had an incredible opportunity to meet with one of the pediatric patients and her family. We presented a blanket and arts & crafts kit to her. She was so excited to see us and loved how many art supplies were in the kit. The family was extremely grateful to us and continued to express their appreciation. The mother expressed that the daughter had been cold the night before so these blankets came at the exact right time. The hospital contact sent a note after the visit sharing how extremely thoughtful and amazing we are to participate in a program like this along with what a difference it makes in the patients’ lives.This was such an incredible experience and we are so proud to partner with Subaru to spread hope, love and warmth to those fighting cancer, across the country and right here in the New York City community.

Life Time Driver - Helen Y

Dear Subaru Team, Thank you for your life-saving craftsmanship in all your vehicles. On December 15, 2018, my two daughters, ages 13 and 6, and I were on our way to a birthday party. Two blocks from the venue, we were struck by a box truck with the heaviest impact. Our 2017 Forester flipped over twice and landed on the sidewalk. My two daughters were dangling from their seats, looking frightened and I was on my side. As I looked around the inside of our car, we were so very lucky the airbags deployed around the car which kept us safe. We were so fortunate that we walked away alive without any scratches; however, I still suffer from neck and upper back pain coupled with headaches and dizziness. But considering how hard we were hit, the injuries are minor in comparison. I am forever grateful my girls are okay. As you can tell from the attached picture, the total damage of our vehicle could have resulted in worse outcomes. John E. sold us the Forester back in October 2017. He told us how safe the vehicle is and all the benefits come along with it. After the accident, we went back to Staten Island, Island Subaru, John introduced us to Sam C. who sold us the 2019 Forester. We received the most hospitable service and their professionalism was beyond their call of service. We walked in without a vehicle, a few hours later, we drove off with our brand new 2019 Forester. We are committed lifetime Subaru drivers because Subaru standby their name.
