The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of ­its people.

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.

My New Impreza!  –  Annalise S

I purchased my new Crosstrek from Island Subaru back in July, 2016. Island Subaru made the experience easy, painless and most importantly, fun! The salesman, Sam, not only went over the vehicle with me in full detail but even stayed in contact with me the next couple of days to make sure that I am loving my new vehicle! Unfortunately, in May, 2017, my Crosstrek was totaled in a flash flood! Sam and the rest of the staff at Island Subaru all took an interest in making sure that not only was I ok, but also made sure that I had options available for a new vehicle. This time around I decided to go with a new 2017 Subaru Impreza Sport! Once again, Island Subaru answered all of my questions and gave me a full demonstration of the vehicle. The finance manager was even able to get me approved on my own! I am very happy with my Impreza and the staff at Island Subaru!

My Subaru Impreza  –  Brandon M

I have been a Subaru addict since I was young! From the rallys, to meets, to other Subaru events, they have always sparked my interest. When it was time to get my first vehicle, my first and only option was Subaru, specifically the Impreza Sport. At Island Subaru, not only did they greet me with a smile, but answered every one of my questions, and made me feel at home.My car buying experience could not have been better. To this day, I am loving my Impreza Sport and I am already showing my little brother why Subaru is the best brand on the market!

My Island Subaru  –  Annalise S

I purchased my Crosstrek at Island Subaru in Staten Island, New York. The car purchasing horror stories were put to rest at Island Subaru. My experience was a great one! The staff is exceptionally professional and friendly. All of my questions were answered, and the process was stress free. I chose the Subaru brand because of its safely and reliability. Also, I believe in "giving back" whenever possible, so I support the Subaru Love Promise. My Subaru retailer gives back to national charities such as Meals on Wheels and the ASPCA. They also support local Staten Island institutions such as Staten Island Hospital and Richmond University Medical Center. As I see it, my purchase was a win/win situation. I get to drive my beautiful, safe and efficient Crosstrek and some deserving charities receive some much needed support. I'm actually looking forward to my next Subaru from Island Subaru!

Serving the Underserved  –  Eugene L

Cancer patients on Staten Island may only be a few miles away from the heart of New York City, but the distance can feel like a never-ending journey when you're a parent needing to drive a sick child to and from endless sessions of chemotherapy. When 4 LLS staff members delivered blankets to the Staten Island University Hospital, the nurses on the pediatric oncology floor shared this perspective. "Even though Staten Island is part of New York City, we are still an under-served community" said Head Nurse Sarah Vaiselbuh, "It takes hours driving through traffic and money for taxis and gas for parents to drive their sick children back and forth into Manhattan just to be able to receive care from the nation's best doctors." Now, with the remarkable gift of $100,000 from Subaru, LLS has been able to reopen the Travel Assistance Program, which provides stipends to patient families directed specifically to covering the cost of traveling from home to hospital. The entire Staten Island University Hospital nursing staff were thrilled to receive and distribute the blankets, and are so thankful for Subaru's commitment to their small but mighty community. Staten Island’s LLS Team In Training Coach, Patti Jezycki, accompanied the blanket delivery, and shared how her husband (a NYC Firefighter) is in remission from CML (chronic myelogenous leukemia) thanks to the drugs LLS’s research funded... further proof that every dollar in the fight against cancer truly makes an impact!

Subaru and Superstorm Sandy  –  Sharon H

In May 2012 I bought my first Subaru, a new Forester. It was love at first drive. Now, fast forward to October 2012. I lived in the Ocean Breeze section of Staten Island and had packed up my husband had the Forester packed for evacuation when the storm hit. Unfortunately, by the time we had decided it was unsafe to stay in our home the water from the ocean had already crossed onto our street and within 5 minutes it was too deep to drive. We were stuck in our home as I watched the water overtake my car and saw it fill up like an aquarium. Needless to say I was distraught. A few days later I came into your dealership still shaken from the experience. With tears in my eyes I explained what happened to my new Forester. Your sales rep. was compassionate and very helpful. He quickly was able to locate a new Forester with the same features within the same basic price. He then had the remote start feature I had installed on my previous Forester installed in the new one without charging me for it. I was very appreciative of this and within a week had my new vehicle. My husband and I really needed the spaciousness of the Forester to move ourselves, three dogs, and our belongings to and from different locations while our home was being made livable again since it had sustain damage from the storm. At a time when we were desperate for some relief the caring and cooperation we received from your dealership helped relieve some of the stress.
