As much as we love the outdoors, as Subaru enthusiasts, we are also concerned about the environment. Here at Subaru Pacific, we are proud of the fact that we are the first Subaru dealership to receive the Subaru Eco-Friendly Dealer award.

The award recognizes the culture created at Subaru Pacific which mirrors that of Subaru of America and also the LAcarGUY family of dealers. In the day-to-day running of business, from the products used, how waste oil is recycled to how the dealership is lit, everything is done with environmental conservation in mind.

Subaru Teases LA Auto Show Crowd with 2015 Legacy Concept

2015, subaru, la auto show

Subaru is preparing to release an all-new Legacy mid-size sedan. But before it does that, the company is teasing us with this sexy 2015 Legacy Concept set to debut at next week’s Los Angeles Auto Show.

Moving away from the somewhat blocky styling of the current Legacy, the 2015 Legacy Concept hints at a more coupe-like profile for the 25-year-old nameplate. Like the current Legacy, though, the 2015 Legacy Concept doesn’t ignore its standard all-wheel-drive system, and blistered fenders are visual reminders of this.

Subaru, LA auto show, 2015Though the 21-inch wheels may fail to materialize when the production 2015 Legacy is unveiled, expect front and rear end styling to remain consistent with the 2015 Legacy Concept. Subaru refers to the design of the 2015 Legacy Concept’s head- and taillight’s as “hawk-eye”. Paired with the new hexagonal grille design, the 2015 Legacy Concept certainly makes a memorable impression upon first appearance.

Keep following LAcarGUY News for the latest Subaru news and be sure to “Like” Subaru Pacific’s Facebook page to see live photos of the 2015 Legacy Concept from the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show.

That means besides added fuel efficiency the new XV Crosstrek Hybrid comes with features such as LED rear taillights, a standard 4.3-inch LCD display, a standard rearview camera, keyless access and ignition that allows owners to unlock and start the vehicle without removing the key from his or her pocket, and automatic climate control.

Step up to the $29,295 XV Crosstrek Hybrid Touring and you’ll receive a standard navigation system with a 6.1-inch display, leather seats, and a sunroof.

LAcarGUY Partners with Grades of Green in Trash Free Lunch Challenge

LAcarGUY’s group of South Bay dealerships have partnered with Grades of Green to kick off the 2013 Trash Free Lunch Challenge. Grades of Green is challenging schools to reduced lunchtime waste by encouraging students to pack trash-free lunches and to sort waste into recycle, compost and landfill bins. The 4R System that Grades of Green introduced helped divert over 10,000 bags of trash and saved participating schools thousands of dollars in 2011-2012.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


The project teaches students the 4Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rot (compost)

  • By bringing TRASH FREE each day, the students will make a difference at school by REDUCING lunch time landfill waste. They will know the number of landfill bags produced at lunch before the Challenge and by being TRASH FREE during the Challenge, they will see that number decrease.
  • By bringing REUSABLE lunch boxes, water bottles, sandwich and snack containers each day they will reduce lunch time waste.
  • The school will implement a sorting system during lunch which will include bins for: RECYCLING, ROT (compost), liquids and stacked trays. Educational games will teach students about WHAT items go into each bin and WHY.
  • Each bin in the sorting system will be clearly labeled to support students in the proper sorting process. These signs will educate and reinforce the concepts of REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE and ROT.

The Grades of Green team has been visiting participating schools and holding assemblies to educate students and get them excited about the project. Applications to participate in the project are due March 15th and finalist chosen among those schools with the least amount of trash will be announced March 22nd. Judges will visit the finalists on April 16th and the winning school will be announced on April 22nd at the awards ceremony.

Participating schools include:

  • Vista Mar High School
  • Washington Elementary
  • Riviera Elementary
  • Lunada Bay Elementary

And supporting LAcarGUY dealerships are Pacific VW, Audi Pacific, Subaru Pacific and Pacific Porsche.

Subaru Continues To Grow Thanks To It’s Strongest Ever Lineup Of Vehicles!

There are many reasons that the newest brand and store in the LAcarGUY family is Subaru. The companies focus on the environment, the outdoor lifestyle, and giving back to the community all sync up with LAcarGUY’s values. On top of this Subaru is one of the fastest growing brands in the United States. During the downturn in the economy, and the terrible tsunami that devastated Japan, Subaru’s sales continued to grow, even as others fell off.

Subaru is like that band you’ve loved for so many years and you are baffled as to why they aren’t on everyones radar, they ARE that overnight success 30 years in the making! A combination of durability, dependability and value, along with a fresh new lineup of vehicles are just some of the reasons more and more people are discovering Subaru for the first time.

With September’s sales numbers just in Subaru’s sales year to date are up 25% over 201, year to date, and compared to September 2011, September 2012 saw a 32% increase in sales!

As we said, with newly refreshed models like the Outback, Legacy and Impreza, and the new XV Crosstrek just arriving in our showroom, and of course the highly acclaimed BRZ, it’s easy to see, with the strongest lineup in Subaru’s history, why more and more people are discovering the brand for the first time.

So many other manufactures now tout the availability of all wheel drive, like it’s something that was never available for vehicles other than trucks and large SUV’s, it is something Subaru has been offering across the product line for well over 20+ years! These years of experience are why Subaru has the most refined all wheel drive system in the industry.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience Subaru, we encourage you to come in for a test drive and see for yourself why your next car should be a Subaru, from Subaru Pacific!

Introducing the 2013 Subaru BRZ Sports Coupe
