HP, MPG, color, interior, exterior, sound system..... all important factors when purchasing a car... but the number one factor, that is always completely overlooked as we pine and drool over the latest and greatest in technology, features and upgrades is your car's safety rating.  Ever wonder which vechicle manufacturer has the safest cars on the road to date?  Subaru.  

 

The Subaru Legacy and Outback are the latest vechicles to be awarded the Insurace Institude of Highway Safety's most prestigous safety title, Top Safety Pick.

The redesigned Subaru Legacy achieved the highest possible rating of 'good' in the Institute's crashworthiness evaluations of front small overlap, front moderate overlap, side impact, roof crush and rear impact. The sedan also received a 'superior' rating in the Institute's front crash avoidance testing. The 2015 Subaru Legacy is a 2014 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ winner when equipped with the optional EyeSight® driver-assist system.

 The all-new 2015 Subaru Outback also achieved the highest possible rating of 'good' in the Institute's crashworthiness evaluations, as well as a 'superior' rating in the front crash avoidance testing. Similar to the mid-size Legacy, the Outback crossover is a 2014 IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ winner when equipped with optional EyeSight®.

 

According to the IIHS Subaru holds more Top Safety Pick title then any other manufacturer, with seven vechcles having earned the title.  Subaru also has the most 2014 TOP SAFETY PICK awards of any brand. Its other winners include the BRZ, Impreza, Forester, WRX and XV Crosstrek. To qualify for TOP SAFETY PICK, a vehicle must earn a good or acceptable rating for small overlap protection, as well as good ratings in the Institute's moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraint tests. TOP SAFETY PICK+ winners must meet those same criteria and also earn a basic, advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention.

Find Quality Touch Up Paint

Order touch up paint on-line!

All touch up paint is not created equal! The generic paints you buy at auto part stores will likely NOT match your vehicle’s paint exactly. Believe it or not, even the OEM dealers usually stock “close enough” colors. We recommend PaintScratch.com since their high quality paint is freshly made, they custom mix each order for you upon receipt, and they offer a color match guarantee.
