Thank you to Tindol Subaru in Gastonia, NC for sponsoring today’s discussion. For some great cars with top notch safety features, visit them on the web. As always, words and opinions are my own.
Subarus. Celebrities are driving Subarus! If you’re a Tosh.0 watcher, like Hubs and I are, you know that Daniel is a Subaru Outback driver. People are already clamoring for his car! Tosh isn’t the only one that’s a Subaru Outback fan. Did you know that Dave Matthews is also a Subaru driver? Yup. He’s another proud Outback owner. It happens to be one of the most popular cars in their lineup. Just take a peek at the roomy driver’s cockpit in the Outback (Tosh is 6’3″, which is one tall comic!):
How about the one and only, dreamy, Joel McHale? Yup. He’s the very proud owner of a customized Subaru Impreza ESX STi. Look at all that good-lookin-ness on the hood of that Subaru! And these cars aren’t just style. The IIHS cherry picked four Subarus for their 2014 IIHS Top Safety Picks. The Subaru Legacy, Outback, Impreza, and the XV Crosstrek were all touted for their safety. That makes the mom in me a happy camper. Only the best for my Mom-Taxi!
The International Institute for Highway Safety is using new criteria for their awards in 2014. To be a Top Safety Pick, a car is required to have good performance in front, side, roof and head restraint tests and now, for the first time, good performance in the “small overlap front” test introduced in 2012. It’s much tougher to attain these high ratings and prestigious awards. So, if you’re visiting Tilson Subaru, you know you’re going to walk away with a very safe car for you and your family (or that dreamy celebrity that you want to smuggle away and marry).
While you’re dreaming of your new Subaru, sure to visit Tindol Subaru online or in person. They are a short drive up 85 from Atlanta, in Gastonia NC. Even if you have a question, the chat operators on their website are friendly and informative. How about you? Have you even owned or driven a Subaru? What’s your favorite feature?
