What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

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.

Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated close to $14 million to the ASPCA and helped support nearly 1,000 pet adoption events, resulting in more than 11,500 adoptions to date.

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Over a decade ago, Subaru became the first U.S. auto manufacturer to become zero-landfill, and now, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru is leveraging that same environmental expertise to help the National Parks reach zero-landfill too.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Total donations to teachers: $92,233
Over 200 teachers adopted
More than 15,000 students impacts

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

Subaru and Meals on Wheels America worked together to make volunteering easier, by launching a tool called the Meals on Wheels Online Volunteer Drive.

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Subaru has donated more than $4.5 million dollars to
Make A Wish, helping to grant 610 wishes in the U.S.

How is Courtesy Subaru of Chico dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Love Promise Stories from Courtesy Subaru of Chico

Subaru Loves to Care  –  Erica B

Subaru Loves to Care

LLS Sacramento's partnership with Subaru is one-of-a-kind, but the experience with Courtesy Subaru of Chico and Feather River Hospital in Paradise was extra special. I've attended most of the blanket drop-offs for our chapter, but I had the most wonderful time at this one because we were able to give blankets directly to the patients ourselves. It put a huge smile on my face to see them smile, and to provide hope and comfort to someone who's already gone through so much already. I loved Diane's passion for Subaru supporting the local community and Kevin's big heart for his patients, staff and the hospital overall. Everyone welcomed LLS and Subaru with smiles and thanks, and I couldn't have been more honored to be part of this opportunity and hope Subaru will continue their partnership with LLS in the future!


Extraordinary Experience  –  Carol H

Extraordinary Experience

While getting a new car is always an exciting adventure, the journey has not always been easy/pleasant in the past at other dealerships. Leasing our new Subaru Forester from Chico Courtesy Automotive was a wonderfully new experience for us. EVERY SINGLE PERSON WE ENCOUNTERED over the last three days from Scott and Benny in the Service Department, to Jerry the owner, Matt and Isaac our salesmen, to Cameron in Finance, and Dave the Subaru Manager, we were greeted with a genuine smile and were listened to intently as to what our needs were. When viewing the cars, we were shown a variety of options and NOT PRESSURED! When we decided on a Forester, the car available did not have all the options we wanted and Dave, the manager was able to secure one by the following day. Isaac went above and way beyond explaining thoroughly, information about our new purchase and then took us for a ride demonstrating all the features. He was exceptionally patient with our multitude of questions, and we never felt we were taking up too much of his time. What we noticed throughout our experience, was the use of the word "FAMILY" by so many different individuals; that we were part of their family now. We were assured by EVERYONE, that if we have any questions to come by or call them personally. We strongly suggest visiting Courtesy Automotive for the BEST car purchase/lease and/or service experience you will ever have.We feel we are truly part of their family now.
