Race4Freedom!


Running the race!

The Race4Freedom is a race held each year that benefits amazing charities. ICT SOS holds the race. What is amazing about this race, is that it’s one non profit having an event to raise money for another non profit. It’s a wonderful event that we just had to be a part of.

We approached ICT SOS with our desire to help, and asked them what could we do. We were so happy to be able to sponsor the medals that each runner would receive. Never before has the runners received medals for their accomplishments, and it was great to see everyone excited about getting them.

The race was fantastic! Over a thousand gathered to participate, and thousands was raised for the nonprofit. This was an amazing event to participate in, and we are proud to be able to help ICT SOS. Thanks for showing up Wichita

Rebates: Are they as good as you imagine?


Rebates

It’s a term that’s thrown around the auto industry all the time. Commercials scream at you just how huge of a rebate you can get, and they are packaged as a saving tool to buy a car.

The conversation around rebates needs to shift. Consumers need to understand exactly what a rebate is and what it does before purchasing a vehicle with a rebate. So we broke it down for you.

Lets Break It Down

A rebate in basic definition is a partial refund to someone who has paid to much money for something. Right off the bat you should know this is huge.  Rebates are offered when a vehicle is not selling or there is too many of them left. It’s a way to incentivize customers into buying the product. Rather than lowering the price on a product, they give you money to use as a down payment towards the product.

This “down payment” lowers the cost of the vehicle to it’s actual worth.  Lets say that again for those in the back.

Instead of pricing the vehicle at it’s actual worth, they give you a “down payment” to lower it to that price.  Don’t believe us? Test it out. Find a dealership offering rebates on a new model. Then search that exact VIN on Kelley Blue Book. Once you are done come back, because we aren’t finished yet.

Did you do it? Crazy I know! Hold on here’s more….

Your Car's Value

Rebates can hurt the value of your vehicle. If a certain model isn’t selling well and the manufacturer offers a rebate, then that model line can see a hit in their value. It’s not a huge hit, unless you drive that specific model. If you purchase a 2018 car and 4 months later there is a $6,000 rebate, well hate to say it your brand new car just took a dip in value.

Rebates aren’t all bad, but here at Subaru of Wichita you won’t ever see a rebate. We price our cars at their value, are open and transparent, and a Subaru is way to reliable to not sell well!

Clear the Shelters


Clear the Shelters

This past weekend we got to do something amazing. We were able to help provide FREE animals at the Kansas Humane Society. As part of the national Clear the Shelters campaign, we were asked to help sponsor this event. Of course we would! We love dogs! So we helped spread the word all over Wichita, that on August 19th you could get a pet for FREE.

The morning of the event we showed up 2 hours before the doors opened up. The people of Wichita showed up even earlier than that! The line was already as long as the building, and it would continue to grow. We brought donuts to feed as many as we could, and those ran out fast.

The doors opened and the adoptions began. We were there to welcome everyone on their new family member and give them a make believe vacation photo to their favorite destination. Along with that, we also gave them a goodie bag full of useful new toys and treats for their new furry friend.

It was an amazing event.  With over 140 animals being adopted. Thank you Wichita for coming out to support this event. Finding homes for all these animals means the world to us. We look forward to seeing everyone at Woofstock here soon!

New Teacher Orientation Breakfast

Breakfast for Teachers


Wichita is blessed with having amazing teachers. These teachers dedicate so much of their time to enriching the kids of our community. We are so thankful for the work that they do.  We were fortunate to be able to give all of the new teachers to USD 249 breakfast.

Chik-fil-A helped us out by making over 450 chicken sandwiches for us. They had to work extra hard, and were very gracious. We can’t thank them enough for helping out with this event.

It was great to be able to meet the new teachers and thank them for all of the work that they do. We were honored to come back this year, for the second time, to meet new teachers and give them breakfast.

After the event we wanted to continue sharing the love, so we went to the Wichita Police Department to make sure they had a great breakfast too! The men in women in uniform protect us daily, and we just had to thank them.

Vortex Music Festival

Vortex Music Festival


Wichita hosted it’s first Music Festival this past weekend. The Vortex Music Festival was an amazing time! We were there handing out free Subaru swag bags and taking photos of the events. The concert series included bands like Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy, Pokey LaFarge, and Dwight Yoakam.

The concerts took place in the shadow of the Keeper of the plains Friday night and Saturday morning. The event area was packed as concert goers crowded the stage to sing along to their favorite verse. Across the river was the campground, where festival goes could park an RV or put up their tents for the night. The following morning they were fed an amazing pancake breakfast and were treated to the songs of the Cherokee Maidens as everyone tore down their campsites.  

This was the first year for the festival, and there are already plans for another. It was an amazing event and we got to meet a ton of Subaru Owners. Hopefully everyone got some Subaru swag, and then a good nights rest the next night. We took tons of pictures and videos, but due to restrictions in the bands contracts we are not able to post them.

Test Drive Tips

Test Drive Tips

Test driving a new car is an exciting moment. We want to make sure you get the most out of your test drive, so here are some tips to help!

Recreate your life

Often times there is a “route” that the salesperson wants you to take. This is fine, but make sure you drive the vehicle in the type of environment that you drive in your day-to-day life. If you are constantly in stop and go traffic, then it doesn’t make sense to only drive on the highway does it? Drive the car how you will drive it.

 

Get Some Silence

 

Of course you’ll switch the radio on during your test drive. It’s important to make sure it works well, and you like the sound quality coming out of the speakers. However, silence is important as well. Take a second to listen to the engine and the sound of the tires. You want to make sure the vehicle is running smoothly, and with talking or loud noise you’ll never hear it.

 

Bring a friend


Two heads are truly better than one, and a test drive is no exception to that rule.  Having someone along for the ride can help you better understand your vehicle. While you are getting excited about how good the heated seats feel, they can be in the back seat hearing the weird wobble sound coming from the tire. Once you get back from the test drive, you can compare your notes and get a better view of issues that the vehicle may or may not have. Having someone there to help in the car buying process is always a good idea.

 

Try Other Seats

 

Other people will ride in your car at some point. Don’t you want them to feel comfortable? So hop in the back seat and see what the legroom is like. Especially as a parent, if your kids aren’t with you it’s important to get a feel for what they will be experiencing.

 

Bring Your Lifestyle

 

This may be the biggest one on the list. Numerous people purchase a vehicle that they love, take it home and find out their car seat doesn’t really fit in the back or their golf clubs can’t fit in the trunk. If you have larger objects or something that you use your vehicle for often, bring it! We want to make sure you are 100% happy with the purchase of your new or used vehicle, so bring your golf clubs if needed!
