Tacoma Subaru Loves to Care

Image
Where Love Meets HopeThis June, in support of the Subaru Loves to Care initiative, Tacoma Subaru is partnering with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Washington/Alaska to donate and deliver blankets and message of hope cards to community members fighting cancer at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital

Our partnership with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Washington/Alaska (LLS) hits close to home for us here at Tacoma Subaru.  That's because a very dedicated group of employees have been fundraising for the annual Light the Night Walk that supports LLS for over 7 years now.  Every year they work tirelessly throughout the whole year to meet their goal. Why? Because in 2009 our parts manager's son was diagnosed with Burkitts Lymphoma at the age of 20. Because of the work of LLS and supporting partners such as Subaru of America, we know first hand the good work happening with LLS. And because of that work, Renee's son is healthy, and has since had a child of his own beca…

Transmission Service

Transmission Service

In our continued efforts to educate consumers on the importance of maintaining your car, we are going to talk about your transmission.  Simply put, without a transmission your vehicle will not go.  Today's vehicles last longer and are less likely to break down.....true and false.  Today's vehicles are much more sophisticated than their ancestors and their regular maintenance is more important than ever.  With regular maintenance most new generation vehicles will go 200,000 miles without any major issues, but the key is regular maintenance.  Their are some simple facts with any vehicle, parts to wear with time and use and when they break, it costs sufficiently more to fix. So smaller investments along the way can prolong your major expenses to the distant future.


As with any major system, the transmission is often ignored or overlooked until it actually breaks, and then it is huge expense and inconvenience.  Transmissions run anywhere from $…

Power Steering - Maintenance Free: True or False?

FALSE!!

In our continuing series regarding the importance of maintaining your vehicle, we are going to discuss the Power Steering system.  We have hit the big scary items, but now it is time to discuss the equally important, but often viewed as unimportant systems, starting with the Power Steering System.





If you are over 30 you probably remember the days of using 2 hands to crank the steering wheel around the corner.  Ever drive Grandpa's old pick up truck?  I remember asking  my uncle if his truck had power steering, he said "Yes, Armstrong Steering", I asked what that meant, and he replied "you need strong arms to steer it".  And thus the driving lesson began.  I still remember the first time I drove a car with power steering, I about ran us into a ditch, took a while to get used to the ease of the steering wheel. 

Cars and trucks have come along way since the first horseless carriage, and they have jumped by leaps and bounds in the last 2…
