In New England it's important to know that you have a reliable car or SUV that can get you through the notoriously difficult winters, which is why Tilton, Concord, Manchester, Laconia, and Plymouth customers choose Subaru vehicles. There are many benefits to the Subaru Forester aside from the all-wheel drive, backup camera, and other modern technology, but a test drive will really show you why it's a great fit for you.
