Premier Subaru is excited to announce that construction is underway for the new Subaru building. Right now, the infrastructure is being put into place, including drainage, sewer, electrical and I/T conduits needed for operations. 

The next step, anticipated to be done in early June, is the puring and installation of our foundation.  This includes a new process utilizing "aggregate piers", designed to give the foundation better stability.                    

Premier Subaru is building a top-level facility in order to provide a world class experience for all clients and employees. The facility is designed to be one of the largest Subaru dealership facilities in the Northeast. 

Some of the facilities' amenities including:

A showroom capable of housing 8 cars

A service area capable of accommodating 40 people with built-in quiet areas

30 service bays, including 2 Express Service Bays

2 Alignment Racks

A Parts and Accessories Gallery

A Subaru Heritage Museum, featuring some rare Subaru models, including some NEVER sold in the U.S.! 

  Estimated completion of the dealership is January, 2019.



The Kia Stinger has some high expectations.  It's a stealth hatchback like the Audi A5.  It's halfway between the BMW 3-series and 5-series.  And at a starting price of $32,800, it's thousands less than the former and of all the cars it competes against. Kia is coming at this hard with value.

The Stinger is available in both rear wheel drive and all wheel drive, as well as a base model with a 255 horsepower 2 liter 4 cylinder engine, and a 365 horsepower 3.3 liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 365 horsepower.  The base model starts at just $32,000, but even the new GT's are only $52,000 retail value - around the same price as a base model BMW 5-series. 

The GT @ $52,000 gets you all-wheel-drive and goodies like adaptive cruise control, an active suspension system, head-up display, Nappa leather-upholstered ventilated seats with adjustable bolsters and LED mood lighting.

The Stinger GT can accelerate to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 167 mph, which puts it right in the mix with the competition. That sounds about right, and puts it right in the mix with the competition.

Plus with the Kia, you get something that high end brands cannot duplicate, the 5 year, 60,000 basic warranty and the 10 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty, made even better by our Premier Advantage Buyer's Benefits Package, which has a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. 

For more details on the Stinger, or to see them yourself, just contact us at                     (203) 315-2050 or visit us at 205 North Main Street, Branford, CT.

Here Are Some Examples:

"Courteous and Patient and Professional"- Cromwell Girl, Satisfied Subaru Sales Customer

The Crosstrek I wanted was not on the lot and Dmitriy took us out in a Crosstrek with the same options and went over all the fun features. He worked with us as we negotiated the deal and was very patient with all the questions and explained everything. They were able to get the exact Crosstrek I wanted and I love it. Dmitriy got to deliver his first 50th Anniversary edition. Going over all the paperwork with Rodney was a good experience. He explained everything and let us take all the time we needed to understand everything. Paola was great going over all the technology enough that I was able make some of my settings and have enough of a basic understanding that I could operate what I needed to make my ride home very enjoyable. I would do business here again.

"Great place to get a new car"- Fiore1227, Satisfied Kia Sales Customer

We came here after a bad experience with another dealership after Brian called us.

We came in in the afternoon and Brian set us with the sales person Jeremy. Jeremy

and Carlos worked out an amazing deal and we left the next day with a brand new

car! They costumer service at this dealership that we received was absolutely

amazing, we will definitely return here when it's time to get a new car again!

Every month, we bring you a pet looking for his or her "Forever Home". 

This month we are featuring Cleo! I am a two-year-old Catahoula and Heeler mix girl in search for my forever home. I am an extremely friendly girl who loves every new person I meet. I love to get hugs and cuddles a lot, and I hope you like that too! I am an athletic girl who can run fast and am very elegant in my motion. I weigh 43 pounds, and am at my healthy weight now. I came in to rescue with my ten puppies, and at that time I was very thin. It was hard work feeding ten puppies, but I did it! All have matured into healthy kids and are getting their forever homes, so now it is my turn. I am the type of girl that loves to hang out with my people. If you are hanging out with friends, I will pick a spot close by and just lie there hanging out with you. If you want to go for a walk, I am your girl! Want to go running - I can do that too! I will do anything with you that you want, as long as we can be together and you show me you love me. I am very gentle with everyone I meet. About the only thing I might do that is pushy is ask for a hug and to be petted. I am gentle with treats, can walk on leash, and am very food motivated so I am easy to train. I would love to do a training class with you so that we can bond quickly.
