I agree with the above. Go see Patrick, Joe and Randy.

I have had nothing but positive expereinces at Brandon Tomes Subaru with parts, warranty work and a few repairs.
If/when I buy another Subaru they will be my first and probably only stop.

Got mine from Sewell who had to order it. I went in and said I need X for my trade and I'll pay Y for the car. They said ok...no drama. Then when it came time for all the up sells like GAP insurance and extended warranty they handed me a sheet of paper with options and said just circle what you want. Easiest car buying experience ever! Plus at this point they have paid for my car in lifetime free car washes.

Never buy from Rene Ispe Toyota of Lewisville, I want to burn that place down.

Never been and I am sure he is a nice guy but can someone please tell them to hire someone for their commercials?!?!?!

Brandon seems like he is just a notch above the guy that does the dry eyes commercials. A pretty face with a smile and decent acting skills might actually help a little. I just see those commercials in the morning and want to go back to sleep.

Sweet Jesus please have some enthusiasm, you are selling cars for crying out loud!
I'd like to see it and hope it is an improvement.


If the commercial sucks I won't have issues telling you so maybe you better not link it.

Car sales + Commercials = fail.

Anthony Hopkins could do it and it would still be cheesy. It's part of the charm.

Although, if Joe wears his Harry Potter outfit it could get more interesting.

I have purchased 4 subarus from Zach Barnett when he worked for Bob Moore. I would not hesitate to Go to Denton and buy one from him in the future. He will work for you even after the sale. He has picked up my car from home to have service work performed and brought it back to me when it was finished. He has come by my home to sync my new phone to my hands free phone hookup in the WRX and Forester XT that I have. He is great to deal with.

First post to the forums .... that said, do any of the DFW dealers offer new owner perks?

I know that Sewell does the free carwash for life thing. Im thinking about a 2014/15 sti and was curious what a local dealer offers besides a great car. I bought an 09 Forester in Utah from Mark Miller Subaru and they offered a new owner orientation. Part of that orientation was a coupon card with a 2 free oil changes and 2 more discounted service visits. The little coupon card also offered a couple of discounts on parts and service. Its not a huge selling point for me, more of a curiosity. Thanks for any responses.

I ordered (took 6 weeks to come in) my 2011 WRX from Subaru of Georgetown, just north of Austin. Chance Black was the sales guy, but he isnt there anymore. He offered my invoice on the car. I went in knowing what invoice was, and end the end that is what I paid. I didn't have a trade for them to gyp me on, pretty straightforward awesome deal.
