Rimrock Subaru of Billings recently announced the results of its “Share The Love” winter campaign to support Billings’ own Family Service, Inc. Subaru of America will be presenting a check for $6,583.25 to Family Service, Inc. directors at 1824 First Ave North, the home of Family Service on Wednesday, April 9th at 9:00am.  This celebration of community generosity will take place in conjunction with the annual volunteer appreciation breakfast at Family Service.

Family Service works to prevent homelessness and alleviate poverty in Yellowstone County. They assist struggling families with basic needs, including food, clothing, rent and utilities. They also offer special services  like back to school supplies for children, holiday meals and gifts, or vision care assistance, helping vulnerable children, adults and senior citizens.

The money raised during Subaru of America’s sixth annual “Share the Love” event, during which customers buying or leasing a new Subaru had the opportunity to designate a $250 donation from Subaru to charity. Five national charities were selected by Subaru of America, and individual Subaru retailers were allowed to add a sixth charity from their local community.

Rimrock Subaru partnered with Family Service, Inc., a decision clearly embraced by the dealership’s customer base. More than a third of Rimrock Subaru’s customers chose to designate Subaru’s donation to Family Service, Inc., resulting in a fundraising success that exceeded expectations.

“Family Service has operated in Billings for more than 100 years.” said Executive Director, Stacy Brown. “Generous local donors and volunteers are vital partners in our work, making it possible to provide help, preserve dignity and instill hope among our neighbors in need.”

“This was the first year that Subaru asked dealers to choose a hometown charity option, and we were thrilled to be able to partner with Family service Inc.,” said Ernie Lee, Owner/Partner of Rimrock Subaru. “Family Service Inc. changes lives, and helps stop the cycle of homelessness in our community. Our customers appreciate that, and they support the Family Service mission.”

Subaru of America officials have said they expect to donate $10 million to charities in 2014 as part of the “Share the Love” campaign, which has provided $35 million in donations over the last six years.
Rimrock Subaru, owned by Ernie Lee, John Soares and Steve Zabawa, has been in business at 324 S. 24th St W in Billings since 2002.

2015 Subaru WRX Teaser Photo | Rimrock Subaru

Many of you remember the Spy Photos leaked back in April of 2013 of the new 2015 Subaru STi testbed. Well, Subaru just announced they will be bringing a production version of the 2015 WRX to the LA Auto Show, later this month. For now, all we can look at is the new teaser image released by SOA.

The new 2015 Subaru WRX

The new 2015 Subaru WRX

What do you think? Obviously, this car appears somewhat toned down from the concept version, which is to be expected. Other than this photo, Subaru hasn’t released any other details about this new addition to the WRX family, but knowing Subaru, we imagine it’s not going to be a let down. Rumor has it that the 2015 WRX will (obviously!) have a turbocharged boxer engine, all-wheel drive, and very likely a manual transmission. However, there are rumors that the WRX and STI will both come in sedan-only variants for the 2015 model year….but for the hatchback lovers out there, don’t worry yet – lets wait until the official LA Auto Show debut to see what the plan is for certain.

The Crossover Climb Challenge | Rimrock Subaru

Recently, an independent testing organization, the USAC, put unmodified, factory-spec, all-wheel-drive vehicles from various manufacturers through a very difficult test – climbing and descending a slippery, steep, low traction ramp, to simulate a slick or ice covered hill. See if Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is up for the challenge in this entertaining video.

Also, check out this video, where instructors investigate the safety of the AWD systems of the top Crossovers on the road today, at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Center, which teaches police, firefighters, and other first-responders how to deal with the toughest road conditions imaginable.
