Suzuki of Wichita (and now Subaru of Wichita).
The Suzuki of Wichita family is thrilled to welcome Subaru onto our lot and into our hearts!
Tongue Twister Alert: Subaruki? Suzubaruzu? Don't say we didn't warn you?
Starting immediately, our team is in place at the CURRENT Subaru of Wichita location (1633 N. Rock Road) making the necessary arrangements to bring Subaru's exciting lineup of cars and SUVs to our location at 11610 E. Kellogg, effective April 1st.
Now through March 31, 2013: 11610 E. Kellogg is Suzuki of Wichita.
Effective April 1, 2013: 11610 E. Kellogg will become Subaru of Wichita!
Now through March 31, 2013: 1633 N. Rock Road is Subaru of Wichita.
Effective April 1, 2013: 1633 N. Rock Road will become Super Car Guys East!
So, the same great people who brought you No Sharks on the Showroom, the 72-Hour Love it or Leave it Money Back Guarantee, and the Golden Rule for Car Dealers have a great new brand?Subaru?to stand behind. There's a whole lot to love at the NEW Subaru of Wichita! Love is what makes a Subaru a Subaru, after all.
The #1 Suzuki Dealership in the USA to Begin Serving Subaru!
We are setting goals and making plans to become one of the top Subaru dealerships in the USA, just like we did with Suzuki. Again, thank you to our community who helped us become the #1 Selling Suzuki Automobile Dealership in the USA for the last 5 years: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. This achievement is unmatched by any Wichita dealership, and we couldn't have done it without you.
We are currently in the final days of our Suzuki sell-down of remaining inventory. Due to huge incentive activity with Suzuki's (up to $7,000 off of brand new vehicles), we anticipate being completely sold out of new Suzuki's by March 31, 2013?Just in time to make room for the new lineup!
Just so we're clear, let's recap:
On April 1st, our showroom at 11610 E. Kellogg will become the bigger, better Subaru of Wichita, where we will sell new Subaru vehicles and quality used vehicles of every brand. This will be your stop for Subaru AND Suzuki Certified Service (feel free to untie your tongue now).
On April 1st, 1633 N. Rock Road will be Super Car Guys East, with fully staffed quick lube, service, vehicle reconditioning, parts, and car wash departments! We're excited about this new phase of the ongoing success story that is Super Car Guys, the Super Heroes of Cars and Credit who specialize in helping buyers in every kind of situation.
On April 1st, we will no longer have any new Suzuki vehicles for sale?just fond memories.
Companywide, that makes 3 dealerships, 2 service departments, quality used cars in every price range, finance options for every buyer, and attention to your individual needs that you won't find anywhere else.
Suzuki of Wichita and Subaru of America?A Perfect Match.
This expansion increases the size of our team to well over 100 employees, and we're still looking for top talent. We were excited when Suzuki's news first dropped in November, (11/6/12), and we're even more excited about the opportunities for growth that continue to present themselves through this transition. Compared side by side, it's almost as if the paths of Subaru of America and Suzuki of Wichita were destined to meet. Both companies have enjoyed dynamic growth over the last five years despite the turbulent economic climate. For example, 2012 was a record year for both Subaru of America and Suzuki of Wichita, and the upward climb has continued into 2013.
Subaru vehicles are cool enough to drive ourselves, and safe enough to give to our kids. Every model in the Subaru lineup was named a "top safety pick" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), which no other car brand anywhere can claim. Subaru racks up so many top honors from trusted sources like Consumer Reports, Edmunds, and Kelley Blue Book, it's hard to keep up with them all.
Subaru combines their impressive engineering with some amazing charitable initiatives, as well. In the five years since the annual Share the Love Campaign began, Subaru has donated $25 million to organizations such as the Alzheimer's Association, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels, and the USO. As pet lovers, their close partnership with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals warms our hearts, as well. We've been encouraging our shoppers to bring their dogs with them since we opened our doors, and if selling a "Dog Tested, Dog Approved" vehicle means we get to see more of our four-legged friends in the showroom, we're all for it! Sorry, Sharks, you're still not allowed.
A Reminder to our faithful Suzuki owners:
Given your Suzuki automobile is still inside its warranty period, your vehicle is covered. American Suzuki Motor Corporation's initial announcement still holds true, and will for the next 7 years:
"Consistent with ASMC's long history of standing by its products, owners of Suzuki automobiles will be protected. All warranties will continue to be fully honored and automobile parts and service will be provided to consumers without interruption through ASMC's parts and service dealer network."
Thus, the new Subaru of Wichita will be here to serve your Suzuki parts and service needs (we told you it was a tongue twister!) through the duration of your warranty, and we will do so with our meticulous attention to customer service.
Your new Subaru of Wichita is powered by the same great Suzuki of Wichita people, and ultimately, that's what matters most?the people.
If you have any questions, please contact us. We will be here to serve you, like always, 6 days a week (closed Sunday for Family and Worship).
