Subaru Share the Love Going on Now
Amazing things can happen when a car is fueled by love—especially during the Subaru Share the Love Event. Subaru Superstore of Chandler will donate $500 to CEF, when you buy/lease a new Subaru before January 3. You’ll be getting a great vehicle, while supporting your fellow Chandler teachers and students with scholarships! So, if you’re in the market for a car you’ll love, come to the Subaru Superstore and see just how much farther love goes in a Subaru. We have until January 3 to reach our $36,000 goal.
