What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

How is Subaru of El Cajon dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Here’s what love means to us here at Subaru El Cajon Love can be defined in many ways, to be sure. At Subaru of El Cajon, however, we define love as "Having a great interest and pleasure in something." To us, love is providing a great experience for all our guests and making sure everyone has an extraordinary time when they visit us. Our Love Promise to all our guests: • We promise to treat everyone with respect and have empathy with and for them at all times. • We promise to appreciate each and every guest interaction, before, during, and after the sale. • We promise to be open and honest so we may earn the trust of our guests. Why do we have a Customer Love Manager? We work very hard to make sure every guest is completely satisfied. And if we ever fail to meet or exceed our Love Promises, we want to know about it. That's why we have our Customer Love Manager, Randall. Our Customer Love Manager is here to take care of our guests whenever there’s a question or a concern, so a successful outcome can be reached, and everyone is happy.

Superb Customer Service - Wendy W

I was having challenges getting GPS voice commands from my iPhone paired with my new Forester and had watched more than enough YouTube videos that never addressed my situation. I was thoroughly frustrated. I thought I’d stop by the El Cajon location, where I purchased my car, to see if they could help me. A sales person introduced me to Bexi…which turned out to be the best thing in my day! Cheerfully, she walked out to my car, she tried a few things and voilà… situation resolved. Then we talked about future servicing on the car and we went to the Service Department, where she introduced me to the manager. He looked up the details on my car and let me know when servicing was due. I was impressed not only at Bexi’s professionalism and expertise, but also in how she presented the solution in a kind and thoughtful manner. I know it’s not easy to teach someone of my age (over 70!) the newer apps and technology, and she did it gently and we both enjoyed the experience! It’s rare these days when someone will actually get up out of their seat to assist and do it with a smile, to boot! My hat’s off to Bexi and her excellent service. I will remember her manner for a long time.

Superb Customer Service

Bexy was amazing! - Paul B

I met with Bexy one week after I bought my Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid and she showed me what each of the features on the car did. It made a big difference in my overall peace of mind that I bought the right car. She was amazingly patient and understanding while explaining the many features including how the battery save and charge modes worked.

Bexy was amazing!

Love Encore - Janice P

I met Bexzaida Lucero at El Cajon Subaru while waiting for my first service on my Outback. Even though I bought it at another dealership, she was happy to make an appointment for me to meet with her to learn more about all the many features on my car. The sales people at the dealership where I bought it weren’t able to show me anything upon delivery as they were short staffed due to COVID-19. She was patient and answered all my many questions and I even got a $25 gas card which I really appreciate! These cars have so many features and who really wants to sit and read the big manuals when you can have someone show you how it all works in person, which is how a lot of us learn! I have had several other cars and have never been offered anything like the Subaru Love-Encore visit and highly recommend it! Janice Philips

Subaru Loves to Care at Sharp Grossmont Hospital - Amber S

On June 23, in partnership with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Subaru of El Cajon donated 80 plush blankets and 10 arts & crafts kits to the David & Donna Long Cancer Center at Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa. The manager of the Sharp Grossmont Radiation Oncology Department, Gerry Rodriguez, shares about the experience. “We are deeply appreciative of the donation. It can be difficult to receive a cancer diagnosis, and our patients often face physical and emotional challenges when undergoing treatment. The blankets and art kits will go a long way in giving them comfort, warmth and support.” The David & Donna Long Cancer Center is a comprehensive outpatient center that provides advanced cancer care for the communities of East County. Subaru of El Cajon is one of the many Subaru retailers nationwide participating in the Subaru Loves to Care program. This program has allowed Subaru retailers across the nation to donate over 230,000 blankets and 31,000 arts and crafts kits, along with care, hope, and information about cancer support available through the LLS. Sharp Grossmont Hospital and Subaru of El Cajon have partnered together in the past of other philanthropic events outside of this program. This is the seventh year in a row that LLS has been selected by Subaru of America to carry out their Subaru Loves to Care program across the nation.

Subaru Supports Grossmont Hospital Foundation - Sami H

Subaru of El Cajon came out to Singing Hills Golf Resort at Sycuan on April 21, 2022 to support Grossmont Hospital Foundation's 38th Annual Golf Tournament. Grossmont Hospital Foundation was raising funds for the new Sharp Grossmont Hospital Neurosciences Center which will be a center of excellence for neurosurgical, neurological, and orthopedic-spine care. The Neurosciences Center will be a jewel of the community helping those in East County San Diego and the greater San Diego area as a whole. Subaru participated with brining out a brand new vehicle that golfers could win if they hit a hole in one shot. While golfers waited to tee off they were able to check out the vehicle and were able to see the great features of Subaru. In total Grossmont Hospital Foundation was able to raise $425,000 that will be matched by Grossmont Healthcare District to be a grand total of $850,000.

Bexzaida the technology explainer - Cathleen M

I thought I was good at technology, but there is so much to learn about the Crosstrek console that I felt afraid to touch many of the buttons because I did not now how to work them! After spending my hour + appointment with Bexzie, I really understand my vehicle. She not only understands the technology of the cars, but more importantly, she can explain it so you can understand it. I am 77 and now I am in a car with a lot of safety features that I understand and use; it makes the car more fun to drive!

"Check" out how much Subaru Loves their community! - Helen Z

Paul Fillmore, General Manager and Randall Blaum, Customer Love Manager, attended the East County Transitional Living Center 13th Annual Gala on Thursday, March 31. They watched thoughtfully as a video of testimonies from several of the men and women in different phases of our program told of the pain and heartache that led them to the doors of ECTLC and how their lives have changed. The joy and gratitude of these and others in our programs was easy to see that night. The tables were set-up, decorated, and served by the very folks that were benefiting from the funds raised that night. Each and every person that worked on the event was a member of our staff or in one of our programs. As the evening came to a close Michelle Metschel, Deputy Mayor of El Cajon, made the request for everyone to dig deep and help support the work that ECTLC provides to those in need that are truly looking for a better life. Paul Fillmore and Randall Blaum came forward carrying a large cardboard and made a presentation to Jim Robinson, Board Chair and Ivan Andujar, CEO, of a check in the amount of $11,000 and made a speech to encourage others to give. ECTLC is very grateful to Subaru Share the Love, Subaru of El Cajon, Paul Fillmore, Randall Blaum and all the staff and customers that have made this donation possible.
