Dear Thomas: Please note the attached photo of my precious Subaru Forester 2016 this July 4th. And note that this wonderful car SAVED MY LIFE. I originally bought this vehicle from HERITAGE SUBARU, Owings Mills Maryland upon recommendations from so many people and because I was aware of it's safety record after my own personal research. Yes, I did sustain injuries from the airbags (the worst being from the knee airbags.) However, being 78 yrs. Old and having sustained no head injury, no broken bones, and no cuts…. I will accept bruises and burns from the airbags in a heartbeat!!! It is also very telling that every first responder, hospital personnel, insurance agents, and the fire department, ALL recognized the safety features and safety record of Subaru vehicles in general. And when my husband advised me that I could choose any new vehicle I wanted, My response was, “I WANT ANOTHER SUBARU FORESTER.” (I love the outback also but the Forester has plenty of room for me since my children and grandchildren are all grown up.) My appreciation for what your engineering department does is very high. In fact, your entire Company is EXCELLENT. STARLINK also gets a huge shout out!!!! Within a couple of seconds, I heard a loud voice asking me if I was okay several times, advising me all the proper emergency first responders had been alerted, and shouting at me to get out of the car immediately because it was smoking. They kept making sure I was responding to them. Please know how appreciative I am from the bottom of my heart. Heritage General Manager, Shawn Davie has been VERY customer oriented as I have come to expect from HERITAGE SUBARU and Scott Fader in particular. An accident like mine is very traumatic. Shawn Davie has been amazing. Barbara Friedman (moosepip@comcast.net) 504 Old Crossing Drive Baltimore MD 21208

Thank you Subaru

Heritage Owings Mills Subaru Love Fighting Cancer - Vivienne S

Heritage Subaru Owings Mills “Shared the Love” with the American Cancer Society and rose to the challenges brought on by COVID-19, making an incredible impact on the fight against cancer. The Subaru dealership did an excellent job of keeping their customers and staff healthy and safe during the pandemic by observing safety protocols while delivering outstanding service. Their team spirit persevered during the 2020 Heritage Subaru Owings Mills Share the Love campaign resulting in an incredible $17,201 donation that comprised a significant part of the $52,327.61 check presented to the American Cancer Society in May. The Share the Love donation will not only help fund free cancer patient services, including free transportation to treatment and the 24/7 American Cancer Society hotline at 1-800-227-2345 that is staffed by trained cancer information specialists, but also fuel new cancer research breakthroughs and discoveries to help find new cures. Heritage Subaru Owings Mills Manager Shawn Davie presented the Share the Love check to the American Cancer Society along with two other MileOne Autogroup Subaru dealers: Heritage Subaru Catonsville and Herb Gordon Subaru that were part of this collective Share the Love gift.

Heritage Subaru Helps a Senior Dog Find a Home! - Erin H

Louie is a senior pit bull type dog, who at 8 years old loves to cuddle after going for a short gentle walk. Always a staff and volunteer favorite at the Maryland SPCA, Louie was adopted back in 2019, but was unfortunately returned to the shelter when his owner faced pandemic related financial hardships. But thanks to Heritage Subaru Owings Mills, Louie did not have to stay in the shelter long. Louie came out to visit the dealership one Tuesday afternoon for a dogs day out and photo shoot. After getting some great glamour shots by the display cars, Louie happily toured around the dealership getting pats and scratches from the employees. The photos from the excursion were posted on social media and helped get Louie a new home in no time at all! Louie wasn't even available for a week before he got picked up by his new mom, a first time dog owner who could not be more excited to bring this giant snuggle buddy home. Thanks to Heritage Subaru for all your support and helping Louie find his forever home!

Heritage Subaru serving the Hope Lodge residents - Shawn D

Greg Jacobson and Shawn Davie had the pleasure of serving the residents of Hope Lodge in Baltimore. For anyone who does not know, the Hope Lodge provides lodging for patients who are receiving cancer treatment at any of the cancer facilities in Baltimore. They also provide transportation to and from the cancer facilities as well. We had a great time serving some great food and hearing some of the stories of how cancer has affected their lives and how they are fighting this terrible disease. The mood was very positive as the patients we encouraged one another as they enjoyed the food. This is a great charity in the city of Baltimore and helps people in their time of need. I would encourage everyone to take a look and consider helping out as the Hope Lodge is making a difference right here in our city.

Heritage Subaru Owings Mills Hope Lodge Dinner - Vivienne S

Last September, the thoughtful employees of Heritage Subaru of Owings Mills hosted a lovely Italian dinner to the guests at the American Cancer Society’s Baltimore Hope Lodge – a free home-away-from-home for cancer patients who travel from out of town to Baltimore for cancer treatment. Heritage Subaru staff spent the evening serving dinner to patients and caregivers at the lodge and joined them in the dining room to share food, fellowship and good conversation. The dinner was one of 12 wonderful monthly dinners hosted by members of MileOne Autogroup at Baltimore Hope Lodge during 2019. This fabulous partnership with the American Cancer Society will continue through 2020 and helps support patients through their treatment journey. The lodge has a kitchen so that guests can prepare their own meals, however when community groups, such as Heritage Subaru of Owings Mills, host dinner, their gesture alleviates the work of meal preparation and offers welcome companionship for the lodge’s residents, most of whom stay for many weeks or even months during extensive cancer treatment. Baltimore Hope Lodge is one of 32 American Cancer Society Hope Lodges across the country. Photo, serving food: Robert Lee (dark hair), General Manager; Shawn Davie, General Manager.

Heritage Subaru Owings Mills loves Pets. There is no bond like the one between a human and a pet. Our sales manager Greg Jacobson witnessed this first hand. He went to two events with ASPCA and Fallston animal rescue. Heritage Subaru donated a check to ASPCA and had every animal parent leave with Subaru dog toys, bandannas, bowls, and a new parent kit courtesy of the Heritage Subaru. As a part of this great event, Greg Jacobson daughter Kylie was also a new animal parent. Taking home her new friend in their 2019 Ascent.
