Where To Go This Spring So You Don’t Get Hounded By A Subaru Salesperson

Would you like a relaxed experience when looking at a new Subaru Forester, Crosstrek, or Outback? Here’s how to avoid a salesperson, and check out the top Subaru models this spring.

If a car salesperson has ever hounded you, you know how annoying it is. You only want to look at a new car without being assaulted in the parking lot. There’s a way to check out a new Subaru Outback, Crosstrek, or Forester without the car salesperson hassle. 

How Can You Avoid Being Hounded By A Car Salesperson?

Subaru has what it calls its annual Subaru Road Trip events. They take new models like the Outback Wilderness and Crosstrek Wilderness to REI stores nationwide, and you can look hassle-free. Check out these comments from Reddit.

The Camden, N.J. automaker is holding events all over the country in April, so it’s the perfect time to check out a new Subaru model before summer arrives.

Are You Gearing Up For A Trip Outdoors?

“Then you don’t want to miss the Subaru Road Trip at select REI Co-op stores. We’re bringing together the versatile, all-electric Solterra, the off-road-ready Crosstrek Wilderness, and Subaru’s favorite car camping gear to power your next adventure.” 

Subaru goes on to say, “Check out camp-ready gifts for Subaru owners and REI members (while supplies last) and enter for a chance to win Subaru’s Car Camping Favorites, including an REI Co-op Cycles bike, a Thule bike rack, and a car camping bundle.”

Can You Get Free Stuff From Subaru?

Whenever the Subaru Road Trip event is in Denver, Colorado, I make sure I am there. Because I’m a Subaru owner, I get a goodie bag filled with cool stuff for my car. 

Last year, I got a free Subaru pin, a travel bag, and a cool towel from Nomadix to use while camping. There was also a free giveaway for a Thule rooftop tent. Unfortunately, I didn’t win that. 

Check the schedule below for the event nearest you, grab your camping crew, and maybe I’ll see you at the Denver REI on May 10-12!
