Subaru has been named the ‘Most Recommended Manufacturer’ in the 2014 WeLoveAnyCar Awards – a result based on car reviews from 663,307 owners writing on the WeLoveAnyCar website.
Based on ‘real world’ experience of living with their car day to day, Subaru owners consistently praised their cars, among other things for ride quality, fine handling, the high level of driving confidence and stability provided by the All-Wheel Drive as well as its record for reliability and durability.
The results ensured the Japanese AWD brand scored the highest average score for owner satisfaction.
WeLoveAnyCar’ commented on Subaru’s award-winning owner satisfaction, saying: “Well done to Subaru for beating all its rivals to be the most recommended manufacturer in the collective verdicts of owners. That is some achievement ahead of so many other well-respected brands. It makes it very obvious how enamoured those who drive them are and the cars also come well up the list for reliability.”
Neville Matthews, managing director of Subaru Ireland, commented: “This result echoes the simple message that we hear every day from our customers and dealer network – that Subaru owners love their cars.
“It’s immensely satisfying to see so many owners appreciate every aspect of their cars, from the all-round practicality of the Forester and the comfort of the Outback, to the economy of the new Impreza, and the blistering performance of the WRX STI and world-beating handling finesse of a BRZ.”

Subaru sales in the UK are UP 25% year-to-date in the UK at end November (Source SMMT) and UP 47% in Northern Ireland over the same period.
“Sales in Northern Ireland are growing at twice the national success rate which is phenomenal,” said Matthews.
“All our customer feedback suggests that we have a growing band of followers who like the go-anywhere, anytime 24/7/365 driving ability of Subaru’s AWD system – so important for rural customers.
“Allied with Japanese build quality and a five year warranty it’s a potent argument that’s clearly making more and more friends in the Northern Ireland market.”
