The Stanley Subaru Scoop

Good news pouring out of Stanley Subaru!


We are happy to say the state of Maine confirms that we have some of the best possible water you can drink! Not only was everything good and at acceptable levels, we had some of the best possible readings in almost every category! Which means not only is our water great, but whenever you have tea, coffee, or cocoa, you're getting some great quality brew!

We also have loads of great news from our service department! Chris Williams passed his final ASE in December and is officially Subaru Master Certified!
