Community Closet gets a van

A happy group of people standing around a van

Brown Appliance and Mattress and Stanley Subaru gave Community Closet a van.

It may not seem like much, but a van is a very big deal for the nonprofit. Before the ink was dry on the paperwork making everything official, Community Closet proprietor Jackie Wycoff was already telling Jason Brown and Mark Politte how having the van would free up storage space to allow for faster sorting of donations. That, in turn, would lead to more clothes and goods available for customers and people in need.

Car care tips to save you money and increase your trade-in value

Put frankly, simple maintenance tasks keep your Subaru in top running condition which ultimately saves you money, because timely maintenance does more than keep your Subaru running smoothly; it can increase your car's trade-in value, improve its mileage, and save you time and costly repairs down the road.

Coolant

Check the level of coolant in your radiator by looking at the coolant overflow tank. Maintaining proper antifreeze will keep your engine cool in hot weather and prevent damage when temperatures fall as low as 40 below zero.

What do I need to know about shocks and struts?

Shocks and struts are the bits of your car that keep you from scraping the the bottom of your car on the road but also make it so you don't feel every little bump. Without shocks and struts, your vehicle would continually bounce and bound down the road. While it looks fun in rally video, experiencing it going to work is a real bummer.

Since winter is the time of frost heaves and infinite potholes, it's a good idea to check that shocks and struts are in top condition during the winter months.

Check engine light

When you start your vehicle, the check engine light comes on momentarily to test the engine/emission control system and bulb. The system is self-diagnostic and the light is a way to communicate trouble. The system is designed to function in a "limp home" mode when trouble occurs and the light comes on - and stays on. However, take your vehicle to an authorized Subaru dealer right away.

Doggie details

Fluffy little muddy dog holding a brush

You take your dog in your vehicle with you because of course you do. Why have a dog if you're not going to spoil it, after all? Camping, hiking, or just sunny days in a park are all great excuses for a drive with your canid comrade. But as a dog owner, you know that a regular vacuum isn't going to pick up dog fur out of upholstery. If you just want your car clear of doggie detritus without necessarily springing for the full shebang to make your vehicle like-new, we offer a doggie detail just for you…

Battery maintenance

All Subaru vehicles are equipped with maintenance-free batteries. The term "maintenance-free" can be misleading, though, because these batteries do require some attention to keep them clean and efficient.

It is really important to have your car's battery checked by a Subaru-trained technician regularly. A battery check includes examining cable connections for cleanliness and tightness. Loose or corroded connections can drastically diminish your car's starting power.
