1. Outstanding Reliability

Subaru consistently scores in the top 5 automakers for reliability. The latest ranking is based on Consumer Report's 2015 Annual Auto Reliability Survey that uses data from more than 740,000 vehicles. The powertrain is made to last on these vehicles. They can be driven in and around the Kansas City area or off-road and beyond without issues every occurring.

Buying a used Subaru from Lee's Summit Subaru may make you the second owner of a Subaru vehicle, but the car you buy will likely outlast any other brand you could have chosen - even if you purchased new.

2. Excellent Selection

We believe that there is no other dealership in the Kansas City region that possesses the impressive selection and lineup of Lee's Summit Subaru. No matter what model of Subaru you're seeking, it can be found in our inventory, or we will source it for you if it's not already in stock.

3. Used Subarus Retain their Value

Subaru vehicles are fuel efficient, come standard with many high-tech enhancements, and have one of the best all-wheel drive systems ever made, making the driving experience almost priceless. Pre-owned Subarus retain their value very well, making them one of the most popular brands of cars bought used.

4. Fantastic Engineering

Intelligent engineering is at the heart of what makes a Subaru a Subaru. A horizontally-opposed boxer engine is unlikely to be found in most other makes of cars. This type of engine allows for the ideal combination of balance, power, and efficiency. The boxer engine allows any model of Subaru to be fuel efficient despite its all-wheel drive capability. It is also considered a more dependable engine than inline and V-type engines.

All- or four-wheel drive is not a feature that is unique to Subaru; however, symmetrical AWD is. The boxer engine allows for a symmetrical AWD which successfully prevents slippage and sliding in any road condition. This is one quality that makes Subarus the safest vehicles a person could drive.

5. Exemplary Safety

It's worth mentioning that Subaru was named the only automaker with IIHS Top Safety Picks for all models for five consecutive years. Yes, you heard right - all models. No matter which model of Subaru you choose, it's incomparably safe. Symmetrical AWD is one component making Subarus safe, but so is Subaru's ring-shaped reinforced frame and safety brake pedal system. These two features protect the passengers and the driver.

6. Class-leading Gas Mileage

AWD vehicles can be gas hogs. However, Subaru is the exception to that rule. When endowed with a 4-cylinder engine, Subaru sedans have a fuel economy rating of 36 mpg on the highway and about 26 mpg in the city. But no power is lost to this efficiency: the Legacy, for example, still sustains an output of 175 horsepower via its 2.5-liter engine.

7. Accessible Affordability

For the value, reliability and safety found in every Subaru, they still remain competitively priced. The base model Forester, for example, is priced around $22,000.

There are many reasons to buy a used Subaru. Lee's Summit Subaru has experience of offering the best used Subarus to Kansas City and the surrounding area for more than 40 years.
