    Locally family owned and operated for over 30 years…. What does that mean for you?

    We are a local family. We were born here, grew up here, went to school here, raised our families here and started our business here. We are not a big corporately owned and run dealership where you are just another number. We have grown steadily over the years by being there for each and every one of our customers, never forgetting that this is our home.
    We invest in our local economy, employ hundreds of local folks, and make a conscious effort to give back through the Subaru Love Promise and to many other organizations. We see our customers every day at local events, restaurants, the gym or the local coffee shop and whether it's in those settings or at the dealership, we are here and available to help.
    That's right, we're here every day because we don't just own our dealership, we operate it as well. If you ever need us you know where you'll find us. So, stop in or call anytime and don't be too surprised when we pick up!

    Customer Review
    Hi Brian, Just bought a car for the first time at your dealership.  Mike Hersey helped me out.  This dude is a rockstar.  I went to a number of dealerships and other car places and talked to a lot of salesmen and by far Mike was the most helpful, kindest, and genuinely interested salesman I talked to.  Hes honestly one of a kind, he talked to my mother with respect, me with honesty, and always with kindness.  He was knowledgeable about all of the vehicles I asked about and helped guide me through the process of buying my first "new" car.  I felt his passion as he talked about his cars, and the cars I was interested in as he would talk about them as if he was trying to convince himself to buy the car.  He listened to my questions and answered them without flaw or hesitation.  This man truly made my car buying experience and I will be recommending anyone buying a car to head his was.  Cudos to you all for finding the right place for this fella, because he kills the game. Best, Nathan R

    September 2018 - Subaru Customer Survey - M. Reilly
    The process for obtaining the right vehicle for my family was flawless from start to finish with very positive results. Salesman Mike Hersey was polite, courteous and very knowledgeable and was able to provide us with the appropriate vehicle to suit our needs. 

    "My salesperson Michael Hersey was very knowledgeable and patient with all my questions. I never felt pressured or stressed. Even the last day of the final purchase, I went in thinking Michael was going to be quick with me as he needed to move on to the next deal. That was not the case. He spent a great amount of time with me and even went over a few more things when I was ready to drive off the lot."

    "Excellent"
    Ben was extremely helpful, honest, and worked with me taking his time to make sure the deal I got was the best possible option for me. Wonderful experience, I've always been an enthusiast but never had the dealer experience. I was blown away! -Andrew
    October 2019
    I showed up to the dealership in North Smithfield, Rhode Island already having a good idea what I was looking for after a couple days looking through their stock on their website. I showed up to test drive what I had been looking into; the charismatic fellow that greeted me after entering the door was Ben Rowan and he would become the salesman to handle my sale. He's extremely knowledgeable and friendly and helped me out tremendously. His job was very easy, he asked what I had been looking at then promptly went and got the Impreza. He went with what I said and that was it, he wasn't pushy about anything at all. We went on a nice test drive and after being totally impressed we continued on with paperwork. He made this a very painless experience and was very respectful. He followed up numerous times and made sure that I was comfortable and taken care of and I appreciate that. After a weekend of handling things, I financed my 2016 Impreza on the Monday and am enjoying it thoroughly.

    Ben Rowan and Anchor Subaru come highly recommended

    "Great dealer!"
    Patient sales force, fair pricing, easy transaction, dealer packs not an issue. Highly recommended! Ask for Ben Rowan for excellent knowledgeable sales advisor who is most professional. - Crystal White Rid

    April 2018 - F. Spadazzi
    I have a 3 years experience dealing with various members of the Anchor Subaru staff and regard this dealership and personnel as among the very best that I have done business with in my lifetime of owning vehicles.  As a result I have pretty high expectations whenever I have any dealings with Anchor Subaru at any level, sales or service. 

    "New showroom is very clean and user friendly… I am amazed how clean the bays [in service] were… It is worth the ride to check out the 'little Subaru car' sitting on top of the main entrance… Buying a new car is stressful but Ali was great and just wanted to help us out as much as possible… ANCHOR! YOU SHOULD BE VERY PROUD OF YOUR TEAM MEMBERS!"

    "Everything was absolutely wonderful. [Ali] went above and beyond in every way. Couldn't be happier."

    "I am absolutely thrilled with the way I was treated at Anchor. Ali, my sales rep, was fabulous. He was knowledgeable, courteous and thorough. He was always available and never seemed rushed or hurried."

    June 2019

    The first time I met Jorge, I knew he would be the person I wanted to buy a car from. After he introduced me to Bob, the sales manager, I knew I would buy my car from Anchor Subaru.

    A month later, I purchased my first Subaru!

    Both of these gentlemen treated me like a family member. Very personable, respectful, knowledgeable, but most important was the genuine personality of each one!

    The experience was impressive! There was a no pressure atmosphere. Jorge listened and was attentive to what vehicle would meet my needs. He took the time explaining each car and showed me how each different feature worked.

    I was very comfortable with Anchor and will certainly recommend them to family and friends. - Mae L.

    June 2019
    On my 3rd Forester & love my new Touring! Jorge took me through everything I needed to know about the car & was a pleasure to do business with. Mike did a great job helping me finish getting the technology set up. Another great experience, thanks Anchor Subaru! - E. Pinkham


    April 2019
    "New Subaru owner"
    From our on-line inquiry to our purchase, everything was great! I had contact by email (phone if preferred) after my on-line inquiry about a certain vehicle which I was told was pending sale. My husband and I went in to see it because they did have another one like it expected that night or at lest the next day. We were greeted by Jorge Navarro and discussed why we were there. He let us look at the car that we were interested in that was on hold in the showroom and then let us drive a similar one. Well, we loved it so we talked a little and then we discussed coming in once the other one was there, and, just as we were leaving, it arrived! We had a look at it and we decided then - that was the car! Made an appointment for another drive and final sale paperwork within a couple of days and it is now ours! Jorge made us feel welcomed and he gave us a tour of the facility and every employee we encountered said hello to us, very friendly. The have a very comfortable waiting area with wi-fi, a few private offices if customers prefer to wait for repairs and can work remote, and they also offer shuttle service if in for any type of repair. Jorge filled up our tank for us and surprised us with some all-weather mats when I asked about ordering some! We are now part of the Subaru Family! - JeanLW

    Gladimir was an excellent salesman and such a gentleman. Never rushed us. Answered all our questions. He did such a wonderful job when my husband and I test drove our Subaru Legacy especially when he drove the car first in the lot to show us all the safety features. Even when we picked up the car to take home, he took the time to set up our Bluetooth and reviewed everything with us. Thank you Anchor. - R. Boelter


    March 2019
    Great experience.
    My salesperson, Gladimer is extremely knowledgeable and is always willing to go out of his way to accommodate the customer's needs.
    This was the second car purchase with Glad. - C. Connolly

    February 14, 2019
    We were fed up with the other Subaru Dealership last fall. We wanted to see the 2019 Forester (our 4th generation). We met Peter. We told Peter what we wanted and when we planned on purchasing it. In the mean time we found out Anthony (from the place we left) was in the service department. He is the most awesome service person. Peter respected our wishes and when the car we wanted became available and during our time frame Peter contacted us. This is the first car we got that had everything we requested and we were never harassed with sales calls and email junk. We got the car that evening. What an incredible dealership. Thank you Peter and Anthony! - Wil

    October 2018 -  Review - DealerRater.com
    Friendly sales staff (Peter Frain). Great custom service. While pick up our new car, a old couple (return customer) asked Peter Frain saying they want to purchase a new car from him.

    May 2018  - G. Wolfe
    We have been Anchor customers for about 15 years and they always strive to satisfy us 100%.  Their prices are competitive, their service is exemplary, and everyone is professional and friendly.  And their product line is fantastic.  We love our Subaru's.

    We purchased the Subaru Ascent yesterday and it was a great experience. We are so pleased with the car, the staff and our sales person, Vincent Catauro. I know we will be well taken care of at this dealership. Thank you.

    December 2018
    "Great experience! "
    I worked with Vinny Catauro at Anchor and I felt very comfortable being honest about what I wanted and he gave me the facts. He worked with me over months to get the car I needed and was patient and informative. He and Paul really made my Christmas this year! I will definitely do business here again years down the line and will refer anyone to him. Great experience with a great company! - Nicole s.

    June 2018
    This is the fourth vehicle that I have purchased from Anchor Subaru.  I feel that they make the process simple and I have never felt pressured or stressed.  It is almost hard to rate this above expectations because I have come to expect Anchors purchase experience. - R. Limoges

    July 2019
    I was searching for a new car and had been to several dealers my sister recommended we go to Anchor...she told me her son in law loves it at Anchor. They were both correct. You are greeted to a clean State of the Art Facility, Friendly staff, no pressure, they all work together, they take the mindset of if one succeeds all succeed..Josh was my Salesman he went above and beyond. In my sale and afterwards...I had accidentally left 3 personal items in the car I traded in. Josh personally retrieved them even before I knew I forgot them and put them in his desk...Every staff member is kind and willing to help...one of the owners has a desk right in the service area...it was an amazing experience and I highly recommend them and Josh as your go to dealer you won't be disappointed..they earn your business the correct way..with honesty and trust. - Gi Gi Sandra Spencer Collins

    "Very professional and helpful!" - Cookie's Parents
    I found this car on the WEB as we live in Maine. A very rare find and exactly what I wanted … a 2014 Subaru Tribeca with low miles and the last year they were made. I loved the two previous ones I owned and wanted another to last me forever. The team at Anchor were very helpful, patient and honest. They met the deal I wanted. It was one of the best "buying a car" experiences I have ever had, and I have had many. Thanks again to all the team at Anchor. Graham Reed was the salesman.

    Overall this was a great car buying experience. Kevin was very upfront about everything. When I wanted to see the car it was pouring outside. He had the car taken inside so I could see the vehicle I was purchasing. I had already test driven an Outback so that was not necessary. -Patricia Fillipino

    Mohammed and Jean made our experience buying a new car fast and stress free. They work hard to get me the car I wanted for the price I can afford. I highly recommend Anchor Subaru for anyone looking to buy a new car or in my case trade in a car :) - Lindy Williams

    November 2019
    I had a wonderful experience buying a car here. I was seen as soon as I walked in, test drove a car and was off the lot everything hassle free in 2 hours. I wasn't upsold on anything and I found exactly what I needed. Mohammad was an excellent salesman! I will definitely purchase another car here again. - Mike Horton



    November 2019

    I cannot say enough good things about Mohamed Elmasry. I went around to a bunch of dealerships looking at other vehicles and the way Mohamed does business is the way you're supposed to! He listens to what you ask and is very understanding that time is valuable while also ensuring the best service. He is price conscious and so accommodating. I feel very comfortable purchasing my vehicle because of him. Subaru is a great vehicle but Mohamed is what kept me at Anchor Subaru to purchase it. He has also helped my grandmother on leasing her subaru and she is equally as happy with him + the vehicle. I would gladly refer him to anyone in the market for a vehicle. Thanks for making us feel like family Mahomid! - Brittany Carey
