    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!

    Jorge and Jean provided an outstanding experience!"

    - cnrd9590

    I was recently in a wreck, where my 2013 Legacy got totaled. I worked with Jorge Navarro and Jean Jovin to get back into my own vehicle, and I could not have asked for a better car-buying experience. I was never pressured and all my questions were answered. They took care of everything I needed to get back on the road in a 2018 Legacy. Working with these gentlemen (and Anchor in general) was by far the smoothest and least-stressful part of dealing with the fallout of a car accident. I give this my highest recommendation. Thank you!

    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

    Just purchased my 2019 wrx sti limited. My salesman was Michael Hersey. Michael went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied in every possible way. He is a very personable person and a huge subaru fanatic, as am I. If you are in the market for a new or used car i could recommend seeing him. He will work with you, he isnt pushy and in the end wants you to be satisfied with your decision and the deal that is made. He truly cares about his clients and makes you feel special.

    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."

    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

    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."

    "This is the second time I've purchased from Anchor..." - juliaapalmieri2792

    This is the second time I've purchased from Anchor Subaru, and I've had two great experiences. Back in June of 2019, I worked with Jorge and Kelly to purchase my 2019 Subaru Forester. The process was seamless, and they worked with me on a fair price for my budget. Unfortunately, I was rear ended in a car accident, and my car was totaled. When it came time to purchase another vehicle, I knew exactly where to go - back to Jorge at Anchor Subaru. This time, my husband and I opted for a used 2016 Subaru Forester as I am now 7 months pregnant and we needed something safe and reliable but wanted to lower our monthly payment. Jorge helped us find the perfect vehicle for us, made sure I was comfortable with the price, and even added an automatic starter and brand new tires for "the baby." I've never felt so well taken care of, and it made a really stressful experience easy and painless. Thank you, Jorge for servicing my family TWICE with kindness, compassion and understanding. Hopefully we won't have to purchase another Subaru for quite some time; but when we do, it's back to Jorge we go!!!

    We have been coming to Anchor for service on both our 06 Outback and 07 Forrester. Simply put the service is top notch. Brian Douglas, Mike Plante and the rest of service team have gone out of their way to make sure we were taken care of.
    So, a couple of weeks ago my wife's Forrester decide to have some issues and was just not worth fixing. So, we sat down with Jorge Navarro and he was able to hook us up with a 2018 Forrester. He was professional and patient with both us. He was able to answer all our questions and address any concerns.
    This organization is by far best at what they do and would recommend anytime. Keep up the great work.

    11/25/19- I was so happy with the service and sales dept on the purchase of our 18 Forrester. I went ahead and traded my 06 Outback for a brand new 2019 Crosstrek. Great car and Jorge did a great job ! - James Callahan

    Extremely impressed by my experience at Anchor Subaru. The purchase process was smooth and stress free. My sales rep Gladimir was knowledgeable and got me the car with the options I wanted at a great price. This is my first Subaru. I've had Audis, Mercedes, Lexus and Infinitis prior. The service I've received at Anchor is easily equal or better to what I've experienced at those luxury car dealerships. Anchor's spotless drive in service department, friendly service advisors and quality maintenance is second to none. If you are in the market for a Subaru, or need service for your current vehicle, they're the best!

    My wife and I stopped at Anchor Subaru to test drive an Ascent. We were greeted by Gladimir Guerrier, one of the sales consultants, when we arrived and we explained what we were looking for. We took a couple Ascents out for test drives and the vehicles could have sold themselves, but Gladimir also thoroughly explained and demonstrated the features of the cars. He was very friendly, easy to work with and was truly interested in making sure we were happy with any decision we would make. We bought an Ascent that day and are very happy with it. I had some questions after driving it for a few days and Gladimir was available by phone to answer all my questions. I stopped at Anchor, unannounced, when the registration was ready and Gladimir saw me when I walked in. He stopped what he was doing to go get my paperwork and then sat down with me for a while to make sure my wife and I were completely happy with the new car and the service from Anchor. It was by far the best experience I have had when buying a vehicle. - John S

    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

    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.

    "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.

    I've had multiple instances of bad car-buying experiences BUT NOT the case with Anchor Subaru. No nonsense. Streamlined but not rushed! I felt as though they respected my time as much as I respected theirs. Grahm was my salesman and I really appreciated his approach. I have been a customer of Anchor service department for about two years as they provided service to my last Subaru and this experience confirms my desire to continue returning for future services and purchases.

    As I had mentioned before about my previous bad experiences with other dealers, this time I made sure to take my time and be sure to check out every inventory and offer from nearby Subaru dealers. The two other major Subaru dealers in the area could not begin to compare to how well Anchor took care of me. Their trade-in appraisal was higher and their sale-price offer was lower AND they were the only dealer in the area that actually had the exact year, make, model.

    I have nothing but good things to say! If you are considering purchasing a vehicle, do not skip Anchor Subaru. - Brian

    "Car buying with ease" - GMS25
    I had purchased my first Subaru from a different dealership and found getting service appointments to be challenging. They were booking out 6-8 weeks for routine service when I had called. So I called Anchor for servicing and found that they were more than eager to schedule timely appointments. Well, while waiting for my car for its oil change; I found an Outback in the showroom that I loved. I talked with Graham and within 45 minutes we came to an agreement and I purchased the car. Derek in the finance department was also great and went the extra mile to get me a lower interest rate. I have never had an easier car buying experience.

    November 2019
    "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.

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

    "New customer, new Subaru owner"

    - RagMan

    I consider myself a very experienced car buyer and in the past 48 years I bought only from a few well-known dealers in RI. I can say that I always had a reasonably good, better than average, experience with all of them. In early March I walked into Anchor Subaru looking to buy a new Subaru. This was also my first time visit to Anchor. Here is what I observed. #1) The place is spotless. The showroom, customer lounge, rest rooms and service area were all just perfect. To me, first impressions count and tell me a lot about a company. #2) I was greeted by a sales rep named Mohamed who was very cordial, attentive but not pushy and knowledgeable. I came to the decision that I would purchase a 2020 Outback Limited XT. I did extensive research on Subaru.com and had most of the information I needed. What information I missed on-line Mohamed explained perfectly to me and to the point. #3) The pricing and trade-in value I received was fair and honest. #4) That was it, I was sold. On pick up day all the sales paperwork was in order, the paperwork meeting with business manager Paul Zito went smoothly and timely. In short, my entire experience was excellent, from the time I walked into Anchor, to meeting sales manager Bob Volpi to the sales and selection process with Mohamed, to the business end with Paul Zito. The whole team could not have been more attentive and were just plain nice people! I love my new Outback and in all the years (50 plus years) I have been a car owner my Outback, by far, is one of the best, if not the best car in its class that I have ever driven and probably will ever own. If you are looking to buy a new Subaru from a dealer without hassles, pressure tactics and smoke and mirrors pricing gimmicks, Anchor is the place to go, Mohamed is the sales rep to work with as well as the rest of the team.



    January 2020
    Mohamed Elmasry, was very polite/friendly, very helpful, very knowledgeable and very thorough making my purchase process easier. Derrek was also very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with finances.

    I would recommend Anchor Subaru. I had a great experience and drove away with the vehicle I wanted. -Deborah Soucy

    December 2019
    Very responsive to online inquiries about their cars. Within about 15mins of sending one I already had a call from Joe to set up my test drive. Mohamed was my salesman and he was a very nice & organized man, and made sure I understood how the process worked. Love my new car, and would definitely refer Anchor to any friends! - Laura Rinaldi

    We went to Anchor on the recommendation of multiple friends who had good experiences. Jackie Lataille was fantastic to work with - patient, thoughtful and no pressure whatsoever. As first-time used car buyers, we went in guarded and uncertain about what to expect and Jackie went out of her way to put us at ease. She did extra research to answer our questions and encouraged us to take our time. We were visiting at their busiest time of the year, so this was doubly appreciated. Thanks Jackie! - Hannah Boettcher
