Subaru is celebrating a big milestone here in the U.S., where it delivered its nine-millionth vehicle this week. The vehicle with the honors: a 2018 50th Anniversary Edition Crosstrek.
The nine-millionth vehicle was sold by Adventure Subaru in Fayetteville, Arkansas to Dr. Hershey Garner, a repeat Subaru customer. After taking delivery of his new Crosstrek, Garner was greeted by Don Nelms, owner of Adventure Subaru, along with his staff and Ali Daniel and Brian Wilson from Subaru of America.
“I’ve been waiting for the right Subaru to come along,” said Garner, “and found the perfect one on Adventure Subaru’s website, the 50th Anniversary Edition Crosstrek. It has all the features I was looking for, and the color and size are the perfect fit.”
Dr. Garner, also the proud owner of a 2005 Subaru Baja, has specialized as a radiation oncologist in Northwest Arkansas for over 30 years. Garner and his family are active in their local community. He supports Circle of Life Hospice and fills in as a staff physician. His wife Denise has served on the board of Feed Communities, one of Adventure Subaru’s Share the Love local charity recipients.
Garner was presented with several gifts and a charitable donation on his behalf to Feed Communities, which works with individuals, organizations, schools, universities, government agencies, and foundations to create sustainable partnerships for increasing access to healthy foods and improving healthy food choices within the local community.
Adventure Subaru is also active in community outreach and environmental stewardship and has been a certified Subaru Eco-Friendly Retailer since 2012.
