What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

How is McGrath Evanston Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

McGrath Evanston Subaru is committed to the Subaru Love Promise! We work with and actively participate with numerous local charities, faith-based groups, and service organizations. At McGrath Evanston Subaru we have developed Lease4Love. Every time someone leases a new Subaru at McGrath Evanston Subaru we donate $50 to charity. For example, in the fall of 2021, a sizable Lease4Love donation is being made to the local school districts to help provide school supplies, including backpacks, headphones, pens, crayons, water bottles, and healthy snacks.
