Sometimes the big sister has to show her younger sisters the way. And, when it came to what car to drive, that’s just what happened. It may have taken a while, but all three of the Chlopecki sisters (Cathy, Jane, and Jonie) now drive Subaru vehicles.


In December of 2005, it was time for Cathy to purchase a new car. After some time looking, she decided to buy the newly styled 2005 Subaru Outback L.L.Bean® Edition wagon. It didn’t take long for Cathy to fall in love with her new Willow Green over Moss Green Subie. As a typical Subaru owner will do, she bragged about her car to others, including her two younger sisters.


Fast forward a bit to the fall of 2008, and, because of an accident that totaled her car, little sis Jonie (the youngest) needed a new car for personal and business use. After talking to big sis Cathy, Jonie headed to her Subaru dealer. Less than one week later, Jonie was the proud owner of a Sage Green Metallic 2009 Forester 2.5X Limited. And, just like her big sister, Jonie immediately became a loyal Subaru owner. Two down, one to go.


All of the discussions among the sisters reminded the middle sister, Jane, that it may be time for a new car. Jane spends lots of time on the New York State Thruway driving 100 miles to the Syracuse, New York, area to visit her grandson, so a car that could get her through less than ideal weather conditions was a must. Having two sisters with Subaru vehicles kind of made the decision easy for Jane. So, she drove away with a 2009 Diamond Gray Metallic Outback 2.5 XT Limited.

It all started with a mother’s instinct back in 2003, when my mother felt the Subaru Outback fit her needs and purchased the versatile wagon. Shortly after, my father continued the Subaru way when he purchased his first “new” vehicle in more than 16 years – a shiny Forester with a sunroof that outshines all others in size.
I continued with the family tradition by purchasing my Legacy the same month I graduated from college in 2004.
Finally, my fiancĂ© purchased his own Subaru – a Legacy GT Limited in 2005.


Our German shepherd, Buca, “guards” the Subaru vehicles like they are her own! These cars have survived many snowstorms and harsh weather conditions in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. We love our AWD!
