In 2016, that year’s Outback moved off dealer lots quicker than any other car in the U.S.


How long did it hang around?


The Subaru brand is still hot in 2018 – and looking ahead to 2019 – so it’s no surprise that the 2016 Outback wagon was the hottest-selling car in America.

We love to give back.


Several years ago, on October 18, 2015, Angela Battista from our Honda store organized a Breast Cancer Awareness Walk for the employees of Serra Auto Park (formerly Park Auto Group).

We were able to present three SUV's full of food during the Green High School boys soccer game on one Saturday evening.

It’s been a few years since we had this event, but we continue to pull together, gather our resources and work to conquer childhood…
