Vermont: Subaru Legacy

For some reason it isn’t much of a surprise that a Subaru is the most popular car in Vermont, according to Insurify, a car insurance quotes comparison website that analyzed 1.6 million car insurance applications to determine the most popular car in each state. Even Subaru employees joked that the car was the official state car of Vermont. So what makes Subaru so popular in Vermont? One, the all-wheel drive is an attractive option in the snowy and mountainous area. Two, a little inventive marketing helped. Road and Track recounted how Subaru rose to popularity in Vermont in part because of a horrendous review in Consumer Reports of the first Subaru’s sold in the U.S. The U.S. division of Subaru decided to target areas where Consumer Reports had low circulation so buyers wouldn’t be dissuaded from purchasing a Subaru.

Subaru’s are known for their dependability, just like these cars almost guaranteed to last more than 250,000 miles.
