The 2021 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award

We've been nationally recognized for our dedication to our customers, our community, and the Subaru Love Promise.

We're honored to receive the 2021 Subaru Love Promise Customer and Community Commitment Award. This award nationally recognizes elite Subaru retailers who provide an exceptional customer experience at every interaction with Subaru. These retailers have also demonstrated an outstanding commitment to supporting passions and causes in their local communities in important areas such as the environment, community, health, education, and pets.


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 Schulte Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions. That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities. Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us. So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do. We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood. All of the organization we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of its people.

Kris Moe makes a difference! - Sarah S

Kris saw a accident, pulled around to see if everyone was ok and report if need. They towed the truck to our store and we gave the driver a loaner. He was very appreciative and Kris was happy to help! Thank you Kris!

Blake makes a difference! - Sarah S

Deputy Acosta with Lincoln County Sheriff Office stopped to help an elderly couple whose car had broken down off 85th street. Blake Hanson with Schulte Subaru was working and noticed they needed help getting the car started again. Blake went back inside the dealership and came back with a starter pack and was able to get the car running. Little deeds in the community go a long way for others! Thank you Blake!

Christmas Spirit Story - Sarah S

A customer came in today that purchased a used car from us about a month ago. Her check engine light came on and so she brought it to our service department. After diagnosing the problem, we found out that something had eaten through some wiring. She asked if we could pay for it and we explain to her that this happened in her possession and not ours but I got to say "Merry Christmas we will cover it!" That’s why I love working at the store because we just take care of our customers above and beyond! From Taylor Welk

Christmas Spirit Story

Lets get into the Giving Spirit - Sarah S

Mike and Sarah Schulte got an idea from church on Sunday about giving cash out and asking staff to do something with it to help others. They could not keep the cash. Then they need to share their story in email so we can all enjoy the good acts of helping others. Attached is the message along with $100 that was in each envelope for 100 employees.

A fun email to receive - Sarah S

Mike & Sarah,I just want to let you know the amazing service I have experienced at Schulte. I did not buy my car there, but that didn't make any difference in the service provided. Being a travel nurse, I rely heavily on my vehicle - Schulte has been there every step of the way of figuring out the issue with my car.The first person I spoke to was Travis. His calm demeanor and kindness at a very stressful time was exactly what I needed. Jen K has been my main point of contact and I can't say enough good about her. Today I was in again and am so thankful for amazing service and staff. Every team member I encountered this morning made frustrating news a bit easier to deal with. The piece that really made my day when one of your team members gave me this key ring - a gesture that really made my day. Thanks, Jill Beaudin

From Jeremy Griffeth! - Sarah S

If this isn’t a love promise with total teamwork I don’t know what is. Lisa took a call from an instructor with a High School stating that they know what we do for the community and wanted to call us first. She has a “unaccompanied, homeless” senior that was doing really good at attending school until recently when his car broke down. Lisa brought me the message. I called the instructor back and was able to get the students name and number. I went and talked with Travis about the situation and we decided to send a tow truck to pick up his car for diagnostics. We were able to repair the car yesterday and delivered it back to him at no charge. (He is staying with his girlfriends parents) Travis and I both decided that the Schultes would want it this way. Hopefully we made a difference in this young man's life. #teamwork

A helping hand - Sarah S

Kris Moe one of our managers helped a customer find the resources needed to assist in controls to utilize her vehicle without the use of her legs. Kris also helped find the resources for the controls to be installed. This all saved the customer time and hassle in a difficult situation.

Thanks to Blake! - Sarah S

Blake Hanson worked with 2 service technicians to stay late and assist a lady from out of town with an oil change and tire rotation. In doing this he was recognized by Subaru leadership in a job well done!

Thanks to Blake!

Sales manager goes the extra mile - Sarah S

Our sales manager Jeremy let a Subaru family stay in his residence when they were building a home and had covid at the same time. This space was not connected to where Jeremys family was staying so everyone was safe. They lived there for over 10 days until all were healthy again. Jeremy offers this space to friends who are in need for various reasons. His kind heart is an example for all.
