CHERRY HILL, NJ — Subaru of America, Inc. has sold its nine-millionth vehicle in the U.S.  The new owner took delivery of a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek at a Subaru dealership in Arkansas.  A surprise celebration followed with the facility’s owner and staff and Subaru of America representatives in attendance.

The nine-millionth vehicle was sold by Adventure Subaru in Fayetteville, Arkansas to Dr. Hershey Garner, a repeat Subaru customer.  After taking delivery of his new Crosstrek, Garner was greeted by Don Nelms, owner of Adventure Subaru, along with facility staff and Ali Daniel and Brian Wilson from Subaru of America.

“I’ve been waiting for the right Subaru to come along,” said Garner, “and found the perfect one on Adventure Subaru’s website, the 50th Anniversary Edition Crosstrek. It has all the features I was looking for, and the color and size are the perfect fit.”

Dr. Garner, who is also the proud owner of a 2005 Baja, has specialized as a radiation oncologist in Northwest Arkansasfor over 30 years. Garner, his wife, Denise, and their family are active in their local community.  Dr. Garner supports Circle of Life Hospice and fills in as a staff physician.  Denise has served on the board of Feed Communities, one of Adventure Subaru’s Share the Love local charity recipients.
