We were green before green was cool...we chose the "Planet" name when we opened in 1998, and have lived up to our commitment to minimize our environmental impact. We are the first Subaru showroom in the whole world powered entirely by the sun. Read about our other efforts.
Great men AND women on our team
Most dealerships have a difficult time recruiting women because they wouldn't work in a typical dealership environment, but twelve women strengthen the Planet team including FIVE salesWOMEN, plus accountants, service advisors, even our shop manager!
Meet them all here.
Free Driving Dogs!
Well, not really, but we do have a good sense of humor. See our prior April Fools Day gags.
No polyester at Planet!
It is nearly impossible to become a Purchase Partner at Planet Subaru if you previously worked in the car business. (If the benefits of this approach are not obvious, you haven't been to a typical dealership lately!) We find educated professionals and then teach them our ethical way of selling cars. And they just won't leave! Five of the eleven people who opened Planet Subaru on October 2, 1998 are still on the team. (Now we employ over 50. It was an idea whose time had come, apparently). Meet our special team or learn more about joining us.
Faster inventory turns = lower prices
The unspoken slogan at the typical dealership is: "We cheat the next guy and pass the savings on to you." That's not the way we consistently deliver low prices. We sell over 150 vehicles every month so we can make less on each transaction and make it up in volume.
This map shows just one year of Planet Subaru sales...one flag for every zip code in metro Boston where at least one happy Planet customer owns a Subaru. This represents only one year of sales, only one flag per zip code, and only new cars! That's a lot of cars.
Selection you won't find anywhere else
We typically stock at least FOUR HUNDRED new and pre-loved Subaru vehicles, which ranks our inventory among the largest in the country. You won't waste your time visiting Planet Subaru, because there are so many different cars to suit your needs.
We reinvest in the community
Planet Subaru supports the Standish Humane Society and Special Olympics Massachusetts and many other organizations in the community.
These are Jeff's cats, River and Simon, adopted from Standish. Usually they're climbing the curtains rather than looking cute.
Free Lunar Cars, Free Tires for Life, and a whole lot more
Free with every new car purchased at Planet, you enjoy the Planet-exclusive Passport Program that gives you free Lunar Cars for every service, Free Tires for Life, a 10 year/150,000 mile powertrain warranty, and much more. Read all about it.

The Best Subaru Research Site
We have more exclusive website content than any other Subaru dealer, including dozens of pages comparing Subarus and the competition.
Awards and lots of 'em
From the Press:
We offer an experience unlike the disappointments you've had at the typical dealership. Upfront pricing and no deceptive advertising. No tricks or games. See the Planet Way of doing business with you.
Open Door Policy
Planet's owners and key managers are at the dealership most every day. The same open door policy we have for our team members we have for you. Whether it's words of praise or advice, we appreciate what you have to say. Reach owner Jeff Morrill directly.
Here's Jeff in front of a wise old Coast Redwood.
Free Car Wash
All you have to do is ask when you check in for service and we'll top things off with a free car wash (gently by hand) and vacuum.
Sometimes we wash them twice because the turkeys
from our large property come over and poop on them.
Advanced Service Knowledge
Planet Subaru boasts nine certified technicians, five of them Subaru MASTER Technicians! Visit our Service Department.
One of the largest service departments in New England,
we work on over 10,000 Subarus a year.
Real People = No voicemail
If you call during any of the 71 hours per week that we are open, you will speak with a real live person. No automated attendants, no voice mail. We don't even have a receptionist--our sales, parts, and service experts answer your calls, so we resolve the large majority of our calls without even one transfer. We really love what we do.
Starbucks can't fix your car...
But Planet has free wireless, gourmet coffee, comfy sofa chairs, a cozy fireplace, guest office space, child playroom, and diaper changing stations. Sometimes people stay even after their cars are serviced and washed!
