Sign is gone, no new Subarus on the lot.
Is Alleghany Motors no longer a Subaru dealer? If not, why? What happened? Subaru is a great car, lots of them around Covington. I'm afraid now we'll have to drive to Lewisburg or Roanoke to buy one. Another loss for the area.

I went by and spoke with them the other day. It really had nothing to do with Alleghany Motors they are just getting out of smaller markets. They said they would still take care of me, but honestly if Subaru isn't going to support us we shouldn't support them. Alleghany was the 1st ever subaru dealer in Virginia. Kind of sucks, but oh well they aren't as good of a car as they used to be anyway.
yeah right

Subaru people told them what they had to do to keep the franchise they didn'y do it so they can't see anymore. Subaru wanted more space & separated from the other brands. didn't like the small area wanteda showroom.

you are right, they didnt do what Subaru told them so why do people who buy from there think they can believe them on anything else? A-Motors knew this a year ahead but do you think they were going to tell you the customer that when you were looking to purchase a new Subaru...NO! Go ahead, keep believing the BS.

Subaru pulled out of 7 dealerships the same day. Brockman, Alleghany, 1 in Richmond, Fairfax, and 3 in really small areas like Covington. It had nothing to do with Alleghany. I spoke with the Customer service agent at Subaru. They are the smallest Auto Manufacturer in the United States and it is really expensive to do business in small areas. Alleghany took mine to First Team and gave me something to do drive so I really appreciated that.

@she you are way pass half retarded for saying "Jay justice bought Subaru I know cause my dad works for him. That y all them trucks of his r sitting behind the old dresslier parking lot". The reason the trucks sit there is because they sold a few of their mines and no longer need the extra trucks.They bought damm near 100 trucks and didn't need all them. Know your facts before you get on here and say something.

What I don't understand is why would they pull out of Alleghany Motors - because it's a small market and not over in Fairlea? I'd say that's a small market too - and the dealer is ultra small. But maybe they are an outstanding dealer over there. I'm interested in buying a new Subaru - anyone done business with the Fairlea Subaru dealer?

@Curious Fairlea is Grander-fathered in until the ownership changes and they also have no certified mechanic to work on cars up there. When they pulled out of the Highlands they also pulled out of something like 9 other places also.

I bought my Subaru from AM and when I got my last recall went in and found out they lost the Subaru franchise. I was told by AM that after Tommy gave it over to Dizzy, dizzy didn't sign the paperwork in time and lost it. So now I have to travel to Roanoke to get the recall fixed but they can do all the other here that is not warranty related.
