ST. GEORGE — Findlay Subaru St. George has a new home in their state-of-the-art showroom and service center at 1453 S. Sunland Drive in St. George. More than just about the sales, the building – which started construction in September – was designed with energy efficiency in mind and was completed at the beginning of July.

To celebrate, Findlay had a “Grand Opening Celebration” on Friday and Saturday that was kicked off with a ribbon cutting and featured bounce houses, free sandwiches from Chef Hog, Kilo’s Italian Ice, face painting, balloon artists, tickets to Tuacahn shows, Subaru swag and prize giveaways, including concert tickets to Dierks Bentley, Gwen Stefani and Ozzy Osbourne.

The 20,000-square-foot facility was designed with large windows along the front, an awning around the building and an open-floor concept complete with glass-walled offices.

“The natural light makes a real difference, and the large awning around the building helps to mitigate the high temperatures that St. George is known for,” said marketing coordinator Karyn Keanaaina. “All the lights are LED and also auto-dimming and auto-off, so we really stay energy efficient.”

The building also features a large waiting area with a “living wall” vertical garden. The wall puts out, on average, approximately 160 square feet of purified air per minute. The store also features a stone fireplace, a children’s area and even a dog run on the north side of the building for customers’ pets. On the service end of things, the service center is also brand new, with top-of-the-line equipment.

Findlay Subaru came to St. George in 2009 and has since earned the Subaru Stellar Car Award every year it has been open, as well as the 2018 Subaru Love Promise Customer Commitment Award as a part of their partnership with the Southwest Wildlife Foundation for the Share the Love program.

    Just returned from Draper with a new 2018 Toyota. Great deal and absolutely no fuss. Local dealers don’t want to give any deals on Toyota’s. They are like that because they have no competition here in Dixie and consider buyers to be a captive audience. Not the way to do business! Go to Draper to buy and be happy.

      Why would I go to Draper for anything, including buying a car?

    Like Walter1, I also went out of town to buy my last two vehicles for the same reason. The only vehicle bought in STG was at Findlay Subaru. The other two cars were bought in Las Vegas Findley dealerships. Best wishes to Findlay and their new digs.

      I helped my son negotiate a great deal on an Outback at Findlay. It was quick and easy. I, like you, will not buy from the other dealerships across the highway. They refuse to negotiate and believe we are held captive by geography. The internet is changing the world, some dealerships need to get with it.

    Ever notice how the mayor seems to be in every single photo op? You guys remember ‘where’s waldo?’? It’s like a bad joke, really.

    There is no other place I would deal with but Findlay, honest guys, helpful.. great service dept. I bought a hundai in 2011 and will buy a new Subaru soon, they last forever and safest car, low price car insurance. They will go 500,000, and more
    I tried buying a car on the other side, salesmen were rude, they held me back saying they needed me to buy a car they needed the commission check..my friend bought a Toyota truck, when he had it just check d for oil change and first. Heckup, they couldn t find his truck then brought us the wrong truck.. they drive you around and won,plat some show rooms there..
    Trust me findlAy are the only dealers to work with.. MM

      Decent car but, “they last forever and safest car, low price car insurance. They will go 500,000, and more”? . Oh boy they got you sold !! Please show me me a Subaru that’s gone even half that mileage. I know, I worked on ’em for 10 years. Nice new dealership to pay sticker price for though !

        Mike P was there. Mike P knows 😉 . I believe he was there this time, hahahaha. Who in the world really milks 500k out of a car? I’d say very few. So, mike p, is a subaru a decent car or what? I know they have had problems with those flat 4 engines turning into oil guzzlers over the years. So have they got that worked out or what?

          comments, Ha, HA. Actually, Subaru is a decent car, just not all what it’s put up to be. Subaru owners are kinda like what Toyota & Honda owners used to be like. They were sold on them , probably cuz someone like anti-American Consumer Reports recommended them. So they LOVE their cars and would never say anything bad about them no matter how many issues or trouble they’ve had with it. And, That’s o.k. As far as the flat-4?, yeah , that was problemsome , it was really nothing more than a Old V.W / Corvair motor and they blew head gaskets like they were going out of style. Many improvements have been made over the years and their very reliable now, but do tend to burn oil when ya some mileage on ’em. Back in the day, they were a very simple little car and extremely easy to work on. Sorry my response was so winded.

      I’ve never bought a car with findlay so I don’t know how they are overall. I’ve looked at a couple there. I’ve seen on the sticker where they’ve added a “clear bra” I guess for rock chip protection to the paint, and it added like $1600 to the sticker price. Seems frickin’ ridiculous for something that should not cost more than 200. So maybe they’re wonderful, I don’t know, but the extremely overpriced add-on stuff made me wonder. People have said that costco’s auto purchase program is a good way to keep dealers from really putting the screw on you if you’re buying new, so there’s that.
