Our commitment to doing something that off sets the 150+ cars that we sell monthly is our Carbon Neutral Project.
For each car test-driven at Carter Subaru, one tree will be planted in the Mountains to Sound Greenway, funded by Carter Motors. For each car purchased, three additional trees will be planted. So, if you test drive a car and buy it there will be four trees planted in the Greenway!
