201 6 ANNUAL REP ORT


Greetings from

Mark Miller Subaru Neighbors, 2016 was a great year for Mark Miller Subaru and the communities we serve! This past year Mark Miller Subaru collaborated with dozens of non-profit organizations by participating in countless fundraising and outreach activities helping organizations raise the funds they need to grow their impact. During our annual Share the Love campaign, for example, we partnered with Subaru of America to donate nearly $60,000 to the Fourth Street Clinic and The Children’s Center. This contribution was so significant that Subaru of America bestowed Mark Miller Subaru with a “Share The Love Top Contributor of the Year Award” – the only Subaru dealership in Utah to be recognized! But why stop there?! This past spring, during Mark Miller Subaru’s exclusive Do Good Feel Good event, we partnered with Utah’s Hogle Zoo, Red Butte Garden, South Salt Lake Police Athletics and Activities League (PAL), and Recycle Utah to raise over $40,000 to support their respective efforts! In addition to our philanthropic support of local charities, we continue our commitment to preserving our environment as Utah’s only eco-friendly Subaru dealership. Our endeavors got an extra boost this past spring as we ‘went solar’ at our South Towne location, making both Mark Miller Subaru dealerships solar-powered buildings. We are proud to be the only Subaru dealerships in Utah that are “solar powered and ecofriendly!”. To top it off, we continue to plant a tree for every car we sell. This 1-for-1 initiative has led us to plant 14,000 new trees along the Wasatch front. We continue to serve you - our loyal customers - and endeavor to establish new customer relationships by offering people the best possible automotive experience. At Mark Miller Subaru, we believe our customers should love walking through our doors. We sustain that belief with our exclusive Promise Price Program, which is our commitment to bringing true market, competitive and transparent pricing on all of our vehicles - without the

hassle of negotiation. And I’m excited to announce that 2017 will usher in an even greater car buying experience for our community! We call this new car-buy experience Promise Price 2.0. Gone are the days where people spent hours inside a dealership buying cars. Starting in 2017, Mark Miller Subaru invites customers to purchase their new car completely online – we’ll deliver it to you! Not only can buying a Subaru be fun, it can be as easy as buying a new iPhone! It’s Mark Miller Subaru’s community focused, non-traditional, and no-pressure approach to business that has earned our dealership awards both locally and nationally. Among those awards were the Customer Satisfaction Award from DealerRater.com., the South Salt Lake Chamber Business of the Year, and – our most prized award – the 2016 Most Ethical Business Award presented to Mark Miller Subaru by Governor Gary Herbert on behalf of the Daniels Fund, the University of Utah, and the Community Foundation of Utah! We are so honored to be a part of this community and strive to be a good neighbor through our community service and customer satisfaction efforts. On behalf of my family, both at home and inside of the dealership, may your following year be as delightful, memorable, and successful as it has been in years past. Yours in sharing love,

Jeff Miller General Manager Mark Miller Subaru

September Love Promise Award Highlight The #LeaveYourMARK Campaign There are few experiences in life that bring people of all ages, sex and gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, races, color, and abilities. Mark Miller Subaru is proud to have created an experience this past summer which brought more than 100,000 people of all diverse backgrounds together through our #leaveyourMARK initiative. Over the past three months, Mark Miller Subaru “took to the streets” & participated in roughly 25 days of local events where we proudly invited people - ALL people - to #leavetheirMARK on a specially wrapped 2016 Subaru Outback. Our eagar participants left notes of love, encouragement, and oftentimes left silly cartoons as a way to express their unique personalities & passions. From messages proclaiming “Love Mother Earth” to a fun-loving dinosaur roaming a forrest, these notes and drawings were daily affirmations that good exists in our world. Most importantly, though, ALL people had a chance to #leavetheirMARK on this special Subaru which provided them an empowering sense of connectivity to one-another. It was moving beyond explanation watching a wheel-chair-bound blind man color next to an aging woman who, herself, stood next to a five-year-old black child. This is proof that, while people may be different, diversity is beautiful.. as beautiful as the work of art shown in our video. Diversity is love, and ‘Love is what makes a Subaru, a Subaru.’

The Miller family have long put people and pets before profits, and it’s this idea which has set us apart from others. This is what makes our company great. The adoption of our newest employee, our grey labradoodle, speaks volumes to the culture established by the Miller family. We do things not because it’s necessarily good for business, but because it’s the right thing to do. I’m excited for the world to meet our labradoodle. I promise that you will fall in love.” MIKE AGUILAR, MARKETING DIRECTOR

09 | 2016 ANNUAL RE PO R T

For the first time in the 40-year history of the Utah Arts Festival (UAF), the doors of the Festival were open to all people – free of charge – on the first night of the event! This was only possible because Mark Miller Subaru (MMS) joined a handful of other institutions (including the State of Utah) in underwriting costs associated with Festival admission. While this may seem like a relatively small act of kindness, this was one of the most important element’s of this year’s event. Utah is home to a large minority population (including larger than normal Hispanic and refugee communities) who traditionally cannot afford events like the Arts Festival. MMS decided to support the Festival in making it accessible to all people regardless of their ability to pay. In addition to underwriting admission, MMS hosted a unique “Community Art Project” during the Festival which more than 25,000 people participated in! As the exclusive automotive partner of the Festival, the Outback was named the “Official Vehicle” of the Festival and was wrapped


Love. It’s a pledge that the Mark Miller Subaru takes very seriously & showing their love by supporting the community is at the top of the list. This spring, that love was in full force at the Do Good Feel Good event. Now in its 8th year, the event was a chance to help local charities by donating $75 every time a car was sold in April. Four charities were chosen including, Utah’s Hogle Zoo, Red Butte Garden, South Salt Lake PAL & Recycle Utah. It was a resounding success with a total of more than $40,000 being donated & culminated with a Community Day on May 7. It was a true celebration with a band, food trucks, a bounce house, radio stations broadcasting live & charity booths. Former Utah Jazz player Thurl Bailey was on hand to present checks to the charities & share his thoughts on the importance of giving back. Also on the agenda was the “flipping of the switch” by Senator Jim Dabakis to mark the dealership going solar & endeavors as Utah’s only eco-friendly dealership. The day ended with a Legacy Premium giveaway. Do Good Feel Good has raised over $380,000 for local charities since it began. “This event is really exactly what it says,” said Jeff Miller, Mark Miller Subaru GM. “We are committed to being an active part of our community & including our customers in that. It really does feel good to be able to give back to charities that do so much in our own backyard.”

Mark Miller Subaru in Salt Lake City truly leads the way for LGBTQ+ Pride in Utah. In fact, Mark Miller Subaru was the proud presenting sponsor of this year’s Pride Parade! As the presenting sponsor of both the parade and the festival-opening Sapphire Spectacular Gala, the dealerships support of the LGBTQ community was in full effect. Employees and friends joined to carry banners, pass out wristbands and cupcakes and drive a colorful line-up of Subaru’s including an Outback wrapped in Pride colors, a Forester, a Crosstrek hybrid and a sleek black WRX tricked out with a four-thousand-dollar sound system that played tunes along the parade route. Mark Miller Subaru was proud to be such a big part of this year’s pride festival, and in light of recent events nationally in the gay community, strong support and love for that population locally and beyond becomes more and more important. When Mark Miller Subaru in Salt Lake City, Utah says that they love their customers, those aren’t just words, they truly put that love into action. This past spring, a Salt Lake woman’s parked van was hit in her parent’s driveway by an alleged burglar who stole a truck and then crashed it during the ensuing police chase. After contacting her insurance company, the truck’s insurance, and even her parent’s insurance company, no one would accept her claim and she was left carless by no fault of her own. Mark Miller Subaru’s GM, Jeff Miller heard the story and decided to step in and help. Within days, he had pulled a van off of his used lot and went to surprise the woman with a new set of wheels. Amidst tears of joy gratitude, the woman learned first-hand what Mark Miller Subaru’s commitment to community is all about.

as a giant “Coloring Book” to engage the entire community. This Outback became the most popular, community centered activity of the Festival! It was so popular that members of the MMS team had to continually clean portions of the car to allow for more individuals to participate! The most rewarding part of this community art project, however, was the widerange of individuals who participated in creating this visually stunning master-piece!

Thanks to the 2015 Share the Love event, Mark Miller Subaru supported The Children’s Center in Salt Lake City, Utah in the renovation of our Imagination Playground.

Not only did Mark Miller Subaru help us raise over $34,000 for the playground, the staff at the dealership also volunteered time and assisted us in removing the existing equipment and installing the new equipment. The dollars raised and the manual help were instrumental in making this project possible. Perhaps viewed as “just a playground” it is important to realize that our new Imagination Playground is so much more than that. For many of our children (ages 0-6) served at The Children’s Center, some form of trauma has been a central part of their very young lives. As a result, these young children have lost the ability to play and use their imagination in a typical and important way. The creation of our Imagination Playground has allowed our children to once again experience play and regain parts of their childhood that were perhaps lost. We are so grateful to Mark Miller Subaru and Subaru of America for their ongoing support of local communities and national organizations who play a critical role in reaching those who need it most.

The Pre-Collision Braking feature can apply full braking force in emergency situations. Another way Subaru designs vehicles with your safety in mind.

A sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, available transmission paddle shifters, and Active Torque Vectoring all combine to deliver an engaging drive.

The Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) gets more performance out of less fuel. Combined with the capability of all-wheel drive, it’s a win-win situation for the road ahead.

In addition to warning when you are inadvertently swaying within in your lane, EyeSight can also provide gentle steering input to help keep the vehicle’s path centered.

Two cameras are mounted by the rearview mirror to monitor traffic and react to conditions even before you do. One benefit is the optimization of your cruise control, sensing the pace of the vehicles ahead of you and helping to adjust the speed accordingly.

2017 Subaru Legacy Luxury

Safety

Versatility

The Legacy is Subaru’s luxury sedan. Hands down the most comfortable sedan Subaru has because of the abundance of passenger space and furnishing. The technology and features like starlink with Pandora satellite gps and Bluetooth connectivity are a must. All this, without sacrificing the cargo space to carry your golf clubs and groceries.

Safety has not and will not become a secondary priority. A benefit to the boxer engine is the horizontal design. When in a front end collision, the engine can drop to the ground and pass under the passengers instead of into them causing great damage.

The Legacy is capable of anything that you would need your sedan to do and more. Between the engine and the CVT transmission, you are getting the power and traction to tackle any challenge. Even though it can be rugged, you’re not giving up comfort. Eyesight makes this a very good car to drive.


2017 Subaru Crosstrek The Crosstrek is a happy cross between the outback and the impreza. It stays small, true to the crossover recipe, while still giving you plenty of carrying space for your activities. As an added bonus, it has incredible value at the pump. At 34 MPG, it was made to impress. What’s even more impressive is the effect it has on the environment. PZEV isn’t just a catchy phrase that no one gets the meaning of. It means that it exceeds California’s stringent emissions standards and has fewer emissions than even some hybrid models.

All-Wheel Drive Don’t think that because the Crosstrek is so friendly to nature or efficient at the pump, it can’t take you anywhere a Subaru would want to go. With almost 9 inches of ground clearance and the Subaru famous all-wheel drive, it’s hard to find a place it can’t take you to.

Comfortable and Innovative Interior Innovative, high-contrast materials bring style you can feel to the Crosstrek interior. Available features like leatherappointed seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel add a little luxury to go with that adventurous spirit.

Why? Because we want people to enjoy their car buying experience! How? Through Mark Miller Subaru’s exclusive Promise Price Program! Mark Miller Subaru brings you true market, competitive pricing on all of our vehicles without the needless hassle of negotiation. And more than that, our sales staff doesn’t work on commission! SO you can feel confident they’re committed to helping you drive away in the right vehicle for YOU, with a fun, exciting, and stress free experience. There aren’t many dealerships who offer one-price programs like “Promise Price” – and we’re proud to be revolutionizing the car industry!

3. Because you love your community.

1. Because we’re a local, family run business.

And so does Mark Miller Subaru! We like to do our part to make the world a better place – that’s our ‘Love Promise’ to you and our community. In the past 20 years we’ve donated over $1M to charitable causes, and our employees have donated their time—over 28,000 volunteer hours—to service projects along the Wasatch Front. Some of non-profits we support include the Ronald McDonald House, the Humane Society, Hawkwatch International, the Children’s Center, the Columbus Center, Utah Pride, Granite Education Foundation, Recycle Utah, Tree Utah, and so many more! We’re always looking for new charities to support. Do you know one that we should partner with? Send them our way!

Mark, his son Jeff, and their family own and operate Mark Miller Subaru in Utah! And for the past 45 years, Mark, Jeff, their family, and the 200+ individuals who work for Mark Miller Subaru have been proud to serve YOU – our friends who live in, love, and take pride in our beautiful state! Rest assured that Mark and Jeff wouldn’t put their last name on the building if they didn’t take pride in everything they do… This is evident in items 2-12 below! And as always, they’d love to meet you! Next time you’re in our neck of the woods, please stop by and say hello! You can usually spot Mark or Jeff chatting with people near our on-site café! They’ll even buy you a soda for taking the time to say hi!
