Regardless of what you spend on a vehicle, it’s an investment in your future on the road. So, why not do everything possible to protect that investment, so it serves you well for many miles ahead? Moreover, why not put your vehicle in expert hands with the team at Ruge’s Subaru?
Ruge’s Subaru is the leading Subaru dealership in Rhinebeck, a reputation we’ve continuously built for nearly a century. Our passion for helping customers maintain their vehicles is integral to our history. Joseph Ruge brought his automotive dreams to life in 1935 when he opened a one-pump Sunoco fueling station and a limited repair shop in Rhinebeck. Three years later, he expanded that dream and moved into a three-bay garage, laying the foundation for his future as one of the community’s most beloved automotive dealers.
The Ruge name quickly became synonymous with excellence, and that’s a tradition we’re proud to continue. Like Joseph set out to do in the mid-1930s by treating everyone like family, we believe our customers deserve an unparalleled experience rooted in transparency, integrity, and respect. These values define every aspect of who we are and guarantee the same excellent service, whether you’re working with our sales team or relying on the expertise of our factory-trained technicians. But why else should you choose Ruge’s Subaru for all your automotive maintenance and repair needs?
One of the many reasons to choose Ruge’s Subaru is because there’s no make, model, or automotive issue that we can’t handle. Our industry-wide expertise means our services are comprehensive and include everything from routine oil and filter changes to fluid flushes, battery checks, multi-point inspections, tune-ups, tire rotations, wheel alignments, brake repairs, and more. These services are available to every customer, whether you drive a best-selling Subaru like the Outback or another make and model from brands like Honda, Chevrolet, Toyota, or GMC.
Joseph Ruge knew the importance of investing in his team so they could readily meet the needs of customers throughout the Rhinebeck community. That lesson defines our efforts to hire only the best technicians to run our service center and reinvest in their ongoing education and training so that they can more readily serve customers like you. Among the Ruge’s Subaru team are certified Subaru technicians that know the ins and outs of the Subaru lineup and are constantly honing their skills to keep up with the newest Subaru models and industry trends.
Our state-of-the-art service center mitigates the inconvenience that often comes when your vehicle is in for routine service or repair. For example, local garages or other service departments don’t keep fully stocked inventories, which means there’s a significant delay between getting parts, making the necessary repairs, and getting back on the road. Fortunately, we don’t believe customers should have to wait any longer than necessary.
Our certified technicians have all the necessary tools and equipment in the service center. Likewise, our in-house parts department has a vast selection of genuine Subaru parts and accessories available to our technicians and customers. This availability gives you access to high-quality parts at affordable prices, whether you’re changing the oil in your Subaru from the comfort of your garage, adding a roof rack, or tackling another car-related DIY project at home.
What does it mean to maintain a vehicle’s integrity? Many service departments rely on aftermarket parts to cut costs and save time. However, this compromises the vehicle's integrity because an aftermarket or generalized part isn’t made for a specific make or model. It’s considered a one-size-fits-most, which can affect your vehicle's performance.
We don’t believe in cutting corners, so we make it easy to maintain your Subaru’s integrity by offering genuine Subaru parts. These parts are made specifically for the Subaru fleet and help keep your Subaru a Subaru. In turn, you reap the benefits of knowing your Subaru is running its best with high-quality parts.
We know that maintaining your vehicle can be expensive, especially if you need an unexpected repair and haven’t had ample time to save. We’re here to minimize these expenses as much as possible by offering a variety of service specials that can reduce the cost of these services or the price of parts. With these specials constantly rotating, there’s always an offer that can keep more of your hard-earned money in your wallet.
Bringing your vehicle in for maintenance can be time-consuming, particularly the appointment-scheduling process. Service centers are often hectic, with constantly ringing phones and a parade of technicians, customer service representatives, and customers coming in and out throughout the day. This hubbub can make it overwhelming or challenging to schedule an appointment over the phone, especially if you’re pressed for time.
Ruge’s Subaru values your time and is here to help make the entire process easier. For example, you don’t have to call the dealership to schedule an appointment. Instead, you can schedule your appointment online from the convenience of your home, office, or wherever you are. Even better is that the tool is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, which means you never have to wait!
We do everything possible to make your experience at Ruge’s Subaru enjoyable, whether you’re buying a new model or bringing your vehicle in for service. Joseph Ruge set the standard for this customer-centric approach, and we’re here to take it one step further. We make the wait enjoyable.
Our service center lobby is designed with you in mind. As you wait for your vehicle, we want you to make the most out of your time. So you’ll find plush seating and free WiFi that makes it easy for you to catch up on work, emails, or your favorite show. We also offer complimentary coffee, snacks, and water. We even have a kids' corner to help little ones pass the time.
Ruge’s Subaru is the fulfillment of a dream that started in 1935 when a young entrepreneur opened a garage and fueling station to serve the Rhinebeck community. That young entrepreneur made a lasting impression on his customers, treating them each as part of the family and establishing his reputation for delivering big brand sophistication and small-town values. Today, Ruge’s Subaru continues that tradition, offering a small-town feel with big-brand appeal.
You’ll experience this incredible tradition firsthand when you put your vehicle in the trusted hands of the technicians that run our state-of-the-art service center. We’re here to help you protect your investment, offering industry-wide expertise that guarantees no job is too big or small. Ruge’s Subaru can handle it all, giving customers like you the confidence of knowing our team always has you covered wherever the road takes you.
If you’re ready to experience this for yourself and join the Ruge’s Subaru legacy, we encourage you to stop by the dealership at 6444 Montgomery Street and meet the team.
