THE world’s largest man­u­fac­turer of 4x4 cars, Subaru, has teamed up with the Ul­ster Farm­ers’ Union to of­fer their full range of ve­hi­cles on the UFU Affin­ity pro­gramme.

The deal is exclusive to North­ern Ire­land and is a first for the Ja­panese man­u­fac­turer.

UFU mem­bers will be able to ne­go­ti­ate di­rect with their lo­cal Subaru dealer, then get a fur­ther 3% UFU mem­ber dis­count off their cho­sen new ve­hi­cle.

Launching the scheme, UFU deputy pres­i­dent Ivor Fer­gu­son said “We’re de­lighted to bring this exclusive new ben­e­fit to our mem­bers. The Subaru car range is renowned for its go-any­where abil­ity, in all sea­sons, on or of­froad, backed by out­stand­ing re­li­a­bil­ity and an ex­cel­lent war­ranty.

“Our mem­bers un­der­stand the im­por­tance of de­liv­er­ing qual­ity goods and ser­vices to their cus­tomers, there is no doubt Subaru cars in turn com­mand ex­tra­or­di­nary cus­tomer loy­alty as their range of All Wheel Drive cars has proven to be thor­oughly ca­pa­ble and trust­wor­thy in all con­di­tions.

“This deal is an ex­cel­lent fit for our mem­bers, and Subaru, and we trust it will be highly suc­cess­ful for all.”

Subaru NI MD Neville Matthews added: “Nine out of ten Subarus are still in ser­vice on and off road 10 years af­ter be­ing built, and an ex­tra­or­di­nary num­ber re­main in the ser­vice of the orig­i­nal pur­chasers.

“Cus­tomer loy­alty and sat­is­fac­tion is the back­bone of our busi­ness in North­ern Ire­land, and we have seen Subaru be­come the ob­vi­ous ve­hi­cle choice for the farmer, his wife and fam­ily, vets and sup­pli­ers.

“The UFU mem­ber­ship con­tains a sub­stan­tial num­ber of our ex­ist­ing own­ers and it’s only nat­u­ral that we would want to keep build­ing stronger bonds with our cus­tomers.

“The com­plete model range — Forester, XV Cross­over, Out­back, all new Levorg, Im­preza, even the WRX STI and BRZ sport­ster — are be­ing launched on the pro­gramme. We didn’t want mem­bers feel­ing we were ex­clud­ing them from a par­tic­u­lar model — there re­ally is no rea­son not to make the full line-up avail­able.

“Demon­stra­tors are avail­able at any of our three NI deal­ers — Western Cars En­niskillen, East­wood Mo­tors Lis­burn and Gorm­ley Mo­tors Dun­gan­non. Mem­bers, and cus­tomers old and new will be made most wel­come.

“We of­fer petrol and diesel Boxer en­gines de­liv­er­ing power through our proven All Wheel Drive sys­tem. To­gether they en­sure a low cen­tre of grav­ity, taut han­dling and out­stand­ing driver con­fi­dence all year round. Driv­ers can choose from our six speed man­ual trans­mis­sions or our Lin- eartronic gear­boxes, both re­turn ex­cel­lent real world econ­omy.”
