About Your Carter Seattle Subaru Dealer

The Carter family has built one of the Puget Sound's premier Subaru dealerships based on two words: "Hassle Free." We are genuinely committed to a softer, more intelligent sales approach. Our knowledgeable staff truly listens to what you are looking for and offers honest, straightforward answers.

Carter Subaru is the Number One Subaru retailer in the Seattle area with two locations in Shoreline and now in Ballard. We are a hands-on business, family owned & run. We truly want your experience with us to be enjoyable and HASSLE-FREE.

When Carter Motors opened in September of 1960, our founder Wade Carter Jr. was sure of just one thing: Your business would keep us in business. As a family owned business that is something we have never forgotten.

People who work here are like family, most have been here a very long time. We love cars and we love what we do. As our customer, you get to know us and we get to know you and your car. That's why the majority of our business is with repeat customers and their referrals. We value our customers, and once you're a Carter customer, we want you to stay a Carter customer.
