Scott Putnam

Welcome to my way of life! My name is Scott Putnam, and I am a Fleet Sales Manager at Luther Bloomington Subaru in Bloomington, Minnesota. With 36 years of Subaru knowledge and experience, I offer a seamless car buying experience, and I hope to make it as simple and easy as possible.

My passion for Subaru is deeply ingrained in me, and I am thrilled to share it with you through this website. Here, you will find a wealth of information about Subaru, from its history to its latest models. I hope you find this site informative and valuable.

For me, Subaru is more than just a car. It’s a way of life. I live, eat, and breathe Subaru, and my passion has led to a range of experiences, including travels to both factories in the US and Japan. I’ve also had the privilege of competing in X Games as a co-driver in Rally Racing. Around here, Rally and Subaru go hand in hand, and I currently sponsor the Ojibwe Forests Rally and have sponsored many rally teams and events throughout the years.

I know that the experience of purchasing a car should be fun, and I strive to make it a memorable one. In the past, I used to get several new vehicles a year when we had demos, and I can still recall the thrill of climbing into a new car and driving off. That feeling has stayed with me, and I want to make sure my customers have a similar experience. So, if you’re looking to buy a Subaru, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
