Why are 2013 Imprezas delayed delivery until December?
At the time of the order she was told 6-8 weeks to get the car. Also that two weeks before it arrives dealer will get notification the unit has shipped. It has been six weeks and now dealer is saying November possibly. No one can tell us why it is taking so long. Daughter called Subaru of America yesterday and now they are saying it could take till December but zero guarantees. Also no explaination of why it is taking so long. Also their website doesn't warn consumers about this either.
Does anyone know why the delays? How can we believe anything they tell us since the delivery date is always a moving target and not even reasonably late.
Is it because exchange rate is not good and cars sitting on the dock since that is an issue with Japanese cars at times? Also are the riots in China in Japanese plants stalling getting parts for the cars? Is Japanese economy and banks not able to lend out enough money causing production shortages since Subaru is the smallest of the car manufacturers there and not getting enough funding? I see they want to build a plant in the U.S. but it will cost 1 billion dollars and who is going to fund it? Is it the lack of power since nuclear power plant imploded and Subaru gets a smaller slice of power allocated? Are the cars glowing in the dark now? I see the 2011 and 2012 had recalls with brakes and that was the explaination of why they also held up those units too. Do they hold them up to avoid U.S. recall rules? What other cars are comparable to the Impreza hatchback limited version that we can actually buy and drive now? Are there ANY 2013 Imprezas here now?
