Subaru Prices May Drop as Supply Increases
This has certainly been the case, especially with the Subaru Outback wagon and Legacy sedan which have seen sales double this year.
Subaru has now promised to increase supply by 40% in order to meet the demand. They had already been increasing the pace of production but they will now take it into overdrive with the goal of producing 140,000 vehicles a year at their Indiana manufacturing plant.
This is good news for prospective Subaru shoppers. The only negative is that you will need to wait a few months for supply to catch up with demand. When that happens, prices should become more flexible and you'll have more options to choose from.
