Default 2013 Subaru STI order

Hi All, I was wondering if anyone's been having trouble ordering a 2013 STI? I've called three dealers and all of them seem to have some hesitations to place an order for me...

Any advice? Any dealer recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

There is a probability that they are not allowed to take new orders on the STIs. I know that last year they stopped taking orders from them pretty early in the year because Subaru went straight to the 2013 models. What dealership have you been contacting?

Looking for new specifically? Why not browse for '11 or '12 models?

Yea, what dealerships are you contacting ? I ordered one from Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City around Christmas, and the order hasn't even been acknowledged by Subaru as yet....

The main thing really is, Subaru is getting ready to launch the 2014, so production orders for the last set of 2013 are very slim right now... the dealership told me to expect up to 4 months to get the car... but I got a call last week saying an order came in similar to mine that apparently the order fell through and he asked me if I wanted such.

It was a bit more expensive but not by a long shot and I went to see it and took it home the same day, and now the order I put through still is I guess pending...

You need to call around and see what is incoming to these dealerships...ask them to do a locate to see what is available... and like what paterick said, whynot see if they are some 2012's around with little miles ?

I've contacted Santa Cruz, Capitol, Carlsen, and Stevens Creek. Capitol finally got back to me a week later to take one of their cars off the lot instead of ordering.

When I called around, they had a very limited 2013 selection. I wanted white and only blue and silver was available. If I'm going to put down this much money for a car, I just figured I want to get it in the exact color/options that I want. That's why I decided on ordering the car.

I ended up ordering one through Carlsen as well. I'll keep you guys posted on my estimated date and arrival date.

(Sorry for the late response, guys. Works been getting pretty crazy)
