Default Where's the Baja made?

Obviously they are making this car in the U.S. because nobody in Japan would dare drive one, so I'm curious, where is it's final assembly point?

Out of curiosity too, does it happen to be built in a GM plant? It would be plausible since GM bought out 20% of Subaru.

They assemble the outbacks in Indiana, not sure about Baja. Australia has the Baja also.

I have read that subaru's final assembly for all cars that are built on the Legacy frame are assembled in Indina and all cars built on the impreza frame are built in Japan. This was before the baja was out. but going with this logic, that would say that the baja would be assembled in Indina.

And I take it that plant in Indiana is a GM one?

It might be now, but they've been doing the outback thing there before GM got their hands in it, so I would say its a subaru plant and GM might own 20%. I've never been there or seen physical evidence to say either

It is a 100% subsidiary of Fuji Heavy Industry. So, yes, GM owns 20% stake in FHI, but the plant management is under FHI (structure-wise). How much GM influence, is uncertain. Pearhaps John[CT] can answer that...

Interesting as it is, there's another Japanese car company that builds U.S. production models at it's stakeholders plant in the U.S.

Mitsubishi would be the name...they build the Eclipse, Galant, and a few others in Normal, Illinois which happens to be a Chrysler plant.
