Default "Team Built in Indiana"

What goes on at this plant? What else do they build there besides Legacys/Outbacks?

The Baja has the same "Team Built in Indiana" sticker in the window as my 93 Isuzu 4x4 pick-up? The Isuzu is basically a Chevy. A chevy engine(3.1L), CHevy Delfi sensors, chevy computer and scanner hook-up and same codes. Front suspension looks just like an S-10. But the frame is rusting out like a Toyota. Are Rodeos built there? Or all Isuzus? Why doesn't Isuzu import? How can I find out more about this Fuji-Isuzu-Subaru-GM relationship?

Isuzus are no longer being built there. The new 7-passenger crossover will be built there next year.

Where are the Isuzus coming from now? Ya suppose they'd give me a little shop tour if I happen to show up at the Indiana plant? Maybe have some of the guys and gals autograph my Baja.

I posted this link in another thread. It describes how Isuzu's poor sales have caused them to sell of their stake in Fuji Heavy Industries Indiana plant. The plant was renamed to Subaru of Indiana Automotive Inc. You can find their web site at http://www.subaru-sia.com. They build ALL the Baja's there. They also build the Outbacks and Legacy's. I think they also build the engines for the Impressas. It also looks like in 2006 they will also build SAAB. At one time they produced all models of the Isuzu Rodeo, Rodeo Sport and Axiom, the Honda Passport.

Impressa eh? LOL. Anyways why would they build the whole car in japan and bring it over here without an engine, then install the engine in indiana??

No, they come across the ocean with engines already in there.

From The Aluminum Association, Inc.

Quote:
As more American-made components are approved for use in the Subaru engines, the opportunities for domestic aluminum and ferrous scrap dealers, smelters, foundries, steel bar and rod producers and stampers will increase.

Subaru also will buy its fabricated aluminum radiators, engine wiring harnesses, air conditioning condensers and compressors from domestic suppliers, company sources said.

Of the 11 transplant automakers in the United States, Canada and Mexico, only four--Honda Motor Co., Nissan Motor Co., Toyota Motor Corp. and Volkswagen AG--are producing engines here to go into their North American vehicles. Subaru will be the fifth.

Subaru currently assembles four-cylinder engines at SIA, but has plans to also build six-cylinder units. Their aluminum parts will include the cylinder blocks, heads, oil pans, water pumps, various covers and pistons, company sources said. The components made from steel bar, rod and tube will include crankshafts, camshafts, connecting rods, gears, valve train and bearing parts, while exhaust manifolds will head the list of iron parts in the engines.
Well, maybe not all their four-cylinder engines.
