Subaru didn't cut their best selling product in half to push a less profitable vehicle.

There you go again saying "in half". I didn't say that. The numbers don't show that. Outback and Legacy are built in the states....... I have no clue if Leg/Out production in Japan was affected though. They said nothing of US production.

What is YOUR source to claim I'm wrong in hearing them say they were cutting Forester production for Crosstrek 2.5? There is no "conclusion from correlation". Its a conclusion from HEARING THEM SAY IT. And after that, what happened? Forester inventory starts dropping. Interesting coinkidink, eh? I cannot quote any specific thing; but, I ask again.....WHEN have I provided any wrong info in the past?
