Every single one was sold (including the ones in transit). 0 available. I can get on a list or they can order me one which will take 3-6 months. Same story at 3 more local Subaru dealers. Same with Crosstrek (every dealer has 15-30 listed on their site but you are lucky to find a couple that are in transit and still available, and they are usually bare bones manual base model or loaded model).

One dealer showed 50 Mazda CX-5's available on his website. Same thing. Called and there were 5 of the 50 still available but they were not built yet and were all the higher trim models I didn't want.

Don't believe the internet. It tells lies.
Oh, no worries, I have been calling in because I want to test drive.
Don't get me wrong, I don't expect them to stay on lots forever because it's the Bay Area and people go through cars like they go through shirts.
