Default Subaru sales slip from August high, but beat last years numbers

The sale of Subaru vehicles made a small, but surprising, increase last month when compared to September of last year.

A report released today by Subaru of America Inc. shows the company sold 14,593 vehicles last month. That represents a 1 percent increase over the 14,491 units sold in September 2008.

A pair of all-new 2010 models made at the Subaru of Indiana Automotive Inc. plant in Lafayette - Legacy and Outback - posted strong sales gains last month.

• Sales of the Legacy line rose 24 percent, to 2,762 units.

• Sales of the Outback line, which include the Legacy wagon, rose by 63 percent to 4,268 units.

The Tribeca, which also is built at SIA, posted a 52 percent decline in sales, to 358 units.

Among Subaru vehicles made in Japan, sales of the Forester fell by 1 percent, to 4,839 units; while sales of the Impreza line dropped by 42 percent, to 2,366 units.

In August, Subaru had its best month ever. It sold 28,683 vehicles.

Tom Easterday, senior vice president at SIA, isn't surprised that Subaru's September sales results fell short of the August totals, which got a boost from the federal government's "Cash for Clunkers" program.

"You're going to see a little bit of retrenching," Easterday said. "The Legacy and Outback sales ... will be trending ahead."
