The Hottest And Fastest-Selling New Car In America? This conclusion would be huge stretch if it came from the Subaru marketing department. The fact that it came from an independent news site is mind boggling.

Subaru's ability to manufacture new vehicles has been totally crippled from the supply chain issues triggered by the pandemic. All car manufacturers are incurring issues, but no other car manufacturer has been more hamstrung that Subaru. They have been rendered nearly impotent.

Of course, Subaru's spend the least amount of time on the lot. Its a function of supply, or lack there of, not overwhelming demand.
