Usually, Memorial Day is a great time to buy a new Subaru as they want to move new 2021 Forester, Outback, and Ascent models and make room for 2022 models. But 2021 is different with the microchip shortage shutting down both plants and limiting new vehicle supplies.
A new report from U.S. News says the best Memorial Day deals for 2021 include the Subaru Ascent 3-Row family hauler. Subaru of America is offering no-interest financing on 2021 Ascent models for 63 months. Subaru is also offering no-interest financing on 2021 Forester, Outback, Legacy, and Impreza models.
But the problem for shoppers this weekend is the limited inventory available. Customers may not find the exact color or model they want. Torque News checked the largest volume dealer in Colorado, where Subaru is one of the top-selling brands. They have eleven 2021 Forester, fifteen 2021 Outback, and six 2021 Ascent models in stock for customers to buy this weekend.
Another problem customers are having is finding a used Subaru model. Used car prices are skyrocketing as customers can’t find the new model they want. Consumer Reports says, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, used-car prices have jumped 21 percent since April 2020, and 10 percent of that increase was in April 2021.
