Subaru's sales gains in 2010 follow successive sales growth in 2008 and 2009 and were driven by increases across the board with strong sales for Outback, Forester, and Legacy Sedan and Impreza. Sales for the brand have grown by close to 50% in just over three years and company officials expect full-year sales for 2010 to exceed 250,000 units.

"We have a formula that works," said Timothy M. Colbeck, senior vice president of sales, Subaru of America, Inc. "Our vehicles are right-sized, come with all-wheel drive standard, and are known for safety, reliability, fuel economy and spirited driving. Add into that mix excellent value for money and it's clear why we are seeing sustained demand for our brand."

"Our entire dealer network deserves praise for their sterling efforts in achieving this record," said Thomas J. Doll, executive vice president and COO, Subaru of America, Inc. "The passion of our dealers and our own people in getting the message out about Subaru, means that consumers are beginning to fully understand the appeal of our products and we expect our sales success to continue as a result of these efforts," Doll added.

the forester i think is still not worth getting pumped over.

what is nice about the new legacy and outback is that they are more mainstream. they don't seem as much like the old subies as much as they feel like nice larger functional, American market cars.
