They have stopped some of the bleeding at MINI but they are taking on water as fast as troubled Volkswagen as an overall car maker.

This might bolster the idea that every luxury car maker will have to make some serious adjustments to current market forces.

The dated styling and monotonous look is hurting them, and their crossover line is a bit dated, which hurts when crossovers are hot.  The 5-series is just getting clobbered and it was once good for 4,000 cars a month easy, I know it is near the end of the model cycle, but the new 5 looks the same as the current 5, I don't see how they change course there.  By upsizing all their cars, they got big cars that aren't performance cars anymore, and luxury was never their strong suit.

      Subaru of America, Inc. Reports Record November Sales
      Record November - monthly sales increase 0.8 percent over November 2016 72 consecutive months of yearly month-over-month growth Best November ever for Crosstrek, Forester and Impreza 45 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Outbacks sold 52 consecutive months of more than 10,000 Foresters sold December 1, 2017 , Cherry Hill, N.J. - Subaru of America, Inc. today reported 51,721 vehicle sales for November 2017, a 0.8 percent increase over November 2016. The automaker also reported year-to-date sales of 584,614 vehicles, a 5.9 percent gain over the same period in 2016.
      November marked the 45th consecutive month of 40,000+ vehicle sales and the 72nd consecutive month of yearly month-over-month growth for the company. Crosstrek, Forester and Impreza were notably strong as each model achieved its best November ever. BRZ also enjoyed strong gains over November 2016.
      Furthering optimism around the brand, Subaru debuted its all-new, three-row, 2019 Ascent SUV at a press event prior to the Los Angeles Auto Show earlier this week. Ascent production will begin at the Subaru of Indiana, Inc. assembly plant in Lafayette, Indiana in May 2018 and will be sold exclusively in the North American market starting in summer 2018.
      Moving into the final month of the year, the Subaru Share the Love event will run through January 2, 2018. Subaru of America will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the customer's choice of the following charities: The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®), Make-A-Wish®, Meals on Wheels America and National Park Foundation, or a hometown charity selected by participating Subaru retailers.
      "With the continuation of our annual Share the Love event, and December typically being one of the best retail sales months of the year, the Subaru franchise is in a great position to achieve its ninth consecutive all-time sales record in 2017," said Jeff Walters, senior vice president of sales, Subaru of America, Inc.
