    Looks like some time in March for us SDC dealers, not sure when SOA dealers can order them though, might be a tiny bit earlier.

    An SOA dealer I spoke with today said 3/17, with production beginning 4/1.

    Check out this doc, which confirmed what the dealer said.

    Hi, new member here... Long story short is I've been a fan of the WRX since 2000 just haven't been fortunate to own one yet. I'm currently looking into purchasing/financing the base WRX which is all I really need.

    I am looking into trading in My 2011 VW Jetta SE which is clean besides a ding here and there since it's a daily driver, and the only thing I've put on the vehicle are a sub box and amp and a cat-back exhaust. I was wondering if it would be best to remove what I've put on the Jetta before going up to a dealership and working on the trade-in or if during the negotiating I say that I plan on keeping the sub box and amp since I'm not really interested in going through the trouble of removing the cat-back? Would I get more for the trade-in if I leave the vehicle as is? Also not sure if it has been asked already, but would it be wise for me to wait to purchase a 2014 model once the new 2015's are available for sale... am I more likely to get a better deal?

    Thanks in advance for any feedback and great thread you guys have going on here.

    .
    It's all going to come down to body style, trim and color.

    I've been shopping for over a month and the only semi-constant I've seen is that some dealers are less willing to give a break on the hatches. If you want a sedan and are a little flexible on trim and especially color, I say wait awhile. I don't know why anyone would, at this moment, buy a 2014 sedan unless the price were incredible.

    If you really want a hatch but want to wait to see if deals pop up in the next month or so, the only trim I would take any gamble on still being around in sufficient quantity to give you a color choice would be the base. Yes, there are a number of Premiums and some Limiteds out there, but, if you wait too long with those trims, I think you'd be taking a big risk on getting stuck with a color choice you might not like.

    I've had dealers tell me they aren't getting any more hatches and then I've seen some pop up on their inventory. I've had others tell me all their incoming hatches are spoken for and, according to their website, they're right; no hatches to be seen.

    I will say one more thing about that hatch inventory (at least in Ohio); I don't see too many on the lots. A big percentage are 'in transit'.

    In my case, I was inflexible on hatch and trim and only interested in two colors. I'm not the gambling type and decided to snag one that is still transit to a dealer two hours away. Had nothing ever showed up in a convenient radius, I would've waited for the 2015.

    Clayton, do you have an idea of when would be the latest I could place an order for a new 2014 WRX hatch? I hear the window is closing fast, but I'm not quite ready to buy right now. Maybe in a couple of months (April?).

    I do not want a sedan, so once the '15 model comes out I'm screwed.

    I would also like to know the answer to this question. I'm looking to pickup a 14' STi hatch mid February, late March and was curious how hard it is or might be to come by one.

    I asked the same question in one of his other threads as I'm in the same kind of situation. Heres the low-down:

    "-They told me this:
    "SDC will advise dealers of the actual cutoff date that SDC will accept sold orders for these carlines but at this time we anticipate a Mid February date."
    But I would try to get an order in asap if you want one, as you can see they really have not committed to anything in that statement.-"

    It's looking like the end of the week, there is only one allocation left. I think they underestimated all the hatchback orders that they got when they announced the 15 will only come in sedan.

    So is that the February allocation, or for March?

    Will new orders even be taken, or are all the remaining 2014 cars already built?

    I'm assuming SOA/SDC would make some sort of announcement to the sales teams to stop taking new orders, right?

    Nope, they just cut me off today and unwound some previously placed orders.

    Not so awesome for me juggling all these cars and making all these depressing phone calls today! But on the bright side I managed to find something comparable for everyone on order and it all worked out somewhat with some guys having to switch colors but glad to say I got it done without much drama. I apologize for the inconvenience everyone. Like everyone who has ever ordered a car from Subaru just wish I could get better info in the first place. Their official response was along the lines of " don't worry guys, just offer them 2015s!... Nevermind the whole we don't have prices, info on packages, or hatchbacks thing" lol. Anyway, March I will have 2015 order info so if anyone is curious about price or info on the cars get ahold of me then. Until then, I still have a couple cars left that are not spoken for so if you need a 14 let me know if you are interested in any of these ASAP, here is a copy of my vms with explanations in bold:

    Would like to get your thoughts on the tribeca. My wife is currently driving an '11 outback 2.5, which suits our family of 4 just fine.. But we have an addition arriving in July. With my oldest still needing to be in a booster, there isn't enough room in the back for 2 car seats, and a booster. She loves just about everything about her car. The only regret she has is that she didn't get the 6 cylinder engine.
    She's been thinking about trading in her outback for a tribeca. She doesn't want a minivan, and also doesn't want an obnoxiously large SUV. I don't see a lot of tribecas in the road, and there aren't many new or used in dealer inventories.
