First, let me say hello, and thanks in advance for answering this and what is sure to be many more questions in the future. I'm looking in to trading in my 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track for a 2011 WRX. I've been making the rounds to get quotes from a few dealers and got a questionable response from one of them. When I told them that I would be ordering the configuration I want, I was told:
"Subaru has moved into the 2012 model year production schedule. We can't place a 2011 vehicle to build anymore. Pricing has not been released for the 2012 WRX. Sold orders for the WRX will be scheduled in November. That is when we can place a 2012 WRX vehicle for you. "
I'm trying to figure out if this is just a dealer trying to do a money-grab to either sell the stock they have or get me buying a newer (and probably higher priced) model. Or is it true that Subaru is no longer taking orders from dealers? I was told just 2 days ago by another dealer that ordering one would not be an issue, but this may also just be a way to pull the old bait and switch; get me in there with the promise of one thing, and then tell me "oh, we can't get the 11's any more, but here's the order form for a 12 for slightly more".
Any insight appreciated
