6/1 May sales total 20,036 which is down 15.3% from 23,667 May 2010.

The effect of the March earthquake and related parts shortages is apparent in the lower numbers for Japan-built Impreza and Forester models. There have been very few Imprezas available all month, almost no WRXs and STIs, and the supply of Foresters was sharply lower by month end. Outback sales are up, Legacy is steady, and Tribeca sales are minimal but thats pretty much what they have been for the past few years.
