Is the car manufactured in Japan and shipped to Uk? I have been told by dealer and this adds to the delivery time.
Placed an order end of July and told delivery will be Jan 19.
I am not convinced that it’s made in Japan and shipped over .
That's impressive. Any chance , a visit can be arranged for us lesser mortalsThey are made in Maebashi, Gunma Prefecture in Japan as Will says. I know, I've visited the factory. All the options though such as heated seats, alarms and other options are fitted at Portbury Docks in the UK. That is a very long wait for a car. I only had to wait two weeks for mine as they had stock in the colour I wanted.
Anyone can have a tour, though the factory you actually see is the Forester as they have an overhead walkway in the factory where you can see the car start from sheet metal all the way to the finished product. It's pretty impressive. They also have a little museum with a variety of Subaru's including Richard Burns WRC Impreza that ironically was made by Prodrive of course. The only issue is, you need a Japanese speaking friend to phone them up and book it for you. There was no English translator when we were there so we understood nothing.That's impressive.
