6/23/21 - Subaru of America is doing all we can to help make adequate inventory available under these very difficult circumstances in an effort to limit disruptions to your ability to provide service to Subaru customers. To date, SOA have absorbed these cost increases with the hope things would return to previous levels by now. Unfortunately, the hardships are continuing, and the massive cost increases are growing. At this point, SOA must temporarily pass through a portion of those costs. Therefore, all orders placed on or after July 1, 2021 will include an additional $75 charge on the vehicle invoice under the caption Supply Chain Hardship. We believe placing the charge on the vehicle invoice is the best way to reflect the anticipated temporary nature of the issue rather than increasing parts and accessories pricing. It would be our intention to remove this charge once the supply chain hardship is alleviated, which we expect to be by March 31, 2022.
