Subaru of America president Tom Doll is predicting that they will sell more than a half million units by 2016, after acknowledging that it is now one of the most rapidly growing makes in the US during the 38th Automotive News Congress in Detroit this week.

In fact, the carmaker’s sales jumped 26% during 2013 to a record 424,683 vehicles, including Legacy sedans, Tribeca crossovers, Outbacks, and Impreza compacts (both 4 & 5 door versions), not to mention its new XV Crosstrek Hybrid.

"We have sold so many cars we do not have the service structure at our retailers to handle all the vehicles coming back. As a result our challenge over the next couple years is to make sure we have the necessary service capacity -- the lifts, service bays, technicians, better waiting rooms and loaner cars so that when customers so come in for service we have everything in place back to handle them," he stated.
