In a year that features a lot of insecure hand wringing and "please like us" attitude from manufacturers, Subaru entered the L.A. Auto Show with the strut of a team that's clinched its division with weeks to spare. There was no "up 21 percent from previous third quarter sales in 2010" nonsense. This company is setting sales records, with hard numbers -- and the 2014 Subaru Forester doesn't seem like it's going to break the streak.
"These are good times at Subaru," they said in the press conference. "We will end the year with another sales record." Now they're just running up the score.
