Where are Legacy's and Imprezas built? If in the US when was the last year for Japanese built for both models? I am in Canada and am wondering if we get our Subies from the same place as those in the US.

Depends on what time period you're looking at. With the older models, like the 80's models, those were all made in Japan. My XT was made in Japan.

The Legacies, when they first came out, were mixed. The plant in Indiana was built around this time, so there are some first-gen Legacies that were made in both. Legacy777's 90 Legacy was made in Japan, my 91 Legacy was made in the US.

You can tell this from the VIN, by the way. If your VIN starts with a J, then it's a Japanese made car. If it's a 4S, then it's Indiana.

Today, any Legacy-based model (Legacy, big Outbacks, Baja) are made in Indiana. Anything Impreza-based (Impreza, WRX, STi, Forester, OBS) are all made in Japan.
