Ah, India... When/what years were GM and Soob together?

Were mechanical changes made, to make them more GMish?

Major shareholders

 

Nissan had acquired a 20% stake in 1968 during a period of government-ordered merging of the Japanese auto industry in order to improve competitiveness under the administration of Prime Minister Eisaku Sato. Nissan would utilize FHI's bus manufacturing capability and expertise for their Nissan Diesel line of buses. In turn, many Subaru vehicles, even today, use parts from the Nissan manufacturing keiretsu. The Subaru automatic transmission, known as the 4EAT, is also used in the first generation Nissan Pathfinder. Speculation has suggested that it was Subaru that introduced Renault to Nissan, when Renault asked for assistance in all-wheel drive (AWD) technology, and when FHI told Renault to discuss their plans with Nissan, the discussions may have been a contributing factor to the currently successful Renault-Nissan alliance. Upon Nissan's acquisition by Renault, its 20% stake was sold to General Motors.

On October 5, 2005 Toyota Motor Corporation purchased 8.7% of FHI shares from General Motors who had owned 20.1% of FHI[5] since 1999. GM later divested its remaining 11.4% stake, selling its shares on the open market to sever all ties with FHI. FHI previously stated that there might have been 27 million shares (3.4%) acquired before the start of trading by an unknown party on October 6, 2005, and speculation suggested that a bank or perhaps another automaker was involved. After the purchase, Toyota announced a contract with Subaru on March 13, 2006 to use the underutilized Subaru manufacturing facility in Lafayette, Indiana, and Toyota announced plans to hire up to 1,000 workers and set aside an assembly line for the Camry model, beginning in the second quarter of 2007.

During the brief General Motors period, a "badge engineered" Impreza was sold in the United States as the Saab 9-2X. An SUV (Subaru Tribeca / SAAB 9-6X) was also planned[6][7] but the SAAB version did not proceed.[8] ******

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've heard rumors that some soobs got GM alternators. maybe someone will know more about that. I don't think there was much design input if any actually.

Pretty sweet commercial for the new Subaru XV. If the XV comes to the USA, it will definitely take the place of my dying Outback once I kill the damn engine. It's got about 8.6 inches of ground clearance, is based off of the Impreza, and promises exactly what I've been looking for from a Subaru:

exceptional off-road capability with sporty driving characteristics. Sure, it won't be powerful, but all that matters is that I KNOW it will be fun to drive with a manual transmission :)

It is of course a Toyota with the 1.3 4 cyl and the 1.4 cyl diesel. But in order to boost sales it is 500 euros cheaper compared to the toyota version.
