February may be the shortest month of the year, but at i want to be a writer essay, we have a long list of items to celebrate from that one month. For starters, there’s the fact that Subaru of America, Inc., was able to report record sales for the month, even surpassing last year’s extended month thanks to Leap Day!

In fact, the automaker celebrated an 11-percent increase over February 2012, selling 28,163 units last month. That may make February 2013 our best February of all, but we have our eyes, and hearts, set on something even bigger. We’d like to maintain this thrilling trend and see Subaru report record sales for the year, and we hope you’ll join us in monitoring the brand’s progress by checking back in with this blog.

We’re already off to a great start thanks to new Subaru drivers from Cape Coral, who helped the brand achieve year-to-date sales of 55,826 units. That’s a 16-percent increase over the same period in 2012.

We’re already proud of the brand’s progress in 2012, when the automaker sealed off four consecutive years of sales growth and surpassed 300,000 annual sales for the first time in its history. But as we said, when it comes to the Subaru brand, we always have our eyes set on the next big goal and the future ahead of us.

March marks the introduction of the all-new 2014 Subaru Forester, and with that huge accomplishment on the horizon, we have high hopes and big plans for the rest of the year, starting right now. Join us as we look ahead to an exciting new year and a bright future!
