Subaru Shifting Production to U.S. Plant: The auto maker's parent, Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., will move all Legacy assembly out of Japan when its Indiana plant begins turning out 1995 models next spring, Richard Marshall of Subaru of America said. He blamed the costly yen for the change, but he would not estimate how many jobs the move might generate in Indiana.
