What's up with the "MUST FINANCE WITH DEALER." provision?

What's up with the "PRICE INCLUDES CUSTOMER LOYALTY REBATE." notation?

Both sound kinda fishy.

The $26k KBB price sounds EXTREMELY high.

Suggest online search of used inventory at several Subaru dealers.

Does not seem too out of line for price. I steer clear of dealers that advertise they specialize in poor credit customers. I personally would never buy from a dealer that insists on the buyer using their creditors.

Good Luck is being able to take advantage of an opportunity and have a positive outcome, Bad Luck is someones else's fault.

That's a lot less than I paid for a 2011. I was more up near $24-25k for mine. Had a few thousand less miles and a couple more options than that one though. As long as those fine print items aren't a big deal, and as long as the car is in good shape I think it's a great deal.

With out knowing how much you can afford or want to spend, it's hard to say. I'd peruse the "what did you pay for your OB thread" just a few posts down.
I couldn't buy a used one when the price difference between used and new was so close.

You buy the dealership as much as you buy any car, bike or boat. If you feel uneasy about those stipulations now, returning for repairs will eat you alive. Use the forum to find a decent Sub at a decent price and relax.

It looks like a nice car at a good price, as long as they don't try and jack up the price with the mentioned fine print provisions. One thing that you should be aware of is many 2010s and 2011s had shaker issues. I would want to see the Subaru service records to determine if there were any attempts at correcting this. If so I would probably walk. Here is a whole thread on the issue that I would read through carefully before taking a test drive: Steering Wheel Shake Issues - Subaru Outback - Subaru Outback Forums
