MSRP/INVOICE/PURCHASE PRICE thread

Can we make this post a place for everybody to post their MSRP/INVOICE/PURCHASE PRICE?

I think that's a question many of us want to ask when somebody buys one as it is the most pertinent aspect of their purchase to our future purchase and posting the deals we all got in here will help future buyers negotiate.

When I purchased my last vehicle, I was able to go the BMW forum prior to ordering the vehicle and located a thread by a BMW insider who posted true invoice on each BMW vehicle and invoice pricing on options. What a valuable piece of information. I would like to see a thread listed for buyers:2015 Subaru Outback MSRP and Invoice Buyers Download. I have a hard time believing options listed are what dealer pays the factory for added options so I tend to think the true dealer invoice is lower than most buyers think.

My sticker said $34,561 and they stated flat out that was the price they paid. I called while sitting in the show room, on speaker, to another dealer and asked to order the same car, they quoted $31,056. My dealer quickly called the GM and they not only price matched but I got all season floor matts, trunk tray, cargo nets, and the theft upgrade at no cost.

I later haggled for an hour with the finance manager to get 2.99% then later 2.75% and a gap/10year warranty at the same monthly rate as 2.99%.

It takes awhile, but if you don't have a problem being a jerk you can get better deals.

You have more negotiating to do if your price is above invoice... Unless you just don't have any Subaru dealers within driving distance.

There are actually 3 within driving distance but none willing to come down any further than $200 above invoice.. Most wanted $500-$800 more.

Parky, you should read up on the VIP program. If you need to buy immediately, check out the ASPCA one.

My assumption in starting this post was that everybody will get 2% below invoice, so the purpose was to see examples of where people were able to negotiate below that, or to get additional items added on at invoice or lesser, such as a warranty or dealer add ons.

There are 5-6 dealers within a 3 hour drive from where I live, so presumably, if I can use VIP to get 2% below from any of them, one should be willing to go lower to secure my business, correct? The negotiations will just be made easier if there are other examples to point to and will be helpful for every future negotiator.

The last time I was at the Subaru dealer in Riverhead, NY (summer 2012), I told the salesperson I wanted to pay 2% under invoice for a 2013. The manager came out and told me he was insulted by my offer and I left.

The dealer in Huntington, NY wouldn't take more than $1,000.00 off MSRP. I had much better luck negotiating at the dealership in Hicksville, but for whatever reason, we decided that my wife should lease a Passat instead. We'll check out '16 OBs next summer for her.
