To be clear, I had no expectation, and I am certainly not complaining about a one hour wait time for a response! My original question was only out of curiosity of what others experienced. I am very pleased with my experience with Grand.

That is a good price. Congrats! When is your estimated delivery date? I had to wait at Grand too for about 30 minutes, plus I had an appointment. It was an annoying wait, but worth it at the end. No nonsense and best prices right at the start.

Agreed 100%. I was pretty surprised when I found out she'd waited less than an hour before making the original post.

I am glad to hear positive things about Grand. I placed an order on 11/13/14 for an outback 2.5i premium with eyesight. The best price around by over a thousand dollars. Most other dealers don't even believe the pricing.

Anyone have any surprises when they completed the transaction? My only issue is the time it is taking to get it, I still dont have a VIN nor an estimated arrival date.

Other dealers seem to have some outbacks in stock that I am interested in, but none are coming within $1500 of Grand Subaru's deal. How do they do it? Anyone have issues with delivery times.

Grand was my best price quote too. If I was able to fly there to get the car I would have done it, but I can't leave here. Shipping was going to be $1200, which would have eaten my savings, so I went with the second best deal with shipping at half the price, and still came out ahead compared to all the in-state dealers.

I ordered mine at Grand on 9/11/14 and picked it up on 12/13/14. I received the vin# after 9 weeks and with the est. arrival date on 12/2/14. At the end, Grand received the car on 12/8/14.

Are you happy you waited and bought through grand? What did they tell you in Sept about wait time?

I have the car for four days and I am liking it so far. I ordered a 2.5i Premium with hitch and auto-dimming mirrors as the only options. I tend to keep my cars til for a long time so I omitted all the fancy options. I was not in need of a car so the wait was not a problem.

I was pre-approved with my loan through the Subaru/Chase website so I only spent an hour at Grand when I went picking up my car. Overall, it was the easiest car buying experience ever (last time I bought a new car was in 2005). Everything was done through emails and phone calls.

When I placed my order, the sales person told me the wait is about 8 - 10 weeks.

Thanks for your input, you helped reconfirm Grand is the right place to buy and I just need to be patient. I am just shocked that other dealers can't come close to their prices (like within $1500)
