We just bought our Outback Limited 3.6R from St. Cloud Subaru in central Minnesota and are happy to say that we had a very good experience. I got the Subaru VIP ticket through my work and my wife and I were treated very well.
Once we had decided on the exact car we wanted, the sales manager showed us the VIP pricing and it exactly matched what I knew from my company website. He then said that he could improve on that price and wrote down a figure that was around $1000 less. They didn't have the exact model we wanted but managed to get one before the end of March so we also go the 0% interest on the loan. I get it - they wanted to make the sale before the end of the month, we got a better deal than the VIP pricing and they still made a profit. I consider this a Win-Win situation.
This is the new showroom at the other end of the block from the old one. It was clean and well lit including the service bays. All the people we talked to were very courteous. I would highly recommend St.Cloud Subaru. I felt that as long as I didn't try to be entitled about stuff and didn't try to beat them down on everything, then they wouldn't nickel & dime me to death. I suspect that if we were nasty about things, they would have kept quiet about the better price and we would have paid the higher VIP price
