2021 Touring XT in Crystal White Pearl
just surprised that's all, given the shortage of cars now and the drying up of discounts. Hurray for Subaru!
Here's a history of their interest rates:Anyone know how often Subaru does these kinds of offers? I'm picking mine up mid-June and I'm a bit worried there won't be any promotions then and I'll just be forced to take whatever I can get.
I was about to say it would be hard to find when they haven’t done 0% for the shorter term loans for qualified buyers. Those deals were running back in 2013 when I bought my first outback.Here's a history of their interest rates:
All my accounts are with chase, which makes it incredibly easy to auto pay. In fact that was the main reason I went with Subaru financing.So....here's my experience with Subaru's 0 percent financing. A story not about Subaru but about Chase who you end up dealing with.
Tried to set up automatic billing. Take the payment out of my checking. After a long time trying to get their web site to accept my account from another bank, I eventually gave up and had to call Chase on-line help. After the long wait to get to talk to someone, he said right away, since this is apparently a common problem, to insert one zero in front of the account number and it would work. It did. Yay!
A week or two later, the payment got rejected by PNC. After 2+ hours on the phone with Chase, it turns out that the account number should have been prefaced by two zeros. Apparently their software can't handle account numbers with fewer digits than theirs, they can't write the code to insert the needed zeros before the account numbers that have insufficient digits, and they don't even bother to put a note on the page that you need a minimum number of digits.
Next try to schedule automatic payments with the IT guy on the phone. After 20 more minutes of you should be able to do it, he says that the changes have to sync with the system and try the next day.
Tried two days later on April 7th and had success...Yay! Schedule the next payments for April 30th and beyond.
Yesterday checked to see that the payment occurred as scheduled and TWO payments were taken out of my account on April 30th.
Called again. Apparently this is ANOTHER COMMON PROBLEM. When you set up the automatic payment Chase sets up a one-time payment AND the scheduled payment so you get hit with two payments. The Chase person asked if I wanted to apply the second payment to June....NOOOOO!
The moral of this story...0 interest is great but monitor Chase. They're incredibly incompetent.
Just an FYI, I'm planning a Forester purchase and I'm currently waiting because the 2022 release will be the mid-cycle refresh and likely a lot of changes. Note however it will probably be near the end of the year before you can get one. If you are not in a hurry it is something to consider. No idea if it will bring back XT or more powerful engine options, but updated Eyesight is almost guaranteed from the spy shots.0% dropped from 63 to 48 months on 2021 models per my sales rep. Pretty sure it's the same for the Forester. Still deciding on an Outbsck XT touring vs a Forester Touring.
My local dealer is pretty chill. my current lease is not up until October so I've got time. If I decide to go Forester, I'll probably order a 21 and if I decide the 22 is worth it after announced I'll switch my order and my dealer will sell to someone else. They do enough business they know they will sell a Subaru and don't need to charge or pressure someone to buy.Just an FYI, I'm planning a Forester purchase and I'm currently waiting because the 2022 release will be the mid-cycle refresh and likely a lot of changes.
