A local dealer here in Wisconsin is advertising a 2.5i Limited with the all weather package (Model DDD-02) for $25,990. This price looks great. Am I missing something? The MSRP is $29,890 and the invoice price is $27,448. This deal seems too good to be true. Subaru is also offering 0.9% financing this month. Any advice?

From my experience, "deals" like that assume military discount, student discount, loyalty program, etc.

I ran across a deal like that when I was shopping for my Honda S2000. In my case, the car had been wrecked on a test drive and repaired.

$4k off MSRP is not unusual for a single "loss" leader.

It could also be the old "Bait and switch." A merchant advertises a great deal on a product, but when you get there they let you know they just sold the advertised item "minutes ago" - BUT they just happen to have another similar item for just a little bit more money.
