Hello all! We are looking to buy a 13' 3.6 special appearance Outback. We have done NO negotiating so far. I am looking to go in with our best out the door offer. Currently with NO negotiating done the out the door price is $41,522..obviously that price is out of the question. I am also going to ask for a few additional items be added on. Tow package and rear seat protector. It has everything we could possibly want, but any add on suggestions are appreciated as well :D
So what is a fair out the door price in your opinion? I am in Arizona if that make a difference :)

This will be our first Subaru!

That was out the door

Hi, the 41,5 was out the door price..again no negotiations were made. I really liked the salesman and the owner. I would like to give our business to them, but just want the best out the door price i can get..as anyone would i assume :) I was thinking that 37k out the door was a good offer, but heck that is where i was hoping people would pop in and say it was or wasn't a good price. In addition to that out the door price i wanted the tow hitch which i think is approx $600 or so rear seat protectors, illumination kit. not sure there is much more that the car doesn't have that i should ask for to be included in that price?

ahh!

If you like the salesman and owner, then they have done THEIR job. Now it is your turn. Shop around and find the best price, even it you must look out of State. That price seems a bit high even if it includes tax ?

Just my opinion....

Right! I know..So, in your opinion what price is a good price for the 3.6R Limited with special appearance package?
If 37K out the door isn't good what is?
I figured that the sticker price is 36,888 or something close to that. Deduct 10% from that..
So, perhaps 35,5 out the door?
I don't want to be unreasonable and want to give them an firm and final offer. i don't want to haggle for days.
:confused::confused::confused:

NO DEAL Yet

Well made my initial offer..and so far a no go. I offered 35,5 out the door..they came back with 38,9 out the door...ughh. REally want the car, but don't want to over pay. Any suggestions? Again I am in AZ and the tax, license etc are about 4K of this price! crazy!

That's where looking at other dealerships will help you negotiate the price. Go to another (or two, three..) dealership and see where their document and motor vehicle transfer/registration fees are landing, then go back to the original dealership and ask them to meet those prices.

If they still don't budge, then I don't know why you like the salesperson and owner. Go somewhere else.

Problem here is the owner owns 5 of the dealerships in the area! I will give them time to stew and see what happens. If anything i will go out of state later in the year and buy one! I just feel like the price they are coming back with is high..almost 39K is just too much! :28:

So if I remember your numbers right, what it comes down to is that you're expecting over $5k off MSRP + Fees + TTL? I'm not surprised they're not receptive to that.

:eek: It was just a starting price..not that i really expected them to escort the papers to my house ready to sign at my low offer price:D..But i also feel like
their MSRP was high...So, do you think their "internet" sale price is their bottom line? MY guess is NO WAY! $34,080 is their internet price..You would pay that? :confused:
I'm just asking for a fair price..I have looked at what others have paid in the forums and NOBODY has paid close to 39k out the door :gasp:

Identical only ours was Brown..

I paid $33,250 for ours. The MSRP was $37,500. Add 6% Pa tax and $150 title.

I think the price they have could be a bit better.. If you can get $4K off your doing ok..

Well, it is hard to compare true out the door prices when you are crossing state lines. A fairer comparison would be final price before TTL. Arizona seems to have high taxes, so your OTD price would naturally seem high.

I just paid 33.5k + ~2.5k taxes and fees for a 3.6r with Eyesight with a few accessories. I really don't think that the internet pricing is all that ridiculous at 34k, it is comparable to Heuberger in Colorado, who is often used as a good reference point before buying. I am guessing best you can do is that price including the accessories you want, even that may be a stretch.

Thanks for your information and thoughts. All in all i just want to walk away happy with the price paid. I am willing to walk out the door paying 37k..but not 39K..I just don't feel like that is a great price. I also don't think starting at 35,8 was a terrible starting point. I figured we would haggle a little and in the end settle somewhere in the middle. I love the car and will end up with it eventually even if it is from a different dealership in another state :)
