Don’t pay over MSRP. You’ll lose all that money in resale and the car just isn’t that special.
Got my XT at Irvine Subaru, they had one marked up 10k, the sales person bragged about how its a competition to see how much over MSRP they could get people to pay....I should have walked away from that mess to be honest but in the end they met my conditions of MSRP and T1 financing rate. Tried to say I had to buy a $2000 warranty or else I would only qualify for 4%....I think its because I am only 21 and well look like young child but these idiots quickly realized they need to meet my terms or I could go to any if the 5 other Subaru dealers in the greater LA South CA area. I knew before walking in my credit scores put me at T1 and they even showed me what they pulled, only to come back with that BS.
Get on Cars.com and Autotrader.com and do a search of dealer inventory at 100-200 mi radius (or whatever distance your willing to travel one way to pick one up). Then set up your deal over the net before going to get it. You'll get better pricing and selection that way. (I did ). You can have the car serviced locally regardless of where you buy it.So sounds like MSRP and the 1.9% 48 month is the best I will do. I'm good with that if I can find a deal like yours. Thanks for the help.
^ThisThis is a terrible time/market to buy a new vehicles...the supply is limited due to the global chip shortage and other parts and transportation challenges. If you don't need to buy now, don't. Some dealers (regardless of brand) are charging above MSRP for vehicles right now because they can...supply and demand economics. It's not a "Subaru" thing at all.
Yep. I donate anyways. Be sure you verify the dealer accepts the VIP form both before placing an order and before you negotiate price, because there will be no negotiation. Many dealers do not accept VIP.Become a member of a Subaru VIP organization. I have read the fastest way to get access is to make a $500 ASPCA donation. You will want to confirm before trying it, but I have read this on several Subaru forums. Most VIP orgs have a waiting period before gaining VIP access. From what I have read (again you should confirm), ASPCA waves this period for a donation of $500 or more.
