2013 Outback 2.5i Limited with Moonroof and Navigation

I paid $30,200 for a 2013 Limited with moonroof, navigation, body side molding, puddle lights, splash guards, rear bumper cover and rear side compartment cargo net. The MSRP was $33,341.

Even though I didn't buy the car through a Costco dealer I used the Costco pricing of $600 below invoice for negotiating purposes. There is plenty of bargaining room on the 2013 as dealers are getting double hold backs and even more bargaining room on the 2012's. You can get accurate invoice pricing on the 2012 from www.edmunds.com. Also look at www.truecar.com, as they have pricing for both 2012 and 2013. The following can be found on www.cars101.com.

6/13 2013 prices announced- destination now $795. Minor increases- 2.5 Premium +$200, 2.5 Limited +$400. Eyesight drive assist/moonroof/Navigation package is $3940, Special Appearance/moonroof/Navigation package is $3645

I was going to hold out for a 2013 but I got tired of waiting, so I bought my 2012 on May 29th for $25.8k ($2k under MSRP) before TTL. A good deal - not the best, but far from the worst. I also got the dealer to raise my trade in to full KBB value on my 2008 trade in and Subaru beat my preapproval for finiancing through my Credit Union, so I got 2.90%. I didn't want 0.9% on a shorter term loan. They also let me take my trade in home that night so that I could strip it down (amp, subwoofer, trailer hitch, LED tail lights, etc.) - I made several hundred dollars selling that stuff to people on my old forum.






My car:
  • 2.5i Premium
  • CVT
  • All Weather Package
  • popular package 1b (Auto dimming rear view mirror with compass and Homelink, Splash guards, Rear bumper cover, Rubber floor mats )
  • rear cargo net
  • 2 yrs free maintenance
  • $500 Costco Card
  • $50 dealer gift certificate
  • On top, I paid an additional $700 for the 6yr/80k Gold Plus warranty (down from $1800 MSRP)
I self-installed some additional stuff:
  • wheel arch moldings (OEM)
  • rear seat back protector (OEM)
  • front metal license plate bracket (OEM)
  • Pioneer Appradio 2 (Aftermarket)
  • Subwoofer (aftermarket)
  • rear view camera (aftermarket)
  • 4500k HID headlights (aftermarket)
  • Torklift hitch (aftermarket)
  • 2x Inno INA383 bike carriers (aftermarket)
Katzskin leather is next, then I should be about finished. Loving this car. :D

...still haven't spent the Costco money. I wish the were Katzkin dealers.

The 2.5 Prem/CVT is the price leader in this class, a lot buck-bang for $25K.<O:p</O:p<O:p</O:p

Another intangible, time is money.<O:p</O:p
The more time you spend with your rep, you’ll pay for that. Spend as less time as possible with your dealer, and not be a showroom fixture. You should be able to reach a negotiated transaction within 2-3 counteroffers.

Is that right? You got 0.9% APR? I went to a local dealer and they said SOA is only offering 2.9% on 2013 models. This rate should not change from dealer to dealer right?

I was a little surprised also. But it was only available for 36 months. We also have very good credit, but not sure how much that has to do with anything.

Picked up my 13 today.
Trade in my 2012 limited + moonroof at $25,750 (My 12 was bought at 28k)
My 13 limited + moonroof + nav+ eyesight + other stuffs is $29,995. MSRP is around $34.5k.

I negotiated with difference directly.
The total difference OTD is $5000 (around 9% tax here).
Since I have bought the maintenance plan last year, I have a $500 coupon to buy a new subaru.
After using the coupon, I canceled the plan and got about $250 back
(SOA told me to use the coupon and then cancel it because I did not finished the plan and it can not be transferred from 12 to 13 :))

So the final price is around $4250 OTD Difference.
Re-Finance with 2.59% APR 60 months. (my previous APR is 2.79%)

Could not be happier about the new car. However, eyesight cruise control is a little bit scary for me because I always brake ahead than normal people (I drive very defensively), I always feel that the eyesight brakes later than I thought. But, it works very well in Chicago's highway traffic.

I guess the APR has to do with loan history? I saw 0.9%, 2.75%, 2.9% in the forum. The local dealer i went to today said only 2.9% for 36-month and 4.9% for 60-month. hmm...
