I meant 2004 Forester.

We can't get any deals here, right? Just paid $28,520.00 (after haggling some) for 2003 Forester 2.5X with rear cargo tray "thrown in". Extras were air conditioning tax of $100, tire tax of $15, vehicle registration fee of $212, tank of gas and licensing service fee of $59, and a fee for setting up the loan of $46. Took a loan of 5 years at 3.8% interest (it is 2.9% in the USA). So, no real deal on the "clearance of 2003 Foresters" except for the financing. And I did call around. There are still 2003 Foresters at the Toronto depot. Hope this helps you.

Demand tends to be very high for Subies in Canada, it's been that way for as long as I've known.

Wow, that's a new one...

In march I purchased a 2003 Forester X Automatic with two popular Equip groups that included mudflaps, cargo area mat, tailpipe cover, armrest extender, roof rails (don't think I am missing anything).
The dealer marked-up price was 25,245.00 because they add on 3000.00 just for those who walk in and don't haggle (so they said) but I refused to deal from the mark-up. I have personal issues with car dealerships and salesmen. I dated one for awhile. Bad idea. But that is beside the point.
They had run an ad for $3000.000 off MSRP in the local paper. The ad referenced certain VIN#'s but the cars referenced were all gold or silver XS's and I wanted a red X so I left. I didn't want painted bumpers because of past experience camping with painted bumpers and worrying about them getting scratched up. I also had a moonroof before and never used it. It is either too hot, raining or too windy here. I was able to open it 20 days a year if I was lucky.
The salewoman called me that night (surpised? Not.) saying the sales manager had agreed to give me the 3000.000 off the Red X model I wanted.
I paid 19,245.00. I was and still am quite happy. This is my second Subie. Had a '91 Legacy Wagon for more than 10 years w/o any mechanical problems except it needed new boots at 85,000 mi. Not a single problem with the new one after 5000 miles and 4 months of camping trips and one trip to Disneyland in it already.
Can't imagine having anything else but a Subaru ever again.

Congrats and welcome to the Crew.
We have a chat every week, in fact it's tonight at 9pm eastern. We'd love to have you join and tell us all about it - for instance, what color?
#37 of 40 Thank you for the welcome ateixeira

Ah...it is Caynenne Red Pearl and I get compliments on the color quite often. I also just waxed it with Maguiera's wax Saturday and it is striking. Of course, I am biased.
I will get to the Gallery and post a photo soon. Just need to have them developed and scan one.
Thanks for the info. on the chat. Sounds like fun.

There are now specific Subaru model topics on the new What Did You Pay? sub-board in Smart Shopper. Therefore, this discussion will be closed.
