#279 of 308 Only 4 Tribecas...
May 20, 2005 (4:37 pm)
I was at my dealer today and they told me they were only getting 4 Tribecas between now and Decmber 31st. Apparently it is the same for all Canadian dealers.
#280 of 308 Ready to buy an XS, just some info
May 30, 2005 (5:13 pm)
All, I am an Subaru newbie and have been convinced that the Forester is my best bet for what I am looking for. I really need this ASAP and was wondering a few things. Does anyone know if any 2004 are kicking around this late into the next season. Can anyone give me the Candian price breakdown for the 2005 ie invoice price vs MSRP. What about the LL Bean edition?
Also has anyone ever used APA to get a quote? Is it worth it? Was it the lowest.
Thanks in advance for any help.
#281 of 308 Calgary dealers

Hi guys, I may have missed it in previous posts but What reliable dealer is there (only 2 I think?) in Calgary to buy a Subaru and where to have it serviced (not always the same place).

Was at a Vancouver area dealer today (am buying a VDC). he has 2 tribecas on the lot & 1 in the show room. Claims he's sold 11 of them already. They are quiet big, lots of rear leg room. Would be very comfortable for long hauls i would guess.

Mark, I have had pretty good luck with Subaru of Calgary. We bought my wifes' TS wagon there, the sales experience was pretty decent. I do most of my own maintenance, but the times I have had service work done there, it has been satisfactory, but not awesome by any means. Hope this helps.

Seems to be off to a good start. My local dealer had sold 11 also, and that was the 3rd day after they'd arrived!

Seconded hugely re: Sub Calgary. I really like dealing with Terry Bharti, he's been there forever and is a genuine, no BS kind of guy. So is Jack, the sales manager. As for servicing, great so far (5 years) if a little pricey, maybe it's the effect of a joint dealership with Jaguar. There is an independent Subaru specialist in Calgary (Allmakes? Allsubaru? something like that). I have heard they are good but I dont have any experience with them.

I'm in the process of buying a 05 VDC & went through Cars at Cost. On the outbacks, the markup is about 10%, so the dealer then adds a markup of about $1,200 to the invoice price. He's currently trying to find me my colour: Monotone Gold. My deal was a bit more complicated as I was trading in a car (low mileage but some scratches) and we settle on less than I wanted but well up from what was originally offered. Will sign once I get a delivery confirmation as I think the deal is fair. I went in prepared which helped.
Don't know anything about APA
#288 of 308 03 Legacy GT driver side floor mat hook broken
Jul 26, 2006 (8:45 pm)
I just bought a used 03 Legacy GT. The driver side floor mat hook is broken right out of the base. I noticed that when I exit the car, its hard not to push on the mat with your foot. I phoned the dealer and was told they would sell me a replacement for a few bucks. Apparently, it fastens to the seat bolts. Anyone else tried this? How well does it work? How easy is it to do? I'm not worried about the cost - just don't want to spend an hour driving to the dealer and 1/2 hr installing if its not a good solution.
Also, any advice on where to get accessories? The dealer has some rubber mats but says they are not exact fit. I'd rather get a custom fit for rubber ones. Has anyone tried buying accessories online like subarupartsmall.com? I'm thinking of getting a spoiler with matching paint.
