#1348 of 3516 Re: buying car from your boundary states, is there any additional surcharge
Dec 07, 2006 (5:32 am)
I bought my 2001 Forester at Liberty and had no complaints with the sales experience. We wound up buying our two Outbacks at Kolb Subaru in Orangeburg, NY, due to their proximity to work. Great experiences there, also. They both have large selections and a fair amount of 5 speed manuals, if that makes a difference. Both are Subaru exclusive, so they don't sell or service anything else. I don't think you can go wrong at either dealership.
I hope this helps.

Greetings. Am purchasing a 2007 XT this weekend and am on the homestretch with a couple dealers who have comparable deals. However, one car has the security shock sensor installed which I don't really need/want. Is it possible to deactivate/silence the siren? Thanks.

Nope... It's the horn
#1351 of 3516 CA Purchases vs. Buying Elsewhere
Dec 12, 2006 (3:40 pm)
In watching these posts, I've noticed that buyers in Mid-Atlantic and NE states consistently seem to get the best deals on their new Subarus. Even factoring in more stringent emissions controls in CA, why is there such a difference, especially since I understand that most, if not all, Subarus arrive in the US via CA. Am I mistaken, or what?

Legacy, Outback and B9 Tribeca are built in Indiana, so imported Subarus are Impreza and Forester, which come in through Baltimore and Vancouver (WA), I believe. The Port of Vancouver was Subaru's sole port of entry for a while. Newport News, VA, was also a port of entry... not sure if Subaru continues importing there as well as Baltimore, or if Baltimore replaced Newport News. I don't think any Subarus arrive in CA.
I live in the NW, and I think the deals I've gotten have been every bit as good as in the Mid-Atlantic states. Subaru of New England actually adds on a surcharge, so buying in New England could cost you more money, not less.

Many factors exist, mostly supply and demand. And while demand is high here, there are plenty of dealerships, 7 near me.
#1354 of 3516 Did you buy extended warrantee for your Subaru ?
Dec 15, 2006 (9:43 am)
Hi everyone, just curious if you bought any extended dealer warrantee when you bought your subaru? My dealer suggested me the other day that they offered a 5yr/60000ml warrantee inaddition to the standard 3yr/36000ml for about $420. Since this is my first Subura, I am not sure if this is necessary. Anyone can give me some advice here?

Price sounds good, and remember you get free roadside assistance for the entire duration.
If you pay for AAA now, that'll save you a bunch right there, and it may be worth it.

In addition to what -juice said - make sure it is an extended factory warranty (if available) & not a third party one. If it's a third party, read it VERY carefully before getting it. Most of them aren't worth the paper....in my opinion.
An extended factory warranty *usually* can be purchased up to the end of your original warranty. In other words, if you have a 3 year warranty, you can purchase it at 35 months if you think you may need it. You may decide to trade or sell it before then.

That is a good price. The dealer cost is 350 bucks for the best one as there are two levels if I am not mistaken. "Retail" recommended is like 750. Mine offered at the 350.
So check also what level it is...One has more limited coverage.
