I bought 100000 mile extended warranty for my 2002 Forester and haven't had a chance to use it yet. I have 92K miles on the car. Other than a heat shield rattle ($30 fix), my car has been trouble free. Since you already get 5year/60K power train warranty, why spend $420 on 2year/24Kmiles bumper to bumper warranty? If you are worried about roadside assistance, you can get a GM motor club membership for $60/year and use their unlimited towing service. AAA towing service sucks unless you get their premium membership.

I agree. One or two year old car purchase works very well in case of domestic brands or even Hyundai or Kia. For cars that have very good resale value, the savings will be minimal.

#1368 of 3515 Classic Car Buying Situation Works out in end
Jan 01, 2007 (5:29 pm)
So I ended up getting a 2007 X Premium package Automatice for a $265/mo 24 month 10k/year lease but it took some work. This was in west springfield Mass. First they tried to sell me a base 2007 Tribeca for $349 month but my wife thought it was too big. So we started to look at the Forester. They let us take it home overnight (it only had 1 mile on it).
The next day I did not like the lease terms ($316 a month) so we had to get up and literally almost leave before I was asked what price would work and they finally went for the $22500 price.
In the end they were very nice and even gave us a loaner since it was a holiday and we couln't complete the purcahse.

I was quoted 21150 on a 2.5 x trim automatic, this is OTD price includes all taxes.
mrsp price is 22924. in southern Ca
Is this a fair price or can I do better.

It is a fair price, I am assuming your sales tax is 8.25%. You might be able to do tad better. Try $21000 OTD.
#1371 of 3515 18 five for auto X
Jan 06, 2007 (6:44 am)
Wow!, I think that's the least expensive I have seen. My 04 X manual was 19 and that was a good deal then.
I did get my 07 Premium Package (MT) for 21,973 including 500 rebate and 500 loyalty discount. I gave the 500 rebate back for financing so ended up at 22,973... I also got that guaranteed trade in thing for my 04. I know it was a good deal because my dealer let Subaru take it and said they couldn't make any money on it.
I did have to settle for white. I'm keeping this one till the wheels fall off.
#1372 of 3515 Good price for a Forester X - auto transmission ?
Jan 06, 2007 (8:46 am)
I was quoted $19,100 (inclusive of all charges except tax/tag) by a dealer for the base model Forester with auto transmission. Is thia a good price and also is there any specific option package that anybody would think makes sense adding. I am looking for a base car with the main needs being safety and reliability ( think I have passed the age for 'style' and 'oomph'...!!)
