#1424 of 3516 Price I paid for my Forester 2007
Feb 09, 2007 (10:43 am)
I just bought my first Subaru Forester 2.5X and Iím very pleased with my purchased. It was the base model, and the only extra option it had on it was the popular equipment group 1 (rear bumper guard, cargo tray, and splash guards) I didnít need this option, as the car had everything else I wanted on it, it was the only one they had in stock, in the color I wanted, and I didnít want to wait for one without this minor option, which they threw in, if I was willing to purchase the car right then. I went through an online quote
Doc fee 58.48
State Lic. 15.00
County Tax 157.35
State tax 1483.63

THis is a manual, with privacy glass (only option, I think). I want to try for $16, 400 out door, including full tank of gas. Am I crazy?
Do Portland cars pass CA emissions? Maybe I should come up there? Any dealer suggestions?
Thank you for responding.

Privacy glass in this case would be aftermarket tint film. Make sure it's well applied, and not peeling at the corners. Tint still isn't available on Foresters, even today.

#1428 of 3516 Fair Price for LL Bean?

Is $24,555 (including destination) a fair/good/bad price for a new LL Bean Forester? That does not include the $225 processing, & tags & taxes. That is about $1,000 below invoice.
thanks in advance

I see 24317 at fitzmall.com, and their processing fee is $99.
However, depends on the region. If you're in Alaska, that price is phenomenal. Depends on local supply/demand.

Thanks! That was helpful. I am in the NoVa area - sounds like fitzmall would be a good benchmark price then since they are local to me.
thanks again for the input.

Cool. Ask for Maurice if you go. Tell him AJ sent ya.
I actually have to go see him, tell him I'm looking for a CPO Tribeca and to keep an eye out for one for me. Also to get my trade appraised. It's a bit early for me, I want to see the 08s.

I think your target price is going to be tough to get. Worth shooting for but I think $17k is more realistic. See how low they'll go. I assume OTD doesn't include sales tax. NW pricing is competitive. Don't remember if the 06 Subies are 50 state emmisions legal though. Carr Subaru in Beaverton has good weekend ad prices. List prices (including internet prices) are nutty. Carr is the #1 Subaru dealer in the nation. That being said, I've found better used deals at other dealers.
Honestly, I'd consider a brand new 07. Manuals are listed at $18k all the time around here.

That's very nice. In NYC area the rebate is only $1,500 for 2.5X models.
