I went to Subaru Stamford, it's right off I-95 exit 6.
I got in contact with the internet manager using Subaru's website for a quote, here's his email: jdimeglioSubaruStamford.com (Jonathan) otherwise just go through the website. His price was on point from the beginning, buying a 2010 and last week of month may have helped. Also note that the doc fee was 299 and that may vary by dealer and state so take that in consideration in overall price when comparing locally in VT.

Hi try Georgetown Subaru - Reid Ferris, I think they're in CT too, I seem to remember he had good prices too. I almost bought from him but really didn't want to go to Ct.
Joepat any luck with the warranties?

Best car I have ever owned.

I'm trying to decide on the 2010 or 2011 forester. I live in Canada. I don't have a lot of cash to buy but I'm trying to decide if it's better to buy one of lease. (In the pasat I've leased 2 legacy wagons, which I miss now that they're gone.)
Here lease rates for 3 years, for 2010 Sport tech, are 1.9% with .48% residual; the 2011 is 3.9% with .58% residual. I was told the 2011 is the best lease deal.
To purchase the 2010 Sport Tech is 2.9% with 5 years; the 2011 is 4.9% for 5 years. so they said buying the 2010 is the better deal there.
I am not great at figuring these things out, so I appreciate any advice. They say the sport techs are going very quickly.
Also, is it worth waiting for the 2011? I don't care about the GPS. If I lease, I'm not concerned about replacing the timing belt since it won't be an issue, but are the improvements to the 2011 worth the extra cost? I'm also thinking of going through Carcost Canada as I have in the past. They made it pretty painless.
Also, if I lease again, should i put a down payment into it?
thanks for the help. I need to make a decision very soon, and I always get nervous about the number crunching. thanks.

With a 10% residual edge I'd go with the 2011 on a lease.
Even on a purchase, it's only 2% more interest. In the long run you'll probably get some of that money back at trade-in time, and you can enjoy the enhancements the whole time. Plus, if you buy, the timing chain helps.

I want to buy a 2011 Forester std. model auto, and I got a price $20525 + $347(TTL).Is that a good deal? Thank you.

You're among the first, so there may be no deals to compare to. Sounds about right, though.

Which trim did you get? any options/accessories? because that price is basically the MSRP for the base 2.5X
I got a 2.5X Premium w/ AWP for 22,000 before taxes/fees.
#3099 of 3509 new 2011 Forester Limited
Nov 28, 2010 (6:29 pm)
After looking around for a long time, I finally went ahead and bought a 2011 Forester Limited yesterday. Seeing pricing on these forums has been really useful to me so, so I thought some of you might be interested in hearing what I paid. It's a little tricky to figure out the numbers, but I'd say the approximate discount ended up being about $3,400 off MSRP. It had been advertised at $3,100 off MSRP. Really liking the Forester so far.
