The invoice price less 2% of a 2014 Forester Premium PZEV Automatic CVT with all weather package added is $24,300 (per edmunds.com). Subtract the tax and dmv and your price shouldn't be higher than $24,300.
This is how much you would pay if you used the Subaru VIP program (available if you join several groups -- IMBA is the least expensive at $30 per year --- must be a member for a minimum of 6 months before purchase).

Thanks in advance for the replies/answers to my questions...
There is currently an offer of 1.9% financing for all new 2014 Foresters. I'd much prefer a cash back offer. Does Subaru ever offer cash back incentives in place of low interest rate financing incentives? If so, how often does Subaru switch their promotions? i.e., when/how often should I check back with my local dealers to see if a cash back offer has emerged?

thanks so much for the reply. Really appreciate it. Wish I knew about this option 6 months ago...that would have to count among the best 30$ anyone has ever spent. I'll have to see if any of the dealerships will honor it, but I'm already guessing I know the answer...."gee...we'd like to, but subaru gives us $$$ back to support members of this program. Since you aren't actually a member, we won't get support from Subaru, and so we will actually lose money selling you this car....."
How much truth there is in this statement is unknown, but I'll see what I can do.
Wonder if anyone else had luck with this approach??

I've not seen anything and would not expect to on a new model like the Forester. They are offering more incentives on remaining 2013s and on the sedans. Foresters and outbacks seem to be holding their own.

I recently got a quote for a 2014 Forester 2.5i Limited using Costco. The car in question also includes (supposedly no charge)
- Dark Gray Metallic Body Side Molding Kit
- Rear Bumper Cover
- Front Side Sill Plate
- Splash Guard Kit
The price quoted is $27392 OTD price is $28581 ($299 doc fee, $822 taxes, $68 tag fee)
I have never had to haggle before and want to know if I can push this any further.

wow. incredible deal. Are you saying you got a premium CVT with the all weather package and the auto dim mirrors for under 24K?
What state are you located in...and did you have any loyalty rebates or anything attached to that or are you just a really fine negotiator?

I am working with a small dealer in MD area. The salesperson is very sincere in his job and works with you to get all the necessary documents needed to do your own financing. He sent me the PO via email.

Sounds like a great price. Did the sale price include destination?
