#3518 of 3627 Good price for 2014 Forester Touring 2.5
May 29, 2013 (4:10 pm)
This is my first foray into buying a Subaru. I am trying to figure out a "good" price for a 2014 Forester Touring 2.5. It seems like $500 under invoice is a good price, but I can't seem to find enough data in these boards and on the internet. If you have purchased this car what is a good price?
It seems that asking for $27,300 + TTL is a very good price. Is that correct?
I'm not interested in getting the extra option (although could be convinced if you have advice on that)
Thanks in advance.

From truecar.com, which you should try. $100 below invoice for California is a good deal for 2.5 Touring. Grand total $27,951 + $300 (regional ad fee) + $825 (destination fee) = $29,076. Then you need to add sale tax, doc fee and other state fees.
Though you can get XT Premium for $26,957 in California. Strangely, it does not include regional ad fee for XT Premium.

The price is based on where you're located. I'm new york city, my neighbor just paid 500 over invoice for a touring.

As always, it is case by case. You will know if that is reasonable or not by see how dealership would react. So, I would try different dealerships to see which one that I would deal with. Not every dealership is the same as you know it.
What you want is to pay less than others pay at your area. You will never know what is the bottom line price for dealership, so there is no point to work yourself to death for couple hundred dollars. After all, $500 is not that much when you put it next to close to $30,000 out of pocket expanse for you.
$500 is like 2 months of gas money at most, so is it worthy to push that hard? Also, if you push too hard at dealership, you got to wonder if they will take good care of your car before delivery. Trust me, they have ways to abuse your car in ways you cannot imagine.
So, you also want to make dealership happy until you get the car. So, spending $500 more to keep them happy to ensure longevity of your car is nothing.

Thank you for your responses. I just got an offer for $27,750 + TTL (in Virginia) which I think is awesome. A little haggling worked!

Could you let me know the dealer for your deal? I am living in Ellicott City. I need to get a 2014 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium in these two days.
Thank you very much!
