#3544 of 3629 Paid $30,999 for 2014 Forester 2.0XT Touring
Jun 24, 2013 (12:02 pm)
Just bought my first ever Subaru last night from David C. Shortline Subaru from Aurora, CO. Here are the details:
2014 2.0XT Touring
MSRP $34,859 (Including Destination $825)
Edmunds.com True Market Value $32,251
Truecar.com Lowest Price Paid $31,193
I paid $30,500 + $499 (Dealer Fee) Total $30,999 (before taxes and registration)
2011 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4X4 29K Miles trade in $28,000 (I paid $34,000 new 3 years ago)
For those of you thinking about flying out to CO (Subaru's #1 selling state):
Heuberger Subaru in Colorado Springs, CO is the nations #1 selling dealer
Shortline Subaru in Aurora, CO (Denver Metro) is nations #2 selling dealer
Email or call the internet department people and they can quote you the invoice price minus the discount depending on the model and trim.
(Heuberger Subaru has a Silver XT Premium coming in sometime in July)
(Mike Shaw Subaru in Thornton, CO has a Red XT Premium in stock as of today)
Last side note: if you shopping for a CUV I would highly recommend to look at BMW X1 xDrive 28i starting at $32k
#3546 of 3629 2014 Forester Limited price paid
Jun 24, 2013 (5:36 pm)
I gained a lot from this board so it is my turn to share my experience. Began shopping for a 2014 Forester in April 2013, could not find many in stock and found no dealer in Michigan, northern Ohio or northern IN willing to sell for at or even near invoice.
I contacted Grand Subaru in the greater Chicago area and here is what I got:
2014 Forester Limited
Dark Gray / Gray Interior
AUTO-DIM MIRROR W/COMPASS AND HOMELINK
SPLASH GUARD KIT
LUGGAGE COMPARTMENT COVER (POWER REAR GATE)
BODY SIDE MOLDING KIT - DARK GRAY METALLIC
REAR BUMPER COVER
FLOOR MATS| ALL WEATH
Your Selling Price: $26,389
The experience was very easy, no haggling at all, gave best price up front via email. Great buying experience, and easily $2k lower than any price I could find elsewhere.
Good luck in your search.
Just made the drive back to Grand Rapids from Chicago in the Forester and I must say that it is even better than I recall during the test drives. Very happy.
