#685 of 938 Buy 08 in 09 - 2008 Base Impreza MT
Mar 24, 2009 (8:46 am)
$14,900 before tax and title!
There are a few 08 Subaru models left out there.
I searched extensively for an Impreza after realizing I would be paying close to the same amount for a Honda Fit Sport MT or a Corolla S, and be getting half the car. After utilizing Subaru's dealer search and the inventory on each site I realized that purchasing an 08' model would get me the lowest price, it being 3 months into 2009.
Almost considered a 09' Base Forester MT, but couldn't get a dealer to get to $18,000-19,000 OTD. I did find willing dealers who wanted to move Base Forester MT models for $20,000 OTD.
That being said, it was a lot of work but has left me satisfied with a car that provides me with the most value for my dollar.

Great deal. CR had a lot to say about base Imprezas being a good value.
I bought a left over 2008 Miata and got a similarly good deal. About $4 grand less than 09s.

What is the going price on a 09 WRX? I have been reading a lot of reviews (mostly positive) and this one is suppose to bring the WRX back to what it should be. Not being mushy and soft like the 08 WRX. I am debating between this or a Honda Civic SI, though leaning towards this if I can get it in price range. Much thanks in advance for the help.

I'm wondering the same thing. If anyone has deals out there, post them for the 09 WRX, please!

When I was --><-- close to buying one they said invoice without blinking. The 09 WRX is far more car than the Civic Si. that's like comparing a bobcat to a mountain lion.

The question is too general. Are you talking about the base WRX? The WRX with the Premium Package? The WRX with the Premium Package and navigation?

I'm on Subaru's site and can't seem to figure out what the $3000 gives you other than a 10 speaker system and heated seats. What else is added for the premium package? If that's it, I personally would not need the premium package. I wouldn't need the Nav for sure.

The premium will also add the sunroof. Evidently, after market sunroofs in the WRX are tough because of the roll cage or something like that. I'm with you though, the $3k for the premium doesn't really do it for me.
And in St. Louis, you can get easily get a WRX for invoice (if you can find one), possibly a few hundred under. I've seen dealers in Colorado doing the base WRX for over $1k under invoice. I haven't yet bought one, this information is without any negotiating, just what they're telling me.

FWIW, I went out today to test drive one. They only had a WRX Premium version on the lot so made due with that. The drive was all I expected, responsive, crisp, etc. I did read some reviews from C&D and found what they said to be true.
The sales guy told me that he expects sales on this car to take off because it will be featured in the upcoming Fast and Furious movie. IMHO, this was just sales garbage coming out of his mouth. To me most people who buy a WRX, do it because they know what it is and is capable of; not because it was featured in a movie.
Hopefully I'll start negotiating on this car in the next few weeks and will post what I can come up with it.
