That's a reasonable price, but you could probably do better. I'll summarize earlier posts regarding a good strategy for Subaru shopping:
Go to www.fitzmall.com and find out what price they have on your car. These prices are very competitive, and give you a good target. If you are talking about a 2009 2.5i impreza sedan, the fitzmall price right now is $16650-16970 + tax/ttl.
Also check out cars101.com and look at the incentives. Right now, the 2.5i (sedan) has a "hidden" (dealer cash) incentive of $1000 that some dealers won't tell you about (and some will even deny that it exists).
Invoice on the 2.5i sedan with your options is $18,650, so anything below $17,650 + tax/ttl is a decent price. However, do not let them add any dealer fees, and make them sweat it out for a week to try to get closer to the fitzmall price.

I am shopping for a new Subaru, and I ran across the following deal.
This particular dealer has two new 2008 Impreza base models with no optional equipment. The sedan is offered for $14,495 (MSRP $18,640) and the 5 door is $500 more at $14,995 (MSRP $19,140). They have one of each and they are both the color I like. Last weekend they had another identical hatchback, but it sold earlier in the week. The sedan has about 400 miles from test drives and the hatchback has just over 600 miles.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking at this car and would appreciate anyone who has recently bought one and what the base price they paid was? I've done some research but would really like to hear some feedback.

Was this an automatic or manual model?

I think MT = Manual, but not 100% sure.

That is probably $1500-$2000 less than you would have paid last summer for the '08s...
Not a bad deal, if you are happy with the base model... Hard to find that much car for $15K..

OTOH it should be fairly easy to get a brand new '09 for only $1000 more, which will not have the automatic "instant depreciation" of being one model year old when you buy it, and will not have the 400-600 miles on the clock already.

I am shopping around for the Impreza Outback Sport AT recently, and the best offer I got is around $18900 + tax + ttl. Is it a good deal?

That's a pretty good price. I recently purchased the manual transmission Impreza Outback Sport in New England (MSRP 20,690). Since my deal included a trade, it's harder to make a direct comparison but here are my numbers:
Paid $14,050 + tax/ttl = $14,800 OTD (including trade)
Traded a 1999 4Dr MT VW Golf (only 61K miles on it) with a Kelly BB value of $3000-3500.
I worked very hard for that deal, but it was worth it.

WOW, you got a really good price since the auto transmission is about $1000 more than the manual ,and it looks like you are paying little on the documentation fee and title etc. Could you please tell me the dealer information? Thanks.
