#717 of 933 08 Impreza 5 Door 2.5i Automatic
May 14, 2009 (9:25 am)
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.

I too would be interested in finding out where you got that deal. Was it the 08 Sport from Ocean Subaru? It was sold when I called. If I could find a 2.5i auto wagon for under 17,000 or a Auto Sport for under 17,600 I would buy it today.
The dealers around me are still holding firm at $17,500 for the auto wagon.
Will next month bring better incentives to match some of the other current markets?
