#785 of 932 Invoices from Edmunds, KBB, and TrueCar do not match
Nov 22, 2009 (8:42 am)
Has anyone else had this experience, and found a solution to the problem? I am quite confused: the invoices as found on TrueCar, Edmunds, and KBB do not match, and by quite a bit. To make sure I was making the right comparison, I prized the 2010 Subaru Impreza, manual, 5 door (Hatchback), PREMIUM, with NO additional packages or options: the invoices still do not match: 19,040 (TrueCar); $18,354 (Edmunds); 18,818 (KBB) (these are all invoice prices that include the $695 delivery charge). Everywhere on the internet you find articles on how important (and possible) is to find the dealer's invoice, as a base for negotiation. You also read that the dealer's and your invoice must match exactly. Yet, the discrepancies between these three website - which are the three main ones - are so glaring to make these tools, at least for this car, useless. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Anyone had any experience at Mid City Subaru of Chicago (Irving Park Road)?
I am also interested to know what experiences people have had with having after-market stuff installed there?
I appreciate any input, thank you.

The experience I've had with Mid City was awful. Nearly every car dealer stereotype was played out.
If the dealership is convenient to you, and you know exactly what you are willing to pay before you go there, take a calculator to double check the figures, and let us know your evaluation of Mid City.
Their Better Business Bureau rating is A+ for what it's worth.

You probably already have your car, since I'm just reading your post on 3/4/10.
Consumer Reports says the "invoice price" today is more of a marketing tool than anything.
CR says the most important factor is DEALER COST, and the INVOICE is NOT it!
I'm not sure what the percentage of MSRP represents actual dealer cost, but I'd be surprised if it were much more than 82-83%.

A dealer has a 2009 Impreza GT that I am interested in with an MSRP of 28.2K.
Does anybody have any idea of what to pay for this car, or if there are any rebates available? I couldn't find any incentives for the 2009's, if they even exist now.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Use fitzmall.com as a price reference, if you're in the MidAtlantic region.
I think Van Bortel is another no-haggle dealer, they're in the NY area.
#792 of 932 Impreza Lease

Just leased a 2010 Impreza 2.5 premium sedan (MSRP 19,200 or so) for 235/mo including tax (7.75% for cleveland) and with all fees and first months payment rolled into the price of the car. Pretty happy with the deal I got - a little out of my comfort zone monthly payment wise (wanted closer to 200) but for a car like the Impreza, I'm happy with the price.

Congrats. The Premium package is a deal, too.

Is $16,900 + tax/service fee a good price for a new 2010 Impreza 2.5i 5 door, automatic in the Midwest? The dealership is offering 1.9% for 36 months or less or 3.9% for 60 mo. Wondering if I should try to negotiate anything...
This discount is because the 2011 are out. Does that mean I should buy now? I can wait till early August but don't want to miss out on any good leads.
