#318 of 1010 Just buy brand new

Try Becker Subaru in Allentown, PA. I don't know how they can sell their vehicles so cheaply. I recently purchased a 2006 Legacy 2.5SE SDN 5 speed manual for $19,100. They advertise in the Allentown Morning Call paper with prices changing weekly. Last week prices were:
Forester X manual $17,999
Legacy 2.5SE SDN manual $19,600
Outback 2.5 manual $21,500
The first dealer I visited (closests to my home)wanted to sell me an '06 Legacy with 5000 miles for $500 off sticker. What a joke! I drove down to Becker and took delivery the same day.
Excellent dealer to do business with. If calling or emailing, reference the Ad in the Morning Call.
PS: If going with the 5 speed, I STRONGLY suggest the Momo short throw shifter availble through the dealer. It gives the car a much better, more sporty driving feel. It make shifting fun, rhather than a chore with the OEM gear shift.

Curry Subaru in New York (Yorktown Heights) has been advertising on the radio lately about the 2006 wind-damage deals.
About those 2005 Outbacks, it is true that there are a bunch of 2005 Outbacks out there that were previously Hertz Rentals (& possibly other rental agencies.) I found this out by telephone calls.

I'm pretty sure that most of the 2005's are Hertz cars. They seem to be in very good shape mechanically with a few dings, bumper scratches and the interiors need cleaning.
#322 of 1010 Legacy GT sedan...where to hit them?
May 22, 2006 (10:10 am)
I'm in NC and looking to buy a Legacy 2.5GT Limited (5M) sedan, and wondering what I should look for as a good price.
I'm sure it makes a difference that it would most likely involve a dealer trade, but how much of a difference should I figure? And how do I figure the "cost" of the options when it is a dealer trade (i.e. is invoice still really invoice here)?
Finally, I know that the true...i.e. post-rebate...base invoice is $25,9ish, and with the options on most of the stock around here $26,6ish... but are there incentives to the dealer that might be cutting into the cost even more (yes, I know about holdback, but beyond that)?
I think my first number would be $27... curious to know if you think I should legitimately be able to do better.

Been to several CT dealers and not a pleasant experience. A big difference from 1993 when I bought my 25th Anniversary Edition Legacy. Recent quote is $20,800 out the door. Includes $2500 May rebate.
$95 transfer fee
$299 conveyance fee (I don't think so!)
I too have noticed a lot of special offers on wind damaged and special direct factory vehicles in NY with attractive prices. Makes me want to head for the border.
#324 of 1010 Deal or No Deal? Part Deux

Forgot to add the price quoted is for an 06 SE Sedan(can't afford my dream Limited) and includes one year free oil changes and $1000 trade on my 93 with 164,000 miles.

Compare with fitzmall.com, though keep in mind we're Mid-Atlantic and you're probably under SoNE's umbrella, where some fees are a tad higher.
Ballpark price sounds right, though, what tranny is that?

That rebate could go away this month, your choice. I think you may be able to do a little better.
