Yogi, you didn't specify sedan or wagon, and there's about a $1k price difference between the two. Also, not sure if you also mean including tax. But either way, an '06 Limited for 20k? I don't think so. Invoice for wagon is $25,300 ($27k MSRP), invoice for sedan is $24,200 ($26k MSRP), both with destination. Take the $1500 rebate (may vary depending on where you live) off of the invoice, and you're at $23,800 for the wagon or $22,700 for the sedan. There's no way a Subaru dealer has $3k to $4k in factory-to-dealer incentives to throw in. I'd think your best possible deal would be about $22,500 wagon or $21,500 sedan - before taxes.
If you're shooting for $20k, I'd say go for the Special Edition instead. No leather, but it comes with plenty of goodies and a bigger $2000 rebate. We just purchased an Atlantic Blue Pearl Legacy SE sedan for $18,900 (about $3500 below invoice) from Carter Subaru in Seattle. Comes with AC, power everything, CD, moonroof, power driver's seat, etc. We added subwoofer/amp and all-weather mats.
Happy hunting and good luck!

jskjo - Subaru pricing in Canada is pretty steep, way beyond just the currency exchange rate. This site below has great info regarding importing a Subaru from the US to Canada (from Seattle, so not far to Vancouver). Can save you thousands if you're willing to do a little paperwork. Doesn't sound too complicated.
Also, due to NAFTA, there's no duty to pay on vehicles built in the US or Mexico. Legacy, Outback and Tribeca are all built in the U.S.

Thanks for the info jeffmc.
Warranty is a big concern though. From the website, it indicates that all warranty services must be done by dealer in the US...
I still remember the exchange rate was ~0.6 only 4 years ago... and now it is >0.9. People were importing cars from Canada back then. The tide has changed.

Hopefully your friend wouldn't need to use the warranty often, if at all, but it would be an inconvenience to have to drive a couple hours for warranty work.
My wife and I used to vacation in B.C. because it was a good deal. Now it's slightly more expensive than travelling in the States, I think, but we like it so much we still travel there regularly.

This is the deal we got for a 2006 2.5i SE auto in Vancouver, BC.
Negotiated price C$29357
All these numbers include C$1495 freight and PDI as well as C$100 A/C excise tax.
Can probably get another C$200 lower but it is hard to negotiate price in Canada.
I know, you can easily get this car for $20k in the US but warranty and trade in makes this option unfavorable.
Also the SE package costs C$699 in Canada but only $300 in the US.
Got very good price on the trade-in though.
#350 of 1005 2006 Legacy Sedan Ltd
Jul 02, 2006 (5:36 pm)
Just purchased an 06 Subaru Legacy Sedan Ltd.
- Rear Spoiler
- Auto Dim mirror with homelink and compass
- Armrest extension - off black
Price paid: $21,798 + TTL
dealer document fees - $79
Got the 2.9% APR for 36 months.
I think this is a pretty decent deal for such a wonderful car. I hope this will last for a loooong time without too many problems.
#351 of 1005 congratulations

Congrats to raven and jskho! These really are wonderful cars. My '06 SE sedan feels like I'm driving something much more expensive, and feels about 10 years more advanced than my '04 Outback, which I like very much.
Check out the "Subaru Crew Cafe - Meet the Members II" forum, where Subaru owners can introduce themselves to each other.

What do people think about the Passat? What's the best deal one can expect to pay?
