#538 of 1005 2008 Legacy 2.5i limited w/vdc
Dec 12, 2007 (12:27 am)
Got a price quote for 2008 Subaru Legacy LTD AWD w/VDC for $22,390 with little extra option which includes all-weather floor mats, auto-dim rear view mirror/compass, and the factory color keyed slash guards.
Is this good price for the car? Seems the price is pretty good. Checked out edmunds.com and it was under invoice. I think this price is with the rebate they are offering. He didnt mention that on the email.
If he can give me the car for $22,390 OTD (tax included) I'd buy the car if not I might have to think about it. You guy think the dealer will go for my offer? I live in Chicago and tax is 8.75%
This is my first Subaru and im not sure if its expensive to maintain the car or to get the car fixed. I have Maxima right now and its pretty inexpensive to maintain the car and it doesnt leave a hole in my pocket when I get my car fixed. I was talking to my mechanic and he said Legacy is little bit more expensive to fix then Maxima. Can you guy post or email me with some of you thought about this. isaididontcarehotmail.com Thank you.

Yes, that price is very, very good. You may be able to get $100-$200 more off (maybe not), but there's no way they can drop another $2000 to include any taxes & fees at that price.
Subarus are very reliable (Consumer Reports rates them at #2, behind Honda only), so I think you're less likely to come across unexpected repairs. Maintenance isn't pricey like European brands, but if I had to guess, I'd say your mechanic is probably right that Legacy would be a little more than a Maxima - probably not much, though.

That's about $1,000 less than the best price I can find here in NY. And that's excluding sales tax. I'd grab it.

I am considering the purchase of an 08 legacy Limited with VDC that has an MSRP of $25,794. I was told that I could buy the car at invoice, which allegedly was $24,272, minus the $1,000 rebate which brings the cost to $23,272. Sounds like you and I have a similar deal on a similarly priced car.

I ended up buying a 2008 Legacy Limited w/ vdc (see post # 535) for $21,500 + $254 doc. fee + 7% RI sales tax. This price includes the $1,000 rebate. I purchased the car from Patrick Subaru in Shrewsbury, MA.

I wonder if that $254 is the fee paid to Subaru of New England rather than a documentary fee...? That's a great price. Way to go & congrats!
#544 of 1005 Buying a rental 07 Outback
Dec 16, 2007 (10:52 am)
Hello, I'm in the process of purchasing an off-rental 07 Outback 2.5i. There are a lot of them actually offered in the Denver metro area. Mileage ranges from 10K-25K. Prices range from 18.9K to 23K. What's the price I should offer at the dealer? Is 17.2K a good starting price?
Also, does anybody know where I can get Added Security at invoice price?

Im planning on doing a 5 year finance on my car. They told me if im tier 1 then Id get a rate of 5.9%. Is there anyway i can get that lowered? I know they are offering 2.9% for 2 years. Im asking this because when my friends bought a car from Nissan, they first offered him 6.9% then when he tried to walk out they made a deal. They told him if he buys the warranty plan then they'll lower his rate down to 2.9%. So they took the rate and got his car. Will Subaru lower their rate if I buy the warranty or is there another way of going around it without buying the warranty.
I got a email from 1 dealership about 0% financing for just 1 week. It didnt say exactly which car they were offering that to. I know Outback has 0% financing for 2 years. Im planning on going to that dealership and see if thats true for the Legacy.

Do you guys think getting the warranty is worth it? Can someone tell me some of the warranty plans they offer? I know theres couple different plans and Im not sure what those are. Im also thinking about getting the undercarrage protection and paint protection. Not sure how much those go for either. Thank you

undercarriage protection, paint etc is totally worthless
extended warranties may be worth it. I got my money back on my 98 legacy GT (a/c almost completely replaced, oil leak fixed and they thew in the timing belt for free , 2 power antennas), jury still out on my 02 WRX - new struts and ball joint; and it was really worth it on a Windstar and Venture- trannies (x2 on the Windstar!) , engine gaskets and a bunch of other stuff! On a Subaru its more of a gamble but if you plan on keeping it a long time and are OCD about stuff going wrong its probably worth it.
just don't pay list price!
