#840 of 1005 Just got a 2.5 Legacy Premium...
Dec 13, 2010 (8:16 pm)
Wanted to share the buying experience with SUbaru of Plano, TX. They were very cool and low pressure - a quite pleasant experience overall; I worked with Mark and Gary.
I got a 2011 2.5 Legacy Premium, with:
All-Weather package (Heated Front Seats,Windshield Wiper De-Icer, Heated Side Mirrors)
Subwoofer Kit, Tweeter Kit, Media Hub, BlueTooth Connect Kit
All weather Floor Mats
Trunk Lip Spoiler
XM Satellite Radio
I paid $23,422 + TTL. This was a model on the showroom floor so they drove it out fo us. No wear, very clean, 34 miles on odo (so not a demo). I think I did good.
I used Edmunds many times to get great info I figure I'd give something back!

Congrats. Cold enough now to enjoy those heated seats? I love the ones in my wife's Forester.

Not that cold just yet... and seeing that we live in Texas (DFW) I expect that this will be casually used. But I also figure that once my wife really starts using the heat, it will be on for her often.
#843 of 1005 10 Best - Quietest cars at 70mph

Funny observation - in C&D's annual 10Best list, a Legacy 2.5i CVT was listed as the quietest car they tested in all of 2010, ahead of dozens of luxury cars.

I've noticed the same thing yesterday.
I knew my new Legacy was quiet... I never realized it was that quiet

WHAT? I can't hear you. You're inside your Legacy and the windows are closed, the insulation is too good.
#846 of 1005 New Outback
Jan 24, 2011 (9:53 am)
Helped my folks with a new 2011 2.5i Outback Premium (cvt) w/All Weather.
$500 below invoice + TTL
1.5 % finance 36 months
I was surprised to see these numbers. But I had 3 other offers at $1000 below, $500 below and $200 below invoice, so there must be some dealer incentive going on even though I did not see this advertised.
The $1K below wanted $500 locate fee and $400 doc fees. The other dealers had no locate fee up to 200 miles and $200 doc fees.
We bought it at the dealer we will be servicing it as well.
#847 of 1005 Used 2008 Legacy 2.5 GT
Feb 04, 2011 (11:14 am)
I just bought a used 2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT with ~36,500 miles on it and one previous owner.
I found the car through autotrader at a dealership in Chicago Wilkins Hyundai and Mazda. Originally the dealer wanted 19,991$ (not including tax which would be 6% in MI since I am from Michigan), my friend and I were able to get him down to 18,775$.
The specs on the car I bought are the following:
- Popular group 2 config, which I think included the auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, heated driver and passenger seats.
- Windshield wiper de-icer and heated side view mirrors
- Extra speakers and subwoofer under the driver seat
- Power moonroof
- All weather floormats
- XM satellite radio
- Trunk spoiler
- 5 speed manual transmission with momo sport shift knob
I wasn't sure what else was an extra on this car, essentially I just got lost in all of the buttons and features this car has.
An interesting circumstance though was that I bought it last weekend and was pretty much in the perfect position to test it during the "snowpocalypse" which was a huge snowstorm covering 3/4 of the US Feb 3-Feb 4th 2011. Coming from a rear-wheel drive car, the Subaru needless to say exceeded my expectations, while my neighbors were stuck in their parking spots next to me I put the Legacy into reverse without shoveling any snow out and drove through the snow drift behind me and proceeded to plow a channel out to the main road. I will of course refrain from driving in deep snow on a regular basis but I could not resist the opportunity to see for myself why my friend who introduced me to Subaru in the first place was going on about.
Anyway though the car isn't perfect, there are a few things I noticed although it could just be me getting used to the car as well and iron out in the future.
- Rear driver side passenger door lock froze shut, so I could not unlock it manually or with the key fob. Eventually after driving around a bit it thawed out.
- Slight rattling noise from I believe the glovebox
- I find it sometimes a bit hard to get into reverse gear; but perhaps this will work out once I get more familiar with the car.
- The interior trim near the gearshift seems to be a little loose as I can press on it and it will move up and down.
- The frameless windows of the 2008 model make for more wind noise
Otherwise I was glad to confirm that all of the electrics I checked at the dealership were indeed continuing to work.
#848 of 1005 2011 Legacy 2.5i Premium
Mar 08, 2011 (6:57 pm)
I recently got a Ruby Red Pearl 2011 Legacy 2.5i Premium from Glanzmann Subaru in Jenkintown, PA and I think that I got a half decent deal. My car is equipped with:
All Weather Package
Auto-Dimming Mirror w/ Compass
Media Hub (dealer installed before delivery)
Remote Start (dealer installed before delivery)
I negotiated down to $23,500 including installation of the 2 options (media hub & remote start), and then I had the $250 Subaru coupon from the Philly Auto Show. So I got my car for $23,250 plus TTL. The car had 17 miles on the odometer when I took delivery.
