Hi there im looking at a 2012 Legacy with the all weather package for $21,000, is this a fair deal. Vballplayer 30-you mentioned you purchased a 2013 with the same package for a lil over 22k, how much was it and where?

I negotiated the 2013 Legacy premium with the all weather package for 22,400$...The car also had the dimming/compass mirror, all weather floor mats and cargo net, which they claim were additional extras, but I refused to pay extra...they are such scammers. There was a 296$ fee at the end, which I'm thinking was a bs doc fee, but I didn't feel like arguing anymore...live and learn! All and all, it was still a good deal getting it under invoice price even with the fee...again unsure if it was legit. Bought it at Subaru dealer in Hicksville, NY...hop
e this helps

MY TIPS FOR BUYING YOUR NEW CAR
ok, just negotiated and bought the car for my parents today so everything is fresh
1) Look around for the car/s you want, but don't buy that day...ideally search 1-2 wks before the end of the month. If you like a specific car on that lot, find out what extras are on that car and what extras you do or do not want. When negotiating later, they can't take off the moon roof, nav, etc. They can order the car, but it could take 8 wks. You may have to buy the car with the extras if you don't want to wait, so consider all this before hand.
2) Search for prices paid in edmunds forums and the new car section to get an idea of the lowest price. Also search kelly blue book and truecar.com. Don't forget to add in ALL the extras that they say the car has...again, you may have to buy the car with the extras or wait wks for a factory ordered car. They will prob make you a better deal on the car on the lot.
3) Figure out your grand total...ie price of the car you want to spend with all extras (nav, moonroof, whatever), plus taxes, and other LEGIT fees associated with the car...look up online for legit and whats typical in your area. They got us for a 296$ fee...unsuer if it was legit, but after 4 hrs...didn't want to negotiate anymore...this is 1 of there clever/slimy tricks!!
4) Armed with all your price info., go to the dealer on the LAST DAY OR 2 of the month. (They are trying to reach their quotas so you will have your best luck in getting the lowest price!)
Don't waste time with the salesman...they will try to crunch numbers with you and go over other bs...the mgr makes the final decisions, so immediately ask the sales rep to get the mgr because "you're ready to buy".
5) Once he gets there, tell him you did all your research and have narrowed your search down to his car and 1-2 others. Here is my "OUT THE DOOR PRICE" with taxes, fees, etc. Tell him you will not waste anytime discussing, bartering, or negotiating and STICK TO IT!!! "Here's my price...you've got 2 minutes to decide!" If he says, "he can't go below invoice...he runs back to his office with various printouts saying look at what this and that costs...says, but I'm giving you the floor mats and cargo nets, I have to make something, etc, etc, etc, etc...(he would not stop)" Then say, "thanks anyway, I'm gonna go buy that new lexus!"
If you did your homework and priced the car well (the forums from here are prob the most helpful and def the most accurate), you should get the deal without the headache of sitting there for 4 hrs like we did! DON"T be afraid to walk out, and be prepared to do so if ANYTHING is not what you wanted. Any additional fees or waste of your time then leave. The moment we got up to actually leave, he said give me a price and was ready to sign off...and did!!! Remember, it's the end of the month and they need to reach their quota!
On a side note, we were paying cash, but agreed to finance as this made him some extra cash. It didn't effect us because we are paying it off in 3 payents in the first 37 days so there is no finance charge for us (of course we got that in writing as should you). You could possibly do this with your deal as they make money and as long as you pay it off, it won't cost you anything, but provides additional bargaining power... Hope all this helps!

"Hey Blin, what was your final price and did it include taxes and fees?"by vballplayer
Sale price was $22,074 before tax.+ tax (7.75%) +$250 doc fee + $78.25 title & registration. Total: ~$24,113. MSRP: $24,196. Brunswick Subaru, OH.
It has Option Package 2/All-Weather Package, two sets of mats, home link/auto-dim mirror, plastic cargo tray in the trunk. I think that tray is a little more useful and practical than cargo net.

Hi thank you so much for your reply,
I just signed for a new 2013 Legacy Premium w/ option 2/All-wether package w/ moonroof-sale price was $22,200(they were asking $25,800), total price with tax & fees were $23, 817.
My parents signed for a 2012 Legacy Premium w/all weather package for total of $21,200(asking price $24,850), total w/tax and fees $22,725.
Negotiate, negotiate, don't let them sell you on extras, and if you can wait, wait for the end of a quarter when they can and will budge for the extra sale.
Hope this helps. =)

2012 Legacy Premium for $21,200!!! You did it great!
I couldn't find any Legacy Premium near Cleveland, OH in August. All gone. A few Limited's were available. Moonfoof is a cool option but I'm fine not having it. Waiting for snow to test AWD! Enjoy!

Thanks, the 2012 came w/the all weather package option 2 and a spoiler. The salesman were great, no hassle, no pressure...Balise in Warwick, RI was a great place-definetly a place to refer!!!

Sounds like you guys negotiated a great deal! Just spoke with my mother...she wanted me to ask you if you feel like it's a "hard/rough" ride? She tells me she feels every bump in the road.

Hmm, make sure she airs down the tires. They often come pumped up to prevent flat-spotting.
Legacy is one of the better riding cars in the class.
