#1922 of 3393 2009 Outback Special Edition $21,750
Aug 11, 2009 (8:29 pm)
We bought our 2009 Outback Special Edition with iPod connection for $21,750 from Subaru Puente Hills in Industry Hills, California. This includes the $2000 dealer incentive from Subaru. We bought on July 24, 2009.
The next day we went on a trip from Southern California to Lake Tahoe. Only flaws were the driver's side weather stripping was installed poorly, cold start is rough, and the iPod controls on the dash are not iPod intuitive.
Combined MPG averaged 26 Highway + City and the air conditioning on. The dealer said they'll replace the weather stripping. Very nice dealer.
Thanks to all who have posted! Helped with the negotiations.

Man, it's a jungle out there. Shopped hard the last 2 weeks to find a basic Outback 2.5i or lower trim level Premium version. Dealers at Gwinnett Place offerred Edmunds value for my 2008 low miles trade but wanted MSRP for a "stripper" 2.5i with manual. Give me a break!
Other dealers are out of everything but white or dark gray/black cars. Lots of comments about how hot the Outback is right now, they're talking about cancelling the Tribeca cause the Outback is selling so well, yadda, yadda. A month ago just before CARS hit, I was offered around $400 over invoice for a new Outback (plus options) but they complained about meeting Edmunds trade value because "the used car market was so bad". I know I'm giving the dealer a $3,000 total deal where they already had a buyer for the trade and they still want more. Time to put my new car lust back in the holster and wait until the $2 billion from CARS works it's way out of the system. Be careful out there folks.

Well, at least those people bought a much more fuel efficient car than they would have otherwise.

Just quoted 33965 for a 2010 3.6R Limited with bumper cover, dimmer, and splash. The only one with nav in new england. MSRP is 35093. How have others done for this rare car?

I've seen others near MSRP so right now that's probably not a bad price.
Still, if you can wait for C4C to end...

I'd say about 15% less than a new one would cost.

Good informative post. Did you order or buy off inventory?

This vehicle was in the dealership's inventory. They had two 3.6R Limited's on lot and a large number of the 4-cylinder versions.
