Here is a little secret on how they make money. I have talked to my friend who works at Subaru (Midwest Region will not specify a dealership). He said most dealers should be happy if they make $450 on a new car, and this month they have some secret dealers incentives. Actually this is offered most of the time but bigger dealers see bigger incentives especially if they sell over certain amount of vehicles.
I will give you a example: Subaru Outback Premium CVT. This is for Nov 2009 not sure what next month will bring.
Base MSRP $24,295
CVT (+) $1,000
Destination (+) $695
Total (MSRP) $25,990
Destination (+) $695
CVT (+) $950
Holdback (-) $729
Dealers Secret Incentives Nov 09 (-) $500
Dealers Cost this Month $23,327
Dealers will take profit of $450
They can sell you the car for $23,777
This should help some people that are in the process of buying a car. You all can use a lot of online help to determent a good deal.
#2155 of 3458 Out of State purchase
Nov 17, 2009 (9:56 am)
Has anyone got experience of purchasing out of State?
I'm in NJ and understand how to calculate the fees and taxes when I register a vehicle here, but I wondered how you find out the true costs when you purchase in PA, NY or CT.
I would assume you pay associated fees for a title and then need a Temp or Out of State sticker, to drive it back to NJ.
Clues or links anyone, I'm planning visit with DMV later this week to ask there.

The out of state dealer can help you with all your questions. They sell across state lines all the time.

Recently came across a dealer here in CT who is offering 10% off MSRP not including destination to do a factory order Outback. Seems like a pretty decent deal if you can wait for the car. Any thoughts?

Hmm, I just got an offer for 9% off MSRP (including destination) from a dealership in CT. Does your dealership have a name like a big SUV?

So we can say its not a one off offer and things may be warming up for the end of the month. Good news.

Bought our Outback ten days ago from Rafferty Subaru in Newtown Square PA at invoice. Worked with Steve- all around a good experience. Most of the other dealers have little inventory and most had higher prices. One was slightly lower but I wasn't comfortable with them.
Really enjoy the Outback but I'm already looking for how to get the ride height to that of the Legacy, whether its springs, struts or both.

Exactly..! Stoopy's e-mail instant/"10 quick quotes requests" idea never worked for me either...still waiting for their response..:-/
Had to find my self "reputable" dealers and contact directly their sales/"Internet Managers". Also a lot of them "internet managers" do not like to give numbers via phone or "e-mails"...:-/. Cause they like to play their games/lies at the dealer (easier for them to BS you). Only the one I contacted personally before i started this CarSpace posting (last week) was a little straight with me & did not ask me "to come down to their stupid dealer & waste my time and show, sign papers. To me all this basterds do not want to come down really much with their prices, so that the payments are low or at least reasonable for their customers( they even try their "price lies" with me it didn't matter that I have good credit..:-/). Even when you come down to their dealers the "actual e-mail" numbers change a lots of times.
Sorry Sweetsoul i really do not want to ruin your party but TO ME..; If you really research online the same car with your options (they are not really expensive options) I still think you didn't get such a good deal. I'm sorry but i'm just been honest. Not bad deal but just Ok for me. I think they could have done better for you and even me cause i call them(Rafferty) & he tried to justified the 2.5 limited no options for $30,000..! I'm getting a little tired of this & right now considering just to re-lease another(we do like it and enjoy the long trips on it. It's very comfortable) pathfinder(2010) cause even though the price it's higher than the "outback" (~33,000) the lease payments(nissan credit offered same low payments we have now ) are much lower than the smaller Outback. Oh and they offer to waive the last 3 lease payments on my present Pathfinder cause of their "loyal customer offer".

Easy dude -- your're going to bust a blood vessel --no car purchase is worth that kind of rage. If you like the nissan you may be happy with another. Nice discounts on the 09's and 2010's. I personally like them a lot. If you don't put lots of miles on per year -- the mpg difference causes minimal damage. Lots of room -- nice ride. The subaru guys are basking in the glory of a great car line and increased sales. Once the dust settles things may improve some. Nissan wants you back -- subaru could care less. The decision is yours.
