#2258 of 3393 2009 Subaru Outback 2.5i 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl 4A)
Dec 03, 2009 (3:30 pm)
I found one new 2009 still in stock somewhat near us and see that there's still a $2000 rebate available.
On the dealer's web site, they are listing the price at $22,833 (don't know if that includes the rebate or not).
Since this is the last new one I've found in my area (it's about 50 or so miles away), anyone know the best deal to offer for this?
#2259 of 3393 Financing & delivery
Dec 03, 2009 (6:15 pm)
We ordered a OB Ltd w Nav the last week of Oct & got word is is built & should be arrive about the 17th of Dec. - Yes despite reading about muddy sound & steering wheel shake, we are getting excited.
The dealer apparently forgot to order the trailer hitch, but owned up to it right away & will install it for the factory VIP price later.
The 3.9% financing deal has been renewed - pleasant surprise. Accord to cars101.com, the OB orders were up 141% for Nov. No sign of the marked cooling this highly desired car yet.
Interestingly we found it much easier to sell our 03 Forester than our O4 Audi A4. This despite the fact that the price was almost the same & the Audi cost about $8K more new. Gotta hand it to Subaru!

They mark the VIN on various parts of the vehicle, so it's not as attractive to thieves who could part it out and sell those parts on E-bay.

I've observed the same thing. Even with a manual transmission, which turns a lot of buyers away, I had no trouble at all privately selling a 98 Forester and an 02 Legacy. Both times I got more than expected, and the Forester actually sold to the first person who test drove it.
My price may have been too low!

I am the market for a new car, considering a '10 OB Ltd and '10 XC70 T6. I tried working with Annapolis Subaru & Volvo, owned by the same group. Both experiences were very poor, filled with slick characters and shady behavior. Beware.

Test drove the same kind of car T6, loved the appearance inside and out, didn't like the way the T6 drove & went for the much cheaper OB 3.6R limited. You just described the typical car salesman / dealership (but thankfully not them all) when will they learn? Its not the dark ages of information and choice any longer.
Try another dealership.

I bought my '09 OB Ltd in July from Stohlman in Tysons Corner VA ... very easy transaction at a very fair price, no hassles.

If you want no-haggle, no-hassle, try Fitzgerald Subaru in Rockville, MD.
My dad, sister, brother, and wife have bought cars there. Wifey bought 2, actually.
Shop fitzmall.com, the prices include freight, add a $99 fee and that's it. Very, very refreshing.
I kept waiting for "the catch" and it never came.
#2266 of 3393 Is it a good price to buy? (2010 Outback 2.5i Premium)
Dec 05, 2009 (9:44 pm)
2.5i Premium + all weather/MoonRoof packages + some options
The price I got: $25,626 + taxes and fees
Is it good enough to buy?

$500 under invoice is a very good price. But its not OTD - lookout for high dealer fees, and the packs in the F&I ofc like extended warranty, maintenance plan, glass etching, paint and fabric protection, alarms - the list is endless.
