I just got back from Test driving a 2011 outback today at the dealer. I was then shown a 2010 2.5i Premium that had been used as a loaner vehicle. This 2010 outback has 2,300 miles on it, includes the weather/ climate package, no moon roof. Saleman tried to sell it to me for $24,900, I offered him $23,000 out the door price with all fee/ taxes included. They countered with $24,300 out the door with all taxes and fees, I walked out. Is $23,000 a good price for this Outback? Again it has the 6speed automatic, heated seats , power driver seat.Thanks for any input. Waiting on dealer to call me...Forgot to mention, this includes a 6 year / 100,000 mile powertrain warranty, plus free inspections and loaner car for life of vehicle..

I doubt very much that he will call you back. Look at the TMV price for that vehicle. He offering to sell you that vehicle at well under TMV price for a Certified Pre-owned Outback. If it were me I would wait about two days to call you back and see if you had reconsidered your unrealistic offer. I would call him back Monday and jump on that! !!

... agree w/ fasttex ... if he's under TMV for a CPO and he's selling it to you titled as a new car w/ a 6/100 Subaru extended service contract on top of the factory warranty, I'd jump at it ...

He didn't say Subaru Extended warranty....who issued it and what are the terms.
If its a third party extended warranty, we all know what some of those are worth.
CPO? He didn't say. Has it been titled and registered?
Its a 1.5 year old vehicle, not new.
Treat it like any used car purchase. Get it checked by someone else, drive it thoroughly. Does it shake? Has it had any work performed on it? Ask for the service record.
New 2010 Premiums w/allweather pkg are selling now for 24.5k

Powertrain warranty does not equal to extended warranty glod plus ...
Subaru standard powertain warranty is 5yr/60,000 anyway
Is this loaner in dealer plate and never registered?
It will be sell and register as NEW car if it is never registered, like demo with mileage. You may also qualified for new car loan specials.
You didn't say the trim (limited, base, Prem., 2.5L or 3.6L) so it is hard to guage the offer price.
deduct $0.07 to $0.09 per mile driven.

Sounds like a bargain if you don't mind the non-folding side mirrors.

Greetings, all. Finally gave in and sold my '04 Odyssey private party, in order to get a new Outback. I'm in northern NJ (Bergen County), and here's my deal:
2011 2.5i Premium w/CVT / Moonroof / All-Weather Package
Satin White Pearl
all-weather floor mats
side, behind seat, and rear cargo nets
rear bumper cover
front bumper underguard
I optioned the car through Truecar.com, printed out the order sheet, and went in to the dealership (Liberty Subaru in Emerson, NJ). After a test drive, I told them I was interested, but I was still in the process of selling my van. The sale wouldn't be finalized until the end of the week, and they wanted me to leave a $500.00, non-refundable deposit, which I thought was strange. Of course, I said I would wait until the sale was completed, and the cash was in my account before doing anything, so I left. Less than 1 hour later, my salesperson called me to say that his manager cleared him to place a hold on it (it was in Boston, at the port) without any deposit, but I had to call him on Friday, the day the van was being sold. I said I would, and long story short, the sale worked out well, and I was able to get to the dealership before it closed that Friday, July 30th. We had yet to discuss a firm price, other than a first offer from him at 26,900, before I mentioned any options, for a 2010. When I showed him the Truecar report, and told him that I wanted a 2011 for the rear view camera and folding mirrors, here's what happened: he wrote everything down on the sales form, checked with his manager briefly, and told me we had a deal. No haggling, no trying to sell me a 2010 on the lot, it was pain free and easy.
Doc fee: 195.00
Tire Fee: 7.50
Sales tax: 1,977.43 (NJ is 7%)
Extended Warranty for 7/70,000 (It didn't pay to go for the 100K, as we will surely reach the years before the miles): 840.00
And I got the 2.9% financing for 63 months, and all the options were at cost. I'm happy with the deal, as it was well under what TMV was for a 2011 equipped like mine, and it was a breeze. Who knows if it's really $300 under invoice, but all I know is the sticker says 29,720, and I purchased it for 27,409 (before taxes, warranty, tags, etc., of course). I highly recommend these guys in Emerson, NJ.

Well, the dealer did call me back today (monday), to see if I had any questions. I told him no and my offer of $23,000 still stands. He told me that would be an incredible deal, but he asked his sales super. and was told no. He gave me no counter offer. I just told him thanks, and to call me if he changes his mind.

This is a CPO outback, with the Factory 100K / 6 year warranty. This vehicle was never titled, only about 2,300 miles on it. Dealer wanted $24,900 , I told him I would pay $23,000 with all the fees and taxes included.
