#2916 of 3458 2012 Outback Prices
Sep 08, 2011 (8:31 pm)
Anyone getting any prices quotes on the 2012 models yet? About to sign off on a 2.5i Premium w/ AWP that we're ordering for Invoice, and taking advantage of a very strong Guaranteed Trade-In Value from Subaru on our 2010 Outback. Wasn't really looking to trade up, but for $3k get a two model year newer car with some items we really wish our 2010 had - folding mirrors, Bluetooth compatibility (now standard on the Premium,) a factory trailer hitch, and most importantly to my wife, the dark interior. Our 2010 has the white/taupe and it always looks dingy, especially the door pulls. Drives her crazy...

While I haven't gotten a quote I had a long conversation, on the golf course, with the salesman that sold me my '10 Legacy. I asked him about any upgrades/improvements in the '12 versus the '11 models. He said there was no change and mentioned that as far as he knew the price would be about the same.
$3,000 sounds pretty fair, mileage, condition and other things taken into consideration. If I could get by for about that amount I'd give some serious thought to upgrading. I think I paid about $300 for the Bluetooth on mine and AFAIK the factory hitch isn't cheap. Good luck.

Was at the dealer last night, looking to purchase a 2012 Outback.
We are looking at the 3.6 Premium, with the following options, Moonroof, and upgraded stereo. I know the prices are not out yet, but the dealer gave us a price of 31,600, does that seem like a good price?

Yes, the factory hitch isn't cheap ($389 Invoice), but since we had the opportunity to get what we wanted, I prefer the factory install this since it's integrated into the rear bumper. Prices for 2012s are just slightly higher, plus $50 higher destination (reposted from cars101):
Prices: small increases on all models: 2.5i $100, Premium $300, Limited $200, 3.6R $100, Premium $300, 3.6R Limited $200
Destination now $775 from $725. $925 to Alaska
There are a few changes for 2012, but nothing major like the new engine from the Forester. Summary of changes, simply reposted from other sites:
Optional Alloy wheel pkg for the base 2.5i
-16" silver painted alloy wheels
-All weather pkg (heated seats, outside mirrors, wipers.
New AM/FM/CD stereo on 2.5i
Standard Bluetooth w/steering wheel controls on 2.5i premium.
Optional Harman Kardon Sound with HD radio on 2.5i premium.
New design steering wheel w/black audio and cruise buttons.
New design crossbars.
New Deep Indigio Pearl with ivory interior
New Ice Silver Metallic with off black (dark gray) interior
Ruby Red Pearl now with the dark gray interior instead of ivory.
Gone Azurite Blue Pearl
Gone Steel Silver Metallic

Unfortunately the subaru website doesn't have the 2012 prices, but you can find the "unofficial" pricing information at:
My salesman confirmed these are correct. Ours is on-order and will be in at the end of September (we were able to reconfigure one that was already in-process.) I didn't see the 3.6 Premium with Moonroof and HK Audio as a possible configuration, so not sure what the MSRP of yours is. Dealer should definitely be able to tell you the MSRP at this point.

Thank you for the link. Definetly will have to check the options.
#2922 of 3458 Is this a good deal on a lease?
Sep 11, 2011 (4:42 pm)
In mid August I picked up a 2011 Subaru Outback 2.5 Limited. Wondering if this was a good deal on a lease?
1200 out of pocket
385 a month for 36 months
12k a year mileage
(includes tax title and reg)

Mark. Please share purchase price and perhaps even location of purchase. I am also in Mil-town and looking at that exact same car (3.6 Limited), though I'd go without the moonroof to save some additional cash if that were an easy thing to do.

Hey I just recently started looking for a Outback the same as yours... I am pretty bad with negotiations and hate doing it. Would you be able to tell me which dealer you got your car so that I can check out that dealer. I am in Seattle too. That price looks really good.
All the best with your new Outback.

i ended up with very similar quotes from carter (ballard), walkers (renton), and chaplins (bellevue) - since they were all willing to match prices (or get very close to what I was getting from one of the other). i ended up purchasing from chaplins b/c they had the color i wanted. i did all my negotiating with the respective internet sales managers over email and phone, which made it a lot less stressful. good luck!
