A week and a half ago I went to a local (Bay Area) dealership to look for a deal on 2011 Outback 2.5 Limited...knowing that 2012s are rolling in very soon...
I was expecting up to a $3,000 off MSRP.
Inventory was getting slim and they did not have what I wanted (silver or dark gray Limited without Nav).
Dealer offered $2,700 OFF MSRP on 2012 "in transit" without much hesitation...and I took it.
It was delivered last night as promised...I have purchased Subaru extended warranty - bumper to bumper up to a 6 years/60,000 miles - paid $912. I feel I could have done better on this.
Overall positive experience...
I love color display on stereo even without Nav.

Possibly. Is that the Gold warranty with zero deductible? Instead of looking at what you could have done better, consider what you did get.... There are many folks out there who pay MSRP for the extended warranty; you picked up yours for way under that.

Congrats on your purchase! Sounds like a great price on your 2012 2.5 Limited (~$500 under invoice, depending on what other accessories were included.) I'm certain I could probably have done better on my deal as well, but with the Subaru trade-in program, I got a bit lazy since the deal seemed so good already. I also liked that I got to configure one with the exact accessories I wanted. Really hate the expensive wheel arch moldings, but I must be in the minority on this since every single Premium Outback they order in eastern PA has them.

Paid $24 for 2012 manual Premium w/Cold Weather package. When i was buying they said it would be ready monday, then called back to push me to Wed or Thu. I was happy with deal though.
#2930 of 3414 Amazing deal (lease) on Outback 2.5i Limited
Oct 10, 2011 (8:27 am)
I recently leased a 2012 Outback 2.5i Limited in Houston. I think I got a really good deal...
It was raining and the 2nd to last day of the month (9/30) and they wanted the sale.
MSRP was $31,467; the negotiated capitalized cost was $26,740.
Tax & tags ($131); Acquisition ($895) probably too high; Doc, Lic & M ($334).
Gross Capitalized Cost = $28,225.91
Total out of pocket $800 (including 1st month payment) and I had the car delivered to my house (~ 20 miles from the dealership).
39 month lease at 12k miles/yr = $369.99/month
Money Factor = 0.0018
Residual Value = 51%
I had initially negotiated a deal for a 2.5i Premium (but the dealer had a toughttime locating the color I wanted); we ended up at:
MSRP - $27,049
Value ~ $24,049
Out the door - $800 (including 1st month payment)
36 month lease at 15k miles/yr
MF = 0.0018; RV = 54%
The first deal they offered was a capitalized cost of $24,049, w/ a monthly payment of $440 - $460/month. I'm not sure what MF or residual value they were using, but it was way high. After a few iterations for the guy to check with his manager we got to the above deal.

Can you send me the name of the dealer and salesperson. I offered the local dealer 2700 off MSRP on the same car and they acted like I insulted their mother. Thanks.

Anyone know the money factor and residual on a 36month/15k mile lease

That sounds like a great deal. Is it from Subaru Carter Ballard???

MSRP was just shy of $33000. Got if for $28887 about $4100 off MSRP. I suggest anyone in the midwest Contact Melissa at AutoBarn Subaru in Countryside, IL. You could also try Grand Subaru, they were aggressive as well but I do not have the buying experience there just e-mails, the autobarn was painless. Melissa's price will be great but also with little wiggle room if any. Go on the website and ask for the e-price.
