The '02 Limited certainly sounds like the best choice. Of course, you're taking the risk of having head gasket issues present or soon cropping up. If other maintenance is current, including the struts (and possibly half shafts) having been replaced in the not-so-distant past, the price you'd pay for it is enough lower than the LL Bean that you could have a shop replace the head gaskets and still not be into it for more than a car with, perhaps, a less stellar history.
For me, knowing the history of a used car adds a lot to its intrinsic value as it generally cuts down on the surprises, some of which like to occur moments after signing on the dotted line.
Good luck in your hunt!

After telling the business manager I would come home and research warranties, he dropped the list price of the 7/70 plan from $1620 to $1099. Has anyone done better on the warranty? They also offered $575 for the Ultimate Vehicle Protection. Is it worth it?

What is the deductible on your 7/70? The price sounds reasonable, even if not the absolute best you could have come by.
I'm not sure about that UPP; that's not a manufacturer thing.

Got the above w/moonroof for 29959 plus TTL, in NJ.
Hopefully it was a good deal. Can't wait to pick it up.

that sounds really good, from what I've been researching
I'm in NYC too -- where did you buy this one? Seems like you have to leave the city to frind a Subaru dealership.
#2952 of 3458 Cash offer worth bigger discount?
Oct 20, 2011 (12:18 pm)
thanks for this info -- very valuable. So I understand the target to shoot for is $4K below MSRP, great to know.
Another Q though -- if not doing financing, should one expect to get more of a break on the price? I intend to pay cash -- would you assume I should target $5-6k below MSRP in that case?

I don't think so, actually dealers can make more money on financing than they can on a cash deal. Don't mention how you're paying until after you finalize a price.
