#2997 of 3393 2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i Premium CVT with options
Nov 24, 2011 (7:48 pm)
Hi, just had a car quoted and want to know if it is a good price. True Car says it's a great price, but I'm not sure how acccurate this is. Quote was for a factory ordered 2.5i Premium CVT car for $28,366 plus taxes, and fees. It is a 2.5i Premium with a number of options and accesories. Options include All-weather, moonroof, auto-dim mirror with camera, puddle lights, body-side molding, splashgauards, cargo nets, and bumper cover, wheel arch moldings, trailer hitch, bumper underguards, side window deflectors, and hood protector. Supposedly, is about $500 under invoice for the car and options. I was also told it could take 3 months from factory. Is this about right? What have others paid for a nicely equipped 2.5i Premium. Thanks.

Seems like a great deal. It also seems to vary depending on where you are. Im in the NYC tri-state area and have had a hard time getting dealers to go down in price. Pretty much I've seen is getting the actual sticker price out the door (ie getting him down as much as the ttl cost.). 31k for a 2.5 limited with moonroof
EDIT -- sorry, misread this a limited, not premium. At 500 below invoice that's not amazing -- you should be about to do better. As above, if you can get out the door for their listing price (ttl included) then that seems good to me. Others agree?
#2999 of 3393 Subaru "Stop-ship"

Subaru has just lifted a "stop-ship" which was caused by a faulty master cylinder in the OB, Impreza, and Legacy built between 10/17 and 11/23 or so. Shipping should resume shortly so any buyers may want to wait till inventories have come up before venturing out to their dealerships. Better deals may be had if they end up being overstocked. I guess they had thousands on the lots in Indiana.

We received a quote from a dealer for an outback 2.5i Limited with moonroof package.
Dealer Offer: $29,300 including destination charge.
I'm a new buyer and I just want to know if this is a good deal.

That's $500 under invoice, so yes, that's a good deal.

Sounds like you got a good deal. I am also looking to buy a new Subaru Outback, hopefully in next two weeks. Can you tell me the name of the dealership you bought your outback from ?

They already had short supply, this is a mess. There goes 2011, pretty much.

Not sure when exactly this started, late November anyways cause they caught it 11/23 or so. But they are shipping now, presumably with new master cylinders included for the dealerships to install. LOL So there will likely be a backup at the dealerships to get the part replaced depending on how fast they restock. Dealers in my area have 2 OB's "in transit" each. not very heartening!

I picked up my 2.5 Limited with Sunroof package this morning. I paid a little more (~$150 more) than you did and I consider my price good but not great. Yours is closer to great
I did pick up a 6/100k warrantee for $1200 with it. I think that was a decent price too. again not great but good.

As you said yourself, it seems the new Outbacks are getting shipped again along with the replacement parts that are going to installed before we get the car out of dealership.
I have been in touch with the dealers here in bay area. A couple of them are willing to give new outbacks at prices below invoice price and this is without me even starting to negotiate.
The prices look good, but it could be that Subaru is incentivising the sale of recall vehicles, but I don't know for sure what the deal really is.
Anyhow, if the replacement of master brake cylinders is not a big issue then this is a good time to buy an outback as they seem to be available cheaper.
What are your thoughts on this?
