#3018 of 3414 2012 2.5 outback ltd pkg 4 +items
Dec 12, 2011 (9:24 am)
2.5 Outback Limited
+pkg 4 (sunroof, mirror)
+ Side Moldings
+All weather matts
+Rear bumper cover
Negotiated price of car 27995 including destination. + sales tax, title, fees (156). Illinois mandates the amounts on these three items -- non-negotiable except for doc which could go less than 156.).
After this was finalized, we then talked about a trade.
Found dealer (Grand Subaru) via the Subaru website, in Bensenville, il. Dealt via email with Dan D. Dan was great and did not make me do a lot of back and forth with the car. We did do a bit on the trade which I got the price boosted by 10%. Car was waiting for the test drive when we pulled in on Saturday PM. Finance guy was another story, I heard the '2more minutes' every5-10 minutes three times. Eventually we got in and when we got over his astonishment that I did not want their (3rd party) warranty the deal closed quickly. It was typical nice Saturday afternoon, with other customers buying cars, so I am not sure it the total time was too long or not, but beginning to end it was about 2 hours. My record for in and out is 40 minutes including a trade in and a test drive.

The dealer is really close to Ohare. Fly 1 way, see the town, drive home.

I also have $250 coupon from the Auto show so total deal is $29,150.
Not a good deal compared to others but I'm happy with it.

Hey tripel, I too am from NYC in Queens. What other dealers have you gotten quotes from, in Queens & Long Island. I am in search of an 2012 Outback Premium CVT w/AWP. I have gotten 2 quotes of $26,102 and $26,075. Is this a good deal or can I do better? I have not counter offer yet.

You're still $400 under invoice before you add in the coupon, so you're definitely in "good deal" territory. Those others? Those are great deals!
Congrats on the new Outback!

He doesn't need to fly to IL. He can find similar deal in DE.
NY and new England area should boycott OB for that additional $1300 regional Ad fee.

Just to clarify, was that your out-the-door price?
or was tax on top of that?
If ppl can get out the door thousands less than MSRP, that seems like an awesome deal to me.
Closest I got was pretty much at MSRP for a 2.5 Limited w Moonroof, for around $31K. As taxes, tags and licence would've been another $3K or so, that's what I was saving ....but trying to do better...if you're under $28K all in, that's sweet.
I might fly to Chi for that ..or Deleware -- that do-able?
To the other Q on NYC, I went to Koeppel in Queens to test drive, and they tried to sell me pretty weak deal, so left that place. then used Truecar and was emailing several places. Liberty Subaru in Paramus NJ was the most responsive, and got down to the deal that basically negated TTL cost.
But I'm in no rush as I can wait through the winter for the best deal (no need to pay for a garage in NYC through the winter!)

I was in to a Subaru dealership here in the Detroit area on Saturday looking at a base model with alloy wheel package. I had the truecar statement which put the sale price at $2000 of the MSRP. Actually I was hoping for more but this was without negotiation. When it came to my trade-in was where they tried to make their money back. Bluebook says my current vehicle is worth $4000 and the salesman said they would probably offer $1000 but they came back at$2200. No go. I'll try again later.
They weren't in any hurry to sell the car anyways as the vehicle I wanted was "in transit". No sense going out of your way to sell a car you don't even have yet.
Now that I have waited I am thinking about the new XV out next year.

Price of car was 27995 including destination. Taxes and 156 doc fee and plate transfer were additional. Since these vary state to state (and county to county) I don't think you can compare based on that. Some states doc fees are hundreds more. In Illinois the sales tax is also computed on the net price less the trade, so that will also goof the numbers up. Invoice on the car I got was 29373. There has to be a holdback out there, but I couldn't nail that down. I'm sure he didn't lose any money over this.
Here is the extract from my dealer with his quote for an OTD price:
Selling Price $27,995
Doc Fee 156.08
Tax 2,042.77 ( Lake County )
New Plates 219
Grand Total $30,012.85
**DESTINATION AND DELIVERY INCLUDED IN PRICE QUOTE**
