Doc Fees information:
Patrick Subaru, Shrewsbury MA - $289
Metro West Subaru, Natick MA - $296
Cityside Subaru, Belmont, MA - $279
Clay Subaru, Norwood, MA - $354
When we bought a Subaru (Dec 2011) - we called the dealers above and negotiated over the phone. Clay was disorganized and Quirk was very rude over the phone as they insisted we must come to their showroom.

I'm thinking of getting the 3.6 Limited. I live in Connecticut. I'm not clear about whether it comes/must come with the 3.6 engine.
#3045 of 3392 Subaru dealers in California?
Jan 01, 2012 (11:10 pm)
I am trying to purchase and see that tons of you are buying for under invoice, but I can't get a single dealer in So Cal to even get close to invoice, for a base model. Glendale was super rude to me on the phone twice, so definitely not going there. Any good dealers? I am in Ventura County, but will travel.

The only thing that I can see that might be causing it is that you're looking at a BASE model. Regardless of the % discount one is getting the fact that you're starting at a lower number means that the ABSOLUTE DOLLAR AMOUNT that the dealer is working with is lower.
My suggestion is to keep trying. I didn't think SoCal was that strong a Subie market.

The Subaru Outback limited model comes in:
2.5L engine or 3.6L engine
in CT (and other New England states) the car has to also be PZEV - low emission.
If you want the 2.5L engine, then look for:
Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited PZEV
If you want the 3.6L engine, then look for:
Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited PZEV
The 2.5i has better gas mileage (22 city/25 hwy) than the 3.6 (18/25) model.
Once you decide if you want the 2.5i or 3.6R - the other key options is whether you want:
no moonroof OR
Moonroof / rear view camera/homelink pkg OR
Moonroof pkg / Navigation pkg
#3048 of 3392 2012 2.5i Premium CRV + all-weather pkg
Jan 02, 2012 (5:26 pm)
I'm shopping in Denver, CO and got a quote of $24,990 on a 2012 Outback 2.5i Premium, CRV, with the All-weather Package and the "Popular Package 1B" (auto dimming mirror w/ home link, floor mats, splash guards and bumper cover). That price does not include a dealer handling fee of $389 (average in the Denver area appears to be $500) or taxes/title.
Does this sound like a decent deal?
#3049 of 3392 Under invoice in NJ? '12 2.5i limited w/moonroof
Jan 02, 2012 (10:41 pm)
A family member is looking at a 2.5i limited w/moonroof. 500-600 under invoice seems to be the norm - this is via their internet managers
Should I aim for better than this?

In general $500-600 under invoice sounds good. I would check out what the "great price" is for your area on Truecar.com. You can probably get some more off of that. Also check out zag.com and see the price they are listing there - you can usually negotiate a price lower than what is listed on zag.com.
If you going through Internet/Phone channel - then shop around. See what prices the dealers around will give you. I would make sure to include any extra options (eg. all season floor mats) into the price you are negotiating. Make sure you know the Doc Fees of the various dealers as that can vary a lot by dealer (they give that info over the phone).
I think once you got something in writing you may even get some additional $$off by calling in to finalize the deal - when calling confirm they have the car you want in stock and then negotiate a bit more on the final price. Once that is agreed on - you can give them a credit card to hold the car and they should give you the VIN # of the car you bought.
Hope that helps
