I'm wondering the same thing. For me, I'd need to save at least $2000 to get me to buy a 2012 instead of waiting for a 2013. So far, I don't see that in my area. I don't think that Subaru has offered rebates in the past few years. In past purchases (a 2005, and a 2001 model year Outback and a 2007 Forester), I saved a lot by buying the outgoing model year. I was keeping an eye on the prices last year and I didn't see great deals on the outgoing model year. I'm guessing we won't see rebates this year either.
I have bought several cars Memorial day weekend. I have found that to be a good time in the past. I've bought from the loss leader ads in the paper.

I just got a quote about 2.5i premier outback with all weather package yesterday (New England).
Is that a good deal?

Looks good to me! With a rough calc, that looks to be over a grand under invoice.

I got mine last Monday.
MSRP: 31,687 (Limited 2.5i with moonroof, no navigation)
Price: 28,388 (somewhere around that)
Included: Free oil changes for life, and they added side mouldings, puddle lights, and a cargo net.
But, I did trade in two vehicles, which might have influenced the deal.

Hayes, How do like the 3.6R? I have a 2010 2.5i Legacy which was purchased as a CPO. I also have a 2010 CRV leased....Thinking of trading the CRV in for a 2012 Outback - toying with the 3.6R Limited. I'm still on the fence about the 4 Banger (our Legacy is averaging 27 mpg - 50 % City/Suburban & 50% Highway ,now has 36.5K mileage)... Looks like you made a pretty good deal.

subhash, I just received a Flyer from my Service Dealer - not the one I purchased our 2010 Legacy 2.5i CPO from. They are offering a $2500 premium over the Book on the Trade in toward a new 2012 Subaru, Subaru incentives is 1.9% financing for 5 years (says on certain Models)....Sounds like they are starting to entertain deals. Happy Shopping. Do your research here at Edmunds and other sites. Are you a Costco Customer? if so, Check their referral - I saved a lot on my 2007 Infiniti G35X lease a few years ago - about $40 a month over 39 months with COSTCO..

Hello. I'm a new Subaru owner. Really (I mean REALLY) wanted to wait for the 2013 Outback, but finally resigned that the changes are not huge, I'd probably get a better deal on a 2012, the sales people kept calling, and with an additional car, now my son can be the taxi to early a.m. swim practice. I also wasn't really sure when the 2013s would become available. So, on 5-31, my husband and I left our poor daughter at home to do homework on her 15th birthday while we went to go buy a car. (We are horrible parents!) I'm not sure the "deal" was the best, as I didn't get quotes from other dealers. It started out as a "Costco" price, but after I decided to wait on the purchase three weeks ago, the salesman called back at the end of May with an offer of $30K flat. Said this was under the Dealer Holdback price and that even he couldn't get that price (really?).
Outback Limited 2.5i with Moonroof & Nav (was having second thoughts on Nav, but got it....)
Agreed Price $30000 plus TTL
Was this okay? Car has Puddle lights, body side molding, weather mats, rear bumper cover, & splash guards. It's red, which is what I really wanted, although I could have settled for another option. I didn't have to travel far to get the car.
Only possible "regret" is that the finance guy shoved a Gold Extended Subaru Warranty (7 years total/100,000 miles with $100 deductible) in the package--WITHOUT ASKING! Once I realized what was happening, I put on the brakes. My husband then thought it would be a good idea with all the new electronics, and especially the Nav system, which we have never owned. I'm KICKING myself for not negotiating this addition, or even turning it down completely. Did not realize it could be purchased later, even close to the end of the original warranty's expiration until after the fact. He never presented various options for extended warranties, just said, "Your monthly payment includes...extended warranty." I felt a bit "taken" once home for not realizing this was as much of a negotiating point as anything else and something that could have been considered later.
"Nick" claimed we were getting the "Costco" price for this--at $1100, "down" from $2500. Found out Costco has NO negotiated price for extended warranties. Agreed because I was tired and thinking about my daughter, lonely on her bday, and my husband was for it, but didn't attempt to ask for a better price. Apparently I can cancel this policy for a full refund minus $25 fee within the first 90 days.
I asked about a zero deductible and all he said, was that will really raise your price and not be worth it. I never thought of asking for the $1100 price with no deductible or lowering the price altogether. It effectively raised my OTD price by $1177, including the tax.
Should I cancel the warranty? Or, if it's a good plan, price shop other dealers at the end of this month? So far, that's my only true regret on the purchase.
