i made a couple mistakes on my previous posts so to summarize it up in one post this is what i got. If i got a bad-decent deal i will just have to live with it. i love the car so regardless i am fine. I was just curious.
2010 premium with all weather package - 27k miles on it.
internet sale 19,995
we bought it for 18,300 - before taxes and so on
i ended up getting the 100,000 warranty on it for 1200 - i was under the assumption at 95k miles when they do the 152 point inspection they will be replacing parts that are covered by warranty if needed. Not sure if i should have gotten the warranty but i think i could always cancel it if i decide soon?
EDIT-ohh i thought xwesx was talking to me, then i didnt need to repost.-

My reply was to amzendner, not you sorry. I agree with you on the used 2011 forester though, their price is high.

If your forester came with the certified pre owned warranty, I would not have purchased a extended warranty. If it was not sold as a certified vehicle then it's really up to you if you want to take the chance on something failing/breaking. If it is a certified pre owned vehicle sold by subaru, you get the addition warranty for free. Make sense? I think certified pre owned warranties are 100k? Can anyone confirm this?

The CPO warranties at 7/100 powertrain. I'm not sure about a 95,000-mile inspection; I didn't get that from my reading of Subaru CPO. They do offer the extended warranty options on CPO vehicles, which are less than the similar warranties for new vehicles (most likely because the powertrain is already covered 7/100).
That said, the additional warranty amzendner purchased isn't necessarily a waste if it is a gold plus 7/100 with zero deductible, as there is a whole laundry list of benefits in that plan that are not included in the standard CPO warranty.

Hahah; it worked out. You two were on the same wavelength.

Yes it was the gold warranty for 1200 with 0 deductable.
I asked the fiance guy that at 95k miles that they would do a 152 point inspection and i "Thought" he said they would. I will call the dealership tomorrow and verify some of this.
Another question i have is i bought the car pretty close to 28k miles. According to subaru maintence schedule at 30k miles spark plugs, air filter, brake fluid and a few other things are to be replaced/inspected. When they did the 152 point inspection wouldn't they just replace all of that? or should they have? when i called them today about it they ho-hummed around the answer and said that not every one follows that maintence plan and if every thing is looking good there is no point replacing them.
I am thinking of taking my subaru to a mechanic i have been going to for 15 years and having him check everything. I just want to make sure they replaced everything they should have (which i am sure they did) i am overly cautious by nature
thanks for all your guys help.

Looking at buying a basic 2.5x manual or auto. I am having a hard time figuring out what a good price is out the door for both the auto and the manual. What are others paying for the 2.5x auto and manual?

For the auto base model, you want to be as close as you can to $20,956 out the door with tax and fees included. My tax is 7.725%, so if your tax is lower just deduct accordingly. I know for a fact this is a good deal and can be had. My number is based on a MSRP OF $23,690 (sticker price). You would actually be stealing the car for that much... Even if you can get it for $21,456 that's still a good deal. If you get it for $21,456 out the door, tell them you will I only do it if they throw in the all weather floor mats you should do all of the negotiating on the last day of the month! And try to talk directly with the general manager if possible

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking a good price for the auto would be $22,000 OTD with all taxes and fees, so I am glad I asked. Did you actually buy a forester for this much, and does it matter what state I am in?

I had that offer on the table along with a offer on a premium model. Both offers were accepted and I chose the premium. I think it depends on the sales guy and dealership and what time of the month it is. Play hard ball. Those are the figures to shoot for. Talk to other subaru dealerships in the area, try to send offers directly to the GM or Internet sales manager. Don't tell them what dealerships your shopping because they will call your bluffs. I think shopping on the last day if the month really helps. Go down to the dealership and negotiate, get pre approved for financing, get their hopes up and then leave. Then send your email with your offer letting them know that's your final offer. Don't forget to include the all weather floor mats
