#910 of 933 2013 Impreza Sport Premium
Nov 23, 2012 (11:09 pm)
I just purchased a 2013 Impreza Sport Premium in Crystal Black Silica with the Ivory interior. I originally wanted the Dark Grey Metallic but did not want to wait 8-12 weeks to order one. I must say that the black exterior looks SHARP!
I opted for the CVT, rear roof spoiler, and popular package #1 (Homelink/Auto Dim Mirror, All-weather mats, cargo tray, rear seatback protectors, and rear bumper applique)
The MSRP was $23,395
Sales price: $22,980 ($415 off MSRP).
License, Title , & Reg. Fees: $110
WA Sales Tax: $1705.38 (which is less than 8.6%...oh well, not my problem!)
Document Fee: $150
Total OTD: $21,795.38
Could I have bought it for less? Maybe. At the end though, I feel good and now have a brand new car sitting in my driveway! I love it!

#912 of 933 Invoice or try for more?
Dec 08, 2012 (6:30 pm)
Hey all -
I'm looking to buy a sport limited which are in very short supply in my area, and I just found out my company has the VIP program. Seems like people are getting at least *some* discount off invoice, but I'm wondering if that's just the posts I've happened read.
Anyone have a feel for whether it's worth trying to negotiate people down, or just pull the trigger on invoice and get what's available now so I don't have to wait 4 months?

#916 of 933 Considering a 2013 Sport Limited
Dec 28, 2012 (5:23 pm)
I'm considering replacing my 2001 Forester L with a 2013 Impreza Sport Limited. My Forester has served me well and I'm reluctant to let it go, but I think its time.
I've been lurking on the threads for a couple of weeks and have seen some forum members getting prices as low as $1,000 under invoice.
My plan is to do what I did over 12.5 years ago... email all Subaru dealers within a 25 mile radius and simply ask them to quote me a their best price on the Impreza and options I'm looking for. I also plan to order my Impreza since it seems dealers are more willing to provide good pricing on orders when floor stock is limited (I also get exactly what I want).
My questions are:
Is this still a good strategy 12.5 years later?
Is Edmunds still the best source for obtaining invoice price information? Any other sources?
Any other tips?
Thanks in advance for any replies. I'm in no rush as my Forester is still running well, but thought I'd get this process going.

SD70, yes I think emailing a group of dealers is the best way to start. KBB and Edmonds are the most popular pricing guides. When I shop for a new car, I email within 100 miles, and I live in a metro area of 3 million people, so I hit maybe 15 dealers or so. You will eventually find a dealer that sells at or near invoice. However your trade in will sort of mess all that up because the dealer you go to will be the one who costs you the least amount of net cash out of your pocket. In the end, the dealer I used was only 10 miles from my house because I negotiated the lowest net cash deal with him. The cheapest car however was at a dealer 100 miles from me, but he didn't give me as much for the trade in. IGNORE the people here saying they got a car for $1200 UNDER invoice because dealers can, and do, play with that number to fool you. Those buyers didn't ask about hidden dealer rebates, incentives, etc from the factory that don't get passed to the customer. No dealer is losing money on a car---and I mean NO dealer does that. I use to be a CPA on staff at a couple of large auto dealers, so I'm aware of the game they play. I narrow all my emailed dealers down to 3 or so and then I start making phone calls. For me, the deal is done with just one visit---the one where they give me a final price for my trade. I actually have a preliminary price from them BEFORE I go there. That's it. Be sure you know the msrp and the cost before you start emailing so you can bargain intelligently.
