There's a small chance I may buy the exact same car, even down to the color. Lemme know how you like it.

May I ask how you got such a good deal? They're trying to get me for $24k OTD on a sports premium. Not a good price in my opinion.

Just to clarify, the price was $23188+tax/license/fees. OTD was ~$25k. So $24k for Sports Premium sounds about right. See if you can squeeze them some more. But then they'd play the guilt trip and make you look cheap.
One beef I had was that they said Subaru of America Finance will not accept credit card as form of downpayment. I've bought BMW, MBZ, Mini using credit card as downpayment to take advantage of frequent flier miles.
So if anyone had recently paid downpayment with a credit card, please let me know. Then I'll go back and say LIAR and reflect that in the survey.

I cannot believed I was lied to. A co-worker bought a WRX several weeks after I got mine, and he paid downpayment with his credit card.
My dealer said it was Subaru of America Financing that will not accept credit card as form of downpayment. What a BS.
As payback, I gave them all 1's in their stupid survey.

Usually they let you pay up to a certain amount on a CC, but it may depend on your credit score.
They let me charge $2000 but I was Tier I, which was nice because I have the Chase Subaru card and immediately got $60 credit.

How do I compare prices???
Dealer told me MSRP, but does that include things like destination charge? Is the MSRP a valid place to start when there are all these things added and subtracted down the line?
What's a reasonable amount to get off the MSRP?
Unfortunately they all seem to have a handful of options that I don't really want. Is the auto-dim mirror with a compass really worth $200? Does anyone really use a compass?
Then after "discounting" they add in a whopping $499 document fee in addition to $30 DMV and tax. What's that document fee all about? Can't we just call a spade a spade and not pretend I'm getting a big discount when it gets counteracted by this fee?
Thanks for any input. I don't think I'm a very savvy buyer but that's why I'm here.

Saw a 5 door in a pearl white color at the Welington Mall last week and it was a real beauty! Had a slush box which I think was a CVT which is how I'd buy one. The seats looked to have nice grippy cloth and am wondering how good the tranny works as not all CVT's are the same and from what I've heard, the newer ones seem to be a bit better than the one like my kid has in her '09 Versa. It ain't bad but one can tell it's not a regular automatic. The 5 door looked to be the perfect compact size, figuring around the 180" length, which is just about perfect for me. Don't see that many Subies down south here and the mileage figures weren't stellar either but I just liked the look of the car. And I do like a hatch as compared to a regular sedan for the added versatility.
Is it fair to say that a regular sedan would be closer to the $21k price point? Am already thinking about my next purchase though that won't be for a few years down the pike but am always looking. What's the warranty like on Subies and are they as reliable as the Honda/Toyota/Nissan products that we usually purchase?
