I paid $800 below invoice for the Sport Limited with a Moonroof. Got my car from Ramsey Subaru in New Jersey. They are still offering that price through ZAG.com. The catch is they charge you $300 for advertising/documentation fee and another $200 for window VIN etching. So, it's more like $300 below invoice which is still a good price. I'm still waiting for the $500 gift certificate for pre-ordering which is coming from Subaru of America. I believe the invoice was $23,910, including the moonroof, rear bumper applique, cargo tray, and homelink/compass/mirror.
Overall, I am happy with the car. It's actually the wife's, replacing her 2000 Legacy GT Limited. I find the suspension on the new Impreza better than on the old Legacy. I can take turns even faster on this econobox.

cant be happier with the new purchase...got the 5D Limited in Deep Cherry Pearl with Ivory interior...added moonroof/w nav, pkg #1, splash guards out the door for under invoice....MSRP was $25782, and got it for $24,400, TTL was approx $1950, so drive off the lot for $26350.
First Impressions, agree with the cheap sun visors, drive is better than expected, no delay in acceleration like we have with our 2011 Outback. Night lighting is excellent with the projector lamps and fogs on; leather seating is comfortable though I do miss the electric controls as its all manual; handling in good and long hauls, since I have 110 Mile round trip commute every day feels good. No feel on gas mileage yet as Im on the first tank, but have gone 125 miles so far with the computer showing 300 miles remaining. Gas tank capacity is 14.5 gals so we will see at the first fill up.
Nav system is better than what I have in an 09 Cadillac CTS, bluetooth works flawless and is crystal clear, the multimedia center takes a while to learn, but I have XM, and memory stick hooked to the USB port all work well, though I need to work the file structure on the memory stick in order to show titles and songs on the display. The HD radio is also an interesting addition as this is the first I have heard one...
more later as the driving experience grows. I ordered the car in mid Nov and arrived at the dealership in less than 4 weeks.

what RPMs are you turning at 65-70 MPH?
I'm thinking similar config, but being in the Mid Hudson Valley in NY, Subies here sell for MSRP. If I'm not willing to pay it, someone else will...

I just order my 2012 Subaru Impreza Premium Sport CVT from the dealer. The Out the door price is $21400. I have to make a 500 bucks deposit. Is this pricing good or I can do better? Now my question is does this trim level comes with The rear spoiler and the sliding armrest?

if that price includes TTL I would say that is an OK price....I seeing an offer for 19,500 plus TTL on trucar pricing... in my area....anything less than 20K plus TTL is probably good pricing.....as far as the rear spoiler..not sure....the sliding armrest....dont think so as that is an accessory item and my 5DR limited didnt come with it....its my first upgrade along with the door sill plates.

Wow, that would be REAL nice.
I'm currently flipping around between that and the Focus in my head. Tough decision.

I looked at both..as my dealer is also a Ford dealer as well...the same equipped focus 5D was $1500 more on the sticker price than the Impreza....for the same mileage, however I took the AWD into consideration with my commute here in MD and the winter weather.....for the estimated mileage, it cant be beat

According to subaru.com ... Center console with adjustable armrest lid is standard in Premium and above trims.
