    You're still $400 under invoice before you add in the coupon, so you're definitely in "good deal" territory. Those others? Those are great deals! ;)

    Congrats on the new Outback!
  • He doesn't need to fly to IL. He can find similar deal in DE.
    NY and new England area should boycott OB for that additional $1300 regional Ad fee.

    Just to clarify, was that your out-the-door price?
    or was tax on top of that?
    If ppl can get out the door thousands less than MSRP, that seems like an awesome deal to me.
    Closest I got was pretty much at MSRP for a 2.5 Limited w Moonroof, for around $31K. As taxes, tags and licence would've been another $3K or so, that's what I was saving ....but trying to do better...if you're under $28K all in, that's sweet.
    I might fly to Chi for that ..or Deleware -- that do-able?

    To the other Q on NYC, I went to Koeppel in Queens to test drive, and they tried to sell me pretty weak deal, so left that place. then used Truecar and was emailing several places. Liberty Subaru in Paramus NJ was the most responsive, and got down to the deal that basically negated TTL cost.

    But I'm in no rush as I can wait through the winter for the best deal (no need to pay for a garage in NYC through the winter!)
  • I was in to a Subaru dealership here in the Detroit area on Saturday looking at a base model with alloy wheel package. I had the truecar statement which put the sale price at @$2000 of the MSRP. Actually I was hoping for more but this was without negotiation. When it came to my trade-in was where they tried to make their money back. Bluebook says my current vehicle is worth @$4000 and the salesman said they would probably offer @$1000 but they came back at$2200. No go. I'll try again later.
    They weren't in any hurry to sell the car anyways as the vehicle I wanted was "in transit". No sense going out of your way to sell a car you don't even have yet.
    Now that I have waited I am thinking about the new XV out next year.
  • Price of car was 27995 including destination. Taxes and 156 doc fee and plate transfer were additional. Since these vary state to state (and county to county) I don't think you can compare based on that. Some states doc fees are hundreds more. In Illinois the sales tax is also computed on the net price less the trade, so that will also goof the numbers up. Invoice on the car I got was 29373. There has to be a holdback out there, but I couldn't nail that down. I'm sure he didn't lose any money over this.

    Here is the extract from my dealer with his quote for an OTD price:

    MSRP $31,665
    Invoice $29,373

    Selling Price $27,995
    Doc Fee 156.08
    Tax 2,042.77 ( Lake County )
    New Plates 219
    Grand Total $30,012.85
  • I don't think residents in NY and New England area can get a price close to other areas.
    (1) PZEV partial zero emission vehicle $300, is required on 4 cylinders in CA, CT, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, OR, PA, RI, VT, WA
    (2) If you check truecar, you will find a $1300 regional Ad fee which is not applied to IL, DE, or other southern states.

    $1600 extra on your sticker price compared with same trim in other areas.
  • I have a quote for the following from a local dealer. How does this fair with what others are getting?

    2012 Outback Premium 2.5i CVT

    26,572 + TTL Premium Pkg: all weather pkg, wheel arch molding, rear bumper cover, all season mats, wheel locks, remote engine starter, and auto dimming mirror w/compass and homelink.

    25,581 + TTL Premium Pkg: all weather pkg only.

  • IMHO
    I think can be $500 lower if you are in new england area.
    may be slightly different if you apply 0%APR

    here is a quote I got before negotiation:
    MSPR $27620
    invoice is $26328
    your zag discount is $900 bring it down to $25428 before TTL

    If you are not in NE, subtract 1600~1300 from above number.
  • I'm confused -- so are you saying the price is higher in NE or lower? Thanks!
  • xwesxxwesx Fairbanks, AlaskaPosts: 8,391
    Higher, due to the "regional ad fee" tacked onto the vehicles by the regional distributor.
  • No Dealer will sell you a 2012 Outback as described or Not, for 2200(1300+900) Back off Invoice and that I guarantee.
  • Picked up above vehicle with MSRP of $29,609 for $26,985 or about $500 under invoice. 3 year 15K miles per year lease. MF .001 residual 51%. In and out in less than 2 hours, dealt with Internet Manager had quote ahead of time. Greater Sacramento California area. Pick up vehicle this weekend after Master Cylinder replacement. True car is $700 under invoice now, but didn't want to drive over an hour to get that price, rather deal locally.
  • i checked it does show transaction in that area between 25506~25750, which is not far from the number I got, 25428.

    Just picked up a new outback after shopping around for a week. Out of all the dealers in Northeast PA, best deals were in Allentown. Dealers in my area were giving me $300 more than book value on my trade- in, but expected me to pay MSRP for the new car. Dealers in Allentown matched the trade in, and discounted the new outback. It was a no-brainier.

    MSRP 28,081 on 2.5i premium/all weather w/ cargo net, fender & splash guards.
    Paid 25,790 before Trade, Tax and tags.
  • Options: front bumper under-guard, rear bumper cover, rear cargo net, auto dimming mirror with home link, wheel lock, splash guard.
    Price: 24500$ before TTL
    OTD: 26350$
