2013 and earlier-Subaru Outback Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I'm looking to purchase pretty much the exact set-up. I'm not sure how you negotiated that pricing, but does anyone know what the trends are for when the next model comes out? When do the 2014 Outbacks come out?

    I just got a quote for a White 2013 Limited with SAP....MSRP $34,456 and I have two quotes within $150 of eachother. Lowest is $30, 116. :shades:

    I'm trying to get a price match from my local dealer but nothing so far. The quotes are about a 2.5 hour drive from me, but worth saving about $1000 for the next lowest quote.

    Sounds like a great price, don't know what kind of dealer add ins your quotes have, but that would make all the difference. Get the one that has what you want. I did not want puddle lights, so I went for the one that had what I wanted. It happened to be at the dealer closest to home and work, so it was worth it. Make sure you get an out the door price from everyone before you trek 2.5 hrs, would be a waste if they bait and switch you with dealer fees.

    What part of the country are you in?

    The car you are describing is a 30k + MSRP. You need to show us how much the trade was to get it to the $23,189 price. How much was the dealer price before your trade in because you obviously did not get $7000 off MSRP. My 2013 Outback Premium had an MSRP of $28,306 and my price was $25,300 before my trade and $14,000 after my trade plus TTL.

    I went to IRA Subaru in Danvers, MA over the weekend and negotiated the offer displayed here:
    Invoice Page.
    The salesman told me he would sell me the car for $1500 under the invoice price. I tried to negotiate further to no avail.
    The next day I went to Clay Subaru and they beat IRA's price by $200 with an $24,800 offer but they told me that the $800 would be extra. I am not sure if IRA's offer included the destination fee... What do you think?

    This is the exact car I just bought including the color. The only difference is I have bodyside moldings and autodim mirror with compass also included. I emailed within 150 miles and the best deal I got was very close to Ira's deal at a dealer 25 minutes from my house in South Portland, Maine. They told me that they price aggresive on emails because they only have one shot at it.The dealer 5 minutes from my house was alot more and they gave me every excuse why they could not go lower. I would take Ira's deal because Clay would be $600 more by the time they add $800. Also Subaru has 0% financing till the end of the month for 48 months. Don't let some of the prices you see on this forum fool you because some are not including their trade and I'm sure other factors. I could have gotten a little better deal on a Limited but it had features I was not interested in and still would have been alot more. I think the Outback Premium is the best value for features in their lineup. They make bigger profits on the jack upped big ticket options.
  • If you guys aren't using Truecar, you should be. I used it to guide my negotiations (and expectations) when I purchased my Outback two weeks ago in Northern California.

    I walked out with a Premium with Moonroof (MSRP 29,811 - I think), for 25,200 + $40 docs, $270 reg, and about $2k sales tax. I really didn't want to pay that much, but with the 48 months - 0% and the time I had spent researching, I just gave in. Still can't complain for the price.

    Truecar was over $600 more then I paid in Maine and was cheaper then Ma dealers. I looked up True car for Northern California and their prices were $24800 for my car. It seems Truecar is $1100 cheaper in your area. The problem in the Northeast is I believe there is a family that has had the ditribution rights since Subaru came to US and all cars go thru them and prices are higher here plus there are more dealers in California so it is a much more competitive market.

    The current financing offer of 0%/48 months expires today, correct? Does anyone know what incentives will be replacing this one? Do they usually announce the next one right away?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Can you send me the name of the person from the Livermore Subaru that you worked with? Thanks in advance.

    Got a 2013 Limited SAP (roof, nav, brown leather, keyless) with moldings, splash guards, front tint, and trailer hitch for $30k plus ttl. While I'm sure I could have done better, I was impressed by the dealer - a family-owner place 70 miles away. Calm, relaxed, highly knowledgeable about the product. There are four dealers closer to me but again, this one really impressed me. 0%/48 months is still going on until July 1; I went with .9% for 60.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you need to get your facts straight.

    Are you sure you don't have a 2013 Outback 3.6R Limited SAP?

    The 2014 Outback 3.6R Limited SAP includes Eyesight, whereas the 2013 SAP does not. The 2015 will be gen-5 so it will be totally different from the 13-14.

    You should clarify your purchase information. Misinformation is a major hindrance when researching a serious purchase like a new car.

    I'm in the process of ordering a 2014 Outback 3.6R Limited SAP.

    The 2013 Outback 3.6R Limited SAP does NOT have Eyesight, but the 2014 Outback 3.6R Limited SAP does.

    I found a dealer who hit my price target of $33,500 (which includes $265 doc fee) out the door (out of state so no TTL). I got them to throw in remote start ($369) as a bonus.

    According to, MSRP is $37,960. With everything at full price (not that anyone pays fulls price), it would come to nearly $38,600 -- a difference of $5100.

    Would love to hear from anyone else who's ordered the same vehicle.

    Can you please specify whether this was the 2.5 or 3.6? I'm guessing it's the 2.5 based on the 30K figure but let us know to confirm. I'd be blown away if you got the 3.6 Limited SAP for 30K.
