First time car buyers just bought 2010 Forester Premium
So we just bought a 2010 Subaru Forester. Drives well and we think we got a decent price (~$23+change all-in). A couple of issues we had though that we aren't sure about as they came up after the "final" calculation. Any help would be great as we are first time car buyers and Subaru owners:
- We are still deciding about the extended warranty. Our car is 2010 w/ ~6800 miles so the regular warranty gets us another two years or ~29K miles. Then the PowerTrain gets us another couple years. We can get a seven year for $1495 (I think this will take us three years beyond the original warranty and they claim that you get it back if you don't file a claim. Is this worth it? Is it true you can buy this later? We live in Manhattan so everything is a little jacked up anyway. If we wait until late fall when we move to the burbs I think it might be cheaper-- thoughts?
- They sell the car "as is" in terms of keys and they said it came with one key and no remotes ($~90 each). They will throw in two remotes if we buy the warranty but we will still have to buy an additional key which the finance dept claims is ~$2-250 b/c of the chip. My husband found a site to buy chip keys (uncut) online-- should we take that risk?
- Any recs for sites to buy bumper bullys or anything of the sort?
Any help would be great. Please no feedback about us getting screwed if that is your take on the price ;-) This is supposedly a "no-haggle" dealership so negotiating anything was next to impossible.
