    Thanks for the warranty information. I worked through the Internet department at Chaplin's Automotive Group in Bellevue. Ray Pomerinke was the sales manager. Joe Spitz at Carter's Subaru had an equally competitive offer, but on a lesser desired configuration.

    I just purchased an '08 WRX with the Navigation & Satellite radio package. The model included the sport grille & body side moldings, subwoofer, auto dimming mirror/compass, and short throw shifter + 3 months free satellite radio. I also managed to get them to throw in 2 free oil changes, a $20 gas card, all weather floor mats, wheel locks, and a WRX keychain for free, we settled on $27k flat, got 3.9% financing through the dealership. I think I got a pretty sweet deal, anyone care to offer an opinion?

    Is it worth it to get any extended warranties?

    Four Door. Includes Sport Grille and Side Molding. $26,600....In NY.
    How did I do?

    Funny, I had 2 dealers said they couldn't have the car built and this one said "No Problem". I wonder which one is giving me run around.

    I got the premium + navi & satellite radio package for just $400 more ($27k flat), also included sport grille & body side moldings plus a few other things...but I am not in NY, I'm in AZ so I dunno how much of a difference that makes but I'm sure there's a regional difference...
  • tunatamertunatamer Posts: 3
    From what I see the nav isn't available with the auto tranny for some reason. Is this so? I live on Long Island so the manual is a royal pain in traffic. Been there. No fun...
  • terpfan30terpfan30 Posts: 7
    Oh ya, I never even looked for an automatic so I'm not really familiar with what's available w/anything but the manual's, but definitely, I think where you are you have to go auto...

    I am looking to buy an '08 Impreza with Premium package and the dealer gave me the following deal: "The MSRP on the vehicle is $20,303 and the dealer invoice cost is $19302 and you will receive a $2,281 discount for a final price of $18,022 plus sales tax for where you live".

    Is that a good deal comparable to others or is there more room for negotiation.

    This appears to be a good deal and the car has very good all around ratings.

    Impreza with Premium Package & VDC

    How does this rate for a deal in Colorado? This is direct from the dealer.

    The MSRP on the vehicle is $20,303 and the dealer invoice cost is $19302 and you will receive a $2,281 discount for a final price of $18,022 plus sales tax for where you live

    "2,281 discount for a final price of $18,022 " definitely is a great price. The dealer gives you the invoice price, marketing rebate ($500), full tank of gas, and the dealer hold back.
    Hope you can get it.

    Sounds good to me. The Premium package is a bargain.

    Do you know that the lease residuals with the Premium package are higher (as a %) than they would be without it?

    It's like you can't afford not to get it. Go for it.

    Hi all, I just leased a silver WRX over the weekend. The price was $21900 plus acquisition fee and etc... MSRP was a little bit over 26000. It's a 2 yr and 12k miles lease. I pay $340 a month.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Congrats. Now the tough wait for the 1000 mile break-in period to end so you can enjoy that engine...
  • dwz75dwz75 Posts: 2
    Thanks, I'm new to stick too. Gonna baby it! :)

    I bought a new 2008 2.5i sedan w/ premium package + sport grill MSRP-19,598, paid 16,598 w/ zero % for 24 months.

  • backybacky Twin CitiesPosts: 18,906
    That is great, which dealership and city, please?
  • msolomonsmsolomons Posts: 10
    The MSRP on the 4 door sedan standard transmission WRX with the premium package is $26,350. We just received a quote for $300/month with $2000 down for 36 months and 12,000/year, not including tax and registration It seems to be a good rate but I'd like some validation; I know that Subaru is offering incentives this month on many of their cars.

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

  • Hi Darius -

    I'm in Seattle - looking for a WRX with PREM - Manual.

    Going to check out the guys you mentioned and try to get a similar deal, thanks for sharing!

    I was looking at buying a used Impreza. I have been looking at the 99-2000 range for years, but would be open to any suggestions on a good model year. I want the 2.2L for reliability, andcould go either way on the turbo. Could I just put some bolt on performance parts on a non turbo and even come close to the turbo's performance? My parents aren't so crazy about the turbo (first car, higher insurance, etc.). Also, could go either way on transmissions. It wold be used mostly incity driving, but I wouldn't consider it "stop and go" I know in most cases on used cars manuals are more reliable because they are less sensitive to maintanience. Anyway, since it is my first car, reliability is extremely important, and I know subie's are known for that. How many miles can I expect out of it and how much canI expect to pay for it?
    Thanks for your input and sorry for the long post
  • Is there a current rebate for the 2008 Impreza WRX? From forum posters it sounded like there was - but on Edmunds all other models except the impreza have a rebate posted. Was that an oversight?

    How much and I am assuming it can be applied for Lease Purchases.

    Thank You.

    Just got this on Saturday... sedan with manual transmission, premium pkg, and a few port installed options..

    Total MSRP = $19,996

    Selling price = $17,681

    24mo/30K lease

    Cap cost = $18,276 (selling price + $595 acq.fee)

    Residual 67%

    Money factor .00085

    Payment = $231/mo. + tax

    $ZERO due at signing.. so, just 23 payments of $244

    Hope this helps!

    Working on a deal. I have on the table a new Impreza 2.5i Wagon Premium Package

    MSRP 19648

    Price 16298

    Plus 150 over TMV's outstanding value on my trade.

    Add in 3.9 for 60 months, how couldn't I?
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    16 and change for a premium package?

    Call the cops, you robbed them ;) .

  • gazingwagazingwa Posts: 4
    Actually.... they tried to rob me, after asking repeatedly is that for the premium package.... yes....

    Well they were going to transfer the car for me (i wanted black interior) sooooo they said what city they were going to get it from, I got online and that dealer they were going to didn't have a premium 5dr black interior in stock. only base models, I called my dealer back and asked for the vin for my insurance, they gave it to me... sure enough, not premium. I confronted them they ran around and came back, well there was some confusion. you had said once that you didn't HAVE to have the premium package..... anyways this is the best we can do on a regular 2.5 wagon.... needless to say sounds a bit bait and switch to me, so no impreza for me, i'll stick with the good old 2006 sonata (I just hate my light grey interior, i spend soooo much time keeping it clean)

    FYI the Stealer that tried to pull this was Annapolis Subaru

    Glad i checked online before I drove 1.5hrs to get there

    If you follow the link that I provided they have the premium package sedan + grill for 16,997. Just go from there.
    I went to several dealers with this ad and got a couple more hundred bucks off the price. If a dealer won’t let you leave ask them what are they scared of. If they are truly providing the lowest price then their competitors will not be able to beat it by a significant amount (several hundred). If they still won’t let you leave then you’re not getting the best price.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Sounds about right.
  • Hello,
    We just got quoted $19,399 for an auto 08 Sube Impreza 5 door 2.5i w/ premium, & side door moldings. There's a $500 rebate so the "sale" price they're quoting us is $18,899. The competing dealer says he can't get his hands on one for us at we don't really have anything to compare it to or negotiate against.

    KBB says invoice is $18,743.00 (not counting molding). Edmunds says invoice is $18,551 (with molding). TMV is $18,826

    Do we need to haggle further? Sounds like we're good? Esp. with 3.9 for 63 months.

    In advance, thanks for any advice!

  • PS - Ateixeira --It's me, Hub Cap girl. Looks like we're going to have two Imprezas in the garage. Your hub caps are still in place and looking nice on my '97.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 64,696
    I just bought a 2.5 sedan with premium package... selling price was $2300 under MSRP, including all rebates... That is also what they are quoting in the newspaper advertisments around here...

    What is the MSRP on the car you are shopping?
