2013 and earlier-Subaru Outback Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    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.
  • Hi All,

    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.
  • dmuzykadmuzyka Posts: 31
    Don't be blown away. It was the 2.5...

    Followup on my ordering process...

    I planned to self-install an aftermarket hitch, but I talked myself into the OEM tow hitch (non-OEM hitch invalidates warranty) and got it for +$400, so total will be 33,900 (no TTL).
    Some dealers want over $800 for the hitch + installation. Tow hitch MSRP = $557 ~ Remote start MSRP = $450

    It basically worked out to over $5,000 off MSRP (over $2700 below dealer cost).

    2014 Outback 3.6R Limited SAP + hitch + remote start, for under 34K is a great deal.
    Note: This took me weeks of research, and hours of negotiating.
  • rocker1584rocker1584 Posts: 12
    Actually, 2300+ below dealer cost would be more accurate. Not 2700.
    Sorry for the misinformation :confuse: :blush:

    32750 + 1500 tax... including navi, moonroof, mats, splashguard, rear seat protector, puddle lights, mirror with homelink, rear camera, bumper cover, keyless start, usb, bluetoth
    Does that price sounds OK?

    32K would be a better deal, IMO, if you go with the 13. Just gotta squeeze the right dealer. The 14s are hitting lots now.

    I ordered a 14 3.6R Limited + SAP (which has EyeSight, unlike the 13) + remote start and hitch for not much more than that.

    Things to take into account with the 13 SAP: No EyeSight, slightly more depreciation than the 14, and in your case no remote start or hitch. I would spend the extra grand or so and get the 14.

    Here's the same thing that I ordered ~ 14 3.6R Limited SAP (Deep Indigo):
  • Problem is this is the only one in state and dealer took it off inventory so no other dealership can bid on it.
  • Also I plan to keep it until it's dead just like my last car and I don't want eyesight... kind of like to have full control of the car even if I crash god forbid...

    Just order one from whatever dealer (in or out of state) can do it the cheapest, and just wait the 6-8 weeks for it to be delivered. This way you get exactly what you want for a good price.

    If you want the 13 then 32K should be doable on what you described.

    Pays to be patient :)

    End of May got a 3.6r Limited w/moon roof (and weather package), side molding, puddle lights, and stuff like bumper protector and back of rear seat protector. Had a mirror with a compass put on. No Nav, SAP or Eyesight. The 2014 were on the way. $31,000 plus TTL.

    Subaru sent out a $500 coupon today to folks who (I guess) inquired about Outbacks recently. Good until July 1.

    You are correct, my purchase was a 2013 Outback, except for the model year mistake, other facts were correct. By the time I realized my mistake, it was too late to correct it.

    I've had the car about 6 weeks now and absolutely love it. Only complaint is the nav system which is really poor, but I knew that going in. I use the nav on my android phone which is super. Getting about 22 MPG around town, no long trips yet. 6 cylinder engine is great on hills, passing, or merging onto freeways. Also like the chocolate brown leather, keyless entry and memory seats for driver.
  • rocker1584rocker1584 Posts: 12
    Thanks for clearing that up.

    I've heard that the Navigation system is quite poor. That's a shame. Hopefully it can be corrected with future firmware updates or something.

    The beauty of the 13 is that you can drive it, while I'm stuck waiting in anticipation :cry:

    Something to note about EyeSight is that some insurance companies will take around 20% off if you have it, so it might pay off in savings. Even if you don't use it, it's there if you ever decide to.

    In any case, if it's enabled and you're driving properly, you won't really notice that it's there (except in an emergency situation, in which case it could be of great use).

    I'm mostly interested in the convenience of adaptive cruise though.

  • I got the exact same car but in graphite gray for $26000 in may 2013. Now that 2014s have come, you could probably go a bit down. It also depends on the inventory the dealer has and the preference of color. When I was looking for a car there were a very few graphite grays around from the dealer I had bought and I was fixed on the color choice.
  • Within the last six months, the ride quality of our Premium Outback with less than 28,000 miles seems to have changed during city driving. My rear seat passenger complains about the roughness of the ride and I have to agree, even from front seats. I would never have purchased the car with this kind of ride.

    The dealer checked the car out and lowered the tire pressure but otherwise said they detected no problem. I plan on bringing it back in. Has anyone else had a problem?

    Might have better luck posting in another thread...this one is for prices paid, etc, not maint issues......

    Have to agree with godeacs on that one! Mostly likely, though, your stock tires are ready to be replaced. You'll be amazed at the difference quality rubber will make on your car's ride! ;-)

    Is this a good deal? The car less than 4k miles on it. It was bought new in August 2012 for $32,700. It has the rearview camera, moon roof, heated leather seats, upgraded speakers, remote start, mud flaps, and the 7 yr/70k mile Gold Plus service contract. Carfax checks out. Clear title. It seems like a good deal to me, but I want to hear other opinions. Thanks.
