Question about promotional financing

Does anyone know if there is a manufacture-to-dealer that the dealer loses if a buyer elects the 0% Subaru advertises?

Trying to figure out if the dealers will try to increase the sales price if you want to go the 0% route...

Thanks in advance!

    No purchase incentives for the 2021 Ascent.

    Just 0% financing for up to 60 months.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!

    Michaell - do you know if the dealer loses any sort of manufacture-to-dealer incentive when a customer chooses 0% financing? I know this is the case for some manufacturers with promotional financing and the dealers "try" to pass the lost incentive onto the customer by increasing the sales price - that's really the part I am curious about with Subaru.

    I don't see any factory-to-dealer incentives on the Ascent, so nothing for them to lose if you choose 0%.

    It's always possible that the dealer can "participate" in any bumped up APR that they get you to agree to.

    While there is no "incentive" to lose, it's imperative that you make clear your intention to use the special financing, when beginning negotiations. You might find that you've negotiated a price that they'll only honor if you agree to 4%-5% finance rates (which SMF would compensate them for)

    This is interesting to me because seldom has payment method ever come up for while negotiating price. I guess I'd be pretty surprised/annoyed if I ever go the end of the process and decided to pay cash and was told they couldn't honor a price unless I financed with them.

    I received an email from Subaru of America about a $1,000 pre paid Visa gift card promo on the purchase of a new Ascent. Does any know if that is combinable with the 0% APR offer?
