Default Ordering Impreza 2013

Hi guys, I stumble with this forum researching on the Imprezas, ever since "snowmageddon" in the NE, I made a promise to myself that the next car I make payments on it was going to be Subaru. I finally got all my ducks in a row, I ordered a 2013 Impreza limited 4 door. The car had to be ordered, I ordered from the dealer on 9/8/12, the dealer said 6 to 8 weeks, now they just sent me an email that states that Subaru is saying December!! : (
I would appreciate some some inputs

I ordered mine on 7/16/12 and Subaru accepted it on 8/4/12 (when ordering formally opend for the '13's). I just contacted them and they tell me I'm on the November invoice for delivery to the dealer.

Just note your VON (Vehicle Order Number) in the email. If you don’t have one, be sure to share all your pertinent info including the dealer you placed the order through. When my odered was placed with Subaru I had the dealer provide me a copy of the order. It has the VON, and was a double-check to ensure the order was correct.

Here's the respone I got from Subaru:

That's a good idea. Can SoA give you your VON? I don't have mine and I'm thinking of contacting them to try and find out some more info.

It's getting colder out, and riding my bike to and from work is going to be harder and harder. The dealer promised me a loaner for a couple weeks so I'm really anxious, especially with others already getting '13's. I'm going on 8 weeks now, so hopefully the end is near!

I’m not certain, but it’s worth a try. I had my dealer send me a PDF of the order as submitted to Subaru. For me, it was to verify the order was correct. Also, having the VON lets you track the order directly with Subaru avoiding the dealer altogether.

I had a deposit on a XV and every other day I would check the dealers website inventory on the Imprezas for *****s and giggles when I saw a 2012 DGM Sport Limited with all the options I wanted already installed at Port so I called my dealer back to confirm the car was in inventory and I jumped on it and took delivery at the end of July. Nice little break on insurance since the 2013s were due to arrive in a month or so...

I just ordered mine as well. Being in So Cal there arn't any limited wrx models anywhere so I had to order mine. Dealer said 8-10 weeks on mine as well, but I'm not holding my breath.

Ordering a Subaru is a long wait. I tried it, ordered a 12', waited 8 weeks and they ordered me the wrong color. Thank god I got lucky and went to my local dealer last month, they had the exact one that i wanted in stock. I got it without waiting for another 8 weeks. I thought this only apply to the 5 doors, I didn't know the wait period is the same for 4 doors. Sometime I question why I need to wait 8 week for a economy car? Similar cars like the Civic, Mazda3 and Focus are everywhere.

But it's a great car, so it's worth the wait. Good luck!

I've noticed this. I think it takes a little longer than you expect to shift from R to D and vice-versa.

It's normal, just give it a second or two before hitting the gas.

What dealer did you go to? I ordered mine from Grand Subaru. They seem to want to help me. However, with the amount of time most people have been waiting I'm starting to get angry. This is the first time in a long time I've been without a car (sold my Saab in August), and I took the dealer at their word that my car would arrive in the timeframe they gave me (6-8 weeks) - because now I'm forced to ride my TREK to work because the only way I could get close to the blue book value of my Saab was to sell it privately...

We went to Maple Hill in Kzoo (which is kind of a long story). They originally said 6-8 wks after the order went in but when I called them later to bug them, they admitted it would be probably November. Luckily we have 2 cars which we are keeping so I am not without a car in the meantime.

I really feel for everyone who is waiting. I just cannot believe it takes so long to get an Impreza built and shipped! This is my very first Subaru and I am so excited but this wait is horrendous. I actually started looking in the early spring but couldnt find a white Impreza Sport anywhere and had to wait until the '13 ordering opened up.

Just called again today. Dealer told me to call back on the 10th and 20th, as that's when Subaru updates the system.

SO MAD. I was told 6-8 weeks... I've been without ANY car for 6 weeks now. It will be at LEAST 2-3 more weeks until I get my Subaru because that's how long it takes to ship from Japan.

This is ridiculous. Completely and utterly ridiculous.

Default Fair Price?

Just ordered a 2013 MT Sport Premium with price of 21,150+ttr from my local dealer. Should be here in 8-10 weeks but that doesn't bother me. Very excited to be getting a new car after being carless for a couple years and so glad I found this forum! It's really helped me in deciding what to buy

Does the price seem fair? Options were side nets, cargo tray, mirror with compass, all weather mats, rear seat protectors and bumper appliqué. Essentially pop. package #1 but without the homelink mirror. Per Edmunds that's about fair market value but maybe I should shop around more. Dealer said I could cancel for any reason and I haven't yet dropped off my deposit.

Is 20k a good price for a sport premium 5sp in NorCal? I tend to thing location matters for some deals so I wanted to get some input as to what deals people in California are getting these days. Most posts I see with prices are outside CA.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Sounds like a great price to me, but I don't live in California. I paid MSRP cuz the dealer insisted that they can get MSRP cuz they are selling so fast that even there employees don't get much of a break. My base price for my sport premium 5spd is $21,565 (MSRP) and includes shipping $770 and $300 for pzev, but not tax. However, my cousin works for the dealer and did get me a hookup on accessories! If it was me I would take the deal for 20k if it includes the shipping and pzev price included. I assume that number is before tax. Maybe a member from California can chime in and say what deal he got. Is it a 2012 or 2013?
