Default Who is the cheapest Subaru dealer in the country

I'm about to buy a new 05 STi. I'll fly anywhere in the lower 48 to purchase it. What dealers should I look at? Who has 500 STi's (exageration) on their lot?

Are you referring to Van Bortel Subaru or Anchor Subaru by any chance?

Boy, I bet they'd be lick'n their chops if they know you're flyin' in. You arrive at the airport, take a taxi to the dealer, and then find the price is $500 more than you thought. What are you gonna do? Buy a walk-up one-way airfair ticket home that probably costs more than $500?

Do you have to get your Subaru serviced at the place you bought it? Say your alternator blows 6 months after you buy it. To get it replaced free can you go anywhere?

Warranty should be good at any dealership nation wide.

Best bet is to shop around your local dealers, plus some of the ones mentioned here. You may find just as a good a deal locally.

Correct, although some dealers give preferential service (appointments etc) to people who bought the car there.

I would try Irvine and Riverside in CA. Not too far from each other - and I hear great reviews of both dealers. I personally go to the Riverside branch for Car service - they are much nicer and quicker than anyone else. Irvine is usually busy and workers are slow.

Fitzmall is great. Got my 05 wrx from them, over $1000 cheaper than buying in town even with shipping from the East coast to NM.

VanBortel may sell a ton of cars, but they don't keep much stock - their lot is a lot smaller than you'd think - 50-60 cars at a time, tops, and I've only seen an sti on the lot twice.

And they don't negotiate. It is possible to get a better deal elsewhere.

Between plane tickets and gas for the ride home it might be cheaper to buy from a dealer close to you...

would it not be cheaper to just buy it locally? flying kinad costs money and with the possible price difference in the car it will probably end up being the same if you dont fly

You can get a 1 way Southwest ticket for about 100-200 bucks anywhere in the country. Or at least most major cities.

And plus by the time I get home it will be broken in. Don't worry, I'll be taking the back roads (alternating speed, rpm, etc).
