Default Need a good dealership to get our next subie.

What's up all. I haven't post anything for a long long time. Just got my twins boy and now I need an SUV instead of my wrx. Anyway, anyone have a good dealership that can suggest me to go to? I'm talking about best pricing and friendly services. I live in Olympia. Thanks in advance.
What: 2014 Forester XT Premium. If you let me know how much you got yours for that would be really cool too.
When: in two weeks


Thank you.

She works at Carter Subaru in Shoreline.
We bought our 03 WRX wagon from her. She contacted me after I posted a WTB thread saying she just got one from the original owner as a trade-in. The car was mint! The dealership worked with us on price, resprayed the bumpers due to fading, and gave us loaner cars when we had the car detailed. Even gave us a premium oil change b/c we had to keep driving the car back.

Hi there,

I got my 2009 WRX from Roy Robinson in Marysville brand new in 2009. My experience was excellent and I would certainly buy from them again. I got my WRX for an extremely good price. While my car was being delivered and detailed, my sales rep bought my whole family pizza while we waited. I recommend them with confidence. Good luck with your new purchase.

Dude!!! This is "Brock with da fur". Remember me? Hahaha nice to hear from you again man. My dealership where I bought mine isn't very friendly and hard to deal with. I don't like them very much. Even on the one I bought last time. Bad experience at Hanson Motors here in O-town.

I haven't bought a car from Chaplin's in Bellevue, but every time I've gone there for parts or for labor I can't do myself I've been treated better than anywhere else; my family included. If you're willing to drive that far north, pm me. I can try and get you in contact with someone who can get you a really solid deal.

I bought mine from Dennis at Mike Scarff in Auburn. Smooth buying experience and the service department has been super nice afterwards. So far they have fixed a door rattle, changed my oil and removed a rock that got stuck behind the dust shield and brake rotor, all for free.

I have never had that rock problem in 20 years of driving, I couldn't believe the racket that thing made.

Well, not local but I have had two friends in the past two months get new Subarus from my guy at CARR Subaru here in Beaverton (I have gotten two from him just myself). Online sales only, so you can do all the communication via email until the final purchase. Might be worth a look. PM me if you want his email address.

Haven't seen/heard from you in FOREVER! How have you been man? I think last I remember you were out of the country for a while. Good to hear you are still around.

I just purchased an Impreza Sport Premium from Carter, everyone there was very nice, and the whole experience was quite painless (except for the whole having a car payment part). I'd definitely recommend checking them out.

I got mine from Titus Tacoma. Awesome group over there. But I would wait a few more months. They usually have great incentives starting in July/August for winter. Free season pass up at the mountain, or a set if ski's or snowboard.

We've bought both our wrx and sti from walker's in renton.

They were willing to work with us using our ski instructor discount (basically at MSRP, no hassling) while most other dealers told is to get lost.

They rock.

Go there and look for the youngest sales person, they rarely put up a fight on price when they're still green... And be willing to walk away...

Subaru of Puyallup man! Can't get any better than them. Ask for Jon and tell him I sent you and he will hook you up man. Kevin is also a helpful person in the service department.

I went to Walkers when I bought my last Subaru some years back. It was a 2005 WRX. The salesman and his manager and I all agreed upon a price. Come to find out, when I went to process with finance, they tried to sneak by me paying an additional 4K! To say the least I was not happy. I was 19 at the time but very cautious in my approach and read absolutely everything in the paperwork.

I think the general concensus of the NWIC is to avoid Walkers

Test drove a used audi a3 at mikescaff subaru in auburn with the girlfriend and I felt people there are very upfront. The saleman let us test drive the car alone and gave us a no hassle price, which was well below $2k kbb. We thought about it and came back the next day but the car was sold to another couple after us.

I bought my 2011 wrx at subatu of pullalup and i wouldn't recommend that place either. But i wanted the swp hatch and it was the only one availalble on the west coast so succumbed to msrp. It was a month after the tsunami.

I've bought 4 Subarus from Gabe Scott, and Natecr has bought 2. I generally hate car salesman. This guy is easy to deal with, very laid back. Has always been open and honest with me. Prices are also always the lowest I can find.

I bought a 2006 2.5i, a 2010 VW Golf, and my 2013 WRX all from Chaplin's, worked with Todd every time. Great guy and a solid dealership with great employees in both sales and the customer support/service teams have always been fantastic. As long as I'm getting a Subaru or VW (or looking for something used on their lot) I'll be a lifetime customer.
