Smile VanBortel Subaru

Has anybody bought from VanBortel Subaru?
I just visited their web site- it looks almost too good to be true.
I spoke by landline with Patrice Everest- very accomadating- and she quoted me a price just under published invoice.

BTW, this is a fabulous forum. I have been following along for 2 months now. I used to drive an Audi S4 (2000)- very nice, but a frequent flier for body parts (snow is rough on the nose and sideskirts). The S4 is a great luxury sport sedan. After driving the wrx- oh my, oh my- something just feels that much more visceral.

Talking VanBortel Ssubaru

I have bought two Outbacks from VanBortel and currently have a WRX on order. They are a "no-dicker sticker" operation with truly dicsounted prices, unlike some where you just pay the full price, no dickering. I have been very pleased with both sales and service. I also have friends who have had particular problems taken care of by Kitty VanBortel (owner) herself. She is involved (not an absentee owner) and wants her customers to be satisfied.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the feedback.

I will be picking up my WRX wagon tomorrow. My salesperson is Patrice Everst, and the entire experience has been very nice.
The price policy is nothing short of lowest available(approx invoice). I logged onto DriveChicago.com, and found the internet equivalence of going from dealer to dealer, getting jerked around with price, and then hearing "ya know, that blue is a premium color, so there is a $1000 surcharge on top of msrp."
