Assuming you mean a 2.5i Ltd... That is a decent price compared to when I last checked in 2005.

23k for a 2.5i is decent; have you looked at an 06 GT? For a couple of grand more for the 06, I think it would be well worth it.

This poll is silly.

If you want opinions on a local dealer, post this in Tri-State.

Nah, my guess is more like 2-3 years; remember those same analysts predicted $3/gal at the end of this year; they may be educated, but they can't predict the future

Anyway, if VW brings over their twin-charged Golf, that maybe something worth looking into in addition to looking into a TDI.

David,

Thanks. Is it for sedan?

Maybe the east coast quote is a bit higher? Will the price differ from region to region?

It does vary from region to region; your best bet is to shop at more than those two dealerships. Maybe if you drive 30 minutes more you'll hit a dealership that is willing to sell for less than the 23k you were quoted.

I would try edmunds.com and have them email the different dealerships around your area and most of them will email you a quote for the model/options/color (sometimes) that you want. Or go to third or fourth dealership and see what they offer; casually mention what you were quoted and odds are high they'll be willing to undercut that price.

Our family got our 04 Mazda MPV LX for 19k (list is 24k) going through the internet sales dept. at one dealer a couple of years ago.

Also, it is November so a lot of dealerships are clearing out their 06 models; what does the 07 Legacy's have that the 06's don't? Is it really worth paying more for the 07 model?

It is a sedan and I live in the Washington DC area where everything is expensive. Got quoted 26,707 on a 07 LGT auto ( no manuals avail.)

07 has split rear seats (sedan), electroluminescent gauges, and a few other small things. Worth getting the 07 for me, but if you can find an 06 it will be dirt cheap

hey man,

I work in car sales from time to time and i'll tell you what you need to do. Go in to the dealer ship and ask a sales men to see the invoice. Make sure the invoice has 2 sets of prices on it. one msrp one invoice. If you offer them 500 to 1000 bucks over invoice and stick to it and don't budge through all the bull they'll toss at you. you should be able to get it for that.

if the dealer ship refuses to show you an invoice for the car, or the invoice only has msrp prices on it then tell them to jump off a bridge and leave.

if you have any other questions feel free to ask

Good advice, but a good strategy is to play multiple dealers off eachother. Get invoice prices from several, see which is the lowest. Also search on the net, lots of good info. http://cars101.com has lots of Subbie purchasing info.

Frankly $1K over invoice seems a lot to me on a 2.5i; shoot for invoice price

that's good advice unless there are incentives/rebates. sometimes there are dealer/customer rebates which lower the dealer cost well below invoice pricing.

I bought a brand new 05 LGT Limited for $23,000, msrp was $30,5xx, invoice pricing was around $27800. It was a left over 05 model (purchased 3/28/06) and 06's were already on the lot.

I would take a turbo and bigger brakes over stupid electro-whatever gauges anyday leftover 06's FTW anyone?

wow, that's a great price!

Anyone knows what's brand for the tires of legacy 2.5i limited sedan? It should come with all season tires, right?

what kind of roadside services do I get from the warranty? I read about what's on Subaru website-they seem little to offer for roadside assistance.

Anything I could ask from the dealer when I negotiate the car?

Any thoughts/experiences? Thanks!

I think they still use potenza RE-92's, just like the Legacy GT's.

To answer your other question, I think you could negotiate with them on an extended warranty; those usually come with some sort of roadside assistance program. It depends on the dealer as they could use different third parties to contract the work out.

Actually, after you knocked them around with the price, that's probably the next thing they'll try to tack onto the invoice. To be honest, our minivan has a 6 year warranty on it (first new car, heh) and we get a lot of resistance if we try to get anything done through the extended warranty. Though it's sorta half-paid for itself when I dented one of the rims and gouged out the tire and had a new tire/wheel put in (reluctantly I might add, even though our extended warranty specifically covered road-side hazards for the wheels and tires)

YMMV.
