Thumbs up Where is a good Subaru dealer in WA?

Does anybody know out of experience who is a good dealer? I went to the one on South Tacoma Way and took a test drive with an RS. After the drive the guy started telling me all these lies about how the WRX will not be all that great and that I should just buy the RS now because they will be really hard to get later. I don't think the guy knew much about the WRX at all.

Needless to say the guy made me mad and I will not deal with him or maybe even that dealership. So had anybody had a good experience with a Sube dealer? If so which ones?

Well if you don't mind driving up to Seattle, Carter Subaru is about the best. Joe Spitz is an excellent salesman. Check Subie Gals last post in the thread "ok guys...so I got the car." I believe Kimbie just bought her RS at Carter as well. I also bought my car at Carter.

If you are looking at getting a WRX talk to Joe. Check out his webpage at www.cars101.com . He is very knowledgeable and will make your car buying experience totally hassle free.

Look at that, I sound like an advertisement

he re's a map

Ah, **** it, I don't know why it has "he re's" instead of "here's" but it won't let me remove the space. But the link still works.

The one on South Tacoma way is Titus Tacoma Subaru. I bought my RS there and they were friendly. The parts department is very cool.
I didn't deal with their sales people though. www.autoadvisor.com

I went to Walkers Renton Subaru the other day and this one guy had slides and all this promotional **** on the WRX. Sweet.

Hmm. I got mine a couple of weeks ago from Paul at Carter. He was pretty cool.
Titus Tacoma Subaru.. that's also known as www.subaruparts.com's home.
The one in Oly is ok I guess, but their service/parts isn't open on weekends. blah.

Which salesperson at Tacoma Subaru did you talk with? I bought my RS from Tom Reese, nice guy. Did try the hig pressure sales tatics but I just walked, and amzingly enough by the time I got home there was a message waiting for me asking me to come back that they would deal, I finally got my 02 RS for a little over 2% over invoice.

I don't remember the guys name. I really just wanted to take a look at the car and not even drive it. He insisted that I take the car for a ride so I thought that was nice. He was really great until we got back from the test drive. He seemed like he was mad because I did not want to look into how much it would cost me.

I told him I wanted 5 speed, sedan and they didn't have any. So he goes back to talk to his superiors and comes back and tells me that I should buy it now because, get this, "the wrx that comes out in march will not be available in a sedan, and many of the RS's will be very hard to find". So he really suggested that I buy the Automatic RS while they still had them. Right then I figured this guy is a little confused or something! So I left. He gave it a nice try, I guess.
