Post Vancouver area, any good dealers???

I`ve always loved subaru, and now that the turbo is comming I`m looking to put a down payment on one soon. But the dealers in the area seem really dumb! Anyone know of a good dealer or good salesman in the lower mainland. Any info is appreciated.

Thumbs up

There are three dealerships in Vancouver - Don Docksteader in Vancouver, Richmond Subaru Suzuki in Richmond, and Specialty Motorcars in North Vancouver.

My cousin bought an SVX from Specialty a few years ago, and they have treated him well, so he suggested them to me. He was right, and that's why I bought my car from them.

I got my RS at Richmond Subaru... the owner is connected with everyone well that's what a guy from Eurosport told me a few weeks ago.
Anyway, I think I got a pretty good deal from him, check him out.

Thanks for the info guys. I`ve been to Docksteader, and I`m not buying it from them. I was looking around the showroom for about half an hour and got zero attention, so sc**w them. And it was Richmond were I knew more than the salesman. I haven`t been to Specialty yet, so that will be my next ADVENTURE. If that doesn`t work I`ll try Gary in Richmond. Thanks again!

Yeah, it's pretty well much about who you know. I agree with scoobie -- everyone's out to make a buck.

Don't be surprized if you know more about the RS than the sales person -- take whatever they say with a grain of salt. You can always come back and check here. Almost all of us are owners, and we know our cars!

Gary is a family friend... I know he didn't rip me off, no one could match his offer to me...
Don't talk to the salesmen, talk to Gary.
