Question What did you guys pay for your WRX?

Just wondering what you guys paid for your sedans.

I am looking at a totally base WRX ... I mean, are they easy to find? I found a couple this summer but right now all the WRX I see at dealers have all these silly options. No spooiler, no security, just base and the 5spd. That's it. I want to change everything else, so why pay for it?

edmunds.com says 23,359 is a fair price, now just wondering if I can get that price or close to it. ANy suggestions GREATLY appreciated ... maybe there should be a HOW TO GET A WRX FOR CHEAP thread for people like me...

LAYT

This has been absolutely beat to death here.

Bottom line, if you pay more than $500 over invoice, you've been robbed.

thanks for the info.

I've read here and there that 500-700 over invoice is expected. But why are subaru's going for so close to invoice? Is there a quality issue with subaru or is it that way with most cars? I really really hate buying cars and dealing with dealers, I always get mistreated so I end up walking out all pissed off. Oh well. Tanks for the info!

I'm picking up a Forester next week, $100 over invoice. It's the economy. They still get about $650 for the holdback, so it's not a loss by any stretch.

Ordered mine about 21 months ago as no one around here had a Wagon, only 1 Sedan. I basically used Edmunds and these sites to determine price / invoice. I went to the dealer and told them that I would pay $500 over the invoice I had. My local dealer said "No" and wanted $1,000 over retail so I said "bye". I went 20 miles up the road and did the same thing and they said "$1000" over invoice and I said "no". I called the dealers in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Ga and got "no". Next day, the dealer up the road called and said $750 over invoice and I said I would drive to Maryland/Va (Fredrickburg AutoMall?) if necessary to save the money. They said come sign the papers and I did. My wife was looking forward to a weekend in Va so it cost me another $250 on her weekend out of town anyway.

Just tell them what you will pay. People here say the $300 over invoice is doable, then tell them what you will pay. If they say "no", move on...life is TOO SHORT to deal with this crap especially when you have internet info.

I hear ya

My plan is to walk in, do a test drive and then ask for their best price. It won't be what I want, and then I will say no, and pull out $11,750 cash and a document supporting a loan for $14,000 and say I want this price and that car is sold right now, no hassle or I walk. Period. I'm waiting till MY04 now, screw them.

I heard Alla Cott Subaru in OHIO sells resonable,

$24,100 out the door for mine!


here is how i bought the car.....


called my credit union for financing, this eliminates the need for dealer financing....

anyone who has recently bought a car will tell you, deler financing is highway robbery.... the dealer initially quoted me 20%, and my bank got me 5%

once my bank approved the loan, i was basically a cash buyer because i already had the money from the bank, so i called 2 dealerships here in town and told both of them exactly what i wanted, that i was a cash buyer, and that another dealership has been called regarding the same car etc etc

i ended the call by saying the first dealership to give me the best deal gets my business

thats it.... you gotta make the dealer fight for your biz... i happened to have this dealer here in Phoenix who didnt wanna lose my business to the other guy, so he gave me the car for under invoice, which is why i only paid $24,100 out the door



good luck

MSRP was 25,314 - out the door 24161.

Yeah, coulda done better, especially in a larger city.

Small to mid-size markets gouge more, is my experience, but - I wanted the car, color was right, etc.

If you want a WRX, just wait until the STi is being sold. They will be much more available, and much cheaper at the dealers who are still holding out for more bucks.

People should only post the price of the car, no taxes, registration fees, etc.

That said, the best way to get dealers to fight for you is to email the "internet salesman". I got them down to $50 over invoice, and another dealership $100 over. I went with that one as they are much closer.

sales tax and other such additional charges are actually pretty important...

originally i got two quotes:

100 over invoice, no additional fees, 7.25% sales tax, $25,179
0 over invoice, 150 advertising fee, 8.25% sales tax, $25,401

i took these both to my local dealer, and this is what he gave me:

250 over invoice, no additional fees, 6.25% sales tax, $25,050

the car i ended up with is a silver my03 sedan from my local dealer with spoiler, armrest extension, security system, and autodim mirror for 23,577, but because the tax is so much less, i ended up spending 350 dollars less than the 0 over invoice quote at 8.25% and 125 dollars less than 100 over invoice w/no fees.
