Default Good deal on new 2003 WRX?

Hey all,

I posted this on the general NASIOC forum, but I think this might be a more relevant place...

I just got this quote from a Ron Price Motors in South San Francisco:

2003 WRX Sedan manual
Sonic Yellow w/rear spoiler
MSRP: $25,115
Invoice: $23,041
My Price: $21,612 + tax.lic.doc. Fee

I was originally going to wait for the MY2004, but at this price, I am willing to forget about the sunroof, cold weather package, and nicer seats. (Hell, I'll replace them with Sparcos!) I've known dealers are trying to get rid of 2003s, but frankly I didn't know they were dropping the prices this much.

I'm not a huge fan of Ron Price Motors (I don't necessarily dislike them, it's just that some of their sales people historically haven't always teeming with knowledge), but they are located just a few blocks from me and we get our Forester serviced from them.

What do you think?

Thanks,

Dave

That's a good price to be certain. R. Price get's a little better allocation based upon overall annual volume, plus a bit better hold-back. That would allow the under-invoice pricing. Also, Subaru has found the yellow to be a less than stellar seller.

From what I've heard in the grapevine, the '04 allocation is nearly sold-out, due to waiting lists at most shops. While the '04 has a lot of great features that the 02-03 don't, the huge difference in cash made the decision a no-brainer for me 2 weeks ago. BTW, in Reno, the best deal I could scrounge was about $500 under invoice, so you are getting a good deal.

Given the fact that if you throw another $5,000 at the car, you will have a rip-snortin' road-eater, it's a heck of a deal.

Yeah, it's still available, but only for loan terms of 24 months, I think. As I recall, 36 months is 1.9%, 48 months is 2.9%, and 60 months is 3.9%.

Anyway...took the car on a test drive, loved it, and loved the Sonic Yellow too. Can't believe this color hasn't sold more, but color is a subjective thing after all. And it has been hard to find one like this that doesn't come loaded with a bunch of useless options.

Hopefully I'll be signing paperwork tomorrow.

Dave

Thumbs up

Green Valley Subaru in Fairfield has a sonic yellow WAGON w/5 speed priced at 21595 on the window, and they'll probably go down a little farther. Give their internet guy a call (or PM Asian Ray AKA Broken Arrow on i-Club, he used to work there and can still get you the hook-up).

That sounds like a good deal. Ron P is alrite, that's where I got my rex from. In terms of service, they're really so-so but the salemen are willing to work the right $$$ for me back then. I guess they're ok as long as I get the price right. Good luck on your new rex. Late.

Default Got it!

Hey folks,

Just a brief update. Got my 2003 Sonic Yellow WRX a week ago. I dealt with Charles Goldfrit, Internet Sales Manager, from the beginning, and it was the smoothest transaction I have ever had on any car. His graciousness has extended beyond the sale, as he even offered to replace one of my door windows since I mentioned I found a minor scratch in it -- a week later!

I've dealt with all 3 Subaru dealers on this side of the bay, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly and quickly this transaction went. I know Carlsen gets most of the positive attention around here, but I'd like to just throw in my $0.02 and say don't forget about Mr. Goldfrit at Ron Price.

Thanks

Dave

I got my wagon from Charles. He's a good guy. And you got a great deal! Man, I wish they had these APR's when I bought.
