Well, lesson learned......

The reason I am REFINANCING is because the APR's too high and I DON'T WANT the extended warranty. Why did I get it in the first place, you may ask? Dino, the finance manager, at Schaumburg Subaru gave me this ridiculous monthly payment at first with what I think now as more than 16% APR. Now, my credit history isn't prestine but it's not THAT crappy either. Then he started saying how APR would be lowered if I got the extended warranty. Infact, my monthyl payment went down quite a bit after getting the extended warranty but it's ONLY BECAUSE it started out so damn high.
Like I said before, I DON'T WANT ANY EXTENDED WARRANTY!!!
I've been approved for several single digit APR loans so I am going to pay off the car with that.

Doing so will provide me with:
1. Lower APR = Lower monthly payment
2. No exteneded (don't care) = No $1600 added payment to worry about (care very much!)

and yes, I know it's my fault... but I am trying to make better of it as much as I can. I didn't have this kind of problem when I purchased my Eclipse.

Doug:

Sounds like you are doing the right thing. It's unfortunate that you had to learn this like you did, but now you'll know better next time.

Interesting thing that it's SoS, too. Some people around here just love them, and as I understand Leatha (a salesperson) up there is quite good. However, it seems like anyone that doesn't deal with Leatha comes out ticked off at the treatment that they got. Usually one salesperson doesn't make that big of a difference, especially if the management's mentality is to take people for everything they can get.

Oh, and I will say this...while there are definitely a large percentage of car dealerships and salespeople that are below scum on the evolutionary ladder, there are also some out there that are truly decent to deal with. Much as is the case elsewhere, it's a bit unfair to paint all car dealers and salespeople with the same brush.... (Doug, I know you didn't say this, but the sentiment was expressed earlier.)

I hope you enjoy your car...that's the most important thing!

I think your first mistake was going to the dealership in dire need of a car. I'm glad to hear you didn't tell them that, though... that would be like saying, "I'm going to bend over now." At least you're smart enough to try and turn a bad deal into a better one. Alot of folks would just take it and figure they couldn't do better.

For others who are thinking about buying a car, learn something from Doug's experience. Don't walk into a dealership thinking you have to walk out with a car. I actually did the same thing once and got seriously screwed over (on price, though, not on financing). Do your research before hand so you know what you want, and how much you should pay for it. If the first place you go doesn't have what you want, or wants you to pay more for it, then go somewhere else. If anything seems fishy with the financing, go somewhere else. If you don't like the way the salesperson is treating you, go somewhere else. If the coffee is stale, go somewhere else See a pattern here?

I mentioined this before but by no means I am talking trash about everyone at the dealer. The salesperson I dealt with, Tom Carney, was very nice and I would recommend anyone to go talk to him. I personally had no experience with Leatha. I just don't like the finanace department and how they set my financing options up so that I get screwed either way.

By the way, I went to that car buying tip web site and it was really helpful. I wish I found that site earlier.

Talking better than average at Don Miller

Maybe my experience is out of the ordinary, but I got my 2002 RS from Don Miller Subaru in Madison, and they were totally decent. I submitted my financing application and they shopped it around to about 8-10 local banks and found me a great APR - great considering my own bank gave me a quote of 2 whole points higher the previous week.

I wasn't forced into the extended warranty, but was just presented it by the finance manager when I was signing. Like a fool I signed on, but when I got home and changed my mind, they had no problem removing the warranty 4 weeks after I bought the car.

Damn.. That's a lot... Did you get an Auto/Sedan??? I got a 5spd Wagon Loaded for $25,000 out the door.. I paid "Edmunds Market Value" too.. I could have gotten it cheaper but I didn't feel like negotiating. You paid a lot for that... I am really beginning to dislike SoS... What a bunch of spanks... Dougeefresh, you should be upset with your salesmen. Chances are he orchestrated the deal to rip you off. Let them know your upset.. I know most dealers in nature are pond scum, but there are some decent dealers out there.. (woodfield acura, Roto Subaru, woodfield lexus)... It's ashamed that the Schuamburg Toyota's, Chevy's and Subaru's of the world are ripping every body off. -Sean

I wasn't totally get screwed though. Everything was going good until I got the APR which was astronomically high.
Dealer didn't know I needed the car bad because I never told'em.
I bought $26300 (with several options that I was going to get anyway...) sticker for $27000 out the door (not counting that damn extended warranty.) Is that still so bad?

I am refinancing this week to pay them off and get rid of extended warranty.
Thanks for all the advise guys.

For your info, I have 90 days to cancel my extended warranty to get a full refund and I have to do it at the dealer I bought my car from. This information is directly from SOA.

Well, I don't know what your definition of 'Loaded' means. It would be helpful if you can describe your options in more detail.
I have a sedan which is $500 more to start, compass mirror, premium sound pkg 1, rear spoiler, turbo gauge, upgraded secutrity system, alloy wheel lock and armrest extension which add up to around $26200.

and no, I am not upset with the salesman. He was courteous and I didn't sense like he was pushing me into buying the car.
Like I said, I have no problem with the sales, it's the finance dept. that pisses me off. I know I didn't get the world's best deal and I am sure I can squeeze more discount out of them if I sat there for another 3 hours but I wasn't willing to do that. Sure, I've seen people paying less, but I don't think getting $26200 sticker car for $27000 out-the-door is a rip-off.

Now, if I can only cancel that extended warranty......

You should be able to cancel the extended warranty. Every one that has ever been offered to me has had a grace period of the length of the factory warranty to get a refund. You should have a couple of years to decide if the warranty is in your best interest. In the mean time the warranty providers are collecting interest on your money. No real biggie. If the car starts spitting parts or you plan to drive the heck out of the thing the option of an extended warranty may be worth it until then.

HEY!!!
I am in Madison as well. I am dealing with Floyd and Dan Carr (the manager). We should get together some time, esp if you have some mods - I am curious as to some of their value. Email me if you want to get together some time.

I don't think it's possible to buy a sedan with the same options I listed for 24K OUT-THE-DOOR price. That would make your car price below 22K which is WAY below dealers invoice. I hope you mean 24K for the car which still is a good price...

Loaded means every available Subaru factory option. (excluding the aftermarket like gauges, etc).. I also got the Short Throw shifter.. Did you get an automatic or manual? I know you didn't get the worlds best deal, but from the looks of it, you have paid the most for a WRX then everyone I've talked too.. On top of that, I have heard nothing but horror stories from SoS.. I am so glad I didn't buy mine from them! From the sound of it, you paid right around sticker... I guess it could be worse...

Let's do the math. I clearly stated that the STICKER was $26200 and OTD was $27000. Sticker price of $26200 + salestax (8.0%) + Doc. fee($50.48) & title fee($80).

26200 x 1.08 = 28296
28296 + 50.48 + 80 = $28426.48

I paid $27000 for $28426.48 which would be about $1850 less than I have paid if I paid sticker.

Also what does 'every available Subaru factory option (excluding aftermarket)' mean? There are like 20 or more options available from Subaru. You get all that and the cost goes way over $30000. There is no difference between Suabru Factory Options and aftermarket options. Option is option, something you PAY EXTRA to have on your car. In WRX sedan's case, any sticker price that is over $23950 MSRP contains extra options you have to PAY to get.

Um... maybe you are seeing something that I am not... Where did you get this '6 options' from? If you read my previous post correctly, it clearly states 20 OR MORe OPTIONS!
I just went to SUBARU site and they got more than 25 options there.

If you are talking about CD Changers and alike(AC, power locks, etc.), those are not considered as options since you cannot pay less to not have those features.

Ok, if you don't count the convienence groups and such, there are at most 10-12 options.. This is from edmunds.com, if you get the convienence groups, theres only like 6 things you can order. I got Popular Equipment Group 2 (auto dimming mirror/compass, security system), Popular Equipment Group 3A (cargo net, air filter, armrest), rear bumper cover and Stereo system upgrade (orginally ordered the sub but they canceled it).. The only Equipment group I didn't get was 5... I think that was for like floor mats and stuff... Maybe there is more...

Finally got a loan for refinancing today... Whew... and also drove 1.5 hours from Evanston to Schaumburg Subaru to have the intercooler replaced and rust-proofing/paint thingy done. I know, I know... rust proofing is useless... let's not start on that. Intercooler had a few dents on it so it's being replaced.

They loaned me a 2002 Outback H6 3.0 sedan. I LIKE THIS CAR!
It looks nice, drive nice, and got cool interior. It doesn't feel like 212HP though.... Maybe because it's so heavy (3600lbs+)... also, suspension was definitely looser than WRX...
It was cool that they loaned me a more expensive car (although it's only for one day.)

Now, onto cancelling the warranty......

I really liked the H6 when I test drove it.. Did you get one of the one's with 2 sunroofs? Those are really cool.. The leather is very nice also, and I loved the Mcintosh stereo.. If only I could afford both one of those and a WRX..........

Wow, it comes with 2 sunroofs? and the stereo was McIntosh? Didn't know that. But to tell you the truth, the stereo didn't really impress me. It has controls for bass, MID, and trebble which I thouht was a bit strange... maybe that's why...
Today driving on in rain, I forgot how heavy the car was for a sec and got close(not really close) to rear ending a car. Wasn't even going that fast either...
I would like to see 2 sunroofs version of the car though

Hmm... I forget which one I was in but it was the top of the line.... You probably have one without the Mcintosh stereo cos that stereo is great! One of the best sounding car stereo's I've ever heard.... You know what, it's the "VDC" that I test drove.. It's basically Subaru's version of Lexus.. Very cool...

Arrow Subaru of Schaumburg (IL) ~ Again!

Last Saturday I ordered a Blue Impreza WRX from Subaru of Schaumburg in Schaumburg, Illinois.

First off: I got the deal I wanted, $400.00 over invoice.

That being said:

I called SoS beforehand, told Tim that I was a frequent I-club visitor and asked if he had any WRX's on the lot that were not white or red. He said "No", but did say he had quite a few coming in over the next week or so. He advised me to come in and order one before they hit the floor. If I asked for him he would take care of me.
I was at SoS a good 15 minutes later, asked for Tim and waited. And waited. And waited. Finally a salesperson called Chris (a younger kid) had us sit down and told us that Tim would be right with us. Chris would just start some of the paperwork and check what was available. We went through the incoming car list, and he was somewhat surprised at my knowledge of the Subaru, options, etc. When I mentioned the I-club, he drew a blank. It was vaguely familiar to him :-) Oh well..... Anyway, soon Chris was asking me what I wanted to pay for the car, how I wanted to pay for it, if I had a trade-in, etc... in short, Chris was selling me a car, Tim was nowhere in sight. So I plainly said that I wanted to pay no more than $400 over invoice. According to Chris that was never done. The least they could do was 3% over invoice, which would roughly calculate out to $700.00. So Chris gets up to talk to "his manager" (which just happens to be Tim, the person that was going to "take care of me"), does the obligatory disappearing act for 5 minutes or so, and returns smiling from ear to ear with a sheet of paper. Scribbled on it: $23,152.00 or, as Chris points out: $400.00 over invoice. At this point I am already annoyed that Tim handed me off to Chris, so I take out my calculator and my printout from MSN CarPoint. $21,977 Base + $525 destination + $400 = $22,902. Chris is somewhat flabbergasted, mumbles something about "that's what the boss told me" and retreats for another 5 minute time-out. He comes back, apologizes profusely and explains that Tim accidentally was looking at the wrong vehicle when he calculated the price. Indeed, and my dad was an alien from Uranus! Anyway, same frumpy sheet of paper, new calculation a la SoS: $21,977 + $525 + $150 Advertising co-op= $22,652 + $400 = $23,052. The $150.00 Advertising Co-op rings somewhat true, so I don't even talk about it. Besides, at that point the whole of SoS is starting to get on my nerves. I plunk down $1,000 deposit after Chris assures me that the car will be delivered on Thursday (tomorrow). When I tell them I already have financing through my bank I'm being told they in that casr they'll finish all the paperwork now, invoice the car, and get the administration done with. I politely but firmly inform Chris that I am not handing over the balance of payment on this car until my ass is firmly planted in the car that I have ordered. Again, Chris retreats for a while. It is then that Tim has Chris point out to me that I might want to reconsider and finance through them (although Tim is still somewhere in his Ivory Tower, out of sight) I refuse the offer, in varied shapes and sizes, about 4 times (although, the last offer was 5.5% for 60 months, which was VERY tempting) and leave, without ever having seen or having spoken to Mr. Tim Buti. Unfortunately, as I found out today, this story might not quite be over yet..... more to come later.

I really feel your pain. I was totally fed up with the b.s. from Chicagoland dealers.

I looked at vanbortelsubaru.com, clicked the options I wanted, and came up with 22,590 (speaker upgrade, mirror upgrade, rear diff protector, 5-speed, wagon). I called the 800 number and spoke with a nice salesperson (Patrice Everest). She asked if I wanted to order the car. I said "sure." She said it would be arriving within the month, but a similarly equipped car might be in sooner- would I be interested? "Of course." Two days later, my car (with roof rack crossbars) came in. I flew to Rochester from O'hare (1 hour, 30 minutes, less than $200). Upon landing, I was picked up by someone from the dealership, and 15 minutes later
test driving my car (1.9 miles on the clock). I signed papers, was given instructions on the care and feeding of a WRX, given information on extended warranties, service plans (SoA), and was on my way in less than 40 minutes.

No hassles. No haggling. No doc fee/advertising/special color fees. The only charge (which I was told about in advance) was $40 for New york inspection/transit permit.

When I think of all the time I wasted haggling with salespeople in Chicagoland- I get upset. Instead, a short flight, a pleasant purchase, followed by a 750 mile drive home in a great car... take your pick.

Yeah, I was ignored the one time I went in there, so I ended up buying my WRX from Roto... I pretty much live in Palatine too, and Roto is right down the road (on Rand in Arlington Heights).. They were very helpful. My friend Jimmy bought a car from them a couple years back and he has been very pleased.. You should try them out since you are so close. They did not give me any hassel about price, getting extended warranties, using their financing.. etc.. Talk to Charles, he's probably the most humble salesmen I've ever met..

That was the idea. Not only was a chunk of change saved, but the hassle time was turned into a nice shakedown trip!

BTW, you can feel the car break-in... i.e., the shifter losing its notchiness, the engine/turbo becoming more responsive...

WHAT A GREAT CAR
