Why can't you people just NOT argue for once? Its like a bad high school trip lol! Whats the point anyways really? You are going to say this and then he is going to say that and neither one of you are going to budge because your set in your ways whether its fact or not.
I paid $34k roughly for my limited wrx....added a couple extended warranties and a few extra goodies.
I probably should have just gotten the STI but if I did I would have not settled with a base or premium which meant another 5-6k and MAYBE I would have been able to afford it but it is what it is now and the wifey wanted to stay safe also
I have a wife, a kid, a house, and all that BS about "if you can't pay in cash and have to finance then you shouldn't be buying" are just people who were raised to be concieted like their rich parents. This is supposed to be a "subaru family"!? Could have fooled me. Half of you who talk down on people here are dorky as hell anyways and would get your @$$ kicked if you talked the way you do on here to someone like me in my face. Just anwser the question and let it be.

I'm with you on the "if you can't pay in cash and have to finance then you shouldn't be buying," that's absolute BS. If that were true, then the majority of this world would be effing homeless. Some people need to get a goddamn clue.

x3. In fact, it's just plain not smart to dump cash into a depreciating asset. With the low interest rates of today, much better off financing and investing available cash elsewhere.

Either way, people need to relax and not worry about others financial decisions. Seriously. I'm guessing some just thrive off 'bragging' and exaggerating about how much better they are with their finances.

I concur... I'm broke and in a pile of debt... But I deal with it.

I make a decent living... but that's after paying for my education all by myself... working full time during undergrad and also paying for grad school myself... so for those who like brag about how much money they make and whether or not their financial decisions/situation are better than others... go F yourself!

Some people are not as privileged as others and had to pay for their own educations, at accredited universities with real majors/concentrations... To talk down to someone like you're better than them? Absolutely ludicrous and an act of a lower class personality... and also, to brag about buying their own home at this age or that age... who gives a crap? Some would say it's a bad financial decision to purchase a home... I know I still rent... but that's only because I'm not certain where I'll be in the next couple of years... But does that mean me buying a WRX is a bad decision because I still rent... NO! It's a WRX... not a freaking 7 series... idiot.

Sorry for the rant... just read a lot of posts of a certain someone bragging about how awesome his life is (not naming names or pointing fingers, but I'm confident we all know who I'm referring to)... sounds like he's lacking something and needs to prove how "MAN" he is. Blah... I hate people who talk/brag about themselves.

Okay... back to online shopping to put myself in more debt..

It's nasioc...anything can and will happen here from what i've seen. I don't think it's rediculous though....what's rediculous is how many people have something to prove here by being "try hards" and bringing people, especially new who are trying to learn, down all the time. Anywho....some of you guys got good deals...it's hard to bargain with a subaru dealership so if you did, kudos

Seriously my brain hurts after reading to the end of this thread.

There's good, not so good, and WTF advice here...so take it for what it's worth. Anyone who wants an opinion, please ask me. I'm the Business Manager for a large Subaru dealer and a proud owner of a '13 WRX. Here's a couple things:

Price - inventory is regional, meaning some areas will have WRX's in stock and ready to sell, some won't. This being said, discounts all depend on the dealer and the area. I can tell you cats that we start very high on WRX's because they are not easy to find around here. When we get them, they literally sell within hours. I had a guy come in for a white hatch and left in a black sedan...just because he said this was his only shot at getting one other than placing an order. Also, he was going to take a plasma blue sedan but in the hour he was considering it, someone bought it, no joke. I myself had to pull strings with an out of state dealer to get my silver premium hatch. Moral of the story, there's no rhyme or reason to negotiating a deal, all depends on the dealer. We are easily the most popular dealer in the area because of how well we treat people and how fair we are...but you're paying sticker on a WRX, period.

Interest rate - Let's face it folks, it's all about your credit and how good the finance guy is. Subaru loves to throw out the 1.9% & 2.9% all over the place, but using myself as an example, I can beat that. Timing is key as well, a lot of banks will throw out rate specials at certain times, plus most finance guys have enough pull to get an even better rate discount from certain lenders. As an example, one of my main banks will throw out a Thurs to Mon rate special occasionally discounting an automatic 0.5% off their rates, then I can call in a 0.25% favor and drop it further. Another bank of mine threw out a special last weekend, I financed someone for 72 months at 1.59%.

Any of you cats want advice feel free to ask.

That's a high rate, especially for such a short term. If you have a credit score better than 700 you need to get the rate down. A for price, with all the added options seems to be a great price. That is a lot of options though...remember they all add up and some would be cheaper if you did them after the fact.

Like I said, price seems fair for sure!

Don't go in looking for a payment. There's nothing a sales person wants to see more than a customer who wants to talk payment. I have friends who did that years ago after happy hour (derp). They walked out with a new civic. I looked at their payment and term....they easily could have walked out with a new Corvette with the payment they had.

Sales uses a 4 square system. The whole thing is designed to make you focus on the monthly payment. Don't do it. Tell them going in that you're paying cash and you have no trade. You want a price. Nothing more. Once you get to a price, say.....you know, I may want to trade my car after all. Why do you do that? Because then you'll know what they're actually giving you for the trade. When they come back with a trade number, you negotiate some more. They say 10 on the trade and (to make a number) 27 for the new car. It's not out of line to say....well, my car and 15 and I'll do it. Let them negotiate from there. (I'm just picking numbers) Don't be afraid to lowball. Know what your car's numbers are. My wife's car.....I was prepared to trade her old outback plus $13k. I threw the car plus $10k and they didn't blink. Came back with 10.9. I said ok, but they had to buy and install new snows. They agreed.

If you negotiate with a trade on a monthly payment, you are going to get screwed. Screwed, screwed, screwed.
This couldn't be more true. One more thing I would add is that you should go in KNOWING your credit (not just your FICO score, but your credit history).

Piggybacking - know your trade value, research (as I am now, preparing to buy my second new STI), and be willing to spend a couple days to negotiate the PRICE of a car.

I bought my wife's new Accord.. kinda went like this:
1. I'm paying cash - 2 hours in to negotiation and had a price on the car.
2. I think i'm going to trade a car in after-all - 1 hour of negotiation.
3. Eh..might as well trade in our truck too, can you make that happen? - 1 more hour.
4. I guess i'll go ahead and take advantage of Honda's .9%@60 months since I KNOW we qualify, can you run my credit now? Oh by the way, I don't have a down payment. - 20 minutes $XXX @ 60 months, follow me to the finance office where you'll sign your papers and we'll start to prepare your car for delivery...kthx.

Ended up negotiating the car to $5k under invoice and with the negative equity in the 2 cars we traded in, ended up at just under MSRP + TTL. Sounds fair to me considering one was a 150k mile jetta and the other a 250k mile 6.0L diesel ford.
