Question How much should I pay for 2002 WRX?

After reading several magazine reviews, watching the auto shows and reading online reviews I have decided to look into purchasing a 2002 WRX sedan. I am relatively new to buying cars from a dealership and would like to well prepared before I walk in the door. Any tips for negotiating a good deal on such a sought after car? Or should I just expect to pay sticker? And if you wouldn't mind please share some of your dealership/purchasing stories with me.

thank you,

Make sure you bring your lube when you are ready to do the business!

I don't know about your sales experiences in the US, but in Canada, there ain't no wrangling with the dealers on account of limited volume and the oh so numerous buyers. I waited for a month to get mine and gladly paid full MSRP because it arrived a month earlier than expected. As a "deal", the dealer waived installation charge on the Subaru alarm and sold it to me at their cost.

Where I come from, this is a pretty crap deal, but it's such a wicked car that I just assume the position. I just returned from an evening drive through our local hills - with a big smile plastered over my face from ear to ear! Just get the car!

I would say you shouldn't have to pay over $25,000 unless you get the BBS wheel option or some other over priced add on.

Yep, low supply, high demand. Don't expect the dealers to budge on the sticker. If you're trading another car in (like I did), maybe you can haggle a bit on the trade-in. Let's see.. I paid $26283, but that's with a few options.

.. Would've gotten the BBS wheels, but they're not the gold ones

MSRP is about average down here in paradise. But to the guy in the lease, you are getting screwed! Anyway this topic has been gone over again and again. Give us a break!

It's all relative. What can you afford? In a competitive world you should never pay MSRP. Somewhere between invoice and MSRP is a good start. Leasing this car is not an option. It's too expensive. Those of you who have should put the crack pipe down. Unless you can right off the nut against a business expense. I got my 2002 WRX for $23,800 w/air filtration, spoiler, arm rest extension, and security upgrade. You should look to negotiate the same.

If you post in the WRX non-technical forum, you will get plenty of responses from people who payed well-under MSRP. If your dealer is telling you they can't budge from the sticker price, go to a different dealer. "Limited volume and high demand" is a load of manure. I have seen posts from dealers who have several WRX's on their lots, and will make you a deal to have it shipped to wherever you are.

Thumbs up

Danice Langdon, Cross Creek Subaru in Fayetteville, NC. Invoice + $150 + $189 documentation fee, all options at invoice, drop shipped to any dealer at no extra cost. That is the best deal I have heard, of course you would have to order it, not buy it off the lot (if they have any in stock). Good luck, they are great cars!
