Question Can someone recommend a dealership in AZ or So. CA?

My wife and I are going to pick up a Subaru Impreza RS next month... our first. We are looking for a dealership. We live in Phoenix...but I dont mind traveling to southern California to buy from the right place.

Any help is appreciated..

Dude, it's all about Timmons Subaru in Long Beach. It's quite a drive from AZ though.... Talk to Tor, he'll hook ya up.

Use the internet. Goto Autobytel.com and get yourself hooked up with someone in fleet. I purchased my MY00 from Thomas Motors on Bell Road in Phoenix. I was happy with the fleet manager, Tim White. I got a smoking deal (about $200 over invoice), BUT, their service department sucks badly.

There are 3 dealers in Phoenix. Thomas Motors, Pitre in Scottsdale and Camelback. Use Autobytel, you won't be disappointed.

Do like Kastle suggests. He got a screaming deal.

And, I second the vote against Thomas Motors' service department. Some poorly trained monkey put screwdriver marks in my dash installing the alarm system. The wiring job was so bad the wires fell down in front of my pedals. I had to re-tie all the wires myself.

Good luck, and welcome to the group. We've got a growing bunch here in AZ.


PS: You should join the AZ Subaru mailing list. We're planning a few meets this fall (track days and such). We're also trying to jump start the aftermarket in this area.

Thanks everyone for your info and advice.. I am loooking into the fleet option and I have emailed Irvine Subaru also..

We hope to have our new Impreza when we return from our Labor Day vacation. The only problem I will have now is dividing my time and money between my 83 Supra (which I am planning to race in 2001) and our new Impreza.

Oh... It won't be long and you will sell the Supra to pay for goodies on the Suby
I just sold my RX-7 R1 because I NEVER drove it anymore. I even pulled it out of the garage so that I woud have to hassle to get the Suby out.... I still didn't drive it. The only time I drove it was when the Suby was broke down. Too much detonation So I decided to sell it (the RX-7)
Hope you enjoy your suby when you get it half as much as I do mine, because if you do, you will e=race the Suby and the Supra will be sold

I can vouch for Tor at Long Beach subaru. He's awesome. I live in Ohio, and all the dealers around here gave me a crappy deal. My parents live in LB, so I gave Tor a call. He straight up gave me an awesome deal, no haggling and set up the truck transport and everything. (plus, he can hook you up with STi parts). My car came with a 20mm FHi bar on it .

Not to flame Tor, but he didn't take serious when I went down there a year ago to get a RS. But he was interested in showing me how he could "order" a 22b. Maybe he was just screwing with me.

Frank's kicks a$$. O/T I am going there tonight to get my SYMS shifter and STi mounts... maybe some pullies (hmmmm).

Thumbs up

There is only one Subaru dealer I would buy from in the area, and thats Scottsdale Pitre. Their service department rocks, and their sales people are very courteous.

Now, if I could just get the same smoking prices...
