With only 2 posts total, this is all you have posted about. Your information, while it may be from a Subaru source, isn't accurate. It goes against what most of the Subaru dealers we have dealt with are saying. If that is the case and you have a sold order in place, go to another dealer. You're getting ripped.
Now if you are talking about trying to buy one off the lot....that's to be expected. You shouldn't be surprised. It was that way with all hot cars when they first come to market. The Miati is the most recent example that comes to mind.
i made a call to a Plano, Texas Subaru dealership and was told direct from sales manager that the mark up ( even on an ordered vehicle ) would be between 2,000 to 5,000 dollars. I have not tried Huffhines Subaru in Lewisville. Please feel free to confirm yourself and heep derision upon those who gouge OR just get an EVO VIII.
Hey there guys. My name is Jason and I'm @ a Subie dealer in the midwest. Just so you all know, we are selling ours for MSRP and nothing more. Not even for any that we have on the lot! Call me if you have any questions.
Hey there Rob! How is your day going? To answer your question, we are in Davenport, Iowa. Not too far from Cedar Rapids. How have they been treating you? Okay I hope. Yeah, like I said before, we Are Not charging any more than whatever the MSRP of the vehicle is and we're only taking $500 deposits. If you have any other questions, please feel free to call me at any time! Hope you have a Great day and I'll talk to you later!
I hear ya in Portland...I have talked to all the dealers here in OR and South west WA and all say at least $5k. Your best bet is to talk to Bernie Russnogle at CARR Subaru. He is the Motorsports Director there. If you want to get the best deal, call Christian Manz. His direct line is 503-672-3385. He is the fleet sales manager, he will be able to get you the best price and CARR will be getting by far the most STi's in the state.
I am getting my STi from Thomas Sales and Service in Bend. The only reason that I am getting it there is the fact that I have a friend of nearly 20 years that works there and he will be able to hook me up phat
