Hi, everyone! 


I'm new here and I will be buying my first Subaru this year, the new Forester.  I would like to hear about how you negotiated the price of your new subaru.  How much less than the MSRP did you ask?  What did you end up with?  What do you suggest as I negotiate my car?  Thanks in advance for your responses!

Get quotes from multiple dealers and get them bidding against each other. 


Ask to speak with the internet sales manager - usually corporate and internet sales are non-commission.

dunno about Forester, on 'another forum', folks are getting double-digit percent under MSRP on Outbacks. 10-12% under seems 'common'.

Sunday newspapers usually have an advertisements of vehicles they want to sell fast.  Bring it to another dealership and ask if they can beat this price.  They, usually, will not let you go.  They want your business. 


That was how I bought my Camry.


I do not know if they still do it but it is worth to try.


Good luck,

Just so you know. Get in contact with a Subaru ambassador and they can give you a certificate for 500$ off the price of a new car.
