clueless on purchase price

Recommended Posts

I sure would appreciate advice about the purchase price on a 2004 Forester. I found one that has all of the options and the right color, but it has been used as a demo and has 1800 miles on it. The dealer offerred to sell it for 2300 off the sticker price.

 

Does that sound like a fair deal or should I wait til they get a brand new car in?? I am clueless.

 

Thanks!!

What's the sticker price? I would think that you should get a fair percentage of the sticker price off, considering it is less than new. At least 10-15%, or 20% if you can manage it :D Good Luck!

Scooby-

Thanks alot. The discount amounts to less than 10% so I guess it is not such a good deal. Thanks for your perspective.

Check out http://www.edmunds.com/ they have a breakdown on dealer's cost for the car and accessories, and a info on rebates etc. I have looked there and gotten the car faxes from Consumer Reports. The numbers are pretty darned accurate.

Subaru dealers are always working deals that are 1-3% over invoice. I would think that a demo should go for invoice if not 1-2% below. They were the ones that used it. The Subie invoices are posted on websites as others have mentioned. Go in armed with those printed off, tell them what you want & thats all that you will do. Do not fall into their persuasions. Use other dealerships in the area if they won't work for you. I will tell you that there is not a lot of markup on Subes, so there isn't a ton of room. Good Luck!
