on Jan 31, 2013.

--> Subaru VIP Program 2% off invoice: final sale price = $30,993
-- That's about $3,252 discount from MSRP
with no haggling.
Dealer doc fees and state fees (not including 6% PA sales tax) are $189. I've seen worse; no complaints here.
Purchase Program Used
Subaru VIP Partners Program through the PA Horticultural Society
(2% below invoice)
I'm also using the Subaru Guaranteed Trade-in program (GTP) on my 2010 Outback for a reasonable no-haggle trade. Actual trade-in price agreed to be the current GTP value at the time of delivery. So this was an easy, low-pressure deal.
Dealer agreed in writing to make my deposit 100% refundable at least until I test drive one when they start to arrive on lots.
A late January 2013 order was supposed to take until April or May to be delivered, but Subaru assigned my order to a match in the first allocation, and I currently have a delivery date of March 11!!
