The 2022 Forester is finally on SOA website, so let's start sharing our shopping experiences. Please, be detailed and specific as to the trim, packages/options, accessories, and what other charges the price includes (destination, document fees, etc.) so that we know how to compare. Bonus points for specifying the region and/or dealership :) Happy shopping All.

I'm in the market for the 2022 Base with the alloy wheel package. This will be my 4th Subaru and second Forester. Loved my first 2015 Premium, but couldn't stand the Outback and Impreza I had after that. So, I'm back to Forester. Going for the Base because I really don't like the moonroof and spoiler. I wish these were optional and I would go with the Sport. Anyhow, hoping to see people getting decent deals on this thread.

Ha. I pulled the trigger today. Decided not to spend tons of time on shopping around this time as I was afraid the car wouldn't arrive in time before my current lease expires. Just placed a factory order for the Base with the alloy wheel package at $1,000 off of MSRP. The worst discount I've gotten on new cars so far, but given the market and convenience (local dealership 10 minutes away), I'm not complaining. I'm in NoVa btw.

Edit 1: Quoted ETA is January. hope it'll be here sooner.
Edit 2: Waiting for my Loyalty coupon to arrive in my inbox.

Do a search on here and you can probably get more detailed info. But there are a few non profits that partner with Subaru and receive special pricing from them. Fastest way to obtain the special pricing is by giving $500 to become a founding member of ASPCA. There are however cheaper options.

Please people do not use OTD (Out the Door) pricing. It is absolutely worthless when comparing prices. Taxes and license can vary wildly from state to state. Some pay 3-4% others much more. Here in Cali depending on the county it can exceed 10%. If you can list MSRP and invoice price for vehicle and options separately it make it a lot easier to quickly compare and saves someone from looking up actual prices for every post/deal.

Note to myself - for my next Subaru, get proactive and become VIP. Fabulous prices reported here by VIP members.
I had the VIP letter within an hour of qualifying for it. The donation is still less than the 2% portion of the discount!

2022 Forester Sport (white), package 24.
Paid MSRP ($29,765) on the Sport trim and got the 24 package ($1,645) at no charge....essentially 5.23% below total MSRP.
I was surprised they were pretty quick to toss that in....should of gone for more???

Adding other options outside of dealership.

I ordered the premium (package 11) with auto dimming mirrors and a few dealer installed options such as trailer hitch, Stu door handle cup protectors, and bumper cover. Ordered early September. Can’t remember price paid.

has anyone who has ordered received their VIN (not VON) yet or an updated arrival date? Originally told end of November now maybe December or end of January? Very excited! Currently have a 2018 Forester premium.

Still December delivery as of Wednesday. Got the VON, but can’t see more than the dealer at this point. Not sure if they’ll release the VIN at build or when it reaches the States.
