Thank you mountains.
I'm looking specifically for what owners paid for their 2020 Forester Touring before taxes and fees.
Destination/delivery charge would differ depending on owner's zip code.

I am paying $ 55,000 - but then, I live in the Netherlands. I'm declared stark raving mad by my friends, trading in my $80,000 Merc at a huge loss. Different prices compared to the US, huh.

We did it!! No more shopping. We purchased the 2020 Forester Touring w/Popular Package #2 in Ice Silver Metallic (on the lot).

Our breakdown:
$33,866 Dealer invoice (ask to see it).
$33,000 Paid (before taxes, doc fee and titling fee).
$5,000 Down (max. allowed on credit card - used for rewards).

We chose dealer’s 3.29% APR @60 months, $2,818 finance charge, 820 FICO score. No better APR in our area.
45 days first month’s payment due. We will pay off the Forester before the first payment w/o penalty.

Good luck shoppers!

Some additional information:
We did ask for Costco's pricing and found they were only $300 above invoice. We did much better negotiating.
We did not buy any add-ons (extended warranty, window tinting, accessories, etc.).

Can you please share info on TTL. I am seeing $500 quotes as government fee by my dealer. I assume this includes only licensing and title

TTL: Tax (State sales tax), Title (Transfer) and License (DMV Registration)

"Government Fee" was never referred to at my dealer. That term is not even shown on my Purchase Order. Don't assume, ask specifically what "Government Fee" includes.
1. My Nevada Subaru dealer adds 8.25% State sales tax ($2,755.42 which includes the purchase price and documentation fee), Title ($29.25 transfer fee) and Documentation Fee ($399 separate from TTL). That's it.
2. License is DMV registration. I pay this when I go to DMV to register the vehicle. This was NOT paid to my dealer. My DMV has an online calculator to estimate my registration fee ($673). In Nevada, DMV registration fee is based off MSRP, not what you paid for the vehicle (sucks!).
