The caveat is that dealerships may not include the 2015 WRX...

    Best of luck to you.
    Cool thanks for the tip on this, I am getting a rally america license here soon and they are a part of the program. However it takes 6 months for this to take effect, but it will be handy when my gf needs a new car.

    Huh, alright well if its just costo. It would be worth getting one as they are only about $50 I think... But how does that work do you walk up to a dealership and say hey i'm a costco member here is my card and you get invoice??

    You check with Costco for participating dealerships. I think you can find out from their website. It should be a no haggle price.

    When you walk into your dealer it's with the same guy right? Next time try walking in and ask to speak to someone different. People seem to get sucked into speaking with one person, but sometimes you need to find the sales guy who you get on with. If they don't play ball then there is nothing wrong with going to the GM and saying "Look, I seem to be bundled with a salesman I don't like, can you find me someone less (insert issue here)?". The issue could be "too aggressive", "doesn't know much about the car", "not likely to get you a sale", "not someone I seem to get on with" etc. Find the right guy and you're set for life imho - someone who gets you will not only know where you want to be at, but also be willing to work with his manager on your behalf.

    No problem. You may try to figure out which dealerships are participating, they may be more likely to work on prices with you. Either way, I wouldn't pay 30k for a base wrx.

    It wouldn't hurt to get the bank to approve you on that price, then shop around look and you can always go cheaper. When I bought my first subaru I was approved $26000 and I found a car I wanted and they were asking $22000. I told them I was only approved for $20000 and that needs to be out the door. They came back and said 21600 out the door and I made a fake call and said the bank only said $21000 and if they can get me out the door for that price I will by it. That had me out the door for that price. But you can get one cheaper for sure just talk them down with money already worked out

    You can get special pricing at certain dealerships who offer Costco or AAA rates. But the price you are describing seems high unless they are adding tax, etc. I don't know how much DMV fees and taxes are in Idaho. Anyways, if they are not, I got three dealerships in the Portland area who all offered me prices around Invoice. If you want to buy here, and pay Idaho taxes, DMV fees later, you can always take a trip this way. Let me know if you need the dealerships names.

    If you could recommend a few dealer that would be great, worst case I can just use their quote to compare.

    You'll get similar pricing to the costco deal, most likely.

    You'll just have to deal with some persistent phone calls/emails from dealerships.

    No way I would ever consider a base wrx for the prices you mentioned.

    You might want to take advantage of the power of emails. Find every dealer within a couple of hundred miles and email them. Tell them what you want with detail (color, options, trim level, etc). Also tell them what you want to pay. I would recommend that you find out what their cost is and start there, or a couple hundred on top of it. Let them know you know what they paid for it.

    I've done this, and found that the responses varied from those that ignored my numbers and gave me theirs to one's who made offers based on my numbers. In the end I had several dealers offer very good deals, then I went to my closest dealer and showed them the offers. Told them I preferred to stay local, but only if they could match the prices. They did, I stayed local, and most of the haggling was done from my couch.

    The key is making sure you know what THEY paid for the car. Knowledge is power. They want to make at least a few hundred, but they get paid for moving product as well.

    Try royal moore in Hillsborough Oregon, d*(k Hannah in Vancouver Washington, or Gresham Oregon Subaru. All of them were just over or under invoice. Pm me if you have further questions. As others have said, try using email to online sales at various dealerships. That's what I do, while telling them I am shopping around. Like you, they appreciate honesty, and someone who is open. These dealerships I found gave me the best deals when I looked a month ago for all of Washington, Oregon, northern California, and Idaho. Good luck!
