    Angry Really bummed.

    First off, I'm new to the forum so hello to all. I've been to a lot of forums and message boards and this one seems very well run w/ great members.

    Well, I almost purchased my first WRX last night (the one in my avatar) but working with the dealership didn't go as planned. I went there the night before and we, supposedly, worked out all the numbers to where it was a done deal. (as long as I could come up with a $3,000 down) I told them I would let them know the following morning. So I figured out the money situation and called to let them know. As soon as I told them I had the money, they told me that the deal wasn't going to work and that I would have to pay $80 more a month then we originally worked out. ...Then they proceeded to feed me a bunch of BS and told me they'd call me if anything changed. hence my bummedness.

    So now I find myself checking my phone every 5 minutes waiting for a call.

    Introduction / rant finished.

    Hello.

    I think you are incorrect to be upset. They make more Subarus every day, and the dealer you described does not sound like someone with whom you should be doing business.

    Incidentally, there shouldn't be any "numbers" to work out at a dealer. Only the price out the door, all said, should matter to you. Arrange your own financing if needed (join a credit union, for example). Keep your stay at the lot as short as possible, and your interaction based only on a single number -- the final amount.

    You'll find another car. When you do, prefer one with a full service history using authentic Subaru parts.

    I hear you. I appreciate it, too.

    I really had my hopes up for this car and it's been hard to find "the one" in my area. I'll keep plugging away...Thanks again

    Chances are very good that you will find a better car at a better deal.

    IMO never buy a car with something you don't like.

    Keep looking - don't be in such a hurry.

    It usually takes time to find the right car. The more selective and careful you are the happier you are likely to be.

    Couldn't agree more. Although I will say this, I was never the biggest fan of WRB, but I've been seeing a lot in person and my have they grown on me lol. At first I wouldn't consider blue but now I really wouldn't mind it.
