    My VIN is IN!

    Just got the good news and wanted to share it with you guys (and girls).

    Well, I can't believe it's been this long. I called SOA so many times that 3 of the reps there already know me well. So on July 2nd, they were able to tell me that my ride was on a vessel heading to Washington. For some reason the VIN was not assigned to me before it rolled onto the boat. Then because of the holiday, it took a while for them to get things sorted out but it reached port on the 3rd and I just got my VIN 30 mins ago. My ETA is 8/6 but waiting till then really doesn't seem like a big deal after how long I have already waited.

    The bad part was that the loan I had already applied and gotten approved for is gonna expire on 7/27. I was able to make a quick call to my credit union and invalidate the first blank check that they sent me and request another though. The new blank one should be in some time next week. Time to make some calls to get insurance squared away!

    That's very cool man. I know from my experience of ordering the car through Subaru was a wild ordeal. Love the car tho.

    sounds very familiar.. I was unsure if my loan would expire as well but then my car finally came in last weekend. My insurance went up from a 2005 Volvo S60R... which seems odd but they told me that it was because it is a brand new car and if I got into an accident then they would have to basically buy me a new one

    What insurance did you end up going with? I'm trying to decide between Allstate and Liberty Mutual. My parents have everything insured with Allstate. When I bought my civic a little over 3 years ago I had my dad sign as the other owner of it with me so I could get a lower rate with their bundling discounts. I'll be moving out next year once I'm a good chunk of the way through my college loans so it may get a little messy if I have my dad sign as a secondary owner on the WRX. But without him doing that, my rates are ridiculously high with Allstate. Liberty Mutual actually came out about $100 cheaper every 6 months even without having my dad sign for it with me.

    I'm just concerned about the quality of service I'd get from Liberty Mutual. Are they gonna hassle me if I have a claim or handle it efficiently? Has anyone here dealt with Liberty Mutual?

    I have progressive auto insurance and if I bundle the house with it then it will be a tad cheaper all around. When i first got progressive with my last car the 3rd day i had the car i got rear ended... Progressive handled everything really well... They handle everything well and quickly and since it is online I can check everythig out/ print off temp cards etc. as far as coverage i have the standard 500 deductible with no add ons. You will get a discount if you are a college grad too . I really see no point in having an agent for car insurance.

    Geico gave me the best rate by FAR. Give 'em a call. BTW- I'm sure you already know this, but most loan agencies (i know your's "hindude") require comprehensive coverage and a $500 collision deductible.

    I have state farm as well. Best price by far especially with my motorcycles and toys.. Also never had an issue with claims.

    I have liberty mutual and I would recommend them. For one you get offered a 100k extended warranty because Subaru has some deal with them and secondly, I am only 21, bought my car myself and have full coverage with them for 163 a month. From what I have seen that's not that bad and I also have a not at fault accident on my record and still came out pretty low for me. Just my .02

    Thanks for all the input. Guess I should shop around a little more before I try to pick between just Allstate and Liberty Mutual. I'm not just looking the cheapest rate. (Safe Auto, The General...) I want to make sure I get good service if I ever need to make a claim.

    Dzanga, how does the 100k extended warranty work? Do you have to pay extra for it? Does it extend Subaru's warranty or is it separate through Liberty Mutual? I'm planning on going stage 2 so, I'm not sure if it will be really be worth it to pay for an extended warranty (even though I know going stage 2 doesn't necessarily "void" your warranty).

    Well the guy I sat down with to do all the final paper work with me asked me if I had liberty and then asked if I want a extended warranty so basically it's 100k bumper to bumper from what he says tires are like discount they replace them and you just pay to replace the warranty on the tires. It was an extra $1k and I had planned on going stage 2 e85 anyway and you always have the option to cancel it and get your money back before you reach 100k. I canceled it and it went back to the 36k factory warranty and then I felt stupid and called soa and luckily it hadn't gone through yet and I made sure the disregarded the cancelation. So basically I would get it and if your dealership doesn't like mods cancel it and get your money back luckily mine doesn't care. Hope that helped
