    Question Any dealer reviews/contacts around Philly?

    I'm in the market for an STi sometime by the end of this year. I'm located in Horsham, PA, outside of NE Philly by Willow Grove.

    Anyone recommend any dealerships around here? Or have any connections with any subaru dealers?

    Also, any pros/cons about any of the area subaru service departments?

    Thanks!

    This would be a bit out of your way, but stay away from Welsh Subaru in Royersford. I had to haggle like crazy just to get them down to sticker on my STi, and then again to get blue book for the car I was trading in. Then, I had to take my STi in to have a rear strut replaced a week ago, and they scratched and scuffed up a brand new rim. I had to argue with them about that to get them to pay for a new one. I've bought two other cars in the past few years, and that dealership over all has the least friendly environment of the three.

    I think my last post pretty says it all about the experience with the service department.

    Here's the story of when I bought my Suby:

    There was a tall thin guy with light blond/white hair that treated me like I was 15. He was flat out lying about the cost to fix some hail dents on the RSX I was trading in. I think he was the sales manager. He was trying to tell me it was like $1200 in damage, and only wanted to give me $14000 for a car with a $17000 blue book value. I even showed him the printouts and price quotes from other places, but he gave me a song and a dance about that information being outdated.

    The funny part was when I was talking to a salesman and my fiance was sitting in the RSX. Another guy with a bunch of gold chains and carrying a handful of finance paperwork walked past her and asked if she planned on getting the hail dents fixed. She realized the guy thought it was her car, and she said "I'm not sure. I might." He said "You should. It'll only cost about $100." After that, the annoying guy lost his leverage and everything fell into place. I still had to get a price quote from Rafferty and force Welsh to match it before I got a fair deal. I was only asking for blue book value on both cars, nothing more.
