Incentive Question: 2006 Spec B


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Long time browser, first time poster.

 

I am purchasing a Spec B some time in the next few weeks...dead-set on the 2006 for reasons I won't go into.

 

I have gotten a good price by 'negotiating' via email - contacting many dealers and asking for best and finals.

 

So my questions are:

  • Is it possible that the Spec B will ever see the cash incentives of the other LGTs?
  • Also, is it possible that the special financing rate which now applies to the Spec B will disappear?

Right now I am not feeling the need to rush on this, considering that there are a lot of these cars still on lots, and the price is likely to go down further or stay the same. If there is a chance that the cash plus special finance rates will apply to the Spec B post July 5, then it makes sense to wait. But if the special finance rates could disappear and the cash back not materialize, then it costs me $$$.

 

Sorry for the long post...but you guys are my last hope...my last hope to save another $1500 or more!

 

Thanks in advance for all responses. And my apologies if this has been posted elsewhere. I did do a fairly comprehensive search, but couldn't find any info on this.

 

Take care,

Short answers: yes and yes!

This is really dependant on timing and which SOA distributor services your region of the country. Your best bet is to keep checking subaru.com from time to time and put in zip codes near you for current incentives.

Yes it is. However, the incentive summary we've been sent shows the Spec.B as a "Limited Production" model which voids it of any cash incentives. The link you've provided about purchasing one for $ 30,707 was a price not including any rebate. The dlr seems to have inflated the invoice price to $ 32,707 to sweeten up the deal! True invoice on the vehicle is $ 31,524.

What I'm telling you is that SOA offered a tried and true $2,000 rebate in the North East until May 31st. Perhaps you're not understanding so I'll spell it out for you clearly: THIS INCLUDED THE SPEC B, and LGT. It did not "void" any cash incentives. Also you're just plain wrong. Re-read the thread. The $30, 707 was in my case after the $2K rebate. Well this is approximated as tax was involved. The incentives and to which cars they apply change from time to time.

 

Call my $32, 707 what you want. That's my price pre-rebate.

 

Good luck getting yours.

Hmm.. you don't need to spell it out for me clearly. I work in the Internet Sales Department at a Subie dealership in the Mid-Atlantic region. All I was trying to tell you was that SOA has not offered and does not plan on offering any cash incentives for the 2006MY Spec.B. Now that may not be true next year when the Spec.B becomes a regular productions vehicle. To prove my point further...I could sell you a 2006 Spec.B without any rebates for about $ 30,707.

Has not offered? If it's not SOA, then it's the NY/NJ distributor whatever it's called.

 

I just posted my exact breakdown and I assure you I received the rebate and that this was indeed posted on SOA's Web site www.subaru.com for public consumption for all Legacys including the Spec B in NY/NJ.

Post #8 is a quote lifted directly from Subaru.com at the time.

It was my understanding though that the incentive was only for the NYC metro area specificaly because the distributor there was different than across the rest of the country. Not sure this is so relevent anymore anyway in terms of what may or may not be on the horizon.

 

Seems like May 31 is ancient history, eh? I'm curious about anything that could be coming up for July.
