Now before everybody starts pointing out that when I bought my 2014 Subaru, I stated it would probably be my last car. Things change. We are moving from the 50 years of savings mode into spending mode. So today I drove my 2014 Outback over to the dealer and said give me the bottom line. Now mind you, I didn't do this blind. I spent all day yesterday at 3 different Subaru dealers getting offers. I saved the biggest dealer in the state for my last stop. All four gave me the exact same number for trade in value. A 2014 Outback with 18,600 miles and a knicked up rear bumper from the jerk who hit my car in the parking lot and kept going last week. $17,000. Bottom line...largest dealer in the state beat my best offer by $1,300. No dicking around, no haggling, just give me your price. Same car comparison at all 4. 2017 Outback Limited. Leather interior, Eyesight System, Nav and a whole lot of bells and whistles that is going to take me a long time to learn. Two surprising things...Subaru is offering 0% financing through Jan 3. But because we hold all our property in a Trust, cars included, I couldn't finance through the Trust. According to dealer, banks don't allow it. So i wrote a check. Second thing...How long it took to wrap up the deal, even though I then paid cash. Three hours from sitting down with salesman to out the door in my new car. I knew the model, looked at computer inventory that was on the lot and chose the color in 10 minutes. Now I need a millennial to explain all the features and how to work them. Possibly one more reason I might have to get a smartphone. Many features on the car can be controlled through a phone. I'll be kicking and screaming all the way to the phone store.
