We didn't import (well kinda), we found a dealership that did and bought from them. They charged US MSRP (no haggling) so we saved a ton. Could have saved a bit more if we did the legwork ourselves but we took the really easy way out.snork said:Looks good...from the avatar anyway Post up what options, accessories you got as well. Also did you import yours from the states? I've read a few people doing that on here, I guess you can save some big bucks for your troubles.
I too wanted to get my '08 7 LtD in Black but because of the Tan interior we opted for the Diamond Gray because the dealership dropped off a brand new black 7 seater for me to look at after test driving a 5 seater and the Tan leather was stained. I saw that to be a potential future issue so went with the darker interior.Lee MD said:I'm supposed to be picking up my 7-pass limited this weekend. Its my wife's ride so she chose the deep bronze. I just hope the tan interior won't get too messed up since I have a 1 year old. We are leasing since we are waiting for the diesel models to come.
The options we are getting are reverse assist, auto-dimming mirror/compass, rear bumper cover, splash guards, remote start.
Out of curiousity, what kind of numbers is the dealer giving you that may turn the deal sour?Lee MD said:I'm in Maryland in the DC suburbs. Just updated my profile.
What can stain leather? I assume oils and such, but I can't think of any foods that would. I'm sure there's a leather cleaning product out there that will get stains out when I eventually get them.
Btw, the deal on the Tribeca could fall through if the dealer doesn't give me a better price. I'd hate to have to drive up to PA to get a car in the color my wife wants. I hate buying cars!
Can be a bit of a challenge buying cars, but just be patient and not in a rush, you should do great.Lee MD said:I hate buying cars!
Where are you located? If closer to Philly, go to Rafferty Subaru and ask for Andre. I would've gone there, but its a hike. PM me about where I bought my Tribeca.fmayberry said:Lee MD -
Would you mind indicating the name of the dealer or at least the city they are located in? I am looking at the Tribeca and interested in getting the best price.
So you travel back and forth from here (Philly) to DC a lot, or are you an import?Lee MD said:Where are you located? If closer to Philly, go to Rafferty Subaru and ask for Andre. I would've gone there, but its a hike. PM me about where I bought my Tribeca.
Yeah, I should've held onto my wife's old car (Jetta) until the deal was done, but my quote from Carmax was going to expire today. I didn't have time to buy the Tribeca and sell the Jetta.njjuliano said:Tough call. Yep, I certainly would have walked away from that. Too bad you were in a rush to get a car, it makes car buying tons more stressful. But looks like you came out ok, which is a very good thing.
I don't travel. I know about Rafferty because I did a 150 radius search for the car we ended up buying.njjuliano said:So you travel back and forth from here (Philly) to DC a lot, or are you an import?
