Anyone out there driving Subaru...

I just bought one (impreza) from the showroom at Toa payoh...

Loan already approve. Now waiting for the next COE bidding, but when i bought that time, it was not this 8K COE, it was the previous one, quite high about 16K or 17K.

 

I have a few question to ask....

 

1) Have anyone ever encounter a bad experience from Subaru?

2) Is there any bad service from there?

3) Is there any "sweet talk" or "empty promises" from them?

3) How many time did they attualy bid for ur COE? Do u need to top-up?

4) Anyone ever get thru by the first bid?

5) How long do u wait till u get ur car?

 

 

So far, there's no attractive advertisment saying that they will give alot of free gift. The sales person did told me the fact that i need to add $2500 for addional item like sport rim, leather seat and some other stuff. Im quite satisfied with that cuz, from what i see in the newspaper, all other advertisment seems to be 80% fake. They will give alot of free gift but end up, its all from our own money...

 

Maybe experience buyer can advised me on some of my question... :thumb:

It's already done deal. Don't worry too much, just relax and wait for the delivery, and learn to enjoy your ride.

 

1) Have anyone ever encounter a bad experience from Subaru?

2) Is there any bad service from there?

There bound to have someone who has negative experience with Subaru, and Motor Image. This applies to any car, even rolls royce.

 

 

3) Is there any "sweet talk" or "empty promises" from them?

Whatever it's in the Sales Agreement will be delivered. Whatever agreed between the Sales Exec (SE) and you, would have to be written down to avoid ambiguity and misunderstanding

 

3) How many time did they attualy bid for ur COE? Do u need to top-up?

The COE bid price,and number of bid attempts are reflected in the Sales Agreement. It's their tactics to ask for top-up especially when they have surplus open-cat COE due to expire soon.

 

4) Anyone ever get thru by the first bid?
Definitely. You can even ask to guarantee COE if you are willing to pay.

 

5) How long do u wait till u get ur car?
At time of booking, they should be able to tell you the estimated delivery time. Subaru delivery is usually not long, unlike Honda, or Toyota, unless your's is an indent order.

 

 

3) So far, there's no attractive advertisment saying that they will give alot of free gift.

Sports rims are standard item in all Subaru cars.

$2500 is their premium package. See here for details

I bought it at $57388 after $500 discount. (manual)

 

Demon, usually if they will ask to top up, how much will they ask..

It stated in my price list that the COE rebate is $12500..

Hopefully the next COE will not shoot up that much :(

 

This COE thing is so troublesome... Sian of waiting too long...

Ya it's true, now the price have drop 2k. But the SE told me that for those who buy now its quite risky, cuz the next COE will increase and end up, they will need to top up more... Their COE rebate is also quite low, only $9000+?.. Haiya, 1st hand car so many things to consider..

 

By the way, the rim dat comes wit the car is not nice.. 15"..

I intend to change it to 16" much nicer.. im taking white colour.. U drive subaru also...?

normally used car interest rate is higher than new car...

 

but consider that used car u loan is also lower than the new car. so is roughly the same.

 

new car interest rate is 2.85% - 2.88%.. promotion 2.5%, 2.8%.

 

used car is higher, last time is 3.75%, 4%. that 1 is realyl high. now promotional rate is 3.18%, another 1 is 2.98%.

 

so is actualyl roughly the same...

 

if u r looking for pro free car, of course get a new car, but backside plz dun be itchy, change car so fast.

 

but if u talk about depreciation, get a used car. so that u wont lose so much over the yrs.

 

2nd car no need wait, loan approve liao u can get car.

 

new car u have to wait for COE.. at least 2-4 bid.. which is 1-2 months..

 

for dealer.. sell new car no challange.. lol...

PI usually provide g'tee 1 bid.. so that u can get ur car fast, we can get our money fast too.

 

but usually agent dun offer 1 bid g'tee.. unless u ask for it, n provide u top up 1-2 more for COE, they 1 bid coe gif u..

i gt 2x white bulbs... im not sure whether is the 1 u r asking anot. haha

 

ooh i think u refering to the headlight bulb whereas I mean the interior lightning when u turn on the light indicator at nite, there in the car the dashboard the RPM n Speedo and the rest of the aircon n other selector will light up. I hav check wif M400 aka Chris, info fr him is tht the speedo, RPM, Fuel and Temp Guage for impreza uses T5 bulb and Dome light( like a small fuse size)... :)
