It's nuts. All I did was take the offered price off Truecar and then I bounced the price between two dealers until one of them refused to do business with me and let me just go to the other dealer.That's an insane > 14% discount! Like you got the premium for cheaper than I got the base! I need to have you on speed dial when I go to buy another car in a decade or so!
At that point I picked the pricier option since it was about 20 minutes closer and I figured taking an uber for 20 minutes extra would have costed around the same anyway.
My only regret at this point is that I didn't go for the Sport or Limited trims; I would have been happy to pay a little extra to get the 2.5L and the push button start. But at that point, I would have also potentially considered the Premium Forester. But who knows if I would have been able to get anywhere near the same discount I got with the Premium Trek
