Wife and I are getting close to pulling the trigger on a touring model, she’s from western Montana and it’s ingrained in her DNA to need a Subaru, but with 4 kids it was only a dream until the ascent came along. Went through ASPCA process to get VIP status, which couldn’t have been easier, btw. (FYI, if whoever you work for has a gift matching program, you can donate $250 and get the aspca deal with your company match) Anyhow, I’d like to trade our explorer instead of selling it myself but one of the 2 dealers we’re comparing is telling me that because we’re getting the VIP pricing, they aren’t going to give us as much on our trade. Now it probably won’t end up mattering as I’ll likely just go with the other dealership (which is a couple hours closer to us anyways) but I was curious, doesn’t Subaru likely reimburse the dealership for the cost of the VIP pricing program? I’m guessing the dealership isn’t making much less once Subaru gets involved. Am I wrong?
