You Can Get A Bonkers Deal On A New Subaru Right Now .
Subaru has been winning a lot lately. It’s one of the few brands that consistently delivers positive sales figures while some of the other automakers struggle. So you would think with an in-demand lineup deals would be hard to come by, but even Subaru dealers are blowing out inventory with discounts that you may want to know about. As a professional car shopper, I recommend the Subaru brand frequently and have probably brokered hundreds of Subaru deals. In my experience, Subaru dealers tend to be a bit better about the whole internet sales thing than other mainstream brands and it’s not hard to find a deal that a buyer can feel good about.
