Subaru VIP Partners Program - FAQ:
Q - What is the VIP Partners Program?
A - The VIP Partners Program is a Subaru of America, Inc. (SOA) corporate program offering members of the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association the opportunity to purchase or lease new Subaru vehicles at dealer invoice cost minus 2% through participating Subaru dealerships.
Q - How does the VIP Program work?
A - To participate in the VIP Partners Program, an eligible member must request a dealer visit authorization form prior to contacting or visiting a dealer. To request a form, the eligible member must contact their membership services office. The membership services office will verify the current membership status of the participant and then forward the request to SOA headquarters for processing. Within a few days, the VIP Partners dealer visit authorization form will be mailed via US Postal Service directly to the approved member. The form will include the dealership name, telephone number and contact person. As an introduction, copy of the VIP form will also be faxed to the participating dealer. The form does not obligate the member to purchase a Subaru. The intention of the form is to alert the dealership to the fact that the customer is entitled to VIP pricing.
Q - Who is eligible to participate in the VIP Program?
A - Any VIP Partners customer must be an active member of for a minimum of 6 consecutive months. VIP authorization forms will only be issued to the eligible member and their spouse or domestic partner residing in the same household (address verification required). The VIP Partners Program offer is non-transferable and does not extend to the member's relatives such as parents, siblings, children, etc.
Q - Are used Subaru's also included in the VIP Program?
A - No. The VIP program only applies to new, unused vehicles. New Subaru vehicles are those never titled, not previously reported sold and generally have less than 100 miles.
Q - Can I visit more than one dealer?
A - Under the VIP Partners Program, pricing from dealer to dealer is standardized at dealer invoice minus 2%, so there is no need to shop around. Just choose the participating dealer that is most convenient for servicing.
Q - Will I be able to purchase accessories at dealer invoice cost minus 2%?
A - For accessories that are added to the vehicle at the factory, the price would be dealer invoice minus 2%. The price of any accessories that are added after the vehicle has arrived at the dealership will be determined by the dealer, as the dealer will incur labor costs to install such accessories.
Q - Can I lease a new Subaru under the VIP program?
A - Yes. The capitalization cost for the vehicle on the lease will be dealer invoice minus 2%. Leases can be structured for our VIP Partners customers with an acceptable credit history with a zero down payment. However, a security deposit and the first month's payment are required.
Q - Will dealers accept my current vehicle as a trade in under the VIP program?
A - Yes, most dealers will accept trade-ins. The value of the trade is determined by the participating dealer. Because VIP Partners customers are purchasing a new vehicle at dealer cost minus 2%, they should expect no more than a wholesale offer for their trade. Customers with trades should consider the benefit of selling their trade-in privately.
