I tried the same thing once at the local Ford dealership-- going after hours just to look around with no hassles. No salesman popped out of a car

Before you do anything with that Subaru, make sure you check Edmunds.com and look at the incentives being offered on the car. Some are offering such high incentives that it can get the car to be cheaper than "Invoice" while still getting the dealer an almost sticker profit. If you see the incentives that are available, check the invoice and try to negotiate a fair price based on that and the incentives. Also make sure you watch any financing they are providing and if you are trading in, watch that value too. Dealers love to get people lulled into a false sense of security by giving you a great deal in one area only to get the $$$ back on another side. There are definately some good dealers and salespeople out there, but I hear horror stories day in and day out and work (I work for Carmax) that I like to make sure people are aware of what to look for.
