5 Best Presidents Day Car Discounts

2013 Subaru Forester 2.5X Limited
MSRP: $27,790
Average selling price: $25,973
Savings: 6.5%

That savings looks like a cost-of-living increase compared with most manufacturer discounts, but you have to understand that this is Subaru. They don't do sales, they don't do discounts and they certainly wouldn't deign to break out the streamers and bunting for Presidents Day.

That's especially true of the Forester crossover SUV. A 10-year-old Forester still has more than 25% of its original value. Even though the newer models lack the boxy wagon look of their predecessors, they're still the all-wheel-drive vehicle of choice for Bohemian Bourgeois parents trying to balance shuttle runs to lacrosse practice with trips to Whole Foods (WFM) or Trader Joe's. Those combined 24 miles per gallon aren't great and its interior features are starting to lag behind the Honda (HMC) CR-V and (gasp!) Ford (F) Escape, Subaru's added Bluetooth connectivity to all its models and beefed up the options on its pricier trims.

The Limited, for example, comes with rear privacy glass, roof rails, a panoramic sunroof, an eight-way power driver seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and a reclining rear seat, heated front seats, heated mirrors, a windshield wiper de-icer, fog lamps and a touchscreen audio system. Throw in automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a tray for its 68.3-cubic-foot cargo area, a rearview camera and a six-speaker sound system with Apple (AAPL) iTunes tagging capability, and you're looking at the pride of the prep school parking lot.
