Cargurus listed price accuracy (new vehicle-subaru)

are the listed sale(dealer) prices listed on accurate? my impression was that they were advertised/posted by dealership, is this not the case?

my experience today:
searching for subaru forester, i ran a search of aged inventory (200+ days) on cargurus (most of them were listed by the same dealership), and reached out to them via their website asking for a quote on specific vin #s. prices advertised on their website are higher than what’s on cargurus (which i expected, fine) and was told their website prices were the best they can do. i smell bait&switch, though i never shopped through carguru pricing this way before so am not sure? has anyone had this experience, and have any tips? i have time this weekend and would love to wrap this up.
thanks in advance!
