Manual Turbo Wagon: 2005 Subaru Forester XT

This next car comes as a tip from Art C who writes: If I had the cash I'd buy it myself. Looks realtively clean, little rust bubbling but should be an easy fix... 4.44 gears, pulls hard to 80+... fun DD that fits a ton of crap, very good in the snow. If compression and leakdown look good, with confirmation of work done this is a great buy! Shoot, I sold my '05 FXT  manual with 155K and a blown cylinder for $3500... They are rare and have a following.  Find this 2005 Subaru Forester XT offered for $4500 in Pawtucket, RI via craigslist.

  1. Awww Jeez, this car is a 25 minute drive from my home. I was looking for this unicorn about 4 years ago. As of now, the ad is still up (12:32pm EST)....

  2. Oh man that's awesome...except for the eww forward of the fuel filler door. That's a bridge a bit too far for my 4500.

  3. There is a sick modded out version of this on BaT right now that is quite the looker (and goer)...but was 19k last I looked. That seems quite dear but, damn, if these ain’t a longroof junky dream.

  4. What's the point of plugging the show at this point anyway? It's not like there are a lot of viewers

    out there that your little PR appearance is going to convince them to watch the last few episodes of a

    show they don't already watch.
