Hope everybody is having a nice summer and getting ready for the fall, my favorite time of year.
Both unfortunately and fortunately (elaboration to follow), I am putting up my 2004 Forester XT for sale. Within a week of purchasing the car, my realtor called me about a house that I am very interested in so I made an offer.
I do not have to sell the car. As a matter of fact, I do not want to sell the car, I love it. It does everything very well without a complaint. However, I would like to have the extra cash to do some work on the house.
Enough of my life story, on to the Toaster. Clean MA title. She's typical PSM with gray cloth interior. No sunroof. 5-speed that shifts very well with no grinding or any other quirks. Clutch is still healthy and grabs just fine, love the hill-hold feature!
VIN is JF1SG69624G767835.
She has just under 110k miles the majority of which were accrued by a responsible, middle-aged woman who kept up on regular oil changes, brake pads etc. Full disclosure: the timing belt has not been changed to the best of my knowledge.
The body is in good shape but by no means perfect and indicative of the mileage. Paint is good with the expected share of small dings, nicks and chips of daily-driving wear-and-tear in New England. Pictures to follow of any outstanding blemishes.
The car is completely stock with the exception of an OE '07 STI radio that plays MP3 CDs and includes an AUX input jack for iWhatever connection (uninstalled but included with sale). I did not even debadge it or remove the airbox resonator haha!
The car is located in southwestern CT, 06824, roughly one hour NYC. I am relatively flexible to show it. My asking price is $9,500 OBO which means I am expecting to do some negotiating within reason, please be respectful of my time and your own.
Just to reassure everyone that I am on the level and honest in my intentions, please refer to the thread below as a reference to my character and thoroughness. I am a staunch advocate of the Golden Rule and expect the same of others.
Gotta admit, I was skeptical about Rotella T6, but now I'm a believer. The car really does seem to idle quieter and run more smoothly. Could just be my imagination, but for the money, it's hard to beat.
For the couple people that asked, here is a cold start and idle video also showing current mileage. Car had been sitting as you can tell by the thermostat. Idle is slightly high as I was pushing in the clutch pedal. Shell Rotella T6 full syn.
