    Thread: FS: CT, '04 Forester XT, 5-speed, 110k, $9.5k OBO

    1. 10-03-2011 11:35 PM #1
      Good Afternoon Folks,

      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.

      Another fresh tank of 93 this afternoon, she ran like a champ on those few cold days we had.

      Probate court hearing soon to determine if the deal for the house is equitable. If it doesn't work out for some reason, stage 2 is knockin' at the door haha!

      Looks like the house is a go, motivated (not desperate) seller.

      Should be closing on the house this week, extra cash would be nice to have.

      Thanks for the offer, I appreciate it, but I'm hoping for a straight cash sale for now. Cool truck though!

      She's running super-quiet and smooth with the Rotella T6. Now that the VF39 is installed, I am even more tempted to at least get a turbo-back haha!

      I have a pretty decent standing offer; hopefully she sells sooner than later and I can really get to work on the house.

    13. 01-28-2012 08:20 PM #13
      Buyer backed out, she's 100% back on the market!

    14. 01-30-2012 07:23 PM #14
      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.

      Kind-of-disappointed-that-it-didn't-snow bump!

      I forget how much I like this car every time I take her out to stretch her legs a little. I am almost convinced to keep her for the long haul and put a few house renovations on hold.


      Cars I might trade for with added cash (mileage doesn't really matter to me if they're clean)...
      • '99-01 2.5RS 5-speed
      • '99-00 Civic EX 5-speed
      • '03-05 GTI 1.8T 5-speed
      • '99.5-01 A4 1.8TQ 5-speed
      • '02-05 A4 1.8TQ 5-speed

      Had her out last night to let her breathe, small crack at the top of the windshield. Slightly more negotiable accordingly.

      Home improvement and summer tuition bump!

    20. 03-19-2012 03:36 PM #20
      Having serious withdrawals from selling my bike, so even though I prefer a cash sale, I might very well trade for an '06-07 GSX-R600 or '07-08 CBR 600RR plus cash.

    21. 03-25-2012 05:06 PM #21
      Trades plus cash on your end considered!

    22. 03-28-2012 11:49 AM #22
      Also willing to trade for work on my house hahaha!

    23. 04-05-2012 12:16 PM #23
      New roof and windows for the house are just about done, but I still have to cover property taxes!
