Vehicle Description

ONE OWNER!  5-SPEED MANUAL!  COMPLETE MECHANICAL OVERHAUL DONE AT CARTER SUBARU 5,000 MILES AGO!  ALL WHEEL DRIVE!  SAFETY!  SUBARU RELIABILITY!  QUALITY!  VALUE!  AND 25 MILES PER GALLON! Sierra Gold metallic exterior with beige premium cloth interior. 165HP 2.5L 4-cylinder boxer engine with 5-speed manual transmission, symmetrical all wheel drive. One owner with full Seattle, WA history. Sold new at Speedway Subaru on 06/12/2001 and immediately shipped to Carter Subaru in Shoreline as the original owners were moving to Seattle. Excellent Carter Subaru service history, non smoker (Carfax shows damage was reported with a parked vehicle on 05/25/2004 when a low-speed reversing incident occurred resulting in damage to another car and minor scuffs to the rear bumper of the Subaru, an accident report was filed and an insurance claim was subsequently filed for repairs to the other vehicle. Carfax also shows a side-swipe accident report on 04/03/2008 which resulted in damage to the left side mirror and window trim. An insurance claim was filed and the damage was repaired at a certified collision center, no frame or structural damage was ever done, and of course the title is clean!). L trim with standard equipment, dual manually adjustable front bucket seats with driver side height adjustment, AM/FM/HD stereo, in-dash CD changer, single zone manually adjustable climate control, air conditioning, power mirrors, power windows and door locks, tilt adjustable steering wheel, cruise control, carpeted floor mats, all-weather cargo mat, cargo net, roof rack and cross bars, rear defroster, dual front airbags, mud guards, gray side body cladding and bumpers, auto-off halogen headlamps, fog lamps, intermittent wipers, 15" 5-spoke steel wheels with all season tires in great condition. We just performed a buyers inspection and major service including; oil and filter change, air conditioning recharge, new oxygen sensors, new front lower control arms and front strut assemblies, new front and rear sway bar end-links. On 12/27/2021 at 151,204 miles, at Carter Subaru, a major mechanical overhaul was completed including; engine removal and reseal including new head gaskets, resurfaced block and cylinder heads, new oil pan gasket, new oil pump, new timing belt and water pump, new cam cover gaskets, new spark plugs, new spark plug wires, all new radiator and coolant bypass hoses, all new vacuum lines, new rear wheel cylinders, and new inner and outer tie rod ends, this service was well over $5,000.00. On 04/21/2023, at 156,059 miles, at Carter Subaru, the clutch, flywheel, and all related seals and gaskets were replaced, this was well over $2,500. These three services combined (ours and the two done at Carter Subaru) amount to well over $10,000 in mechanical services done to this Forester! VERY NICE! LOOKS AND DRIVES LIKE IT HAS 50,000 MILES!  YOU MUST SEE AND DRIVE THIS EXTREMELY WELL KEPT AND MECHANICALLY OVERHAULED FORESTER TO APPRECIATE ALL THAT IT HAS TO OFFER!  If you dare to compare our car to any others you will be very impressed and you will be unable to duplicate the amount of mechanical repairs that have been done in the last 5,000 miles! Sold new for $21,690 in 2002, which equates to $36,856 in today's money. Why buy new? Finding a 21 year old Subaru in this condition is nearly impossible, especially in one of the most popular markets in the United States for Subaru sales. Take advantage of the over $10,000 in mechanical repairs done to this car and save thousands by buying quality and value!
