Been a while..... Coming back soon!
« on: August 31, 2016, 08:06:23 PM »
Haven't been to this forum for a while - but hopefully soon I'll have more of a reason too!  Previously I had a 2004 STi that I did a modification thread on here.   Ended up selling it and then leased a 2013 Crosstrek for 2 years.  My wife is now leasing a 2016 Outback which replaced the Crosstrek,  and I'm looking to buy a 2004 Forester XT in the next week or so when we can work out time frames that work for both of us.  I'm super excited - it's a very clean car and has been well maintained with some decent modifications already.

Does anyone recognize it?  Or know of any history on it?  Red flags?
Thanks!  Looking forward to being back   :subaru:

That link didn't work for me, is this the right one?

Noticed it on CL locally for a little higher price than is shown here. Looks like a pretty cool car, but I didn't look too closely since I was looking at a 2017 FXT at the time.

One of my favorite Subarus, tall and fast.

I love those older FXTs.  Nice rugged design without being gigantic.  Love it!

Welcome!  Make it out to an event sometime!  There's a lot coming up this fall.

Congrats! Enjoy the heck out of it!


It has been awhile since I've been on the boards.....same situation, got out of a Subaru in '09 I believe..... miss it too much, just started my search again.  :subaru:
Currently Subaru-less :(
