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.
