2008 FXT

Default 2008 Forester XT Limited 5spd

For sale is my 2008 Subaru Forester XT Limited 5spd. The car is extremely clean. I have owned it since new. The car has been maintained in accordance with Subaru's recommended maintenance schedule. The car has 120k miles on it which definitely brings down its KBB value, but these are 80% highway miles as I travel extensively for work. The car has had its 100K servicing so it has a new timing belt, water pump etc. Front and rear brakes and rotors where done in the last 18 months. Tires are fairly new with about 15k on them.

The car is a limited so it has the HUGE moon roof, full leather, power driver seat, 17 inch wheels, cold weather package which includes heated front seats. The car has the higher-level audio system with a small factory subwoofer, 6disc cd, and mp3 outlet. Power windows, remote entry, etc. Beyond this I have added the towing package, all weather mats, professional window tinting which has its certificate of legality, and I have hard wired it for hook up to an iPhone so it plays and charges at the same time. I have installed WRX sport pedals and a leather MOMO shift knob. The car also has factory side rails and crossbars.

There are two disclosures that I must make in regards to the car. One is that I clipped a deer in 2009 and it did cosmetic damage to the front fender on the driver side. Moodys, a highly regarded shop, repaired all this and the bodywork is unnoticeable. The car looks immaculate.

The second disclosure would be that the car's clutch occasionally slips under high revs and will need a new clutch at some point. Driven at regular revs the issue is not noticeable and the car shifts great, but I wouldn't feel right selling it without that disclosure. I have gotten a quote from my mechanic and was told $900. I would be happy to have it repaired in advance of sale, but as I said, the issue is not currently critical so if you'd prefer to have it done at a later date by your mechanic I am happy to reduce my list price by $1,000.

I am looking to sell quickly and my pricing reflects that. Edmunds suggests that this car, with 120k miles should retail for $16,000. Because of the accident and my desire to sell quickly, I'm listing at $13,000!!! I will sell for $12,000 if you want to fix the clutch yourself at a later date. This car is a true gem and I have taken great care of it. For people that know Subaru's this car will undoubtedly go down as a classic model just like the old Legacy GT wagon and the original "bugeyed" WRX. This car was the last year of this body style before it changed to the much larger and louder "Americanized" forester that it is today. This car was built on the same chassis as that years WRX and with a turbo this thing can really pull and handles great with AWD. I have literally on multiple occasion found notes on my windshield asking if I'd be interested in selling this car. With winter approaching, don't miss an opportunity at a great car for life in New England.

For all the specific's of the car please just Goggle "2008 Subaru Forester XT Limited".

No lowball offers or trades please.

I really want to see them as well, just because it's my favorite year for the Forester.
