I am selling my 2006 Subaru Forster 2.5 XT Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 4cyl Turbo ATX) because the family is growing and I recently purchased another vehicle as a better fit. I bought it several years ago as a commuter because of the low mileage and it was all stock (still is). If you are looking for a solid, cost-effective, reliable car look no further. This Forester has everything one could need in Texas with great ride height, reliability, Cold Air, Heated Seats, power windows, utility, 4wd (the symmetrical system is awesome(think Texas rainstorms and winter ice)), as easy or easier than WRX to mod if you want to. The year model has the same engine and platform as the STI for that year, only it is detuned with a smaller turbo and intercooler. Another great consideration is insurance. This vehicle cost me $200 (yes two hundred) a year in annual premiums (I may miss that the most) to add to my policy and if you want an extended warranty the monthly amount can be very reasonable because of the reliability.
The Driver side rear fender/ bumper has a couple of scratches and a ding in the paint as well as some minor pealing near the front driver side wheel well that I have tried to show in the pictures The plastic wiper cowl cover is faded but does not have any cracks and only noticeable when directly above it.
At the time of this posting, the odometer has a little over 91K and recently had its 90K service at Auto Science in Lewisville TX which cost me $1,400, but the car checked out with a clean bill of health and drives better than when I bought it. Service included a new water pump, fluids, etc... I could have done the bottom service package which is substantially cheaper but I was planning on keeping the car so I went all out.
Bottom Line: It is a solid little car that drives great and if I could I would love to keep it! Gas mileage is OK, Insurance rates are Awesome, Extended warranty coverage is cheap (Currently has it but it is not transferable (Sorry)).
Please note: I am selling the car separately so If I receive a good offer outside of the auction I reserve the right to cancel if there are more than 48 hours left in the auction.
Reserve Price: Thank you for your interest in my Forester: I encourage everyone to bid what you think the vehicle is worth. However, I don’t make my reserve prices available, in order to be fair to other bidders. I appreciate your understanding. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions.

“It is a +10-year-old car so there are some scratches in the paint but there is no oxidation and the interior has a little wear (no tears), I would give it a solid 7 out of 10. The passenger side front door lock has a mind of its own when it comes to the keyless or power lock system. Sometimes it unlocks, sometimes it doesn’t, but that's just personality and who doesn’t love a little personality. I have only opened to moonroof once since owning the vehicle but it was a little sticky. This is it maybe something you would want to address later on if you care about a moonroof. It will need new tires but depending on your plan for the car I see that as a plus. During the time I have owned it I have only had to replace an exhaust sensor perform oil changes, and the 90K mile service. Other than that it has been very trouble-free.”
