Thanks, moderator, for restoring this sub-forum after I asked about it!
We're planning to sell our Denver-based tow car in about one month, and I thought I'd give the FG folks a first look before I advertise it elsewhere. Details:
2004 SUBARU FORESTER XS, a relatively rare model. Not the turbo, but it adds light
gray body cladding, leather steering wheel and, importantly, rear disc brakes
with a proportioning valve that sends more braking force to the rear wheels when they're heavily loaded.
-- Blue, gray interior, no sunroof
-- 5-speed manual with hill-holder
-- heated seats, CD changer
-- two sets of original alloy wheels with good summer and winter tire sets
-- Draw-Tite 2" hitch and Prodigy brake controller installed and working
-- seven-pin wiring pigtail for full brake and power sharing with trailer
-- 120,000 miles, about 5,000 miles spent towing a lightweight Scamp
16 (for details of its performance, just look up numerous threads I've posted here over the years).
Recent work included a timing belt and head gaskets at 100,000 miles. Front brakes
are now a little warped and could be replaced. There is light
hail damage on the hood, visible at a close look at the right angle of light
I'm unsure about my asking price. When I see a Forester XS for sale
, which isn't often, they seem to list for around $9000.
