  • Long shot #2: SOLD: 2005 Subaru Legacy GT Limited sedan, 5spd, GREAT price!

    Hi again everyone!

    Posting my Miata for sale here turned out so well (thanks John!) I figured I'd take another long-shot and see if any of you were interested in my 2005 Subaru Legacy GT Limited sedan.

    I bought it new in October 2004 from White Bear Subaru and it still is in very good condition so I hate to part with it, but our upcoming move to CA means it's time.

    Priced to sell at only $9000! Why so low when it's in "good" to "very good" condition, and KBB puts only a "fair" condition private sale at $10199 and "good" to "very good" trade-ins between $8600-9100? Because I don't want to pay to get it to California, that's why. So my move & time-crunch is your great deal! Read on for all the details...

    2005 Subaru Legacy GT Limited sedan
    101xxx miles (accumulating slowly)
    Regal Blue Pearl (aka: Dark blue)
    Taupe (tan?) leather interior still in great shape with minimal wear. Taupe interior came with tasteful faux wood (cherry?) accents on the center console.
    5 speed manual with factory short-shift kit
    17" Rota Torque wheels - gold - with 245/40ZR17 Conti Extreme Contact DW's
    17" stock wheels with Blizzak's. They probably have 1 season left on 'em.
    Hawk HPS pads + Goodrich braided stainless lines
    Front rotors & calipers replaced under extended warranty at 71,000 miles in 11/2009. All the calipers were painted red but I never got around to painting the replacement front calipers, so now just the rears are red.
    Heated driver & passenger seats (SO nice in MN winters!), heated mirrors & heated lower part of the windshield where the wipers park.
    Spoiler "delete" (dealer swapped trunk lid & springs with a non-spoiler car before delivery)
    Auto-dimming rear view mirror w/ compass and 3-button Homelink garage door opener
    Factory under-seat subwoofer
    Factory power moon roof
    2 sets of floor mats: black rubber "winter" and tan fabric
    Invisible "bra" installed before delivery; it's still very clear but if you look closely has some surface wear. As far as I can tell the paint underneath is still in great shape.
    Timing belt, plugs & coolant changed less than 1000 miles ago
    I've run Mobile 1 since completing the break-in period
    New 4500k HID headlights & ballasts installed in December 2013. I originally installed a HID kit shortly after getting the car when I got tired of replacing blown headlights (a common thing among these cars) so when one of the original ballasts gave out I decided it was time for a new set.
    Comes with a ready-to-install analog boost gauge + cubbypod to mount it in the compartment above the radio, which I unfortunately never got around to installing
    Car was garaged in Minnesota through 2010 but has been parked in the driveway since we moved to VA (the Miata got the garage spot)
    Clean & clear title in-hand.


    Minuses
    Overall I have been quite lucky with parking lot scars but there is a noticeable "door dent" just in front of the passenger door. The paint isn't disturbed so a PDR can probably make it vanish (see picture)
    There are a pair of vertical scratches in the rear bumper cover from when I had the car parked too far back and the garage door hinge tagged it when it came down
    The right rear door power lock is balky in the cold: it sometimes takes several clicks of the unlock button for it to actually lock or unlock.
    There are no big chips or cracks in the windshield, but it does have wear that comes with being 100,000 miles old, so you see "specs" when the sun is low and shining right at it.


    Logistics
    We move on February 10th, so ideally we will have your car to you (yeah, you know you want this sweet ride!) before then. We live about 30 minutes from RIC - Richmond International, so if you want to fly-in I'd be happy to pick you up in your car.

    If you can't make it here to pick it up before Feb 10th, we can talk other options like meeting half-way, me bringing it all the way but you buying my ticket home, shipping the car to you (that would probably run about $1000), etc...

    If you're interested post questions here or call: 804 464 71-nine-seven (or if you still have my MN "651" cell number in your phone feel free to call that).

    - Josh

    To bad to see both these cars go- replacing them will be a challenge for you.

    If the TT wasn't still going strong, that subie would be in my garage.

      I've got a friend who regrets selling one of these a few years ago. I'm passing this along.

        I suspect I will regret this too. Hard to beat the sensation when you get on it in 2nd gear and the turbo spools and the car GOES... :rockon

          Don't feel like the lone ranger. I did the same damned thing to the Saturn. I figured I would just have them paint over them when they repair the crash damage on the front. I have the insurance money, but Sue didn't get around to taking it to the body shop.

            This is a great car, I drove it for a week when the original couch was down for a bit. I'd throw some springs at it, but it's a great DD - good power, AWD, reliable, and a good price.

            GLWS Josh!

              Thanks Murph! I had forgotten about that. That means that other than Amy, you're really the only other person with significant seat time in it... yet

                          Indeed.

                          I didn't shoot the car when it was all clean and pretty. Here it is at the rest stop that I have been shooting at since 2002.

                              Two long-shot FS ads, and 2 sales. MAC is awesome.

                              Congrats on the new Subie Phil!
