I love my old school (down to my 84 Brat) and usually abide in the Old School area, but I need your input if you could.
Local private party here in Kennewick, WA, has a 2000 Forester for sale, before they put it in the paper they wanted to know if I was interested.
5 sp. Manual
170,000 with new timeing belts.
lots of extra's, power seats, heated what ever..
Don't know anything about these new--er, Subies. Ej. motor I guess? don't know... will have to go look.
Any quick thoughts? I will road test and poke... but don't know much other than that. Looking at it for my daughter. She drives, I fix. It's what dads do, or are these a mess of a rig? I am average, home mechanic. I keep my old school rigs running along with my 2000 Ford Taurus, so I only pretend to be a mechanic, but I do keep them running.... most of the time.
Your words are appreciated.
