Giving my 08 to a grandson. It has 180K miles. It has had the HG replaced and timing belt with idlers, tensioner, and water pump. Glad I took care of it. I planned on keeping it for 200K but decided at the age of 72 wife needed a new car.

We have never bought a car that was not basic transportation. Got the Turbo model. Hard to believe that a 2.0 liter can pull 250 HP. Hope she lets me drive it.

It was the premium. Very difficult to find one with the XT and with minimum options. Althouth the Premium comes pretty well equipped.

The price I got was $3900 under invoice and $28,985 OTD.

And this is the last year the XT engine will be in the Forester.

You won't regret it! We owned a 2004 Subaru Forester XT that we sold for an Outback. I wish I had kept it as a 2nd car. Great power, very reliable and lots of fun to drive. Enjoy!

Welcome to the turbocharged Subaru world, Al! smile2 Yes, sounds like some serious deals out there on the 18's. I'm nearly tempted to go for one myself. What's the oil plan? Did you get some free oil changes thrown in?

Wait, what?

Yep, no plans at this moment for a turbo in the 2019 Forester. Everyone is hoping that the new 2.4 in the Ascent will eventually make it's way into the Forester in another year or so.

^Love the original XT!

Man.. Livin' it up Al!!

Love it! Having owned a Forester (Legacy and XV Crosstrek), the Forester is by far the most Subaru for the dollar in every way possible IMO.

That's a really good OTD price as well, unless your sales tax rate is nothing! laugh
