*I have the OEM 17” Subie rims w/ a set of Blizzaks mounted for an extra $400.
*Never raced or abused; adult owned & driven.
*I washed/vacuumed the car every two weeks, waxed it twice a year, and applied Meguire’s leather conditioner twice a year

The Bad:

-The rear brake rotors will need replacing in the not-too-distant future.
-Fuel economy- The only reason I’m selling this car! I commute over 70mi/ day and the car averages ~25 mpg in mixed driving. I bought a Jetta diesel. Man, I miss my Subie! L
-The cruise control decided to stop working as soon as I replaced the front wheel bearings; the “cruise” light flashes and that’s it.
-An alignment should be performed ASAP; I had the front suspension out to replace the drive shaft & tie rod end link.

The Ugly:

-I had a deer hit on the passenger side front a couple of years ago; the fender and door mirror were replaced with OEM parts and painted professionally.
-I would say “normal” wear and tear, especially given the mileage. I washed and waxed her often and kept the interior very clean.
-I’m asking $7,600 obo.
*The car is located in Mt. Morris, NY. Please call (585) 727-7928 or email if interested.

Is the abs light on as well? Looks like you didn't replace wheel bearing correctly/ bought a faulty one/ abs speed sensor is broke. Mine did the same thing last month after replacing.

Wheel bearing
That was my thought as well; I checked resistance on both front speed sensors and cleaned the contacts on them, and they're good. The ABS light has never come on. If I reflash with the Accesport, the cruise light won't blink until after driving for a bit. There are no other sysmptoms...

Where did you get the wheel bearing from? I un knowingly bought a cheap knock off and it didn't have the magnetic ring on the inside of hub that signals contact to the speed sensor. If you bought a cheap wheel bearing then that's it, go to napa or Subaru and get a genuine one from them. Easy fix that will help you no doubt to sell the car.

Bump for a great deal even with problems.
Even after fixing faults who ever buys this will make out big time
