Why is it so hard to find a '08-'09 LGT?!
 
Wants:
2008-2009
Black leather interior.
Under 50K.
5eat.
Within 500 miles of seattle.

Am i being to picky? Is it because im in the Northwest? Now that i have the money to put down, i can't seem to find one! What am i doing wrong? Anyone have any where else i can search besides craigslist and autotrader?

be patient, increase search radius on autotrader, and just wait...lol

took me a couple months to find mine...and 05 is a lot more abundant than 08-09

Set an alert on Autotrader and have it email you instantly. Then just wait, that's how I got my spec.B.

Granted, I was looking for a very specific 05 when I found mine, but the key here like everyone else said is to be patient, and increase your search radius.

FWIW, it took me a year and a half to find my perfect LGT wagon... and it was 800 miles away.

How much you looking to spend?

Is not the radius that's the problem, it's the mileage.

Man i know how you feel i have been looking for a GT for months! there was a white one ahwile back,but it had a beige,taupe colored interior. There isn't a single one in Colorado for sale! i am trying to find one with a manual and under 60k miles aswell. Shouldn't people who are leasing them be turning them in by now? or are they buying them outright at the end of the lease if they are leasing them? they're awesome cars thats why they don't want to sell them. I was about to post the same thing as you glad i found the thread. It's a frustrating wait and i'm about to give up finding one. Usually thats how it works if you give up on something then opportunity finds itself afterwards i guess.

I don't know but it seems like 05-07's are extremely limited aswell to find. Hell if i could find even an 06-08 i'd jump on it but i'd really would much rather have an 09 because it had the best styling and features.

you are talking about cars that are not popular to begin with

therefore very hard to find

and pre-facelift > post-facelift exterior wise...lol

took me 9 months to find the right non molested 05 lgt

Daniels 12-25-2012 06:44 AM

i flew to seattle to pick it up 4 days ago. 11,900k 100k miles single owner APB w/ black interior limited 5mt body has scratches but its the least of my worries

Where did you buy it from? I may have looked at that one haha.

The more and more my old impreza breaks, i may just get an 05-07. I can seem to find a few of those with higher mileage and for about half the price that i'd spend on an 09.

i thought id throw this out to maybe make your search on craigslist easier. i use searchtempest.com it searches all of craigslist, try it out. It goes through all the cities at once and saves a lot of time!

Good luck!

To each their own. Somedays I wish I had looked and spent sticker on a SWP 09 spec.B instead of my DGM 08 spec.B purely for the Harman Kardon stereo (and because SWP is soooo SEX). I don't have regrets buying mine brand new four years ago though ;)

I prefer the F version of the JDM turbo models which is most like the revised USDM BL/BP's.

And GL with you in your search. Like the aforementioned advice, I would say WAY EXPAND your radius even if the Pac NW is a breeding ground for Subies.

Find a local member to go look at it for you. Bus or plane. Drive it home. Enjoy!
