Here's my much loved, long awaited, first Subaru. This one is staying in the family. My 21 year old son is already making plans for when this one becomes his after I get my next car, a Subie of course. Started making those plans on the way home from the dealer... but it's not happening any time soon!
Purchased July 2011 with 173k miles, has 185k now.
When my old car died I just wanted a Subaru, pretty much any Subie in good shape and under $4k. Lucked out with this one though and couldn't resist. Not the most economical car, averages 19 mpg and requires premium fuel, but worth the extra cost. I'm the second owner, first one bought new and traded it in for a new one. Car's in great shape look wise, as you can see.
Had to work some kinks out, don't think the guy ever REALLY used the turbo. Was sluggish, had it serviced, took care of a couple sensors and WOW does it fly! Got my first speeding ticket in over 20 years not too long after that...note to self, don't change lanes and punch it on I-90, lots of cops...
Anyway, we also did the struts. Nothing fancy, just KYB GR-2, I have a bum leg right now, need an easier ride. Lowering it and all that will have to wait a few years.
Here's the pictures I have for now. Not the greatest, took them the day I brought the car home. Hoping to shoot some better ones soon.
