    2008 Subaru Legacy 2.5i - 5 Speed


    I am selling my second car to reduce expenses.

    It is an 08 Legacy 2.5i with a 5 speed transmission and 136,813 on the clock. Also has a sunroof and trailer hitch with wiring harness. I installed the trailer hitch and used it to carry bicycles and to tow a motorcycle two or three times. Also comes with spare wheels with snows which have some life left, but I would replace them. Spare wheels do not have TPMS sensors, so when mounted the low pressure icon is shown on the dash.

    I just did:

    Oil Change
    Power Steering/Alt Belt
    Spark Plugs/Wires
    Front & Rear Pads/Rotors

    Previous owner did head gaskets, water pump, etc at 85k. I did have paperwork detailing this but have been looking and can not locate it. Noel did get me the carfax, so I can send that if interested. Tires were also replaced by previous owner and have a lot of life left. I would estimate 80%.

    The negative:

    Exhaust is starting to get a little noisy. Bolts retaining exhaust shields on the headers are rusted away and rattle at certain rpm. Otherwise everything works as it should. Defects are highlighted in pictures.

    Posting here for $3,500.

    How about a trade for a 2009 Ford Focus, 4dr, 5spd?
    New struts, coil springs, shocks, tie rod ends, stabilizer bar links, rotors/pads, motor mounts.
    Gets great gas mileage to help you reduce your expenses.
    Tires at ~65-70%, tinted windows.
    Majority of mileage on the car is from a little old lady in CT.
    Its literally the Energizer Bunny of cars.

    How many miles on that thing now?! I can't believe it's still on the original clutch.

    Without going out and checking, I "think" its maybe like +/- 270. I'm confident its going way over 300.
