      @Calibre' JTG Kelly Blue Book is owned by AUTOTRADER, who sets used car prices as high as they can. It is total BS. Corporate America Monopoly at it's finest!!! I am telling you the wholesale value is less than $3K and if you haggle like an Afghani market rug salesman you will own that car for less than 4K.

      Calibre' JTG  5 months back

      @Dave Slingbart it has the 2.4l I4 engine in it and I looked up the price for one with 110k miles and it's around 4-6k on Kelly Blue Book everyone I've known that has one says they are reliable transportation and are fuel savers so I'm considering buying it if they still have it available it's selling for 6900

      @Calibre' JTG the V6 is fast, my co worker has one, but it is a cheaply made vehicle. The 4 banger probably only worth $3000 really.

              I love my subie, dont know much about the automatic transmission but the manual transmission is bulletproof.

                Did he just judge Subaru transmissions from a rental car? Im sure you're aware of the amount of abuse that people put into rental cars?

                  Scotty, LOVE your channel (and your "Live Free or Die" sign!). Just got a 2009 Impreza hatchback (5-speed) with 80K. Great car. Only problem: started making a kind of thunking sound on slow, tight turns. Some people thinks it's the Center Differential Viscous Coupling. Is this a disaster?

                      Scotty, how much does Toyota pay you to praise their product? I’ve owned an ‘81 Corolla Tercel and an 86 Toyota Celica. I’ve rented newer Camrys too. Hated the lack of power. Sucks working on Toyota suspension. I’ve also owned MANY Hondas and I still own a ‘99 Civic. But after trading in my wife’s 2001 Civic EX for a 2003 Subaru Forester we much rather own a Subaru. You can’t compare a Subaru to a Toyota. Does Toyota offer symmetrical AWD? So far we’ve owned the ‘03 Forester 2.5X, a 2003 WRX that I still own, a 2007 Forester 2.5X, and a 2012 Legacy that my wife currently drives. We’ll never go back to a Toyota. I’ll still keep my Honda though.

                        AWD can cost more in repairs, though.

                        “Outdated design” is not a good enough excuse to say the boxer engine is not good, and you still never give a reason to how their obsolete. Nearly everything in modern cars is technically “outdated design” because manufacturers would rather stick to what works. Subaru’s are great cars.

                          I was going to buy a 2018 automatic Subaru Crosstrex with CVT, but now...no.👍

                              the transmissions aren't nearly as bad you make them out to be. But I currently own 3 subarus (04 forester 5 speed, 14 forester XT CVT, and 11 WRX STI 6 speed). My Father also owns an Ascent and its smooth as hell, but were subie fans and def biased

                                Do you drive on lots of flat roads? I'd assume the CVT is better for that

                                The worst thing I have ever made: buy a Subaru.
                                I want to sell it only 2 years old. I hate this Forester. I will buy a German car again. My first and last Japanese

                                    1000 dollars for a 2008 wrangler! Lol that’s a 16 thousand dollar car. Yeah I’d buy one for a thousand bucks too

                                      Scotty, why do you always pick on the transmissions of mazda, subaru, nissan and chryslers ?? The new model cars must surely be better these days ???

                                        Our 08 Tribeca is a pos. 127k miles and the transmission fluid is black and it’s starting to clunk. Constant suspension problems and it also burns 1 quart of oil every 500 miles. Wish it was totaled last year when we hit a deer.

There's a reason why people hang on to them so long and there aren't a lot of used ones on the market: they work. Sure, every car company has a few bad ones that slip out, but there aren't any Subaru models that seem to be inherently bad.

Would crunch in second gear when engine was warm, but not when it was cold. The front seats were like slabs of concrete,very uncomfortable on long distance journeys. Kept it just 1 year and sold it. Worst car I have had the displeasure of owning
