Hey,
Looking at purchasing a 2007 OUtback 2.5I LL Bean Limited wagon. The vehicle is completely blacked out with powder coated wheels. It has 80K miles and is in pretty good shape. The owner just replaced the battery and alternator. It has all the bells and whistles including Nav, but no steering wheel controls. The owner is looking for $14500. Can you guys tell me if this price is in line?

Thanks,

I didn't think that they made LL Bean models without the 3.0-liter engine.

No steering wheel controls also makes me suspect is is just a 2.5i with some extra badges thrown on the back.

There is no such thing as a Limited LL Bean model, so you might want to post some pics so we can see if it is legit.

The vehicle is an LL Bean model with the 2.5I, has LL Bean leather seats, wheels, and badging. I believe the window sticker said Limited LL Bean. If you check edmunds, they also show a Limited LL Bean Package. I will try to get some pics tomorrow. Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,

I wonder what the reason was for the alternator needing to be replaced on an 07 vehicle, unless it had always been a dud alternator. SoCal isn't exactly known for being hard on cars.

Is the car paid off yet, or will you taking over a lien? Just be aware of the extra steps and parties involved. Other than that, it sounds like a great car. Pics would still be nice.

Vehicle was garaged most of its life. Car fax came up clean and showed the owner had been completing all recommended maintenance at the dealer. He initially replaced the alternator because he thought it was going bad. Then he decided the real problem was the battery so he got a new battery and did not switch back to the old alternator. Overall this seems like a winner.

Yeah, definitely a great example. That $14k price is steep, but then it is a very good car, by all accounts. I can't stop looking at the pictures. That color scheme is one of those rare combinations that looks equally at home in the Aliso fire roads as it does pulling up to a dinner party at the Coronado hotel.

Still, don't go into final negotiations until you've test driven it at speed on the freeway. That will reveal any misalignment, blown shocks, etc undesirable behaviors.
