I think it's expensive for the mileage on the chassis.

I would want a list of everything that has been replaced on the car, especially suspension. If it has had nothing, there is going have to money spent there. I expect there is little to worry about with the new motor.

It's still a high maintenance and expensive to own option. The OP said they didn't know much about the XTs. They are sort the Subaru problem children. I like mine very much, but they keep my wallet on thin side.

too much money, if you want to find something to buy in those years, buy something for $1500 listed with a problem engine.

buy a 2005-2009 XT with a problem engine in it already, and replace it with a bench built EJ255




buy a 2005-2009 H6 listed with a problem engine in it already. replace it with a JDM H6 250hp,

(each of the above have standard VDC in 2007, and standard SI drive in 2008-2009)
_______
but plenty of threads here about possible buys of 2005-2009 XT.

bg - any used turbo is risky

I would consider a pre-purchase inspection at Awdtuning in Flower Mound if at at all possible.

"the interior is flawless"
except the steering wheel is heavily worn on the left 7pm-11pm area, the rear carpet has bleach stains on the driver side near the door edge/seat, and the caroet in the rear, at the driveshaft hump is messed up too.

WAY too much money.

It's only rare since the turbo hasn't blown up yet. Oh, wait, its says new motor ... that's not rare, they are normal.
