Well, I've been looking around for a couple of years for a 2005 Legacy GT wagon 5-speed.
I see them pop up fairly often for sale but they're usually automatics.
So, I decided to pull the trigger on an Outback XT that was for sale in Florida.
I got the car today and low and behold it was not exactly as it was represented in the ad.
It has lots of surface (hopefully just surface rust) under the car. The exhaust is pretty rusty as well.
I guess this is what I get from getting a car close to the coast in Florida.
But, it's my car now and I knew I was going to have to do some work on whatever I bought since it's a 15 year old car.
I'll deal with it.
So the bad:
Right off the bat I couldn't get the car inspected and registered since it's throwing codes.
I have these three preventing me from inspection: P2004, P007, and P009.
From the limited research I've done, the first two have to do with the TGV valve. Considering doing the delete mod for those but I can't seem to find anybody selling these currently.
Not sure what the P2009 code is yet. Going to be taking the car to the mechanic soon.
I just hope this car doesn't end up being a basket case.
Future mods coming. I want to do some suspension mods (possible koni inserts, etc.) and lots of 'go fast' parts.
There's a Subie tuner in Nashville that I plan on visiting at some point.
Gotta get it running well and registered first!
