For sale: 1997 Subaru Forester

I've just moved overseas and I don't want this to collect dust at my Dad's place, so here it is.
This is a one-family car - not quite one owner, but collectively we've owned it since new and it's been very well looked after.


More photos in this flickr album:

2.0L 4-cylinder engine
All Wheel Drive, 5sp manual, with low-range gear
220 000km on the clock
Power steering
Power windows
Air conditioning
Cruise control
Central locking (remote starting to fail, but keyed central locking still works fine)

After-market additions:
Custom alloy bullbar
Custom steel sump-guard / bash plate
Custom alloy rear bumper / tow bar (with removable tow ball)
King springs (increased ride height / load capacity)
1.5 inch lift blocks
Roof racks
Tinted windows
Pioneer stereo with Bluetooth handsfree set-up
UHF radio (but needs new aerial because it was stolen…)

Very good overall - has been looked after by our family since new.
Engine/drive train - very good - a bit leaky around the rocker covers like most older subies.
Panels - very good - nothing more than a few very small dents.
Paint - average/good - lots of small chips from standard wear-and-tear, and some top-coat flaking off from rear door (see pictures). No rust.
Interior - very good - no tears or other damage to upholstery or interior trims.

Karalee, Queensland.

$6000 - but please make an offer if you don't think that's fair!

Because I'm now residing in Canada, please PM me here, or email: tom_semple at
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!
