If you don’t have fifty grand kicking around, though, you could buy a car that needs some love instead. This Forester XT borrows its drivetrain from a contemporary WRX, but it’s got some dead sensors and (seemingly associated) CELs. The seller claims it still runs and drives, despite the issue, but won’t pass inspecton in its native California.
Good news, then, for the non-Californians in the crowd. You can grab this high-riding rally wagon for just a few grand, and huck it around to your heart’s content. Or, until the piston ringlands go, whichever comes first. My money’s on the ringlands.
