An older Subaru Outback seems like a great kick around-town sort of car. An escape to the mountains for the weekend sort of machine. A let’s head into the desert for some camping type of ride. And this 2002 Subaru Outback wagon I found on Craigslist is just that car.
Here’s the full text from the ad:
2002 Subaru Outback AWD 5 speed manual transmission. Rare only 144k original miles. Clean title and smog certificate to transfer to new owner. Runs well. Normal wear and tear.
Have another car so I haven’t really used it much for the past 3-4 years and it just collecting dust. Parking is pretty had around here so its always a hassle moving it for street sweeping all the time.
New paint and clear coat a few years old.
Clutch about 1.5 years ago.
Also has NEW TIRES installed July 2020; – cause you know, COVID, and I thought it was the end of the world so just in case I needed to get away. It was over $1000 alone. Since 2020 they only have about 2k miles on them.
Plus new breaks and rotors.
Cold air conditioning.
Power door locks with remote and alarm system (two sets).
Registration is up to date, Fresh smog done for sale/transfer.
Asking $4,900 OBO
Sure, it has 144,000 miles but these days that sort of mileage isn’t quite as scary as it once may have been. Hell, I have a car with 133,000 in my garage parked next to one with 334,000. And the asking price here is far more realistic than other cars currently for sale in this hellscape of buying in which we currently exist.
Do you think the car deserves some love and do you think the price isn’t far off from what it’s worth? You can find the full ad with more pictures by clicking here: https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/d/tustin-2002-subaru-outback-sp-manual/7445656931.html
