2004 Subaru Forester: Car of the Day by Carchasers

The low-slung body kit negates the ground-clearance advantage of the Forester body, but the slightly taller wagon shape is distinctive and attractive to some. The STi engine would produce 300hp in stock form, but based on the description given by the CAPSLOCK-afflicted seller, there may be another hundred horses lurking beneath the scooped hood.

Tuned cars like this are always cause for pause, as the quality of the work may be suspect. The appearance of random bolts in the cupholder might be a clue. But for an experience mechanic willing to spend some time sorting, this could end up being a bargain.

It’s on eBay in New York for $15k or offer.
