We have a similar situation in the San Francisco CL and Seattle does as well. Once in a while, you'll see really crazy deals from Forester owners that just want to get rid of parts.

I noticed that in San Francisco, most are pre 2005 and there are hardly ever XTs, unless they are automatics. I looked for a while on CL in San Francisco to find a barely used XT in manual, but none surfaced. Guess that's a good sign about the car :)

Or that the majority of Forester owners in SF are just inclined to drive NA-AT in the city lol

It's tough to find an XT in SF, yet almost every Forester I see in the OC is an XT! Makes me feel slow... :(

Geographics as they are..............

It is rare....very rare to see a Forester of any kind here.

Since we bought ours last Sept I have seen a total of 3 others local.

I have seen only a few more Outbacks and not a single STI or WRX

Yeah, I see a ton of Foresters here in the Bay Area; both SF and SG body styles. But very few are XT's, even less are manual transmission. Good supply of shells for the future though if I should ever need one!

- I'd buy that for a dollar!

I think Portland has to be near the top. In the paper the other day, it stated that nearly 2% of all Subarus (which has a 0.7% market share in the U.S.) were sold in Portland Metro. Not Oregon... Portland Metro!:)

Wow, that Portland Statistic is EXACTLY what I estimated, when I was there last year on vacation. I was only in town 2 days.

Yup... they're everywhere around here. My surreal moment occurred two year ago driving to Mt. Hood to ski. In front of me, 5 various Subaru's including Outbacks/Foresters. I'm in my Forester and behind me was another Subaru. 7 Subarus in a line with no other vehicles in site... and it wasn't a group meet!:)
